Story Overview:
Return to Haven Point, where New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne proves there's no sweeter place to fall in love

Protecting the streets of Haven Point isn't just a job for police officer Wyn Bailey, it's a family tradition. But lately she's found herself wanting more, especially from her boss—and overprotective brother's best friend—sexy chief of police, Cade Emmett. The only problem is getting Cade to view her as more than just a little sister.

Cade's hands-off approach with Wyn isn't from lack of attraction. But his complicated past has forced him to conceal his desire. When Wyn is harmed in the line of duty, Cade realizes the depth of his feelings, but can he let his guard down long enough to embrace the love he secretly craves?

My Review:
I'm really liking this series. I came into it late, but I'm definitely a converted fan.

In this book, there is a simmering romance between Wyn, a cop, and Cade, her boss, the police chief. Definite conflict of interest, especially since Cade is almost an adopted member of Wyn's family. He grew up coming to Wyn's home when his own home life wasn't the best and he's Marshall's best friend. But to complicate things, Cade isn't being completely honest with what happened when Wyn's father was shot while on the job doing the job that Cade is doing now.

There's a lot going on in this small town and it was fun to see it through the eyes of its police force. I liked the story, the romance, and all the side stories that came out through the course of the book. I especially loved Andie's story and understand that book is next. I can't wait to read it. 

Overall, this was just a thoroughly enjoyable book. Wyn and Cade have been friends and colleagues for a long time and it was fun to see them transition to more. Wyn's family is interesting. I felt for her mother, and all the losses she's suffered. You certainly can't blame her for being overprotective. But I do love this family of cops and this little town.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
