I've loved this whole series and this book was a great addition! In a way I missed the small town, but the flip side of that was that I loved that Zoe took this story out of Pine Harbor and into a totally different environment altogether. Liane shows up unexpectedly at Hope's in Pine Harbor on a break between tour gigs after an anxiety rush on stage in Savannah. And after unexpectedly seeing her ex who has a jack hat to the nth degree. Hope lets her hide out for a couple days then calls in reinforcements in the shape of Dean. Dean and Ryan are friends. Dean is/was also a police officer, now in the security business with Zander. Hope hires Dean to travel with Liane is hopes to provide that shield that she needs. Hope does this without even knowing what transpired. Knowing Liane would be resistant, Dean does manage to soften her and she agrees to take him on as a "bodyguard"
And body guard he does. Liane is in the middle of a tour with her band, the tour is winding down but there is heavy travel and a hectic schedule and the tour bus now has another passenger. Liane is attracted to Dean. He to her also, but reminds himself he needs to keep this professional and all the other things he tells himself to stay away. Liane isn't really letting him do that. Their flirting has starts and stops and then a few kisses leads to more and it was nice to watch this unfold between them. Meanwhile he was just flat out good for her. There are a couple of tense moments in the book and I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop in a big way, thankfully it didn't. And that's not a spoiler.
Zoe writes a great story, these two were fully developed and she gets the steam factor in there along with the familiar characters we know from previous books. This was a great story. I recommend this one. Sean's story is up next.
