This is the 3rd book in the Men of Summer Series and it appears to end the Men of Summer series. This is Zack Richards & Grace Maddox story. Zack knows Grace knows something that could get her killed but his secrets are far worse because they affect his life AND her life and what he knows are far deadlier. Grace has been marked for death by someone in her own family and it’s a race against time to try and prevent her death which is where Zach comes in because he knows he is the only man for this job. They have a complicated past which is mired in angst, pain, passion, and betrayal- Zack is still there to protect her and shield her and provide protection from all that will hurt Grace. But what will Zach do when Grace finds out that one of the secrets that he has been keeping has been something she has been seeking answers to all her life? The truth will leave her devastated and could send her reeling in despair.
Grace is very innocent and sweet. She has suffered due to the upbringing ( by her Mother) and loss in her past ( of her father ) yet she has loved Zach pretty much all of her life. She has stayed strong under pressure and ended up opening her heart to Zach even though she knew she may end up hurt by Zach but this is the man she has loved forever. Their past and present collide as they are on a collision course to out a traitor. As they work together, the sexual tension is intense and hot. I love how Grace gave as good as she got and how she didn’t let the men get away with their slights. There is a great supporting cast of characters who I would love to see books written about—her cousins and half-brothers – two that come to mind are Beau Remi and Mad. I loved how this story clicked for me , it ended in an epic climax and made everything which started back in 2006 with Loving Lies completed in 2016 with Dirty Little Lies- what a fantastic wild ride.
My rating: 4.8 stars *****
