Growing up in a big adoptive family, gorgeous small-town attorney Cam has always had a life rich with love. But the one thing he’s missing is the perfect woman to grow old and raise a family with—and send sparks flying on those cold Montana nights!
Still, Cam knows if it wasn’t for his caring parents and brothers, he wouldn’t be where he is today, so he tries to pay it forward whenever he can. And if the client happens to be a modern-day damsel in distress, he’ll happily don a suit of shining armor. This time, his sister-in-law’s best friend Grace is in serious trouble, and Cam’s determined to get his smart, beautiful client off the hook. But as attorney-client privilege brings Cam and Grace closer than they ever imagined, the sexual tension heats up. It’s clear before the gavel comes down that the verdict is going to be red hot!
This is another great addition to a series that I have enjoyed immensely, a premise that is full of heart as these brothers are brought together by the love of one man who changed their lives. We are treated to another love story featuring Camden and Grace, a romance that started years ago.
Grace Sinclair has come home to Sterling, Montana to stay. She left years ago to get away from her parents and a man who she thought she loved, but now it is time to come back. She wants to build her catering business and believes the people from home will help. She realizes she will have to face some demons from her past, her unloving parents who are still a part of the community and Camden, a man who hurt her years ago.
Camden Whitman knew the minute Grace came back as small town gossip is a key ingredient to life in Sterling. He grew up in the area along with his adopted brothers, sons of a man who gave them a second chance in the world. As a lawyer, he is in a position to help Grace through a legal battle, as long as she accepts his help; she is extremely stubborn and still angry after all these years.
I am a sucker for small town romances and this one has been a fun series. These brothers are as sexy as hell and I love how they feel about each other, their bond is tight as they have gone through a lot to get where they are today.
Grace is very likeable, albeit extremely stubborn when it comes to her past. She stays away from Camden as much as possible for a year after she comes back and then when he tries to help, she pushes him away. Even with all the evidence she does not believe that someone is trying to ruin and then hurt her when things get dangerous. However he is stubborn too and he is determined to protect her and solve the mystery of the illegal non-profit agency that seems to point to her.
I adore Camden, a thoughtful man who is struggling with his feelings for Grace. They believed they were in love once but misunderstandings over the years have left them at an impasse. I like that he is putting everything on the line to help her clear her name, even if she does not want his help. But with the tenacity Camden possesses, she eventually sees the danger and the more time they spend together the more they realize that maybe they both were a little at fault all those years ago. There are additional issues that Grace must face including an abusive relationship and her mother’s continued betrayal, but I love that Camden is there for her though it all. You can feel the chemistry between them, the sizzle in the air is electric whenever they are together.
This is a fairly fast read, the pace works well and I enjoyed the mystery. I thought the ending was wrapped up too quickly and there are some unanswered questions but I did not predict the villain and was surprised at the twist. Although this is the third book in the series about four brothers, you can easily read it as a standalone; the author brings the reader up to speed easily. This story features family dynamics and small town life and many of the characters from the previous books come and go throughout the story, such as Martin the amazing man who kept these kids together and I enjoyed seeing his love life come alive. I am excited about Michael’s story which is next, the last holdout from love. Enjoy this small town romance with some mystery and danger to bring excitement to the story.
I give Her Forever Hero by Melody Anne 4 stars!
