I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


He won’t hesitate to put his life on the line…but will he ever risk his heart?
Falling for Justice Garrett was a high point in Patience McGraw’s otherwise awkward adolescence. Even after he disappeared, Patience never forgot the boy who captured her heart. Now, he’s back in Fool’s Gold, California, and her passion for him is as strong as ever. But how can she trust that he won’t abandon her again-and her daughter, too?

When bodyguard Justice Garrett was a young man, witness protection brought him to this idyllic town and he never forgot its warmth, or the sweet beauty of his childhood friend. He’s returned to open a defense academy, and the Patience he once knew is all grown up. He can’t resist her smile, or her curves. But Justice’s past doesn’t make him husband, or father, material.

Patience and Justice think they’ll succumb to just one kiss… Then one more… Okay, just one night together. But they might learn that falling in love is beyond anyone’s control.



I really liked Patience and her spirit, she suffered a lot in life and still manages to have dreams and hope. Plus she has a great daughter and a second chance with her best friend. Justice disappeared and it broke her heart, but now he’s back again and this time is for good, so these two totally deserved a fresh start.

I understood Justice reasons for staying away and her drama with a relationship all those years ago, but he could never forget that pretty girl and now she’s even better. So it was really hard for him to attempt to keep it casual.

I loved Patience family. Her mother got a second chance in love and after all the heartbreak her daughter can have a bigger family now. They are perfect together and Justice made a great decision in moving to Fool’s Gold.

I don’t want to spoil the news and those little things, but this was a happy book for me and a great addition to this series.
