Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books! Yes! Finally the next book in The Harden Series! I’ve been waiting for this baby since I finished book #2! I’m so sad it’s over! It was such a hot and steamy book. I forget just how well the author has written these characters. They love, and love hard, and are fiercely protective of their own. Be prepared for an explosive read on this one, you’ll thank me when you’re done! So, have I mentioned just how awesome this book was? Oh boy, I laughed, I cried, I giggled, and my heart broke. I can’t forget to mention I tore off half of my finger nails as well – darn suspenseful plot lines! Needless to say, there was definitely not a lack of detail or descriptions. Things were laid out right before you as you read and they were described to make very little effort visualizing what was actually going on. It was a breeze to read and automatically picture the scene. I think I’m definitely more partial to this story, and these characters. Tristan and Harper have some sizzling hot chemistry. Tristan is a cocky, sexy, super stud that falls head over heels in love so hard he doesn’t know how to react. It’s SO fun to read! Harper takes no crap and knows how to put Tristan in his place. Their love for each other is fierce. Whew, those bedroom scenes are pretty hot. Even the scenes leading up to them are pretty sensual. Have I mentioned that Tristan is growly?! Oh, yes he sure is and it is oh so entertaining! Prepare yourself for a super charmer here and be prepared for some great teasing! I absolutely loved this book, I wish it wasn’t over, but sadly it is. This author writes a phenomenal book and really knows how to write some excellent chemistry between ALL of the characters. While this is a stand alone, I think it is important to note that you should definitely read all of the books, so for now, book 1 and 2 before this one. The story will flow better and you’ll be able to read about the characters at the beginning up to the present. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.

Harper Andrews has dealt with more in her short lifetime than many have to deal with over a long span. The latest news has really knocked her down and the last person she needs is the one her dad keeps forcing on her. Why does she find herself so attracted to him when there is another less arrogant one right in front of her? Tristan Page doesn't need to be around the young and beautiful redhead but he can't seem to stay away from her. Truth be told, he doesn't want to be anywhere else let alone have anyone near her. He would go to the ends of the earth to protect her if necessary. This is the third book in the series . The other two books should be read first for continuity as well as story-line and character information. I loved Harper's independence and self-preservation. Tristan is so protective of her it made my heart swell. This story continues where Ultimate Deception (book #2) left off. The writing for this book is so captivating I found I had a difficult time putting it down. I have read the other books in this series and everything by this author and am eagerly looking forward to the next installment in this series. I will definitely recommend this book and series to my friends.
