Toni Vincent's last relationship ended with violence. Since then, she's decided she's better off without men. But when she finds her young seventeen year old neighbor, Nathan, unconscious and beaten, this is one man she can't abandon. But helping Nathan means trusting Detective Brian Barnes, another man who hurt her in the past. It's something she's just not sure she can do.

Detective Brian Barnes has seen one too many criminals beat the system. He's burned out and regretting a lot about his life. At the top of that list is how he dealt with Toni Vincent when he was wounded. At the time, he couldn't stand to look at himself, much less have someone he failed care for him. Now she needs his help and he refuses to fail her again. But keeping her alive requires keeping his heart out of it. Something not easy to do when trapped in a romantic mountain retreat, even if it is the safest place for Toni and her unexpected charge.

With danger around every corner, it's hard to know who can be trusted, especially for three people who have been burned before. But they may just find the best family is the one not tied together by blood.

Pretty good story, but way more drama than suspense.

Compelling from start to finish, Book 4 of When the Mission Ends series. Brian Barnes a Detective on the police force is back at work after being shot and having a long recovery. He goes on a call that puts him face to face with the one person who tried helping him during his recovery. Toni Vincent. She's not entirely happy seeing him after he basically told her to go away and the feelings she had for him that she thought she was finally getting over, is not over. Toni does know that Brian will protect her neighbor Nathan and will do everything to find out who assaulted him. Unfortunately for Brian he is being pushed back at every turn by the higher ups in the police department. Not knowing who he can trust he does the one thing he never thought he would do, he quits the force. Taking Toni and Nathan away to a mountain cabin to keep them both safe, he finds the one thing he never thought he would ever have. A family. Brian realizes his feelings for Toni are still as strong as ever and he enjoys Nathan's company. He just needs to find out who is pulling the strings and keep all three of them alive. Brian has been a factor in the Mission Ends series. I didn't really think I would like him so much. As usual Christi has you pulling for him and hoping that he finally gets to have what he's wanted all along. Non stop suspense that will keep you up all night reading.
