Review: The story was on the edge of your seat good. Angle and Evan have like a cat and mouse chase. Angle always slips away and Even always finds her. One night Even arrives at Angels’ campsite and things start to change really a love-hate relationship. One night Evan drops the big secret he did not want Angel to find out but had to do… Angel felt betrayed and wanted to get as far away from him as possible. Now he has to figure out what to do to save himself and Angel.
It takes off from the very beginning and leaves me wanting to turn each page. Nice action type romance with just the right amount of heat to keep me wanting more. The characters banter is humorous at times and others I wanted to help them along. Evan is like any cowboy the alpha sexy male and Angel is more independent then most woman of the time period.
A sexy romantic read you will not want to put down.
