Annalise “Leesa” Avalon never realized that one sentence could change her life until one of her students revealed his crush—and within twenty-four hours she finds herself under fire. After a grueling investigation that turns her life upside down, she steals away to Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, with a new identity to try to pull herself back together and figure out her next step.

From the outside, Cole Braden lives a charmed life. He’s a top orthopedic surgeon with a thriving practice, strong family ties, and friends he adores. But there’s a lonely spot inside Cole that no one can see. He has an enormous heart—and a painful past—but the desire to love and be loved is too strong to ignore.

A chance encounter brings Leesa and Cole together, and the attraction is immediate and intense. But a relationship is the last thing Leesa needs—and the only thing Cole wants. Long talks, heated moments, and deep connections are hard to resist, but the harder Cole tries, the more Leesa pulls away. Cole might truly be the right man for Leesa, but is Leesa the right woman for him?

I'm loving the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor! Cole is like the perfect man - kind, loving and protective. I loved the way he and his family embraced Leesa and supported her as she dealt with aftermath of a student's accusation. Their romance happened really quick, but it still felt genuine. I think when you find the right person, there isn't a schedule for you to fall in love. I fell in love with this family when I read Healed by Love, and I can't wait for Sam to have his turn in the next book.

I received an ARC for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.
