…survive the truth?

**My thoughts**
When I started reading this book, I felt like I already knew the town of Golden and many of its inhabitants. They were so familiar. And then I realized that this was the third book in a series and I read the first book a year ago. I did miss the second book, but was still able to fully enjoy this story. So I would say it works quite well as a standalone book, though you will enjoy reading all of the books in this series. 

Serena and Logan both have huge secrets in their past that they would prefer to leave hidden. Unfortunately, life isn't going to let them do that. Even worse, they have completely fallen for each other, despite their best efforts not to. Can their romance survive those horrible histories?

I really like the characters in this book, even if I am not a fan of how distrusting Deke and all of his brothers can be. I will acknowledge that I can't blame them for wanting to look out for their families, though. And Logan isn't very trusting, either, but is looking out for his grandmother, as she has been swindled in the past. So devotion to family is a saving grace for all of these men.

I really like Serena and felt protective of her. She is determined to make a go of her new life. She regrets her past, though it wasn't totally her fault. And she has been working to make restitution.

You know that the truth is going to erupt at some point. You're on pins and needles while you're waiting for the big revelations to happen, because at the same time, you want Logan and Serena to be able to fall for each other in a big and honest way and to work things out. And I love the town of Golden. It sounds like a quaint place I wouldn't mind visiting one day. I am looking forward to more stories from here.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to provide a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
