Goodreads synopsis: 
He’ll risk everything to rescue her…

Ex-military man Thom Grayson has debts to pay. So when a plane crashes in the mountains near his cabin, he’s hired to find the wreckage—and the kidnapped woman believed to be the sole survivor. But when he locates Geneva, or “JJ” as she insists on being called, she’s not at all what he expected.

JJ isn’t sure she can trust the mysterious man who’s come to her rescue. But she has secrets of her own—secrets she’ll do anything to keep. So she’ll follow his instructions and keep her distance to get off this mountain alive without blowing her cover. As dangerous conditions force them together—and the undeniable chemistry between them ignites—he’ll protect her at any cost. But when the morning light comes, will the truth tear them apart?

5 Stars

This is the second book in the Montana Justice series by B.J. Daniels.

Both Thorne and JJ are broken people. Thorn is hiding out from a past he has shared with very few. We don’t really learn much much about him until the last third of the book. And JJ seems like the innocent victim until you realize she had been staying at Geneva’s house without her knowledge. Not that Geneva was an angel. Far from it. She was so spoiled that her grandfather took away her quite hefty allowance. 

Geneva’s grandfather calls in the big guns and asks a favor of his judge friend. And the judge is the one who puts Thorn on the case of finding JJ when she is mistakenly taken from Geneva’s apartment in the middle of the night.

I enjoyed the dual romance storyline in this book. And it did not detract from the main story at all. The Judge, Helen, the Grandfather’s attorney and the grandfather make quite an interesting secondary plot line. I really liked this aspect. And I love how it all got wrapped up at the end even for the more seasoned adults.

This was exactly right up my alley.  But those looking for the extra sexy read, you won’t exactly find that here. This is a hard won happily ever after story that I really appreciated. I think the suspense far outweighed the romance/sexy part of the book. Just how I like a book to be.

If you love a good romantic suspense, you have to check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.

I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
