Short description from goodread :

In his old life as a Federal agent, Wyatt Blake lived wild. But now that he's parenting a teenage son, "square" is a name he wears with pride. Too bad Jordy doesn't agree. The only one who gets through to the boy is Kai Reynolds. Sure, she seems respectable now, but she used to be quite wild herself. Or so Wyatt's heard.

Danger finds Jordy, and drags Kai in, too. As Wyatt and Kai investigate the drug dealers targeting his son, they uncover a deadly link to Wyatt's own past. Now this unlikely duo needs to find the wild side each had thought long buried--for Jordy, and maybe for each other.


               Wyatt Blake came back to his hometown with his son after the death of his wife and Jordan’s mother. He took a boring job and takes care of his son but for Jordan this life is hell. He hates this father he didn’t know 7month ago so strict and that made him leave the life he knew. They can’t communicate properly …until Kai, the owner of the music shop of the town intervenes. Jordan, called by her Jordy, comes everyday after school in secret, enjoying the music and trying to evade his life. When his father discover that he is quite aggressive with Kai but  after some researches he starts to admire her.  After sometimes, and telling her more than he wanted about his and Jordan’s life, he accepts her help and advice.

But even in this small town , the danger, Wyatt wanted to avoid to his son, is present and soon Jordan is in trouble. With the help of Kai, Wyatt start acting like his old self again, a federal cop and try to put an end to the problem. However, the danger wasn’t what he first thought and his old enemies are there for their revenge.

My opinion:

          Interesting, i saw more the suspense in this one ( in comparaison with the first book of this subgenre i've read " The Final Mission") and i loved it. It was also more violent than the first book I’ve read but still quite mild. I loved the way Kai starts progressively to understand Wyatt and how he is starting to loose his attitude with her.
The origin of his life with Jordan is well thought to adapt to this kind of behaviour and story.

Very good for the readers who want a short story filled with romance and a bit of conflict parent-children.

Score:  4/5

  1. Not sure if I'd like this one because of the family drama-ish content, but you really made me curious. Hmmmmmmmm..

  2. I should pick up a Harlequin Romance. I haven't read one in years. I am not sure why. I used to really enjoy them. I will have to tuck one in between another read. Thanks for your review.
