Until AJ Monroe left Indiana after college, he had always lived in his identical twin brother’s shadow. He had made a life for himself in Denver, Colorado, away from Jessie, away from Indiana. But when AJ feared for his brother’s safety, he left everything behind to step back into the shadow he thought he had outgrown. Finding his brother was AJ’s only concern…until he met Jessie’s girl.
Fiercely independent, Rina Abbot hid her true situation from everyone, including her best friend, Jessie. Out of money and unable to care for her rescue dogs she had no choice but to accept the help of the handsome stranger with a familiar face. Afraid to trust him, she tried to ignore the feelings he stirred within her as they searched for his missing brother.
But secrets never stay secrets for long.
Finally, open about their feelings for each other, Rina’s secrets began to wreak havoc on their lives. Would Rina’s secrets force AJ to give up his dream of loving Jessie’s girl?
Romance and suspense make this an exciting read. AJ worries about his brother, who he has not been able to reach and finds a woman almost passed out on his porch. He gets her to the hospital and learns about her, Rita’s, dog rescue. AJ does what he can to help with it and finds Rita has a lot of problems.
Once he finds Jesse he learns the truth.
I highly recommend this, and all books, by this amazing author.
