It was the friends-with-benefits proposition he never saw coming…
While Arran Adair might have followed the call of wanderlust in his younger years, it isn’t the reason he stayed away from Ardnoch. Home now, desperate to put the sins of his past behind him, and rebuild his life in the Scottish Highlands, Arran could never have predicted Eredine Willows. The Ardnoch Estate Pilates instructor is a complicated mystery and one Arran can’t help but want to solve.
Eredine has spent the last eight years hiding in Scotland and building walls between her and the people she cares about. Arran is the first Adair who doesn’t treat her as if she’s fragile and demands a genuine friendship. Yet, the attraction sizzling between them is undeniable. So when she realizes she trusts him, Eredine surprises them both by offering Arran one night of no-strings passion.
Arran knows one night will inevitably lead to a desire for more and he’s willing to stay by Eredine’s side for as long as it takes to convince her there’s something real between them. However, just when Arran thinks they might build a future together, Eredine’s past returns to stalk her. And Arran won’t just have to battle her demons to keep them together. He’ll need to battle his own.

Suspense on both sides
Getting past their issues
This family tree!
This family tree is getting weirder and more complex the more you read on in this series, but the characters acknowledge this weirdness themselves and as a reader, they have endeared themselves to me. This fourth Scottish romantic suspense was a completely easy read to be immersed in.
Eredine is a character I’ve wanted to know more about, particularly her secrets and why she was the way she was. I got all the answers but it took a lot of the book for this story arc to play out; it was avid reading. Aaran showed himself to be a worthy friend and maybe more.
I enjoyed reading Aaran’s connections and conversations with his brothers so much. Brodan and Aaran are a puzzle still to be solved and Lachlan and Aaran getting drunk, confessing issues and confidences was such a buzz when you’re a fan of this family. Most of the characters from the previous books featured but were in the background.
The suspense in this one was two-fold but both issues wrapped up with ease. I liked that the suspense wasn’t over extended.
Overall, a good addition to this series and I await the final brother Brodan.
Thank you to the author for the early review copy.
