Rating: ★★★★1/2

CIA operative John Bishop arrives in Bliss under the guise of professor, Henry Flanders to take a respite from the bloodshed of his life. He only wanted a few days off and was utterly unprepared for Nell Finn. Now, he’s falling deeper when he knows he’ll have to leave her behind soon.

Nell Finn fights for what’s right no matter the cost. She’s always been focused then Henry sauntered into her life and now she can’t concentrate on anything else but him. She knows he’ll leave, she knows what he’s offering isn’t forever but she falls in love anyway.

I loved LOVED L O V E D Henry and Nell’s story. I’d always thought these two were absolutely cute and in love. I adore Nell’s spirit and Henry’s devotion. Seeing how they started and fell in love was an absolute joy.

Nell is the kind of woman who inspires you to be better. I loved her so much and she’s probably one of my favourite Lexi Blake characters. I adore the way she stands up for what she believes is right and I’ve never related more to any character than I did to hers. I think she perfectly balanced out Henry’s grump.

I totally believe Henry’s CIA badass alpha self was whipped for Nell the first time he saw her and Lexi gave us exactly THAT. I love this fool so much and I can’t believe he made it that long without her.

I didn’t know I needed this story but once I started I could not stop and Henry and Nell became an essential part of me. I was giddy and excited all through this story and just it was all I dreamt it to be.

Logan and Seth are next and I’m more excited for their story than life itself.

4.5 Stars!

Go back in time to Bliss’s first happily ever after…

CIA operative John Bishop arrived in Bliss, Colorado, seeking a respite from the high-stakes game of blood and lies that sent him to the worst corners of the world. A week playing the role of vacationing professor Henry Flanders would recharge his batteries, especially if he found a gorgeous woman to occupy his time.

Nell Finn has spent her life focused on helping others, but when she meets the tall and mysterious Henry Flanders, she can’t stop imagining what he might do for her. When Nell and her mother are threatened, Henry comes to her, offering his protection and comfort.

But as the threats escalate out of control, Henry discovers that the beautiful and innocent Nell is much more than a plaything. Can he save the woman he loves without exposing the secrets that would drive her away?
