Eight years is a long time gone…

After graduation, artist Anabelle Copenhaver returns home to find that the only family member she has left is missing in action.

With her brother gone, his infuriatingly handsome best friend, Wesley, is now responsible for her family’s estate. Anabelle doesn’t need a babysitter, especially not her childhood crush—the first guy she ever loved.

Former marine Wesley Cole lives by his word. He promised to protect Anabelle and that’s exactly what he intends to do. His biggest challenge will be to keep his hands off the blue-eyed beauty who has a way of setting his soul on fire.

Anabelle is resourceful and determined to bring her brother home, but how can she when Wesley blocks every turn, messing with her plans and her heart?

I can always depend on Diana A. Hicks to give me a great Cole Brothers story. A beautiful artist and musician returns home to discover her estranged brother is in the jungles of Venezuela. With the help of the only man she has ever loved, they plan to rescue the only family she has from an extremely dangerous situation.

Anabelle hoped to see her brother Charlie after eight years when she returned to her home in Atlanta, but he’s not there. Wesley is there instead. The man she has had a crush on since she was a child and the only man capable of saving her brother and his best friend from himself.  But are her hopes too high?  Could it be that Charlie still hates her for what she did to her parents?

Wesley needs to tell Anabelle the truth about what he did. Would she forgive him for doing something so selfish? She was his North Star during the worst part of his mission.  She was his only hope for sanity after leaving her brother in Venezuela. He knows he shouldn’t take her there to find Charlie, but how can he say no to the woman he loves?

Anabelle and Wesley’s story is complicated and full of twists and turns. Their love and heartbreak for Charlie is so genuine and understandable and the way they come together to find him is wonderful to watch.

This is a fast-paced adventure into the jungles of Venezuela, drug cartels, and human trafficking. But most of all this is a love story between two lost souls who find hope and comfort in each other’s arms. Recommend highly!

Thank you to Ms. Hicks for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
