read this book without the background knowledge of the first two, however it was still easy to follow I do recommend reading the first two before this one so you get the whole picture This book had a good story line until the end and it could have gone without all the detailed sex scenes The end is just a cliffhanger that confused me I know that s what it is supposed to do , but I personally do not like books that require reading a whole series for it to make sense I would recommend this book to anyone who likes the romantic, mushy, lovey dovey stuff That was the majority of this book Younger girls should not read this book because of all the sex scenes and the details that came with it 3.5 StarsCongressman Xander Langston was high school sweethearts with Rose Pierce but they went

exactly how I would have like to seen this play out When a woman does not tell the father to be that he is about to become a daddy I think that is just plain wrong on so many levels Didn t he deserve the chance to make that choice for himself The Congressman has come home to help with the fallout from the body that was discovered on their property Now that he knows he still has strong feelings for Rose and his newfound son he is afraid the problems arising from the dead body may send her and his son running far away from him.Xander s reaction to all of this is not what I expected I needed a littlefrom him I wanted to see him mad as hades that he had missed all those years with his son Yet one of his first thoughts when he realized Rose s son was his, as well, was what would happen with

I must say they have come a long way since the old days, even the covers are slightly improved.Yes there was still the physical chemistry and steamy scenes that one expects The difference is that it seems the characters now havedepth than the past and that was evident in this story Both Xander and Rose were strong people with strong personalities which added to the enjoyment of the story The story of reignited love was a pleasure to read As a hopeless romantic it was nice to see high school sweethearts that still carried a torch for each other.While the formula for the story does not stray from what you would expect it was the characters that made this one such a pleasure to read I am tempted to check out the rest of the series Good reunion story and installment in the series mystery of the body found on the family property In the first book, it was all about trying to figure out which piece of land the body was buried on and preventing its discovery In the second book the

interrupted by an emergency call from her brother, letting her know that her son has broken his arm Being the nice guy that he is, Xander drives her to the hospital where he gets the shock of his life her ten year old son looks just like him Xander s an honorable man and he makes it clear that he isn t going to walk away, now that he knows the truth Once he s over the shock, he s actually pretty happy about the whole thing He s concerned about what will happen when the truth is made public, knowing what the media can be like He and Rose decide to keep things secret for a little longer, just to be safe I loved seeing Xander accepting his growing feelings for Rose, and looking for ways to keep her in his life It was great to see him take her to DC for one of his events and do everything he could to make her feel comfortable The biggest thing he worries about is what will happen when she finds out the truth about the body.Rose is surprised to see Xander, andso to discover that her feelings for him had never gone away He had wanted her to go with him when he left for college all those years ago, but her mother was sick and she needed to stay She decided not to tell him she was pregnant because she always knew that he was meant to do great things and she didn t want to hold him back She s always felt a bit guilty about it, but has done her best to give Joey the best life she can She nervous but also relieved when the truth finally comes out Spendingtime with Xander has her love for him growing stronger, but she worries about fitting in his world She also has the problem of her father being in prison for being an accessory in an armed bank robbery She s adamant about keeping him away from herself and her son, wanting nothing to do with a criminal As expected, this does cause problems when she discovers Xander s problem She has to decide what isimportant to her.One of the things I loved best about Xander was his devotion to his family Like his brothers, he will do anything he has to in order to protect them That same protectiveness extends to Rose and Joey, and I loved seeing him get so into being a dad Joey was a great kid and it was fun to see the similarities he had with Xander It turns out, he s a lot smarter than either of his parents suspected I loved the present he gave Xander before he went back to Washington Xander s return to Cornwall and his big moment with Rose and then Joey were sweet and romantic There was a nice bit of humor as Xander had to face his mom and confess.The tension of waiting for the body to be identified was present throughout the book There s a littleinformation about what happened revealed, but obviously not everything The cliffhanger in this one was just terrible
