When the woman you’re falling for is concealing her true identity, how do you handle it? That’s the premise behind this intriguing and mysterious book. The story follows Willow, a woman on the run, and Jaxson, a wealthy playboy whose life is changed by a chance meeting with this captivating woman. They don’t know much about each other, but they do know that there’s a connection there, and for the first time in Jaxson’s life, he wants to dig deeper with a woman. What follows is Willow and Jaxson’s slow progression from strangers to friends to lovers.
This book followed an interesting progression for me. It drew me in from the start with the solid writing and suspenseful feel. The reader doesn’t know exactly what’s going on in Willow’s life, but we do know that she’s found herself in trouble. I love a slow burn, but something about the extended period of mystery and friendship between Willow and Jaxson had me disconnecting from the story for a while. Ultimately, this is sort of the calm before the storm, but I will say that it dragged a bit in the middle. That being said, I loved the relationship and how well these two get to know each other. It’s a unique and interesting story that showcases Willow’s strength and Jaxson’s gentleness, which was really refreshing to read. Had the middle been a little stronger, this would’ve been an easy 5-star read, but it’s certainly a strong 4 stars. I received an ARC of this slow burn romance and am voluntarily leaving a review.
