Rachael was now returning to find Beck because the son, Chaz, that Beck does not know about is very sick and needs Beck’s help. Beck is very angry because she took off without saying anything and kept his son from him. As he begins to raise his voice, Rachael and Chaz both have a reaction to his anger. She backs up and Chaz begins to cry. Beck’s family, who is in the same room, takes the baby and Beck and Rachael begin their one of many discussions about their past and what Chaz needs.
Rachael explains that she only came back to see if Beck or one of his siblings is a match for a bone marrow transplant that Chaz needs, or he would die. As they wait for the tests to come back, Rachael explains that her father use to hit her mom and her and that she swore that she would never live that way again, nor allow Chaz to live with a angry father. Beck’s family reinforces that Beck should think before he opens his mouth and work on himself and a possible relationship with Rachael and his son.
When the same attraction Beck and Rachael had before and never went away, they both decide to work on a relationship. Of course, there are challenges, and Beck’s reaction to some situation, causes the entire commitment to be challenged. Beck says he is sorry each time, but, so did Rachael’s father. However, what is not spoken is that Beck never hits anyone, unless it is during a MMA fight.
It turns out that Mason is the best match, so the procedure was completed and the entire Burton clan took turn staying with Chaz.
Can Beck and Rachael find a HEA? Does Baby Chaz get better? You must read to find out.
Issues: The one problem that I had with this book was that they were teaching Chaz to “hit” Beck if he got loud and angry. I don’t believe that teaching a child to hit to correct an adult or anyone would create a healthy environment. What would Chaz be like when he grew up and decided to hit everyone to correct them.
I will not go into a short synopsis of this book as other reviewers have done that job for me. However, this book is the 3rd book in The Burton Brothers series and unfortunately the most disappointing.
I loved the characters, Rachel and Beck and baby Chaz along with the rest of the crew (Mason, Avery, Dustin, Alice and Bryant). The disappointing part was that I felt the ending and some of the plot points were rushed and/or undeveloped. Rachel and Beck have some individual issues but the message of this book above all else is: Love can make all the difference in the world and can conquer all. And family is great thing to have because they make everything easier (at least the Burton Brothers do).
I have been a devoted reader of Leslie's for a long while and I have always enjoyed her books and I think this is the first one that I have been disenchanted in.
I loved the first two books in this series and I look forward to Leslie writing any others (perhaps Dustin's story next?).
If you want a quick read and want to see how all three brothers end up then this is worth the time and money to read...you do read the ending of Avery and Mason's story and Bryant and Alice's story...don't you love a happy ending.
