This is good by itself but a lot better if you have read the series in order. Which I did not do. But I am going to go buy the one book of the series that I have skipped reading somehow.
This has characters that have flaws and are working to be better. Lots of talk about prayer, forgiveness in a meaningful way. I really like the Wilder family and hope to see a lot more of them.
Boone Wilder is single. He is a bodyguard and a rancher. He is the oldest of his family. He is a very hard worker.
Kayla's father is running for office. He has hired Boone to protect her and keep her out of trouble. Supposed to be a easy job.
Kayla has been wild in the past because she was angry. She had no one to turn to. Now she is trying to get her life in order, Someone is trying to blackmail her. She has relatives in Martin's crossing.
This is charming, has plenty of drama, ranch life and keeps you entertained reading it. It is also a clean read.
I was given this ebook to read for free in exchange for a honest review from NetGalley and Harlequin.
I like a heroine who is a little more complex. A love a lady with a little sass. I felt that her character was well rounded.
Boone was a great combination of country boy and ex military man. I love how the author tied his service back into the story without overwhelming the current story. He and Kayla had witty and intelligent banter. I loved their relationship. Well done.
Content: clean, very mild violence, kissing
This book is part of a series, and the previous characters are involved in this story as well, also there are hints and mentions of the past events in the series. I believe reader could get much more out of the story if the previous books were read before this one.
The writing style is very light in this book, it nearly seems that the events are just 'let to happen' as they unfold, without plotting, or planning beforehand. I got this expression because of the rambling kind of progression of the tale.
Often in Love Inspired stories, the faith of the characters are at the center of the book, and a faith based message presented to the readers. In this story, it was assumed fact, nearly as an afterthought, and presumed from the actions of the characters, like going to the church on Sundays and blessing your food before eating, that many people do just as a habit.
Boone and Kayla have great energy between them. The banter is light and entertaining, and even though they have lived such opposite types of lives, they seem to understand each other, and enjoy each other's company.
The bodyguard business Boone is running with his friends seems unorganized, and I was surprised that a professional bodyguard would take his client to his parents' house to hide.
The big families on the both sides were entertaining. With so many references to them, and the past of the characters, I missed an organized, well thought out history of where Boone and Kayla were coming from. I hope this was more clear to the ones who have read the whole series so far.
Sweet and clean romance between the rich girl and her bodyguard, that takes time to develop, while on the run from her stalkers. Lots of family interference, cowboy references, and a dog that saves the day

This was a great addition to the Martin’s Crossing Series. I enjoyed returning to the familiar place and seeing, again, folks I’ve come to know. The Wilder family was fun and very protective of one another. Boone has known the Martin’s all his life and you see his interaction with Brody Martin, Kayla’s half brother. That was fun. Boone deals with guilt as well as a wound left behind from his Military service. I thought that was well done. Kayla also deals with hurt from the past that makes her bitter. It was interesting watching these two deal with each other. Boone’s mom is a sweet, wise woman and it was sweet to see how she handled and influenced both Boone and Kayla. There was a bit of a danger which I thought was a good addition to the story. The verse listed in the beginning fit very well. Romans 8:35 - Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? This could be read as a standalone and you wouldn’t feel lost but reading them in order gives great continuity to the series. I enjoyed my time in Martin’s Crossing and think you will too!

Some Favorite Quotes:
“You have a dog.” He laughed. “Yeah, I have a dog. And I have Daron McKay. Both of them shed, smell and leave messes.”
“She stepped into the circle of his embrace and he pulled her close. It was a brotherly, comforting hug, but it included his strength, his scent, his warmth. Before he let her go he kissed her near her temple. She drew in a breath at the gesture, so sweet. “You’re dangerous, Wilder.” “No, ma’am, I’m about as dangerous as a newborn puppy.” She laughed at that. “Yes, exactly. Everyone wants a puppy.”
