After a special ops mission gone terribly wrong, Max Sinclair is home and facing the possibility of losing the career he loves serving his country. When he meets his brother’s new stable manager he is drawn to her and feeling more alive. After a bad situation with her ex-boss, horse trainer Kelsey Malone accepted the job of running seaside stables in the Windswept Bay for Cam Sinclair. The moment she sees Max at Cam and Lana’s engagement party she's attracted to him. But her dad was career military and gave his life for his country-Kelsey’s vowed she’ll never go through that again and doesn’t date military men. But things get complicated when her ex-boss shows up and Max steps in to protect her. Can love heal these two wounded soul’s hearts? Welcome back to the beautiful sunset shores of Windswept Bay, where the romance continues for the Sinclair brothers.
I was so excited to finally get to read Max's story and I was not disappointed. At the end of the previous book, we read that Max had left for a special mission. Well, now he's back, but things are not the same. His siblings notice that he's extra quiet, but they don't understand why.
Also in the previous book we got to meet Kelsey Malone who was hired by Cam to run his riding stables. Kelsey has her own level of baggage, but when she meets Max, she recognizes a kindred spirit. There's a connection there of shared experiences. However, that shared experience is exactly why she can't let herself get involved. But, what about if the restrictions are no longer an issue? What then? And, when her past catches up with her, will Max be there to protect her?
I honestly enjoyed this story and devoured it in a day. I liked the respect shown for the military and their families, and the struggles they go through. I also liked how the romance developed. Kelsey is a strong woman, and she was firm with her values. Yet, Max is no pushover himself. He was open and honest with Kelsey and they each knew exactly where they stood with each other.
All in all, a great read.
