Cooper Mckinnon, a Texas sheriff saves the life of a little boy, but it opens old wounds from the loss of his own baby son two years ago. Jessa Wills is Liam’s adoptive mother and Assistant District Attorney. She and Cooper are at odds since she has decided to open an unsolved murder involving his astranged mother. He and his brothers are also accused of tampering with evidence. However things quickly change with Jessa’s accident and the need for her son to have blood transfusion. His blood type is very rare. It seems that Cooper has the same blood type. When he sees Liam for the first time he feels sucker-punched because Liam looks just like his missing son. With someone trying to kill Jessa and kidnap Liam, Cooper and Jessa have no choice but to join forces and find out who is behind it.
In the beginning the book seemed to have great potential and then it waned. There was a mutual attraction between Cooper and Jessa, but nothing really happens until suddenly in the middle of the book they acted on their attraction during an attempted kidnapping of Liam. I felt it was out of place at this time in the book. I was somewhat disappointed in the storyline, but hope the next book will give it and the characters more depth. It did however have enough drama to keep me reading to the end.
