Book Synopsis:
Is Theo Colton the father of a baby dropped at his doorstep by a dying socialite? Even more shocked than the sexy bronc-riding champ is his beautiful cook, Ellie Parker.Just as she becomes the baby's nanny, she discovers a terrifying stalker has followed her to Dead River.

What's worse--as a mysterious virus quarantines the town, danger goes viral, too. But to Theo and Ellie, the biggest dangers are their sizzling attraction and profound new feelings. Can Ellie tame a cowboy who wants nothing more than a wild ride with women? Or must she deny her heart to save his life?

So what did I think? 4 stars

Like: The beginning.
Dislike: The stalkers identity reveal. Too many loose ends.

Would I recommend it?

Yes, I would recommend this book. Is it a must read? No, but it's entertaining and I enjoyed it, I might even read more of the books in this series!

I really like how this book started, most books take the first few chapters to give a backstory and prepare the reader for upcoming events, but this book really just jumped right in with the action.

Honestly I was disappointed in who Ellie's stalker turned out to be, I had a few theories and I wish it would have been one of those instead. I also wish the scene where she discovers who her stalker is would have been longer, I would have liked to have seen him explain a bit more.

I also would have liked to have seen a few of the loose ends tied up, I know this is supposed to be a part of a series, but I would have at least liked an update on Theo's grandma. It's like she was a big part of the first half of the book and then for the last part she wasn't even mentioned.

Overall, I really liked the book, and if you like drama, action, romance, and suspense then this is the book for you! There are a few love scenes, but nothing too graphic, and they don't take up a huge part of the book.

Thank you Harlequin via Netgalley for providing me with this book in exchange for an honest review!
