Despite his wealth, Alex Thompson has been living in fear since his wife died in childbirth. A frivolous wrongful death lawsuit, harassing phone calls, and anonymous threats drive him and his five-year-old twins away from their home in Houston and into the crosshairs of a sniper.
Molly McDill is a struggling single mom who lives next door to Alex and his twins. When she helps them adjust to their new life in the country, she exposes herself and her son to the same threat that followed Alex.
An attempt on his life throws their lives into chaos, inviting more threats, public scrutiny, and Molly’s ex-husband back into her life. The tension tests the attraction they feel toward each other as they struggle to keep life normal for their kids.
Alex still doesn’t know who wants him dead but suspects his former in-laws. As the threats become a visceral danger, Alex and Molly race to uncover the secret that died with his wife before it costs them everything.
I’m always a little weary when a man writes romance but the cover sold me on the book. Letting Go was a good read, he did the romance well and it was suspenseful. The characters were likeable and I had to know what happened next and that kept me flipping the pages. I enjoy dual point of view if done right and the author nailed it.
It does have profanity and sexual content although not a lot but I thought I should mention that. It was a good read and I’m looking forward to more from this author.
I received a copy for my honest review, no other compensation was received.
