Highly recommended!
I enjoyed the entire Woods family series by Mandy Harbin. It was amazing to read through the entire series in sequence but, each story can be read as a standalone. During each of the previous stories Jack’s character grew darker until I feared he would never survive to achieve his HEA. The world the author built for her characters is supported by vivid descriptions, realistic dialog, and of course sexy alpha men.
