Jackie Ashenden is one of my favorite authors. I was thrilled to get an ARC of this book.
Sullivan "Van" Tate is one of three orphaned boys adopted by an oil tycoon. While he was raised among the New York City elite, he prefers being a Navy SEAL. When their father dies, Van is the one that must give up his career to protect the family empire and the one woman that is forbidden to him.
Chloe Tate just wants the ranch that she loves. Throughout the years, she has learned to live with her father's broken promises to bring hr to New York. When danger threatens Chloe, the one that is protesting her is the man she desires.
This is one of those books that once you start it, you dig so deep into it and don't want to stop reading. I loved the characters and the story line. Jackie Ashenden did not disappoint with this opening to her new series!
That said, there is one point that I had to ignore throughout the book. Van was adopted by Noah Tate. Chloe was his biological daughter. The author should have made the three boys Noah's foster sons. Or googled "Can adopted siblings marry."
I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.
