My job had a very specific goal: I found people who didn’t want to be found and delivered them to whoever employed me. After that, well, I tried not to think about what happened while I spent my money on things that made me happy. Resorts, men…I lived life by the seat of my pants because I never knew where I’d be the next week, or who I’d be looking for.
When the head of a lesser-known criminal family hired me to find her son, I wasn’t sure what I was walking into. I had his photo, so I knew the man was hot with a capital H. But I expected the usual agitated scumbag I normally went after. Not some guy running a fishing charter and looking like he didn’t have a care in the world.
I might have been curious.
I might have gotten a little too close.
I might have done a lot of things I shouldn’t have.
Things that could get me killed this time.
But hey, life wasn’t always about making the right choices. It was about making good ones.
And Toby Cartwright was a great choice.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
A great finale to the Cartwright Brothers series! I kind of developed a soft spot for Toby from the start, and was curious what kind of woman would capture the heart of the sensitive soul who didn’t really want his place in the crime family.
I really liked Blair. She was just as broken as Toby was, and I thought she complemented him very well. She was ballsy and sassy, but trying to numb emotional pain and keep the nightmares at bay. Toby took off after the disastrous event in Book #4 and has been hiding from his family ever since. When PI Blair (aka Black Widow) is hired to track him down and bring him home, both of their lives are changed forever when they are forced to go on the run in order to confront Grey, the smuggler who has made both of their lives miserable in two very different ways.
As Blair and Toby embark on a cross-country road trip, which is most likely their death march, they force themselves to take time to smell the roses along the way. And they discover that they have more in common than they thought, and it’s not just the intense physical connection. I love how hardened, jaded Toby softens as a result of the “sunshine” that Blair brings to his life. And when things really go off the rails for Toby, Blair and the Cartwrights, Toby comes through with his promise to protect Blair no matter what.
Fool’s Paradise was a great ending to this series. Because Toby is isolated from his family, the bulk of the story was the reader getting to know him and Blair as they got to know each other. But by the end, we get to catch up with the rest of the crazy clan — and get an awesome epilogue wrapping it all up with a pretty bow!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
