Jeanette has been crushing over her best friend since they were teenagers. She has never been able to make him look at her in any way other than friend. However, when Jeanette is mugged and roughed up, her friend and crush becomes her bodyguard but will she be able to guard her heart from him?
River had a rough childhood before his adoptive family found him. He’s still haunted by secrets from his past. He tries to keep them bottled inside so they don’t harm those he loves. When his best friend is hurt he discovers deeper feelings for her but he refuses to let her in out of fear that his past will harm her. However, time in close quarters get steamy between these besties. Will they be able to keep their hands to themselves?
Anne Rainey’s River’s Redemption is another great addition to the Blackwater series. I am glad these two finally got the chance to find love in their own book. Jeanette and River sizzle. Jeanette may have physical wounds but River has some deep scars that need healing. A bit of patience and a whole lot of love make for a good romance! River’s Redemption is a sweet read.
