Short and sweet. Rachel is still healing from events in book 1 which was a few years ago. Nice surprise for her in her personal life. Then, she had a horrible one in her professional one, which she dealt with poise and bravery. Ethan I felt was too overprotective. I was surprised that didn't ramp up in the aftermath of the work event. If he got worse, I probably would have thrown the book across the room. (Thankfully, since this was novella length, that probably kept him from going off the deep end).
