Goodreads: Return to Haven Point, where New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne proves there’s no sweeter place to fall in love
Protecting the streets of Haven Point isn’t just a job for police officer Wyn Bailey, it’s a family tradition. But lately she’s found herself wanting more, especially from her boss—and overprotective brother’s best friend—sexy chief of police, Cade Emmett. The only problem is getting Cade to view her as more than just a little sister.
Cade’s hands-off approach with Wyn isn’t from lack of attraction. But his complicated past has forced him to conceal his desire. When Wyn is harmed in the line of duty, Cade realizes the depth of his feelings, but can he let his guard down long enough to embrace the love he secretly craves?
Ope’s Opinion: This is the fourth in the Haven Point series, but you could read this one alone. Characters from previous books are visited, but you don’t need to know them to enjoy this book.
Riverbend Road is enjoyably predictable. There are a few new things revealed along the way, but you know how it will end. It was a sweet read.
The slow build of Wyn and Cade’s relationship made the book a delight to read. I liked that they were friends for a long time and didn’t act on their feelings until they were older. I also liked that the physical part of their relationship was not the focal point.
I really enjoy her books. I liked this one and my review will be up in July.
