She's always been his safe place to land.

Jensen has shared a special bond with Tuck for as long as she can remember, their friendship a language that never needed words. But as life threw her one curveball after another, that secret language turned to stony silence.

He's always been her protector.

Tuck has looked out for Jensen since the day she was born. As his best friend's little sister, he's tried to keep her firmly in the friend category. But she's always been more.

All it takes is one moment of weakness to send Tuck's fiercely guarded walls crumbling to the ground. As a new fire burns between them, someone watches. Someone who doesn't like the new life Jensen's building for herself.

And they'll stop at nothing to keep her in the dark.

“A beautifully written romantic suspense that will leave you breathless and turning the pages to find out what happens next.

One of my favorite reads of 2019.”

— Kelly Elliot, New York Times bestselling author

I can’t recommend this series and author enough. Beautifully Broken Spirit is book 3 in the Sutter Lake series. It’s a standalone contemporary romance with a dash of suspense and every book has kept me hooked every single time.

In this one we have Jensen and Tuck’s story, a best friend’s to lovers AND brother’s best friend trope. It was tortuous being around these two and they nearly had me pulling my hair out. They could easily play as the roles of a married couple, but it was tough for them to cross any lines in fear of ruining their relationship.

As far as the characters goes in this series, I didn’t quite connect with these two like I did the others. Tuck and Jensen were both amazing, don’t get me wrong, but there was something that kept me from loving them.

The suspense in this series always keeps me going, I can’t get enough of it! And I loved seeing how great their friendship was.

Love this series so much and can’t wait for more!
