|A very exciting book from start to finish Briar is a woman with skills that most men would love to have. She also is missing out on what she feels are the feminine part and especially if she ever wants to be a mother. Matt who also is part of a security detail loves that she is badass and she is who she is. Things change though when she finds out that she is pregnant and not knowing how to deal with emotions she has never felt before. She has never been around other women who have had children, so she acts as she always does and that is going on a mission because that is what calms her. That does not calm her husband and leads for disagreements and loud discussions. When she ends up in the hospital and the possibility of maybe losing her child, she sees that there is hope for here of becoming a mother. I found this to be a really good book.
