✪ Fool's Paradise (Cartwright Brothers #5) ✪ Lilliana Anderson ✪

My job had a very specific goal: I found people who didn’t want to be found and delivered them to whoever employed me. After that, well, I tried not to think about what happened while I spent my money on things that made me happy. Resorts, men…I lived life by the seat of my pants because I never knew where I’d be the next week, or who I’d be looking for.
When the head of a lesser-known criminal family hired me to find her son, I wasn’t sure what I was walking into. I had his photo, so I knew the man was hot with a capital H. But I expected the usual agitated scumbag I normally went after. Not some guy running a fishing charter and looking like he didn’t have a care in the world.
I might have been curious.
I might have gotten a little too close.
I might have done a lot of things I shouldn’t have.
Things that could get me killed this time.
But hey, life wasn’t always about making the right choices. It was about making good ones.
And Toby Cartwright was a great choice. 

ARC received from author for an honest review

This book.  This is the book I have been waiting for for the past year, ever since I read the first book in the Cartwright brother series.

And Ms Anderson has certainly not disappointed.

In fact, she has exceeded my expectations of what Toby Cartwright's story would be.

It has been a day since I finished reading it, and I am still thinking about it.

There is so much that has lead up to this final installment of the series, so I feel that you will need to have read all the previous books to get the full impact of this book.

Gah, it is so hard to write this and not give anything away.  I have waited so long for Toby to fall in love, and the woman he finds is perfect for im in every single way.  She is so not what I expected, yet so much better than Holland for him.

If you have read my reviews of the previous books, you should remember that from the second book, I was not a fan of Nate Cartwright, and I have to say, still not much of a fan.  He has redeemed himself just a tiny bit in this installment, but nope, still a d!ck!

I am now feeling very despondent that this series has come to it's conclusion.  Fool's Paradise is a beautiful, emotional story, that I need to go back and reread already.

I can't wait to see what Ms Anderson brings me next.
