Sloane Howell and Alex Wolf dig deep in the depths of family dynamics as they explore the Collins brothers’ unique relationship through the eyes of the baby of the family. The confident and cocky Donovan Collins carries himself with the typical sexy suit attitude of his brothers, but he hides a secret that rests uneasily in his inner core.
The smart and competitive Paisley Williams enters The Hunter Group and sets Donovan into a tailspin. His nemesis from law school, hired by his brothers, sets a new set of rules into play. A chess game that Donovan refuses to lose and Paisley appears to be one move ahead of him.
Howell and Wolf develop both Paisley and Donovan in a unique manner. The cat and dog disdain toward one another, coupled with one another’s inner insecurities, slowly burns within them both. The beautiful nature and care Howell and Wolf took to develop two confident successful lawyers on the outside and then exposing their innermost vulnerabilities were done with grace and a build-up which keep s the reader yearning for more. What matters most is they used the duo to show how not all successful people internally grapple with the same confidence they wear as armor in the outside. These vulnerabilities are real, raw, and rue deep within, eating away at each one in a paralyzing emotional disconnect from finding their own inner peace. Donovan and Paisley won over my heart, and Howell and Wolf should be commended on a read well done!
