Just One Fling

3 Stars - The story that has a lot to unpack for a short romance. Secret children, fame, politics, and then there's the love story that started with an off page one night stand. Honestly, the Dare family tree branches are getting a bit out of control it seems. Maybe time to start an entirely new series. Some of the books in this series work well as standalones. You can put the crazy family dynamics in the back of your mind and focus on the couple front and center. Not so much in the first half of this one. It was hard to find details of what was really going on and not family history. Lots of telling not showing. I didn't know what size or breed the dog was until 50%. Fortunately, when you can pay attention to Harrison, he's an excellent trademark hero. He starts off the book as James Bond so there you go. Winter is a bit harder to like with her indecisive attitude and constant need to assert her independence. But she's sweet and has a lot to deal with so we can be sympathetic. Once the lengthy background is set and the stalker shows up, things move swiftly and it makes for an exciting second half.
