The last Bennett book about Jake, the sensei master who runs a dojo and raised his siblings after his mother died and father kind of checked out. Jake's life is simple, he has his work and now a boy Po who he is helping and then the heroine comes back into his life. They both share a complicated relationship and have been estranged for twelve years. They were young when they got married and both made mistakes, the heroine was young and unsure in a new place and had to deal with his siblings and his attention being divided with his karate, which she didn't understand. Then Jake found out she was wealthy and when she wanted to help with money he didn't let her and she felt more of a failure, so she left because he had enough burdens in his life to let him fulfil his dreams of winning titles and before they loved turned to hate and Jake could never forgive that and him failing her and putting her last always.
Now, she is back because a man won't take no for an answer and now they are older and wiser. They still have chemistry and hidden in the corners love but they have to figure out being with each other and accepting each others differences. The charade of a reconciliation soon becomes true but before they can make plans, the threat hanging over them has to go away. I loved the epilogue and seeing them in a happier place. A good end to a wonderful series.
