Any book that even mentions a Maddox brother has my immediate attention. Darby is a strong heroine determined to take care of herself and the baby growing in her belly. Trex was in love with Darby before he even met her....the "love at first sight" trope at work. He is sweet and romantic, but not entirely truthful about his job. Overall this story is sweet and romantic, but there's a lot going on outside of Darby and Trex's romance, some very much over the top. I hope the next book(s) in the series will explain more. While Darby and Trex get their HEA, I was left with more questions than answers.
