Synopsis

Last man standing. That’s the way it feels when Will Stevens looks at the happiness and fulfillment his siblings have found. Will isn’t necessarily looking for “happily ever after” but...what if? The one thing that helps him get through the loneliness of bachelorhood is his job. As a paramedic with Rivers Edge Health Center, Will is dedicated to saving lives. But one person has the potential to jeopardize everything he has worked for: his boss.

Carmen Brady is a woman working in a man’s world. Determined to be taken as a serious professional, Carmen is hard and ruthless on the job; not interested in being anyone’s friend. There’s no room for personal relationships in the workplace, and Carmen is unwavering in her pursuit to run a tight ship in the Emergency Department at Rivers Edge Health Center. Yet, as much as she tries, Carmen can’t seem to stop thinking about one man she can’t have: her employee.

What happens when the line between work and personal is crossed? Can Will and Carmen keep the two worlds separated? Everything comes down to a single choice: love or career?

    perfect ending

    I was excited and reluctant to read this book by Lacey Black, it’s the final book in the series and Wills story. Personally I wanted wills more than anyone’s. It felt like saying goodbye to friends and it was sad but brilliant. Lacey did a great job of giving us a conclusion (although a few open ended bits in the final epilogue). This book contained drama, and love and that even in bad situations love is stronger. Sad to leave these guys but definitely the perfect ending

    5 Stars! A perfect ending to an amazing series!

    Lacey Black is a favorite author of mine, and her amazing Rivers Edge series is what I think of when I think of small town romances. This series, these characters, their love stories very quickly became the benchmark that I hold all other small town romances to. I was so torn reading this book between devouring it like I wanted to and forcing myself to slow down so it wouldn't end. "From his tall, lean body to his golden hair, this man oozes sex in the most powerful way." Will Stevens, the smack-in-the middle-of-five-children son in the Stevens clan, is a paramedic and often the more level-headed one amongst his siblings. Calm, cool and collected, he's quietly handsome with his wire-rimmed glasses, and he's loyal, dependable and loving. But underneath, and behind closed doors, Will is, well, more. "Like a storm cloud on the horizon, you never know what kind of damage she brings with her and will leave in her wake." Carmen Brady, aka Cruella, is Will's boss at the hospital. Known for her cold, uber-professional and demanding demeanor, she is not there to make friends, she's there to do her job and do it well. She knows what her employees say about her behind her back, but she doesn't care. She's got a job to do. Secretly, though, her heart races and her insides quiver at the mere thought of her employee, Will Stevens. But that is all she can have - her private thoughts - because there is no way this single mom will ever jeopardize her job and go there with one of her employees. "Oh hell, I want Will underneath me!" Forced to work together within the close confines of an ambulance one day, the sexual tension coursing between them is so thick, it can be cut it with a knife. They studiously ignore it and go about their shift. A second shift together does nothing to quell the simmering sexual attraction buzzing between them. A favor turns into an invitation to come in for dinner. They barely make it inside the door before Carmen is slammed up against it, and she readily, happily and knowingly gives in to Will. "I'm drawn to you in a way I've never experienced before in my life. ... Are you willing to risk it all to explore whatever it is that I know we both feel?" That's the million dollar question that Will poses to Carmen. She says yes, and so begins their very hush-hush, secret relationship. He begins spending a lot of time with Carmen and her son, Zach, all of them growing closer. Will and Carmen just fit together so well, and he brought out her softer side. Carmen's son drinks up the friendship and attention that Will gives him, too. Everything is perfect, well except for that pesky little "no fraternization" clause... "He is my one true love...This is it. He's the one." Lacey Black has done a beautiful job capping off a much beloved series. Fans have been waiting patiently for Will's story since we met him in Trust Me, and he did not disappoint. Lacey has become the epitome of a small town romance superstar for me. Her writing is fantastic, and she just totally nails that small town, everybody knows everybody's business feel. The incredibly talented Ms. Black effortlessly weaves her stories full of characters so real and endearing and love stories that leave you smiling and swooning; one cannot help but get lost in this town, in these characters, in their happily ever afters. She's a no-fail, never-disappoints, no question auto buy author for me. Well done on this amazing finale, Lacey! I can't wait for what you'll give us next!

    Final instalment of the Rivers Edge series

    I’ve been a huge fan of Lacey’s since I first read Trust Me over a year ago. I have read, and re-read the Rivers Edge series a few times. I almost feel like an adopted extension of the Stevens family. This ending of the series is bittersweet. On one side, I don’t want to lose my adopted family. On the other, I wanted Will’s HEA. Oh Will. Shy Will. Hot in a Clark Kent kind of way with his glasses and quiet disposition, Will. You most certainly did not disappoint. To sum it up, Will’s got a new boss. A bitch of a boss, but a hot boss nonetheless. He’s attracted to her, and she is to him. But there’s certainly more beyond that crusty exterior with Carmen. Nothing could top the anticipation of Will’s story, not since that first scene in the pumpkin patch with Avery and Bean. The fact that Will kept the secret of Avery and Maddox’s relationship and still managed to advise his sister it was all going to blow up, made him that much more intriguing. The anticipation grew further which each appearance in the subsequent books, and especially with the release of Promise Me, where we found out that there was some past relationship with Holly. What I didn’t expect was ‘Take charge’ Will, and I loved it! I think I may need to get a new bumper sticker that says “I’d bend to Will’s will” Bravo Lacey! As sad as I am to see the end of the Stevens family (or is it?), I am looking forward to your new projects and to further witness you grow as a writer and superb storyteller. That epilogue. Sigh. I take that back. Those epilogues. Kleenex had a spike in their facial tissue sales on October 15th.
