ENDEARED is the fifth and final book in THE ACCIDENTAL BILLIONAIRES series. I love how this series connects with others the author has written and hope we meet up with the Sinclair family again and again. I somehow missed the previous book, ENCHANTED, and do plan to rectify that.
The book begins with the prologue, set over ten years ago, and really sets the stage of what is to come. It was great to be back in Citrus Beach, California and meeting up with the various characters we’ve met before. I was drawn in from the first page to the last and got up to speed quickly.
This is Owen and Layla’s story, and it didn’t disappoint. The story is told in alternating chapters by Owen or Layla, and their voices really shine through. There are a few different storylines all leading to Owen and Layla finally becoming a couple.
ENDEARING is filled with heartwarming moments, angst, love, and family. The brothers are always there for each other and their wives and girlfriends. The addition of the English bulldog that Layla falls in love with when volunteering at the animal shelter is a great touch of warmth as well. The story flows well, and the epilogue wraps up everything. It takes place eight months after the story ends. A wonderful read that stays with you long after it’s over.
