Title:   Jonah

Author: Brenda Rothert

Series: Chicago Blaze #7

4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

Jonah unexpectedly lost his wife three years ago. He knows that he will never find love like that again. When his police officer brother asks him to pretend to be in a relationship with Reyna to catch a child trafficker he reluctantly agrees. What he doesn’t expect is to actually fall for her. 

I am so glad Jonah found love again. The sudden death of his wife Lily in the previous book, Victor, was heartbreaking for everyone. I liked Jonah in previous books but I really grew to love him with this book.  Reyna was a kickass heroine who is determined to save as many children as she can. I loved her dedication to her job and her determination to help. She was just a great heroine, who had some childhood traumas that shaped her life. 

Jonah and Reyna start off very hostile to each other but that changes quickly. Their fake relationship quickly becomes real. I love a good fake relationship romance and this one really was top notch, especially considering the heavy and emotional reasoning for the relationship. 

Overall, this was another amazing book for the Chicago Blaze series. This series is the perfect blend of emotional heartbreak and romance. I can’t get enough of it! I am now eagerly waiting for the next book!
