Jennifer Gracen concludes her sizzling Harrisons series with a bombshell of a surprise—a secret Harrison! Miami cop Nick Martell thought it was sheer chance when he matched as a bone marrow donor for Myles Harrison, the 12-year-old grandson of the fabulously wealthy Charles Harrison II. But when Nick tells his family, he learns the dark truth. Years ago, his mother was the Harrisons’ housekeeper. An affair with Charles led to pregnancy, but her fear of the harsh, controlling family patriarch made her run. She begs Nick to protect himself by avoiding the Long Island clan, but he can’t live with himself if he lets down a child in need.
As Myles’ private nurse, Amanda Kozlov is grateful to Nick, whose donation offers the child a chance of recovery, and the chemistry between them is immediate, electric and dangerous. Nick has an entire life back in Miami, and his connections in Long Island are strained as the family adjusts to his revelation. The smart choice for Amanda would be to keep her distance, but surely a steamy fling won’t be too much of a risk.
Nick is worlds away from the other Harrison men, having grown up with none of their wealth or privilege. But that doesn’t make him any less of a force to be reckoned with. Strong, capable and bulldog-determined, he refuses to back down or lose sight of his reason for entering the Harrisons’ lives. That inner steel is what makes down-to-earth, straight-talking Amanda such a perfect match for him. She’s there to support and encourage him when the cyclone of problems around him gets overwhelming, but she’ll also go toe-to-toe with him and force him to acknowledge when he crosses a line. When she deserves an apology, she demands one—and he gives it. They’re both too smart and too self-assured to treat each other as anything other than equals, in bed and out of it.
While the heat between the characters is enticing, It Might Be You’s emotional depth really captures the reader. Amanda and Nick feel so grounded and realistic that it’s impossible not to root for them to find a way to make things work. And the supporting cast of characters surrounding them is terrific, engaging and fun. Genuinely sweet relationships develop over the course of the story, with the connection between Myles and Nick being especially heartwarming. It Might Be You’s happy ending—for Amanda and Nick, and for the whole Harrison clan—is well earned and wonderfully satisfying.
