the last ten years, I’ve been living a lie in witness protection. But
the drug cartel that put me there isn’t a threat anymore, so I can have
my life back. I should be thrilled, right?
The last thing I want to do is go back home and show everyone how far I’ve fallen. I’m not the high-powered lawyer they all expect me to be. I’m just a guy who slings drinks and scowls at the world.
But then I hear about Max, my ex’s ten-year-old son. My ten-year-old son.
I have to go back now. Figure out how to be a dad. Face the love of my life. Make things right with Sadie and earn her trust. Will she have me—or is it too late to reinvent myself as the man she once loved?

What I thought about 10 Signs You Need To Grovel
I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one!
I'm really loving this series about brothers trying to reclaim their
lives after a long time in witness protection. They lost so much and the
HEA's are just that much more satisfying because of it.
10 Signs You Need to Grovel is Desmond's book. He's the very grumpy brother from the first book and his hurts are front and center. When he finds out he has a son he didn't know about because of witness protection, everyone knows it's not going to be an easy ride.
I loved Des's attitude toward these revelations and his slow return to the living. His family is there to support him all the way. There's lots of emotion here, and there's a scene early on between Des and his mother that had me leaking all over the place.
All is not easy-peasy for him, though. His former girlfriend and now mother of his child is justifiably hesitant with introducing her son to his father, and she's protecting her own heart as well. But what complicates things is that Sadie has built a life for herself that is at risk the closer she gets to Desmond. While I wasn't a fan of some of the things that are fibbed about here, I got it.
What I really like about this series is that it is written entirely in the male point of view. It's Desmond's journey back and I love that about this series. It's emotional, often sweet and heart-warming and even angry. Although I expected a little more anger from Des, I did like that it didn't take him long to figure out what was really important. It's an absolutely wonderful HEA.
I'm just loving this series. It's been some time since I've actually stalked an ARC on Netgalley, I just can't get enough of the Bower brothers. Really great romantic series so far.
