Zeke shows a sullen Chad how to use a saw and praises the lad for doing a fine job making Chad feel good as he is used to his father telling him he is clumsy. That night, Natalie's other child four year old Rosie cuts a deal with Zeke that allows Rosie and Natalie to help Chad pay off his debts. Over the next few days, Zeke falls in love with Natalie and her two children, but know he must go slow as the mom and the son have major relationship problems that become compounded when Natalie will face murder charges.

BRIGHT EYES is an engaging relational romantic suspense that readers will enjoy because of the intriguing interactions between the cast and the strong attraction between the two lead protagonists. Though Chad overcomes his anger too easily and Robert is too self-indulged, fans will appreciate this fine contemporary even if the lead couple needs to stop chasing fast mice in her bedroom.
