What would you do if you got a call informing you that the family as you knew it, was a lie.

Dan Brock, retired SEAL turned mechanic in small town Cedar, Colorado, gets a call that changes his life. Dealing with the family he never knew about, Dan takes his frustrations out on the man, that because of his good looks, Dan refuses to have anything to do with.

Dallas Bainbridge’s primary job is flying Dan’s former CO from place to place. Getting a request to fly Dan to his father’s funeral, Dallas tries to keep to himself, not knowing why Dan doesn’t like him. Can the two men get past their differences, or will a simple misunderstanding keep them apart?

I love stories with hidden family histories, and characters struggling to find out where they came from. Misunderstandings fits that line perfectly. Dan Brock is a retired SEAL who’s now working as a mechanic in a small town. He enjoys the small town life until his quiet life is suddenly interrupted by the news about his father’s death. Except Dan had no idea his dad was still alive…

So he decides to go to the funeral and meet a family he never knew existed. Pilot to fly him to the funeral is none other than Dallas Bainbridge. There’s certainly a lot of unwarranted tension going on between Dan and Dallas, tension that’s about to get explode the more time they have to spend together.

Dan’s new family isn’t too pleased with his sudden arrival, especially not when Dan’s dad left him in charge of his sibling’s trusts, as the will says. Even though one of his new relatives plots against them, and tension runs high between Dan and Dallas, Dan must come to terms with who he truly is, in light of his new family and responsibilities.

I liked the tension between Dan and Dallas. My pet peeve here would be that their names are VERY similar. Sometimes I read past it and thought it said Dan when it said Dallas, and the other way around. But apart from that, I had no trouble with this book. The story line was great, intriguing even, and the characters were fun to read about. The relationship between Dan and Dallas started out on the wrong side, and I liked how they tried to work through their differences. The writing was good as well.
