blurb from Elisabeth Barrett's website
As the sizzling Star Harbor series concludes, the fourth sexy Grayson brother, a dedicated DEA agent, shows a high-society beauty the true meaning of love.
Cameron Stahl has everything, so why does she feel like her life is incomplete? A beautiful Boston socialite and a successful entrepreneur, she’s just opened her second boutique in Star Harbor and business is booming. But one searing look from Val Grayson sends fire through her body and shows her exactly what’s missing from her life: a real man who doesn’t play games and who makes her feel like the most desired woman on earth.
DEA agent Val Grayson has always looked after his brothers. Now it’s his turn to find love—though Cam is the last sort of woman he ever dreamed he’d fall for. When courageous Cam realizes she has the insider connections to help Val take down a major drug player within Boston’s political elite, he can’t stop her from putting herself in danger. But as the drug bust of his career looms, all Val cares about is saving the woman he loves before it’s too late.

This is the 4th and the last book in the Star Harbor series. I have loved this series and the Grayson brothers as well as the women they eventually would get together with. Each one was a mystery solved only when we read their individual books. For me Val was the most mysterious. He's the most quiet one the 4 brothers. Known not to really talk a lot. That all changes when he and Cameron finally get together. They are both attracted instantly intensely at the first touch. It's really kind of explosive. Val has doubts about whether he can fit into her high society world but the attraction he feels cuts through that and he goes for it anyway. The relationship burns hot but not without several issues that come up that have to be worked through. When Cameron finds out about the big case Val is working on involving drugs and possible connections to a Senator and his son that she knows well, she volunteers to help out against his wishes. Her night of spying goes well she thinks but later has huge consequences when she's found out and some things are not as they seem. Val races to save her. While i liked all the brothers there is something about Val that stands out a little more. He's a mature, capable man who puts everyone ahead of himself. In this book he finally takes something for himself that makes him happy. He's got that gruff alpha male thing going on but has a big soft spot just for Cameron and she's has a matching one for him.  The series that has involved a shipwreck and some keys as a continuing part of the 4 book series also comes to a conclusion as well. The perfect way to wrap everything up. I'm sorry to say I'll miss the Grayson brothers and Star Harbor. 5 out of 5 for Slow Summer Burn by Elisabeth Barrett.
