Well, what a nice and cute surprise! I’m always in for cowboy romance, but this one took the cake, I dare say!
Abby Harper has learned that people leave you when you most need them the hard way. Left alone to raise her little brothers on her own, she tries to juggle her work, studies, and family – with sort of disastrous results to her personal psyche. However, when Brice, the middle child, steals cattle from Clayton East’s family ranch, things turn out shockingly for the better. Clayton decides to make Brice work his debt off, instead of punishing him via law, and he takes the whole Harper family under his wing. With things escalating romantically between Abby and Clay, it’s only natural that danger will come their way – and threaten the new bonds the Harper children are finally starting to form.
I loved this story. It was sweet and adorable, and yet really hot. The tension was visible between the two leads – so much so that even Abby’s brothers caught on to it – but the pace let the the relationship form naturally, and I appreciated that. Not to mention, the action started to pick up at one point when it seemed too calm, and then we were in for the suspense ride of our lives!
I really hope I can read more of this series – if the rest of the cowboys are anything like Clayton, it’s gonna be a true treat!
