Publisher Description

New York Times Bestselling Author Vivian Arend​ brings you the first STAND ALONE book in the bestselling SIX PACK RANCH series.


Sometimes love is right there for the taking.


Responsible oldest of six brothers, Blake Coleman knows his desire for the sweet girl-next-door is wrong. While Jaxi has grown into a western-hat-wearing blonde with slim legs that go on forever, the responsible thing to do is keep his hands off.


Jaxi has other plans for Blake's hands, and his heart. She's more than ready to convince him they’d be perfect together, but he can't seem to see past the big "don't touch" sign that's apparently hanging around her neck.


When Jaxi ends up living on the Six Pack ranch right under Blake's nose, the undeniable heat between them slides off simmer and up to barn-burning levels. When a couple of Blake’s younger brothers decide Jaxi's brand of trouble is worth getting tangled up with, Blake's going to have to let go the reins and fight for what he really wants—her heart, forever.


Warning: Unapologetically sexy, this book contains cowboys seducing and being seduced: in trucks, pool halls, and barns. Drool-worthy country charm, a little double-teaming, and a lot of secrets are revealed as the Coleman family saga begins. Saddle up and ride.

Sweet and sexy

The first book in the six pack ranch series. This is the story about oldest brother Blake and the woman who has always loved him. Jaxi is a fun, self aware woman who knows what or should I say who she wants and goes after it. Lots of heat and steam between Blake and Jaxi but under it a lot of heart. Really enjoyed this first foray into the Coleman family.


I could not put it down

I loved this book. It really hooked me and I was very excited to read the rest in the series.

Sexy cowboys, who can resist??

I loved being introduced to the 6 Coleman boys, each with their own personalities, but working together on the family ranch.

I loved Blake and Jaxi, he the responsible oldest son, and her the girl that has always been around. She has always had a thing for him, and he has always resisted his feeling for her. What happens can only be described as explosive! I could not put the book down.

Finally getting your man!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story line moved along, it acted on the sparks but also took the time to develop the relationship. Not quite sure what Matt's story is doing here, seemed a bit too much of a detour for set-up of later stories, but it wasn't bad just annoying as I wanted to read about Jaxi and Blake and then there weren't in the story, bah!
