New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Ashley brings a new novel in her River Rain series…
From a very young age, Chloe Pierce was trained to look after the ones she loved.
And she was trained by the best.
But when the man who looked after her was no longer there, Chloe is cast adrift—just as the very foundation of her life crumbled to pieces.
Then she runs into tall, lanky, unpretentious Judge Oakley, her exact opposite. She shops. He hikes. She drinks pink ladies. He drinks beer. She’s a city girl. He’s a mountain guy.
Obviously, this means they have a blowout fight upon meeting. Their second encounter doesn’t go a lot better.
Judge is loving the challenge. Chloe is everything he doesn’t want in a woman, but he can’t stop finding ways to spend time with her. He knows she’s dealing with loss and change.
He just doesn’t know how deep that goes. Or how ingrained it is for Chloe to care for those who have a place in her heart, how hard it will be to trust anyone to look after her…
And how much harder it is when it’s his turn.
The Kristen Ashley I loved is back!!!
Totally worth the time and money. Fully developed characters and relationships before the sex. Interesting secondary characters. All the fashion, interior decorating, and food, plus local color you can want. Loved the little peaks at the Burg and Colorado books. I think Rhys is already my favorite character.
Already love this series
Okay let’s start with the FABULOUS cocoroco! How can you not love her? Yes she pushes away the equally FABULOUS and also dashing Judge but it was so great to see his persistence of Chloe. You have to read after the climb to understand Corey Szabo and all he meant to the pierce family. So it was understandable why Chloe struggled with letting herself go to Judge at first. But after she does it’s all vintage KA! The dates, the amazing love scenes, the banter between the couple. I really loved the family dynamic in this book as well. Seeing how close Chloe is to her family and vice versa and seeing how Judge grew up so much differently than Chloe did. I CANNOT WAIT FOR RIX’s story!!!
This is my first Kristen Ashley book. I know I know! Really not on purpose, but finally, I’ve broken that. I very much enjoyed Judge & Chloe’s story, their differences, their banter, their chemistry. Whew! Again, very much enjoyed this and can’t wait for the next!
