From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Christopher Rice comes a new standalone romance…
When Amber Watson walks in on her husband in the throes of extramarital passion with one of his employees, her comfortable, passion-free life is shattered in an instant. Worse, the fate of the successful country music bar that bears her family's name suddenly hangs in the balance. Her soon to be ex-husband is one of the bar's official owners; his mistress, one of its employees. Will her divorce destroy her late father's legacy?
Not if Amber's adopted brother Caleb has anything to do with it. The wandering cowboy has picked the perfect time for a homecoming. Better yet, he's determined to use his brains and his fists to put Amber's ex in his place and keep the family business intact. But Caleb's long absence has done nothing to dim the forbidden desire between him and the woman the State of Texas considers to be his sister.
Years ago, when they were just teenagers, Caleb and Amber shared a passionate first kiss beside a moonlit lake. But that same night, tragedy claimed the life of Caleb's parents and the handsome young man went from being a family friend to Amber's adopted brother. Has enough time passed for the two of them to throw off the roles Amber's father picked for them all those years ago? Will their desire for each other save the family business or put it in greater danger?

Can't wait to red more about the B Squad and follow Taz and Bianca's story.
I received this ARC for an honest review. This book was great! I love the hero and heroine and the way they interact. They have such great chemistry! The hero is an alpha male for sure. Likes to be in control and commands your attention. The heroine is feisty, confident and knows what she wants. The storyline is great. You've mystery and suspense and definitely a lot of sexy times.
The only thing wrong is that I wish it was longer! I can't wait to read Brazen because it continues their story. I definitely recommend this book because it draws you in and doesn't want to let go!
Hot and Heavy Warning
I really enjoyed this book! I enjoyed the sassy main charcter, and her ability to playfuly banter with the male main character. The only thing that I am really sad about is that now I have to wait to find out what happens with all of the "B Squad". It was a good quick read that had a good fast pace to it. I am sad however that the story was not a long as I would have wanted. Maybe a little more back story about the girls? Maybe a flash back to the "good old days" at St. B's to show the bond of the girls?
