Former Army Ranger Brick Mitchum isn’t a relationship kind of guy. But when by-the-book event planner Beth Brannigan kisses his socks off, he starts to wonder if she’s the exception and that maybe it’s time he settled down. She’s mysterious. Unpredictable. Curvy in every way he needs…
And apparently the completely off-limits sister of a good friend. If her brother finds out she’s sleeping with Brick, he’ll kill him, but Brick is beginning to think she’s worth the risk.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Entangled Publishing via NetGalley and I also purchased a copy.
This was hilariously funny at times to the point of having to stop reading. Other times the action and dialogue was so poignant that I had tears in my eyes. It is a wonderful book that brought out a roller-coaster set of emotions in me and I enjoy a book that does that. The plot was beautifully written. I felt like I was right there with the characters.
Brink is good friends with Cord. They served together in the Army as Rangers. Now they co-own a ranch and a construction business dedicated to helping veterans. There is an unwritten code that they live by, you don't mess with a fellow Ranger's sister. Unfortunately Cord only uses their code name with discussing his friends with his family. Beth and Brick met at a bar. They immediately click. Two weeks later, Beth is back in town on business and is dared by her friend to kiss the next single man to enter the fair where they are. Low and behold, in walks Cord. The attraction between them has grown and things just get hotter. After Beth discovers that Brick is her brother's friend, Romeo, she is torn. If she reveals her identity (as Cord calls her Lizzy to everyone), Brick will drop her like a hot potato.
The journey to their HEA, is one that is filled with sex, fun dates, but strife as well. This book is written in a dual POV format. It is wonderful to see the turmoil and guilt that Beth is struggling with; it really humanized her. Brick on the other hand is struggling as he has never done a relationship before. As the days go by, Brick's rules fall by the way-side one by one.
I so enjoyed this book. I had a few tears as the story developed and things came to a head. I adored Beth's courage. This story is the second in the series and it is a keeper and I look forward to re-read this one. You don't have to read the first book in the series to enjoy this one BUT I would as the prior characters reappear. Besides it was just a wonderful read as this one.
Due to the sexual nature of some scenes, I highly recommend this book (and the prior one) to anyone over the age of 18.
Secrets can do so much damage!!
This is book 2 in The Men of At Ease Ranch series and it features Army Ranger Brick Mitchum and party planner Beth Brannigan. These two are burning up the sheets in this sweet and sexy romance. Secrets are very bad as Beth soon finds out. Secrets between best friends are even worse.
There's never a dull moment in this story. This author knows how to write her military men as cowboys. Delicious! Another great story with fantastic characters. I'm definitely looking forward to the next one.
This author is new to me. Enjoyed this read...light, romantic. Overall, this was a good-feel book. Plan to read more from this author.
