A STAND ALONE story in the bestselling SIX PACK RANCH series by New York Times Bestselling Author Vivian Arend
It’s the quiet ones who take you by surprise.
Beth Danube’s emotionally abusive husband is dead and buried. So is her heart. It’s no big deal, she has all she wants: her three little boys and a fresh start in a small Alberta town. After ten years of unsatisfactory, missionary-position sex, she certainly never expected her libido to reawaken. Then one look at sex-in-boots Daniel Coleman blows the dust off her sexuality.
Sensing an edge of desperation, even fear, beneath Beth’s come-on, Daniel finds himself giving in to the powerful urge to let his normally restrained desires run wild. The lady wants non-judgmental, non-vanilla sex? She’s got it—in and out of the bedroom.
At first, friends with blazing-hot benefits is more than enough. Then Beth realizes Daniel is burning away the protective fortress around her heart…and the guilty secret she dare not reveal.
Contains: One woman determined to retake control of her life and a man with the single-minded purpose of offering her everything she needs to get there. Inappropriate behaviour in barns, change rooms, and oh-my-gawd phone sex with a cowboy.

Oh gracious, this one made me feel a plethora of emotions. I felt sad and cried for the physical and emotional pain that Daniel and Beth as well as Beths’s boys had gone through individually in their lives. I felt happy and laughed at the antics that typically happened with little boys. I felt pleased at the acceptance the Colman clan showed Beth and the boys. I felt excited about the future for all the Colman’s. This book gave me joy. You might ask why not five stars? It’s because I felt like it was a little bit of two stories in one. Gabe had a couple of chapters that were about him and I felt like I got distracted from the main story. Don’t get me wrong I liked reading about Gabe because he’s showed up before and I want his own book soon. I’ve already read a couple of the books out of order. I love this series. Until next time y’all happy reading.
I loved the story and all the possibilities with all the characters. So much love and real issues to deal with. And so well melted together with all the different family members.
