Once a cowboy, always a cowboy.
Colton Hartman hung up his spurs at eighteen vowing never to return home. Years later, he comes back for his father’s funeral determined to sell his one-third share of the family ranch. Except his irritable, unappeasable father threw one last curveball—to inherit, he and his brothers have to live together on the ranch for a year. The ranch needs massive repairs on a tight budget and even tighter timeline, and the best contractor in Garnet Valley is unfortunately the one woman who never wants to see him again.
August “Gus” Jones is determined to prove she’s ready to take over her father's struggling construction firm. Which means she can’t turn down the lucrative Hartman Ranch job, even though the man hiring her is Colton Hartman, the man who disappeared after she declared her love and broke her heart.
As Colton once again works the ranch, the attraction between him and Gus quickly flames. Can she convince this stubborn cowboy that this time love is worth sticking around for?
The Best Man’s Bride
Overall a sweet story, although the transition from book one to book two was very weak. Just implying with the envelope waiting for them that something was going to happen was lame. We never really got to see how Jace reacted to hearing about his father’s will. Then in the beginning of book 2 I waited to see if there would be a revelation… and nothing. Disappointing!!
