I was introduced to this series by reading the novella “Where there’s a Will” by Katherine Garbera and Eve Gaddy and was more than happy to find this, the fourth book in the series. This time the story focus is on Xander Blue, who unexpectedly learnt that his father was Boots Kelly after being called, with his twin brother, to listen to his will being read. Now he’s living on the ranch his father owned together with his twin and his step-brothers. Part of the terms of the will include insisting that all four men live and work together in Whisky River for a year and that if one leaves they all lose everything.
When Xander spots Bailey Richmond walking into the room he can’t take his eyes off her, the attraction is instant. Bailey, however, has very good reasons not to trust men like him, one of which is her six year old son, Seth. Seth’s father deserted her when she was six months pregnant and has never been in touch to see if she and his son are ok, indeed he’s never even spoken to her since he ran. Can Xander help Bailey recover her trust in men and, more especially, teach her to trust him? Is this lust or love? Will they have a chance to find out?
Once more the impact of past events and relationships on the present are explored in a manner which makes it so easy to empathise with all characters concerned. The story has plenty of obstacles, twists and turns to keep it an interesting read and great addition to the Whiskey River series and a lovely, enjoyable romance to get lost in. I have heard of another book in this series being released in September (One Night with the Playboy by Katherine Garbera) and I’ll certainly be looking out for it and other books by this author!
