The only issue that I had with this book was Rebecca. Now don't get me wrong, she was a good leading female character, but I just got a little irritated with how she dealt with her parents. While it did annoy me a bit, it did not take me away from the story and the author did balance it by giving Rebecca a big heart and a courageous personality. I enjoyed seeing Rebecca bloom and find her niche in the story. I enjoyed Rebecca and Ben together and they went through so much together until they made it all the way to the end with their love still intact. While I am on the subject on these two love birds, I wish the author would have given me a little more on their relationship as teenagers. These two are supposedly been secretly in love with each other since high school, but neither took the leap. I just could not see why they had such strong feeling for each other as teens. Additionally, I did feel that chemistry as adults and when they meet up for the first time after Rebecca comes back to town is wonderful.!!
I loved this book and I really hope that we get a story on the other two brothers. This is "under the blanket" approved with tea on the side or wine, your choice. This story was sweet, thrilling, and intense with a sexy cowboy deputy to carry you home.
The prologue had me crying at the beginning. Between Mac and his grief and Ben, Sam and Finn’s situation and how they ended up where they were it was hard not to have a tear. But that prologue shows us a defining moment for all four of them.
Cut to present and we see the young scared boys set to stay together now Mac’s sons and adults. Sam is light hearted and adorable. Ben is still serious but not defiant and always doing what he feels is right in his heart and making his dad proud. Finn is now a lawyer and he is just as kind hearted as the other two brothers. Together they are so fun and sexy. They are loyal and kind all of them. And they love Mac, Roscoe, Zachariah and Otis like they are their family. Mac took them in and has been their dad and it is him they all try to make proud. Roscoe, Otis and Zachariah are like uncles to them and live on the ranch with them.
Here we get Ben’s story and it was at times nerve wrecking especially at the end with how Ben handled things, sensual, frustrating with Becca’s dad so glad he had an epiphany and realized his stubbornness, but no matter what it was a wonderful story of family,love, loyalty and kindness. It shows us how far Ben came from the angry boy and we see him grow and find someone to stand by his side.
Ben is a great character. He is kind, honest and loyal. Loves his family and is proud of them. He doesn’t feel the need to prove himself only do what is right and he has his dad as his guide. When he decides to help the sheriff, he didn’t expect to have such a wild time of it. And it all surrounded his crush since he was a kid Becca.
Becca was sweet and kind. She was trying to be her own person and also find what she wanted to do with her future. She was having a hard time getting her dad to see her beyond being his little girl. When her life goes a little topsy turvy and scary Ben is there for him.
Their attraction is insane but not acted on right away. We see Ben take care of Becca and make sure she is safe. We see him support and encourage her. And we see her be his friend first and foremost. When the danger in Becca’s life ratchets up is when the heat between them does as well. And when it does we get some steamy moments. But not steamy in description per se just steamy in where the intimacy is more sensual. I think that is one of the wonderful things about the writing here- we know the sensual intimacy is there but we aren’t getting that descriptive writing letting our imagination take over and allow us to have the sensual aspect of the romance be seen but not heard so to speak for it is left to our mind to add the details if you want to.
The story is sweet and intimate. We see family and love be the forefront of the book. The characters are all strong and you fall in love with them even Becca’s stubborn frustrating dad. We see Ben show Becca respect, trust, support and unconditional love even when she didn’t realize it. Becca does the same for him. These two give us a wonderfully sweet romance that has us smile and laugh especially those moments with Ben’s family. Excited to see who is next of the Monroe brothers to fall in love.
