Synopsis from Goodreads:
The youngest heir to her family’s oil fortune, Sage has always been the unbridled spitfire in the Tyler clan. Now, fresh out of college, she’s looking to settle down at last with her safe, upper-crust fiancé. Then into her life saunters Harlan Boyd, a rootless drifter recently hired for a Tyler Drilling Company project. Harlan’s just the sort of man Sage should avoid, but there’s something irresistible about the laconic cowboy that intrigues her.
When a financial crisis threatens to wreck Tyler Drilling for good, Sage and Harlan must channel their simmering chemistry into the task of saving the family business. But can she trust a man who shares her maverick spirit—and harbors long-held secrets of his own?
Sage really comes into her own as a character in this instalment of the series. There were more than a few times where I wanted to have a chat with Sage and tell her not to look a gift horse in the mouth. Yes, she is who she is, but at times she takes it almost too far. However, Brown has developed her character in such a way that it’s easy to understand and empathize with her. Match her with an alpha type, very caring male lead and you have a fantastic couple to get to know.
Overall, this was a comically enjoyable read. It wrapped up the Tyler! Family saga nicely.
