Back Cover Blurb:

Carolyn Brown’s New York Times and USA Today bestselling cowboys prove that love is bigger in Burnt Boot, Texas
She’s got too many cowboys on her hands

Leah Brennan has always been the good girl of the Brennan family, groomed to become the matriarch of the clan. When a dark-eyed, tattooed, ponytailed bad boy saunters into her life, Leah knows he’s off-limits—but his mesmerizing gaze makes her forget everything she used to think was important. As town-wide tension rises, Leah wonders if love really can conquer all…

And the whole town’s taking sides

When Rhett O’Donnell roars into Burnt Boot on a hot July evening, the first thing he sees is a beautiful blonde. She puts a little extra giddy-up in his heartbeat, but when Rhett’s desire throws him into the middle of a love triangle and a hundred-year-old feud, he realizes that winning his cowgirl’s heart will be a lot more complicated than he thought. 

My Review:

Brown returns to Burnt Boot, Texas with her readers in a story that was both comically light and emotionally hard hitting. She brings the setting to life with picturesque yet extremely vivid descriptions that allowed me to walk through these ranches alongside the characters. All the while, Brown tells a complex yet easily enjoyable tale about love, family, and all of the headaches that go with it.

The feud between these two families was absolutely hilarious. It was so blown out of proportion that I couldn’t help but laugh at it. That said, because of it there were also some characters that I absolutely couldn’t stand.

Nothing topped Leah & Rhett in this story however. As easy as it was for them to come together as individuals, the sheer number of things that they were battling was astounding. Not only was the relationship between them fantastic, but as individuals they were the type of people that you really want to read about. I enjoyed the fact that above all they both stayed true to themselves.

This novel was a great addition to Brown’s Burnt Boot series. It was a fun read with that hint of emotion that makes the romance shine all the more brightly. It is best read as part of this series, but can also be easily read as a standalone.
