Back Cover Blurb:


Faith Mendes needs to get her life in order and get a job--yesterday. Thankfully, the live-in house-keeper position at the King brothers' ranch is up for grabs. Problem is, she'd be working with her old childhood crush, Nate King. He's sexy, wealthy, and his Texas-sized charms are legendary...and, clearly, impossible to resist.

Nate never thought twice about his best friend's little sister. Back then, Faith was off-limits. But now that she's all grown up, Nate's whole world has turned upside-down. Razor-sharp, down-to-earth, and hotter-than-heck, Faith is everything Nate has ever dreamed of in a woman...and maybe even in a wife. But Faith has loved and lost enough already to risk it all on another known bad-boy. How can Nate convince her that he is the real deal--and that he's ready to rein it in and never look back?

My Review:

This novel starts off with a definite kick & it’s off and running from there. Lane has woven an excitingly hot tale that sizzles from cover to cover while tackling a myriad of topics. The intricately crafted plot allowed me to fully immerse myself in the tale while enjoying it immensely. Above all, the caring and family nature of all of the characters really shines through. I love how real life shines through in all aspects of this novel, both the good and the bad.

Faith’s combined strength and vulnerability made me want to reach out to her. I love how attentive Nate is without losing the strength and imposing nature that makes him who he is. Together this couple was an absolute blast to get to know. And the chemistry between them? It definitely left the pages sizzling.

The secondary cast was almost as much fun as the main characters. Nate’s brothers and their wives were fantastic. The banter was a lot of fun. And then there was frickin Sam and his bro code. He really threw a kink into a lot of things during this one but at the same time, I couldn’t help but love him.

This novel was a great addition to Lane’s series. It’s a great read for anyone who loves a down home country boy falling for a gal who will rock his world.
