Fast track up the political ladder, fast cars, fast women - that's Garrett McKettrick. Make that was. A scandal has brought him home to Blue River, Texas, a place where a man can slow down, take stock and plan his next move. Which doesn't include staying at the family ranch with his brothers. A city boy, Garrett doesn't think he has the land in his blood.
But Blue River has other attractions, like his former high school nemesis, Julie Remington. Now a striking woman, Julie comes complete with a four-year-old cowboy, a three-legged beagle and deep ties to the community. Good thing they have nothing in common...except their undeniable attraction a future brighter than the Texas sun.
Another nice story starring a McKettrick and a Remington. Am I the only one that thinks it's strange that three brothers would fall for three sisters - the premise of the series. I think it is, but that won't stop me from reading the books.
Garrett is in a crossroads of sorts, the Senator that he worked for is involved in a scandal and Garrett is licking his wounds at home. I found him somewhat naive when it came the the "good" senator. Or maybe just idealistic about this person he put on a pedestal. Julie is a high school English teacher who is also in charge of the theatre program at school, she has a asthmatic child who she at times over protects. All of the sudden the absent father wants to be a part of the child's life and Julia is having a hard time adjusting. Garrett and Julia are instantly attracted to each other and suddenly the feelings run deeper than they thought they would.
Like I said above it was a nice story, the characters likable enough, the sex scenes were good but I found their connection to be lacking. I'm starting to sound like a broken record....
