Jared Walker is a single dad who knows what it’s like to be burned by a woman. His ex-wife tormented him in a way that’s unforgivable. It makes sense that Jared doesn’t trust women. He’s not looking for love, but when his cousin Travis puts Jared in charge of the Walker family reunion, Jared just might find himself in over his head. In more ways than one.
Hope Lambert has one goal in life. To keep Dead Heat Ranch prospering. From sun up to sun down, she has a single-minded focus working alongside her four sisters, the job isn’t always easy, but it’s definitely worth it. Hope is convinced she needs nothing more than what’s right in front of her. Until he walks into the stable.
It’s easy to think you know what’s best for you. That is until your heart is put to the test. What happens when the cautious cowgirl and the sexy single dad come face to face? The chemistry threatens to scorch them both. Giving in is easy. Not falling in love is the hard part.
This novel is a Coyote Ridge/Dead Heat Ranch crossover.
The elder Walkers and Lamberts sure know how to raise strong-willed, passionate, and hot as hell children, so when Nicole Edwards fuses these two families together in a crossover of epic proportions, readers should be prepared to revel in a whole lot of snark, steam, and shenanigans like only the Walkers/Lamberts can bring.
Jared Walker is all cowboy, which might not put him at the top of Hope Lambert’s to-do list, but she quickly adds him when she’s drawn to him as soon as they meet, and he offers her a chance at no strings sex – an idea that has her “undersexed body” all hot and bothered in the most delicious ways.
Jared and Hope might have differing priorities – his being his son and hers being her family’s ranch, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t find some time for themselves in order to see where their “overwhelming magnetism” takes them, and if it leads to more, which Jared is definitely not opposed to, perhaps they’ll find some balance in their lives and realize that one selfish woman and one or two insensitive men do not equate to all women or all men leaving them destroyed and heartbroken.
Nicole Edwards consistently creates stories that are well written and full of heart. and Jared is no exception. Jared and Hope’s story has all of the components that I’ve come to expect and adore from Nicole Edwards:
A member of the Walker family who knows what it means to protect his own.
A Walker hero who is the perfect mix of dirty and sweet, both in and out of the bedroom.
An electric connection between the hero and the heroine who can’t help but give into what their bodies want because the temptation and need is too great.
A feisty heroine who works her ass off for her family and carries the weight of that burden in order to prevent herself from getting attached to anyone besides her sisters and father.
Meddling relatives who can’t help but force the hero and heroine to see what’s missing in their lives and why it’s important to want more out of life than their family and their work.
And…one fantastic supporting cast of characters who are a testament to everything their families are and how having love in their lives have changed them in the best possible ways.
