In exchange for an honest review

At the moment I can not remember Gavin at all from his brother's book, I do remember Louisa though, at least the fact that her ranch had burned. But anyway this is now their book.

Lou was in a fire and is now scarred. She does hide away her scars, and it seems her ex was a real piece of work. Her grandmother is also talking about getting Lou's father to come and help out, and who knows, take over. This has to be stopped.

Gavin wants more, and not just to be a ranch hand under his brother. Which I get, but at the same time, what's your deal man? Just leave then.

These two will pretend to be married so that Lou can get her ranch and so that Gavin can get away too.

Of course he always fancied her, and she has those scars that she can not forget.

I did feel that more should have happened, I usually like drama free books, but here there could have been some cos nothing really stood in their way. It was their pretend courtship that turned real and then they lived happily ever after. That is really the whole story.

I am so used to narrators having a drawl and he did not. Though maybe you are not supposed to in Colorado? But I miss it! Cowboys should have one.

But he does have a nice female and male range.

In Colorado's glorious big-sky country, everything is done with cowboy flair - even boot-stomping, hat-tipping cowboy weddings....   

As the middle Tyler brother, Gavin doesn't always have much say in ranch decisions, but when it comes to his heart, he's the only authority. He's loved Louisa "Lou" Fairchild for longer than he can remember, even though they've never been more than friends. But with Lou stuck between the proverbial rock and hard place, Gavin is going to help the way any true friend would - with a proposal of a strictly business-like, in-name-only least to start.     

Lou can't believe her beloved grandmother has backed her up against the wall. The choice between finding a man to marry and letting her no-good father back into the family to run the ranch isn't a choice at all! But when her sister counters with an even less savory idea, Lou knows what she must do - say yes to the only man she's ever trusted. But somehow pretending to be in love with good-natured Gavin suddenly begins to feel alarmingly real - and she downright likes it.      

Can a sham marriage become the truest kind of love?   


  1. Hmmmm... not really any drawl in Colorado, but I get what you mean - it seems cowboys should have their own accent.

  2. No, Colorado people don’t drawl. It sounds cute and sweet but it is a tiny bit disappointing that nothing happened and that it was so predictable.

    1. I am so disappointed, no more Colorado cowboys!

  3. There's low drama and then there's NO drama lol You need a smidge.

  4. I still have not read Helm. I guess I like to have a bit of drama in romances as well.

    1. I have enjoyed her other books, but this, eh

  5. Sounds nice enough but just lacking that bit of extra tension that makes it a worthwhile read.

  6. Sometimes there needs to be a sprinkle of drama.
