Relationships are so not his thing, but realizing Trisha is struggling to come to terms with a horrific incident from their recent deployment, Brett takes matters into his own hands, using their fake relationship to keep her on his family’s resort ranch, the perfect place for her to find peace and heal. After all, he would never let one of his own men down.
Except, Trisha is no longer a corporal under his command. Out of uniform, she is all woman, and his unexpected attraction to her soon has him forgetting their prank relationship is only for show. Who knew payback could be so sweet?
*As stated in the header, this is a sequel. It is a proper standalone however for the full backstory read Cowboy Fiancé http://amzn.to/1P4yxIT*
What does a former Marine do when she is faced with an overbearing Father and his "good" intention? If you are Trisha Jennings, you lie and say you are engaged to a man that can hold his own against your father, her friend and former CO Brett Brennan.
When Brett Brennan finds himself in a situation that he thinks is a practical joke orchastrated by his brother Finn, he rolls with punches. He loves a good practical joke, especially when it involves his brother. But he is not prepared for the consequences of this fake engagment. What starts a joke, turns into much, much more.
I liked that this was a fast paced love affair between two people who knew each other well. Friends to lovers books have always appealed to me and this one hits all the its mark. There is passion, there is angst in the form of a fake engagement but most importantly there is a heroine that is broken yet strong and takes no crap from anyone, except maybe her dad but he means no harm he just loves his daughter.
Brett cannot have been more sexy and he takes his time coming to terms with his feelings, since he had not clue what he was feeling.
There is a PTSD storyline that runs the whole story, Trisha is in denial and Brett tries to help her heal.
I recommend this as a beach read or a rainy afternoon reas. I read it in one sitting, There is a HEA and you close the book feeling satisfied where you leave the story, There is a set up for the next book and I can't wait for Liam and Stacy's story.
About the Author:
She read to me before I could read and opened up that magical world where I still reside today. Then came television and movies. Now I had three avenues to feed my imagination...and boy could I eat!
As you no doubt figured out, this lead to my writing career. After several starts in between having a son, twin sons then a daughter, I didn't get serious until my youngest child entered 1st grade. Now, I'm multi-published with several publisher and self-published in e-Book and print with a ton of voices in my head. I love those voices! They helped me achieve award winning status, and become a New York Times and USA Today Best Selling author. Hope they never stop!
