Meet the Kellys of Whiskey River, Texas, men who have always gone through life, and women, with their father’s legendary charm.
Trey Kelly has it all. Eldest son of Boots Kelly, Trey runs the Kelly ranch, and Trey’s heart is with his “babies”, Kelly’s Champs, the World Champion cutting horses he breeds and sells. Women love Trey and he loves women, but he’s never met the one he wanted for keeps. Until…
Reclusive Ariana Wright‘s lavender farm sits next door to the Kelly spread. Ariana is a smart, ambitious chemist and after the car accident that left her scarred, the success of her new line of lavender-based beauty products is all Ariana is interested in.
Convincing Ariana to take a chance on love is a task that takes all of Trey’s cowboy determination. But can Ariana let go of the wounds of the past and give herself more than one night with the cowboy?
★★★★☆ : Great! I liked this book!
The Kellys’s family lawyer read Boots Kellys will and all were stunned. Apparently, Trey and his brother Wyatt learned they got another pair of brothers who were going to split all of Kellys holdings. Trey was just reeling from the news about their surprise inheritance when he happened to see Ariana flat on her bum in the middle of his land, splashing water and seemingly injured. The reclusive Ariana Wright didn’t really want to be seen in his land, if not for the incessant barking of a stray dog near her house. When she discovered the cause of the ruckus, that’s when she stumbled and fell… into the hands of the gorgeous cowboy Trey.
Both parties initially were at odds with each other, because they both wanted the same land for their own personal reasons. But soon, a compromise was made and what followed was an intense and intimate kindling only Trey and Ariana could put off.
Can I just say, I got love-struck the moment Trey lent his helping hand to Ariana and the stray dogs? And then when Trey asked Ariana to have dinner with him? Oh yes, I am that mushy and sentimental. I instantly fell for Trey Kelley because he didn’t mind Ariana’s scar, her aloof attitude, her wayward behavior. Right from the start, I knew I was in for a saccharine kind of novel Tule Publishing is known for. Eve Gaddy made me feel good and cuddly!
NOTE: I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
