My heart broke. My soul cheered. My temperature was through the roof. Loved, loved, loved every minute of it.
Three hunky cowboys struggling with the loss of their parents and sister, what's not to love? Granted it's been two years since the drunk driver took the lives of half of the Macintosh family, but Emily is learning of the death of her childhood best friend for the first time. This is the story of how the four of them heal from multiple past tragedies together.
Emily is a mess. Not a little mess, the girl is on probation and limited to staying with her grandparents in their small town. But that's ok. Emily is ready to see her favorite gal pal and her three hunky brothers again. Finally, they will see her as the woman she is and not their little sister's best friend. Manipulating men is what she does best.
All three Macintosh brothers are very different souls who have dealt with their tragedy (or not) in their own way. The one thing they can all agree on is their desire for Emily. Everyone sees his future in her eyes. Instead of letting herself tear the brothers apart, Emily works to prove to the cowboys that she belongs to all of them and together they can be happy.
The heat factor in this one is high. Making it even more fun is how unique each brother is with Emily. If you like it chocolate, vanilla or strawberry there is a man for you here. And when the three combine...yeehaw y'all! Talk about ride 'em cowboys! The ménage part doesn't come till towards the end, but it is worth the wait, and there is plenty of hawt along the way.
The pacing is fast. I pretty much whipped through this one. The story is tender. It crept into my dreams that night, which marks a good book to me. The characters are all endearing in their own way and you can't help but want happiness to come at long last for all of them.
There's all kinds of action and suspense outside of the relationship. Emily is a desirable young thing and not only the Macintosh men are after her. Some dudes just don't know how to take no for an answer.
Cowboy lovers, ménage lovers, brokenhearted lovers, this is a score for you. Enjoy!
