In Cold River, sometimes forbidden love is the sweetest of them all…
Perennial good girl Amanda Kittredge knows that her longtime crush on Brady Everett was never really supposed to go anywhere. But when Brady comes home to Cold River during Amanda’s first attempt at independence, well, who better to teach her about rebellion than her older brother’s bad-boy best friend?
Brady’s plans did not include being forced to work the family homestead for a year–and yet, here he is. And, to make matters worse, his best friend’s innocent little sister is making a menace of herself in the most grown-up, tempting ways. When Amanda begs Brady to teach her about men, he knows he should refuse. But could Brady’s greatest temptation be his salvation?
The Last Real Cowboy by Caitlin Crews is one hot emotional mess. A large family made up of mostly sons take it in their own minds to baby their sister. It comes down to a boiling point where Amanda can’t take their bossy treatment anymore. They treat her like a kid instead of the woman she is. Then, there’s her secret crush who thought she was still in high school. Amanda takes matters into her own hands. She moves out of the family house, changes jobs, and her attire changes too. Now, her brothers are looking at her and so is her crush. Brady cannot forget the image of the little girl he once knew as the hot woman he sees now. Angst and romance build up with every page. I enjoyed reading this story. The male idiot learns his lesson of mistreating a woman like Amanda. Amanda is a strong heroine who is determined to change her life for the best.
