We’re back in Buckhorn with a new generation ready to fall in love. While the series is called Buckhorn Brothers, not everyone is an original brother, which started with Gabe, Jordan, Sawyer and Morgan. Each had kids or stepkids, but they were always family. A Buckhorn Summer is the story or Jordan’s stepdaughter Lisa. Lisa is all grown up and the intense workaholic I would never have expected.

Lisa Sommerville is back home to family after finally realizing she was burned out and in need of a change. A one night stand is the catalyst that drives her to realize a change is needed. She never expected to meet that one night stand in Buckhorn! Gray Neely is the new owner of the convenience/rental/bait store on the lake. Pleasantly surprised, he’s not letting Lisa run off again.

Gray was a sigh worthy hero! After bad experience in his own career and a one night stand that rocks his world, he decides to move to Buckhorn and shed the stress of life for small town life. He hasn’t stopped thinking of Lisa, but hopes fate won’t be cruel and keep her from him forever. So when he sees Lisa, he knows he has a second chance and he isn’t going to blow it. He is patient, but firm in getting her to work in the store with him. The more time they spend together, the more he works his magic on her and helps her to realize her career isn’t the most important part of her life.

Lisa on the other side is at a cross roads in her career. Her job is killing her, but she loves it…until she doesn’t. Her brother and cousin factor into a lot of the story as they also try to distract her knowing she needs normalcy rather than concern. I loved how Lisa didn’t hide from her problems, but took the time to think about what she wanted. She never expects to see Gray again, heck she didn’t even know his name.

There is a bit of suspense that involves the entire family making an appearance, but heavily is Morgan (mayor now) and Jordan her father. This family pulls close to protect their own and while Lisa didn’t feel she fit the family, she really does. It is a family of all types of people, but they have one thing in common…they love with their entire hearts.

This is a short, happy story back in Buckhorn. All our favorite heroes and heroines make an appearance, but don’t hog the story. Lisa and Gray fall in love through a slow and sensual process that left me tingling to get to know them better and travel to Buckhorn.

I was reading Lori Foster books when I was trying to get published 15 years ago. Good for her. We can all hope for that kind of career longevity!

Ah, I love the idea that Lisa as a step-daughter learns she is part of the family. And this pair finding peace and each other in Buckhorn sounds great.

The coincidence of ending up in Buckhorn was a little silly, but these two had so much working for them. I loved it!

I did not know she was continuing this series. Love it. I do miss these shorter stories. She rocked with them.

The Buckhorn series is all about family. The last few books have been pretty short.

That’s interesting this one features the stepdaughter of one of the original daughters. Lisa sounds like a great character and I can relate to her workaholic tendecies. It’s good to hear she doesn’t hide from her problems and takes time to think about what she wants.
And it’s so much fun to see previous main characters make an appearance in later books. Great review!

Thanks! I love this series and how blood doesn’t make you family. It doesn’t matter who you are. If they take you in then you are one of them and loved for life.
