I got an awesome chance to check out this book from my local library on my Kindle. I learned it was actually the first two books in the Buckhorn series, so this is a two book review.
Sawyer and his son are just fixing the fence running the perimeter of their land, when a car comes smashing through it and right into the lake. Not thinking twice, Sawyer rescues the young lady inside only to find out she is running a high fever and is on the run from a danger only she knows about. Taking her back to his house, he starts nursing her back to health, Sawyer being the only doctor for miles.
Honey is on the run from a danger she doesn’t know where is coming from. She just knows she needs to get her car fixed and back on the road to make sure the danger doesn’t reach their doorstep. But the four brothers have different ideas. They aren’t letting Honey go back to danger on her own. On top of that, the three brothers know Sawyer is falling for her even if he won’t admit it.
This was a fun book about brothers from different fathers, but the same mothers living together in the same house while raising Sawyer’s son together. They all are different. Sawyer is the doctor, Morgan the Sheriff, Jordan the vet and Gabe the local handyman not ready to grow up. Honey is just what this family needs and she needs them even if she won’t admit it.
The story was more cute to me than actually suspenseful. I loved watching the interactions between Honey and the men of this family. They all adored her, but Sawyer owned her heart. With all that testosterone, it is a wonder she stayed at all. But she handles them all like she knows what she is doing, even though she grew up in a loveless home with only a sister to hold onto.
Morgan’s story starts with Sawyer and Honey’s marriage. Misty, Honey’s sister, comes to town for the wedding and instantly Morgan and Misty feel the attraction, but fight like dogs. Morgan doesn’t want to fall for Misty. His life is on course and he is the Sheriff. Misty just doesn’t fit in, but he can’t keep away, nor his hands off of her.
Misty comes to town with everything she owns in her car. She has been found guilty for a crime she didn’t commit, broken up her engagement because she is pregnant and her fiancé doesn’t want the child, and now homeless looking to rebuild her life and find a job. She just wants to enjoy her sister’s wedding and take a few weeks to figure out how she is going to rebuild her life.
But Morgan finds out all about her story and offers her a job and a way to scratch both of their itches. What happens is a funny mix of emotions being misunderstood, justice being corrected and the tough guy falling for the beautiful woman.
