It’s time to go back where the women are sassy and the men are ruggedly charming. I delighted in seeing a good girl trying to be a flirt while the town bad boy is ready to settle down. These two kept me laughing and cheering them on!
Presley Walker is the playboy of the family, but after watching his brothers and sister start to fall for great women/man, he wants what they have. No one takes him seriously, so when he decides he wants to hand craft an instrument like his granddaddy, he keeps it a secret. Now his sister has been called away to help her husband during a chili contest she was arranging with her bar. He knows he can do the work even if Dixie thinks he is a screw up.
Dixie King has led a quiet life for the most part as the preacher’s daughter. When she strikes out on her own and gets a job waiting tables at a bar, her family of course gets concerned. Then her grandma starts getting into trouble and they ask Dixie to move in and curb her wild ways. Dixie has plans for life, but working at the bar helps her save up for what she wants to do. Unfortunately, her boss has to leave and puts her in charge of the chili cook off event….along with Cowboy Casanova Presley, who everyone knows is undependable.
Presley and Dixie walk a fine line of attraction and dislike, but when rumors start flying about a big company coming in to take over the town, Presley convinces Dixie to flirt with an out of towner to find out what he knows. Never having flirted a day in her life, Presley start showing her and gets more than he bargained for.
These two were fun, but at times I thought they had rocks in their brains. Presley wants to settle down, but really doesn’t think of Dixie like that even though he is attracted to her. Dixie’s a virgin and pretty sure no one in town is to her liking, not even Presley who she finds herself thinking of often.
These two skirt around each other like rattlesnakes at times, but they get there in the end. An unlikely couple, a watered down romantic scene, but a group of people I am growing to adore and I loved this sassy story.
