Meet the Kellys of Whiskey River, Texas, men who have always gone through life, and women, with their father’s legendary charm.
Wyatt Kelly, CEO of Kelly Boots, is rumored to do everything with his cowboy boots on, including seducing women into memorable one-night stands. Growing up the second eldest son of a philandering charmer, Wyatt’s seen first hand how messy relationships can get when the heart’s involved, and he’s determined to leave no scars. No woman’s tempted Wyatt to break his vow until he meets Juliette Rossi.
Juliette is all about business. She’s focused on turning the lavender farm she and her cousin inherited into a successful, world-wide company. Her meticulous plans are on the right track until she accepts a dare to spend the night with Wyatt after the annual Boots & Bangles Gala. Juliette’s fantasized about Wyatt for years... One night will get him out of her system for good, right?
Can she convince Wyatt that he’s more than his Kelly heritage? Will Wyatt agree that one night just isn't enough?
There was more to this story than the blurb allude, and much more to the characters than player and a cold business woman, as they see themselves at first. In fact, the characters are rather complex, and have some concern they have to face within, until they are ready for a relationship.
They are both stubborn, business minded, and determined to keep living as they have. Wyatt is struggling with his father's death, the new brothers that came their life unannounced, and his fear of being the same kind of man, unable to commit, as his father was. Wyatt doesn't do relationships, he never has, and he is not about to change that, no matter how much Juliette entices him.
Juliette came back from France a bit broken, her plans with her career, that she had invested everything in, didn't work out, her reputation as a cold business woman bothered her, and her attraction to Wyatt was taking her concentration.
The affair Wyatt and Juliette set out to have, is scorching hot. They have the chemistry, they connect, and walking away from it, is making both miserable.
But before they can build a true, lasting relationship, they have some work to do within, and it's not an easy road.
I have enjoyed this series, the contention and bonding of the new brothers, the passion and ardor the brothers set out to do everything in their lives, and the pure adoration they have for the women they fall for. Wyatt and Juliette had all that as well, as soon as they got through the angst and misgivings they had about what their future holds. It was a quick read, with a zeal, fervor, and joy
