The last cowboy...
All work and no play makes Finn a dull cowboy. Since his divorce, Finn O'Roarke has put all of his time into his Seattle-based microbrewery, unaware that back in Wyoming, his foster parents are on the verge of ruin. Now Finn and his foster brothers are trying to save Thunder Mountain Ranch--and only one woman can help them turn it all around.
Marketing guru Chelsea Trask has had a thing for the gorgeous brewer for ages. When they work together at Thunder Mountain Ranch, however, she starts to see Finn's cowboy side. And it's irresistibly hot. Best of all, the attraction that's been sizzling beneath the surface has erupted in some very sexy situations.
But is Chelsea falling for the real Finn...or for the cowboy he used to be?
A true feel good story, about family, loyalty, and love.
Finn and Chelsea have felt the attraction to each other ever since they met five years ago. But Finn has been keeping the distance. They have been part of the series since the beginning, and I have been wondering what is the story there, and it turned out to a passionate, yet a sweet one. They both are attractive, charismatic characters, but not perfect. They have their fails and battles, past history that affects them still today, but they are willing to grow and learn from their mistakes.
The reasons behind Finn's distance are clearly played out, and are valid. But now that he can't fight the pull for Chelsea anymore, he seems to go all in. After five years of built up attraction and feelings, and friendship, it is no wonder the relationship forms quickly, after they admit their feelings to each other. I loved the honesty they have between them, the direct way they communicate, solve problems, and move forward.
At the same time, they are fighting the battle to find the finance to the Thunder Mountain Academy, and that is a thrilling roller-coaster ride. The family is all together in it, and the story has lots of fun, and endearing moments with the whole extended family. I love the idea of the academy, how the whole family pulls together to achieve it. How they support each other, and how they have made a family within each other, even though there's no blood relations. This series has been so heartfelt with the foster brothers, and this book ended with the possibility to learn the stories of the other brothers as well, I'm looking forward to them!
