Blurb: Despite the loving support of his family, Lorcan James wants to try life on his own, so at twenty-one, he finds himself walking half way across the country in search of adventure. What he finds is desperation, desperation that leads him straight to the Whispering Pines Ranch and right into the path of its strong, arrogant, gorgeous owner, who awakens something in Lorcan he didn’t even know, existed.
Quinn Taylor is up to his neck in grief and frustration dealing with a neighboring rancher who wants nothing more than to see him go belly-up. He doesn’t need more complications, but from the moment he lays eyes on Lorcan, his world turns upside down. Despite finding in Quinn what his heart craves, Lorcan refuses to be Quinn’s dirty little secret—and Quinn isn’t the only one vying for Lorcan’s attention. Ranch hand Jess will happily declare his love for Lorcan to the world, something Quinn won’t offer—something Lorcan needs above all else.
Review: Now don’t fall over in shock, but I had no choice but to give this book a 5 heart rating. Yes, I know, I’m more of a 4 heart rating kinda girl, but what can I say, this book is brilliant and the author is evil for the way we have been left hanging and panting for the next book.
I am not giving anything away about this book because you have to experience it for yourself but this I will tell you; we get to know the characters well, we end up loving and hating them and wishing they were real so we can shout at them and tell them to pull their heads out of their butt’s. And I mean the three main characters here; the supporting characters are lovable and sweet.
You end up nodding your head in understanding, shaking your head in bewilderment and muttering to yourself about stupid men who just don’t talk. The sex scenes are hot, the frustration and disappointment feel real and the heartbreak is touching, this book does not end how you want it to (no matter how you beg and plead it to), which is why I am waiting with hope for the sequel. I actually want to do a Kathy Bates (for those of you who haven’t heard of her read Misery by Stephen King) and make this author write at least 5,000 pages more, but I suppose I will have to wait just like everyone else for books 2 & 3. Just don’t make me wait too long… Bwahaha Mwahaha. (Sorry that just slipped out. Lol)
So what would I recommend…? Get the book, read it, and then hang there for ages waiting for the next one. (Yeah ‘cuz I have to (boo hoo)) Buy the book and wait for the other books to be released. (Wish I had that option) but whichever one you decide to do I will always recommend that you buy this book ‘cuz it is BRILLIANT.
