Series: Six Pack Ranch bk 4
Author: Vivian Arend
Allison Parker needs a convincing excuse to come home to Rocky Mountain House. A hopelessly romantic reason that won’t let her mother suspect the truth—that Allison has discovered Mom is keeping a terrible secret from the family.
Gabe Coleman is struggling with two of the roughest parts of ranching: dealing with his bull-headed mule of a father, and making enough to pay the bills. When his old friend Allison offers to help him develop his ideas for organic ranching—in trade for pretending to be her fiancé—it sounds like the perfect set-up.
Yet the deception leads them in an unexpected direction, where their shared daily hells are erased by nights of heavenly distraction. It’s not supposed to be real, but once the gates are opened, there’s no denying they’ve found in each other a little bit of Paradise.
To break free of the past and face the future, though, will take more than temporary pleasures. It’ll take putting their hearts on the line.
Tortured hero with a guardian-angel complex, grief-stricken heroine willing to sacrifice everything for family. Break out the tissues, this trip to the ranch is a heartbreaker on the way to the HEA.
I’m a huge fan of this series. There is just something about this family that I love, and I love to revisit the Coleman family.
From the first moment Gabe showed up on the page in the first book in Rocky Mountain Heat I was intrigued by him. There was just something about him that left you wondering who the real Gabe was. In each of the following books we got to see more and more of Gabe.
The term good ole boy comes to mind when I think Gabe. He’s the kind of guy who will do anything for his family, and not expect anything in return. He does it because he understands the importance of family.
Alison is the perfect match for Gabe. She is someone who puts family first and drops everything to be there for her mom. When she enlists the help of Gabe to help her family without them knowing it she got the perfect partner.
I’m going to admit it, there is absolutely NOTHING in this book I didn’t like. From Gabe and Allison’s relationship to what happens in Gabe’s family, yes it has to do with Travis, oh and something with the twins.
This book has everything I look for in a great romance, characters I like and want to be together, a conflict which makes them grow together as a couple, scenes where we get to see who the hero really is, and a family that makes them want to pull their hair out and yet they still love them.
I will say that there are a couple of scenes with Gabe where my heart broke for him because he feels so much.
