Series: Whiskey Creek bk 2
Author: Brenda Novak
After growing up in cheap motels, moving from town to town with her sister and mother, Cheyenne Christensen is grateful to be on her own. She’s grateful, too, for the friends she found once her family settled in California. But she’s troubled by the mystery of her earliest memories, most of which feature a smiling blonde woman. A woman who isn’t her mother.
Although Cheyenne has repeatedly asked for explanations, the people who could help aren’t talking. Cheyenne is set on finding answers, but without so much as a birth certificate, it won’t be easy.
Things get even more complicated when her closest friend is attracted to the man Cheyenne has secretly loved for years. For Eve’s sake, she decides to step aside — which lands her right in the arms of Dylan Amos, oldest and baddest of the hell-raising Amos brothers. He’s the kind of guy she’s sworn to avoid. She can’t afford to make a mistake, not when she finally has a chance to learn who she really is and change her life for the better. But . . . maybe there’s more to Dylan than she thought. Maybe letting him go would be a bigger mistake.
I’m not gonna lie, this series is turning out to be one of my favorite contemporary series of the year, and this book is my favorite book in the series so far.
Dylan and Cheyenne’s relationship is anything but easy, and one that kept me glued to my kindle as I read it, for so many reasons.
Do to circumstances beyond their control neither one of them have had an easy life, and they’ve done the best they could with what they had. Dylan suddenly had to raise his younger siblings when he was still a teenager himself. He’ll be the first one to admit that he didn’t always do the right thing, but he did do the best he could.
Cheyenne on the other hand has had the responsibility of taking care of her mom and sister. Neither one of whom appreciated all she did for them. And in the back of Cheyenne’s mind she’s always wondered if she had another family out there. That she was kidnapped, because her mom has one excuse after another for why she doesn’t have a birth certificate.
When Dylan and Cheyenne initially hook up its simply supposed to be a booty call thing only, but it quickly turns to more for Dylan. Cheyenne on the other hand is torn because the guy she has liked and thought herself in love with since she was a teenager is finally interested in her. As she goes between the two men she’s torn on who to choose.
I have to admit that I wanted to reach in and shake Cheyenne and make her choose Dylan. But that of course would have made the book really short, and I didn’t want that.
I do have to say that I really liked how everything concluded for Cheyenne and Dylan. It was perfect for them.
We also get more from the other members of Cheyenne’s group, and based on what happens in this book I’m expecting great things.
This book does take place of the Christmas holiday, making it a perfect book to read over the holidays.
