    Great read!

    Even though this book is part of a series it definitely could be read as a standalone book. This was a quick read that I enjoyed from start to finish. The characters were believable as well as enjoyable. The chemistry between the characters was hot and palpable. The plot moved along at a steady pace and did not drag. It kept me reading from the first page to the last. I would recommend this book to others as I enjoyed this story. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book.

    Max is the 5th book in the 7 Brides for 7 Brothers series, and while I plan to go back and read the first 4 books in the series, I can say from personal knowledge that Max reads well as a stand-alone story. When billionaire James Brannigan died, he left each of his 7 sons an inheritance that had something to do with his and their mother's past. With Max, his father left him the deed to the Applegate Farm in Kentucky. Unknown to Max, his mother was best friends with the original owner of the farm and she had a great love for the horses raised and trained there. Max who is a former Nave SEAL, is now working as an independent contractor in war zones and is ready to get out and start his own protection service state-side. Max is so not prepared to meet Ellie Applegate when he comes to Kentucky to sell the farm and move on with his life. Ellie has been raised to run the farm and train the horses her entire life and thanks to Max's dad, she was able to keep the farm when her mom was sick. First of all, I absolutely loved Ellie. She is such a strong character. She has had to work pretty much around the clock with almost no help to keep her farm and training facility running after her mom got sick. She has scrimped and saved to do everything in her power to keep the farm running while paying back to loan to Max's dad. She is also an amazing friend and employer to the one employee she still has. I also loved how she was willing to stand up to Max when he first approached her about selling the farm so they could split the proceeds equally. I love strong women, and Ellie had strength to spare. Max and Ellie also seemed to connect pretty quickly. Yes they had really great chemistry, but I really loved they truly became friends before they became lovers. Ellie showed Max everything about the farm that she loved and even was able to find people and pictures to share stories about his mom on the farm. I just really loved watching their relationship develop from friends to lovers and absolutely fell in love with them as a couple. While I wanted Max and Ellie to have no issues to get to their happily ever after, I knew that Max needed more time to accept what he knew he wanted in his heart. When Ian Black, yes that Ian Black, contacted him for a new mission, I knew he would take the job, even knowing how much it would hurt Ellie. OMG I wanted to cry when he left for his mission, knowing they loved each other. I also wanted to hit Max for hurting Ellie that way. After reading Max, it made me want to go back and read the first 4 books in the series to see what James Brannigan had done for his other sons. I honestly loved their dad seems to making amends for not being their for his sons after their mother's death with each bequest. Fans of Lynn Raye Harris will absolutely adore Max, and new readers will fall in love with her voice. Rating: 4.5 Stars(B+) Review copy provided by publisher
