    Home to Remember

    The is a great series. Amanda Kittredge has to overcome moving out of her family home and convincing her brothers' best friend Brady Everett that she is right for him. So what if he is a decade older! ENJOY!!! "A copy of this book was provided by St. Martin's Press via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion." I HAVE READ ALL PRIOR COLD RIVER RANCH books but this one stands alone nicely too.

    What an amazing, fantastic love story!

    On the surface this looks like a typical brother's-best-friend romance, but that's just the frame that wraps around a delightful, emotionally-charged story about families and history and growing up in a small town. The writing throughout this story is simply exquisite, perfectly capturing the essence of country life as well as the intricacies of falling in love with someone you've known your whole life. "But this was a small town. Every interaction was packed full of all the things everybody knew, but didn’t say. All that history and rumor crammed into a perfectly polite hi." The story starts when Brady finally (finally!) notices that Amanda, the one girl who is absolutely, unequivocally, emphatically off-limits, has grown up into quite an attractive and compelling young woman. But, he's ten years older, is best friends with the scariest of her four older and very watchful brothers, and is smart enough to fear for his very life just by admiring her in her revealing tank top. He tries to keep his distance, but when Amanda makes her own scandalous intentions clear, Brady simply doesn't stand a chance of walking away physically or emotionally intact. There are layers upon layers of angst in this story. Brady is still dealing with the changing family dynamics after his father's recent death, while Amanda is struggling to find her place in the sun while being overshadowed by her protective family. “If you let other people dictate your life,” Kat asked softly, “how can you ever be sure you’re the one living it?” Though it's a standalone romance for Brady and Amanda, a lot of the emotional impact involves his relationship with his two older brothers, Gray and Ty, whose relationships were detailed in the previous books. "Brady thought change was the future. Gray thought it was the enemy. And as long as Gray kept thinking it was the enemy, he was bound and determined to think Brady was too." As the last Everett family story, we finally get the closure and reconciliation that's been slowing building among the three brothers. The climax was both brutally cathartic and quietly triumphant; a moment in time that won't soon be forgotten. It's rare to find a book so well-written, with so much sigh-worthy insight as well as laugh-out-loud humor. Brady is such a well-developed character, a man so torn up by his perceptions that even when he breaks Amanda's heart, the reader feels the depth of his pain and knows that Amanda does, too. Their HEA was romantic and very satisfying. This is one of my top-ten reads ever, and I wholeheartedly recommend it. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

    The last real Cowboy

    We are back at Cold Water Creek with the Everett brothers. This story shows how one person with so much love in her can change not only the person she loves but a whole family. I cried and laughed and became quite wrapped up in this book.

    Check's all the boxes!

    Best friends’ little sister, check. Four big overprotective brothers, check. Family that doesn’t take you seriously, double check. Brady and Amanda have been slotted into the roles the town and their families set them in long ago. It is burning them both up, making them angry, restless, and feeling unwanted. They don’t gravitate towards each other though, sharing their commiserated grievances, but they do end up clashing. Which leads to much more pleasurable moments. As Amanda finally learns to stand up for herself, Brady finally realizes some truths. And they had me cheering for them, and weeping for them, alternatively, and sometimes concurrently, as they figured everything out, so they could live their happily ever after, together

    Finding Home

    WOW!!! I LOVED reading Brady and Amanda’s love story in The Last Real Cowboy by Caitlin Crew, book three in her Cold River Ranch series. Brady is the youngest Everett son, the one who left the ranch to attend college and maybe prove himself to their abusive father. After graduation he stayed in Denver and worked on perfecting a bad-boy image. Returning to the ranch after the death of their father, his plans did not include being forced to work the family ranch for a year, yet there he was, agreeing to stay for the year. Amanda Kittredge, known good girl and over protected by her four older brothers, was ready for a taste of independence and rebellion. She has had a longtime crush on her brother’s best friend, bad-boy Brady Everett, so there really wasn’t anyone better than him to teach her about life and sex. When his best friend’s innocent little sister makes a pest of herself, begging him to teach her about men, Brady knows he should refuse. Amanda convinces Brady, leading to these two to off the charts chemistry and amazing lessons that just might make Brady come to love Amanda; that is if he can survive the consequences. Ms. Crew wrote a wonderfully emotional and sexy story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters, despite their misgivings and the breaking of the bro-code, giving Brady and Amanda a chance at happiness, love and a future together. I highly recommend The Last Real Cowboy to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
