    Loved it!

    Loved this story! Although I wasn't a fan of Eli in the beginning I must say he grew on me as the story went on. Eli hasn't seen Piper Beauregard in 16 years so seeing her now is shocking. That shock is nothing compared with what he feels when he sees the teenage boy standing next to her. The kid is the spitting image of Eli so there is no doubt the boy is his. To add to the drama Piper had been Eli's brother's girlfriend prior to their night of passion. Needless to say there is quite a bit of angst at the beginning of the story but the author did a great job of laying out their story and helping us understand these characters and the events of the past. This is a wonderfully written story and one I definitely recommend.

    Secrets

    The Rancher’s Secret Son (The Montana Merricks Book 2) by Barbara Dunlop. This is Rancher Eli Merrick and Piper Beauregard’s story. I really enjoyed Eli and Piper’s story. There are so many hurdles that Eli and Piper need to overcome to find true love. Can Eli forgive Piper for not telling him he has a son who is now sixteen? Is there still chemistry between them? Eli’s character may come off harsh but the man has missed so much of his son’s life. Plus Eli has always had feelings for Piper. But does Piper feel the same? I enjoyed Eli and Piper’s son’s (Tristen) character too. FYI, contains mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    seacret child

    After 16 years Eli finds out that a one night stand with his teenage crush has created a son. After finding out he makes that Piper moves with their son on his family ranch. Although they fell strong chemistry between them they are fighting it and it gets stronger every day. What can I say about the story it was emotionally, but I didn't get Piper and her reasons not to be with Eli after they cleared the past. Eli was also confusing especially his jealousy toward his brother. The story has a lot of family drama and growing up teenagers problems and a lot of grown-up love problems. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly

    Enjoyable secret son/ second chance romance

    Three and a half stars. Oddly the second secret baby/ second chance romance I have read in two days, albeit the previous novel was an historical. I first came across Barbara Dunlop when reading the American Extreme Bull Riders series so when I saw her name on NetGalley I requested the book, even though I am a bit ambivalent about cowboy romances - the Extreme Bull Riders made me change my mind. Eli Merrick is the older brother of Maddie, heroine of Chase. The Merrick siblings have reluctantly realised they can't afford to save their family farm/ home and so they are packing up and moving to a much cheaper farm in Marietta, Montana. When Eli and his brothers arrive at the old family home to finish packing, 24 hours than they had originally planned, Eli is astonished to see a young teenage boy helping with the packing, a boy who bears a striking resemblance to him and his brothers. When it is revealed that the boy, Tristen, is the son of Piper Beauregard, Eli's brother Lucas' childhood girlfriend Eli realises that old secrets have come back to haunt him. Eli had always had a crush on Piper, even before she started dating Lucas, so when he saw her walking home crying he stopped to help her, one thing led to another and they spent a passionate night together. But never in a million years did he expect to have a teenage son. Incensed by Piper keeping their son a secret from him Eli decides to take Tristen with him to Montana. While Eli tries to connect with his son he fights his ongoing attraction to Piper, especially since there seem to be unresolved feelings between Piper and Lucas but as family dramas engulf them can he and Piper admit their true feelings - even to themselves? I really liked the story, I'm a sucker for a big family home/ business. I liked Piper and Tristen and I liked the other members of the family. The person I liked least (not hated, just had reservations) was Eli. Eli was a big alpha male and he was too fond of laying down the law and ho boy did he hold onto a grudge. Nevertheless, Eli endeared himself to me in the end. I am definitely looking out for the next book in the series? Which brother is next? Wyatt? Lucas? Or the youngest, Kane? I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
