Confirmed bachelor Austin Montgomery is ready to settle down. The eldest of eight Montgomerys, he’s the big, bearded and broody one, yet one look at the new owner of the boutique across the street, he knows exactly what he wants. Her.
Finding a man is the last thing on Sierra Elder’s mind. Wanting to cover up scars that run deeper than her flesh, she finds in Austin a man that truly gets to her—in more ways than one.
Although wary, they embark on a slow, tempestuous burn of a relationship. When blasts from both their pasts intrude on their present, however, it will take more than a promise of what could be to keep them together.
Interesting characters and storyline. Moving on to next 2 books in series.55
Love her books55
Loved the story! Characters are awesome and the love story is great. Not a cliffhanger, has some twists, story keeps you engaged, definitely recommend!!!!45
Great story! Absolutely a must read!55
First not a fan of the this writing style- omniscient- I much prefer first person. Further there are so many characters introduced it was confusing. I get she wanted to set this book for others but too much. I liked Austin and Sierra but it was too diluted with side stories.35
This series just gets better and better!55
I didn't know this book involved the D/s scene when I started it. It really wasn't a big part of the story. More about finding a forever love. I liked the big family! Leads to more books with catch up scenarios from previous book characters. I have to be honest~ the cover needs to be changed. The guy on the cover had 1 tattoo and no beard. Lol That is so not Austin! Can't wait to read book 2!55
A lot of backstory detail made it hard to get into the actual book. The dialogue was the real killer though - so much of each conversation was awkwardly worded or just not what anyone would legitimately ever say. Couldn't focus on anything else and didn't finish the book.15
This book was just okay for me. I found myself skipping over a lot. I just couldn't get into it. There are just too many siblings and family to keep track of. I think it would have been a lot better if it focused on the two characters. But it goes back and forth between Sierra and Austin, then Shea and Shep. And there's other family drama thrown in there that I felt it took a lot of effort to keep up. So again it was just ok for me.35
From reading the book's description, you can't tell that this is a D/s story. That was disappointing. The idea of this story had the potential to be good, but it just didn't work. I found myself skipping around the book to try to find something interesting. I couldn't, and I won't be purchasing other books in this series.15
