My Review:I knew who was going to get together right a way. Why? Because I already read the third book. Ha-Ha. So I started this book knowing the two that are in love in the beginning actually become sister/brother in-laws, and I still liked it. I cried when Hardy left,laughed when Liberty mad friends with Churchill and at times was mad at Gage too. It was a hot, sexy read but at the same time tender. Also, most of these 'romantic' books for women are not very true to life; yeah 'they could happen', but when does that really happen???? Well in this book, everything is sooooooooooo ture to life. From the trailer-parks to the fu-fu side of Texas to money issues and raising children to the rich and famous, it all rang true in Lisa Kleypas' unique voice. I suggest reading this first Blue Eyed Devil (who could that be?!lol) , and then Smooth Talking Stranger. I promise this tangy-sweet Texan love triangle will satisfy you completely.
Exert: "The sunset finished with a long crack of light rimming the horizon, as if the sky were a big door and God was taking one last peak. Good night, Welcome, I thought, and went into the trailer." - 14 (I know it isn't very good, but I couldn't decide so I just randomly opened!)
