Series: A Wrangler’s Creek Novel (Book 1)
Mass Market Paperback: 384 pages Publisher: HQN Books (December 27, 2016)
The Granger siblings thought they’d left their ranching days behind, until fate sends them home to Wrangler’s Creek, Texas—and into the passionate arms of those they’d least expect…
It’s some run of bad luck when Sophie Granger loses her business and gets left at the altar all in one day. Desperate to not appear jilted, Sophie begs Clay McKinnon, Wrangler’s Creek’s smoking-hot police chief, to pretend they’re having an affair. But Clay refuses, leaving Sophie to retreat to the family ranch to lick her wounds.
Hoping to leave his disreputable past behind, Clay moved to Wrangler’s Creek for a fresh start. But that looks unlikely when Sophie’s ex-fiancé shows up married to Clay’s impulsive kid sister. Overcome, Sophie resuggests the affair—but this time for real. Clay is hesitant. City-girl Sophie isn’t usually his type. But he can’t deny the desire she elicits—or his yearning to have her plant her cowboy roots for good.
Runaway bride. It's basically how this story starts, but she's running away from an insensitive groom who changes his mind at the last minute. Then, she runs to Clay, hoping he'll help her save face. Ultimately, she moves forward on her own, but she keeps getting drawn back to Clay.
Through a series of crazy events, their lives become more and more intertwined, and their attraction builds.
While the heat between Clay and Sophie was palpable, and I was rooting for them to get together, I did not like how they dealt with everything else in their lives, especially other family members and their meddling. If the story could've focused more exclusively on the couple, I would have been more invested.
If you enjoy reading a hot couple, give Those Texas Nights a chance.
