I absolutely love a good cowboy romance and Leah Braemel knows how to write them. This story is not only first loves coming back together but a story of discovery, deception and hidden secrets. There are unexpected twists and turns which had me guessing where the story was going and whereas it didn’t always go the way I thought it would, it always was the best way to go. The characters were absolutely perfect complete with imperfections and quirks. After all, no one is perfect. The ranching scenes made sense, even for someone who hasn’t been on a ranch. And, the romance couldn’t have been better. From teenage first love to adult attraction that doesn’t make sense, it came together with passion and emotion. This is the first book of a new trilogy and I can’t wait to read more. The Grady family is complex and interesting. Who wouldn’t want to read about a sexy cowboy, much less 3?
Allie really didn’t want to work this claim but her boss is giving her no choice. Years ago, Allie had been thrown off the Grady family ranch after someone video taped her with Ben Grady and his best friend Logan. She has no desire to see Ben ever again and relive those moments. Ben has no idea who is pretending to be a secret child of his grandfather’s and is selling off half the family ranch. He has no choice but to make a claim through his title company. Unfortunately, that means bringing Allie back into his life. He hasn’t seen her since his grandfather fired her father for stealing. He has no idea why she didn’t respond back to his letters and emails. Neither expects or wants the attraction they both feel. Can they stay apart or will the attraction be more than either can ignore?
Book one of The Grady Legacy
Losing his father was hard enough, but now Ben Grady must face the fact that he and his brother may not be sole owners of their beloved ranch. To protect his family's legacy, he's forced to rely on the legal prowess of the woman who stars in his erotic fantasies: Allie O'Keefe. Ben's never forgotten the illicit encounter they shared fifteen years ago—or forgiven himself for letting her go.
Allie thought she'd moved beyond the scandal that cost her Ben in the past. But working so closely with the seductive rancher arouses the wild child within the cautious woman she's become. Though she tries to keep business and pleasure separate, Allie soon gives in to temptation, and discovers Ben's sensual skills surpass even her X-rated memories…
Allie has every intention of leaving Bull's Hollow forever after her investigation is complete. But there are a few complications. Not the least of which is that while saving the ranch, Allie's lost her heart.
