Cash McCord’s life is pretty much perfect. He owns the family ranch, loves his work, and invites the occasional cowboy into his bed. But everything is turned upside down when his brother Jack and Jack’s wife Val are killed in a car crash, leaving behind six kids.
Cash is made guardian of the children, along with Val’s brother, Brad Rafferty—a man who couldn’t be more different from Cash if he tried. A Yankee, Brad is a video-game developer who works twelve-to-fourteen-hour days at his desk. They lock horns as soon as they set eyes on each other. Neither man is happy to have the other around, but neither is willing to give up custody of his nieces and nephews.
It’s up to these two polar opposites to keep the kids together and give them a family again. But first they’ll have to keep from killing each other.
Whenever I read a Sean Michael book I know there is going to be a lot of sex in it. Funny thing is when I read the blurb for this one I wasn’t sure how that was going to possible. When Cash’s brother and Brad’s sister are both killed in a car accident and their six kids are now the responsibility of these two guys… I thought I was in for a seriously angsty book.
This book was surprisingly angst-free. I’m trying to figure out if that’s a good thing or not actually lol. All six kids pretty much bounce right back from the death of their parents. Brad and Cash fall in lust with each other on day 3. So, I will say on the believability and probability scale I’d say it’s not very high.
Cash and Brad are very hot together and the things Cash says will have you burst into flames. As usual Sean has written sex in the most primal way. Never a question there. I just felt that emotion wise it fell flat. I get it was a novella so there wasn’t a lot of room for it but for the topic I may have opted for full length and really let the reader mourn Jack and Val with Brad, Cash, and the kids. I felt like I needed that, but the grieving was constantly brushed off. When Ben expresses sadness and Cash tells him to "Cowboy Up", my heart broke for Ben. I felt he needed to be sad.
It was hot and steamy and of course that's always a good reason to read a book. Emotion for the situation was very frustrating for me.
