Goodreads: “For single mom Bobbie Jo Weston, finding a husband is not on her to-do list. She’s focused on turning a run-down chicken farm into a Bed & Breakfast. She agrees to let a friend’s nephew stay with her in exchange for his handyman skills, but she wasn’t counting on the super sexy Seth Landry being that guy.
Seth has a special skill-set, all right, but it has nothing to do with hammering nails. As a retired member of The Resistance—an elite group of ex-military soldiers—his dark, unsettling past haunts him. He needs a place to lay low, and an out-of-the-way B&B is nothing short of perfect. The blonde beauty doesn’t trust men, and he doesn’t plan on sticking around long enough to change her mind.
The closer they get, the more they can’t seem to keep their hands off each other. And while Bobbie holds on to her fear of watching another man walk out of their lives, Seth’s mere presence has put them all in jeopardy. The only way to ever be free of his dangerous past is for him to accept one last mission…”
If you are in the mood for small town romances look no further than the Tangled in Texas Series. I very much enjoyed the two previous installments, but this Bobbie Jo’s story needed to be told and unfolded beautifully. This novel can be read as a complete standalone, but some of the characters featured got together in Rules of Protection and Playing with Fire. Both were also amazing, so I recommend marathoning all three.
- Characters: Bobbie Jo Weston and Seth Landry: My perceptions of Bobbie Jo came from previous character’s POVs in the other books and I was not in love with her by any means. Now that I’ve been in her head I absolutely adore her. Seth is Native American and stands out from the boys of the previous novels. Seth was a great male love interest.
- World/Setting: Liberty, Texas: Small town is too big to describe Liberty, Texas. I loved the setting as it was introduced in the previous novel, from the farmland to the pond. This story is spent in Bobbie Jo’s home which is being renovated into a B&B and that is one setting trope I always eat up.
- Pacing: Really good pacing. I never felt like it dragged. At my reading speed, I finished it in a day or two. It was a similar speed for the other ones so they would be a great long weekend marathon.
- Romance (yay or nay?): The romance was wonderful. Bobbie Jo is one of those characters you read about that really deserves strong devotion from their love interest. Seth delivered on this and then some. The entire series played with the idea that love requires sacrifice, Alison Bliss explored this concept so well in all of the Tangled in Texas novels.
So of course Law of Attraction clocks in at…
