Description from Amazon:
A broken truck, a broken career, and a breakup heard around the world land superstar John Tennessee McCord in Hellcat Canyon. Legend has it that hearts come in two colors there: gold or black. And that you can find whatever you’re looking for, whether it’s love . . . or trouble. JT may have found both in waitress Britt Langley.
His looks might cause whiplash and weak knees, but Britt sees past JT’s rough edge and sexy drawl to a person a lot like her: in need of the kind of comfort best given hot and quick, with clothes off and the lights out.
Her wit is sharp but her eyes and heart—not to mention the rest of her—are soft, and JT is falling hard. But Britt has a secret as dark as the hills, and JT’s past is poised to invade their present. It’s up to the people of Hellcat Canyon to help make sure their future includes a happily ever after .
This book has everything I want in a Contemporary Romance; witty banter, realistic dialog, superbly nuanced characters, laugh out loud moments and sizzling sexual tension. The H/h are so well drawn that they become real people who we get to know and care about. If you have ever lived in a small town then the Misty Cat Cavern restaurant, where side character, Glenn, makes the best burgers, will be immediately recognizable. Shy Glory and Sheriff Eli will have their romance in the next book in the series. There is some stubbornness by Britt that tears apart J.T.’s heart and threatens their romance. I guarantee you will fall in love with this book and probably J.T. will be your forever book boyfriend.
This is not a recent book but it has been recently on sale at Amazon, the next two in the series are also on sale. I am a huge fan of this author’s Historical Romance, Pennyroyal Green Series and was reluctant to jump ship into this Contemporary Romance genre but now I’m hooked on this Hellcat Canyon Series and cannot wait to read the rest of the books. Lucky for us, there are 3 books already published with another coming very soon. These prices may not last long.
