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.
This was a sweet story of two men, who don’ really know each other, who suddenly become fathers together. Cash and Brad are completely different, but need to work together to make the kids lives better without their parents. They both have some things they continue to dig their heels in on, but when their disagreement becomes physical they finally open their eyes and really get a look at each other.
Cash and Brad both want what is best for the kids and have to learn to work together. We get to connect to the characters through their eyes. I love seeing their love for their nieces and nephews and how much they are willing to give for them. Their relationship is a big part of what helps them make decisions and move their own and the kids’ lives forward. It was just what I expected from a sweet Sean Michael book.
Cover art by Bree Archer is wonderful connecting us with the characters.
