*Each Bishop Brothers novel is an interconnected standalone*
Alex Bishop is your typical cowboy.
Charming, sexy, and wears a panty-melting smirk.
Working on the ranch helped build his solid eight-pack and smoking body. He’s every girl’s wet fantasy and he knows it too. Alex doesn’t follow the rules of your typical playboy bachelor. After wining and dining his dates and giving them the best night of their lives, he always sends flowers and calls the next day—even if it’s to say, let’s just be friends. His mama taught him manners after all and his southern blood knows how to be a gentleman. Still, that isn’t enough to tame the wildest of the Bishop brothers.
River Lancaster has finally met the man of her dreams. Too bad after six months of romantic bliss, she finds out he’s married. With a broken heart and blind rage, she books herself a ticket to Key West, Florida. Tired of cheaters and liars, she’s set on escaping to forget he ever existed. Who needs a man when there’s an all-you-can-drink margarita bar, anyway? That’s what she tells herself until she bumps into the right guy who can make all those bad memories disappear.
Even if it’s only temporarily.
Two weeks on the beach is what they both need. No strings attached, no expectations, no broken hearts. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll change the entire course of their lives in just nine short months.
**A complete standalone contemporary romance with a little southern drama**
This was so good! I love Alex and River so much. Thanks to the authors for providing me a copy in exchange for a honest review. I’m giving this 5 out of 5 stars.
Without being spoilery, the book takes place in beautiful locations. Texas, Key West, and yes…even Wisconsin. Woot woot! River was such an easy character to connect with for me; I felt like we could have easily been friends in real life. Natalie kind of drove me a little nuts, but I know she has a good heart. And Adam was sweet, even though we don’t see that much of him.
Now onto Alex, his brothers, and Dylan. Whoa cowboys! These gentlemen sound amazing, especially Alex. I’m not usually into cowboys, but sign me up if they’re like these fictional characters. Can I add them all to my book boyfriends list? 😉
I found myself laughing and smiling quite a bit while reading this. I recommend reading the Checkmate Duets first, if you can. I’ve read the first four books, but I spoiled myself for some things that are probably in the last two. Oh well, reading an early copy of this was worth it!
There were some typos, but nothing major…and they might even be gone come the final copy. I listened to the audiobooks for the duets, so I can’t wait to see what the narrator(s) sound like for this series, especially with that sexy Southern drawl. *fans self* That ending makes me want the next book ASAP! I’m so excited to see another Bishop boy fall in love.
Overall this was fantastic. The pacing was good, the characters were amazing, and I just loved the chemistry between this Southerner and Northerner pair. Go get yourself a copy ASAP!
