Sometimes two wrongs can make a right...
Bad boy wrangler Archer Kane lives fast and loose. Words like responsibility and commitment send him running in the opposite direction. Until a wild Vegas weekend puts him on a collision course with Eden Bankcroft-Kew, a New York heiress running away from her blackmailing fiancé…the morning of her wedding.
Eden has never understood the big attraction to cowboys. Give her a guy in a tailored suit any day of the week. But now all she can think about is Mr. Rugged Handsome, six-feet of sinfully sexy country charm with a pair of green eyes that keeps her tossing and turning.
Archer might be the wrong guy for a woman like her, but she's not right in thinking he'll walk away without fighting for her heart. And maybe, just maybe, two wrongs can make a right.
Ever since I read Last First Kiss, I needed more Archer Kane in my life. When I read about him and later on Edie, I wanted those two to get together ASAP. I had no idea they had met quite that way so it was nice to have the author write that story, even before Last First Kiss happened. They had chemistry right from the start and I was so rooting for them!
Edie overheard her fiance talking shit behind her back to someone else. Apparently, he was only interested in the money. When she meets Archer, she’s captivated by him but brushes it off. Long story short, they end up on their way to Brightwater, where Edie is looking to stay and make it her new home. Reading about these two going back and forth was interesting and hot at the same time. You could cut the sexual tension with a knife! They obviously wanted each other but Edie was scared to take the plunge, which lead Archer a bit heartbroken. I mean, the only woman he has his eyes on and she rejects him. But he really wants Edie and he decides to give her all the time she needs to find herself and then make the decision. Edie has heard the rumors of Archer being the man-whore of the town and it bothers her at first but then, she decides to forget it. The past is the past and both are ready to start anew.
Archer grew a lot in this book. I found him to be a bit immature in the first book and not quite there. But in his own story, he grows out of it and tries to be more of a gentleman and even takes over a big responsibility given to him by Grandma Kane. Both her and Edie kept Archer on his toes for the better. He is so charmingly hot! His story as well as Edie’s were a great addition to this series.
This book was very flirty, with witty banter and a cute and hot romance.
