Patience McKinnon has never even tried to live up to her unfortunate name. Her sisters would gladly point out that she’s impetuous, fickle, and stubborn to a fault. History has taught her that she’s the only one, besides those crazy sisters, that has her best interests at heart…and she’s not about to let down her guard and let herself get hurt. She did that once…and that was more than enough. Next time, she’s fairly certain that she’d rather just shoot first and ask questions later, thank you very much!
Enter Abel Turner. The suave town attorney has had Patience McKinnon in his sights for years. Sure, he strayed along the way, but he’s always come back to the beautiful blonde bartender that fills his dreams and drives him crazy at the same time. After all, he owes her…and he plans to rectify the bad impression he made in the past with a humdinger of a sensual night.
But that one night may just change both of their worlds…forever. Will Patience overcome her insecurities? And will Abel ever convince her to trust him again?
This book was one that put me through a ton of different emotions – I laughed out loud at times, and was crying at other times. O’Rourke once again put me through the ringer with this book.
I do want to say, that you can read this book as a standalone. But, if you have read the other books in the series, there’s not an overload of information that’s repeated.
Patience was once again amazing — I swear I want to be like her when I grow up. And Abel was of course just equally amazing. I have come to love the way that O’Rourke writes such great characters, both male and female. Patience and Abel while they seemed like they were complete opposites, were so much alike and you couldn’t really tell that until you got to know the both of them. Which doesn’t really happen in the previous books.
O’Rourke was able to keep the drama and action that you come to expect with their books in this one as well. As with anything that involves Patience, there’s a fair bit of action that happens in this one.
We were also able to catch up on the rest of the sisters, and find out what is going on with them. Which I do love because they are so important to each other, you can’t help but wonder what is going on with them.
Overall, I’m once again blown away with O’Rourke and I can’t wait for Honor’s story next! (Please!)
