The McLendon Twins are all grown up and – oh my gawd – are they ever a double handful! The perfect combination of reckless and charming, the golden boys of Grassland have become country music gods. Carson is the life of the party. Connor loves their music, but he’s had it with Carson’s antics and life on the road. He’s ready to call it quits when their beloved Papa falls ill and they are called home to their family ranch on Falcon Ridge; a place that holds both their hearts and the painful secret that changed their lives forever.
Occupational Therapist Breezy Youngblood once loved Connor and Carson to the moon and back. She was a mere girl when her world was shattered and she was forced to leave Grassland with only her broken heart. When she’s asked to return to help the McLendon patriarch recover, she’s forced to face the tragedy that destroyed her dreams of ever calling Falcon Ridge her home. Will Connor and Carson embrace the second chance they’ve been given, or turn their backs on the one person who can make them whole again?
Excuse me while I get this out of my system, OMG I absolutely love every book in this series. This family is so inviting to the reader, there is no way to not fall in love with each and every one of them. Our Rock Star Cowboys in this one is Carson (Car) and Connor (Con), the twins we grew to love earlier in the series. Now on the road, playing their music and soaking in the fame, Carson is about to wreck it all with his impulsive ways. One night, that was all it took for Car and Con’s career to come to the ledge of disaster, their only choice was to go back home and hide from the press till they figured out if they even had a future together on the stage.
Breezy escaped from her hometown as fast as she could. Her home was terrible, frightening and after a tragic accident, empty. The only good memories she had was watching Car and Con as little boys with their family. The picnics she spied on, the swimming in the river, the laughter shared among their parents and siblings, kept her dreams alive, but in one night it was all shattered and she was forced to leave in disgrace. Now her career as an Occupational Therapist has led her back to Falcon Ridge to help the boy’s grandfather recover, but she is confronted with images of the hometown rock stars in every corner of the town. She prays she will be able to stand up to the memories and backlash that she doesn’t deserve, do her job and repay the family for the only pieces of kindness she experienced as a little girl.
The dynamics of how their stories intersect is heart wrenching and while I adore Car and Con, I wanted to bang Carson’s head against the wall a few times. He let his anger blind him to the true love Breezy and Con was offering him. The McClendon family have never shown anything but love and acceptance so you can imagine their dismay over his behavior toward Breezy, until the truth came out about that one night that began his path into the dark abyss.
This series is a MUST read, I adore very book, every character and every plot. It is more than a story, it is an invitation to go to Falcon Ridge and find your peace in the world of chaos, to feel the love and acceptance this family aims to give every reader.
