Boone Price and his brothers know oil; at least, the dirty, backbreaking side of working an oil rig. But when their scrubby, worthless hunting land turns out to be sitting on top of one of the biggest oil wells in North America, they go from the rig to the boardroom and end up billionaires practically overnight. Now with enough money to do whatever he wants, Boone is developing a taste for fine things. And the finest thing he's ever seen is Ivy Smithfield, local realtor. Boone's determined to win her affection and show the world that he's more than just a dirty fool with a bit of money. Ivy's classy and beautiful - she'll make the perfect trophy wife. The fact that she's sexy and funny is just a bonus. There's one tiny problem - Ivy's as dirt poor as Boone was. Her carefully crafted veneer of luxury? All an act to promote her business. What's Boone going to do when he finds out the woman he's falling for is, well, in his league? Contains mature themes.

Rags to riches - Boone and his brothers have hit it big after striking oil on their land and Boone is continuing to use divining rods to find more oil at other sites the brothers own. They are down-to-earth rednecks who've always lived in a trailer.. but now they can afford one each. Boone now wants the finer things in life, saw the picture of beautiful classy Ivy from a flyer promoting the Real Estate Agents that she works for, and he thought what a perfect lady.. marrying her would give him a Trophy wife and he'd gain the respect that he now feels he deserves. So he seeks her out, sweetly asks her to pick out some mansions she likes and help him choose their dream house.. and then he goes about wooing his bride-to-be.
Ivy works hard as a Realtor, she's also raising her younger sister, they'd had terrible parents (their Dad was in prison), they were dirt poor and they lived in a trailer. And when Boone, the handsome, clever, charismatic bearded Billionaire, sought her out and shared his naive plans for their blissful future life together - including exactly why he chose her above everyone else, Ivy thought he was joking.. then she was very flattered, very very tempted and very very very fearful. However, first she tried but failed to make Boone see sense - so she thought of the commission money and kept her dirt poor seedy background a secret. Boone's easygoing temperament, his charming steady persistence, his rugged good looks and his sex appeal soon had Ivy defenceless, giving up her V card and falling hard for her compelling, generous, thoughtful and caring admirer. But secrets, as we all know, will eventually be found out.. and unsuspecting Boone didn't take Ivy's news well and it wasn't just his plans that would go up in smoke!!
Boone's no fool.. he's a loveable huggable simple redneck with a Texas drawl who charms the pants off Ivy and I thought he was a very refreshing character.. but beware if you treat him or his woman badly coz his alpha side comes out and his revenge is swift, merciless and hot. However, I didn't much like the way Ivy kept the truth from him - but I do understand why she did it.. and anyway it's all part of the grand scheme of the plot. There's low drama, some angst, humor, heat, long sex scenes, minimal secondary characters, secrets that'll go boom and a romance that'll tease and be tested until there's a HEA at the end of a sweet Epilogue. Dual POV's and good narration. Boone reminds me more of a laid-back Woody Harrelson than simple-minded Forrest Gump.
Worth a credit? Yes.. good storybuilding, interesting characters and memorable narration made this an easygoing and enjoyable listen - and now I can't wait for brothers Clay, Gage, Knox and Seth to get their own stories.
As a native Texan married to my very own West Texas redneck I take exception to way the male character was presented. I've been all over TX and through the south and none of us talk like that. I really hope this is corrected before the rest of the series is recorded or I'll have to skip the audiobooks because it's just too painful to listen.
