Who knows why some books are loved by some listeners yet scorned by others, some of us connect with the storyline while others disconnect and the narration is either music to our ears or nails over a chalkboard. Well sadly this book, for me, was the latter option in each case. I enjoyed the previous two books in this Getaway series but not so much this one.. probably because I felt there was no real build-up to the romance as Lane the hero and Brynn the heroine already loved each other.. they just hadn’t declared their feelings.. which they rectified early into the story.
Brynn and Lane were childhood friends.. Brynn had a terrible childhood and Lane/school manwhore tried to do the right thing for her but for the wrong reasons. She was hurt by him, he was hurt by her rejection. Fast forward years.. years living under the same roof.. years fuelling undeclared attraction.. years where partners would come and go. But, when Brynn’s latest boyfriend went down on one knee to propose, it was too much for Lane to take and, before he heard the expected “yes”, he walked away.. from Brynn and from the family’s beloved Ranch. And it was left up to Brynn to bring him back.. but first they had to forgive each other, confess to their feelings and agree to start over.. then the book, their emotional journey and their road trip from Hell could begin.. because they rescue an abused damaged teen, get into danger and uncover evil.
Worth a credit? This dual POV story was (shrug) ok.. but somewhere along the way I failed to connect, lost interest and ended up speeding it up to get to the end. Was it the narration, the early declared feelings, the characters, the meh passion, the plot or just me?.. well who knows.. but whatever the reason, my answer to the question is unfortunately and sadly NO. However, you may really like or even love it.

Loved Lane and Brynn's book! Long time friends to lovers story with a sexy cowboy - I couldn't ask for anything more! Narration was really well done and perfect for these characters.
