Publisher's Summary

More often than not, Clint Mason has his foot firmly wedged in his mouth, which tends to get him in plenty of hot water with the ladies. Although his laid back good ole' Southern charm does not fly far with the female population of Cedar Tree, the big burly contractor hides his dark side well.
The only one Beth Franklin allows herself to rely on is Beth, and so far that has served her well. Just when her son disappears after dropping his little guy off on her doorstep, her life seems to spiral out of control. For the first time ever, fearing for his safety, the fiercely independent waitress is forced to be on the receiving end of a helping hand.
That's not easy for her, especially since the shovel-sized hand belongs to a man whose approach has run hot and cold the last year, leaving her feeling off balance. With a steady and commanding force, he exposes her softer side, while doing everything he can to keep her and those close to her safe.

Upper Hand Hits All the Emotions

Upper Hand is one of my favorite Freya Barker books. Clint and Beth's story has a lot of suspense and action, but above all it's the emotions and love that shine through. Clint may be my favorite male character in the Cedar Tree series. He is a good man, but he cannot keep his foot out of his mouth to save his soul. And around Beth, he seems more apt to incite her anger than her passion. But when the passion between the couple ignites, it's explosive.
This audio narration hit the nail on the head as far as what these characters sounded like in my head when I read their story. The gruff, growly alpha that is Clint and the strong, snarky Beth make a heady combination. I can foresee me relistening to the this story again and again.
