Wrangling His Best Friend's Sister by Leslie North
This is an amusing, romantic and emotional story. Ava moved back home after first losing her husband, and then her job. She needs out of her parents house, and working for her brother's best friend on his ranch would solve that problem. Bran isn't keen to hire her, she's a woman and the mother of a toddler, but he is sympathetic, so he finally agrees and moves Ava and her son, Cam, onto the ranch, and into his house. Ava always had a crush on Bran but there was never anything between them, and now she sees a strong and sexy cowboy. Bran can't stop thinking about how hot Ava grew up to be, and he drives himself crazy by wanting her, but needing to keep his hands off his best friend's little sister, the one he swore to never touch. Unfortunately for Bran, the chemistry between the two of them is irresistible, and they give in to it. But Bran feels guilty. Ava was also looking into some money of his that is missing, and he doesn't like the way Ava scolds him for the way he runs his ranch. So plenty of issues, consciences and self doubt are what they have to wade through. The end of the story is so sweet and emotional it made me cry.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
