I received a copy of this book from netgalley.com for my honest opinion and review.
This is the third installment in the latest group of the Montana Creeds series by Linda Lael Miller. Luckily for me Linda Lael Miller loves to write about cowboys and i love to read about them. This contemporary cowboy romance has just what you need if you crave a sexy Creed, some serious and humorous moments with a happy ending. All cowboy stories should have one of those right? Brody is one of twin brothers who were estranged from each other over the course of the past 10 years. In Creed's Honor which came out yesterday in stores and online we got Connor's story and in that one Brody and Connor got past their difference and started mending their relationship. The Creed Legacy due out June 28th is Brody's story finally. We got all these hints in the first two books as to what happened in Brody's past. Now he has to confront those painful memories if he wants a relationship with Carolyn. Carolyn has her own demons to deal with from her past if she is ever going to trust anyone again with her heart.
Rough-and-tumble rodeo cowboy Brody Creed likes life on the move. Until a chance encounter with his long-estranged twin brother brings him “home,” for the first time in years. Suddenly Brody is in Creed territory—a rootless bad boy among family with deep ties to the land and each other. He’s half-ready to bolt when he meets a copper-haired beauty more restless than he is.
Carolyn Simmons is living a temporary life in Lonesome Bend, waiting to light out for the glamour of a metropolis. Then she falls for gorgeous Brody Creed, the opposite of everything she wants. But taming his wild heart might just become everything they both need…
The blurb is a little deceiving i think. Brody is back and building a house and barn on what used to be Tricia McCall's land. He swears he's there to stay now. Carolyn has been house sitting in and around Lonesome Bend for a long time and years ago she and Brody has a bit of a fling for a week or so when suddenly he disappeared only leaving a lame note and drunken phone call later. She had trusted Brody and trusting was not something she's ever done easily and he broke her heart. Brody has a secret though and that's why he ran because he felt he had to. They both have to find a way to let go of all those bad memories and be truthful with each other if they want to be together, There is a serious side to this book but plenty of hot and funny moments mixed in to balance it all out. The few things that annoyed me some was the talk of the skirt Carolyn was making. It was described several times but i kept getting a gaudy picture in my mind. Brody's reaction to it was funny cause no man would pay that much attention to a skirt. Talk of the skirt was overdone. After reading the latest three books in this series Brody is my favorite of the three. Kind of thought he was a jerk in the first one but i bet that was the intent in that one. lol To read more about this book and Linda Lael Miller other books please visit her website by clicking www.lindalaelmiller.com. I give The Creed Lagacy by author Linda Lael Miller 4 out of 5 Modokker Book Pick Stars. If i hadn't started it late at night this would've been on of those read in one sitting book for me.
