Four years ago, Mack Schwartz made a decision that would alter the course of his life. Little did he know that walking away from the man he loved was only the beginning of a downward spiral. Since then, he’s become nothing more than a puppet, his son Daniel at the helm, turning Mack’s life not only upside down but inside out.
Against his better judgment, Jeff Endsley didn’t put up a fight when Mack walked away, although his absence left a gaping hole in Jeff’s life. Now that Daniel has convinced Mack to sell Moonshiners and leave Coyote Ridge behind, Jeff isn’t sitting back and letting him make the decisions anymore.
Short and sweet, that’s the best way to describe this book. Let’s add in scorching hot to make it a bit more accurate. I’ve been salivating for this story ever since reading the bits about Mack and Jeff in A Coyote Ridge Christmas. They are just so good together.
The story of how Mack and Jeff are being kept apart is heartbreaking. As a parent I can understand Mack’s need to make his child happy, but his son Daniel just goes to far and gets downright nasty. Of course, good ole Travis Walker cannot keep his nose out of other people’s business, especially when it’s someone he cares about. But what is Daniel’s reason for treating his father with so much disrespect and disdain?
I felt I knew where this story was going, and I did to a certain extent. But Daniel’s reasoning goes deeper than I expected. While I feel for Daniel and his twisted view of things, I still couldn’t fully forgive how he twisted Mack into knots and almost destroyed a beautiful couple for good.
This story is way shorter than I’m used to with this author, but she still managed to fit in all of the heat, love, and humor that I’m used to in her other books. Truth be told, I love everything this author writes.
