Bristol Newton has spent the past couple of years doing her best to keep her distance from Kaden and Keegan Walker. Up to this point, avoiding the sexy twins hasn’t been as easy as she hoped it would be. Thankfully, she has a plan: sign them up for the Fall Festival’s auction and let some lucky lady win a date with them. After all, it’s for a good cause. Plus, it ensures she doesn’t get pulled under their spell.

She should’ve known even that wouldn’t be easy. When Kaden and Keegan have questions, Bristol reluctantly agrees to dinner to explain the details. That was her first mistake. The second resulted in the hottest night of her entire life with the two sexiest men she’d ever met.

A night that would change all their lives in ways they never expected. 

Nicole Edwards is a pro at writing unconventional relationships in a thoughtful and engaging way. She’s one of my very favorite authors and I’ve learned to trust her. That being said, I will admit there was a bit of trepidation going into this one. As much as I trust this author, there was still a piece of me that was unsure of if I’d be able to go all in with this trio. While I adore most of the trios in this author’s repertoire of stories, the ultimate end relationship in those works do not end up with the related parties together. Sure, we’ve had some ménage situations with siblings in the past. But that was purely sexual and not how the characters ended up with their HEA. In this case, I knew these twin brothers were going to end up with one woman. Not for a time or for some fun, but forever. I was right not to worry, I fell for this trio hook, line, and sinker.

Bristol truly is the perfect woman for Keegan and Kaden. It never once crossed her mind that she could have one of the brothers without the other. Not in a sexual or emotional way. And she didn’t seem to want one without the other, either. Learning more about their past relationships made it crystal clear that Bristol was the type of woman they needed. If only they could believe she really wants them both equally, and that she could listen to her heart instead of her fears.

Going into this book, I wasn’t quite sure if I’d be able to tell the twins apart. It was obvious in past books where we’ve seen peeks of the two that they have different personalities, but could that hold up through a whole novel? Fortunately, I had no problem knowing whose mind I was looking into. It was also a pleasure to learn that Bristol could always tell these men apart easily, something some of their family even had issues doing.

I always anticipate the next new book by this author. I also know that I have to have a chunk of time set aside for reading because I never want to put her books down once I start. A bonus in this book is getting to watch Travis work through his issues and find his way back to Gage and Kylie. There’s a lot more to that story going forward, but his part in this story (especially with Gage) was very touching.

5 stars

*This book is listed as #9 on Goodreads and on Amazon, but there’s no #8. I’m thinking it’s because A Coyote Ridge Christmas was listed as #6.5 in some places but #7 in others.
