This book is funny as well as sexy. The things Avery does to be the type of woman Issac could love can't help but make you laugh. For a Dom Issac is not very confident in his own worth. 
This is part of a series, while you can read it as a stand alone it would be better to read in order so as not to spoil the others that you willwant to read.

#11 Cowboys Never Fold.

The nearer it gets to opening time the more trouble they get. Both Kendra and Wade are hiding something,  will everything be revealed in the end? 
A fun read that had me giggling as I pictured what ways happening.  Our hero is seriously sexy. Our heroine fiercely independent and brave,  with a heart of solid gold. 
Poker Flats could make an interesting series,  the secondary characters are good enough for their own stories.

A sexy and often emotional story.
