‘This time, when I knew the journey was coming to an end, I was happy to be going home.’
Presley is a free spirit. She moved from the big city to help her grandmother run her book and post store in the small town of Fawn Hills. After her grandmother’s dog eats one of her unmentionables, Presley meets the town hero and resident nice guy, Keaton Nash. Keaton is a veterinarian who followed in his father’s footsteps and is now trying to keep up with being the town hero without his father there. As the two get to know each other Presley sees that the perfect façade that Keaton puts forward is just that, a façade and behind that façade is a man that has struggles and problems just like everyone else. Can Presley put down roots and be happy in the small town? Or will she go back to the city and run away from the one man she could truly love?
I really enjoyed this book. I appreciate the journey that the characters went on, but I also appreciate that we get so much from the secondary characters in this book. So much so that I can’t wait for more Nash brothers!! These two were so relatable because just like regular people who first meet up and are trying to decide if they can date, they said the wrong things. There was some rejection, which is again, relatable. All in all, this was a fantastic book that left me wanting more from all of Keaton’s brothers!

Presley McDaniel lives her life from moment to moment.
Making permanent decisions means obligation, and that would force her to stop being the family disappointment. Waitress, fitness instructor, dog walker … you name the hourly job and she’s probably held the position.
But when her grandmother can no longer run her book shop in Fawn Hill, a town so small it barely has its own zip code, Presley steps up to help.
The move from bustling city to green pastures may be exactly what she needs to sort out her life. But she didn’t ask for that happy ending to include a gorgeous veterinarian with an all-American smile and a penchant for snuggling puppies. The good doctor is reliable, responsible, and just the kind of man Presley has always avoided.
Love and commitment are predictable.
So why, the moment she lays eyes on him, are they all she wants?
Keaton Nash has never questioned his steady path.
His brothers may tease him about settling into his father’s passed-down role of small town veterinarian, but Keaton has never minded his rural roots. And after tragedy struck two years ago, he has a duty as the eldest Nash man to look after his family.
What he doesn’t need is the sexy, flighty stranger who shows up in town and gets his broken heart beating again. Presley McDaniel is a distraction, a red-headed temptation that is the definition of a bad idea.
He’s barely recovered from the love who left him to chase bigger dreams, and this woman is bound to do the same.
Except for the first time ever, he wants to abandon stability.
She makes him want to be reckless.
