Arwen Poole is a bar owner in a smallish ranch town. She is also the daughter of the town drunk. She doesn’t know that she’s beautiful either. She is very content with her life. At least, she was until the Dalton Gang moved back home.
Dax Campbell has been kind of a drifter since he left town at eighteen years old. He left town to escape his dysfunctional family and their expectations of him. He spent his teen years at the Dalton ranch with the family he always wanted. He made the Daltons and his friends his family.
He and his friends come home after the death of the Daltons to take care of the ranch that was willed to the three of them. He sees Arwen and their relationship starts off with a bang. Literally.
I liked this novel a lot. Liked all the characters and what they are going through. Dax and Arwen struggle to put a label on their relationship because of their pasts. I loved the emotions I felt while reading and the sex…hot and frequent.
