Larissa Morley is the newest owner of the Honky Tonk, a bar where people come to relax, dance, and listen to good ole country music. Larissa has had a rough time of it, so settling into her new (fixer-upper) home and bar, she feels like she has come home. She takes no sass from anyone and gives as good as she gets.
Hank Wells has been investigating Larissa and really wants to get his hands on the Honky Tonk. He can't figure out why she won't sell when the price is so good. He figures he'll lay low and get to know her personally and maybe then he can convince her.
But one look at the handsome cowboy and Larissa feels her heart dive to her knees. She wants a real cowboy to knock her socks off, but her friends tell her Hank is a fake. Hank finds himself falling hard for Larissa and tries to back off, but he can't help himself.
When secrets begin to reveal themselves, it may be more than a give a damn busted, but some hearts. It's gonna take some passion, sweet words, and a whole lot more if these two want a future together.
Carolyn Brown's Honky Tonk series is such a winner! I love cowboys and country music, and each book just gets better. It's like revisiting an old friend when I open the pages. Her characters are strong-willed, opinionated, and full of grit and sass. I know it's a winner when I'm laughing and crying and singing along as I go along. I can't wait for the next one in the series!!
