This is the first in the Bluegrass Brothers series, which includes USA Today best-selling titles Rising Storm, Acquiring Trouble, and Relentless Pursuit. The newest release, Secrets Collide, was just recently released. This is the follow-up series to the best-selling Bluegrass Series.
Cade Davies is an ex-Army Ranger, teacher, and the new head coach of the high school football team in Keeneston. He barely has time to adjust to all of the changes in his life before he runs into the school's fiery new guidance counselor and a new threat to the peaceful town of Keeneston.
DEA Agent Annie Blake was undercover to bust a major drug ring preying on high school athletes across the South. After her transfer from Miami to Kentucky, Annie looks to make her career by solving the biggest case the DEA has open. What Annie didn't count on was becoming the local gossip. Amid marriage bets placed by the entire town, a priest as a landlord, and a trio of thugs after her, Annie looks to Cade for help in bringing down the drug ring before anyone else is hurt. But can the unflappable Annie deal with the feelings that follow?

This was a good read. I liked Annie and Cade. Liked the storyline, too. I especially liked Lily Rae, Violet Fae and Daisy Mae, really funny names. Also liked Page and Cole, Miles, Marshall and Pierce.
Funniest names EVER for the deputies: Dinky and Noodle.
As far as sex goes? There was NONE! There was a little sexual tension but then it was fade-to-black.
I know a lot of readers like that but I don't happen to be one of those. Therefore, as much as I liked this book I can't see myself reading any others.
As to the narrator: He did a wonderful job with the females voices. I would definitely listen to him again.
Oh yeah, Cade and Annie make a great team. Easy going H.S. Football Coach. And a DEA agent with an attitude. Kathleen Brooks has been put at the top of my all favorite Author's list. Not only is she classy, her books all have good story lines. I have stated before, her books are not for the sex scene fans. But if one likes good story plots they are for you. Eric G. Dove does a great job narrating the stories. Can't wait until the next Davies brothers book comes out in audio.
I'm an avid reader of Romance and a true romantic at heart. I also read and review in other sub-genres as well. Happy reading!
I just love Kathleen Brooks writing style. She has me laughing at loud to the point tears are rolling down my cheeks. I always know I'm in for a treat when reading one of her books, and I love this series!
Eric G. Dove is one of my favorite narrators. He reads with a good amount of emotion, truly bringing the characters to life. He is perfect for Ms. Brooks' books.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys plenty of action and humor in their stories. You will find both in this great series. Happy reading!
Eric G. Dove does an excellent job with the narration of this book. I love how he can change his voice and do the difference accents.
Cade and Annie's story is full of suspense and comedy. I found myself laughing out loud at the commentary between the characters & the suspense kept me wondering what was going to happen next.
I've listened to hundreds - so all I can really say is right there at the top.
I love how Kenna & Will try to make out, but Lily Ray keeps coming out with her broom to sweep imaginary leaves off the porch.
I love the Rose sisters, Mo & Ahmed.
I'm huge into guys protecting girls - so, the part when they are at Mo's house for the party. Kenna's ex boyfriend shows up. Will, Mo & Ahmed all kind of step up to the plate to try to figure out how to get her out of trouble.
This is one of the best series I've read. After the first three books, you can read the Bluegrass Brothers Series out of order & they are good. However, if you read them in order, they connect. (It spins off the first three books.) Eric Dove does an excellent job. He is one of my favorite narrators.
