Justice Weathers has his hands full with the ranch and his twin boys. A widower whose love life is pretty much non-existent and maybe that's for a reason. His family doesn't seem to have much luck with happily-ever-after.
He's not looking for love. Heck, he runs from it.
He might have a bit of running to do. Someone's on her way to Cotton Creek and when she gets there she's gonna stir up a whole lot of feelings he's spent the last three years trying to forget.
Yeah, that bit about nothing ever happening in Cotton Creek? So wrong.

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. The story is well written in a series for more backstory of other characters, or as a stand-alone. I enjoyed the twists and turns, mystery/suspense content and characters and their world so much that I purchased/pre-ordered the 5 & 6th ebooks in the series and can't wait for the same narrator to perform the correlating audiobooks. Each story has a pinch of supernatural elements that brings a unique touch to these romantic cowboy stories. There are cross-over characters from other series that I am now interested in reading/listening to their stories for more insight to their back stories. The stories are well written and the narrator did an awesome job bringing the characters and stories to life. I highly recommend this series and encourage looking into the other series by this author.
Well J.S Bennett, he had a brilliant story to work with and he just made it so entertaining to listen and enjoy
The storylines just get better, I love the difference they incorporate to other westerns. I`m not going to give it away but you will all thoroughly enjoy this series. And no, you don`t need to read them all as they are standalone.
Everything, J.S Bennett is an all rounder as far as I`m concerned I enjoyed his whole performance.
I don`t like this question because I can never provide a tag that will be worthy.
I have the whole series I can`t wait to listen to the rest of them.
This book was given to me by the narrator and I`m voluntarily offering my review.
book 2 of series was a very good read. loved JD and the family. author brought in characters from prior book which was nice to see. liked conflict but felt like the curse was sort of dropped. still loved story and moving on to book 3.
Though I liked this book, I must admit that a couple aspects of the book bothered me: #1 - the hero (JD/Dylan) choking the heroine (Jo/Jolene), and #2 - JD/Dyaln cheating on his wife with Jolene on the night his wife kills herself. Honestly, if I were Jolene, there is no way I could end up with JD after knowing that he cheated on his wife (this is a fact that he didn't tell her at the time), and especially not if he put his hands on me in such a violent and cruel way. that being said, despite the way I feel, but I'm usually able to suspend my beliefs/feelings for a well-written book. I've enjoyed all the books I have read in this series (four so far), and this book is no exception. I think it is well-written and filled with interesting characters. And though I couldn't relate to the romance this time, it was still entertaining. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book narrated by J. Scott Bennett. I really love his narrations, and I probably spend more time on him in my reviews than any other narrator. He is really great and just brings the story to life. He gives each character a unique voice, and handles both male and female voices really well so that they don't sound campy. This has earned him the #1 narrator spot in my mind. Overall, if you can get past the two issues I listed earlier in the review, I think you will enjoy this book if you're a fan of western romance.
This is the second book in the series, and it seemed better thought out than the first. There is more depth to the characters and the storyline is most enjoyable! It has romance, cowboys, mystery, cowboys, humor, and did I mention cowboys? What more could a girl ask for? I would like to have a little more background info, but all in all, it was really good. It is a stand alone story without any hated cliffhangers. This is set in the same town as the first, so we get to hear from old friends we met there. Narration is excellent, perfect cowboy drawl! I received this book free or at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
I inadvertently accepted this book in exchange for my review, not realizing that it was the second book in Honky-Tonk Angels. I do not care for PNR. So, ghosts, talking to dead people, etc. are a real stretch for me.
But since I agreed to listen, I did. I am so glad!
The very little paranormal involved, is a curse from generations back & some zoning out on occasion.
Thoroughly enjoyable and completely different than expected from my impression - and a bit confusing without book number one.
I was confused pretty easily with every characters name beginning with the letter J. I don't understand why authors do that, especially JD, Jolene, Justice, Jo, Joe…
With that being said, J. Scott Bennett did an excellent job with narration, once I sorted out who everyone was (Justice Weathers was the father of 2, 18-year-old twinsboys, for example) I was better able to follow along. Bennett gave a performance that was stellar.
If I have the opportunity to listen to the next book in the series, I will.
*I received this work in exchange for my review; good, bad or meh. I've written all 3 kinds.

I am a working woman in a man's world but it's ok because I really love being around men !! I've been happily married for 48 years!
Audio books are my favorite ! I am able to go about my daily tasks while listening to a great story. I don't seem to be able to find the time to simply read and when I do it makes me sleepy. Audio books are so exciting that I never get sleepy while listening.
This is book 2 of the series. I listened to book 1 and wanted more. I still want more ! The characters in this book are so real and alive to me. I feel as if I am part of the family and I want to hear more abut them. I love a good story with romance but without erotica. Romance is much more satisfying than details because I can use my own imagination !
The leading female character, Jo, is my favorite. J. Scott Bennett is amazing with his voice artistry. He presents Jo as a loving but sexy lady who knows what she wants. She is brave and strong and loves with a passion of a woman...not a young girl.
I wouldn't say I had an extreme reaction to this book but I definitely had a pleasant reaction. I was totally involved in Jo and Justice's lives and loved how they found each other again. There's nothing worse than unrequited love.
I was given this audio book in exchange for an honest review. I can't say enough good things about the author Ciana Stone's talent and J. Scott Bennett's magical and soothing voice. These books give me such joy. Thanks so much !
I usually prefer fantasies or mysteries, but occasionally I like a good romance. This book fit the bill! A reluctant girl and and reluctant guy... neither looking for love, but finding it in each other. The narrator's country accent was just perfect. Upon finishing this book, I immediately sought out the rest of the books in the series.

Really good listen. I liked the plot and enjoyed the story with all of the details used to set up and follow through.
The main character (Jo) was very likable and I really enjoyed following her through the story. She seemed to be an unwitting guardian angel who through trials and tribulations sets her world and the worlds of many others around her upright again. Pretty inspiring to go through it with her. The other characters were pretty well developed as well. Really thought Cotton Creek might be a good place to live, except for the gossiping Betties.
It was a little odd that such a turn of violence could/would happen not once, but twice. Felt a little out of place, and almost too much of a coincidence. But the explanations were plausible.
The narrator did an excellent job. The voices were good. The flow was good. Most of the time it was clear who was speaking and the inflection of emotion seemed to be well placed.
As for the romance part of it, this book is along the lines of a PG13. Nothing too graphic, and there really aren't too many curse words other than when the bad guy shows up. This book was focused mostly on the pangs of the heart rather than lusty sex scenes. I thought it worked well.
Overall, the characters seemed heartfelt and genuine, and very plausible to see them in real life. Very enjoyable story.
