Some small towns grow really good-looking men! This is the case with the four Chase brothers.
The homegrown hotties are on the wish list of every single woman in town and Maggie Wright is no exception. Maggie has finally had it with the men she's been dating but a spilled plate of chili cheese fries drops Shane Chase right into her lap. The sheriff is hot stuff but was burned by a former fiancée and is quite happy to play the field.
After Shane's skittishness sends him out the door, Maggie realizes that Kyle Chase has had his eye on her from the start. Now that Shane has messed up, Kyle has no intention of letting anything stop him from wooing her right into his bed. Now, despite Maggie's happiness and growing love for Kyle, a dark shadow threatens everything - she's got a stalker and he's not happy at all. In the end, Maggie will need her wits, strength, and the love of her man to get her out alive.

I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
I did like the family values depicted in the book.
I don't know.
I don't think a film should be made of this book.
It was a pleasant book. Not worth a buy ... but a credit if you want something mindless.
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
Since I have enjoyed some of Lauren Dane's other books, I decided to give this series a try and quickly got bored. The story seemed immature and the characters flat to me. Maybe this was one of her earlier novels...
I've read & listened to most of LD's stuff, this is a nice series and the first book is the best. I personally think she would have been better off to write 1 or 2 longer books with more secondary characters and story line.
In this book we meet all the primary characters for the series. Maggie is a high school history teacher with self esteem issues. She starts dating one brother who is an ass to her, but it's Kyle who wins her heart through his caring & gentle nature.
This series is set in the south and I have a weakness for romances set in the south. The narrator does a great job in this book and the next with the male voices. Not so much in books 3 & 4.
Don't waste a credit. Buy the kindle edition with whisper sync & then u get the audio book super cheap. I recommend u do that with the entire series. Overall an entertaining listen.
It's made my top 10 book list
Men of Steel: 4 Steel Brothers running a family tattoo shop. The story is funny, emotional, and totally hot!!!!
The Christmas with the Chase Family
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Okay, it wasn't a profound book. Personally, I would have loved to see the characters on a deeper level. But considering how short the book was, it was well planned and executed. I don't like short books as it doesn't seem like you "get into" the book and suddenly...oopps! It's over now. I liked the characters a lot though, and they were able to draw you in in a very short amount of time. I felt the dialogue was well written, despite how other reviewers felt. I REALLY enjoyed how realistic it was. Too many romance novels have everything being perfect. Heroine gets in trouble, brave main man runs in saves the day. I loved in this book how it showed not everything would be perfect. Bad guys get a chance to hurt again sometimes. I loved that Kyle was "real" enough to be truly upset and actually break down. It kinda drove home the depth of his love and concern for Maggie. He didn't run in with guns blazing. That's real. I really would rather my husband leave it to the professionals in a situation like that and don't live in a fantasy that I'd like him saving me:-) And I'm not going to forget to mention, sex scenes are very hot and steamy. After all, that's what sets a romance book apart from a novel right?;-)
In the end, it was a very well-written and engaging book. For a short book. It's not a meat-and-potatoes book, more like a really good appetizer. My thanks to Ms. Dane for a very enjoyable listen and I recommend it to anyone looking for a short little escape from reality while reading a book.
Nothing, it was just weak
Narrator started off pretty fair, and then as different characters were introduced, it seems the narrator ran out of steam
While this story isn't bad, the narration is poor - very little voice differentiation and intonation. I won't be considering the rest of the series until the narrator changes.
