Just when you thought things were starting to simmer down in Cotton Creek, something new crops up. And this time the attention is on the Sweet gals. Hannah may have found her dream guy in Cooper Quinlan, and she's damned determined to plan the perfect wedding - no matter who she drives crazy. Everything would be perfect if she could just ignore the little bursts of excitement she gets every time she sees Bryson Weathers.
Cody isn't being much help. She doesn't give a hoot in hell about fancy dresses and weddings. What she does care about is the clandestine relationship she has with Jaxon Riggs. He's made no bones about the fact that he isn't looking for forever. She is, but if it's not in the cards, then so be it. Riggs trips her switch and she's not about to pass up one moment with him, nor is she about to let anything prevent her from being with him.
That resolve was holding pretty firm until an old friend, Belinda, shows up with a three-year-old daughter, Bernice, in tow. Belinda is sick. If she doesn't get a kidney transplant she'll die. And she wants Cody to commit to being Bernice's godmother, to raise her if Belinda dies.
It's a tall order, but Cody falls in love with the little girl and is ready to say yes. Then all hell breaks loose when Belinda says that Bernice's father is right there in Cotton Creek. If it's true, it's going to cause a whole lot of trouble.
Come share the joys and woes, the danger and the fun as we prove once more that the old saying "nothing ever happens in Cotton Creek" needs to be changed to, "Looking for trouble? You've come to the right place."

Audiobook Addict. It's all about the Listen. Mostly Romance, but I do branch out a bit. Reviews are my honest opinions-popular or not.
Last in the series!! I'm so SAD!!! (They really need to make a boo-boo lip emoji...) The drama in Cotton Creek has ratcheted up, and we witness some of our old friends fall in and out of love, as well as experience trouble, unexpected responsibilities and danger. We also get to meet some new friends who I hope we will see more of in the near future. (Spin-off? please?) There are steady ups and plunging downs on this ride, and Joe is there to lend advice and try to guide the heartbreak and chaos into peace and contentment. Someone else said, "Have tissues handy." I concur.
J. Scott Bennett is the voice of this totally awesome series, and his performances have been instrumental in making it such an excellent listening experience. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book in the series and SO hope we will be treated to more stories about these sexy new neighbors (a cameo here and there wouldn't go amiss). Can't recommend this enough!
I was voluntarily provided this audiobook from the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an UNBIASED review, and that's just what this is.
The first audiobook I listened to was a Ciana Stone book narrated by J Scott Bennett and I was instantly in love. I have been waiting for Codys turn for love and who better than Rigs. But I never expected Butterbean or the ending.
This series is so entertaining, that I am beside myself. This had to be the best of the 6 books and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I love Cody and Riggs. Riggs's interaction with little Bernice is enough to melt my heart and keep me routing for him to stay in Cotton Creek! The storyline with Belinda, Cooper, Hannah and Lucas also kept things really moving along. It was hard to get a handle on what the deal was with Belinda. And Cooper, Hannah and Lucas certainly ended in a surprise! Bryson to the rescue for Hannah! I was very surprised after getting to know Cooper previously to see the character change but found it kept my interest going. And of course, we can't forget Joe...without Joe, things would not be the same. That Guardian Angel keeps things real. He is complete common sense and I love him.
J Scott Bennett has created a home town feel and sense of community with his narration of this series. I am so glad that he has kept on with it, these characters are what he has made them for me, and I love it.

Jumpin’ Jehosephat! Where to start? The Sweet girls have got it going on in this one and the book is definitely aptly titled.
Hannah Sweet has dreamed about and planned her wedding from the time she was a little girl, and she’s found the man who can afford, and is willing to give it to her, Cooper Quinlan. The only problem is, whenever she is around Bryson Weathers, she gets little shivers running up and down her spine.
Cody Sweet is resigned to the fact that she will probably be the town spinster and will never have a family of her own. Her goal is to enjoy her life to the fullest which, right now, means having a fling with Jaxon Riggs. Jaxon is quite a bit older than Cody and has made it clear that he is not interested in anything serious, or even sticking around Cotton Creek. Cody is OK with that, but deep down has hopes of changing his mind.
Life is good, until Belinda, an old high school friend of Cody’s shows up in Cotton Creek with a tale of woe and a three year old daughter in tow, looking for Cody’s help. From that point on chaos reigns in Cotton Creek and none of their lives will ever be the same again.
This was my favorite book of this series, and J. Scott Bennett’s narration is partially responsible for that. He has the uncanny ability to become the characters he’s reading, which is truly a gift. The story itself starts off with a first chapter that will take your breath away and have you swooning. It never slows down from that first chapter on, and will trigger every emotion you have. Cliché but true, I laughed, I held my breath, I cried, and swooned, not necessarily in that order. I felt every one of those emotions over and over throughout the book. Grab some tissues and read this book!
Ciana Stone is a new author to me, whereas J.Scott Bennett is a narrator that I have listened to before. Both are very talented. This book is part of a series and a standalone. I liked the emotions that J.Scott Bennett put into the various characters. The book is full of some twists, some suspense and humor I really enjoyed some of the "Bride-zilla" moments. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.
Loved it, great story and loved how everyone was included.
Thrilled that Cody found her place, don't want to spoil it for anyone so that's all I'll say.
This series has been one of my favorites, love the storylines but I have no date that Scott Bennett's narrative was the icing on the cake for me.
This book was given to me by the narrator, author and I`m voluntarily offering my review.
Yes, but I would do the whole series not just one book. It draws you in and you want to find out what happens next with the characters.
The way the family stuck together to support each other.
Cody was my favorite because she was so caring of others.
This books is 6th of a series and I believe you really need to read the whole series to get the full story.

I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
I received this audio book free for an honest review. This was a cute story with not a lot of story substance. There was some suspense toward the end that built up throughout, but it seemed to fall a little flat and happened pretty fast at the end. The story of Hannah and Cooper was not really what this book was about. They were secondary to Cody and Riggs' story. I haven't listened to any of the other books in this series, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I had no preconceived idea before I started listening. I have heard the narrator before in other books, and, in my opinion, is okay. I have enough other series that I need to finish that I'm not sure I will come back to this one. Maybe later.
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!
This is another amazing narration by my favorite male voice artist J. Scott Bennett. I never miss a chance to listen to his Western Themed Romances.
It is fantastic hearing all of the characters he portrays. I've enjoyed all of the Honky Tonk Angel books so much. I feel as if I became one of the characters in the story--a friend standing by in the background offering support to each one of the wonderful people in the story who face almost insurmountable obstacles in their lives. This particular story was extremely sad but portrayed true life so well. The main lady Cody does manage to find true love and happiness but at a huge cost.
Thanks to Scott Bennett for gifting me this heart-wrenching but happy ending book. I am looking forward to hearing more from him and the talented author Ciana Stone!!
Lookin' for Trouble: Honky Tonk Angels, Book 6
: Ciana Stone
Cotton Creek is alive but all is not well. The Sweet sisters are back running their business while their personal lives are bumping along. The romance is steamy, and the drama and suspense hold the listener hostage. Great way to wrap up the series.
The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. J. Scott Bennett is fantastic narrating this book!

"Another Honky Tonk Angels Winner!"
i really enjoyed this audiobook. i love this series. I love how each story could be stand-alone but realy it is best to read the series in order. The characters reappear, the relationships grow and develop and the plot thickens. Ciana Stone makes it very easy to commit to the story, characters and series.
Both Cody Sweet and Jaxon Riggs are characters that have featured prominently in previous books. Their chemistry has been brewing under the surface thus far and in this book it comes to a head. Choices have to made and changes embraced. Of all the characters, these two are the most accommodating. They just needed a nudge in the right direction.
Hannah Sweet and Cooper Quinlan have thus far been hot and heavy, headed straight for the altar. Their perspectives change and they are forced to look at themselves and their choices.
This story comes with love, family old and new, loss, sadness, joy, a hostage situation, a little angel touch and a wonderful HEA. J. Scott Bennett brings it all to life with his well matched narration.
