When Davis Williams, aka Pinks, sets a goal, it's done. Yesterday. His enthusiasm, ingenuity, and "git 'r done" attitude have transformed him from interloper to integral part of Team Henderson, and one crazy-hot night of vigorous out-of-town lovin' has busted him out of his nice, safe, boring persona.
Things are really taking shape for Pinks, especially when he encounters the sassy siren he can't forget. His goal now: coax the evasive Red into becoming a real part of his life. But when Pinks discovers his mysterious lover is not only intimately tied to Henderson, but his own notorious scandal as well, he realizes he's in the middle of a desperate no-win situation.
Can the man who believes Henderson is a field of dreams keep his own alive? Or has Pinks come up against the one dream he can't possibly make happen in Henderson?

Pinks' story! I love Davis and his determination, intelligence, and planning to help Henderson and the people who live there. Pinks and Red are trying to keep reality from intruding in their relationship. It's exciting to read about the new people visiting and returning to Henderson. Cal and Nat. Melissa and Thor. I cannot wait to read about them.
Pinks finally gets his girl but not as easily as he would have liked! Funny situations with equally funny characters makes for a delightful story. I must say that Emelina has to be my favorite character throughout this series. Everyone needs a grandmother like her! And Harry the “magic “ bartender deserves a story, he is awesome! Charles Lawrence continues to do an amazing job narrating.
I listened to this while in the kitchen. It made cooking a LOT more fun. (I used my ear bud for the spicy scenes).
This may be my favorite book by Liz Kelly. I love the main character, Pinks, and his love interest, Red. The fact that they keep their real names and facts of their lives to themselves to keep "Real Life" at bay while they enjoy their romance makes for some interesting get-togethers, especially as they find they know some of same people. I laughed out loud at some scenes, and one that made me cringe in sympathy. The subplot romance of Thor and Missy is so intriguing, you can be sure that I will be visiting Henderson and the Heroes as soon as that story is available!
I love this series, but I especially LOVE this book! Under Dog was my favorite book in the series. Pinks just makes me smile. When we were first introduced to him in an earlier book, I didn't think I'd come to love the character as much as I do. He is definitely NOT boring! He found the perfect match in Red. This is a must read.
I can't wait for the next book in the series!
Absolutely! Hearing it read out loud makes it feel like I'm watching a movie of the book in my head. Hearing the southern accent adds such a great "flavor" to the story as well.
There were so many in this book! One of the most heart wrenching was when Pinks realized who Red was. He went over the entire situation in his mind about how it was all going to turn out, how he would hurt Hale, Vance and all his his friends in Henderson. The part where I could almost feel Pinks' pain was when he realized just how much he was going to hurt Red and it broke his heart.
He is so talented in that you know exactly who is speaking because of being able to give each character their own "voice". It makes it so easy to know who is speaking without having to be told their name.
Who will be the next Hero!
This author has an amazing talent when writing dialogue in her books. The ease of the conversations comes across very well. She doesn't bog the story down with a lot of unnecessary details. With each description the reader can clearly imagine each scene as it is laid out. When describing the joy, anger, agony, etc the reader can very easily feel what the character is trying to convey.
