Publisher's Summary

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?

My Musings

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!

Funny and cute

The small town drama was adorable, and real. The characters were funny. I enjoyed the brothers interactions.

1st Davies Brother

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.

Good read..

Any additional comments?

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.

entertaining, but doesn't fit the bill.

it's not great, it's cute. characters are well thought out and they captured small town USA like a dream.. however it's like a poorly thought out crime mixed with a pg13 romanace, they think the thoughts but when it comes to the intimate scenes.. it's like a cloud a smoke, and then a "we made love in the kitchen"

hmph.
its not worth a credit imho. but worthwhile for a listen if you have the romance package if you go into it not expecting much romancing.

Another great title in the series

I love when there is a mystery mixed in with my romance. Even better was the fact I didn't figure out who the "bad guy" was until it was revealed. I've read these Bluegrass books as much for the town as the individual stories. I love the quirkiness of the characters as well as how everyone seems to know everything. I love when the newcomers are faces with this small town "charm". I can't wait to move on to the next installment.

Good

I'm enjoying listening to Eric G. Dove's narration. He's very good. This is the #2 in the "Bluegrass Brothers". Where it's good, it's not as good as the first series. I guess, bc I figured out who was the "boss" from the beginning. But the banter and all of Keeneston's main characters it's a fun audio book. I recommend listening. 😁

Almost enough time to make a roast beef sandwich!

Story was entertaining with a credible plot, the narrator did a good job with the different characters, and overall it was a nice complete book well worth a credit but this time it was offered thru the Romance add on. But, BUT, the time between chapters was lengthy. As the books in the series progressed, the wait between chapters became longer and longer. In book 5 if it hadn't been for another distraction, I would have stopped the book and missed the epilogue. Could you shorten them just a little?
