Great Family Dynamic

I own the boxed set of the Parker Sisters and have just finished listening to book 4 in the series "What We Can't Have" and the heroine is Mason the youngest and smartest of the 6 sisters. Now I really enjoy this honorable and very loving family and each book can be read as a standalone but to get the fullest appreciation of this very interesting family they should really be read in sequence.
There are a lot of reviews for this series and the readers seem to want to give a lot of the story away so I won't add to this. What I will say is I am truly enjoying getting to know this family. The author does such a marvelous job fleshing out each member so you feel like you know and feel for their life’s flow. This family dynamic is one I wish I had grown up in. So if you really want to enjoy a good family read I highly recommend you buy and start with this great family. Now it's off to reading book 5. Now every family has at least one trouble maker and here it comes "Scarlett" in "Go Your Own Way".

Another great book in the Parker Sisters series.

What We Can't Have is the fourth book in the Parker Sisters series. You could probably read this without reading the others first, but I think you'll enjoy them more if you read the series in order.

Once again, Teri Clark Linden has given another fantastic performance. She really does a wonderful job and made listening to this story captivating. I'm really picky about female narrators and she is one of the good ones.

This story is about Mason, the youngest Parker sister. She's the smart one and has enough credits to finish high school early; a fact that she's kept from her family. Her sister Scarlett has been horrible to her lately, especially after a man Scarlett was interested in shows an interest in seventeen-year-old Mason.

Justin rides broncs in the rodeo and when he sees Mason and Scarlett together watching him ride, he only has eyes for Mason. Mason and Justin soon find out that they are neighbors and that there is bad blood between their families; Justin's dad wants to buy the land that Mason's family owns.

I don't want to give too much of the story away but there is a lot of hostility in this one as differences between Mason, Scarlett and the rest of the Parkers escalate. Justin is firmly in Mason's corner but the way he and Mason handle things definitely didn't help keep harmony in the family.

This story has a HFN (happy for now) but I hope we hear more from Mason and Justin in the remaining books in this series.

A copy of this audiobook was provided to me at no cost but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

Sister's gloves off

What a beautiful narration, could feel the frustrations and passion.

Scarlett is a very confused young woman as none of her sisters beau have survived her attention but unfortunately for Mason she got the blunt end of it.

its a captivating storyline and good catch up on how the older parker sisters are faring
