You can’t go home again.
Devlin Braxton never thought he’d test those words and return to Braxton, Texas – the town where generations of his family had ranched honorably. Not him. As an undercover agent who spent years infiltrating the underbelly of a drug cartel with a local pipeline, everyone thought he was the devil-may-care, good-for-nothing, playboy he pretended – even his family. After the massive bust and the shoot out that nearly killed him, Devlin is ready to discover who he is and where he belongs.
Marissa Flanagan has fought for her place in Braxton. First she had to live down the pity and gossip when she was jilted by her fiance, then prove her professional worth when the town’s beloved – and male – vet retired. She’s finally made her peace or so she thinks until Devlin Braxton shows up at her door with a proposition.
They have a past, will Devlin’s blue eyes and pulse-stopping kisses convince her he’s changed and that they might have a future?
My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Her Secret Cowboy by Debra Holt is the third book in the Blood Brothers series. I have read book two but still have to read book one. And I am definitely going to read that. While all three books can be read as a standalone, you will have a fuller reading experience if you read them all in order. This is an author I have read in the past. I’ve always enjoyed her stories and this series is no exception.
From the first book, we are aware of Devlin. And in the second book, he is mentioned once again. Unfortunately, Devlin is the victim of “don’t believe everything you hear” or see for that matter. Truly, things were not what they seemed and Devlin was not who everyone believed him to be. I won’t go into specifics but you already know from the book’s blurb that he was an undercover agent. Devlin is finally home after a life-altering injury. Not only does he feel like he doesn’t belong, he is also defending his character. Devlin, first and foremost, just wants love and respect from his family. He wants to be forgiven for his desertion and finally call someplace home. But it isn’t until he meets Marissa that Devlin will discover he wants more out of life. He wants Marissa. Devlin wants a happy ending.
Marissa is a guarded character. I really liked her and completely understood her cautiousness where Devlin was concerned. This book is not a fast, instalove story. Devlin and Marissa will have to overcome many obstacles to find their happily-ever-after. And as I watched these two wonderful characters find their way in life and with each other, I couldn’t help but to root them on.
This book was sweet but angsty too. I recommend you add this book to your TBRs. As I mentioned earlier, you can definitely read this as a standalone, however, you’ll enjoy it more if you know a bit more of everyone’s back story.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
