Jillian thought she was a city girl through and through; the fast cars, high fashion, and glamour—she loves it all. But when her ex tells her he’s having a baby with his new wife (after Jillian struggled for years to get pregnant), she hightails it back to Montana to cry on the shoulder of her best friend, Cara.
But in truth, Jillian would rather be comforted by someone else…specifically Zack, Cara’s brother-in-law. Zack is a veteran of the Iraq War who came back to the family ranch to raise his preteen son after the boy’s mother took off. He’s struggling to re-establish a relationship with his son, and warding off the demons of PTSD, which still haunt him. The last thing he needs is bold, brassy Jillian…but why can’t he keep his hands off her?
5 Save it all till the last stars!!*****
I absolutely undoubtedly will class Kristen Probys reads as my Top Favourite reads for when I want that happy feeling you know a mug of coffee its raining outside sit on the settee a blanket and curl up and go into a different world, the kind of reads saved for the weekend and this was no different what I will say is this was my favourite in the series Kristen brought in a good amount of emotion into this one and I loved it!!
So what's it about?
Zach king comes with a some baggage he has a 12 year old son and he also has some PTSD with loosing guys on the field with being in the army, he came home though and now is working on the ranch with his twin brother taking the brunt of the work off his dad. Jill has come back from LA she's come home but with some baggage herself not in the case of kids but a past that has left her hurt and she wants to move forward, be near her best friends and family.
A while back Zach and Jill had a one night stand unbeknown to Jill but Zach wanted more yet he took off without saying goodbye because he had to run to be with his boy, this left Jillian thinking he didn't want her-Hurtful maybe? but there was some miscommunication left between these two which then left them both walking around each other with a without talking about it yet wanting the other, they are part of each others family's/best friends so there is no-way that they can't see each other or bump into each other, saying that when the snow hits their hometown Zack becomes the Alpha Male that we love in Kristen's books.
And they can't keep there hands off each other, Zach cares for Jill in a big way and Jill needs Zach in a big way!!
Zack had to find some stable income when he found out he was going to become a father at a young age, although he adores his boy he felt stuck in a corner with nowhere to go and because of that he went into the army where he could provide for his family, yet his ex-wife was not a nice person and because of that Seth was not in a happy home. So now they're both at home on the ranch it's given him a second chance to be a father and a Good one at that.
Jillian had treatments for 5 years to become pregnant she couldn't have a baby with her ex-husband yet her ex was not the right man for her well he was an-Asshole with a capital T...(she caught him 'having sex' with another woman which concluded to Jill starting new back at home. These two have a fair amount between them that should push them away from each other and concentrate on themselves except they just can't, cheesy it maybe but when you know, you know right?
I just love Kristen Proby's for that happy feeling, what I enjoyed about this one was the family element(I know she does in many but here it touched my heart deeply Jill became the mum to Seth that he needed she just loved her boys from get go, she just fell into that place and in similar ways to other mums like Josie in KA's the Will I will just say I had that same feeling with Jill in this instalment.
Zach is all Alpha he's tall sexy manly Protective and a damn good father what do they say? ANYONE can be a dad but it takes a REAL MAN to be a Father well Zach was a damn good one, he spent quality time with his boy building his relationship and trust with him yet he also taught him to be a good boy and to live happy, to work hard for what we want out of life and then to be ok to cuddle and tell each other that they love each other. Yep I did have happy tears through this I loved the boys 100% if anything the boys were right at the top before anything else in many ways.
But there they both had baggage and you can expect some emotion along the way, Kristen did a fab job writing what it feels like to have loss, to not trust, to build bridges and for second chances.
I will ALWAYS pick a Kristen Proby book straight away they're fun, light hearted yet full of moments of love and lots of sexy times that had me panting in my seat. She saved the best till last pick this one up even if you don't pick up the others you can read this as a Standalone but I still would recommend reading all three to understand all three couples and parents in this series.
This is book three in the Love Under The Big Sky series
“Okay, plug them in.”
I run to the porch and plug in the lights, then run back into the front yard to see them.
“Oh, they’re so pretty!”
“Thank God they all work,” he says as he tosses the black shoe down to the ground and then moves carefully down to the ladder. “It would be a bitch to have to take them back down.”
“I checked them,” I assure him, and when his foot finally lands safely on the snow and he turns to me, I hit him on the arm. “You shouldn’t have done that! You took ten years off my life!”
I throw my arms around his torso and squeeze him tightly, then back away.
“No, you shouldn’t have been on that ladder. If I catch you on one again, I’ll spank your ass until it glows.”
My jaw drops as I gaze up into his frustrated face. For once in my life, I’m speechless. I scowl as I pull myself together and clench my fists. “You wouldn’t dare . . .”
“Put yourself in danger again and see if I don’t,” he replies calmly and crosses his arms over his chest.
“Did you come here to bully me?”
He sighs and pulls his beanie off his head, pushing his fingers through the messy brown strands. I want to sink my fingers in that thick, dark hair.
“No. I came because you won’t answer your fucking phone so I can apologize for the other night.”
“I don’t want your apology,” I reply and throw the extra lights and staple gun back into the tote and turn away, but he catches my arm and turns me back to him, takes the tote, and sets it down.
“I’m going to give it anyway.” His jaw is firm. “I had no right to kiss you like that in the parking lot for everyone to see.”
I jerk back, mortified. “You’re apologizing for kissing me?”
Don’t forget to read Loving Cara (Love Under the Big Sky #1) or Seducing Lauren (Love Under the Big Sky #2).
