Jeremiah Church and Raina Harper have been close since they were kids, back when life was all about hot Nevada summers spent running wild on the backs of their motorcycles with their friends. Now in their thirties, their lives are changing, and so is the way Miah looks at Raina—a sizzling tension has begun to smolder, impossible to ignore.
Miah is a man of simple pleasures—after a long day overseeing his family’s cattle ranch, a cool drink in his hand and a barstool under his backside are all he needs. Except lately, Miah’s begun looking at his bartender differently. Raina is Miah’s polar opposite—she’s as hot-headed as he is self-possessed, as wild as he is steady. And though they’re a recipe for disaster, the mutual attraction brewing between them is too tempting to deny.
But when bottled-up desires hit this hard, this fast, after so long, the results are positively explosive. And while the affair is hot enough set the badlands on fire, when the flames burn out, will their lifelong friendship survive, or go up in smoke?
Jeremiah Church, rancher of Three C’s in Fortuity, Nevada knows what he wants his future to hold. I loved meeting Miah on a deeper level, prior to the pain you could feel coming from him in previous installments. We find out early that Miah loves, he loves hard, with all of himself. Raina and Miah have been friends since they were young. This proof of their history, friendship and trust built on a steady foundation. We run into Alex and Vince in this novella, and we witness the excessive drinking Alex was partaking in on a regular basis when off duty prior to that horrific night (in a previous installment). The heat and compassion was off the charts. This novella aided in filling in some missing pieces for me, clearing up some question about what happened between Raina and Miah. I want more of Miah and I can’t wait to see what Cara brings us next! Give Miah a try and find your next book crush! Rating: 4 stars
