1: I liked the book, no, I loved it! But I still think I like the one before it better. (This is book three in the Double S Ranch series.) I was really glad that Elsa was in this one. She's still my favorite character from this series. 2: Talk about strong characters, I don't care if this is the first one you read or if you've read them all, in order. You can't help but get attached to them, all of them from Hobbs to Sam to Isabo. Everyone....

My love for the Stafford family runs deep and I have been looking forward to finding out if Trey would ever find his way back home. In the first two books in this series, we watched Nick and Colt find their peace in life and with their family, and find the woman to make their lives complete, but I wondered if Trey would ever really give that kind of life a chance.It is his father's failing health that finally brings Trey home as he commits to...
