Gage is part of The Barringer Brothers Series but can be read as a standalone novel~
After nearly losing his friend in a logging accident, Gage Barringer is convinced now more than ever that he needs to find a different job. But his side business of breaking colts at the small Montana ranch he inherited from his grandfather doesn’t earn him enough money. He has his mind set on running The Raven’s Nest, a popular bar and restaurant near his ranch. The original owner has died and Gage is waiting for it to be put up for sale. But there is a five-foot-four, brown eyed, obstacle in his way, an obstacle with lips made for sin and a voice made for breaking hearts. And Summer Donovan is one road block Gage Barringer won’t be able to find a way around.
This is the first book that i have read by Tess Oliver but it will not be the last. All of the characters are well developed to the point you want to know them for real. They have great substance and their own little quirks, dislikes, likes and personalities so that you feel your reading about real people, they could be friends.
I fell in love with Gage right from the get go, I love his whole mountain man persona, plaid shirts, his loyal and protective ways and not to forget he is a hard bodied hunk!
I loved the fact that he didnt have a filter hes a straight talker.
Summer Donovan is a spitfire of a woman and the banter between her and Gage have the sparks flying, there chemistry is awesome and they make reading this book such a joy, and this book is HOT.
There is a wonderful build up of emotional angst and sexual tension that keeps you guessing as to where the story will go next. No way could I put this book down until I was done and cannot wait to read more from this very talented author.
