About the Book:
Wedding bells are ringing in Parable, Montana, but Brylee Parrish hasn't enjoyed the sound since being jilted at the altar by Hutch Carmody. She's over Hutch now, and running a multimillion-dollar business is challenging enough for this country gal. So she should avoid falling head over boot heels for A-list actor Zane Sutton. He's come home to his rodeo roots, but Hollywood lured him away once and just might again. Yet everything about him, from his easy charm to his concern for his young half brother, seems too genuine to resist….
Zane didn't come to Parable for love—but count on a spirited woman to change a jaded cowboy's mind. Problem is, Brylee's not convinced he's here to stay. Good thing he's determined to prove to her, kiss by kiss, that she's meant to be his bride.
There are certain authors whose books I grab as soon as I see them on NetGalley. Linda Lael Miller is one of those like. Like the other Big Sky books, this one is set in a small Montana town. The cast of characters includes old friends like Brylee Parrish and her brother Walker and new friends like Zane and his family. Like Miller's other books it is a pretty basic romance without a substantial subplot, though some of the secondary characters like Zane's half brother do add a little depth. Comic relief in this book is added by Cleo, Zane's somewhat colorful housekeeper.
Both Zane and Brylee are skittish about a relationship; however things get physical in a hurry. The scenes are hot but but the descriptions are more flowery than anatomic. Interestingly, Zane decides that things got too physical too fast and that they should abstain until marriage, so for six months they were at least somewhat chaste.
What can I say? This is no literary classic; yet it is exactly what I expected when I picked it up, which I was eager to do. I'll give it a B and recommend it if you like this kind of book.
