    4.5 Stars!

    What a fun, fun, fun read!! Did I mention this was a whole lot of fun to read?

    Lauren Layne has this fabulous ability to write the wittiest, sexiest romances along with irresistible characters you just want to plop yourself down with and have a beer or glass of wine and a plate of nachos. I have read and totally enjoyed many Lauren Layne books, but this one steals the show (pun intended).

    Lauren Layne has this fabulous ability to write the wittiest, sexiest romances along with irresistible characters you just want to plop yourself down with and have a beer or glass of wine and a plate of nachos. I have read and totally enjoyed many Lauren Layne books, but this one steals the show (pun intended).

    Luke Elliot, a local Montana firefighter, is a notorious runaway groom. So far three would be brides have been left standing at the altar. He flat out refuses to talk about why he got cold feet at the last minute.

    Jordan Carpenter and her sidekick friend and co-worker, Simon, are on a mission to hunt down Luke and get an exclusive for the television show they are producing called

    . They were sent to talk him into staring in the "Bachelor" like realty tv series where twenty-five women vy for his attention in hopes of being chosen to walk down the aisle and say "I do."

    Jordan, a big city kinda gal, is feeling quite jumpy driving around big sky country trying to track down the elusive Luke. It is bringing back too many memories of the very small town she grew up in in Kansas and hasn't visited in over twelve years. Too much unfinished business back there she would rather tamp down.

    Sparks fly when Jordan finally tracks down Luke and tries her best to convince him to star in the show. But Luke informs her, in no uncertain terms, there isn't a chance on God's green earth he will ever be part of it, and tells her to get on the next flight back to NYC!

    Sparks of sexual attraction also fly between the two and the battle lines are drawn.

    Ahhhh, have I mention what an incredibly fun read this was? Fantastic storyline, bantering conversation and genuinely love able characters.

    The

    series is off to a very good start with

    . Although I am not a fan of reality shows, especially “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette”, I found this story to be a fun, sweet, and sexy read. The Heroine is a “City Girl” with a big heart and the Hero is just downright sexy and charming with his “Country Boy” attitude. I loved the slow buildup to the romance between the main characters and enjoyed getting lost in the charm of small town living. This is the kind of storytelling that has kept me a loyal fan of Lauren Layne.

    Jordan Carpenter is on her way to a small town in Montana in hopes of acquiring the leading man of a new reality show that her tv production company is hoping to launch. The show’s premise is similar to “The Bachelor”. The man who Jordan’s company has their sights on is Luke Elliott aka “the runaway groom”. Luke is the handsome firefighter who has become infamous on the internet for having left

    brides at the altar. The show is dying to get their hooks into him and they feel with him as the lead, their ratings will go through the roof. The plot of the show will be to finally get Luke to marry one lucky lady. The problem is, Luke wants nothing to do with this show and he is very private about his personal life. From the moment Jordan and Luke meet, it seems they can hardly manage to be civil towards each other. Luke’s standoffish attitude puts them at odds right from the start, but the entire town seems to fall in love with Jordan.

    Jordan can’t help but be a little hurt by Luke’s demeanor towards her and she also can’t seem to fight the attraction she feels towards him. She’s also having a bit of internal conflict by even being in a small town and that’s because she isn’t a true City girl. Jordan comes from small town roots herself but heartbreak has kept her far from home and she has come to love her life in the big city because there are no reminders of things that bring her great sorrow. She ends up renting a house in Luke’s home town in hopes of being able to convince him to do the show.

    Their paths cross often, partly because Jordan is determined to change Luke’s mind, but mostly because it would seem that many of Luke’s closest friends can see there’s incredible chemistry between the two and they’ve all decided to play match maker. Eventually, it will be impossible for Luke and Jordan to fight the attraction and things will get steamy and complicated between them since they both know that it’s only a matter of time before the big city calls Jordan back.

    Will they be able to let each other go when Jordan must head back to her life in NYC? Or will Luke and Jordan find a way to their very own happily ever after?
