She’s a little bit country, and he’s…not.
Arizona businessman and long-lost McKay love child Gavin Daniels has been awarded sole custody of his teenage daughter Sierra for one year. In order to steer Sierra back on track after a brush with the law, he pulls up stakes and heads to Wyoming, looking for support from his ranching family...even if he isn’t sure where they fit in the McKay dynamic. He’s prepared for every contingency with the move: the less-than-enthusiastic response from his daughter, learning to run his corporation remotely, but he’s thrown for a loop when his new housemate, Rielle, is a whole lot sexier, funnier and sassier than he remembered.
Rielle Wetzler has finally overcome the stigma of having hippie parents and being a young single mother. In the two years since she sold her ailing B&B to Gavin Daniels, she’s become financially stable running the homespun businesses she loves. But now Gavin is in Sundance to claim the house that’s rightfully his. Although Rielle knew this day would come, she isn’t prepared to leave the home she built for herself and her now-grown daughter. And to further complicate matters, her long-dormant libido is definitely not ready to live with this newly buff Gavin—who isn’t a cowboy, but has the take-charge attitude to prove he’s all McKay.
Sharing a roof, their troubles and their triumphs is too much temptation, and before long, Gavin and Rielle are sharing a bed. But sharing their hearts and lives forever? That’s a whole ’nother ball of wax.
Warning: Contains a feisty, independent heroine who doesn’t need a man to take care of her needs outside the bedroom and a sweet, sexy and bossy hero who’s up to the challenge of proving her wrong.
Gavin Daniels was adopted by another family because Vi Bennett, an unwed mother, was forced to give him up. His adopted mother tells him to reach out to his biological parents and Gavin goes along with her request. Gavin is unsure how to feel about his new relatives. But after he’s given sole custody of his teenage daughter, Sierra, after his divorce, he decides to move to Wyoming after Sierra gets in trouble with the law.
Rielle "Ree" Wetzler, Gavin’s housesitter, is scrambling to move into different rooms since Gavin announced he’s moving back to his house to Wyoming. Ree is a deeply independent person and loves working the land because she finds peace in doing so. Ree is stunned by the changes she sees in Gavin, even though she's made a few changes herself.
Sierra is angry about being moved to Wyoming. Sierra is also a self-absorbed and entitled teenager. Sierra meets Boone West and she can't stop thinking about him, but it appears that he doesn't share her interest. Will Gavin or Ree make their feelings known? Will Sierra drive a wedge into her dad’s budding relationship? Will Boone have a change of heart? Will Gavin accept his new family? Your answers await you in Gone Country.
I'll be honest; this book affected me deeply on so many levels. Being a child of divorce myself, I completely understand Gavin's point of view about his ex wife who'd rather be their daughter’s friend than her parent.
Gavin sacrificed much of his happiness for Sierra's sake, which enabled her to act like a spoiled brat. Rielle cannot fathom why Gavin would want to be with her, yet is completely attracted to him. Gavin and Rielle faced many challenges in their relationship. I personally found their relationship to be real, down to earth, and most of all honest. I'm definitely looking forward to the next adventure in Rough Riders Series.
