When Love Happens
Ribbon Ridge # 3
Ribbon Ridge # 3
By: Darcy Burke
Releasing May 26th, 2015
In a town as small as Ribbon Ridge and with a family as large as the Archers, even the best kept secrets don’t stay buried for long...
Tori Archer is married…well, on paper anyway. She hasn’t actually seen her husband since the disastrous morning after their impulsive Vegas wedding. The memories of their intense passion may still make her weak in the knees, but Tori knows their marriage was a mistake.
After six months filming abroad, television producer Sean Hennessy wants nothing more than to track down his sexy, captivating wife and get her into bed… fast. So when his boss sends him to Oregon to persuade the famous Archer sextuplets-the former stars of a reality TV show-to do a reunion special, Sean sees the perfect chance to win Tori back.
Only, Tori wants nothing to do with him and is determined to push him away. But their attraction is as hot as ever and Sean will do anything to prove their relationship was more than just a fling…because he knows that when real love happens, it changes everything.
Darcy Burke is the USA Today bestselling author of hot, action-packed historical and sexy, emotional contemporary romance. Darcy wrote her first book at age 11, a happily-ever-after about a swan addicted to magic and the female swan who loved him, with exceedingly poor illustrations.
A native Oregonian, Darcy lives on the edge of wine country with her guitar-strumming husband, their two hilarious kids-who each seem to have inherited the writing gene in some form-and two Bengal cats. In her "spare" time Darcy is a serial volunteer enrolled in a 12-step program where one learns to say "no," but she keeps having to start over. Her happy places are Disneyland and Labor Day weekend at the Gorge.
I can't help it but I think each new book in the Ribbon Ridge Series gets better and better. I know it's because in each book you get to know the characters even more. I'm really big on reading books in order and know that some series it's okay to read book 5 when you haven't read book 4, not so with this series. You really need to start at the beginning and go from there. Each book is about another family member, but you do get little looks into the upcoming characters book. Burke does a wonderful job of showing us how each family member is dealing with the loss of their brother. In When Love Happens you have the sister Tori, who's a hard nut to crack. In many ways she's a cold woman you wouldn't waste your time with in the books before her own, then in When Love Happens you get so much insight to who she is. At times I really wanted to slap her and tell you that she needed to move on and heal, but I know that everyone heals in the own time. What she puts poor Sean though is so hard to read at times. Of course most of it backfires on her giving the reading some very laugh out loud moments. After reading the first three books in the series I can't wait for the next one.
If you've read When Love Happens I'd love to hear your thoughts. If you haven't, they are the perfect around the poor reads. Happy reading!
