Everyone knows the Greenleaf family puts the “Hell” in Hellcat Canyon—legend has it the only way they ever leave is in a cop car or a casket. But Glory Greenleaf has a different getaway vehicle in mind: her guitar. She has a Texas-sized talent and the ambition (and attitude) to match, but only two people have ever believed in her: her brother, who’s in jail, and his best friend . . . who put him there.

Sheriff Eli Barlow has secretly been in love with Glory since he was twelve years old. Which is how he knows her head is as hard as her heart is soft—and why she can’t forgive him for fracturing her family . . . or forget that night they surrendered to an explosive, long-simmering passion. But when a betrayal threatens Glory’s big break, Eli will risk everything to make it right . . . because the best way to love the girl from Whiskey Creek might mean setting her free forever.

As you can see I'm trying very hard to start catching up on series I really liked. I enjoyed the first book in this series and got the ones after it but until now haven't read them. I'm not even sure why, like I said, I liked the first one.

Also because I'm tired of buying books and not reading them I working even harder on doing some catch up. 

I really loved Eli. He such a great guy that because of his job and it was the right thing to do, he was put in a horrible position, arresting Glory's brother. As much as he hated doing it he had no other choice. 

Glory is a good character too. She's a little over the top in how outspoken she is and at times she rubs people the wrong way but I don't think that makes her a horrible person, just unlikable at times. True most people don't care for her family or I should say that bad parts or her family. Plus so many like Eli and aren't happy with how she treats him so they don't always treat her well. 

I will admit I don't blame Glory for how she feels. We all know that we might not always like family but they are family. It's hard to separate the two. She need someone to take out her anger with and Eli was the most obvious choice. 

As time goes on they both learn to live with what is done and had to be done. Forgiveness might have been hard fought but it's there. Once that happened you saw how much these two really cared for each other. 

Their story wasn't a perfect ever after story, but it was their's. I'm glad I read it and I did very much enjoy it. I'm hoping to shortly be reading the next book in the series. I only have one more and I should be reading for the latest one coming out on May 29th. 

If you've read Wild at Whiskey Creek or any other book by Julie Anne Long I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
