Reading Challenge 2023

Raylene Rosser is Nugget’s most infamous prodigal daughter. The townspeople aren’t exactly holding a welcome home parade when she returns, but that’s okay with Raylene—she’s only here to make amends for selfish mistakes, sell her property, and get out of town asap after her half-brother Logan’s wedding. Picturesque Nugget is her past, and Raylene is determined to build a future . . .

All of which would be easier if Logan hadn’t asked his business partner to keep an eye on her. A security specialist, Gabe Moretti certainly knows how to shadow a girl—and how to boss said girl around. It would be infuriating, if only Raylene could keep her eyes off Gabe’s broad chest, rugged profile, and sexy smile. Falling in love might not be the safe choice, but sometimes everyone needs to tempt fate . . .
This is the last book in the Nugget series that I need to review. It took my a long time to review them but it wasn't the fault of the series. I unfortunately read these the winter after my mother passed and pushed so many books aside instead of reviewing them. I'm doing my best to get caught up. 

I can't tell you how much I loved this series. One of the characters I couldn't wait to read about was Raylene. You meet her in a prior book and realize she's not much of a likable character. She does some really crappy things to a man she knows loves her. You really won't like her before. 

Then you start to learn what he life growing up is all about. Yes, she was an adult when she made some bad choices. She should have stood up to her father but sometimes when you are mentally and emotionally beat down for so long you do things you aren't really proud of. You don't always think about the fact that you are an adult and don't have to listen to the abusive part. 

Now, I'm not making excuses for what she did, but I do believe some of it was influenced by her life. As I mentioned she wasn't a favorite character of mine until her book. The author did a great job of showing us how much work Raylene was willing to do to make herself a better person. And believe me going back to the town that she pulled so much crap in that knows all her father did had to be embarrassing and hard. 

I truly liked her in this book. 

Lucky for Raylene she found the perfect guy. He knew her past but could see that real person that wasn't allowed to be. At times Gabe isn't sure what to believe. Had Raylene really changed or is she acting. Quickly he starts to learn that she really is a good person. 

I really like these two together. They bring out the best in each other. Not only that they really care for each other, and Raylene really deserves some to love and be loved by. Raylene risks her life to help someone and that helps prove to everyone that there is more to her than meets the eye. I really enjoyed this story but will mention that this series is best read in order. It's well worth the read.
