Stunning debut novel –
it was right up my alley!!!
One old farmhouse brought them together. It could also tear them apart.
Gigi has just uprooted her whole world to start a new life. The unexpected gift of a farmhouse in small-town Montana is just what she and her daughter need to escape big-city loneliness. The last thing she needs is attitude from the town’s sheriff, the most perfectly attractive and ruggedly handsome man she’s ever laid eyes on—and a complete jerk.
Jess knows all about women like Gigi. Beautiful. Sexy. Scheming. She’s stolen his sanctuary, the farmhouse that should have been his. But along with a face full of freckles, she’s got a sharp wit and a backbone of steel—something he doesn’t discover until after making a complete fool of himself. If he can earn back her trust and win her heart, he might just find the home he’s always needed.
This book was fantastic!!!!
It was captivating from the very first page. The quality of writing was superb and the plot intriguing and thrilling. It had the perfect mix of intense chemistry, sexy alpha, a little kid, and let’s not forget a good amount of suspense and intrigue. I still can’t believe that this was a debut novel – BRAVO Devney Perry – this book won’t be the last one I’ll be reading from you.
I think I should mention that even so I LOVE reading about macho alpha’s that are domineering, overwhelmingly sexy and commanding/controlling – I might not be ok with it in REAL LIFE!! That said, I have NOTHING against reading about it, I even go looking for books like that. So, not everything I love reading about I necessarily would want in my life. IT’S FICTION!!! GOTCHA?
Back to The Coppersmith Farmhouse!
New in town, Gigi couldn’t help herself and got right away in an argument with the sexy town sheriff, Jesse. Both rub each other the wrong way until she found out that he was the guy that took care of the Coppersmith farmhouse that was bequeathed to her. Suddenly their bickering took a new meaning.
Not long after Jesse finally understood what the former owner of the Coppersmith farmhouse saw in Gigi and her young daughter. Gigi was down to earth, strong and resilient, and had a kind heart. She was dealt a bad hand which she turned into the best thing that could have happened to her. Being able to relocate with her daughter to the farmhouse gave her a new beginning that she couldn’t turn down.
The little town of Prescott was filled with wonderful characters, including quite a few hunky alpha males, more about that later on.
Her attraction to Jesse might have been inconvenient for her but not so much for Jesse, as soon as he realized what he had in front of him, he wised up and used it to his advantage. In other words he steamrolled poor Gigi with his masculine charms and sex appeal.
He made some mistakes which he fortunately learned from, but like all males, it took him awhile to see the wisdom in it. 😀
Jesse and Gigi were a perfectly suited couple. Their attraction was tangible, genuine and smoldering. His feelings towards Gigi’s daughter was real, and sincere. He was a very straight forward kind of person. Frank and direct, and he wanted to take care of them almost immediately.
That was pretty much the recurring thread throughout the entire book. Both, Gigi and Jesse, had personalities that needed to took care of their loved ones. They were very open about their affections and truly generous with their feelings.
For Jesse it was all about HIS GIRLS. He decided early on that they would be part of his life. With Jesse, Gigi didn’t have to worry about what he thought, he was pretty open and direct about it – almost blunt at times.
The suspense was well thought through and brilliantly executed. I did not see certain aspects coming and the author kept me guessing until the very last minute.
I truly ENJOYED this book.
And I can’t WAIT to read more by this author. She has already introduced quite a few very interesting characters that I’m already REALLY intrigued about. HUNKY alpha males – enough said.:D (oh and one bitchy sister – made me CURIOUS!!!)
for an amazing debut novel
