River knows all about the uglier side of life and has the inner demons as a constant reminder. He knows damn well he’s damaged goods, but getting that through Jeanette Munroe’s pretty head seems to be an act in futility. River’s managed to keep his relationship with Jeanette purely platonic. She deserves a man who is whole, inside and out.

Jeanette has been secretly crazy about her best friend River since high school. She’s always dreamed of being swept up into his strong, capable arms and having him profess his undying love to her. Unfortunately, he doesn’t seem to realize she’s even a woman. When Jeanette is mugged and ends up with a mild concussion, River comes riding to her rescue. There’s finally a chance to get up close and personal with the big cutie—and she’ll darn well grab it will both hands.

"There was a great deal of sadness in this story but there was also a funny, light heartedness to it as well. Will definitely be rereading this series & recommending it." --Christina Montmimy, Goodreads

"I enjoyed them the first time, then when I read them again in this story, I just chuckled and rolled my eyes! Anyway, I loved all the characters... A family of 5 sexy, alpha brothers that love their women just right! Worth the read!" --Michelle, Goodreads

I loved this book....River's past has now been put forth to understand & it makes me like him even more than I did.

We finally get River an Jeanette's story as the finale to a great series! I think I liked this novella the best because the emotion was the deepest, the angst was more intense and the backstory was filled in and questions were answered. My only complaint was there seemed to be several déjà vu moment ...more

I knew River was going to be my fave. I love that the tomboy got her man; Jeanette and River are perfect together. I do have to say that I don't like that Jeanette (view spoiler), but it wasn't enough to lower my rating. ...more
