When you have an older brother, it is pretty certain that he is going to have a friend that will take your heart away. Bailey fell into that category and she sure as did fell for her brother’s best friend, Hunter. He has always acted as a big brother to her. Apart from one time, a really drunk time in Vegas when they got married. If only Hunter had not rushed to the annulment, her heart would not be broken now.
Hunter is a man with commitment issues. He never experienced demonstrations of love from his parents and Blake and Bailey were his closest friends, more like family. He would never think of Bailey as a woman, so after the stupidest drunken night in Vegas, he wanted to make things right before his best friend finds out. Only that, after that trip to Vegas, Bailey was distant to him. Now he is back in Bride to help his friends at the ranch.
The story is really sweet. With the couple being friends since school and a love being fed for years, it was certain that a heartbreak would be out there. It was really lovely though and nice, as both characters came to understand what they want and what the need throughout the book.
Truth been told, I really enjoyed Bailey’s character and I sympathized! She could not trust her heart n Hunter’s arms, as he was never the relationship guy. At the same time, I enjoyed Hunter as well. He tried and fought for Bailey, until he realized his true feelings. Then he just fought more!
