At 26 years old, Brady Shepard is trying to do right by his family while figuring out his life. So when tragedy strikes leaving his father in the hospital and his brother gone, Brady is takes it all upon himself to try and fix everything despite his own grief and pain. Katherine Duran is taking care of the farm and the baby girl, Isabella, while awaiting Brady's arrival. For a few months Katherine had been staying with her best friend Melissa and her husband Cal on their farm, while she planned out her next step in life after quitting a great job and leaving a jerk of an old boyfriend. But after the tragic death of her friends, Katherine is unsure of what will happen next, especially when Cal's brother rides up on a Harley looking sinfully hot all tatted up. Katherine and Brady become close as they deal with their loss while taking care of the farm and Izzy, but will they admit their relationship has become more than a fling?
Overall, emotional hot goodness. I love how well paced this novel was allowing readers to fall for the characters before they fell for each other. Katherine was hilarious, despite living with a hot man, she wasn't afraid to let her nerd show and be real. Also love how she was Mexican and that Lex touched on a few issues that many girls in Kat's position feel as the first in the family to break free from their parents social class. As for Brady, me oh my, a man who is rough sex appeal on the outside but gooey heart of gold on the inside, yep I want one. Those moments where Brady interacts with his niece Izzy just melt your heart. Oh and there is an epilogue that you'll be thankful is in there cause of it wasn't you'd probably be pissed. So if you're looking for a story about two people looking for their way in life who are brought together by tragedy and can't say what they really feel for each other in fear of holding back the other, than you'll love this book.
As well as Dearest Series bonus scenes and the first chapter of Shameless.
