Book Summary:

What happened to her fairytale life? She’s young, she’s sharp, she’s the hardest working attorney in the whole LA office. Still, when Alexis O’Brien finally gets brutally honest with herself, she has to admit she’s nothing more than a glorified workhorse for her boss and his slippery partners. Her dissatisfaction only deepens when she gets sent on a wild goose chase to rural Wyoming to find some elusive gifted architect for a project she thinks is corrupt. Then she meets Sean Rockland. The antithesis of the effeminate manicured types she’s used to at work, with his muscles fairly rippling under his button down, Sean ticks her off from the very first moment she lays eyes on him as he’s recuing her from car trouble-which only makes him laugh. Of course that doesn’t help. Sean has this way of calmly logically encouraging her to face her issues that makes her even madder. Why does he always have to be right? Why is she drawn to him anyway? What’s up with all these crazy fairies appearing? And why can’t she find the darned missing architect? When her spitfire meets his steel sparks begin to fly!

I really liked this book. I love the Rockland Ranch characters in this book and the ones in the first two books. I like how I can relate to the characters and how endearing they are. They experience a variety of challenges, which I think makes them feel more real to me. I look forward to reading more books in this series and rereading the ones I’ve already read.
