Can a West Texas cowboy love a woman as much as he does football?

Faith Aldridge went to Bramble, TX looking for her twin sister never expecting to find an entire town of crazy people who refused to believe she was not her twin Hope. Faith does allot of talking but no one will listen as she tries to explain that she is the twin her birth parents gave up for adoption not Hope the Hollywood star. Then the unbelievable happens and her sister's old boyfriend steps in and takes over and Faith is swept away in the tornado that is Slate Calhoun.

Slate is the hometown high school football coach and all around favorite son of this small town and his relationship with Hope was always complicated but never intimate. Once Slate puts his lips to Faith and realizes who she is or is not it doesn't matter the fire between them explodes and the flames cannot be put out with just one kiss or even one very long night. Faith feels after she meets her birth parents that she is taking something away from her sister while at the same time wishing she had just a part of what Hope had walked away from. Faith had loving parents but not the feeling of family and roots that seem to be part of the town of Bramble.

Between the secrets, the lies and the birth parents she never thought to meet Faith is trying hard to take it all in without driving away, which she might do if she could get the town to return her car. It seems everyone is plotting against her and at the same time working toward her and Slate being a couple. In addition, when they find out Faith is not Hope what will happen to the town that loves her now?

From the first page of this book, you are drawn in, fascinated by the eclectic characters, and well told story of life in West Texas. Faith is a fish out of water in this town but as the story, progresses you realize she and Slate both are not what they appear to be, they are so much more. They have depth and drive that needs to be let loose and once it is the pages really heat up.

    This one is funny,romantic and just a really good read. The town folks are crazy, nosey and pushy! You love Faith and Slate right from the start. The next books are just as good!

    Looks like it's going to be a great series

    If this book is any indication of what is to come, it's going to be great. Identical twins separated at birth is just part of the list is of characters whose stories you want to hear. As with many small towns across the country this West Texas town has their share of idiosyncrasies that keep them together thru all the problems that life throws at them. Ya got to love the crazies who will do anything for their friends.

    It is funny, but the story line is less than a story line.

    The story line is less than exciting. Usually I can read a book in a couple of setting, but this one does not capture my interest I guess.

    Really really disliked this book

    I did not read the whole book. It was way too sexual and even pornographic to me. I wish books like this had some kind of warning, that way I could save my money for something I would like to read. The reviews said how good the Author was never referring to the nature of the book. I would like to get it off my nook.

    This one is my favorite so far out of the series. I love the precarious relationship between Faith and Slate. This story got me hooked on the town of Bramble and I started the next book the same day I finished this one.
    I am not a fan of country AT ALL but I love all the characters. They remind me of my hometown’s gang of misfits. I have finished each book in record time because I would stay up as late as it took to finish each one. This is such an entertaining read!

    Plot spoilers! Get a worthwhile life.

    Harriet ruins every book she reviews for other people! I am convinced she/he does it on purpose. Probably does not even read the book except for the last chapter to be the spoiler. I also doubt he/she uses her actual name. SERIAL PLOT SPOILERS GET A JOB OR JOIN A FUNDAMENTALIST BOOK CLUB!!!

    Didn't like it. Found it to be boring & predictable. After

    Didn't like it. Found it to be boring &amp; predictable. After plowing through the first 100 pages, I just gave up &amp; deleted it. Will not be buying anything else by this author.
