Can you shake off love like the dust on your boots or does it stay forever attached?

Hope Scruggs is the sweetheart of Bramble, Texas and Colt Lomax has always been seen as the town's bad boy. They had played those roles growing up and as adults when they both find themselves back in town it is easy to step back into them. Even after years away though the fire between them is still burning and they both have the ability to aggravate the heck out of each other.

Hope is dealing with a failed acting career and coming home to find a twin sister she never knew existed who was marrying the man she thought was hers. Hope used him as a fall back on plan that got away from her and now she is trying to put the puzzle of her life back together with new pieces that don't fit anywhere. Colt is back helping his sister out as he always has and will since childhood. He grew up and despite no one believing him, became a successful custom motorcycle designer.

But the town of Bramble is in trouble and Hope is not only its sweetheart but also its champion so she is going to investigate and figure out how to fix it. Hope is carrying a huge secret of her own around as it appears Hope and Colt had run into each other a few months before. One night of passion has turned into the possibility of a lifelong commitment neither is prepared for and not sure they are able to handle.

There is the possibility of Hope and Colt's story breaking your heart because they are so tough on the outside and tender on the inside. But it doesn't because you see them get past childhood stereotypes and show the strong adults they have become. Regardless of who you were it does not define who you have to be and this book is written to show how destiny can be changed when you own it.

Not quite as tasty as Book 1

The prodigal town sweetheart has returned to Brambles to redeem the life she left behind, only to find that it has been stolen by someone who is her spitting image! Hope thought she would always have Slate to marry when she's good and ready, but when he ties the knot with Faith, Hope doesn't know if she's ready to share everything with her twin sister. To make things more complicated, Colt Lomax rolls back into town - and with him, comes memories of their recent night of passion. When passion ends up with unexpected consequences, are Colt and Faith ready to own up to the changes in their lives, or will they continue to live in denial?

Make Mine A Bad Boy had big cowboy boots to fill after such a spectacular start of Book 1, and I did not latch onto Hope as much as I had expected. For some reason, I pictured Hope as a tomboy, elbow-deep with the rough-and-tumble cowboys. While she can pack a punch, Hope ends up being girlier than I had anticipated - and, on top of that, acts sort of bratty when she discovers Faith with Slate. I think what happened is that I loved Book 1 so much - long-lost twin, mistaken identities, matchmaking schemes - and it seemed so fresh at the time, that when Hope enters the scene and tries to steal the spotlight, I had a hard time letting go of Faith and Slate. Perhaps if I had waited a little while before reading Book 2, I might have enjoyed it a little better!
