Overview

Living with four over-protective brothers is enough to make a good girl go bad. But the day Brianne Cates hits the road for a taste of freedom, she gets more trouble than she bargained for when she's arrested by a sexy sheriff in mirrored shades. Now doing a stint of community service, she's not going to let a cowboy cop like Dusty Hicks mess with her newfound independence-even if he awakens every wicked fantasy she's ever had.

In Bramble, Texas, Dusty is the law. That means no leniency for the gorgeous rebel whose highway antics almost got them both killed. The divorced lawman doesn't need another rich, pampered princess, even if Brianne has the lushest body and sweetest smile in the whole darn state. But even as Brianne proves that she lives to walk on the wild side, Dusty begins to wonder if maybe he has what it takes to tame her....

if you like a humorous love story, tis is it!!! east texas meets west texas, rich girl meets sheriff. brianne comes from a very rich, (oil), family while dusty earns his living by being sheriff of a very small county. its a story of growing up and growing smart. the humor will just blow you away! i have read many of katie lane's stories and this is the best so far. of course the hens are there and doing what they do best, causing trouble, not that they see it that way. if you miss this story you will have missed a rip roarin' good read!!!

Another lol book in Bramble. Dusty and Bri are witty and fun. The town of Bramble is always good for a laugh and some country love.

This book was exactly what I needed on my vacation! It was entertaining, hilarious, and steamy. When you spend your days in traffic and at an office, Bramble is the perfect reprieve.

Pure country goodness is what you will find in this book! I will be the first to admit some of the other books in this series have been a little ADHD’ish – all over the place but with plenty of fun! This book is nothing short of that; although, I did find it much easier to follow than some of the others. Also there is a clear merger of the main and secondary story lines which just made everything make sense. If you love “The King” then you will get a hoot out of the character description of Reverend Josiah Jessup – who is anything but reverently. The opening pages of this book will grab your attention and the characters will grab your heart. In the character of Brianne Cates you will find little parts of yourself in her insecurities, wildness, love of life – she is fun, smart, wild and has a heart as big as the state of Texas. Her character is very “Miranda Lambertish”. I think Lane’s parallel between a ML song and Brianne is on the money and certainly puts a character type in your mind. And then there is Sheriff Dusty. When he is first introduced you will think he is a big old sexy butthole, but as the story unfolds so does his character and you will grow love him. I also particularly liked the secondary character of Cora Lee – she reminded me of Aunt Bea from the Andy Griffith Show. Being a North Carolina girl I think this story has a lot of Andy Griffith qualities – you will almost hear that famous whistling during certain parts of the book. The story of Bri and Dusty is fascinating and the magnetism between the two is very well described. The relationship is also just fun. The window jail scene is perfect and is one of my favorites in the book! I must admit I skimmed the parts with Josiah just to get back to Bri and Dusty – I was obsessed with their story. You will also get some suspense in this little package. There is also good foreshadowing to the next book in the series – which I cannot wait to read! If you love contemporary westerns then this is worth your time. It has all the classic elements – small town, diner and beauty salon scenes, beautiful wild child, sexy man in uniform, suspense. and some not so classic elements – secret passages ways, whore houses, pistol totin’ grannies, girl-on-girl porn, drug Lords – yep, it is a good ol’ time – you won’t be able to put it down.

## I'm afraid I found this book exhausting. Strange description? Tell me about it. Although I loved the humor of this story, there was just too much going on. The hero and heroine didn't have much chemistry and that is an absolute must for me. The hero saw the heroine as a spoiled rich princess and never revised his opinion of her. I wish the author would've let him see how awesome she was, money be damned. There was just too much useless information and the whole 'hen house' thing was bizarre as well. The sole reason I upgraded this book to two stars was the humor. Sorry but I can't really recommend.

I want my money back. I'm over Minnie and the Hen house. This book was ridiculous and i could not finish reading it.
