From New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster comes a sizzling new Buckhorn Brothers novella

For odd-girl-out Zoey Hodge, the best thing about Buckhorn, Kentucky, was leaving it behind. And now she's back—at least until she can nurse her mother back to health and hightail it out of there anew. But there's one person she doesn't mind seeing again. Garrett Hudson was one of the few who was always kind to her. Now he's a firefighter—still one of the good guys, but with a sexy alpha charm that's tempting her inner bad girl.

In school, Zoey was smart, witty and unafraid to be herself. Garrett fell hard back then, and he's falling even faster now. As far as he's concerned, there are all kinds of reasons Zoey should stick around. Her pet grooming business. Her mom. And the chance for him to prove that he can be her real-life hero in every way that matters….

Look for more titles in the Buckhorn Brothers series, available now from Lori Foster and Harlequin HQN: Buckhorn Beginnings, Forever Buckhorn, The Buckhorn Legacy and the novella "Buckhorn Ever After" in the Animal Attraction anthology.

I haven't even started and wish i hadn't bought it. I didn't read the reviews, so was shocked to open the 'book' up and find it's less than 90 pages. I'm at page 7 and haven't passed the table of contents. Not worth almost $3.

83 pages - what a bad deal - not worth the money for 86 pages

Too short....only 83 pages for 2.99. Once it got interesting it was over. Wish it was longer. Hope Shohn has a book! Still love Lori Foster though! Will continue to read her books!

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ Stars Back to Buckhorn is a quick read novella in Lori Foster's Buckhorn Brothers series.  I was immediately ensconced by this short story.  I've always been a huge fan of the Buckhorn Brothers and this one was no less than satisfying!  Garrett Hudson, a firefighter, good guy extraordinaire, sexy as hell, and every girls dream of Mr. Right.  He is given a chance to connect with the one girl he's always wanted to kiss, Zoey.   Zoey Hodge has always been a bit eccentric.  She lives life to the fullest, always trying to see the good in everyone and every situation.  With a long standing a crush on the infamous Garrett Hudson, Zoey comes back to Buckhorn to start over and help her ailing mother.  Little does she know that her dream guy is just as attracted to her as she is to him.   I appreciated reading the current adventures of the Buckhorn guys and their family.  Lori Foster has a down home style of writing that appears in every character she creates.  The depth of the hero and heroine in this story was so bedazzling.  I felt as if I knew Garrett on many levels and could totally relate to Zoey's carefree spirit.  Will Garrett let love win and claim the one and only girl above all else?  Can Zoey show Garrett that her whimsical way about love and happiness can complete him beyond all else?  If you want a satisfying, captivating short romantic read…then read this book!  Way to rock it, Lori!  Gr¿ta Hero -   Garrett Hudson 4.0 stars Heroine -   Zoey Hodge 4.0 stars Steam Level:  4.0 stars  Plot:  4.0 stars  Cliffhanger: No Would I recommend this book: Yes!  Absolutely!   Would I read other books by this author: Yes!  Of coarse!  Lori Foster Rocks!!! ***Received an ARC of this book from the Publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review***

I loved all the original Buckhorn novels (Gabe is still my favourite) and visiting the town and seeing how things have changed and yet stayed fundamentally the same is always a delight. In A Buckhorn Summer, we get to see Lisa, Jordan's adopted daughter, meet up with a man she never expects to see again - her one night stand from the city who just happens to be the new owner of the marina store in town. She's home to recoup from an exhausting work environment (the one that resulted in her letting loose with Gray in the first place), and unsure of her future. But in the meantime, she's quite happy to take a job at the store, especially if it means really getting to know her one-time lover. This novella was pretty much what I expected it to be - a small town romance in signature Lori Foster style, with a sexy romance between two very likeable characters . Gray comes across as a kind, competent, hardworking man. He's an ex-cop, with a bit of tragedy in his past, and the laid back atmosphere of Buckhorn is exactly what he needs. Lisa has the reputation of being a driven woman, a bit of an enigma to her family for her desire to be so work driven that it took her away to the city. But they are delighted to have her back - and so is Gray, who had been kicking himself mentally for never finding out the name and contact details of the woman who had taken his breath away. It's fate that lands them back together, and fate that will seal the deal as they reconnect. There is a bit of a mystery plot to add the need for Lisa's family to show up en masse and meddle. I really enjoyed seeing all of them too, the camaraderie of the family just as much fun now as it was in the original stories. 4 stars for this delightful , sexy reunion. The ebook version of this title also included a previously released novella, Back to Buckhorn, which as the title implies, is another story of a wayward ex-Buckhorn resident who makes her way home. In this case, it is Zoey, a woman who had the misfortune of being involved with a young man who died in a tragic car accident, and who was blamed by that man's family for his death. She left town when the scandal threatened to overwhelm her, but it's been seven years, and she's coming back to help her ailing mother, hoping that what happened in the past will stay in the past. It's just her luck that Garrett is at the airport to pick her up - her one time crush, seeing her now after a harrowing flight involving a very sick toddler who cast up his accounts, all over her! Just the kind of impression she'd hoped would never happen, and certainly not in front of Garrett! But Garrett has always had a thing for Zoey and she cleans up good, as evidenced by his immediate impression (post shower) that she's just the woman for him. This story combines dealing with the past tragedy that exiled Zoey in the first place with the sweet and sexy romance between Garrett and Zoey. I loved seeing all the original Buckhorn story characters (Morgan is Garrett's father so we get some fun scenes with him) and it's made me want to go back and reread all those first stories that drew me to Lori Foster's writing. 4 sweet and sexy stars.

Foster is the master at making your pulse race while having you laugh out loud at her characters’ antics. This well-crafted novella kept me captivated throughout. Foster easily and seamlessly develops the world that the characters find themselves in, drawing her readers into this gorgeous lakeside town that you can’t help but picture. I thoroughly appreciate how Foster develops her setting (and characters) so seamlessly without overtly doing so. You get a clear picture of everything without ever leaving the excitement of the story. Although bound in a short page count, the main characters in this novella are quite well developed. You get to know them in the here and now, as well as learning about their pasts. I appreciated the fact that the male lead was a charming, witty, all around nice guy who was also quite the alpha male without being domineering. He was the perfect man, without seeming overly perfect. He was oh-so-real. By paring him with a woman who was a little quirky, but yet still able to stand her own and stand up for herself Foster creates characters that you can’t help but get into. Overall this is a fast paced, quick, enjoyable read that will keep you captivated to the last sentence. I’d definitely recommend it to Foster’s fans, and those who are looking to delve into her work because as brilliantly as this fits into the Buckhorn series, it’s also a brilliant standalone. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Zoey moves back to town after a long absence.  The town blames her for something her ex-boyfriend did.  Garrett sees Zoey at the airport where she is a mess and blows off her offer to dinner.  After Zoey cleans up from the unfortunate incident on the airplane, Garrett can't keep away from her.  Their story was well told and, although brief, depicted that they both had feelings for each other in high school.  As it is a shorter story, I missed the lead up to their feelings for each other.  Overall a decent, easy read.

¿A delightful spunky and spicy read!!¿ My rating: 4 of 5 ¿¿ Zoey Hodge left Buckhorn behind her years ago, after her high school years ended on a dramatic note. She never looked back, until now, because her mother needs her help while she recovers. Not looking forward to facing a town full of judgemental looks, Zoey ducks her head as she walks off the plane. Fully expecting her friend Amber to pick her up from the airport, she is surprised to find her old crush Garrett Hudson, Amber's brother waiting for her instead.  Doing his sister a favor, Garrett is wondering if Zoey will still look the same as she did in high school. She was always a bright chatterbox, a pretty girl who marched to her own drummer and he had always kept his eye on her. Now a firefighter in town, Garrett had his entire family still around and never felt the need to leave Buckhorn. But then he was never treated quite as poorly as Zoey had been. It doesn't take Zoey long to find that some things never change. Even after all these years the dirty looks are still coming her way, but on the flip side, the Hudson family still treated her with the same kindness they always had. Garrett hadn't changed in that respect either, but boy had he grown up!  And it turns out their mutual attraction was still alive and well too. Maybe there are more reasons to hang around Buckhorn after all. ***** Its been a long time since I have read a Buckhorn Brothers book and it was nice to get the taste back for this special breed of men! Men's men all the way, but all raised well by their mommas, all knowing very well how to treat a woman. A smidgeon on the overbearing side, but protective and caring, and when it comes down to it and they find that right woman, they are not afraid to lay all their feelings out on the table. So scrumptious!! I loved the characters, especially Zoey, who has an endearing quirky verbal diarrhea issue whenever she gets a little nervous. And Garrett makes her plenty nervous!!! The result is a mouth without breaks or a filter with the most entertaining consequences and to the amusement of Garrett.  I personally, would have loved to have seen these two in a full sized novel, and not a relatively short novella. Their personalities so refreshing, the dialogue so funny, and in my opinion enough possibilities in the story for expansion that it would have done really well at 300 or so pages long! Of course I also would not have been adverse to more of their pretty combustible chemistry!! Yowza! There is never a hesitation for me when I see an opportunity to read or review a book by Lori Foster. It really is a no-brainer. Her books were the first ones I ever read that brought me into the realm of sexy romance and made me fall in love with it, and to this day I can trust her writing will always deliver!  ¿A delightful spunky and spicy read!!¿ **Copy provided in return for an honest review**
