Brenda Jackson does it again. Canyon was such a good book it had be on he edge of my seat I read it one one day while I was at work busy lol. I love the fact that even though Keisha was wrong Canyon was still willing to fight for her when he realized he still loved her. i love the theme as well sometimes things happene and we are placing the blame on ourselves or others instead of forgiving and moving forward with our lives. thumbs up Mrs. B you did it again I was truly entertained and being a sucker for love I love every moment of this book the westmorelands are like family to me lol. I give this book 5 starts. MsTamikaM

Brenda Jackson is at it again with another Westmoreland. In this book Canyon Westmoreland knew that Keisha Ashford was going to be his wife one day from the beginning, but a bad misunderstanding from Keisha best friend Bonita caused Keisha to leave town with a broken heart and pregnant which she never told Canyon. Keisha returns back to Denver and has been trying to avoid Canyon, but Canyon is determined to corner Keisha for them to talk, but he soon discovers that he has a two year son name Beau short for Beaumont and he is not happy with Keisha, but when someone breaks into Keisha’s home and trash the place she has no choice, but to temporary move her and their son in with Canyon until they can discover why Keisha’s life is endanger. Keisha and Canyon will soon discover the truth about her ex-best friend Bonita. In this book Brenda Jackson had to show Keisha that Canyon truly loved her and did not do the unthinkable that her ex-best friend portrayed to have happened. This book will have you laughing and show that the Westmoreland Men go for what they want and will not stop until they have their true love in their lives. I can’t wait to read the rest of the Westmoreland Family especially Bailey & Bane’s books the youngest Westmoreland’s.

I am a huge fan of Brenda Jackson and I have read nearly all of her books. I enjoy reading about the relationship between the couples as well as the lives of the Westmorelands. Reading Canyon & Keishas story shows how a simple misinterpretation can stand in the way of Love. Its good see family portrayed in such a real way and the camaraderie makes me think of my family and how close we are with one another, always there for each other. I look forward to reading the next book that is published!!!!

No one gets away from a Westmoreland for long and no one holds a secret from them either. Keisha thought she was doing the right thing in believing a lie to be the truth. Then hiding a valuable thing from a Westmoreland....a child. To have the nerve to threaten someone a Westmoreland man loves is equally as dangerous. Love this book and read it within one night.

Canyon by Brenda Jackson is a tale Canyon Westmoreland and Keisha Ashford. Sometimes, things are not what they seem and we are too quick to act, things can go awry.  Keisha leaves Denver after seeing something that "looked" a certain way and returns almost three years later with a two-year-old son.  Canyon sees them and immediately knows that that's his child and claims him immediately.  In the process of working through this and strange things happening around Keisha, they realize that they are still fiercely attracted to each other and we witness Canyon staking claim on both of them.  Loved it!!

It's always tricky jumping into a series you haven't read. When it's #26 then it's not surprising the first couple of chapters seem like reading the Begats in the Bible. But there was enough about Canyon Westmoreland, the hero, and his estranged lover Keisha to get my interest. I love reunions and it seemed like both of them never really looked at anyone else in the three years they were apart. The fact that Keisha was hiding a secret (a little two year old one) made the reunion fraught with emotion. Canyon was an adorable hero, well balanced with none of the angsty back story that you find in the Presents line. Keisha was a bit messed up with trust issues and a tendency to look at everything in black or white which made her a little annoying at times when it seemed Canyon was doing all the work in the relationship. The child Beau was a cutey without turning everything cutsey. The series is a very family oriented one with constant interactions with Canyon's brothers and cousins. There was a family tree supplied at the beginning of the book but I need to study it a bit more to get the various ramifications. Did I mention this is book #26 of The Westmorelands series? Overall it was an enjoyable story and if I come across others in the series I'd be interested in reading them.  I've read and enjoyed a couple of Kimani's and I was interested to see if there were any noticeable language or other differences relating to the hero and heroine being African-American. As far as I could tell apart from a couple of terms (toofine?) and the initial descriptions of the hero and heroine, there was no way of differentiating whether the characters were African-American, Hispanic or any other cultural or ethnic heritage. Not being familiar with the series I found myself wondering at the large family gatherings about whether there were any interracial marriages among the #25 other couples. A case of Aussi curiousity really as I don't quite trust film and television to portray everyday American lifestyles with any accuracy. After all, every Italian-American seems to be Mafiosi.

I enjoy books by Brenda Jackson, this one was no different. Because I've read most of books, the characters are familiar and well developed. Looking forward to the rest of the family's stories.

4.5 Star Review Book number two in the latest Westmoreland trilogy, Canyon, will sweep you off of your feet and keep you enthralled.  Full of sigh-worthy romance with a little suspense thrown in the mix makes this book difficult to put down.  Brenda Jackson is the queen of seduction! Canyon Westmoreland is fed up with being ignored by his former lover Keisha Ashford.  He has decided that he must follow her home from work so that he can try to prove to her that he still has feelings for her.  He’s in for a surprise when he realizes that someone else has decided to tail her as well.  When it becomes apparent that Keisha may be in peril, Canyon forces the other driver off of the road. Keisha thinks that the ruckus behind her is just a case of two people suffering from road rage, so she isn’t concerned that she may be in jeopardy.  Continuing to follow her, Canyon is surprised when Keisha pulls into a daycare center, so he decides to wait while she goes inside.  When she comes out of the building with a little boy in tow, Canyon is struck by how much the toddler looks like his nephew.  With a lump in his throat, he realizes that the youngster must certainly be his son. Canyon jumps out of his car to confront Keisha and he comes face to face with his son.  While Keisha is surprised to see Canyon, she doesn’t deny that the child is his.  After some conversation Canyon follows Keisha home to become better acquainted with his son.  When they arrive at Keisha’s apartment they find the place in a shambles.  Someone has broken into Keisha’s house and has left quite a mess.   One thing is for certain, Canyon will do anything in his power to keep Keisha and his son safe from harm, so he insists that they must come stay with him until they can figure out who is after Keisha and get them off of the streets.  It doesn’t take long for Keisha and Canyon to realize that there is still a lot of chemistry between them.  But Keisha is convinced that Canyon was unfaithful to her when they were previously a couple and she doesn’t trust him. Will Canyon be able to prove that he never strayed in their former relationship?  Will he be able to keep Keisha and his child from an unknown stalker? Brenda Jackson has written another exciting Westmoreland tale.  Her characters come to life with brilliant detail. I really enjoyed the element of intrigue that was added to the story and it kept me guessing until the end.  I am really looking forward to reading Stern’s story next.  If you’re looking for a blistering hot romance with a twist, be sure to give Canyon a try.  Brenda Jackson really delivers the goods!

This is the second in a trilogy that features three of the Westmoreland clan. I understand that this is one of many in a long series, but there are multiple scenes and pages just explaining who is related to whom and why. Not to mention the children of the aforementioned and the siblings of wives or husbands. Completely unnecessary. Fans of the series will know who everyone is and new readers aren't left with anything to discover about the previous books because everything is squished into this little story. Sometimes less is more. Whilst I can understand the cute name your character after a mountain, shrubbery, bush or body of water theme, I think naming Canyon's apparatus after a huge fissure in the Colorado Plateau is a bit much. It is a quick breezy romantic read, suitable for a quick bout of relaxation or if you need a dose of male superiority to sweep you off your little ol' feet. I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.

As always another one out of the park for Mrs. Jackson I enjoyed Canyon and Keisha's story Im glad that Keisha overcame her issueswith trust and forgiveness. Can't wait for Aiden and Pam's little sister's story hopefully it will be next after Stern's. : ) An of course all of us BJ fans are patiently awaiting the prize BANE's story : )

I really enjoy the Westmoreland family story... And I think what I enjoy most is finding out hints about whose story will be next. But Canyon & Keisha's story really made you think about how trust and the lack of it can greatly affect a relationship.
