Overview

No one said going home would be easy...

Black sheep and all around trouble maker, Betty Jo Barker is back home and hoping for a do-over. Things are finally looking up until Beau Simon comes to town. The man pushes every button she owns and manages to awaken long dead emotions she'd rather leave buried. Beneath the surface she knows she's a wreck--her scars run deep--and she can't help but wonder, is Beau Simon the one who can fix her?

Beau Simon, the brightest star in Hollywood has come to New Waterford for one reason only. He's determined to have Betty Jo Barker star in his next film. He knows she's perfect for the part, but a past encounter might prove more than a little difficult to overcome. As Beau turns on the charm, hoping to win over this complicated woman, he realizes it won't be easy.

Only time will tell if what lies beneath can ever be overcome. Or if love can heal all�

Betty just didn't do it for me. I didn't develop feelings for her other than to feel sorry for her because of the things she went through. All I wanted to know about was Matt and then nothing. The first two books were much better and had a more interesting story line.

The series was good and I enjoyed it but I have to say that she uses the "f" word where many other words that could have been used. I think that sometimes it is easier to use that word when you can't think of word to use. Change the language and the book could be much more enjoyable. The stories were creative and held your intrest. The sex scenes were a bit bold but very much like todays world.

THe books about the Baker sisters are a must to read. One needs to read them all. The sisters all have great stories to tell.

When Betti Jo Barker left town, she had no intention of ever returning, save for a quick visit to her dad or maybe a tension-filled holiday dinner. But her fast-tracked modeling career crashed and burned, and she had little choice but to return home to a father who didn't remember her and two sisters for whose judgement she had no use. Beau Simon's career couldn't be going better, but when he gets the chance to pick up his new custom bike in New Waterford, he knows he's going there for an entirely different reason. To say they didn't part on amicable terms would be putting it lightly, but there's just something about Betti, the hard as nails woman he hurt in Hollywood, that he can't get out of his mind. But... It says a lot about a story that I'm able to (sort of) ignore all the missing commas and commas thrown in odd places and actually finish the book. Yes, the editing is that bad, but the story is just that good. And an author who can write like this really deserves an editor who can red pen the hell out of a story and get it closer to mistake-free. Judging Covers: You know, if it weren't for that big gray bar across the bottom of every cover in this series, I'd probably say they were perfect. But the odd opaque gray kind of screams self-published, which (as good as a lot of indie books are) doesn't get taken as seriously as those with a bunch of professional graphics people. I'm really hoping everyone else ignores that and just dives in because…damn, Juliana Stone really knows how to tell a story. The Verdict: I really didn't think there was any way I was going to like Betti. In the previous two books, she was just so awful to everyone, so mean-spirited and cruel that I seriously doubted anything could redeem her. And then I started reading. God, Betti's story is just heartbreaking. She ran from home to escape a horrific event, and right as her career seemed destined for something really great, she was brutally brought back down to earth. And when I read about Beau's part in it? Not gonna lie. I kind of hated him for a while. But what really made me feel for Betti was when I got a glimpse of her relationship with Matt. Up until Conceal, I just thought he was some worthless jerk who was using her, and she was beaten down enough to let him. And boy, was I wrong! Watching Betti just trying to survive everything life had thrown at her was incredibly sad, but Beau's determination to get through her walls and get her to realize that she deserved the dream, too, was so endearing. He certainly redeemed himself in my eyes when he came to her aid over and over again. Conceal is not the lighthearted read that Offside was, and it's a bit darker than Collide, but I'm sure anyone who's read the first two books knows that Betti's story isn't going to be all fluff and daydreams. I still loved it, obviously, and I was really sad to realize that the series was over. I may just have to read all three books again to get my fix! Then again, Beau's brother Tucker's story is starting a whole new series, and I know I won't be able to stay away. But oh, what I wouldn't give to get Matt's story!

I have to say that this book was good, but we were left hanging. What about Matt? What about Shane and Bobbi? Are they getting married? A lot of unanswer questions. I gave it 4 stars, but the ended needed more. Plus a big thing Betty couldn' t forgive her sister, no this one left me cold.

This book did not do it for me. I didn't find either of the characters very likable. A huge turnoff was the way Beau and his brothers talked about women's bodies. Seriously? These guys sounded like immature teenagers. Hoping Tucker's book is better. If not, I'll be done with this series.

I enjoyed all three books, this last one being great at tying up all the loose ends from the beginning of the series. I reocmmend reading them in order to appreciate the series.

This was a good third book to the series. Much was finally revealed to explain the issues of the third triplet.
