Gabe (7 Brides for 7 Brothers Book 2) by Ruth Cardello

Meet the Brannigan brothers-seven sexy brothers who bring the heart and the heat! From bestselling authors Barbara Freethy, Ruth Cardello, Melody Anne, Christie Ridgway, Lynn Raye Harris, Roxanne St. Claire and JoAnn Ross comes a brand new contemporary romance family series: 7 Brides for 7 Brothers. You won't want to miss a single one!

Gabe Brannigan is a Californian real estate mogul who is used to seeing property in terms of dollar signs. When his father dies unexpectedly and leaves him the family ranch, he's annoyed rather than grateful. The conditions of his inheritance include living on the ranch for six months before being able to sell it.

He's ready to walk away from the deal until he meets the sexy, motorcycle-riding ranch caretaker. She's brash and outspoken, rough around the edges. Definitely not his style, but that doesn't stop him from wanting her.

Craving her.

Throwing all caution aside and deciding to have her.

Josephine Ashby has found the perfect place to hide until Mr. Sexy Eyes shows up and announces he is moving in.

A man who doesn't believe in anything, finds himself believing in her.

But will it be enough?

About the Author

Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York--then came full circle and moved back to Rhode Island. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene. She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she's not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm, riding her horses, or connecting with her readers online.

Gabe by Ruth Cardello is a fantastic contemporary romance. This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time. Ms. Cardello has delivered a well-written book and furnished it with outstanding, lovable characters. I totally love the characters in this book! Gabe's father has passed away and left him the family ranch. His aunt made him promise to spend a weekend there before selling it. Josephine is a genius masquerading as the caretaker. Their story is packed with action, suspense, humor, sizzle and drama. I enjoyed every page of this book and look forward to reading more from Ruth Cardello soon. Gabe is book 2 of the 7 Brides for 7 Brothers Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete story, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I enjoyed this story and the characters were great. The only issue I had was the excessive thinking parts of the characters. I rather skipped over those parts. Oh well. Fun story though!

Gabe finds Joise living at the ranch he has inherited. Why is she here? This is a breathtaking story of love, loss, and mystery. The author brings everything to life. Will be reading more of her books. Can't wait for the next brother.

The Legacy series shows that love is what makes a family. The Andrades and Barringtons showed the good, bad and ugly that bitterness and hate can do. The Lone Star series mixes laughter, love and hope with wonderful stories that continue to inspire and get better when every edition to the series. All evidence of the talent of Ruth Cardello. It's hard to believe that one person has the power to create so many worlds and still deliver some surprises along the way. Gabe is a blend of Ms. Cardello's signature motto of family, but captivates with mystery and a emotional story of love. Through Gabe and Jolie eyes we see the heartache of loss, the danger of attraction and the beginning of a second chance between two loners trying to mend their broken hearts. Gabe is just another reason why, I am a fan of this author. Copyright of Night Owl Reviews

Gabe is the second book in the 7 Brides for 7 Brothers series, each book written by different authors. This is the story of Josephine (Josie) Ashby and Gabe Brannigan. These two people could not be more different. He looks at everything as dollar signs and Josie could really care less about the money. She has another purpose in mind, needing to keep a promise, and find the time to right some wrongs done to her and her father. Her father was her world, while Gabe is irritated that his father left him the family ranch with a condition. Gabe sets his sights on Josie from the beginning, she is feisty, independent and beautiful, but he feels like she is hiding something. Josie doesn't have time for a man, and she certainly doesn't want to involve one in the danger that has became her life. This was a great read filled with suspense, lies, misunderstandings and romance. Her fathers friend, Frank is unique in his own way but he is also a good friend to Josie. Not only did I fall in love with Gabe, Aunt Claire, but also his brothers. Loved the little talk Josie and James had in the final chapter, but what Montee did for her was absolutely priceless. You will have to read it to find out what I am talking about. Five stars for this one!!

Gabe and Josephine's story is fun, has a level of excitement and a sexy read. What a cool idea to have seven different authors for seven brothers stories. I can't wait to check out the rest of them. Josephine is determined to prove her father was not a criminal after a scandal that surrounded his death. She is posing as caretaker of a ranch while she works to perfect the project she and her father were working on at the time of his death. When Gabe's father leaves him the family ranch with the condition he live ther for a month to keep it, he is determined to just sell it and be done. When he visits the ranch and sees Josie the lines aren't quite as black and white.

This series is turning into one of my favorites. Watching Josie and Gabe interact and noting the series of miscomunications that occur was not only enjoyable but made me smile.
