Will she be the secret ingredient to his happiness?

Valerie Perry has just inherited her grandmother’s home in Last Stand, Texas, a far cry in the country from her city life as an organic grocery buyer in San Antonio. Her methodical daily routine suits her just fine, so she aims to freshen up the property, sell it, and take her funds back to the city. She’s only got two weeks during her vacation to make this happen. Now is the time to cash in and get out.

The oldest Hutchinson son, who people around town know as “Hutch,” is a third generation local who is poised to take over the family business with his brother, Cole. The barbeque brothers have very different ideas about the future of their restaurant, “The Hut.” Just when he thought his biggest headache was his job, Hutch meets Valerie and both their worlds are upended. He’s drawn to this fish out of water, but Valerie’s time in Last Stand has an expiration date.

Their sweet and saucy styles don’t mix, but can they both find the recipe to a happy future?

Valerie has inherited her grandmother's home. She has decided to fix it up and sell it. She only has 2 weeks to get the job done. Enter Hutch. He and his brother own a barbecue restaurant and they are having creative differences. However, this does not keep him from Valerie once the sparks start to fly.
 When Valerie is first introduced in this story. I was NOT a fan. She was very witchy to Hutch and I did not like it. However, as the story moves along, their relationship (of course) takes twists and turns. She becomes better but she does still keep her edginess. This makes for unique conversations between her and Hutch. They have some of the best banter sessions and they put a smile on your face!
 This is a wonderful palate cleanser read. It has a lovely setting of Last Stand, Texas. The characters really keep you entertained. It is a solid, sweet romance that will leave you wanting more. I am looking forward to the second book in this series! I received this novel from the author for a honest review.

This is the first book in a new series based in Last Stand, Texas. If you have not had the joy of reading any books based in this wonderful fictional town based in the hill country of Texas let this be one to start your collection. In this book we get to meet a family we would see typically around the corner here just about anywhere... Yes I am in Texas myself. A BBQ family. BUT wait there is so much more than that... this family business has been handed to the two sons Hutch and Cole who don't exactly see eye to eye on running the business. In the mean time back at the smoker Hutch meets vegan Valerie who has inherited her grandma's house. Fate has a way of lending a hand when one least expects it. What you do when fate steps in is up to you. Hutch and Valerie are from two different worlds and cities but do have that snap, crackle and pop. So does this book and yes Last Stand!

I thought this book was seriously such a cute read. I loved the togetherness of the small town in this book. I loved how Hutch wore his heart on his sleeved but also had this tough dude exterior to him as well. I liked how Valerie had this self discovery to her she worked hard to keep the goal she set but was also willing to face he new options as well. I liked that this was a good clean read. I have never read anything by this author and I can't wait to read more from her. This book was a quick read and you can't go wrong. I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley. I was under no obligation to post a review and have given my honest opinion

I loved the absolute sweetness of this book about Hutch and Valerie in Last Stand, TX. Hutch is an endearing person-no pretensions, just being himself. Valerie is rather lost between her life in San Antonio and her resurfacing memories of summers in Last Stand, determined to sell the house her grandmother left her and return to her “home.” Home is the operative word for the story. Is home where you live day to day or is it a bigger notion of belonging, of community and of love? Their back and forth play is adorable. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

An incredibly sweet story about two total opposites, a barbecue pit master and a vegetarian. It just goes to show how love can be found in the most unexpected expected places. When Valerie inherits her grandmother’s house in Last Stand, Texas, the only thing on her mind is selling it and heading back to San Antonio. But, spending time in the small town and making new friends, especially the handsome Hutch, who is one of the owners of The Hut, a popular BBQ joint in town, plans can change pretty quick. Hutch fell for Valerie right away, but she kept giving off vibes that told him to walk away. She wasn’t like any other women he had ever met and he was intrigued by her. But Hutch wonders if he should he really invest his time in a relationship that had a time limit on it? This was such a fun book to read. I laughed in parts, I felt sad and worried in other parts, but most of all, it enjoyed watching Valerie and Hutch fall in love. And let’s not forget about all the BBQ talk. I was hungry the entire time. I need some good Texas BBQ now. I can’t wait to read Cole’s story in the next installment in The Texas BBQ Brothers series.
