Everyone knows the Greenleaf family puts the “Hell” in Hellcat Canyon—legend has it the only way they ever leave is in a cop car or a casket. But Glory Greenleaf has a different getaway vehicle in mind: her guitar. She has a Texas-sized talent and the ambition (and attitude) to match, but only two people have ever believed in her: her brother, who’s in jail, and his best friend . . . who put him there.
Sheriff Eli Barlow has secretly been in love with Glory since he was twelve years old. Which is how he knows her head is as hard as her heart is soft—and why she can’t forgive him for fracturing her family . . . or forget that night they surrendered to an explosive, long-simmering passion. But when a betrayal threatens Glory’s big break, Eli will risk everything to make it right . . . because the best way to love the girl from Whiskey Creek might mean setting her free forever.

Since hanging up her guitar for the computer keyboard, Julie has penned books that frequently top reader and critic polls and have been nominated for numerous awards, including the RITA®, Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice, and the Quill, and reviewers have been known to use words like "dazzling," "brilliant," and "impossible to put down" when describing them.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is frustrating as hell. The main characters spend the majority of it dating other people and don't get together until the last 100 pages? I skipped a lot just looking for scenes where they actually talk to each other. I love Julie and Hot in Hellcat was really good but this book was a fight to finish. I really liked Glory but there just wasn't enough romance between her an Eli to keep me hooked on them. I started to root for Franco a little bit, that's how little action there was between Eli and Glory.
It took most of the book for the 2 to get together and seemed to drag out but the last few chapters made it worth it
Loved this series and hope there is more to come!
