Sometimes two wrongs can make a right...

Bad boy wrangler, Archer Kane, lives fast and loose. Words like responsibility and commitment send him running in the opposite direction. Until a wild Vegas weekend puts him on a collision course with Eden Bankcroft-Kew, a New York heiress running away from her blackmailing fiancé…the morning of her wedding.

Eden has never understood the big attraction to cowboys. Give her a guy in a tailored suit any day of the week. But now all she can think about is Mr. Rugged Handsome, six-feet of sinfully sexy country charm with a pair of green eyes that keeps her tossing and turning all night long.

Archer might be the wrong guy for a woman like her, but she's not right in thinking he'll walk away without fighting for her heart. And maybe, just maybe, two wrongs can make a right.

Just when I was lamenting the end of the Sweet, Texas series by Candis Terry, the Brightwater series by Lia Riley came along and filled that hole in my adult contemporary reading life! I love books that are set in small towns where everyone knows everyone else, so naturally this series is just a win for me. We briefly met the main characters Archer and Eden (Edie) in the previous book but we only got a glimpse of their tension together.
I really liked how Riley matched the timelines up with these two books. I loved seeing Archer and Edie's story coincide with Sawyer and Annie's from the first book. I love strong secondary characters and feeling a connection to them.
Archer Kane has always been the bad boy womanizer and we certainly get a glimpse of that as the book opens. However, we also see that he is growing tired of his playboy ways and wonders what it would be like to settle down. Edie on the other hand, is running away from commitment, as her fiancée was only with her for monetary reasons and had a girlfriend on the side! She ends up meeting Archer and he is the one to give her a ride back to Brightwater, where she can get her head together and her life back on track.
However, Archer finds himself really liking Edie and her company and he doesn't want to cut ties and go their separate ways. It was sweet to see Archer vie for her attention, but she was hesitant to start something with him, especially having found out his history and that she was trying to get herself back together. They have such great chemistry though and I loved seeing them together.
I really enjoyed reading this one and I just can't get enough of this series. These books are fun, sexy, and sweet at the same time. Grandma Kane is always a favorite and has me cracking up because that old woman does not hold her tongue for anything! I'm really looking forward to meeting the eldest Kane brother next!

  1. Wohoo! I adored Archer and Edie too and this series is just too cute for words. I loved the progression of their romance too. And OMG Grandma Kane! That woman is a nutjob, but I secretly love her. :) I can't wait to read the next one! I hope it will be just as good.
    Great review, Jess!

  2. Oh this sounds sweet! I need to remember all of these Avon books for when I need something swoony. Great review!

  3. Remember when I got this series confused with another small town contemp series? ;) I do want to check this one out though! I love small town stories! I'm excited to check it out!

  4. I completely agree, Jess! This series is doing for me what Candis Terry's series did before. I'm always looking for contemporary romance authors that I'll enjoy, and I've definitely found a new one. I liked book 1 better overall, but I just love how angst-free these books have been!

    Also, you should try Nichole Michaels - I'm really enjoying her series too!
