Three Rivers are two words Chase never wants to hear again. It holds far too many painful memories of the life he had. But when Chase has to take an unexpected trip back to the small town, he is forced to deal with parts of his past he thought he had buried forever.
Pulled into the buzz around town about the boy who ran away all those years ago, Katheryn’s heart skips a beat when she is literally knocked off her feet by Chase. He’s scruffy, sexy, and covered in tattoos that scream bad boy, with an attitude to match. Although he appeared to have forgotten about their brief encounter, she never could. For when he left all those years ago, he left with a piece of her heart.
As they fall in love, Katheryn is slowly sucked into his world of corruption, family secrets, and lies. Forcing Chase to choose between Katheryn and the life he fought so hard to achieve.

That being said I did have a few issues with this one as well…
One, why in the hell did this heroine need to be a virgin? I am a bit tired of the whole “virgin-manwhore” trope. These two share a kiss and maybe one hour of conversation before the hero leaves town for eight years. Of course, during those eight years, he is whoring his way through bunches of women (even married ones). And of course, the heroine stays a shiny virgin. Now she didn’t appear to be pining for him or saving herself for him. So why couldn’t she have sex as well??
Two, the hero. I actually really liked Chase for the most part. He was pretty much all in from the start and was sweet, sexy and alpha. My issue is that the author kind of tarnishes him a bit with the introduction of details about what he has done for the secret brotherhood. *highlight text to see spoiler* (Basically seducing married women and taping their sexcapades so the husbands had proof for their divorces.) Of course, you can’t seduce someone unwilling to be seduced…but eww. It kind of brought my love for the hero down a few notches.
Three, the whole “secret brotherhood” thing was a bit cheesy.
So like I said above even with those little annoyances I still found myself sucked into the story. I’m interested to see the other two brothers get a book and I would actually LOVE to see Luke get a book as well. One thumb and one pinkie finger up from yours truly.
