Whatever It Takes (The Cline Brothers of Colorado Book 1) by C.M. Steele



Ana Santini woke up to with pain radiating through her body and the strangest feeling like she was in a dream world. There was a man sitting on her bed looking at her with such a warm smile. There was just one problem…she didn’t know who she was.
It took several months for her memory to begin to come back. By then she’d already fell madly in love with her rescuer. Remembering what happened before she was saved, she begged Will to protect her. Fear engulfed her when she understood her husband was searching for her. Clinging to her hero, she hid from her husband. He tried to kill her, there was no way she could be found. She’d be dead within a day.
William Cline knew it was wrong to fall in love with Ana, but she’s wormed her way into his heart from the moment he saw her from across the road. Accidentally coming across her body trapped under a log with rushing waters all around, it was all he could do to bring her home.
Realizing her accident wasn’t an accident from her injuries, he and his family along with the town doctor kept her presence a secret. Her husband was a dangerous man with a great deal of power who was trying to do all he could to find his “runaway” wife. There was no way he could let that happen. Learning that her husband claimed abandonment, and got a divorce, William claimed the woman he loved. The only thing that scared them was that her ex-husband might still have eyes on her.
What would he do to keep her safe? to make her his?


Sigh. I keep reading this author because I really enjoyed some of her earlier books, but lately they’ve just been OK for me.

Again we have some juvenile dialogue, and really immature acting people. The dudes in this book were all a WEE bit on the trigger happy side “Can we shoot Boss, Huh huh?? Can we shoot ’em??” and the hero got injured by a bull making him unable to get a full erection, but ONE look at the heroine and he was miraculously cured.

Then, even though EVERYONE knew the husband tossed her off a cliff, The hero still thinks thoughts like this “Perhaps the husband would leave the area if he couldn’t find her” WELL, since it was the HUSBAND who tossed her ass off the cliff to begin with, not entirely sure he is looking all that hard for her. The whole “married to the BAD BAD Mafia king” made not a lick of sense either. Why in the World would a big bad mafia guy force a college drop out waitress to marry him, then off her after a couple months because he found out she was on birth control pills??

On top of that this was BORING as hell. Look, I know I am being nitpicky, but there is only so much I can overlook before I just want to chuck my tablet across the room.
