When two worlds collide,
Being the oldest of eight has never been easy for Kurt Delaney, but the pressure he’s put on himself far exceeds anything anyone else inflicts on him. Known as the family stick in the mud, Kurt’s pushing forty and with the heirship to the family farm hanging in the balance, he finds his hopes of a married life with children swirling down the drain. Honor and family are everything to Kurt and a mate that doesn’t hold those same things as dear as he does is completely unacceptable.
Deidre Maloney is city born and bred. In the absence of her botanist parents, she was raised by a nanny and knows nothing of the love of a family or how being married works. Commitment isn’t a word in Deidre's vocabulary. Only concerned with finding a new job and having a fling, she embarks on a trip from Chicago to Seaford, Delaware to see her best friend Cait marry her high school sweetheart. Being attracted to a Delaney brother wasn’t on Deidre's carefully planned itinerary.
the aftermath is all that matters…
With so many differences between he and Deidre, Kurt can’t believe he’s let himself fall for such a woman. She’s looking for a prime rib guy and Kurt knows he’s just skirt steak. When they’re in close proximity, however, something undeniably amazing happens. How does he convince her that family isn’t something to fear and love doesn’t hurt? How does Kurt show Deidre that a slower, lower life is what she’s been looking for all along?
In this sequel to A Slower Lower Love, we met the honorable Kurt again and his heroine Deidre. Deidre is the best friend to Cait from the previous book, and is in town for the big wedding. Kurt unknowingly gets roped into keeping Deidre at his house, and when he picks her up from the airport, sparks go a flyin! We follow their journey of love and discovery of their happy ever after.
Again Lila Munro wrote characters that were so real and honest, I was hard for me to put down this book. As stated in my previous review, I adored Kurt and am thrilled with his choice in women. Deidre was very realistic with her decision to become involved with Kurt. It's hard to fight something that could be so good, even if it might end bad.
Fantastic read, and I recommend to anyone who loves a sweet, simple, easy romance.
