Emily Foster is Charlie’s older twin sister and she’s always been the sensible, rule follower – exactly the opposite of Charlie. When Charlie lets her know that she’s fallen in love and going to be staying in Marietta, Emily just has to secretly go to ensure Charlie isn’t being fooled by a money-grabbing man who is out to use her trust fund, something that’s happened to Emily in the past. When she goes for her first walk in the town a driver goes straight through a puddle, drenching Emily in the muddy water. After this inauspicious start, Em discovers that Charlie seems to be liked and appreciated in the town and everyone seems to say good things about the love of her life, too. She goes out to the Double T ranch to surprise Charlie and then discovers that the driver of the vehicle which soaked her is none other than Charlie’s future brother-in-law, Lyle Tate. Lyle has a reputation for being a charming, adrenaline junky who rescues others but he’s anything but charming to Emily – they clash from the outset! However, both have secrets and their attitudes are used to protect their vulnerable hearts. They’re also very attracted to each other! Can they learn to trust each other and their feelings? Will they reveal their secrets and let their love grown and blossom?
This is another brilliant addition to the series with great characters, plenty of back story for both main characters and anguish galore before they can achieve their HEA. I’m looking forward to reading more from this series and can’t help be remain impressed with the way the Tule team bring to life Marietta and its inhabitants whilst having a team of authors completing different books in the series – talk about brilliant collaboration and cooperation!
I received a copy of this story via NetGalley and this is my honest review after reading it.
Because Lyle is a real charmer. Or he is usually, except Emily seems to bring out the worst in him. It was great to finally get inside Lyle’s head and find out how much of his terrible childhood impacted on him and whether he really is as carefree as he shows the world. Unsurprisingly, there is a lot more to Lyle than that, and it has a big impact on the decisions he makes in this book.
Except for the Lady Gaga moment, which was a great hark back to the Bachelor Bake Off series and a certain bet made in A Spoonful of Sugar. (Speaking of fun things, I really hope that Lyle Tate and his habit of calling women sugar is a deliberate pun on Tate & Lyle, the sugar company. If not, it should be.)
I really liked Emily. She has her own parental issues to deal with, and though they’re not as bad as what Lyle and Logan went through, she’s also handled them a lot better. She’s smart and competent and excellent at picking up the pieces – of her own disastrous relationships, of her sister’s mistakes and even Lyle’s emotional fall out.
I like them together, they have great chemistry, but I do feel a little doubtful that anything could really last between them. They’re very different and don’t have much in common, and the ending felt so rushed that I’m not convinced a long term relationship would work out. I also wasn’t happy that the big emotional issues were left until the very last chapter to be resolved. With everything else going on, that felt far too late for me.
So on the whole this was a good read, continuing the fun of this new Marietta series, with likeable characters and lots of glimpses of a happy Charlie. I just would have liked a longer resolution and more concrete plans of their future to take this from a tentative HFN into a real HEA. Regardless, I still enjoyed it and can’t wait to see where this series heads next.

When she finds out that Charlie is happily in love with Lyle's brother, her twin, Emily, heads to Marietta to make sure that Logan isn't after Charlie's money...yes, she has first-hand experience with that. When she finds her concerns for Charlie are unfounded, Emily has to figure out how she feels and where her life is taking her next. When her first encounter with Lyle leaves her covered in mud, and the second leaves her just as irritated, she can't figure out why everyone else thinks he is such a wonderful person. Lyle and Emily are opposites, but soon she figures out there is more to him and influencing his life than other s see. Lyle has spent his life feeling guilty and unworthy of love. Emily grew up with parents who didn't care. Can these two find a way to make a future work?
The story is well-written and the characters are complex. The author has done an excellent job of moving past the superficial into giving the reader real people to care about.
This is a great addition to the series, with a story and characters that work well against the backdrop of the linking story line. It is a part of a series and could be read as a stand-alone, but it would be more fun to read the first in the series and see how everything came together and why.
