“A good guy from the wrong side of the Coleman family. Gabe swept me off my feet.” ~Under the Covers
Every time I read a book about these hot Canadian cowboys I know I’m in for a sweet, hot and sexy ride. This book was no different, even though I can’t say it was my favorite in the series.
Gabe and Allison have been friends their whole lives. They both moved away and Gabe came back a while back to try to make his family ranch profitable. His middle brother had died leaving his family torn up and him full of guilt. His dad turned into a drunk and he left leaving behind his youngest brother to take the brunt of the effects. He is now back trying to make life easier for everyone in his family.
And then Allison comes back into town and dumps a big favor on his lap. She just found out her mother is very sick and she wants an excuse to move back to Rocky Mountain that won’t raise her suspicions that she knows what’s going on. And that would be Allison’s engagement to Gabe.
This almost feels too easy for Gabe because he’s always had a crush on her. But Ms. Arend managed to make Gabe work for Allison’s affection. And what with him being such a sweet, tender and caring man, there was really no other choice for her but to fall and fall hard for this cowboy.
Gabe is one of those heroes that doesn’t seem to be alpha on the surface, but deep down he’s as possessive as any other alpha male. A good guy from the wrong side of the Coleman family. Gabe swept me off my feet He was also the pillar supporting so many other characters, and as the title suggests, being an angel. Sometimes too good for his own good. And when he lets his control go and goes after a woman, well lets just say I was a puddle at his feet.
And speaking of puddles, this book got down and dirty 😉 Skinny dipping, mud wrestling and some porch acrobatics. Allison and Gabe were hot and heavy anywhere they could.
We also get another small glimpse into Travis’ life. He’s going to be a hard one to read. He’s obviously been going through a lot and I still can’t figure out what his deal is. I really hope we get to read his book soon because I’m dying to see him in a happier place.
Ms. Arend we need to get these books faster!

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
