An old family feud cost Grace the love of two cowboys. Now that she’s back in town, she’s all business…but Josh and Drake are all about pleasure.
Adopted as a baby, Grace figured her biological family must have been pretty messed up but they couldn’t possibly have compared to the Alberta family she ended up with. For one thing, none of the family speaks to each other, despite living next door for generations. Once, Grace and her adopted cousins had hopes of ending the feud, but when she returns home, she finds the two men as distant from each other as the original brothers who started the feud all those years ago.
Grace was sexually involved with both good-natured Josh and dark, quiet Drake Walker years ago, before she left to go to university, but she’s only visiting now to arrange for an appraisal of her portion of the property. Her boyfriend Adam is offering more of a commitment than either of the two of them seemed willing to when she was younger, with each Walker rejecting her for his own reason.
When Josh shows up at her doorstep with beer and pizza on the first night, it’s as if the intervening years hadn’t existed. Grace soon realizes that the feud that meant so much to him when they were all younger no longer matters all that much. His visit leaves her with new hope.
Later it’s Drake’s turn to visit. Though he once thought the twelve-year age gap between them was too large to overcome, time has thankfully solved most of that problem, with Grace and Drake meeting on equal footing now—unless you count being taken from behind on the kitchen table.
At the end of her visit, Grace faces a choice between the two men, a choice that will no doubt rekindle the old feud. But is there a way for the three of them together to come up with a solution?
3 out of 5 (good)
This is a quick snapshot into Grace's life - she has a boyfriend and a career, but needs to take a trip back home. Once she is back, she sees Josh and Drake, 'cousins' that she had a relationship with, but got broken off due to their differing reasons. This is a very quick read, both in actual time and also the time in the book as it takes place over the weekend.
Saying that, you do get a lot of back history and explanations over what happened and why. You also get it set up for their future.
Well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to distract the eye, this is a quick and steamy coffee break book.

Nan is Canadian, eh? So naturally she's written a contemporary romance with a professional hockey player as the hero (and a librarian as the heroine).
