Adam Sommerville always thought he had it all—great family in a close-knit community, worthwhile job as a high school gym teacher, and no shortage of women eager to be on his arm. But it seems his luck has suddenly run out. Because Buckhorn’s most renowned bachelor has decided it’s time to settle down—and the one woman he wants just put him firmly in the friend zone.
Hiding her true feelings from Adam has been a full-time job for the past five years, but librarian Isabella Presley is determined not to be the latest heart he breaks. The best way to get over her attraction is to find someone else to date—even if it means asking Adam for flirting tips to help her land the perfect guy. But when Adam sets out to convince her the perfect guy is him, will she face her fears for a chance at forever?
Forever ago (OK, 5 years...), I had the pleasure of reading the original "Buckhorn Brothers" series, beginning with Sawyer (read my review). So what a pleasure it has been to be able to head back to Buckhorn County and check in with the next generation. A Buckhorn Bachelor is Adam's book. It was cool to see cute little Adam from Jordan's story all grown up and ready for love.
I really enjoyed Adam and Issy together. Issy has been in love with Adam for a long time but has never flirted or acted on her feelings. With a little push from Adam's cousin Amber, Issy finally goes after what she wants. I loved Adam's "aha" moment when he realized that Issy had been in his thoughts all along. In fact, I just plain loved the novella.
I'm not going to tell you any more. Just go read it. It's sweet, sexy and funny. It will make you want to start back at the beginning. Now I need to go and read Back to Buckhorn and A Buckhorn Summer to catch up on Garret and Lisa's stories. I really hope that Amber and Noel get a book soon! Theirs looks to be an exciting story!
