Mac knows Deacon means to destroy the ranch and therefore destroy her livelihood. But as the two battle for control, their attraction builds. Now Deacon is faced with the choice of a lifetime: Take down the Triple C to feed his need for revenge, or embrace the love of the one person who has broken down every barrier to his heart
Deacon Cavanaugh, the oldest Cavanaugh brother, wants nothing more than to destroy the old family farm, the Triple C Ranch, which holds so many painful memories for him. Memories of a sister who died too young. Memories of a childhood destroyed. Memories he is not ready to face. Escaping from the ranch, he's made his millions buying and redeveloping properties, selling to the highest bidder. He's strong, sexy, and determined to have his way. Nothing will stop him from taking over the family ranch. Nothing except perhaps the spitfire forewoman Mackenzie Byrd.
Mac's known Deacon since they were both children. She was his sisters best friend and had quite a crush on the strong older brother of her best friend. With her own family in shambles, Deacon's father took her under his wing and taught her all there was to know about managing the ranch. The Triple C is not only her business, it's her home. She'll never let anyone destroy the place that holds so much meaning for her.
When Deacon and Mac go head to head things get steamy quickly. The attraction is instant and intense. The story is a predictable one. The battle over conflicting goals for the ranch vs. their growing love of each other. Deacon has a lot of money and power, but not a lot of depth of character. Mac is a country farm girl with a big heart and determination. This is a great steamy light read, but I didn't feel especially attached to either character.
The narration was OK. Kaleo Griffith did a good job as Deacon, but was awkward when reading Deacon sister's lines. He plays a good male role and would be good paired with a female reader for the female dialogue.
This book is part of a series and I'm curious to see what happens next in the investigation into the Cavanaugh sister's murder.
