In Cold River, sometimes forbidden love is the sweetest of them all...
Perennial good girl Amanda Kittredge knows that her longtime crush on Brady Everett was never really supposed to go anywhere. But when Brady comes home to Cold River during Amanda's first attempt at independence, well, who better to teach her about rebellion than her older brother's bad-boy best friend?
Brady's plans did not include being forced to work the family homestead for a year--and yet, here he is. And, to make matters worse, his best friend's innocent little sister is making a menace of herself in the most grown-up, tempting ways. When Amanda begs Brady to teach her about men, he knows he should refuse. But could Brady's greatest temptation be his salvation?

I received a complimentary ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
WOW!!! I LOVED reading Brady and Amanda’s love story in The Last Real Cowboy by Caitlin Crew, book three in her Cold River Ranch series.
Brady is the youngest Everett son, the one who left the ranch to attend college and maybe prove himself to their abusive father. After graduation he stayed in Denver and worked on perfecting a bad-boy image. Returning to the ranch after the death of their father, his plans did not include being forced to work the family ranch for a year, yet there he was, agreeing to stay for the year.
Amanda Kittredge, known good girl and over protected by her four older brothers, was ready for a taste of independence and rebellion. She has had a longtime crush on her brother’s best friend, bad-boy Brady Everett, so there really wasn’t anyone better than him to teach her about life and sex.
When his best friend’s innocent little sister makes a pest of herself, begging him to teach her about men, Brady knows he should refuse. Amanda convinces Brady, leading to these two to off the charts chemistry and amazing lessons that just might make Brady come to love Amanda; that is if he can survive the consequences.
Ms. Crew wrote a wonderfully emotional and sexy story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters, despite their misgivings and the breaking of the bro-code, giving Brady and Amanda a chance at happiness, love and a future together. I highly recommend The Last Real Cowboy to other readers.
