Re-released in a second edition with new content.
Bethany “Mouse” Hobbes spent her entire life waiting, especially for the love of Bo O’Malley. But for the first time in her life, she is ready to start living, with or without him. She has found her dream, restoring a rustic farmhouse on the outskirts of town.
Trev McNamara left Deer Run a high school hero and has returned, his football career in ruins. When Trev meets Mouse, he discovers a passion strong enough to overcome his past. But can she accept his need for control?
Bo O’Malley has lived his whole life in the shadow of his brother, never committing to anything or anyone. When the woman he secretly loved all his life begins an affair with the man who betrayed his trust, Bo will do anything to claim her as his own.
Transformed by their love, will Mouse be enough woman for both of them?
As often seems to be the way for me, I start with a confession. I haven’t read the previous Texas Sirens books. Nights in Bliss? Yes. But this series is new to me. And as a result, I felt a little befuddled at the start.
But once the temporary fog lifted, I was entranced.
The characters which the author has created are flawed. And in Bo’s case, I confess that I found him to be something of an unlikeable hypocrite at the outset. I liked the differing PoVs – I thought they worked well in the context of the story and gave a deeper insight into behaviours and choices which each made.
The standout for me? Mouse. She became the backbone of that dynamic and such an organic way that the way she eased into her own skin was like a flower blossoming.
A great read.
