Jackson Bishop is your typical playboy.
Unpredictable, charming, and overly confident.
Growing up in Texas, the ranch life is all he’s ever known. Horses and late night partying are his lifestyles, and all the local girls know it too. Riding lessons aren’t the only things taught at the stables, and he makes sure clients never leave unsatisfied. Everyone knows Jackson’s a wild card, but not everything is as it seems. He may be a womanizer on the surface, but he’s hiding deep feelings about the one who’s had his heart since he was a teen. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as roping her in and claiming her as his.
Kiera Young is well-known for her sassy nature and outgoing personality. Though she’s one of the best horse trainers in the area, she’s never been able to tame her best friend and the man she’s secretly loved since she was fifteen—Jackson Bishop. She’s waited years for him to confess his true feelings but as time goes on, she decides she’s done waiting. Kiera finally meets a man who promises to give her the world, and when he pops the question, she says yes—knowing they’re both ready to settle down and start a family.
Even if her heart beats for another man.
Jackson’s certain he’s lost Kiera for good and has no one to blame but himself. However, on the day of her wedding, he can’t bring himself to watch the woman he loves walk down the aisle to someone else. Kiera’s already having second thoughts and knows she can’t get married without his support. It’s not until she’s at the altar that she realizes she can’t let Jackson go and will do whatever it takes to keep him—even if it means running out on her own wedding.

My ARC Review:
This has been one of the most anticipated reads of the year, for an awful lot of people, me included!! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Jackson and Kiera’s story having read bits and pieces of them in the previous books. Jackson is such a player in these books and Kiera has been in love with him since she was in her teens, but just couldn’t wait around for him any more, and decided to move on with her life, dating Trent. In this we find out whether or not she does in fact move on or whether they eventually get it all together!!!
You get both POV’s with this story, which if so totally what it needed, seeing things from both perspectives. You eventually get Jackson’s view of why he pretended not to love Kiera and went out of his way to push her away, never feeling he was good enough for her, and bedding every other female in sight. You get Kiera’s view of the hurt and frustration she has had to put up with loving Jackson from afar, yet still trying to be best friends with him, falling for Trent and making a life with him, and seeing the world through rose tinted spectacles, trying to hide her true feelings.
The story jumps backwards into the past and then back into the present, showing us different angles and perspectives of what has already gone before in the previous books, but from their view, which was awesome.
But reading this will frustrate you like nothing else, how they behave with each other, how hurt and fearful they are of loving each other, Jackson with all the other women and Kiera seeing Trent in the perfect light, when in fact of course he is not. You feel like bumping their heads together and just saying, come on will ya, get it together!! It is a real slow burn of a read, but will have you flipping the pages like nobody’s business trying to find out if they get their act together or not. It will have you on the edge of your seat with the drama, swooning with the emotions and romance, fanning yourself with the hawtness and laughing out loud with the fun and antics the Bishop family and the ranchers get up to.
You will end up falling head over heels for Jackson, even though he is a player, his heart has always been Kiera’s, and this shines through the words and the pages as you read and find out why he did what he did. Emotionally I really felt for Kiera and what she goes through, the drama and twists in the story will really pull those emotions out of you, all the while you are wagging your finger at Trent saying ‘I see you MoFo!!
Of course all the other Bishops are in this last book, along with a few new ones you meet along the way!! New ranch hands Travis and Colton feature quite a lot and add some fun, depth and humor to the storyline.
All in all its been a fantastic series, the Bishop’s will stay with me for quite a long time to come. Highly recommended 5 star reading.
If you’re a fan of swoony alpha heroes, feisty heroines, humorous family dynamics, and witty banter, then you’re going to want to meet the Bishop Brothers! This Southern family loves hard & plays even harder!!
