Faith Mendes needs to get her life in order and get a job--yesterday. Thankfully, the live-in house-keeper position at the King brothers' ranch is up for grabs. Problem is, she'd be working with her old childhood crush, Nate King. He's sexy, wealthy, and his Texas-sized charms are legendary...and, clearly, impossible to resist.

Nate never thought twice about his best friend's little sister. Back then, Faith was off-limits. But now that she's all grown up, Nate's whole world has turned upside-down. Razor-sharp, down-to-earth, and hotter-than-heck, Faith is everything Nate has ever dreamed of in a woman...and maybe even in a wife. But Faith has loved and lost enough already to risk it all on another known bad-boy. How can Nate convince her that he is the real deal--and that he's ready to rein it in and never look back?


     What I enjoyed most about this book was this wasn’t your typical cold feet relationship.  This was one told from the POV of the man, Nate King.  Two, it was not him that gets cold feet.  You see this relationship if you asked Sam Mendes his best friend was not supposed to happen.  Because when they were teens he swore Nate off his baby sister, Faith, when she was so gorgeous and he couldn’t keep his eyes off her.
     Although he trusted his friend more than anything especially since Nate, his brothers and grandparents had always been there for him when he needed a place to stay since kindergarten.  You see Faith’s mom on day just walked away from them when she knew she Faith could speak up for herself as a teen.  Their dad was an alcoholic and an abuser.  Sam was always her protector.  Once warned then Nate too became her protector too.
     As time moved on Faith learned she had to create her own dreams and protect her heart from guys she dated.  When she actually got to date the ones her brother didn’t scare away.  He did warn her about her boss at the bar she was working at.  Sam really didn’t like him.  Telling her he was nothing but trouble.  She chose to move in with Cooper anyway.  That is her one and only mistake.
     It sure did not warrant any reason for her to have a black and blue mark on her stomach from his fist that is for sure.  So when she showed up on Nate’s doorstep asking for shelter and he was so ready to say NO due to his promise to her brother and his best friend.  She had to use all that she had to get him to let her stay.  She said she wanted to take the housekeeping job so she could pay her way and earn enough to finish her master’s program and get a place to live.  When he was still saying NO then is when she showed what Cooper had done to her.  She explained she left after he hit her once.  That after what she grew up with that is all it took.  She had learned from her past.
     Nate was angry to say the least.  He wanted to know exactly what happened letting her know it would never happen again and that Cooper would pay for what he did.  He told her they would have to Sam.  But she said she needed time which he understood.  So he went to get dinner and to visit his granddad who was dying.
     You see Nate, Ryder, and Chase were raised by Clay King and their grandma too, when his mom died.  They stepped in when they saw that their son-in-law was neglecting their grandsons.  So he too is one with holes in his heart.  He has decided never to get married or have children of his own.  But once Faith is under his roof all bets are off she is a woman now not a girl.
     Loving Nate is all she ever wanted as a girl but she could never get him to look at her.  But she’s a woman now and girl just wants to have fun.  This family saga was filled with funny brotherly joking around, touchy brotherly love, and anger, painful heartache, and touchy social subject.  Most of all loving of the best kind and family and couple love.  I give this 5++++ stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.
