Being the son of Colton Mitchell isn't what Noah Mitchell wants to be known for. Though he works along side of his father, he feels the strain to go out on his own. Being the next in line to be in control of the family's ranch, he debates on taking his life in a completely different direction.
Leaving town to clear his head he meets Shalan, a beautiful singer that longs for a life in the city.
As sparks fly, his family's dreams for him seemingly go out the window. Will Noah stick around to follow in the footsteps of his famous father, or will love lead him away?
I’ve been a Mitchell Series Fan from the very beginning. The close family ties, the dynamics and the characters themselves have been the strongest draw for me. So as soon as I heard that Noah and Isabella (and hopefully the younger siblings) were getting their very own series I couldn’t help but feel excited.
In this book, Noah is all grown-up and I must say he sure has matured into one “fascinating” young man. By all means he isn’t perfect. Early on he exhibits this rebellious streak which I blame mostly on the rocky relationship he has with his father Colt. He also is conflicted with the direction his life is headed. Without a doubt he loves his family unceasingly and it seemed to me that he did accept his birth right wholeheartedly but even so he continued to wonder if there was something beyond the fences of their ranch.
It takes one heated argument for Noah to finally decide that he had to take a break from his life and this is when he embarks on a road trip that would change his life forever. He really didn’t have a plan. He left everything to chance and with that being said – he was destined to meet Shalan. Yet as much as he needed someone like her in his life, she needed him even more.
Noah and Shalan certainly did get off on the wrong feet and at first I thought the author wouldn’t be able to make this couple work but as the journey they took on together further progressed I could see that what they had was real. For Shalan, Noah was truly her hero and in return she provided him with a priceless gift where he came to realize how lucky he was to have such a loving family even if at times they didn’t see eye to eye.
For me, Noah wasn’t just about finding and falling in love it what so much more. Besides reiterating how important family is it was also about acceptance, having faith and most especially having the motivation to make your dreams become a reality.
As a Jennifer Foor (specifically a Mitchell Series) fan I enjoyed this book tremendously and I can not wait to see how Bells and the rest of the siblings each get their HEA.
I tugged down my jeans, since his back was turned to me. We were both adults and he’d obviously seen a woman before. Being in my underwear was exactly like wearing a bathing suit. I had nothing to feel ashamed of.
Well, that’s how I felt before he turned around and got an eyeful. “I wasn’t kiddin’ about sharin’ a bed.”
I climbed into the cold bed next to his. “You and I both know what will happen if I get into that bed with you.”
He sat up, leaning on his elbow. “What’s that exactly?”
“Oh, you’re funny. Like you don’t know already. Do you really think I’d just throw caution to the wind and sleep with you after one day?”
“You almost did a few hours ago.”
He was right and I hated that he knew it. “I would have stopped you.”
“Darlin’, after one kiss you’d be beggin’ me for more.”
His huge ego annoyed me, but it also made me hot between my legs. I could close my eyes and picture him being between them, satisfying the growing craving I had for him. “Have I mentioned how much I hate cocky men?”
“Maybe you just hate cock. Are you into cleanin’ carpets? Is that how you roll?” He must have thought his comment was funny, because he rolled on his back and cackled at himself. “You like the taste of pussy?”
I pulled a pillow over my face and screamed into it. The bantering between us was making me crazy. I finally removed the pillow, put my hand on the lamp switch, and spoke. “Wouldn’t you like to know?” I shut off the light and rolled over promising myself that I wouldn’t listen to anything else he had to say.
