This is the first book in the New York Times Bestselling Bluegrass Brothers series. This series is the follow-up series to Kathleen Brooks' bestselling Bluegrass Series.
When danger and passions flare it's best to find cover...
Cade Davies is a former Special Forces soldier who is now a high school teacher and football coach. And something is trying to kill his players. He's been too busy trying to keep his players alive, while also avoiding the Davies Brothers marriage trap set by half the town, to pay attention and to the fiery redhead who has swept into his small town.
DEA Agent Annie Blake was undercover to bust a drug ring that preys on high school athletes in the adorable, small town of Keeneston. She had thought to keep her head down and listen to the local gossip to find the maker of this deadly drug. What Annie didn't count on was becoming the local gossip. With marriage bets being placed and an entire town aiming to win the pot, Annie looks to Cade for help in bringing down the drug ring before another kid is killed. What she didn't intend on was becoming the next target.

This is not the first book I have read by Ms. Brooks and it will not be the last! I just love Kathleen Brooks writing style. She has me laughing at loud to the point tears are rolling down my cheeks. I always know I'm in for a treat when reading one of her books, and I love this series!
Annie Blake goes undercover to find the leader of a drug ring targeting young football players. When she shows up at Keeneston High School as the guidance counselor, she meets the football coach, Cade Davies, and thinks she needs her help him when one of his players gets out of hand.
Cade is a former Special Forces soldier and more than able to handle this aggressive teen, but he finds this feisty woman entrancing and cannot get her out of his mind. When they join forces to find the ringleader, sparks fly all over the place.
Can Cade win this incredible woman’s heart as the work together, or will Annie fortify her walls, keeping them both from a forever kind of love?
Wow, just wow. I just loved this fast-paced, action-packed read from the first page to the last. This one is slap-stick funny. The three old ladies that run the small town café had me belly laughing. It’s unusual to find a story with so much intrigue and humor rolled into one book.
Annie is a great character. She did not have an easy time growing up, but she’s a spunky kid archetype and does not let anything or anyone stand in her way. She’s out to save these young athletes, and she does it in a big way.
I fell in love with Cade’s character from the start. He’s an all-around good guy with sexiness galore. He is determined to help find the culprit behind this new drug harming his team. I loved his openness with Annie and his patience as she begins to open up and let him in.
Eric G. Dove is one of my favorite narrators. He reads with a good amount of emotion, truly bringing the characters to life. He is perfect for Ms. Brooks' books. I always enjoy his performances and love to listen to him.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys plenty of action and humor in their stories with a delightfully sweet romance thrown in. The small town atmosphere adds greatly to the story. You will find all this in this great series. Can’t wait to read the next one. Happy reading!
