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?
This is Book 1 in the new series, Mitchell- Healy Cousins.
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.
I’m a fan of Jenn Foor & a huge fan of the Mitchell Series, they’ve provided many a good storyline & a giggle in my reading life but I do struggle with books about kids of characters who are now all grown up, I think the original characters lose a little of the identity that I know and love about them!
In saying that I did enjoy Noah’s story, here’s a boy who had a tough start in life and the only thing that has ever been his constant is his crazy family, they took him in when he lost his mum, they protected him and to them his future has never been in doubt, he’ll follow in his fathers footsteps, as far as they’re concerned there isn’t another option!
But Noah has other ideas, he works hard, he gives a lot of himself but he’s never been given room to make his own choices & he feels suffocated, when it all comes to a head one night he bolts…..straight into the path of Shalan, also stuck in her own kind of hell, working in a bar in the back of nowhere with a deadbeat boyfriend, no family to speak of and dreams of stardom!
They make their way to NYC and for a while they forget that they’re running from reality & just enjoy getting lost in each other, but reality finally comes a knocking, they both get the opportunity they want but Noah knows he doesn’t have that luxury, when Isabelle needs him one night, his mind is made up for him and he returns home leaving Shalan alone but able to follow her dream!
Noah still has to battle his father, his families disappointment in him and a resentful ex girlfriend, just as Shalan decides she’s going to bust her ass to make this work it all blows up in their faces.
Noah has commitments as does Shalan. Can time apart allow them both to figure it out and forge a future together or are their worlds just too far apart to meet anywhere near the middle?
Noahs story was a light easy read but I missed the craziness of the Mitchell & Healy clan, in my mind they were never going to get old and serious, they’d play pranks in their rocking chairs with their walking frames & spike each others coffee with viagra and this story stole a bit of that dream for me!
