Barrel rider Reba Duvall has been crushing on Nick Blue since the moment they met, but she kicked him to the friend zone to keep her heart from being bruised and battered by the charmer… until they turn to each other for comfort when their best friend dies. Reba knows it’s for one night only, but still, it hurts to wake up alone. But it turns out a memory is not all Nick left her with…
Nick Blue never guessed his father was one of the richest men in Texas. Or that he’d have to live in Whiskey River with two unknown brothers for a year to inherit his share of the family property. But hey, stranger things have happened, such as bumping into his friend and one time lover in that same town… the one he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about all this time. But running into Nick is not an accident. Reba has a plan. She wants baby Martina to know her father.
Reba may not know what she wants from Nick, but it sure isn’t a half-assed marriage proposal and sharing a luxurious bedroom at Kelly Ranch. She plans to keep things platonic. Can Nick convince her she needs more than one night with the playboy?
This short story feels very rushed, and you don’t gain a connection with either Reba or Nick. I didn’t see any grammatical or punctuation errors; that's the only good part of the whole short story. I didn’t know until I went to goodreads that this was book five of a series, but I know that has nothing to do with not gaining a connection with either of the main character in this short story.
Would I read other books from this Author? Maybe

If this a Novel or Novella? Short story
Is this book priced correctly? No, it’s over priced for a short story. If it was a Novella then it would be priced correctly.
