It's always good to read the first book in a series and this is no exception. This is Matt and Lucy's story and the first of the Buckskin Brotherhood books. Six years ago Lucy gave her heart to Matt and he rejected her because it was in her best interest and because she was so young. She was 19 years old and had been going to the Buckskin Ranch with her parents since she was 4 years old. For six years she stayed away and now she was going back with her new husband for their honeymoon. Alas things don't always go to plan and after catching her fiance and best friend in a compromising situation 10 minutes before the ceremony is to start Lucy bolts and heads to the place she loves and feels safe: the Buckskin Ranch. The rest of the book is the re kindling of their friendship and subsequent romance and catching up with all the things and people she has missed in the years she was away. The previous series gets a nod in mentioning Seth who worked at the ranch before he moved and I wouldn't be surprised if some of those characters pop up on the odd occasion. I love the Babes on Buckskins. Love them. In all a good enjoyable read. It's probably more a 4.5 star book but because I do know artists and they don't knock out drawings in 10 minutes or less, I gave it a 4. They pour over their work refining it until it is perfect, and then some.
