‘Lawfully Loved’ by Jenna Brandt (My REVIEW)

About the Book

LAWFULLY LOVED by Jenna BrandtJake “Bullseye” Bolton is a deputy sheriff out of Abilene, Texas, tasked with tracking down the infamous Grimes Brothers. When he is stranded outside Rockwood Springs, he encounters Rebecca Caldwell, whose family owns the local livery. Still healing from a broken past, Jake resists the strong attraction he feels for the prairie darling.

Rebecca has been too busy taking care of her family to think about love and marriage. At least that’s what she tells herself, but deep down, she knows she is getting to the age she has to make a choice whether or not to pursue love. When Jake enters her life, she wonders if she is finally ready to do just that.

Sparks fly as they get to know each other over the course of a weekend during the town’s anniversary celebration. But once Jake can travel again, he must continue his search for the brothers. Shortly after leaving, he realizes the robbers are on their way to Rockwood Springs. Will Jake be able to get back to Rebecca and the town in time to save the people he has grown to care for? And when it’s time for Jake to return to his life in Abilene, will he decide new love is worth fighting for?

My Thoughts

COUNTRY STYLE COFFEE MUGBy now it’s probably obvious that I am a sucker for sweet, clean romance. I love happy endings, and Jenna Brandt never disappoints (well, mostly not). The more I read and write myself, the easier it becomes to predict endings to stories, usually half-way through the book. Although I did pretty much have this one pegged (or so I thought), there was always that little niggle of a doubt that maybe it would end differently. I was concerned that if Jake didn’t return to Rockwood Springs, Rebecca may settle for the rude, arrogant Andy Wilson, even if just for the sake of security. There is also the question of faith and a relationship with God. Rebecca cannot marry someone who does not have the same relationship with her Heavenly Father as she does.  Jake’s relationship with God is in tatters. Can he change? Will Rebecca compromise? You’ll just have to buy this beautiful book and find out for yourself.

I love the characters of Rebecca and Jake, both are strong, colourful individuals. Also Lydia as the adorable, but scheming little sister, made me smile. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series by Annie Boone, Kate Cambridge, and Lorana Hoopes, as well as anything else Jenna Brandt creates.

I was provided with a free copy of this book by the author, however I was not under any obligation to provide a positive review. I have not been rewarded financially for this review, and all opinions and thoughts are my own.
