Jackson Bishop is your typical playboy. Unpredictable, charming, and overly confident.

Growing up in Texas, the ranch life is all he’s ever known. Horses and late night partying are his lifestyles, and all the local girls know it too. Riding lessons aren’t the only things taught at the stables, and he makes sure clients never leave unsatisfied. Everyone knows Jackson’s a wild card, but not everything is as it seems. He may be a womanizer on the surface, but he’s hiding deep feelings about the one who’s had his heart since he was a teen. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as roping her in and claiming her as his.

Kiera Young is well-known for her sassy nature and outgoing personality. Though she’s one of the best horse trainers in the area, she’s never been able to tame her best friend and the man she’s secretly loved since she was fifteen—Jackson Bishop. She’s waited years for him to confess his true feelings but as time goes on, she decides she’s done waiting. Kiera finally meets a man who promises to give her the world, and when he pops the question, she says yes—knowing they’re both ready to settle down and start a family.

Even if her heart beats for another man.

Jackson’s certain he’s lost Kiera for good and has no one to blame but himself. However, on the day of her wedding, he can’t bring himself to watch the woman he loves walk down the aisle to someone else. Kiera’s already having second thoughts and knows she can’t get married without his support. It’s not until she’s at the altar that she realizes she can’t let Jackson go and will do whatever it takes to keep him—even if it means running out on her own wedding.

Ughhhhhh! What did I do to deserve such a punishment?!!
Three books, fifteen years and another half book later, THEY’RE FINALLY TOGETHER!!!

So here’s the thing. They’ve been best friends since forever. Inseperable since diapers. Loved each other for over fifteen years!!! and everyone knew this, but they waited until she almost married someone else. She was literally walking down to the altar. I kept thinking what would have i done if i’d been in her shoes. I’m over the moon in love with a guy for all my life, but he whores around with every female possible and doesn’t give me any freaking sign that he loves me more than a friend or sister. Then i happen to meet a great guy, perfect on paper and since i’m thirty year old and i really want to start a family of my own, i settle for him, even if my heart and soul belong to the asshole with his head way up his butt. Thank God for best friends and last minute change of heart and we got a long overdue happy ending.

I freaking love the Bishops. Southerns to the core, big family, true values, strong females with backbones the size of Texas and real awesome men.
I’m rating this with 4⭐️ just because i hated waiting for so damn long for Jackson and Keira to be happy together.
