Riveting, an excellent addition to a terrific series. This brings in all the main characters from the previous four books but it is so well done that you could read this one first and still understand the storylines that preceded it. There is lots going on, two new characters are introduced and the end leaves us eager for the next. The strength of the series is that the author does not flinch from human emotions. She covers fear, anxiety, hopelessness, grief, anger, love, romance, sex, friendship, success and heartache with an excellent balance between good and bad. This touches on Rowdy’s young life. He was a mixed-up kid, lost his mother and was fostered at an early age. He lives close to two sisters, Salem and Poppy, and it is their reappearance in his adult life that forms the centre of this tale. Highly recommended.

Synopsis

Rowdy by Jay Crownover

After the only girl he had ever loved told him he would never be enough, Rowdy St. James knocked the Texas dust off his boots and decided he was going to do everything in his power to live up to his nickname. Life was all about a good time, good friends and never taking much too seriously. Only now he has a new coworker, a ghost from the past who's making him question every lesson he ever learned. Salem Cruz grew up in a house with too many rules - and no fun allowed. She left it all behind as soon as she could, but she never forgot the sweet, blue-eyed boy next door who'd been in love with her little sister. Now, fate and good intentions from an old friend have placed her right in Rowdy's path and she's determined to show him he picked the wrong sister all those years ago...
