Blondes have more fun? Pfft. Bad Girls have more fun. Rebecca Gabel was accused of being a bad girl and she discovered life was easier (and more fun!) to live up to the reputation than try to deny it. But now with a new comer who’s taking her up on her suggestions, Rebecca is a little out of her element. There’s talking the talk…and then there’s having to walk it.
Grant Iverson recently inherited land from his mother, so he’s arrived in Apple Trail, Arkansas to check the place out and see if there are any treasures hidden there. What he doesn’t expect to find is a woman full of curves and a mouth of pure sin, but whose eyes reflect nothing but curious innocence.
Satisfying Her Tastes is novella number 5 in the Uninhibited In Apple Trail series that has broken Keri Ford out of up and coming author status to full blown grade “A” wonder author! This woman keeps cranking out these stories left and right seemingly effortlessly.
This trip to Apple Trail introduces us to Mike Gabel’s (from the last book- Making Her Nights) sister, Rebecca. Rebecca has always been labeled easy, why should anyone think any different now, years later? Why not just embrace the accusations? What better time then when hunky Grant walks into her life? Grant just inherited a run down, over grown, sprawling 1000 acres complete with a dilapidated house . None of that really interests him as much as the oil wells. Seeing those as a way to convince his triplet brothers to settle down in Apple Trail for good. First things first, get the land under control. Helping him in more ways than one is Rebecca. She isn’t what he expected when he decided to finally settle down. Home just became a person and not a place, something they both with have to work at before they can have their happily ever after.
I love the town of Apple Trail! Qaint country living where everything you need if right under your nose. I adored Grant. He was deliciously built and had a family oriented heart. His need to get his brothers in one place and establish a family was always forefront in his mind. I like when the hero is family conscience and is willing to start a family instead of playing the field forever. Usually that is held for the female characters so I enjoyed the twist of roles in this one.
Rebecca was a bit hard to connect to for some reason. I couldn’t put my finger on why exactly. I liked her go get em attitude and her snarkiness. I think I got mad when she left for such a long time on Grant. I couldn’t understand why…for someone to just up and leave under the circumstances. Then to have the revelation she does and not go back sooner. Not find him. Track him down and bare her soul. Uggg!
Even with my gripe..that’s just another reason why I love Keri’s books. They make me feel like I should comfort fictional characters. Rage at them when they behave badly and give them a piece of my mind. The Uninhibited in Apple Trail series is innovative, engaging and smoldering with sexiness…a series that I can read again and it will still feel fresh.
I give Satisfying Her Tastes by Keri Ford 3.75 stars
