A Buckhorn Summer by Lori Foster



Reviewed by Tabatha


The Buckhorn series has always been a favorite of mine, and I love that Foster is revisiting it with the second generation each year as a charity book to raise funds for the Animal Adoption Foundation, which is a local no-kill shelter. I always find myself so delighted to not only help a worthy cause with my purchase, but to also get the chance each year to return to Buckhorn and revisit some of my favorite characters.

Lisa and Gray have one steamy night of passion in Chicago, but little do these two know that fate is about to give them a chance at more than just a one-night stand. The chemistry between these two is unbelievably sweet. They don't necessarily fight their desire for one another, but they both keep a steady head and don't just jump right into their relationship. They take time to get to know one another better, and I think the results were adorable. Her family provides the comedic relief in the story, as always, and I love how Foster always weaves in an animal into these books in the rescue of Shelby the stray. I will admit that their relationship does kind of go on a fast-track, but I think these two spending all their time together helped me be okay with that given it was such a short story.

I think the only thing that really bothered me was the conflict of the story. I honestly didn't see the need for it when these two were both having enough to deal with on a personal level. It just felt like forced conflict that didn't really matter because the story would have progressed just fine without it.

So casting those negative feelings aside, I think this was another great addition to the Buckhorn fold. Gray and Lisa are endearingly cute, and I can't wait to see what her match maker cousin, Amber, has in store for us next. Although someday I hope she gets her own story, something is making me think she is going to be the last one to fall...

*NOTE* This ebook also contains last year's release of Back to Buckhorn that I have already previously reviewed, so I have not included that in this review.
