Ribbon Ridge #4

Releasing November 17th, 2015

Evan Archer has always preferred peace and solitude to the loud antics of his large, hard-to-navigate family. But when Archer Enterprises needs a new creative director, Evan jumps at the chance to claim the job he’s always wanted. Moving home is easier than he expected, but Evan isn’t prepared for the stunning A-list celebrity hiding out in his family’s garage apartment.

Following a major tabloid scandal, movie star Alaina Pierce escapes to Ribbon Ridge. She’s immediately drawn to the quiet, picturesque town and the incredibly sexy—if a little quirky—Evan. He may be built like a Greek god, but he’s honest and straightforward… so different from the Hollywood types she normally dates.

Their attraction is undeniable, but Alaina can’t elude the paparazzi forever, and Evan has no interest in being in the limelight. When the secret she’s been keeping is exposed, the idea of Evan—of real love and a family like the Archers—could vanish in an instant.

Alaina is a A list actress and privacy isn't something she gets often. When pictures are leaked and it causes a scandal she decides she needs to get away for awhile until this mess dies down. Her business partner Sean suggest Ribbon Ridge would be the perfect place for her but she didn't expect to fall in love. 

Evan is a loner and has never had a real relationship. Now that he is back home he gets the job he originally wanted but he didn't plan to fall for a well known actress who he likes spending time with and understands him. He never thought he would fall in love but Alaina changes him for the better. 

I have only read the previous book in this series but I totally fell in love with the Archer family. They are fun, close and each have special qualities that make them so likable. 

I really did enjoy reading about Alaina and Evan. They were so different but yet they connected so well with one another. Alaina wasn't spoiled and Evan had a lack of filter when he spoke but they were both refreshing characters to read about. 

A good book to me is when you are reading you feel so many different emotions like anger, sadness, love, and most of all happiness. And honestly this book did that for me. It had some amusing parts but it also had an emotional feel to it. 

I absolutely loved how it ended and was completely satisfied with the epilogue. I felt it worked for them in their situation. Burke did a wonderful job in wrapping up the story and giving these two the HEA they deserved. 

I can't wait to read the next two books in this series since both brothers do not currently live in Ribbon Ridge and I can't wait to see what will finally bring them back home. 

If you love sibling books I would add this to your TBR pile!
