From cold feet to hot-blooded…
Former Marine and current rancher Cade Donovan left his hometown looking for a fresh start. But then Cade inherits the grocery store that his grandfather won from the O’Riley family in a poker game more than thirty years ago. The same store that caused a bitter feud between the two families. And worse still, Cade has to return home to confront his past—and share his inheritance with the enemy…the all-grown-up and sinfully tempting Piper O’Riley.
After ditching two fiancés at the altar, Piper has a reputation for being the town’s runaway bride. The irony is, Piper is woefully inexperienced when it comes to real, true physical attraction. And working with Cade is torture. The kind that can keep a girl up all night imagining naughty, delicious things. Things that Cade is more than happy to show her…
It’s all fun and sexy games…until the truth of why Cade left town comes out.
Enemies to lovers is one of my favourite tropes and Susan Meier has done it justice; I adored the latest addition to her Donovan Brothers series. From the allure of the storyline to the charm of the main and secondary characters, Chasing the Runaway Bride is a fun, sexy and sweet read.
Piper O'Reilly and Cade Donovan are more similar that they realise. Both the subject of small-town gossip, she's abandoned two fiancés at the altar whilst he never even bothered to show up for his nuptials. And with an age old feud burning between their families, the last thing they want to do is work together. He may not be around anymore, but Cade's Grandfather leaves them with no choice and it's a hardship...
"You like working with me?"
"I wouldn't go that far. Though I will admit to liking that little lust thing we have going on."
With a superb chemistry that brings flirt, teasing, snark, humour and intimacy, they were perfect together. A Stetson wearing marine turned cowboy is pretty irresistible in my world, particularly one who uses the word Darlin', and combined with a lady who'll go toe-to-toe against him, I couldn't have asked for more.
If a small-town romance with some spice is what you're after, then this is a novel I highly recommend. Can't wait to see what Susan Meier has in store for Devon.
