I confess I read Texas Two Step first and curiosity had me picking this one up. I am reviewing them in order though. So tomorrow you’ll see that book here. Both books are free, so plan to continue on.

This book starts the Whispering Springs, Tx series with Mitch and Olivia attending college in Dallas.

It’s Olivia’s and her best friend Emily’s birthday and in order to uphold the Montgomery tradition they go to the bar where her brothers had their first legal drinks.

This is a favorite scene when Mitch joins them at the bar.

“Olivia Montgomery,” he said with a smile. “What are you doing in a place like this?”

She smiled and lowered her gaze. “Hello, Mitch. I didn’t expect to run into anyone I knew here.”

His eyebrows lifted. “Really? And why’s that?”

She shrugged.

“Ladies,” Joey, the bartender, interrupted. “I’m waiting for some identification. No I.D. and you’re out of here.”

livia turned her attention to Joey. “I’ve got it.” She pulled a Texas driver’s license from her wallet and slapped it on the bar. Her friend did the same.

Joey studied both licenses, looked at the girls, and back to the licenses. “Happy birthday, ladies. What’ll you have?”

“Today is your birthday?” Mitch asked.

Olivia nodded. “Yep. Mine and Emily’s. Oh, I don’t think you know Emily.” She turned to her friend. “Emily. This is Mitch Landry. He’s a friend of Travis and Jason.” She turned back to Mitch. “Mitch. This is Emily Miller. My best friend in the whole world.”

Emily leaned forward and held out her hand. “Nice to meet you, Mitch.”

Mitch shook her hand. “You too, Emily. Happy birthday.”


“If you three are through with your meet and greet, I do have other customers. Do you want a drink or not?”

“Ladies, this lovely grump is Joey. Joey, I’m buying this round. Give me another beer. Ladies?”

Olivia straightened her back. “I’ll have a shot of bourbon.”

“I will too,” said Emily.

Mitch laughed. “The Montgomery tradition lives. Give me a shot too, Joey. I can’t let these ladies drink alone. How about three shots of Crown Royal?”

“You got it.” Joey lined up three shot glasses and poured the Crown Royal. He put a fourth glass on the bar and filled it. “I always buy the first round for birthday girls.” He tapped his shot glass against the ones Olivia and Emily had picked up. “Salute.” He tossed back the liquor. “I’ll check back in a minute,” he said and headed down the bar to another customer.

Mitch picked up his glass, tapped each girl’s shot, and tossed his drink down his throat. When he returned the glass to the counter, he noticed both girls still had full glasses. Olivia lifted the glass to her lips and sipped. Her eyes opened wide.

He chuckled. “No, no. Toss it back. It’s the Montgomery way.”

Olivia closed her eyes, put her luscious full lips on the rim, tilted her head back, and tossed the full shot down. Her tongue darted out to lick her top lip. He almost groaned aloud.

The Montgomery brothers were going to have to kick his ass because Olivia Montgomery was the sexiest, most interesting woman he’d met in a long time. He’d be damned if he was leaving until he got to know her a little better.
