Can a fake date
Become the real deal?
Triplet Georgie Harrison will do anything to keep her family—including her newfound Blackwell relatives—from worrying about her. Which is exactly why she’s enlisted way-too-charming rodeo cowboy Zach Evans to be her fake boyfriend for her sister’s Montana ranch wedding. The problem is that Georgie’s not just tempted to fall for her own ruse…she’s also falling hard for the roguish cowboy she can never have.

This is book five in this series and in full disclosure, I haven't read any of the other books. Coming into a series on the last book probably wasn't the best idea. While the author did a good job of giving me some background, I had a hard time with all the characters. They would be familiar to me if I had read previous books but unfortunately, there were so many names and faces I didn't know. I had a hard time connecting emotionally to characters and events because of that. Obviously, I am going to highly recommend that you read this series in order. Having said that, I could sense the strong family bonds. These authors have built quite the family unit with the Blackwells. (I did read the original Return of the Blackwell Brothers series and really enjoyed it. This series is a spin off, continuation of that series.)
Zach and Georgie are about as opposite as two characters can get. They come from different worlds and have very different goals in life. It was interesting to watch them circle around to similar places. Zach has always wanted what the Blackwell family has. Being with them is like a dream come true for him. I think I connected the most with him and his life struggle, his desires and his dreams. He was easy to like. Georgie is a tougher nut and I didn't always understand her but I loved how kind she was to everyone, even when she struggled.
There were so many things happening in this story! The winter/Christmas setting lends itself to lots of fun family Christmas traditions and troublesome weather. There is the return of an estranged father, the birth of babies and the reconnecting of sisters. It was easy to get wrapped up in the holiday feel with the idyllic setting and warm family bonds. This is a great book to read during this month of December.
