Busted is book three of Shiloh Walker’s Barnes Brothers series. I love Shiloh Walker, everything I have read as Shiloh and as J.C. Daniels I love. The Barnes Brothers hit the jack pot in the genetic lottery, they are all drop dead gorgeous and excel in whatever they do. It’s a great family and I love family orientated series even big famous ones like the Barnes’.
Trey Barnes author/father extraordinaire is so caught up with the grief over the death of his wife and raising his son he hasn’t even looked at another woman he has tried he dated but nothing has felt right that is until he drops his son off at the library and meets Ressa Bliss, of course he doesn’t find out her name for a couple of months. Ressa has a past one she wishes she could forget especially the guilt, but everything she does now is about raising her little cousin. Lusting from afar on both their parts last for the better part of a year until Ressa is helping out with a writer’s convention and finally finds out who the hottie with the adorable little boy is none other than an author she loves. One hot and steamy night cement their feelings for each other but with Ressa’s past she worries about what that will do to the famous author and his even more famous brothers. She plays it off as it was just suppose to be a one night deal. Until they find out her cousin and his son are in the same Kindergarten class. Trey admits his feelings for her and how, for the first time in five years he is feeling sexual about a woman and he wants to explore the chance for the relationship. After they clear the air about everything it seems like everything is hunky dory until both of their past come out and try to tear them apart.
Overall this was a great read, what starts as a light read but has slight dark over tones but isn’t terribly dark. I loved the characters and the storyline and the past histories are great, I love the hinting at Travis’ story I can’t wait for it.
