What I liked - Charli was kickass and definitely didn't need saving.
What didn't work out so well for me: I was hoping for something where Charli and Grady played off each other, where maybe they'd have their fun and have something light-hearted for awhile, and then they'd maybe see that they were falling in love with each other.
Charli's supposed to be as footloose as Grady is, but I saw none of that, which was a bit frustrating since I felt the blurb sold me a heroine that would be harder to catch. I was also expecting more back and forth between the main characters, but instead I felt that the story focused far too much on the mystery-suspense bit, to the detriment of the romance itself.
To be fair, it's definitely a case of problematic expectations based off the blurb. I wasn't expecting these two to just fall into being serious and after they did I was hoping to focus on more character development, and that just didn't happen.
"Grady Judd" isn't a bad read, but it really didn't do it for me since I felt I was reading a different book than I expected.
If there was such a thing as an urban legend in Cotton Creek it was Grady Judd. He'd broken the heart of every woman he'd ever kissed and he'd kissed a plenty. Many tried to rope him, tie him down and drag him to the altar, but Grady wasn't the marrying kind. In fact, no one was quite sure what kind of man Grady was. He showed up now and again, tended to his ranch and then would disappear just as fast and never utter a word as to where he'd been when he came home again.
He was a sexy temptation, rolled up in a fine male package, and was all too willing to deliver a night of pleasure. He was also completely unwilling to let anyone inside his impenetrable wall. It was all fun and games or nothing at all.
Until he showed back up in Cotton Creek this time to discover that he's not the only heartbreaker in town, which leads to a whole new game and an entirely new question. Could Grady Judd finally have met his match?
