Bounty (Colorado Mountain #7) by Kristen Ashley @KristenAshley68
I saved this book as long as I could to start it. I have learned that
anytime I begin a Kristen Ashley read I'll be consumed. Its never a
surprise that it's always deep to my soul immersion. Deke and Justice
took me far away back to a place where friends are family and once you
are in you are there to stay. She weaves in new amazing people right
onto the tapestry of a bond of souls where you can't even see the
threads beginning or ending.
I won't rehash the plot.. It just needs to be experienced.. I'll just leave this here. There was beauty because is this authors way. There was passion because she bleeds it. There was humor and generosity. But most of all there was a bone deep slow burn falling in love romance that I simply couldn't put down. Deke and Justice had a tough road to walk down and I rooted for them the whole way. Deke was different than any other Kristen Ashley Hero and although it took me a while to warm up to him, once I did it was blazing hot, down to my toes warmth for a strong man, a good friend and one hell of a partner for Justice.
Justice was unique also and her many layers were created by family and friends. Her roots made her and her strength kept her when nobody else was there. Her gypsy ways made the best girl a guy like Deke could hope for. I think his hesitance in the beginning was just his heart not believing that someone like his Jussy could actually be there ..and be there for him. With him. It took time and it took a lot of fantastic funny conversations between these two but seriously they just fit in so many ways. I definitely count Justice as one of my favorite KA heroines ever. Music had a heavy theme and fitted the love story perfectly. I felt light in my heart and a sweet feeling of peace when the story faded. I simply always feel so blessed after a gift from this author.
