Montana Mavericks: Rust Creek Cowboys continuity series.

Rust Creek Falls in the previous month had flooded and the town is now starting to build back. Their are a lot of rebuilding projects that need to be done. Lots of people are trying to help each other where they can.
Dean and Nick Pritchett are from Thunder Canyon to help rebuild. They are carpenters and work for their father building furniture usually.
Nick gets Dean to go with him too the bar. Dean would rather stay in and read. Dean sees Shelby Jenkins and comes back the next night right before they close. He helps were when a drunk gets out of hand. Dean really likes her when her car won't start he offers to take her home if it is too far to walk her home.

Nick is careful around women after his ex-fiancé broke it off and told him her baby was not his. He gets Shelby to go on a picnic with him up by they get along find but Shelby does not tell him a lot about herself.

Nick sees a need at the daycare center. Their backyard fence and playground got destroyed in the flood. The community got the fence up but playground is too expensive right now to get. The daycare is not charging anyone for the summer to help out the community.
Nick decides that he would pay the rest of the playground and gets his brother to help build it with him. He meets a cute little 5 year old Caitlin and she wants a place outside to read. Nick sees a way that he could do that with a couple of hours. Caitlin helps Nick by handing the screws, bolts and nuts to him. Nick is surprise when her mom comes to pick her up.

Shelby is a bartender. She got pregnant when she was 16. The father got his friends to destroy her and said she slept around with lots of guys. Some people still think she is loose and look down at her still. She is careful and does not date. Her mom helps share the daycare of Caitlin when they both work at same time she goes to the daycare.

It has a great community that turns out to help each other when they can whether it is bringing food, searching for lost ones, rescuing people and animals from the flood. I want to keep going back to Rust Creek falls. I want to see who the new mayor will be.

There is one love scene that I skipped over, lots of drama, romance and cute Caitlin who is a charmer.
I was given this ebook to read and asked in return to give honest review of it by Netgalley.

Very good book. Shelby is a single mother who got pregnant in high school and then trash talked by the father of the baby. She has worked very hard to give her daughter a good life. She has earned her college degree as a teacher and would like nothing more than to leave the gossipy town behind. She meets Dean while working her job as a bartender. Because of her past she is very wary around men. As much as she is drawn to him she has no plans to get involved with another man. I really loved her independence and how she took charge of her life. She has also learned to deal with the haters. She fully expects Dean to leave her alone after he hears the gossip about her and is surprised when he doesn't. I loved the slow building of their relationship and how Shelby finally accepts that she is worth loving. I also liked seeing her finally stand up for herself to one of the worst of the gossips.

Dean and his brother have come to Rust Creek Falls to help out with the rebuilding. Dean is a very quiet kind of guy. He had health problems as a kid and spent a lot of time alone becoming something of a bookworm. Many times he'd rather stay home and read instead of going out. One one of those rare nights out he sees Shelby as she's working at the bar. He is immediately smitten. Dean is usually pretty cautious after having been hurt by a woman pretending that her baby was his. There's something about Shelby and little Caitlyn that fills the void in him. I love the way that Dean doesn't let the gossip influence him he just gets to know Shelby as she is.. He doesn't really push Shelby he is just there for her all the time. It doesn't take long for him to want them in his life forever and he starts to look at a permanent move to Rust Creek Falls. I really loved his thoughtfulness, not just with Shelby, but with so many others also.

For all that the town is gossipy and into everyone else's business, they are also there to help out when it is needed. I love all the flood help going on and also how everyone steps up when Caitlyn is missing. ( )

This is book two in the Montana Mavericks: Rust Creek Cowboys series. Dean Pritchett has come to Rust Creek Falls to help build up damaged houses following catastropic flooding that destroyed parts of the town. On a night out with his brother, he spots sexy bartender Shelby Jenkins and is immediately attracted. Shelby is a single mon with a little girl who has an undeserved bad reputation in town as a tramp. She isn't looking for a new relationship, never mind with a temporary resident.

This is a good summer read about two people who think they have different goals in life and find out they want the same thing, love, happiness, and stability. Shelby thinks her past makes her a bad bet and Dean thinks he doesn't want to settle down just yet. It was nice to see Shelby learn to stand up for what she wants and to tell the nasty gossips to get over it! Likewise, it was enjoyable to see Dean learn to love someone and open his heart to the idea of an instant family.

This is an nice series about a town in crisis that brings together different people to find love and happiness. ( )
