I want to be alone with a Walker!

by PeytonGG

This is the second in the Walker brother series. A lot of second books in a series seems to be weaker then the first but this is not the case with this series. Alone with You is fantastic. I laughed, I cried and I admit I swooned! You do not need to read the first book Crash and Burn but you should! Read it right now!

You Make Your Own Rules For Love

by S Lange

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I will admit I am not usually a fan of second chance books. It’s not that I don’t feel a person doesn’t deserve a second chance its all the baggage that comes with it that can be clunky and handled badly. Luckily Claire and Jake have carry on bags, filled mostly with miscommunication and misconceptions.

These two fell in love with each other in third grade. When graduation came Claire left to follow her dream of becoming an Archeologist while Jake stayed on his mothers farm. Claire didn’t want their love to become hate filled so she left, as she couldn’t see herself settling down and raising a family when she wanted to discover the world. Jake wanted a family and a life with Claire on his farm. The farm was as much of a part of him as Archeology was for Claire. Instead of trying to figure out how to make it work they both walked away from each other for seven years.

What I really liked about this book compared to the first one in the series was the depth of the characters. You could feel the excitement when Claire discovered a new artifact you lived her discovery with her. With Jake you felt how grounded the farm made him you felt his to the animals and the pleasure and joy he felt in this slower paced world.

This story you get the strong sense of family that both Claire and Jake feel towards their respective families and towards each other. You have fully developed characters with depth and soul. You finally get to know the Walker brothers as caring men with good hearts instead of the bravado of book one. You feel their shared grief from losing their mother and the healing that is slowly taking place in all of them after the loss of the person that literally saved them with her love.

You laugh, you cry and you feel the anguish as each character is going through it. You understand both Claire and Jake’s side of the dilemma of wanting to have everything but afraid to take a risk. Having to make a choice of trying to follow the status quo or forging your own scary path.

The author has done an excellent job of giving you characters that you care about, and connect to with story two. Book one for me was not as compelling and this story has definitely made me look forward to the other books in the series and I hope they continue along this line.

What A Man

by rainbowtourist

I received this book via Booksprout and voluntarily read an arc for a fair and honest review. This book begins just like all the other Walker Brothers books begin....at the Klasky house. This is the day Jake receives his letter from his late, adopted mother. Jake is the gentle giant of the Walker clan. He loves the ranch where he came to as a boy and has no desire to live a city life. Without even needing to open his card Jake already knew what he had written inside many years ago...Claire Miller. She was his childhood sweetheart and love of his life but she left him almost seven years ago. Jake needed a wife that would be his partner in every sense and after his mother and claire there was nothing Jake loved more than his ranch. That's why Claire left...she needed to pursue her dreams of becoming an archeologist. Being the wife of a rancher was not the future Claire wanted. Claire was on a dig in Brazil when she got a call from her mother that her dad had been thrown by his horse, Widow maker (having King Joffrey GOT flashback) and her mother needed her to come back home to Colorado. Claire hasn't been back to the ranch since she left Jake all those years ago. She almost wished Jared hated her now because she still had love for him and hating her would make this visit less painful for Claire. Being the kind hearted man that Jake was, he offered to board Claire's family's horses (free of charge) u till her father could get back on his feet. Before Claire had announced she was leaving Colorado, Jake had been "all in" he had even purchased a diamond for her. That very same diamond was still in his drawer seven years later. Claire made her choice and Jake and the ranch were not in her future. She wanted to travel, be an adventurer and she did it. Now having to spend three weeks in Colorado to help out her mother wasn't going to change that. Claire also has an interview for a job, post graduation, in Denver but she won't allow herself to be that close to Jake Walker so she's hoping that a job in California will be in her future. Here's the thing about reading this Walker Brothers series, they're addictive...the men are strongly influenced by the woman who raised them. These men respect the women in their lives. They live to pamper and put their women on a pedestal. They just love differently from all the alpha heroes that we read about. My favorite parts of all of these books are the times the men are together. I could easily read a book just about this brotherhood. Claire is not my favorite heroine of this series (so far) I just have book 4 to read. Claire has this attitude about her like a simmering pot just waiting to boil. There are moments I just plain don't like her. But Jake is what makes this book as great as it is. He's the guy you want your daughter to marry. I can't say enough good things about this series. I'm sad their mom only adopted four boys..lol..I could read about these guys forever.

Only Wanna Be With You

by Bibliofiles13

*** I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. ***



If I thought that Crash and Burn, the first book was an emotional rollercoaster, I was dead wrong. This book, this book though! Oh where do I start people? Alone With You made me cry so hard one minute, then I'd be chuckling the next. I would be crying because of the heartbreak of what the characters were going through losing someone and then they would turn around and make me laugh so damn hard I would almost spit my drink out. Now this wasn't just with the Walker brothers losing their mom, this is the heartbreak that happens throughout the book. Just also funny moments that happened between the characters that were just way too funny not to laugh at.

 The Walker brothers are seriously hilarious, it honestly makes me a little envious that I do not have them as siblings to tell you the truth. All of them bring their own sense of humor to the table that just makes it all great and it is so funny to listen to them go at it when the get together. 

So to say the least this book was emotionally draining. It was beautiful but damn woman! Give a gal some warning next time that the second book in the series is going to be more intense than the first book so I can prepare myself emotionally. I was happy with how it ended but by the time I was done with the book I wanted to go to bed because I felt emotionally wrecked like I had been through the wringer. Sometimes it can be really rough being an empath but I will give this the 5 stars it deserves. Definitely give this book a try it is worth the blood, sweat and many, many tears.
