Review: Smooth Talking Texan (The Rossis of Whiskey River #2) by Katherine Garbera

He’s her best friend, but she wants so much more…

Barrel racer Colby Tucker has never said no to her best friend and secret crush, Olivier Rossi. When the handsome and charming rodeo clown asks her to attend his brother’s wedding as his pretend fiancée, she reluctantly says yes. This might be her last chance to either nudge Olivier into falling in love with her or finally get him out of her system.

Olivier's proposition to Colby was impulsive. But she’s the one person in his life he could count on and—unlike his family—Colby never judges. But from the moment they begin “practicing” their parts, Olivier knows he’s in trouble.

Suddenly Olivier wants more than a fake relationship. But is Colby only playing a part or are her feelings as real as his?


My Review:

From fake fiancé to true love.

What happens when two friends become a fake engaged couple?  In this case, Colby Tucker, was already in love with Ollie Rossi, but he friend zoned her from the start.  When Ollie asks Colby to pretend to be his fiancé, for his brother’s upcoming wedding and Whiskey River’s Boots & Bangles Gala, Colby agrees.  During their time together, Colby figures she will either make Ollie fall in love with her or she will finally get him out of her system for good, even if it means her heart would be broken. But Colby didn’t realize Ollie secretly had a thing for her too.  He was just afraid to act on it.  Something happened in the past that very few people knew about.  It was the reason Ollie preferred one nighters with buckle bunnies after the rodeo, instead of a steady relationship with a woman.

This was an emotional story.  As I learned more about Ollie, it made sense why he was standoffish when it came to women.  I was so happy when he finally opened up about his past.  But there were still a few obstacles that Colby and Ollie would have to pass before they would finally get their happily ever after.  This is a great addition to the Rossis of Whiskey River series.
