RIVERBEND GAP by Denise Hunter, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"How could one little kiss cause so many problems?"

It didn't start out that way. . . but it did start . . . with a harrowing cliffside car accident and a knight-in-shining-armor deputy who literally talked Katelyn Loveland off the edge of disaster. . . only to find out that Cooper Robinson was her boyfriend's brother. Talk about coincidence.

"Why couldn't he have met her first?"

Cooper would never even consider hurting his brother Gavin, so dousing his fire of attraction to Katie was the first order of business, except that she kept showing up on his radar. Circumstances kept throwing them together, she was so easy to talk to, and his family absolutely adored her. Of course they did. But eventually things came to a head, and boy did they ever!

A sweet love triangle of a story, by definition somewhat predictable, but written by an accomplished author who knows how to begin a story and definitely how to end one!

BackCover Blurb:
She came in search of the family she’d always wanted—and found the kind of love she’d never dared imagine.

When Katelyn Loveland’s car veered off a winding Appalachian Mountain road, she thought she was done for. That is until Cooper Robinson, local sheriff’s deputy, came to her rescue. And though Katie narrowly escaped her brush with death, she still fell. Hard.

She wasn’t the only one. But soon Cooper learns that the woman he’s more attracted to than any he’s ever met is his brother’s new girlfriend—and therefore unquestionably off limits. Yet, despite their best efforts, Cooper and Katie can’t seem to avoid running into each other. Or ignore the undeniable chemistry between them.

As they grow closer, Katie shares secrets from her past and the real reason she moved to their small North Carolina town. She also wins over Cooper’s welcoming and bighearted family. But they don’t know that her feelings for Cooper keep growing—all while she’s dating his brother. Soon the stakes of their emotional connection become higher than either could have imagined.

Katie stands to lose the first family she’s ever had, and a scandal could doom Cooper’s campaign for sheriff. Suddenly they find themselves on the edge of another precipice—and they’re forced to make a decision that could change their lives forever.
