I enjoyed being back in this town with these wacky characters. It’s like an 80’s sitcom meets a modern day “RomCom.” ~ Afrodyt, Guilty Pleasures
Everyone knows the Greenleaf family puts the “Hell” in Hellcat Canyon—legend has it the only way they ever leave is in a cop car or a casket. But Glory Greenleaf has a different getaway vehicle in mind: her guitar. She has a Texas-sized talent and the ambition (and attitude) to match, but only two people have ever believed in her: her brother, who’s in jail, and his best friend . . . who put him there.
Sheriff Eli Barlow has secretly been in love with Glory since he was twelve years old. Which is how he knows her head is as hard as her heart is soft—and why she can’t forgive him for fracturing her family . . . or forget that night they surrendered to an explosive, long-simmering passion. But when a betrayal threatens Glory’s big break, Eli will risk everything to make it right . . . because the best way to love the girl from Whiskey Creek might mean setting her free forever.

As I returned to Hellcat Canyon, it all started coming back to me. The quirky characters, the small town dynamics, the random movie star sightings.
We met Glory Greenleaf in the previous novel singing her heart out and bringing down the house at Open Mic night at the Misty Cat Tavern. Everyone who meets Glory and hears her sing asks the same question: “What the heck are you still doing singing in this small town?” Only she knows the answer to that question and she’s not giving it up to anyone.
Deputy Sheriff Eli Barlow has been holding a torch for Glory since forever but is shut down from acting on it. It also doesn’t help that some of the choices he’s made because of his job left Glory holding a huge grudge against him.
There is palpable tension between Glory and Eli. There’s unfinished business between these two and as their tale unfolds you can’t help but root for them to work things out.
