Miranda “Rand” Coleman has seen the way love can wreck a person and wants absolutely no part of it. When her granddaddy dies suddenly, he leaves a clause in his will that has her married in three months or she loses her inheritance. Unwilling to give up the Double C Ranch, she starts to set her eyes towards the eligible men in town, with little luck in finding a man she can stand for a minute let alone a year. Until she sets eyes on the new veterinarian and enlists the help of her womanizing best friend, Jake, to help.
Jake Hansen is a single guy who likes his women pretty and uncomplicated, with no plans to settle down anytime soon. When he decides to help Rand hook her man, he has no idea the effect watching Rand change would have on him. Especially when she starts letting her gorgeous brown hair down and showing off a body he didn’t even know she had. Before too long, Jake isn’t just lusting after his best friend, he’s feeling downright possessive. But when it comes down to the wire, will he get over his issues and step up to the alter…or lose the only woman he was ever meant to love?

First I want to thank Literati for allowing us a copy of this book so we could bring you this review.
Man did I like this story… it is so sweet and feel good. I know I have a soft spot for these best friends finding love in each other stories, so it’s no surprise to me that this was another one I just devoured.
When Rand’s grandfather passes away and leave a stipulation on his will that she needs to marry in three months or the ranch that he owned and she loved and lived in most of her life will go to a cousin that only wants to sell it she turns to her two best friends for help.
Though Red loves her and would do anything to make her happy, Jake turns out to be the one that she completely falls for.
After a suggestion by Red over Rand’s situation, he starts to see her in a completely different light. He no longer sees her like the girl that used to get into mischief with him and Red but as the woman that she keeps hidden under flannel shirts and work jeans. He starts to notice that she isn’t just one of the guys but as a sexy female.
Jake’s suggests that they pretend to have something more going on to help her find a man to marry, little does he know that he will never be able to let her go with someone else.
There are other characters I can’t wait to read more about and, know their books will come in the future…
