Jack Barnes and Sam Fleetwood have been best friends since they met in foster care. They share a business as cattle ranchers and a house. All they need now is a woman to share. The men are sure they’ve found that woman when Abigail Moore returns to Willow Fork, TX.

Abby left her hometown twenty years before under a cloud of scandal. She’s raised a daughter, forged a new life for herself, and is ready for the next phase when she meets the handsome cowboys. They’re a dream come true; Jack is the sexy Dom, and Sam the playful lover. It’s everything she’s ever fantasized about. There’s only one problem. She’s still not welcome in Willow Fork, and someone is willing to kill to keep her away.

“She was legendary” Abigail Moore has returned home but no one is surprised that her welcome is less than warm. Luckily for Abby, Sam and Jack aren’t from Willow Fork and are more than willing to welcome her into their lives and their bed since she’s already claimed their hearts.

So you say you like your alpha male tough and determined on the outside but vulnerable on the inside? Let me introduce you to Jack Barnes. What a terrifically complex character. Jack had a childhood from Hell. Having grown up in one foster group home after another he learned quickly he had to appear tough or get hurt. He also realized early on that he would have to take care of Sam. Sam is the antithesis of Jack. Where Jack is coarse and demanding, Sam is like a eager little puppy that wants to play and to please. “Closer than a brother” only begins to describe the multi-faceted relationship between Sam and Jack.

Ms. Oak didn’t scrimp on character development with her heroine either. Thanks to some small minded townsfolk, Abby has enough self doubt and insecurities to last a lifetime. She also has a wonderfully supportive mother and a best friend who doesn’t hesitate to interfere on her behalf. One of the aspects of this story that made it a winner for me was the easy and honest communication between Abby and the men. While Abby worries that her reputation is going to be damaging to Jack and Sam’s business she makes a concerted effort into letting them know what she wants and not denying herself the pleasure that they offer.

There is so much more about this book that I would love to comment on including how well Ms. Oak created the mentally unstable villain but it would be to easy to spoil a this very emotionally sweet, sexy and tension filled story. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Small Town Siren and if, like me, you just couldn’t let the story end with their HEA you’ll want to read the follow up Siren of the City as well.
