Charly Wynn attends her cousin’s wedding in a little Nevada town and learns firsthand from six hot cowboys about the untamed charm of Wilde. Though itching to leave and licking past wounds, she finds it hard to resist the temptation of hunk Drake Strong.

The moment Drake Strong meets Charly, he vows to do whatever necessary to possess the beauty for himself and his brothers Dax and Seth. Keeping her away from his three other lusty brothers, Nate, Heath, and Tobias, is going to be tough. Though the ambitious city girl is itching to pursue her dreams, Drake is determined to convince her there's plenty of action in Wilde. Will Charly let go of old hurts and open herself up to Drake, or will the killer in the shadows destroy their only chance at love?

When Charlene Wynn heads toward Wilde to talk her crazy cousin out of marrying five men, she had no idea what this sleepy little town had in store for her!

Charly has just completed her Master’s in psychology and is headed for her dream job in Malibu, wanting to shake off the stigma that hangs on her still after a shady incident many years ago. But first she plans on having a very long conversation with her cousin. Who marries five men? Well obviously there is something in the water in Wilde, and Charly is about to get her first taste when a tall drink of water named Drake Strong comes to her rescue.

Being a walking wet dream isn’t anything out of the ordinary for cowboy Drake Strong. Yet he still has to do what his mama tells him, including towing Charly to a mechanic’s when her car dies. Expecting a stuck up book worm, he’s knocked on his butt at the fiery minx he meets. The sparks fly right away between the two. Once Drake claims her as his own, because that's what all cowboys seem to do, he just hopes she’s as open to the idea of being with his twin and younger brother. That’s right, stud muffin Drake has an identical twin!

Charly is so closed off that the moment Drake gives her his attention and shows her real affection she can’t help but open up. The trauma she went through changed her for the worse and she just needed someone to be there for her. And when Drake gives her all he has, she gives him something special in return, including her heart.

But Charly and Drake have more to deal with then falling in love. First there are Drake’s three older brothers who are a unit much like Drake, his twin and younger brother. Each unit is looking for a woman of its own and Drake knows his older brother would love Charly as much as he does. The minute Heath sets eyes on Drake’s woman, out come the claws. Secondly, a dark figure from Charly’s past comes crawling into town with menace on their mind. We’ll have to see what the plan is for this person, as we see very little of him here.

Chloe Lang creates strong characters and plot, and I find myself looking forward to the next move they will make. The people on the page are flawed, but likeable even when they make decisions that left me scratching my head. Charly is smart, she has a Masters degree afterall, so I was surprised when she made a decision that didn't seem in line with her character. In a way it kept me reading, to find her motivation. Drake as the hero has a heart of gold but I found him to be a tad pushy, but maybe Charyl needs "pushy" to step out of her comfort zone. There's a lot going on in this short story.

This book is a first in a series, so I’m going to assume this is the first of at least three books if not more. Each book would be focused on one man and Charly, this being Drake and Charly’s story. It’s not required to read the Wilde series before picking up this book, but you will need to read this book before picking up book two in the Strong Brothers series.

All in all, I'm looking forward to seeing what happens between the brothers and what Charly will decide in the end. Sexy cowboys, or living your dreams? Tough call for any girl I think! If you are a fan of menage romances, then you surely won’t be disappointed here.
