FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Britt!
Every new release in this series feels like coming home. I’ve been so attached to this family from the very beginning and the next generation of Gentry’s is proving to be even better than the first. Test is by far my absolute favorite so far. Derek and Paige’s story is filled with so much emotion and so much swoon it’s nearly impossible to put down once you start. I couldn’t have predicted how much I was going to fall in love with these two.
Derek is every bit a Gentry man. Strong, loving, and flawed in a way that makes him so real. He reminded me so much of his father while still being entirely different. Along with Derek I was almost just as swept up off my feet by his fun loving and hilarious brother Kellan. I’m now dying to get his story too! Paige was a sweetheart with just as much weighing on her shoulders as Derek had on his.
When a traumatic night brings these two together what grows between them is something much deeper than sparks. That doesn’t mean these two don’t have great chemistry, because they have that in spades, but the connection between them goes so much deeper. I loved every moment of Test and can’t wait to get my hands on more Gentry’s!
I flushed and tried to choke out a laugh. “It’s funny how I can’t seem to stop embarrassing myself in front of you.”
Derek shook his head like he thought I was being ridiculous. “Stop being embarrassed.”
He started moving the piles of cassettes over to the desk and then switched off the power button on the stereo. I had no idea why. Maybe he was just trying to help clean up. Then he got on the bed beside me, stretched out and extended his arm.
“Come here,” he whispered.
I obeyed. Slowly, because I wasn’t sure what he had in mind.
But Derek wasn’t after sex. He didn’t touch me while I got comfortable. Settling against his strong body seemed like the most natural act in the world. It didn’t feel dirty or even erotic. He switched off the bedside lamp, wrapped his arms around me and let me fall asleep with my cheek next to his beating heart.
And there I slept all night, more soundly than I thought possible…
