It’s always a bittersweet moment when I turn the final page of the last book in a series – and Gideon was no exception. Most of us have known that Gideon and Brittany were destined but it seems Brittany never got the memo as she held onto her hurt feelings from their short teenage romance. And Gideon was too convinced he had it all wrong with his feelings. Watching this couple work their way through their feelings was fun and, at times, a little sad.
Gideon was a delightful transition novel in that everything that was the ranch now changes hands over to Gideon and Brittany. It gave a much stronger feeling of the responsibility of each brother as well as their mother and father over the years. No one truly understands how much someone else really does – until it’s their turn to take over the duties.
I have enjoyed every moment I spent with this family and the boys at the ranch – I’m rather sad to see them go. I’m hoping at some point in the future we’ll get to see the fine men that Nick, Hunter, Michael and the other boys have grown into thanks to the love and fresh start they got at the McClain Boys’ Ranch. I would highly recommend this series to any Romance reader, no matter what time frame you most enjoy. Heartfelt stories and likable, believable characters. You’ll become addicted to this one.
