|BEST OF THE BEST|
Tanner Layne and Raquel Merrick fell in love young, hard and fast and both of them knew a beautiful life they thought would be forever.
Until Rocky left Layne, no explanation, no going back.
Layne escapes The ‘Burg only to come back years later because his ex-wife has hooked herself to the town jerk and Layne needs to make sure his sons get raised right. Layne manages to avoid Rocky but when Layne gets three bullets drilled into him while investigating a dirty cop, he can’t do that because Rocky stops avoiding Layne. They make a deal to work together to expose the dirty cop but they have no idea the strength of their enduring attraction or the sheer evil at work in The ‘Burg.
As Tanner Layne and Raquel Merrick play their game and dance around the pull that draws them together, Layne has to discover the dark secrets buried so deep in Rocky’s heart she doesn’t even know they’re there at the same time untangle a sinister web of crime so abhorrent it has to be stopped... at all costs.
And to do it, Layne has to enlist everyone, including his ex-CIA mentor, Rocky’s detective brother, the town’s unpredictable informant and Layne’s two teenage sons all the while stopping Rocky from doing something crazy and keeping their game secret so Layne won't get himself dead.
Every book I have read so far from Kristen Ashley has made me a bigger fan!! I love her style of writing and how she is able to pull the reader into the story from the beginning and never let go. Golden Trail is no different and I absolutely loved it. This book was different then the others I have read from Ashley as it is told only through Layne's point of view. Not many books are told through the heroes point of view only and that definitely drew me into the story and bonded me with Layne's character. I adore Rocky and was waiting impatiently through out the book for Ashley to tell the reason why Rocky left Layne all those years ago!! The secondary characters in this book are great and draw you further into the story!! This also has one of the best epilogues I have ever read!! Love this book!! Another great addition to my bookshelf and definitely a reread!! :)
