From New York Times Bestselling author, Kristen Proby, comes the first in an all-new trilogy in her beloved Big Sky Series!

Hannah Malone loves her new town. Despite living in Cunningham Falls for five years, she’s still considered a “move in” by most of the locals, and that doesn’t bother her in the least. She’s the “new girl”, and she hasn’t regretted it for one day. This town is her sanctuary. Her home. The one place she finally fits in and feels safe after a lifetime of being different and running from the memories and a past so far away it can’t haunt her anymore.

As the newly appointed police chief, Brad Hull has the responsibility to keep his citizens safe and to maintain order. His roots in this town are deep—five generations deep, to be exact. Cunningham Falls, Montana is his town, and being a cop and protecting what’s his is his passion. Everything’s running like clockwork until a sassy redheaded doctor moves in and disrupts the order—and Brad’s focus.

She’s not just beautiful, funny, and strong. Hannah’s everything he’s been looking for in a woman. The chemistry is undeniable, and the heat in the bedroom is off the charts. Brad knew the minute he met Hannah that she was the one for him. He’s tenacious in his pursuit of her. But when the past catches up with Hannah, will Brad be able to protect her and their hearts?

Brad Hull was born and raised in Cunningham Falls, Montana, and is now the new Police Chief. He is charming, quiet, hot, strong, and sweet. But his job is taxing and he has also seen things that deeply affect him. Hannah Malone is a transplant to this town, but has made it her home. She is an OB GYN and a complete work-a-holic. She is ruled by her anxiety and fears at times, and has a hard time relaxing.

She caught his eye a few years ago, but they missed the chance to fully connect. But now, Brad is taking his shot. They have a good rapport and smoking hot chemistry. They seem to be able to calm the other when needed.  He is steady, but also fun loving with her. She needs to find a way to loosen up and trust. They do have busy lives, demanding careers, and a few challenges. Brad was a swoonworthy, honest, sexy, and patient hero. Hannah was sweet and good for him,  but her issues could be frustrating at times. 

This is a light, cute romance with two mature, busy people trying to merge their lives. It was not full of a lot of unnecessary drama and angst. I enjoyed seeing old friends from the Love in the Big Sky series and being back in Cunningham Falls. It is a quaint setting with a tight knit group of family and friends. I am also looking forward to Brad's siblings Jenna and Max getting stories of their own. I really liked Elise's best friend, Drake as well. I am glad Ms. Proby returned to Montana and gave us this spin-off series. 

I was gifted a copy.

Brad Hull grew up in Cunningham Falls and is adjusting to life as police chief, but finds there is little time left for dating. Hannah Malone has lived there for 5 years, but has decided to call it home. She followed a friend there for work, settled in, and doesn’t want to leave.

Hannah is very career oriented. She handles her anxiety as best she can, keeping control of herself and her surroundings as often as possible. But she has other challenges in her past that she worries Brad won’t want to deal with.

I loved Brad. Though he hasn’t dated much, he knew when he met Hannah that he was interested. He thought she was dating another doctor and stepped back despite his interest. When he learns later that she is single, he doesn’t waste a lot of time making his intentions clear.

I loved returning to Cunningham Falls. Seeing Love Under the Big Sky characters settled and happy was a fun addition to this new book.

This was an easy, smooth read. I loved the handling of Hannah’s anxiety. It was real and honest. Hannah had learned to deal with it in most situations. Brad was so supportive as he learned more about her and I couldn’t love that part of the story more. I look forward to more from this small town and the character who call it home.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Someone is ringing my fucking doorbell. I was at the hospital until the wee hours, I was finally in a deep, lovely sleep, and someone is ringing the bell.
All I know for sure is, this had better not be the damn door-to-door people trying to sell me a vacuum. Or a magazine. Or Jesus.
I wrap my robe around me, stumbling toward the door. I pull it open and am surprised to find an excited Sadie and a ridiculously sexy Brad standing at my door.
“Is that coffee?” I ask.
“For you,” he confirms and holds it out to me.
“Come to mama,” I mutter and take it from his hand, taking a grateful sip. Sadie brushes past my leg, into the house, and curls up on my couch.
“She’s not supposed to be on the furniture,” Brad says.
“My house, my rules,” I reply and take another sip of the one thing in this world I’m addicted to, and give him a once over from head to toe. “You look like you got about as much sleep as I did.”
“Rough night?” he asks without confirming or denying.
“Babies,” I reply with a shrug. “You?”
He just shrugs. “Are you going to ask me in?”
“Sure.” I back up and gesture him into the room. “Sorry, I was sleeping pretty good. My energy level is about equal to a sloth on Xanax.”
“I can leave and let you go back to bed.”
His eyes roam up and down my body, reminding me that I’m just in a robe and nothing else. His green eyes are hot, and every muscle in his body is tight.
Even sleep deprived, I can tell when a man is in the mood.
“You’ve brought me coffee. I’ll never kick you out when you’ve done that.”
“I’ll remember that,” he says with a chuckle.
“Besides, I have plenty of room.” I turn and walk into my bedroom, glancing behind me to see that he’s following me. He makes a hand gesture at Sadie, which I assume means stay. “We can take a nap,” I suggest.
His lips twitch, but he doesn’t say anything when he joins me next to the bed. He takes my coffee and sets both of our cups on the bedside table.
“Is that what you want, Hannah?” he murmurs and skims his fingertips down my arms.
