She doesn’t believe in love, but a marriage of convenience with her best friend might change her mind.
Colt has been in love with Remi for years, but she friendzoned him a long time ago. When tragedy strikes, Remi comes up with a plan to help–she’ll marry him so he can get custody of his niece and nephew. All the odds are stacked against him, but Remi’s crazy proposal just might work.
Remi wants nothing to do with relationships, but when she sees how determined Colt is to help his niece and nephew, she can’t stand by while they’re taken from him. Her painful childhood might be locked up in the past, but she has a chance to give these sweet kids the life she always wanted. Marriage doesn’t have to mean risking her heart, right?
Being married to Remi is Colt’s dream come true, but the hurts of her past keep her at arm’s length. Can he show her that love is the path to healing?
Ahh, this was just too cute! I have been really enjoying this series and this one is my favorite so far. Better Together is the fourth book in Mandi Blake’s Wolf Creek Ranch series. Marriage of convenience is one of my favorite troups so I was really excited to read this one. And I couldn’t wait to read Remi and Colt’s story, I knew that it was going to be good.
Remi was an interesting character but I loved her. She was kind and full of life. Life had not always been kind to her and she made her mistakes, but God was kind. It was cool to read about Remi learning to trust God more and to trust Colt. I loved Remi’s relationship with Colt, he was her steady. Remi had to learn to let go of her past and trust that God was faithful through everything.
Colt was an awesome character. He had me from the beginning. I loved his heart and how he cared deeply for those around him. He was such a sweetheart to Remi and you could tell that he loved Abby and Ben, his niece and nephew. Colt had to learn to trust in God’s plan and wait on Remi.
Remi and Colt were just wonderful characters. I fell in love with them from the beginning. They were relatable and I loved watching them fall in love. I really like how they were friends first and how real their friendship felt. I felt so bad for both of them, they had been through a lot. It was sweet to read about Remi and Colt as they came together to raise Colt’s niece and nephew. They were trying their best to love the kids and each other.
The romance was lovely and I adored the kids. Abby and Ben helped make the story. They were kids and it was cute to read about them interacting with Colt and Remi. I love the family aspects of Blake’s books. I also love how Blake weaves faith so seamlessly into her books. God was at the center of her books. Remi and Colt were learning to trust in God’s plan and to go to Him when life felt hard.
Better Together is just an amazing book! I would totally recommend it! It can be read standalone but I think that it is better read as part of the series. I am so excited to read the next book. Better Together is a clean Christian contemporary, marriage of convenience, friends to more romance.
