Fall With Me (Sugarland Creek #3) by Brooke Montgomery ~ Book Review


A Dislike to Lovers stand-alone from small-town romance author Brooke Montgomery about a barrel racer who loses her memory and the rowdy cowboy she once hated but no longer remembers…

I've hated Landen Hollis for the past eleven years.

It's no secret to anyone around us that I don't like him, but no one knows why. I can't tell them or I'd risk my pro barrel racing career that I love. Being at the top of my game and on the way to winning it all, he's the last person I need interfering.

It's bad enough that he's one of my trainers and unavoidable, but he relentlessly seeks me out and pushes my buttons.

Even when I nearly choke to death, he's there, saving my life.

We're the opposite in every way. I thrive on routine and sticking to it.

He's a playboy who never has serious relationships or commits to anything besides annoying me.

But then everything takes a turn for the worse when I get a concussion and forget who he is.

My world flips upside down when I wake up not recognizing the sexiest man I've ever seen—a six-foot-something, blue-eyed cowboy who's looking at me like I'm his dream girl.

He tells me we shouldn't get close because it's only a matter of time before I get my memory back. And although I can't remember why I hated him, I want to roll the dice and see where it takes me.

When flashes of the past resurface, and I start to remember everything, my life unravels from the secret I've been keeping—and what I never wanted him to know.

But a murder scandal always stirs up gossip in a Southern small town.

Landen Hollis went from Night to Day once he laid eyes on Ellie. She turned his world upside down and wouldn't give him the time of day. Sure, she's a little younger than he is, and she despises him for something she refuses to tell him about, but that's okay; he can wait for her to change her mind about him.

I had a blast getting to know Landen and Ellie better in this book. If you have read prior books in the series, you'll know that Landen is one of the Hollis' who works at Sugarland Creek Ranch and Equine Retreat, his family's business, and, with his sister Noah, helps teach up-and-coming barrel racers.

The prologue lends a LOT of insight into the book, but some readers may choose not to read this part of the book due to the content warning of a traumatic death shown on the page (drowning) and the mention of suicide, which I understand can be triggering to some. If you skip this section, you will not be lost, but it may take a little longer to understand why Ellie is so harsh towards Landen.

I am enjoying this series and look forward to the other Hollis siblings finding their HEAs. I recommend this book to readers who enjoy Contemporary Romance, Age Gap Romance, Dislike-to-Lovers Romance, Small-Town Romance, Grumpy/Sunshine Romance, or He Falls First Romance.

Happy Reading!!!
