The FINAL NOVEL in the bestselling SIX PACK RANCH series by New York Times Bestselling Author Vivian Arend.
There’s no distance you can run to escape the past.

Too stubborn to face his sins, Jesse Coleman bolted from the Six Pack Ranch, only to fall straight into the arms of a beautiful stranger. Twelve hours later, the seductive firebrand is nothing but a whiskey-laced memory—but one powerful enough to convince Jesse tracking down his elusive lover is worth the effort.

Darilyn Hayes figured it was her lucky night when the sexiest cowboy in Alberta interrupted her annual drink-until-I-fall-over wake. At least until four weeks later when she discovers she’s pregnant and her one-night-stand is nowhere to be found. Still, as she’s shared with her devoted blog readers, Dare has dealt with life’s not-so-gentle surprises before. She’ll make it on her own.

When an internet picture gone viral leads to their reunion, Jesse’s floored by Dare’s news. She’s very clear she’s not looking for a commitment, but screw that. He’s going to do the right thing by her and his unborn kid. The fact they lit the sheets on fire is a bonus, but with a baby on the way, both their lives are gonna change.

Jesse’s got a ton of family to reconnect with, including his estranged twin. Dare holds family loosely—even though she loves them—because she knows too well how fragile life can be. Between her and Jesse, they’ve got enough baggage to open a store.

But they still have a shot at forever—if they’re willing to fight for it.

This final novel in the series contains the following:
A sexy, dirty, cocky-as-hell prodigal son Coleman with massive bridges to rebuild. A woman able to see to the heart of the matter yet bold enough to speak the truth. A family of extraordinary resolve and endless love. A wedding or two. And babies—oh lordy, the babies…

Liza's Review:

I've enjoyed each story in the Six Pack Ranch series and adore the Coleman clan. While I hate to see the series come to an end, I feel like Ms. Arend did an amazing job with Rocky Mountain Home.

I adored Jesse and Dare together. I loved how they hooked up and it made me laugh out loud that Dare ended up pregnant. It was also sweet that once Jesse found Dare again, he jumped right in to be there for her. I loved they absolutely couldn't keep their hands off each other and I fell more in love with them as a couple the longer they spent together. 

I loved that after Dare opened up about her past, Jesse was more inclined to take her home to meet his family. After he had basically just run out on them, I was happy to see him being welcomed back, but also given a really hard time too. With brothers it wouldn't have made sense for them not to give him a hard time after disappearing. I really loved that with Dare's help, Jesse finally saw he was being a complete and total tool about the past and his misplaced feelings of guilt. I really loved how Dare basically smacked him in the head to make him think clearly. 

I really love how the Coleman clan is so accepting of new members to the family. Dare became family as soon as she arrived on Coleman land and it was so sweet so see her connect so quickly with all the women. Honestly the only part of the book that bugged me was Jesse's harping on his reason for leaving his family. I just felt like it went on way too long and I wanted to hit him the head for harping on it for so long.

Rocky Mountain Home was a wonderful wrap up to the Six Pack Ranch series. I also loved that it set readers up for a new series. Ms. Arend once again gives her readers a sexy and emotional romance and I highly recommend it.
