When Erin Poletti pulls her car into the thousand acre Rydell River Ranch in River’s End, Washington, looking to stay with the brother she detests, she only intends for it to be a pit stop on the way to the rest of her life. After her mother’s suicide, Erin has no choice but to seek out her brother, where he works as a ranch hand, as she is left penniless, homeless and for reasons she will share with no one; without the basic skills to navigate her life. Ranch owner Jack Rydell watches her pull in and knows that trouble has come to his ranch, his three brothers, his two sons, and most of all: to himself.
Erin has a short lived relationship with Jack’s youngest brother, until unforeseen circumstances leave Erin nearly destitute on the ranch, and finally reveals the secret Erin has so desperately hidden. And only then does Jack finally begin to know the woman whose presence has so disturbed his life. Eventually, Erin finds a job, and starts to work with Jack and his horses in order to repay the debts she feels she owes him. But the longer Erin is there, Jack begins to wonder if he can resist the woman he now knows, despite everything that stands between them.
River's End begins when Erin's mother dies and Erin has no where to go, so she finds the last place she heard her brother was. Not that Erin and her brother are close, or even like each other, but she has no where else to go. She never expected to find a ranch with several brothers living on it, especially not Jack, who she knows she should stay away from, but he can't seem to leave her along.
These two have a strange relationship, and it gets worse when Erin has no idea what's going on around her, or what to do next. But, along the way she must figure it out if she's going to survive from then on.
This book started out interesting, and slightly intense. But, then the same conversations kept happening over and over again, and it was very annoying.
Also, I really didn't like Erin, or Jack, and I had a hard time connecting to either of the characters.
Other than the strange drama that happened this book was pretty much rinse and repeat over and over again. I felt like if there had been more depth to the story it would have been better, but alas it wasn't.
This one was just not for me, and over all I really didn't like it.
