Can two divorced dads get a second chance at a redneck wedding?

When Reid Porter agrees to be his best friend’s man of honor, he never considers that his ex, Mateo, will be there too. Which is ridiculous, because Jennifer is marrying Mat’s brother. Reid would never let Jen down, though, so he finds himself at the Leaning N Ranch with his two daughters and a whole lot of baggage about seeing Mat again.

Mat loves his baby brother and would do anything for him, including face the love of his life, whom he’s sure has moved on. When he and Reid come face-to-face after more than two years apart, they realize they’ve never let go. Now they have to do what they never could before—balance work, home, and children, while finding a way to come back around to each other’s love.

What if you let go of something for the wrong reasons?  What if you never really let go in the first place?  This is what Reid Porter and his ex Mateo are facing when they show up to participate in a wedding on the Leaning N Ranch.  The first and last chapters let the reader catch up with past characters in the previous Leaning N books, but this can easily be read as a stand alone.  What I loved about this story was that even though these two men were facing each other for the first time since separating, it was obvious that the love they had was still present.  The hardest part for them was finding a time to talk about what happened and to take the brave steps to also talk about what they want in the future.  With all the distractions of the wedding, family, and the cutest distractions of all, their two girls, these two still find a way to find their way back to each other.  Their daughters are the cutest and most precocious little girls.  The dialogue between the dads and their girls was easily my favorite part of the book.  I would find myself smiling as I read their interactions.  This is a quick read and was a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.  It definitely was a little bit of sunshine.
