Sometimes love has a plan of its own…
Brie Davis came to Mirabelle, Florida, for one thing: the funeral of her birth mother—a woman she never had a chance to know. Now Brie must sort through her mother’s life to get the answers she was denied. She plans to leave as soon as she can…except the sexy veterinarian makes Brie’s pulse beat faster than she’s willing to admit.
Finn Shepherd knows Brie’s only in town for a short while, but he can’t stay away. Instead he finds himself looking for more reasons to keep her close. Finn’s already had his fair share of heartbreak, yet Brie makes him want to take that risk again. Now all Finn has to do is convince her to take a chance on him…before she disappears from his life forever.

Sweet, Sexy with a dash of small town drama!
When we first meet up with Brie, she comes to Mirabelle for one thing and one thing only; the funeral of her birth mother. She never had the chance to meet her and doesn’t consider her “mom” and from what she can tell from the local townfolk, her birth mother wasn’t the nicest lady. So, you see, Brie only planned to be in town for just a short time, but fate had other plans for her. When Brie finds out her mother left her entire will to Brie, she finds herself not only confused, but wanting to also stay a while….From the moment Finn laid eyes on Brie, he knew he had to have her. He’s had his heart broken before, but not even that is enough to keep him away. The pull Finn feels for Brie is enough to make him want to jump. Will Brie jump at the chance of love as well? Or will she leave Mirabelle behind in a cloud of dust?? There is only one way to find out….
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Untold is my first book by this author and boy did I pick a good first book. Yes, this is the 7th book in the Country Roads Series, but I promise you, you can read this book as a stand-alone novel.
Untold is a great small town read. I loved the story-line and the small town attitude; everyone knowing everyone and always having to give their own two cents. I fell in love with the characters instantly and wanted to know more about them and just had to see where their story was going to take me. I really enjoyed Brie and Finn together. I loved the pull between the two of them and boy did they ever burn up the pages. I found myself totally and easily lost in Brie and Finn’s story and could not wait to see how it was all gonna play out.
Untold was a really enjoyable read. I easily finished it in just one sitting. As I previously stated, this is my first book by this author and I for one can not wait to check out more books from this author in the future.

“Are you leaving soon?”
“In a bit. I want to see the end of the game.”
“Really now?” He leaned in close to her again. And for what was probably the fiftieth time that night she could smell the clean masculine scent that clung to him. Soap and maybe a little aftershave combined with him. He smelled incredible.
So. Damn. Good.
“Yeah, I’m a Stampede fan now. I’m in it to win it.” She couldn’t stop herself from leaning in a bit closer herself.
“Commitment, I like it.”
“Yeah.” His smile grew and his eyes got more intense, the blue getting deeper. “It’s not the only thing I like either.”
“What else do you like?” Her voice dropped low as she spoke. Oh God, the more time she spent with him, the more he affected her. The closer he got to her, the more he affected her. The more he looked at her, the more he affected her.
He just affected her.
“About you? The list keeps growing, and growing. Give me twenty minutes and I’d be happy to tell you about it. In great detail.”
Her stomach flipped and the air in her lungs caught. This time her inability to breath had nothing to do with suffocating pressure. “What happens in twenty minutes?” She somehow managed to ask.
“The game is over.” He turned just a little bit so he could incline his head toward the TV, not taking his eyes off of her while he did it.
“You don’t need to stay here? Until closing?”
“Nope, just came in to help with the rush during the game. I’m free after that.”
“Right,” she nodded slowly, her stomach doing a summersault. “And if I said yes? What happens then?”
He moved back so that he was standing directly in front of her again, leaning in close. The nearness of him combined with the way he was looking at her and the topic of conversation—that she was 99.9% sure was one about them having sex—was making her pulse race. And that wasn’t the only thing he was doing to her. It was taking everything in her not to squirm in her seat. She somehow managed to subtly press her thighs together. It was all she could do to combat the swelling ache.
About the Author
Shannon Richard grew up in the Florida Panhandle as the baby sister of two overly protective but loving brothers. She was raised by a more than somewhat eccentric mother, a self-proclaimed vocabularist who showed her how to get lost in a book and a father who passed on his love for coffee and really loud music. She graduated from Florida State University with a BA in English Literature and still lives in Tallahassee where she battles everyday life with writing, reading, and a rant every once in a while. Okay, so the rants might happen on a regular basis. She’s still waiting for her Southern, scruffy, Mr. Darcy, and in the meantime writes love stories to indulge her overactive imagination. Oh, and she’s a pretty big fan of the whimsy.
