“Everyone thought college sweethearts Bex Holmgren and Hayden Archer were headed for the altar… until a tragic accident sent young Bex running from a future she wasn’t ready to claim. But when she’s offered her dream job at Archer Brewing, Bex can’t pass up the chance to reconnect with the big, crazy family that once welcomed her with open arms—and the one man she’s never stopped loving.
When he returns home after a year in France, Hayden is less than thrilled to find his ex-girlfriend working for his family’s company. He’s finally moved on, and being around her rekindles long-buried feelings he’d rather ignore. But Bex isn’t the same girl he knew—she’s more mature, more beautiful, more tempting than ever—and he can’t resist the pull of the intense passion he’s only ever shared with her.
Have five years changed them enough, or are they doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past? The only thing Bex knows for sure is that for her, Hayden is still the one.” – Amazon
Having read the previous five books in the Ribbon Ridge series by Darcy Burke and really enjoying them, made for high hopes for You’re Still the One, the last book in the series. Burke did not disappoint!
We finally get the romantic story of Hayden, the only single child in a family of sextuplets. I don’t want to say that Burke left the best for last, because the rest were excellent, but the wine lover in me found the subplot of opening a winery very enjoyable to read.
Of course, you know Hayden and Bex get together at the end, but it’s the sweet story of lovers reuniting along with the very steamy scenes that makes this series finale so tantalizing. They have some bumps, and Burke shows once again how essential communication is in a relationship. I love how she got the rest of the family in on trying to get them back together. In previous books there were cases where the family didn’t like the partner or they kept the relationship hidden for most of the book, so this was a great change.
If you enjoy contemporary romance with fantastic character development and a family you will wish was your own, then you need to read The Ribbon Ridge Series.
