From USA Today Bestselling Author Devney Perry writing as Willa Nash comes a small town Montana romance.

As Calamity’s newest resident, Everly Christian thought life in small-town Montana would be dull and tame—and she needs a little mundane after the last few chaotic years. But one night, boredom drives her to the local bar, where she finds herself sitting beside a handsome and mysterious artist.

The man is anything but dull and tame, especially in the bedroom, and when she steps out of his shower and overhears his conversation, life gets interesting again.

Reese Huxley needs a wife.

And why shouldn’t Everly be the bride?

She’s got her reasons for agreeing to the hasty nuptials—reasons she’s keeping to herself. As long as she can stop herself from falling in love with her husband, she’ll make it out of this sham marriage in one piece. But Everly has a weakness for wayward men, and the more Hux pushes her away, the more she realizes this bluff is anything but a lie.

“Reese Huxley. I shivered. The moment he’d enveloped my hand with his and told his name in that rugged voice, I’d been doomed.” — The Bluff

The Bluff by Willa Nash is the second standalone in the Calamity, Montana series. A Kindle Unlimited exclusive, The Bluff may have even eclipsed the predecessor in the series thanks in large part to the depth of emotion expressed by main characters, Everly and Hux.

If you didn’t know already that I am a big fan of Willa Nash (pen name to Devney Perry), and there really isn’t a book that I won’t read from her. In order to properly rate and review books of an author I love, I turn to a deeply personal rating system: if the story make me cry, and how invested I became while reading.

The Bluff had me fully invested throughout the entire story. I adored getting to know Everly more. Everly is a former country singer, and the best friend of Lucy—who was introduced in the first standalone of the series. While reading The Bribe is not necessary, I did love getting to know Huxley too as he became more than just a single dad. Hux is a man who is looking for redemption in his daughter’s eyes, and a man who shut the right people out of his life, and let the wrong ones in.

Everly and Huxley have explosive chemistry. I won’t say insta-love, but their relationship is one that as they started to open their hearts to each other, I fell with them. The pages flew by as I read The Bluff. This is a story where you want to sink into it and just get lost for hours. The drama, while integrated into the plot, isn’t over the top, and I think helps to define and help with the character metamorphosis in a really unique way.

If you’re a fan of small town romance, that features a bit of a broken single dad, a marriage of inconvenience and a woman who despite all the pain of her past, still loves with her entire being then look no further than this utterly bewitching new release. Congrats on The Bluff, Willa!
