Proceed with Caution (Ford Brothers Book 1) by Sandra Alex 

Description

He’s a heartbroken heartthrob. She’s a fugitive fiance. Sparks fly when Julia flees…right into Colton.

Colton all but wears a sign that says ‘No Women Allowed’ after his failed marriage to Pam. 

Pam promised him the world but never delivered. It’s no wonder when he meets the beautiful and intelligent Julia, he doesn’t let his heart pave the way. Colton’s love of his horse ranch, his students, his brothers and his money keep him happy. He doesn’t need or want anything else. When Julia walks into his life, Colton decides it’s best to proceed with caution, and the feeling is mutual. 

John is sexy, successful and perfect fiancé material…when he’s not controlling, delusional and downright creepy. But how do you dump a guy your loyal and loving father fixes you up with, without breaking two hearts? When Julia goes MIA to her estranged sister’s place out of state, John goes ballistic. Especially when her sister works with dreamy-eyed Colton, and Julia finds herself spending a lot of time with them. But it’s difficult to keep someone safe when you don’t know they’re in danger.  

Gun-shy, self-protective, and hiding from the truth, Julia is in no position to open her heart to anyone. Particularly when she has to look over her shoulder for her stalker fiancé every step of the way. Fearful and scarred, Julia doesn’t know what to do when her hormones wake up just at the sight of Colton. It seems no matter what door she opens, both the wolf and the sheep are there. When Julia’s past finally catches up to her, John demands her to do the one thing she can’t do…or die. 

Her loyalty and all-consuming love were the reasons why I chose her…until she made me a promise she didn’t keep.

She was the one who waited for me while I was overseas. She was the one who loved me the way nobody else did. She’s also the one who broke my heart by not keeping her promise.

I thought I was done with women for good…until Julia came along.

Afghanistan changes a man in a way nothing else can, and the women flock to me like magnets because of it…but I don’t want any of them. The way they look at me, I’d like to tear their eyes out.  

Julia doesn’t look at me like I’m a piece of meat. She also doesn’t see dollar signs when she finds out I’m a Ford boy.

Problem is, Julia doesn’t want anyone any more than I do. She’s running from something, but she won’t tell me what or whom….and then I find out the hard way.

….

Sure, running away is the cowardly thing to do. But if you were in my shoes, you might have done the same.  

Colton is the type of guy to steer clear of, at least that’s what my sister Liz says. He’s got this smouldering look that makes me lock eyes with him. But then we both look away. And it’s all good, because another man is the last thing I need…especially another man with major issues. 

When Colton finds out what I’m running from, he teaches me a thing or two about men, and not in a way I would expect.  

He’s full of surprises…especially that one kiss that leaves me breathless. It’s the last thing either of us wants…and the first thing we both need. He promised it would never happen again, but evidently his body and his heart are at a crossroads. I’m suffering from the same affliction.

My Review…..
Love triangle? Or a man and woman finding love whilst a mad man obsessed with her wants her back?! 
Colton is definitely avoiding women, they are nothing but trouble. After the last woman in his life took his heart and pounded it into the dirt! Students, horses and and his brothers are all he needs in his life.
Until he meets her….. 
Julia needs somewhere to hide, she’s hiding from a possessive fiancée, at first it was ok, he was there for her when she need him, but things are beginning to jiggle her. 
So she runs to her sister. Liz works in a bar. 
That’s where she meets Colton, he’s cute, sure, but no now way is she looking for any entanglement. She’s just escaped one man, she doesn’t need another one tell her what to do! 
Being almost the baby of the family (Wade is the youngest) Colton might have served in the military, he might have the muscles and the tattoos, but I got the impression it’s all for show, he seems like a good guy who hasn’t found the right woman yet. 
Julia I thought at first a little bit of a pushover. Letting your friends talk you into things that you don’t feel comfortable with. Even Liz takes advantage! 
First book in a five book series. Doesn’t end on a cliffhanger, so don’t think you’ll need to read the rest.
It was an easy read, a few little points I was unhappy about, but nothing that really spoils the book. 
The couple sort of flirt around one another, shy away from each other, but they are drawn towards each other. Nether want to make that first step, they are both hurting from past loves…..
Love her sister she was there even she needed her, and looks out for her. 
Only thing I did have issue with is her friend told her to leave her ring at home and wear something sexy! (you would think she wants her friend to cheat on her fiancé?) 
Colton’s brothers did have me chuckling, and hooked, so I need to find out if they get their stories. 
And what happens when John the fiancé turns up?

Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src="https://d1vbo0kv48thhl.cloudfront.net/images/featured_book_reviewer_big.png"
