Overall Rating: 5
Behind the Scandal was a book filled with gut wrenching scenes and love that transcends all.
This is the second book to the Reluctance series and it focuses on Taylor Reese, Kyren's younger brother.
When Taylor was found in his office overdosed on drugs, his father sent him to his uncle's ranch to cure his addiction. There she meets Libby, a single mother who was the trainer for the horses on the ranch. They started out disliking each other but it changed when they and the time to spend time. But with the secrets between, their relationship will have a rough road in front of them.
Kyren started out as a spoiled brat who always gets what he wants. He was irritating and the way he acted like he was always the boss wasn't a great character in a leading man. After spending some time on the ranch, he changed gradually and started to act mature. Libby was a very strong woman who will do everything to protect his son Levi.
The way the plot progressed was great since it wasn't too fast or slow. I loved how their was an added action to the book though short, it added a different flavor to the book. A really great contemporary romance worth reading.
