Story Overview:
They say that no one has secrets in a small town—these women prove them wrong.

Eight brand-new stories from some of Australia's hottest writers in Australia's hottest genre. From the bar stools of the local pub to the wide open plains of the biggest stations in the world, these tales travel the dusty roads to the heart of Australia and the women who understand how to work hard—and play even harder.

In the latest in the wildly successful Secret Confessions series from Escape Publishing, the women of Down & Dusty invite you into their lives—and their bedrooms.

Casey Cooper left her husband and the small town of Milpinyani Springs in her dust a year ago, vowing never to return. But a favour to a friend finds her back in town—and back in her husband’s garage, where he offers her a proposition too sexy to refuse. A naked Joel has always been the one thing Casey can’t resist—but can her heart handle the heat?

My Quickie Review:

This is a very short story so I'm just going to do a quick review for it. This is a very sweet, very readable story about a couple with a second chance...even if Casey doesn't realize that this is what this is. She thinks she's home to get the divorce papers signed. But Joel has other plans...he wants to win her back. 

Like I said the story is very short...you can easily read it in under an hour, so there's a lot of back-story and emotion that's inferred. These are two people who were very much in love. They just hit a snag in what they found important in life. Since then, Joel has realized that Casey had a point. But that love and chemistry is still there between them. (Note: this may be a short story, but it definitely doesn't lack in the hot sexy times.)

It was a fun little diversion. As usual, Rachael Johns's writing is completely engaging and entertaining. I love her style. I just wish that more of her books were released in the US. But in the meantime, I just enjoy gems like this that is released here and take an afternoon to escape to Australia. Maybe someday I'll get to go there in real life...not just the incredibly fictional world Rachael Johns creates in the ranch lands of the Outback.
