There’s a budding romance on Butler Mountain, but in the hornets’ nest known as the Abbott family, keeping a secret is no easy feat…
Colton Abbott and Lucy Mulvaney have a secret. Colton’s nosy siblings have begun to put the pieces together, but it’s not like Lucy to keep things from those closest to her—especially her best friend, Cameron, who recently moved to Vermont to live with her true love, Will. But Lucy isn’t about to tell Cam she’s having a fling…with Will’s brother.
Flitting between New York and Vermont is exhausting, so Lucy is looking forward to a long weekend with Colton at the Abbott family lake house in Burlington. Too bad Will and Cameron have the same idea, and once Colton and Lucy are caught red-handed (and red-faced), will their clandestine romance lose its appeal or will their secret beginnings be the start of something lasting?

My I Saw Her Standing There Review ...
I do adore this series and these beta men, who are gorgeous and sweet although sometimes too sweet. However, these Abbots and there meddling ways are hilarious and with each book you fall more in love with the Abbotts
Here we finally get to find out what the dear sexy mountain man Colton Abbott is hiding from his family and at the same time we get to continue to see the growth of the others, while getting a hint of what is instore for from the other Abbotts.
However, when I read this I had a gamut of emotions throughout.
To start with:
Me about Colton Abbot
Me about Lucy Malvaney
The story is based upon the fact that Lucy lives in NY and Colton lives in Vermont. They fall in love but don't see how they can move forward. Colton holds firm to finding a solution where Lucy holds firm to guarding her heart.
As their relationship continues I got more and more frustrated with Lucy.
The more she wavered
The way she walked away
The too quick of resolution
Colton's idea of compromise
I did like this story but I definitely didn't love it as Lucy never wormed her way into my heart. Which was sad for me because that's what lost part of the story for me. All the Abbotts and their partners are fantastic but Lucy not so much. Hopefully, as the series continue and we continue to see the growth of these two, that she'll eventually grow on me. Finger crossed but let's be honest and focus on more important things like, I'm so curious as how Hunter and Megan are going to play out.
3 Didn't love Lucy so much thumbs up!
