3 stars-- Bluegrass Undercover (Bluegrass Brothers #1) by Kathleen Brooks

Bluegrass Undercover was pretty good. I snagged it because hello *pets the pretty cover* and supposedly it was book one (it's not, start here) so...why not.
The gist: A new drug's targeting high school athletes and Annie's been sent in undercover as a school guidance counselor to try and figure out who is behind the new drug.  And she kinda finds herself landing the much sought after coach, too.
The Good

The town is amazing! They're nosy meddlers and so funny. But they're people who would have your back and do anything for you no matter the risk. I adored them.

And the hero's family was awesome. Big and full of sexy single alpha males. Yum! A welcoming mother figure and just good people. I wanted to know more about each of them and everyone in town.

Cade's a good guy. Solid and dependable. Doesn't rile easy and is caring. And Annie was decent, too. She's a hard worker and will do whatever it takes to get her job done. She's also a little damaged from never having a family or stable life (foster kid).

There were some pretty funny scenes, too. I love when a book can make me laugh and these two and their community did have me laughing numerous times.

The Issues 
  • Editing was rough. Using incorrect words, words mistakenly added or left out of sentences. Ex--she cooked for her husband but instead it read as she cooked her husband.  
  • Annie had a chip on her shoulder and could be hypocritical. She was pissed when Cade would try to protect her but she was constantly going on about protecting him. She also hit him once and yall know I do not approve of that at all.  
  • The villain was pretty easy to figure out unfortunately.  
  • And the sex scenes were all fade to black. Boo!
So I had a handful of issues with Bluegrass Undercover. But still...I want to read more from the series. The town won me over and I want to see what happens with them all next and how his brothers will find their HEAs.

Cade Davies had too much on his plate to pay attention to newest resident of Keeneston. He was too busy avoiding the Davies Brothers marriage trap set by half the town. But when a curvy redhead lands in Keeneston, the retired Army Ranger finds himself drawn to her. These feelings are only fueled by her apparent indifference and lack of faith in his ability to defend himself.

DEA Agent Annie Blake was undercover to bust a drug ring hiding in the adorable Southern town that preyed on high school athletes. She had thought to keep her head down and listen to the local gossip to find the maker of this deadly drug. What Annie didn’t count on was becoming the local gossip. With marriage bets being placed, and an entire town aiming to win the pot, Annie looks to Cade for help in bringing down the drug ring before another kid is killed. But can she deal with the feelings that follow?
