- Travis by Mia Sheridan <—- JUST WENT LIVE THIS WEEKEND & FIONA LOVED IT!!
Just finished Travis by Mia Sheriden; I loved Archer a few years back; this book follows on re the redemption of Travis as he was a horrible git to Archer and Bree.
Travis has turned his life around; is a great Chief of Police, a great Uncle to Archer and Bree’s kids but at the same time he remains that little boy who was hurt by his ambitious mother and lost when he thought his father abandoned him when he was 7…..we meet Haven a bit of a drifter with her brother Easton who come to town to stay for a short time …
there is such great chemistry between Travis and Haven and the story develops as to how they are both a bit lost with their childhood; how they find themselves with similar challenges and how they grow from this as individuals and eventually when they get their act together as a couple….
the epilogue is great…really enjoyed this book; it was good to catch up also on the characters from Archer including of course Archer and Bree….
Do any of u have fans….its a roasting over here….we dont have A/Cs in our houses….i might sweat some weight off… LOL!!
