The Walker Boys series centers around men from the Walker family of Buffalo Lick, Texas, all of whom love to cook. Each book is a stand-alone romance, but they are best read in order due to a continual timeline with recurring characters.
The heat isn’t only in the kitchen!
For Jake Parnell, returning home to Buffalo Lick, Texas, is painful in many ways. He’s lost his twin brother to a horrible accident, and he’s given up his own career to run the family restaurant, help to raise his now fatherless niece and nephew, and care for his pregnant sister-in-law. On top of everything else, his old rival and secret obsession, Beau Walker, still hates his guts.
Beau never expected Jake to come back to their tiny home town, but now Beau needs Jake to take his brother’s place in a televised barbecue competition between their restaurants. It’s hard for him to ask for Jake’s help, because even though he’s lusted after Jake for years, he knows that just like oil and water, they will never mix.
The impending competition and the stress take a toll on Jake, and Beau steps in to help. Sparks fly as old hurts and misunderstandings are aired at last. More than the competition is at stake, and when the smoke clears, will the passion that ignites between them have the strength to last, or will it wind up burning them both?
