I can usually read series out of order but if you read Curtis' story without having read some or all of the series, it will give you a very different perspective, one that's not entirely in keeping with the series. Well, it DOES keep with the story, of course, for those who have read AI, and is a must-read in that regard. I loved reading about the parents, Curtis & Lorrie. Their story is tender and perfect and telling in all the right spots. I read mostly MM now ate up every word of their story.

Now, it is a perfectly enjoyable standalone for readers who prefer MF & aren't pulled to AI because of that, but it is just so rich when placed on the end of this series.

Cara McKenna's "Shivaree" series is one of the others in the needs-to-be-read-in-order vein, imo. The MM story is what interests me so I put up with a little bit of MFM :) but that was worth it for the part she plays in the story. A re-read at least one a year for me. (less)

5+ Stars to this story of a love that last a lifetime! So I don't read much of the M/F genre anymore I am a hardcore M/M reader. However, when I saw this sign up and what it was about, I caved. I am SO GLAD I did, this is one book that you don't want to miss!! I got this book on my kindle last night and I stayed up all night reading it, Couldn't put it down - was crying, laughing, and just so enthralled in the story that before I knew it I had read the night away!!

CURTIS (Coyote Ridge #1) #mustclick #5stars

I am going to start my saying I am struggling to find the words to relay my love of this book. Yes, Nicole Edwards is an author whose books I adore, but Curtis takes that to a whole new level. With literary genius Ms Edwards provides the reader with a glimpse inside a love that spans 5 decades.
I loved that CURTIS is not told in flashbacks. You see their love story from the beginning (starting in 1962) as well as the present day.

Wow just wow!!!! Nicole Edwards just continues to amaze me!! Fasten your seatbelt for this story. I laughed, I cried, then I laughed again and in between this is a hot and sexy story. I will NEVER get tired of reading about the Walker family.

Curtis and Lorrie's love story is 50 years in the making and is one of the most beautiful stories ever. I want to say so much more but at the same time don't want to give anything away. So in a nutshell......YOU MUST READ CURTIS!!!!

Tenderly sweet story of innocence and true love. Curtis' character was not what I expected. His sincere gentleness towards Lorrie took me by surprise. A truly perfect hero. Loved seeing their journey from childhood to present day.
4.5 Stars!

This story was just soooooo lovely. Well done and what an insight we got of Curtis and Lorrie.

"I've always believed for every person there was only one love that would last a lifetime I never understood quite what it meant until I met you though. You're it for me, Lorrie. You are my love that lasts a lifetime" Curtis Walker

and this really sums up what this book is about- the trials that come within a relationship, the strength that they give each other - a love that withstood the test of time an

"What?” Curtis asked, looking from one boy to the next. “Y’all think you were the only wild ones in Coyote Ridge?”

I absolutely love the Walker family, and the love story of Curtis and Lorrie was everything I hoped for. Love, laughter, tears, heartbreak, and steam - this book packs it all into the pages as we live 50+ years of history with them.

Normally I would write a long-ish review with all kinds of details on the feels, but that opening paragraph completely sums up this book for me. As we ex

I don't really like books that are mostly set in the past nor do I normally read books about the parent/ grandparents! They're not something I've ever really enjoyed and I wasn't sure about reading this story. Saying that I'm so glad I did.

I have loved every Nicole Edwards book I have read so far and this book was no different. Curtis and Lorrie were the matriarch's of the family and I loved them in every book we have seen them in.

Curtis wasn't anything like I expected him to be, he was amazin

There is nothing better to walk down memory lane with Nicole Edward's Walker Brothers. And when I found out this was Curtis's story-Walker Boys dad...OHHHH MYYY GAWD...I WAS IN HEAVEN!!!

When the story begins...Curtis is almost 17 and Lorrie Jameson is 14. Both came from HUGE families. Her daddy hated the Walkers, and when Curtis's dad passed

I love romance that stands the test of time.
I'm almost embarrassed to say but this is my first Nicole Edwards book. Don't judge. And yes, I wish I had started back in the day but it is what it is.
I love true romance stories, or what I love to call "home grown" romances. Curtis and Lorrie knew each other from young children and formally met when he was 17 and she was 14. Ulterior motives and circumstance brought them together but really passion and true love kept them together.

“Where’re we goin’?” he grumbled. “Across the street to grab a bite to eat. Everyone’s waitin’ on us.” “Everyone?” Curtis frowned. “Yeah, you know, the other six who you donated sperm for.” Curtis shook his head in disbelief. Some of the things that came out of his boys’ mouths.” 1 likes
