The Porter Brother's were raised to live and die by Three Rules

One, a Porter stands his ground

Two, a Porter leaves no enemy standing


Sutton Creech was a cheat and a liar. Tate Porter had found that out when he was eighteen, and he had no intention of letting her make a fool out of him again. He didn’t care how much pain he saw in her eyes or how old memories tugged

Good. Lord. I regret this purchase.

I love assholes.

No, not actual physical assholes, you gutter rats.


I like it when my Heroes are strong alpha, badass assholes.


But there is a difference between a strong alpha, badass asshole...

...and a man who puts actual (as in literal) NOTCHES on his shot gun barrel for every woman he's fucked.

I almost bought Keeping What's His, but after reading the reviews, I realized: I’m not “THAT GIRL” anymore.

“THAT GIRL” who thinks:

Your hero won’t be an immature, egotistical, douchebag who nails every vagina in the county (including the heroine’s BFF) & unapologetically rubs the heroine’s nose in it. But it’s okay. Because the second he decides he
Another disappointment for me, although it wasn't as insufferable as Lucky's Choice. In Keeping what's his, Jamie Begley focuses on a character from her Last Riders biker series who has until now mostly remained on the sidelines: Tate Porter, self-proclaimed hillbilly and proud of it, and supplier of Treepoint's best holistic medicine aka Kentucky's Gold aka primo weed.

I liked the Porter brothers and was interested in reading a series centered around their antics. There are definitely some crazy

Wow he slept with another woman the day after they split up and he slept with her best friend showing no remorse. Is Cheryl going to the new Bliss?? This guy was no hero and the heroine was pathetic to take him back!

When I found out that the Porter's where getting their own series I was all like...


If you've read The Last Riders series then you already know who they are. If you haven't then what you need to know is that they are 3 redhead, weed growing, pot selling, hillbillies and this is the older brother's story, Tate.


He and Sutton where high school sweethearts but a lot of misunderstandings, some blackmailing and one hot headed guy (HIM) brought their relationship to an end and forced Sutton to leave and

"If we fall, we'll do it together."

In High School, Tate Porter and Sutton Creech were the couple that never should have been together. He was the hillbilly, weed grower and she was the daughter of a judge, good girl. But when Sutton spends a summer with her Pap and it puts her in close proximity of Tate the two can't stay away from each other. Together through both easy and hard times they promise each other a lifetime of happiness. Until Sutton betrays Tate the night of Prom and the

Formulaic story except with drug dealers, bikers and the F word.

This is a pretty standard formulaic, "you broke my heart when I was young" romance, except the hero and his family are drug dealers. It's hard to relate to people whose main concerns are patrolling their fields and having their business undercut by other dealers.

I couldn't really connect to any of the characters, and the story line kept being oddly interrupted by references to supernatural abilities not previously mentioned. I wonde

Great book!

Didn't have a whole lot of expectations for the Porter Brothers, since they're a crazy lot and I'm not familiar with predicting crazy antics, but I was pleasantly surprised with how Tate's story was done. Throughout the Last Riders' series Tate's background wasn't really mention like Greer's and Dustin's, so I was curious about what conflict he was going to have to overcome when I found out that his book was next up.

Bottom line, I absolutely loved this story. It wasn't as steamy as

I admit, due to the shenangins of the Porter Bros., whom readers met in The Last Riders series, and due to the "hillbilly-cute" couple of this piece, Sutton and Tate, I feel relieved that I was able to go back to the world of Treepoint again and enjoy it after the epic fail of my once-favorite biker, Shade, and the staleness that was becoming one of my favorite mediocre/"pass-the-time" biker romance worlds.

Well… it was supposed to be great… until you added those bikers.

I don’t hate bikers or something like that. It just that… I felt like adding those fucked up the story a bit, in some ways.

I think I’m going to read the next one.

perfect storm
Could take it or leave it

I love Jamie Begley' s writing as is captures the roughness in us all and the fiction we wish for. This story line was kinda been there done that for me and the editing needed some definite attention. Ok read, but eh...I'd pass.

What a great start to a new series! I really enjoyed Tate & Sutton's second chance romance story!! It was emotional, it was funny, it made my heart smile & it made my heart break. It just felt so real & so right for them to reconnect & get that second chance at first love.

I LOVED the fact that Tate & Sutton were such an evenly matched couple. Usually in this genre, one of the main characters (generally, the guy) pulls more than their fair share of jerkface moves, making it easy to blame them fo

If I had known that this was an 18 year separation where the Zero did not fight for the heroine, I would not have read this book at all. The heroine had an ott tragic story after their break up in high school. She was also TSTL who let pride get in the way of her and her daughter’s safety. She was too proud to go back to her parents after suffering years of abuse from her hubby and even if she was scared for the safety of her daughter, she still did not ask for help from her judge father...

I have such a book hangover after reading this one. I've loved the craziness of the Porters in The Last Riders Series, so I was definitely excited about seeing them with their own series. And it didn't disappoint. Laughter, tears, and steaminess abound in Tate's story. ...more

This is a pretty average book. I was very tempted to rate it 2 stars, since so much of the storyline was ridiculous, but the actual writing moved along well enough.

New Jamie favorite! The tears, the laughter...It's going to take a while to get over this book. :(

Tate, Tate, Tate, you complex, arrogant, stubborn ass man you!

I have to say that Jamie really raised the bar for herself when she wrote this story. I thought Lily's past was bad--Oh, and it was horrible, terrible, tragic!--but Sutton was a different type of horrendous. The anguish that woman went through is going to stick with me for a long time to come. I couldn't even comprehend reading for a few
