cw: death of a parent.

Well, this was an enjoyable messy read and I was here for it lols. The second book in The Outlaws is Cashen's story. Cash has found out that his mother has died and in her will, she has left him her land in Wyoming. Thing is Cash has never had a relationship with his mother. Honestly, neither has any of his brothers. Their father Bart is a mean son of a gun and whether the women he had children with decided to be in their children's lives or not, Bart was not having it. Cashen's mother was in the first bracket. She wanted a relationship with her son but Bart being Bart....

Anyolway's, planning not to deal much with his mother's estate. Cash was just going to go out there, look around and sell the property. But then he sees Briana Banks and well, maybe staying a bit longer in Wyoming isn't such a bad idea. 

Briana has a plan though. Cash's mother was very generous in her will towards her as well. She is upset at Cash's plan to initially sell the property but after she finds out that he does indeed to keep it and he needs access to a piece of  land she now owns, she wants something from him too and that's a baby. 

Listen, when Briana asked Cash to father her child. Cashen was first like I don't roll like that but then when he saw an opportunity present itself, he was like I'll one up you....marry me. Briana didn't know what to do, she was flustered af lols. But Cash was not going to be denied. He wanted Briana and would do just about anything to get in her panties so when the offer comes up, he takes full advantage of it. Smart man lols. 

This was a easy read, not a whole lot of drama between Cash and Briana even though Ms. Jackson tried to slip us up towards the end but thank goodness, she didn't draw it out. I'm a bit upset that we didn't get more on the way Cash dealt with his mother's death. Like I know, he didn't have a relationship with her but still, that felt just a tad strange. I also felt like Bart interfering was too quickly glossed over and why didn't Cash get in his ass about keeping his mother away from him? 

All and all, this is a good read and I'm not mad at it.
