The Porter brothers were raised to live and die by Three Rules.
One, a Porter always keeps what’s his.
Two, a Porter leaves no enemy standing.

Greer’s been searching for love in all the wrong places. He wants kids … and lots of them, so it’s time to get busy and find the lucky woman to share his bed and his life. Though there isn’t a lot to choose from in the small town of Treepoint, he has managed to narrow his choices down to three.

The strange thing is, the one he’s falling in love with remains a mystery, hiding her face and name in the messages she sends from behind her computer. The mysterious woman may dodge his questions about her identity, but it’s only a matter of time before she finds out that this Porter brother won’t back away from something he wants, and he wants her.

Come hell or high water, he will find the one who goes by KentuckyGirl and make her his, despite what anyone says, even her. And KentuckyGirl is going to find out the last Porter rule the hard way: A Porter always stands his ground and leads his prey into his waiting arms…

I might not always be in huge L O V E with every Jamie Begley book that has graced my hands, but it can’t be denied that she is one of my all-time favorite storytellers and realistic romance writers. I’ve been both dreading and anticipating Standing His Ground, which turns out to be Greer and Holly’s story, and I can wholeheartedly say that the rollercoaster of emotions was not in vain.

For the simple fact that Standing His Ground marks the umpteenth book I’ve read by Begley and have not once been able to guess the direction she would’ve taken the story leaves me both elated and frustrated, lol.

The romance between Greer and Holly went in what I feel was the only direction that would’ve made them possible as a couple. Greer was always a butthead and Holly was almost like a Willa without having the same hangups so they had a lot to navigate through. Begley stayed true to their characters but also allowed them to evolve and become better versions of themselves which I am grateful for because these two had some serious growing to do.

Standing His Ground also tied up a few loose ends, mostly pertaining to a few unsavory characters that irked my nerves, but it also gave a somewhat better glimpse into the unconventional connection The Porter Brothers have with The Last Riders.

Standing His Ground was, again, another awesome story by Begley. I wouldn’t change a thing about it regardless of the past of these characters have come from, nor the situations that encompassed their present circumstances.

About Jamie Begley

“I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.

Taking after my mother, I’ve always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduated this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently I am writing five series of books- The Last Riders, The VIP Room, Predators MC, Biker Bitches, and The Dark Souls.

All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best.”
