Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.
Oh, Ronan, Ronan, Ronan... Dare I call him my favorite male main character among all of Willa Nash's books? Yes, yes, I do dare because Ronan Thatcher was so much more than I was expecting and hoping for. The thirty-five-year-old is the newest resident of Calamity, and his story plays out in The Brawl, the fifth full-length novel--and sixth book overall--in the Calamity, Montana series. He's a highly successful attorney who's decided to move from everything he's known in California to open a law practice in Calamity, hoping to plant roots and get the re-start he needs. When he meets Larke Hale, he thinks his charm will win her over, but he quickly realizes that the thirty-five-year-old teacher and single mom is unlike any other woman he's met before. Ronan doubts, however, that he'll win any points when one of her students decides to hire him and sue Larke for an unacceptable grade. This may be one calamitous brawl where everybody wins or doesn't.
Every visit to Willa Nash's stroke of genius that is her fictional town of Calamity, Montana never fails to bring a smile to my pouty face and warmth to my cold heart. The place definitely has its quirks, making it an even more endearing location, what more its residents. I liked the idea of Ronan being a new transplant and Larke being someone who was born and bred in Calamity. Add to that the unforgettable meet-cute these two shared, and I was more than curious to see how things would play out between, especially when Ember approached Ronan for help. There are a couple of other interesting twists in the story, but I'm not going to spoil it for any and all readers who have yet to read this book. So, do yourselves a favor and go read The Brawl as soon as humanly possible! Five stars!
