Review: Unwanted Proposal – J. N. Johnson
Caleb Myers is looking forward to the weekend. His sister and his brother-in-law are taking a little vacation, and he is left behind to take care of the family business. In his mind, it’s the perfect moment to garner some much needed time for himself. Lord knows, he needs it.
When Riley Campbell sets foot in Clearwater with the intention of buying out Winter Lilly’s Outfitters, Caleb refuses to bend to her will. There’s no way he’s going to give up the one thing he loves the most. He’s come too far to allow a city girl like her take everything away from him. Although he can sort of understand where she’s coming from, he knows he can’t let her get her way. The family business and those around him are too close-knit to allow an outsider to change the way things really are in town.
Unable to deny the fact that the mere sight of Riley calls out to him, Caleb vows to stand firm in his decision to not sell his business. Clearwater and Winter Lilly’s Outfitters mean everything to him. Determined to change her mind, he sets off to show her what living a simple country life is all about. It’s his only chance to open her to eyes to what she’s missing in life. Yet there’s one thing he never counted upon – the attraction roiling beneath the surface every time Riley looks his way.
A truly titillating story, we dive right in to the life and times of Caleb Myers. He’s a man with his own demons who is determined to live his life just the way he wants to. Granted, things haven’t been so easy for him, but life is never the way we want it to be.
J. N. has done a wonderful job in drawing forth the emotions between Caleb and Riley to the point that the reader wants to know more. The fire boiling between them in palpable. So much so, that by the time you get to the end of the story, you honestly want to keep on reading to know more about the character’s themselves. This is a great addition to the Clearwater series, and I look forward to seeing what comes next.

Caleb Myers watched as his sister and brother-in-law, Joshua, drove away from Clearwater for a much needed vacation, leaving him to housesit, and take care of the family business. The idea of a long weekend of peace and quiet at their country cabin turned out to be a short-lived dream when a phone call from his employee at Winter Lilly’s Outfitters brings news of an unwanted visitor.
Riley Campbell wants nothing more out of life than to impress the pig-headed bosses who like to use her as client eye candy at her Houston law firm, and put her career on the fast track for partner. Nothing made her happier than legal battles and paper pushing, but when she is sent miles from her normal city life, and thrown into the country setting of Clearwater, Wyoming, she fears she may have met her match.
With an offer in hand to buy Winter Lilly’s Outfitters, Riley tries to convince Caleb to take the deal, but his good ole boy ways, country charms, and fierce loyalty leaves her wanting more than just his name on the dotted line.
Can two people from opposite worlds come together under such an Unwanted Proposal?
