Carlos drove to Texas in order to tell Nick, his former boss, that his mother has almost destroyed the family ranch.  He’s tired, the GPS isn’t working right and he can’t find the road to Nick’s house. He’s ready to howl in frustration when a cute guy driving past blows him a kiss. It wakes up his libido, making him feel things he’d thought long dead. After all,who would want an unemployed, middle-aged cowboy with nothing to offer?  

Yet he has hope when he walks into The Xxchange looking for directions and gets invited to play with the hunky bartender and the flirty cutie from the car. How can he say no? He can’t. Can being in a threesome with Troy and Will work when they each have wants, needs and desires to be fulfilled? Is being together enough with outside forces working against them? Can they make it work? 

Where There’s a Will is the latest release in Bailey Bradford’s Love in Xxchange series.  With so many returning characters and established relationship, you should read the books in order to avoid confusion. 

Introducing Will first is a good idea. Knowing how he's linked with James immediately pulls the characters from the previous book, In My Arms Tonight, into the storyline.  It also quickly gives us an idea of his fun, quirky personality, and his unfortunate family history without it being overdone. Then we meet cowboy Carlos, who’s frustrated with his GPS—who can’t relate to that?  And there’s Troy, the hunky bartender who’s lonely and envious he doesn’t have a partner of his own. On the surface, these three are a disaster until you get to know their wants and desires—their hearts. That’s when putting them together makes sense. Yes, there’s a lot of sex as they develop their relationship but its part of the process as they challenge each other and learn to trust. 

It’s nice seeing so many of the interesting characters I’ve come to enjoy returning. And Annabelle finally had the babies. We also meet Will’s domineering father and sister. Besides the copious amount of sex, there are a lot of life decisions going on and the author manages to help all of the characters navigate through their problems in a believable and orderly manner. There are several threads left dangling that I hope will be addressed in a future book. I really want to know more about what happens to their relationship.
