With a train ticket, a bad attitude, and an unfortunate scribbling of obscenities across her forehead, seventeen-year-old Avery Ross is tossed out of the frying pan and into the fire when she’s sent from New York to the vast oil field region of North Dakota. When a green-eyed boy with a sultry Texan accent comes to her defense, Avery has no clue that his actions will lead her into a passion-charged summer, full of temptation and loss.



Defiant and relegated to work at her aunt’s boarding house, Avery discovers a connection between her aunt and the striking boy. He and his brothers are seeking revenge for the wrongful death of their sibling, and Avery becomes entangled in their battle over oil rights, loyalty, and love. Avery falls for the brooding, younger brother, Gabriel Halden, against her aunt’s forewarnings and creates more tribulations than any of them could anticipate.

Jeanne Arnold is the author of STUBBORN and other young adult romances. At a young age she found her creative outlet in art, and for years her fictional characters came to life in drawings and paintings, until they demanded a voice. Now they grace the pages of her stories. Jeanne shares her time with her fictional teenage counterparts and her human family in Central New York.











The title of this one really says it all...Stubborn. Many times people can be so stubborn that they do not realize how much it can make them miss in life. Avery was so mad at her parents for sending her off to the middle of nowhere North Dakota for the summer that she was not open to having a good time. That quickly changed when she started running into these 3 brothers that all had amazing good looks and killer hazel eyes!!!!

 Avery has trouble telling them apart and it takes her a while to figure them out. Gabe is the one she WANTS but will he let her into his life?! His brother Caleb is definitely willing....he freaked me out a little with his willingness! This story really goes deep and I loved the way the author gave little hints along the way. I would recommend this book if you like young love mixed with lots of family DRAMA!

 I give it 4 stars!
