Very very clean Western Romance!
on August 17, 2011
Ryder Maddox was a farm hand at "Dusty" Angelina's father's ranch. At that time the two young children could play innocently together. However, when Dusty was around fourteen years old, Ryder, meanwhile around twenty, decided that he had to move on because he was sure he wouldn't be able to play only innocently with Dusty. In any case, he broke Dusty's heart and the playful, resourceful and vivid child turns into a hard woman without any self-confidence. After five long years Ryder meets Dusty's father accidentally and accompanies him home only to find out that Dusty has changed. Can he help her to re-discover her true self?
The main characters were well enough developed. Ryder was the perfect hero. His patience and the way he tried to "resurrect" the "old" Dusty was just great. However, Dusty's back and forths were rather tieredsome, especially because her dilemma lasted nearly throughout the whole book! A twist towards the end of the book saved the heroine from being completely unworthy of a man like Ryder.
The plot of this Western Romance was very simplistic and straight forward. There were two further sub-plots involved, which were equally simple. In any case, the whole mix was pleasurable and entertaining - but nothing else.
If you like very romantic Western Romances, were only kisses (and nothing else) are exchanged, you might want to read this one.
