I loved this story. She was a high school graduate he two years older. They knew they were in love even at that early age. However, they lived in a small town, both lived on ranches and had that lifestyle. She had gone to live with her grandmother when her parents were killed. She was in love with the boy/man next door. However, her grandmother had other plans for her. She wanted to give her the opportunity to live out her dream of making it big on Broadway. There was one problem. The grandmother never asked her what her dream was she just assumed she knew what was best. She arranged for her granddaughter to go to New York and never see the cowboy again. It broke her heart as well as his but he thought he did the right thing.
Twelve years later they meet again. Nothing has changed with what the heart wants but too much has happened to be able to forgive and start over. This is a great story. I loved these characters and want their HEA for them. You feel good when you finish the book. I especially do because I have already read Book 2, The Lawman's Apache Moon. These heroes just get better and better. The female leads are all strong, independent, free thinking women. They have a brain and a spine!! I loved the story and I highly recommend it. Thinking back on it, there is no sex involved. I don't see how anyone could be offended with too much sex. I know some reaers will be happy to hear that! A great read, don't miss it.
I was not paid for this review. I am not a writer nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 4-1-18
Kaitlyn returns home after a 12 year absence. We learn that she’s avoided home because this guy she loved to pieces, Clay, dumped her. Apparently, he dumped her because Kaitlyn’s grandmother convinced him that it would be better for her to move to NYC to become a broadway star rather than become a wife and mother. Twelve years later, grandma has a sudden change of heart and finagles Clay and Kaitlyn under the same roof for a few days.
Sparks do not fly. They try to ignite but fail miserably, either by nothing happening or a disruption when things look like they’re finally picking up (like an owl flying by, a leaf blowing in the wind, and god forbid, a cell phone ringing!). For me, the plot never took off and was mired in a pit of mundanity (circular internal dialogue that goes on and on and on, hospital scenes where nothing happens, non starter issues each character is stuck in). Basically, the whole book is him saying, “I have to let her go so she can chase her Broadway dream” and her saying, “ I have to leave because he doesn’t want me but sends me mixed messages that make me want to have his babies but I’m confused so I’m just gonna go back to Broadway.” I mean, it’s totes ok for a girl to pursue her dream, but if you really love each other, you can still try to make it work! It’s not like he was gonna propose the next day. How about if he relocates? There are viable options, people! Instead, these characters just accept their nonstarter fate, and that’s just frankly...unacceptable! To quote a successful entrepreneur, “stupid is as stupid does”. Can’t help you if you won’t help yourselves.
They don’t get together until the very end, at which point I really can’t give a damn anymore. As a matter of fact, I “fast forwarded” and skipped ahead by many, many pages, but I didn’t miss any important developments!
I’m giving this 2 stars because although boring, at least the grammar and editing wasn’t horrible. Zzzz.
