Tyler made himself a billionaire in the 15 years he had been away, but when his father is on his last days in a hospice in twon, he had to go back to Rainbow Texas, his little hometown, and face his high school sweetheart, Kelsi. He left Kelsi behind after she broke his heart, but he's not over her even 15 years later. Kelsi is working hard on her family ranch, hoping to inherit it one day and open up a children's camp. She doesn't want to see Tyler, because Tyler broke her heart by not standing up for her back in high school. Tyler made a bet with his friends that he can get Kelsi to bed, counting on old chemistry. But the more he found out about her circumstances (she's now a single mother, and the ranch is not on solid financial footing) he wanted to forget the bet, as he's genuinely back in love with Kelsi... but will Kelsi forgive him when she found out?
What kind of mature guy bets he can get an old flame back in bed? This guy had't grown up yet. Sheesh. And the grand gesture's so obvious, I saw it coming from half-way in the book. As I said, not one of the author's finest.
The characters are easy to like and kept my interest from the first chapter. There is a romance element to this story, but it's sort-of old fashioned courting mixed with a sexy component. It's not written as blatantly in your face as so many stories are in the romance genre. All-in-all, I liked the story, find the title fitting and would recommend to readers looking for a sweet romantic story. Yes, it does have a happy ending.
Kelsi ended things with Tyler when he failed to defend her to his buddies. It would be 15 years before they see each other again. The feelings are obviously there, but a major obstacle in the form of a stupid bet might get in the way of them finding their hea.
I was very frustrated with the insensitive friend who was never really told off, but enjoyed reading how Tyler and Kelsi navigate the rest.
