Maddy moves to a new town to start teaching. She meets Luke at a bar, and he's pissed that she's there. They finally decide to give it another try, but Luke is only available on some weekends due to his job at an outback station. Maddy decides to try training at an outback station to show Luke that she's not materialistic and can hang with it. Little does she know that the same station she volunteers at ends up being the same station that Luke owns.
Once again the arguing starts, because they kept secrets from one another. Within every argument either Maddy or Luke assumes why the other does what he/she does, and the internal monologues get a bit tiresome.
True love wins at the end.
I am reviewing for Kylie's Fiction Addiction.
Love this dynamic of taking a city girl and putting her in a country setting, all for love. I also loved Maddy's mental conflict in trying to figure out if this designer dress wearing, Jimmy Choo shoe loving city girl could survive and thrive in the country, for her man.
I only have one request from the author, can we find someone for Zane, please (Loved him).
This is about Maddy and Luke, who also was in the first book, Winning the Player. Maddy was Aubree's best friend and Hunter's cousin.
Maddy McIntyre is a city girl but leaves Adelaide to take a new teaching job out in the country. She needs and wants a new start because just 6 months prior she had her heart stomped on by her first and only love of her life, Luke. This job just happens to be located in Broken Hill, where Luke's living. She is secretly wishing that Luke will give her another chance to show him that she knows they belong together. She settles in quickly, makes friends and starts partying and living her life.
Luke White has issues and problems that he keeps to himself. In fact, in the 10 months he was with Maddy, he never told her any of his issues. The reason he breaks up with her was because issues at home had finally come to blows so he has to move back home. He breaks off their relationship with reasons such as Maddy being immature and she is high maintenance. He works hard at his station(US it means Ranch) and focuses on his work and getting things back on track. He keeps his mind off Maddy because he is miserable without her but knows its for the best. So to his surprise, he sees Maddy in town and cant believe she is there. He actually is pissed over it. But he cant avoid her forever.
Can Maddy prove to Luke that she is mature and they deserve one another? Will Luke let go of his past and let Maddy in? Can Maddy leave the city life and settle down to be a county girl while truly being happy?
Overall this was a good read. It is full of angst.
My issue is that its a "romance" but the whole book is them going back and forth and it got tiresome.
***Reviewed for Kylie's Fiction Addiction***
Maddy takes a job at a country school to use the contract for a better job in the future and to see Luke again. She didn't like the way things ended and thinks once he sees her he'll realize what he lost. Adapting to the country quickly, Maddy makes friends with some colleagues and starts hanging out at the local watering holes with them. Being a small town and all, she of course runs into Luke who is none to happy to see her.
In the ten months of dating Luke has kept his problems at home away from Maddy. Once they came to a head, he had to let her go while he went back home to take care of things. Now at home he is focused on working and getting use to station life again. (Station is the Australian word for Ranch. I learned a few new terms this time around) He sees Maddy in town, but knows there's a reason they can't work as a couple, so he tries to stay away.
Luke fails. He keeps seeing Maddy out and about. It doesn't help that she has befriended his childhood friend Kristen at work, so Maddy has a better insight to Luke's past. They talk, fight, talk again and fight some more. The back and forth of this "couple" was maddening. Throw in the always sexy Zane and quite the love triangle blossoms.
Maddy has a plan, Luke has a plan, they collide and all hell breaks loose. At the 85% point I wasn't sure things were going to clear up to my satisfaction, however Leesa Bow gives us a completed ending. The book is well written and I was informed this is the second in the Destiny Romance series. I shall be reading the first one next.
