I wanted to love this one, but it didn't engage me as much as I'd hoped. I liked the basic premise--strong, independent socialite surprises everyone when she buys a ranch and actually does the work to fix it up...Rugged, handsome, down on his luck cowboy with a chip on his shoulder assumes there's no way she'll stick it out, but he'll watch her fail...but while there were some really nice moments, I spent too much time annoyed with both of these characters to really enjoy this story.
Both characters spent a lot of time in their own heads--frequently thinking about having sex with the other person. Victoria was quite embarrassingly silly about it, especially in the beginning. She came across as immature and difficult, which didn't really go with all the strength she was showing with following her dream and building her business...it was contradictory and pulled me out of the story too often. Lang ended up acting like a 12 year old boy pulling pranks on his sister, and those actions seemed way out of character...but his character was already a bit uneven for me.
This is a standalone story with a HEA, and there are some really strong moments in the story that make it worth reading--I just feel like it had a lot of potential and it didn't quite get there for me personally.
I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
This was a quick fun read but I was a bit confused after reading the blurb about the book being a clean read then finding it was not the clean type after all. While it was not explicit as some, it is not a book that I would recommend to my mother!
I loved, Victoria because she did not come off as a spoiled rich girl, and was a hardworking "regular" woman that had a dream she wanted to make a reality.
On the other hand, Lang annoyed me as he thought that he was "helping" Victoria by trying to sabotage things on the ranch. It was great that even though he tried to cause her to fail, she kept going and his plan failed.
There was a HEA but it was kind of quick and not drawn out.
I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly
