Dallas and Ellie - A second chance at love. Childhood sweethearts and a big mistake made on Ellie's part. Dallas had his heart broken 6 years ago and still cannot forget Ellie. You really feel the hurt that Dallas has. When she returns to try to make amends with Dallas you wonder if she can. Hot and steamy sex scenes so be prepared to use your bookmark for them. The scene with the necklace is a surprise. It sets the stage. Really erotic when Dallas finally claims Ellie as his own. Sizzling sex! The pond scene is surprising and when he puts it on her finger you cheer. Really enjoyable read and really wished it was longer. Great HEA.
Ellie is returning to Texas to make amends with Dallas, one sexy cowboy, after cheating on him 6 years earlier--something he discovered when he walked in on her and another guy having sex in her dorm room. He turned around, headed for home and didn't look back. If this had been a true novella, and it easily could have been, we'd have at least discovered whether or not Ellie and Dallas had made promises to one another before she went off to college--Dallas certainly seemed to think that was the case. I'd have loved to read about the beginning of their relationship.
Ellie, now back in Texas, goes to Hart's Pond, the place she and Dallas first made love, arriving late and daydreaming until dark. When she tries to leave, her truck gets stuck in the mud, and guess who thinks there's someone trespassing on his property?
No spoilers from me, but it's easy to see where this story is going, and my problem with it is that it just gets there way too fast. If someone cheated on me and never even tried to contact me for 6 years, it would take a whole lot longer for them to get back in my good graces again. I'm aware that this is only the first installment in a series, but if each installment is going to be this short, I think many reader's will wait for you to finish the series and buy it all at once.
As I've said before when reviewing Ms. Petrova's work, "Em, you're talented and you're more than capable of writing a longer, more compelling piece of romantic fiction, and I keep hoping that you will."
Dallas finds his "Ellie" girl having sex with a college boy, so he gives up women for good! He concentrates on his ranch and home renovations, not leaving any room in his life for women.
Fast forward five years.....While out checking his land, Dallas discovers a truck bogged down in the mud. Upon further inspection, he discovers his "Ellie" girl walking toward the road. He picks her up and offers to let her use the phone to call for help. When nobody's available, he drives her home himself.
He finds that even though she destroyed him five years ago, he still loves her and wants her. Ellie came home to right past wrongs and apologize to Dallas for hurting him...
This novel is actually a novella. It is a quick, easy read with a HEA. I've read several other Em Petrova novels and it's not that I didn't like it, but I was actually disappointed Dallas was so forgiving. I've been in a marriage where my husband cheated on me and it completely destroyed my trust and me. Lots of self-doubt. I know it's fiction, but I wanted Ellie to have to work harder for Dallas' love and trust. Otherwise, a good novella.
