I received this from the publishers in return for an honest review. I don't gush and give false praise - I don't believe that helps readers or authors so what you read is what I truly feel about a book.
Well, this book looks a kind of sweet cowboy romance I thought, and sometimes thats what we need, something gentle and non taxing to read. They're not usually my keepers but fun for a one off read so I asked to review this book. Was I in for a shock, started as a conventional lost love type romance, but quickly diverged into the unusual with twists and turns, and I soon realised that this book is so much more! Just when I thought I'd worked out what the secret was Sara threw in another curve - and then another til by the end the whole plot had taken directions I really didn't envisage from the beginning and was just so much more that a gentle HEA romance I was expecting. There is the happy ever after - but it comes at a price for many of those involved and includes a journey of so many secrets and deception spanning many many years. The characters learn things about themselves and each other that were sometimes unthinkable.
It was a great read, kept me engrossed all the way through and I just loved Seth - yes he made a mistake as did Abby but at 17 and 18 who hasn't. Its that time when you're teetering on the brink of adulthood and yet the repercussions of a simple things can reverberate through the following years with unintended consequences. The betrayals were shocking and very unforeseen by me anyway - and as for the ending, that came up very unexpectedly, never saw it like that!
There's some hot sex scenes, lots of love and humour, and I enjoyed the mix of people involved. Its (I guess) a typical small town where everyone knows everyone else from long long ago and histories are never forgotten and poor Abby still carries discrimination form some of the older families because of her parentage. We see how that shapes some of her decision - the same with Seth, and to compound it their fears are played on by people they trusted. I really felt for the children they were and was so happy that things finally worked out for them though the others innocently involved must have been heartbroken. Still, thats fiction - if its all happy ever after and no-one gets hurt it'd make for a dull tale wouldn't it so as long as my heroes can be happy I can deal with the rest :)
Its well written and edited as usual from Lyrical, a great story that's more than just a gentle romance but has angst and emotions in and lots of twists to keep reader wondering what's going to come out next. All the endings tie in neatly - I hate books where I'm left wondering "yes, but what happened about ...." Sara doesn't do that - she lets all the plots merge and become part of the whole with us learning what was behind the deceptions and motives of the major players. Priced at £3.71 on kindle for 391kb (I don't have page numbers but it was quite a quick read so I'd guess around 175 pages perhaps?).
Stars: well this book really surprised me, I was expecting a 3 star ok read but I'm going for a well reversed four stars - a great read.
Abby has always felt the pain of not fitting in and she made some touch choices at a young age. You can't fault her for following her heart and doing what she thought was right. I have to say that I had no idea the twists and turns this story was going to take! Mike was not the man that we all thought he was going to be.
Love a good rockstar story and this one is a keeper!
