4 Stars. " Mending Fences is a wonderful heartwarming book you curl up with when you want to escape into another world. Lucy was successful in making these characters believable, and getting you to care about not only the main couple but the secondary couple as well." --Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Curran Shaw is a CEO who made a spectacle of himself, dating starlets and being featured in tabloids, then he drops out of the public eye and moves to the mountains of Utah.
He encounters a mystery woman at a bar on Halloween. Both of them are masked, but she recognizes him. See, once upon a time she did a story on him. She doesn't let on, and leaves him with a kiss he can't get out of his head.
Months Victoria Linden is out riding when she encounters a bison tangled in a broken fence. She realizes the animal is tame and tries to help when Curran rides up. It's his bison, his land, and when the bison, called Peg Leg, is freed, Curran realizes she's the woman from the bar, the woman who kissed him.
She enters a cautious relationship with him but holds herself back. Not only is she hiding the fact that she was a reporter, knowing his reaction wouldn't be good, she's hiding some even more dangerous secrets.
I love the layers of this story--the way the secrets were revealed to the reader and the hero, and the way the secondary love story mirrors the main one. And I loved the gentle build of the romance. The characters grew together in a realistic yet romantic way.
All in all, a terrific debut!
Looking for a nice sensual read, where love builds and trust is earned, check out this book.
He later meets her again at the edge of his property when he goes out looking for his runaway bison who got tangled up in a barbed wire fence.
He persuades Victoria to date him - not knowing that she's a journalist. (He's gone off the grid & tries to stay away from the press.)
Victoria has some pretty ironclad ground rules about dating that she won't allow herself to break. Mostly due to her traumatic past. But Curran agrees to her rules, as much as he wants her sexually, he enjoys the time the pair spend together.
Not a lot of sex, but lots of build-up & sexual tension until Victoria has another life changing event & she realizes that Curran is with her for the long-term.
