This is how she met Alex McGregor, the very rich owner of a large station. After her father died Alex began to take charge of Jodie's life and so began a dependence on him. ...... Jodie had me silently saying NOoo.... don't go there .....don't commit to this relationship with Alex McGregor.......he's NOT right for you! Tooo controlling and possessive.
The week-end in Riverton at the Rodeo proved to be very eventful with the colliding of Nate and Jodie, and sparks flew.....Wow and left me thinking, here we go! Happy Family's Not! Here we go, this guy is some-how related to Alex!, only a better version and his travelling Mate Wally is as dry as the Desert Dust,.....a real old crusty stockman!
Who said fate dos'nt happen, and so the story unfolds with highs and lows , drama and sadness.
Margareta is a very talented writer and this book is no exception!!
Jodie Ashton is our leading lady and I can state without any hesitation that she weathered the novel with my respect. She’s a character who is genuinely likable, a hard working country girl who is trying to raise her seven year old daughter on her own. She’s just lost her father and it’s his good friend, Alex, who is keen to help Jodie–never mind he’s fifty-eight (to Jodie’s early thirties).
It’s Alex pursuing Jodie at first, while Jodie debates internally whether she can love Alex or not. For a woman who fell in love with a cowboy at a young age and has paid the price, Alex’s stability and financial support represents a strong argument in favour of the relationship in Jodie’s mind. Unfortunately Alex is also old-fashioned and Jodie worries his outdated expectations of women will prove restrictive. He’s also strict with her daughter and the two don’t seem to warm to one another.
Needing some time to truly work out how she feels about her relationship with Alex, Jodie escapes on a girl’s weekend to a rodeo. It’s there she meets cowboy Nate. Hang on, you’ll just have to give me a moment (fans myself with my hand). Ahem. I never thought of myself as a cowboy sort of girl, but Osborn has converted me. While the reader is hard-pressed to resist Nate’s charm, nor does Jodie stand the chance.
Early in the book I felt myself becoming impatient because a lot of time was spent setting up Jodie’s relationship with Alex. It was important to the story, but because we already knew about the conflict to come, I found myself eagerly awaiting that point in time where Jodie and Nate would meet. There was also a degree of inevitability later in the book when things came to a head between Alex and Nate, and when Jodie is torn between stability and trusting a cowboy again. Despite this, I found myself eager to turn the pages on the sheer power of Nate and Jodie’s magnetic relationship.
The latter part of the book packed a punch. It was laced with family drama, a heady dose of unsuspecting plot twists and a dramatic conclusion to keep your heart pounding. Osborn has a gift for creating authentic characters and even the supporting characters have a depth that succeeds in bringing Jodie’s community alive to us.
By the time I came up for air, I was convinced of several things. Osborn is an author of prowess, pulling the father v son conflict off with ease and in a way that didn’t damage our respect for Jodie. And the other thing? I think I may have fallen in love with a cowboy for the first time in my life. Not sure how my husband will take that one…
