...... an enthralling contemporary romance story with a captivating plot and fresh characters, set against the serene and enchanting background of a beautiful ranch... incredible writing brought out the characters and their inner wars and wounds perfectly. Frank and Colt brought out a whole mixture of feelings in me; Their story is a perfectly portrayed example of how fear of being hurt again can get in the way of true love. ..
Review Rating: 5 stars!

.... an intense, realistic love story that is not the usual boy-meet-girl type. I loved reading about life on the ranch and the outdoors lifestyle that goes with it. ...found Frank's character to be superbly portrayed, and hopefully a book like this will open up the discussion about mental health and mental illnesses and how devastating they can be. I actually liked both of the central protagonists and found myself rooting for them. A great new novel in the romance genre and a fun read!
Review Rating: 4 stars.

....a world with vibrant characters...Frank - a very interesting name for a lead female character - can do anything a male ranch hand can do and better. She's been hurt and she's vulnerable, but she's strong and independent at the same time. Her attraction to Colt sizzles and their chemistry is undeniable. They both make their share of bad decisions trying to find the right path. Painful moments brought tears to my eyes, and the stubborn streak in that cowboy, well, it's what kept me reading...

...Antypowich...demonstrates a good knowledge of human nature in this take of a woman who has suffered three devastating losses in a short period... Her central character is a feisty, ex-tom-boy named Frank, who is a vet...She meets a guy whose opinion of woman is pretty low...My main interest was in how she handled Frank's depression and although, she does not belabor the issue, Frank's attitudes and behaviors reflect the condition well. Ms Antypowich also writes cleanly and clearly and the story develops smoothly.
