Miranda is the only reporter/photographer for their small town newspaper. Growing up she was a party girl with loose morals. She was looking for attention in all the wrong places. She grew up and changed her ways but the townspeople won’t look beyond her past to see her now.
Ryan is guardian to his 13 year old siblings. He runs the family farm and is on the city council. He’s been interested in Miranda for a long time, but due to her reputation and the town’s opinion of her, has never acted on it. Until he needs her help.
I didn’t like either character. Miranda seemed only interested in jumping Ryan’s bones without wanting anything else. Ryan supposedly didn’t like how the townspeople treated her but he didn’t treat her any better. It takes Ryan more than 70% of the book to decide to treat her right and bring their relationship out in the open. And who puts 13 year old twins in a cabin by themselves two cabins from yours so you don’t have to be quiet while you have sex with your girlfriend?! And if I had to hear one more time how wet Miranda was or him asking her how wet she was or guessing how wet she was! Eye roll
I found myself skimming pages. At 25% I skipped to the last chapter to see if I even wanted to finish the book. I still wasn’t convinced. I went to the reviews on Goodreads and saw where several people said the second half of the book was better, so I trudged on. It did not get better in my opinion.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC provided by Netgalley.
I really liked Miranda. Usually the male character tends to be my favorite, but for once, the female snags that title. She had such a rough life yet she still held her head up high. I was cheering her on the whole time and so proud of what all she does throughout the book. She has come such a long way from when she was younger yet she is still judged by it each and every day. I guess that is how it goes in small towns, but she is so much more than what they think!
Ryan was also a sweet character though he definitely had some stuff he needed to work out. I still loved him character and all he represented. Having to raise your two younger siblings while you are still young yourself isn't easy and I understand his decisions, though they aren't always the right ones.
The romance in this one was so sweet but intense. I liked being able to watch it unfold and I found myself smiling as I was reading on more than one occasion. There is quite a bit of sexual scenes in this book, but they get more and more bearable as you go on. I found at first it was a bit much but I think it does make sense as the story goes on and why it was done that way in the beginning.
I felt there was several hidden messages as you go through and when you close this book, you will sit there thinking about your own life and where it needs to be headed. I like books that are like that. You get a nice romance on top of so wisdom to take with you when it's over.
This was a book I ended up enjoying and am glad that I pushed through the beginning. I think if I were to re-read it the beginning would make a lot more sense and I would enjoy it alot more. I plan to do this soon so I can get the most out of the story. I hope all of you give this one a chance, you won't be sorry if you do!
Not the case, as much as I loved the blurb I was sure I was going to fall in love and fly right through this book, sadly the blurb was the best part for me.
I've put off actually writing this review, giving myself a chance to digest what I read and even going back to pick at a few areas thinking I missed something that made this better than I rated it.
First of all is Ryan, while he appears the all mighty Alpha ladies all over town adore, doing the right thing raising his siblings but in truth he's anything but. Big, sexy and bossy he may be but he's more sissy than alpha. I was disappointed in him so many times. His seemingly noble priorities weren't all it was cracked up to be either.
Miranda. I get the whole nobody believes in me, nobody wants me I'll just sleep with him an cross my fingers that he can still stand to look me in the eye the next time we cross paths, but for a woman who was at a glance strong due to the adversity she faced in that town but still stayed and forged on, she was anything but when it came to Ryan.
She's willing to basically pry one night of sex out of this man in exchange for something he wants. It's more modern day prostitution than sexy.
An the fact that he couldn't be seen with her, couldn't let anyone know they had spent a night together and would hide and basically ignore her in front of any and everyone, just no. I wanted to pull my hair out, I'm not sure if I wanted to slap Miranda or punch Ryan more. Maybe if I just smacked their skulls together a few times I would have felt better.
I'm not usually so critical and I feel horrible writing this but this book just didn't do it on any level for me.
A woman who's past won't leave her alone in a tiny town full of stuck on themselves jackasses, who doesn't believe in herself enough to be with a man who respects her, I just could not stand it.
I finished the book though I truly didn't think I could and I debated what rating to give it, I'm still not sure I should give it three but it is what it is, this is where I'll leave it.
