She flees her home in Charlotte, North Carolina to take a new job in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and make a new start where her ex-fiancé can’t find her. Jordan is just beginning to adjust to her new life in the middle of nowhere when a small town cowboy walks in and disrupts it all.
Tom McCloud never had time for a serious commitment, always too busy with running his grandparents’ farm. Everything changes when he stumbles upon a broken-hearted city girl and a steamy buzz ignites between them. But what happens when the city girl can’t stay hidden in the country for long?
“You’re making my heart do things it’s never done before.”
“He gave me a mix of nervous excitement and calm. I didn’t know how it was possible, but it was.”
Sweet! I enjoyed this book beginning to end. It was truly refreshing to read a contemporary romance where the two main characters are not in constant conflict with each other, nor do they fight their attraction, deny their feelings, or feel they have to “let them go” for their own good. They adored and loved each other, enjoyed and explored a new love, and reveled in each other. Why is that so rare? The conflict, as there always has to be some… came from an external source and proved to be the vortex of the suspense elements in the book. I had not read Jaycee Ford before and had no expectations. I am now a new fan. I enjoyed her easy narrative, humor, and observations. Her characters were interesting and comfortable. The book was an easy and fast read, a providing me with a pleasant and entertaining afternoon. One I would like to repeat with more of her work.
