A cowboy who can’t get off the ranch to meet anyone, a stylist who hasn’t been on a second date in a year, and the relationship that starts when they’re stranded in a cabin together…
Cowboy Dylan Royal is good at two things: whistling and caring for cattle. When his cows are being attacked by an unknown wild animal, he calls Texas Parks & Wildlife for help. He wasn’t expecting a beautiful mammologist to show up, all flirty and fun and everything Dylan didn’t know he wanted in his life.
Hazel Brewster has gone on more first dates than anyone in Grape Seed Falls, and she thinks maybe Dylan deserves a second… Can they find their way through wild animals, huge life changes, and their emotional pasts to find their forever future?
Rating: Mild+. Mild crude humor; mild kissing; mild sensuality; mild (nonsexual) violence or horror.
Rounding up from 3.5 stars.
I liked this book better than the previous one in this series. I was amused that someone that never goes on a second date decided so quickly that Dylan was worth a shot, even before having a first date. Hazel is pretty forthcoming and though she is quite flirtatious she doesn’t really want to play games.
Dylan is sweet and tries to overcome his introvert nature by matching Hazel’s honesty. The best part of Dylan is his relationship with one year old Greta. He is so sweet with her and I wonder who wouldn’t fall in love with him after catching him dancing with Greta. So cute. The book is worth reading just to see Dylan with Greta every chance he gets.
The romance between Dylan and Hazel moves quickly so that they are both privately contemplating a serious future after just a short few weeks. But they each have baggage from their pasts to deal with too.
I was happy to see the Royal brothers moving on with their lives and making a future for themselves. It will help all of them to get over their problems with their father I think. I’m looking forward to Austin’s story.
The book is listed as inspirational romance but the religious themes are really light. There are no sermons, just some personal prayers and church attendance.
Sex: some kisses
