She’s desperate to start over. He represents the past she wants to leave behind. But falling in love is never about logic.
Macie’s divorce has left her at rock-bottom, and she uproots everything and takes her young daughter to visit Prosperity Ranch for the summer. Every kid deserves to know her grandparents, right? Macie hopes for some healing time, even if she is staying at her ex in-laws ranch. What she isn’t expecting is her ex-husband’s brother, Holt Prosper, to fit every ideal she’s ever hoped for in a man.
While I found the premise for this story to be unique from what I typical read in this genre I didn’t love it. Mostly because there was just so much angst. For those that think this story would never happen, I can attest that it does since my brother married his ex-wife’s half sister. His in-laws ended up being his in-laws again. It feels weird but it happens.
The drama of the story was big though. Sick grandma, trying to mend relationships (for better or worse), falling for the ex’s brother…. I enjoyed reading the book for the most part but when I just say the plot out loud it kind feels like a soap opera plot-line. So if you love angst and drama then this book is a good choice.
I have to say that my biggest drawback for this book was the use of the word darlin’ all the time. In a real life situation it would drive me crazy. That’s just me.
The writing is good overall as Ms. Moore’s always is.
Sex: innuendo, shotgun wedding prior to the story, some making out
Violence: a little
*I won this book in a giveaway and voluntarily chose to review it.
This is easily one of my new favorite books. So many sweet moments of family, romance, and starting over. While at first the thought of a girl with her ex husband brother sorta bothered me…once reading..it all clicked and made perfect sense. They truly were made for each other. This book is covered in chemistry and sweet clean romance. I couldn’t help but tear up a few times (in good ways). I 109% recommend this book and look forward to the next one.
