Book Blurb

When Texas beauty Dahlia Montgomery and her best friend journey to Idaho for a change of scenery for the summer, the last thing she expects to encounter is Luke McRae, a lean, rugged cowboy intent on sweeping her off her feet and into his bed. Dahlia can’t resist his rugged cowboy swagger and his sky blue eyes, even though she knows he can break her heart.

Luke is part owner and manager of the legendary Double-Deuce Ranch in the Idaho mountains. With the ranch, an alcoholic ex-wife, a shrewish mother and three kids to worry about, he has no interest in romance. But that doesn’t mean he has given up casual sex with beautiful women....But is either he or Dahlia prepared for the consequences of a sexy summer romp?

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

This story starts out horribly for Dahlia Montgomery.  Her life is falling apart in one of the worst ways.  She ends up back in her hometown trying to pick up the pieces.  You find yourself in her corner from the beginning.  When her friend Piggy drags her to Idaho for the summer, it is definitely a needed change.
She comes face to face with Luke McRae.  He is a rancher that literally knocks her off her feet.  He comes across as totally arrogant.  I’m not a fan in the beginning.  In fact, it takes me a while to like them together.  He is such a jerk and doesn’t treat her very well.  I’m surprised that Luke is extremely successful on the ranch and other aspects in his life, yet he can’t take control of his own personal life.  His mother dictates a lot.  That is a complete turn off for me.  That was a huge strike against him.  I didn’t like the dynamics of his family.  They were extremely exclusive and closed minded to anyone considered an outsider no matter if they were the best person ever.

I like the basic idea of the storyline.  There was a lot that each character had to deal with as the story unfolded.  I liked Dahlia immensely.  Even by the end she was trying to do the best she could to protect herself.  The reader truly understands.  It was a crazy read, not what I was expecting.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
