Meg and Bo make a *cute* couple. I think they are about the cutest book couple I have ever read. I mean seriously. Cowboy meets millionaire heiress that could care less about being Texas’s most eligible bachelorette and wants more to get out of this rich lifestyle and back to her humble apartment. I could so easily identify with Meg, she’s a simple girl put in surroundings that immediately challenge and raise all kinds of insecurities.
Bo is pretty close to a perfect hero. I love an observant hero and Bo knew how to treat a lady. His mama taught him right! Sure, I like the flawed or bad-boy book hero, but every once in a while, it’s nice to see a break in the mold and have a genuinely good guy. The adoration almost oozed…in a good way. *wink*
The romance is satisfying. The writing top notch. The characters so incredibly loveable. The plot tempting me back again and again. The dialogue smooth and subplots seamless. I loved it. So much to enjoy and sigh over and just plain love watching unfold. Very much worth the investment of time!
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the author and publishers for my copy to influence/review.
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*More about the novel...
When Meg Cole’s father dies unexpectedly, she becomes the majority shareholder of his oil company and the single inheritor of his fortune. Though Meg is soft-spoken and tenderhearted–more interested i
n art than in oil–she’s forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of her father’s empire.
The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father’s thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.
Bo’s determined to resent the woman who’s decided to rob him of his dream. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them–her wealth, his unworthiness, her family’s outrage–and earn the right to love her.
But just when Meg begins to realize that Bo might be the one thing on the ranch worth keeping, their fragile bond is viciously broken by a force from Meg’s past. Can their love–and their belief that God can work through every circumstance–survive?
