Wealthy cowboy, James MacLachlan, is content running his massive family ranch and starting an equine therapy program for special needs children. After his mother died in childbirth, and witnessing his father’s destruction at the loss of true love, James sticks to casual affairs. Marriage and children are risks he won’t take.

Reese Turner visits Cypress Creek, Texas, to complete a photo assignment for National Geographic and buy back her grandparents’ cottage. After disastrous romances, she’s sworn off men to focus on her career. Marriage and the babies she longs for can wait. When she runs into an old flame, she decides she can live out a fantasy, then leave town to pursue her dreams.

But love doesn’t play by the rules...

By Molly July 22, 2020

A very romantic, intriguing read. Lee’s writing is so vivid, and I was literally transported into every scene by all five senses. She definitely got the feel of a small Texas town—along with it’s scrumptious cowboy hero—right. Her prose is so beautiful and poetic.

The heroine was spunky and likable, ...more

By Melinda June 22, 2020

I really enjoyed this story. There was just enough tension to keep me interested and plot that was not overplayed like so many other romances. I loved the treasure hunt aspect and how it kept the story going.

3.5 stars

Ms Lee is a new to me author and this is a book I picked up off of Net Galley based on description alone. The premise of two people reconnecting was too much to resist.

I liked Reese and James and enjoyed seeing them reconnect, deal with misunderstandings, get in their own way and try to fi ...more

By Mindy June 27, 2020

Very good read, there's humor, feels, and steaminess (but not too much, I'd say PG-13 rated, nicely heated but not too hot). Reese and James were friends since childhood when she visited her grandparents, growing into high school sweethearts but a bad move by James and Reese's parents moving her awa ...more

By Paige July 16, 2020

I loved the relationship between the characters in the book. They are both to each other considered, “the one who got away”, so it is always interesting to see how the author will build on that and where it will go. There is obvious tension happening between the characters and you an easily feel to ...more
