Synopsis of the book:
When Meg Cole’s father dies unexpectedly, she’s forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of his 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 knows he ought to resent the woman who’s determined to take from him the only job he ever wanted. 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 and earn her love.
Just when Meg realizes she can no longer deny the depth of her feelings for Bo, their fragile bond is broken by a force from Meg’s past. Can their relationship — and their belief that God can work through every circumstance — survive?
I was moved by this love story and the passion that developed between Meg and Bo. It did take me some time to get invested in their relationship, but when I did, their struggles came alive for me. The romance definitely made my heart beat a little faster.
I really liked how the author showcased Meg’s anxiety. It is something that many people deal with, but I haven’t read too many stories that manage to blend this weakness into a strong character. I loved the faith thread where Meg went to God when she struggled.
I also loved Bo. His fierce protectiveness where Meg was concerned, his strength emotionally, his determination to do the right thing… Okay, I pretty much just liked him overall. 🙂
Even though it took me a little time to become invested in their relationship, I have to say… Wow. Their romance was tangible.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
The sweet and swoony romance.
What I didn’t like about this book:
That it took me so long to get into their story.
My rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Would I recommend this book to others? Yes. I loved the sweetness of the romance and the little bit of suspense mixed in. This is the first book in the series and I have already picked up the second book to continue reading about the Porter family.
