My Review

*ARC Provided for an Honest Review*

I enjoyed the book for the most parts. There were some times that it was dragging as it carried on but my overall conclusion when I finished reading it was that it was a Great Read.

Also, it was like an obvious love story that's why I liked it. There were already signs that they should be together and when the death of Michaela's sister and her husband, it was even more obvious that fate really wants them together and I liked that. What I didn't like though is the hold backs of the characters. There were a lot of assumptions that I just don't see why. This made the book a little dragging for me.

The book went really well until that drama towards the end. Even I wasn't anticipating such but it happened. I remember thinking something like "Whoa really?" while I was reading the last few chapters but I am a sucker for a happy ending and I am even more of a sucker for second chance romance so I took this book quiet well when it ended. I'm so looking forward to the next installment of the series!

“Okay.” Michaela breathed the word.

“You’ll marry me?” Gabe didn’t bother hiding his surprise.

She drained her glass with a wince. “Damn, I’ve never liked champagne.” Michaela headed for the fridge. “Do you have any beer in here?”

He was more uncertain now than he’d been before he started thinking about this crazy idea. “Yeah. Lone Star. Get me one, too.” When she turned with the longneck bottles in hand, he chuckled. “A two hundred dollar bottle of fine French bubbly, but we’d rather drink Texas beer.”

“I’m a country girl, Gabe. You’ve always known that.” She handed him one of the

bottles. “I’ve actually been thinking the same thing--that if I were married the judge would’ve given me Jesse. But the only man I can think of is Cash Nelson.” She twisted the top off the beer and took a long draw. “But he would read too much into the agreement. I never considered you. Hell, the whole town knows I can’t even stand you. How is this gonna work?”

Gabe didn’t like the way his heart pinched at her words. He tossed the cap from his beer beside hers on the island top and took a drink. “We’ll have to convince them otherwise. We have a history and we’ve been working together”--he grinned as he remembered the custody hearing-- “or against each other for weeks now. Everyone knows there’s a fine line between love and hate.”
