Publisher's Summary

Jack Valentini isn't my type. Sexy, brooding cowboys are fine in the movies, but in real life, I prefer a suit and tie. Proper manners. A close shave. Jack might be gorgeous, but he's also scruffy, rugged, and rude. He wants nothing to do with a "rich city girl" like me, and he isn't afraid to say so. But I've got a PR job to do for his family's farm, so he's stuck with me and I'm stuck with him. His glares. His moods. His tight jeans. His muscles. His huge, hard muscles.
Pretty soon there's a whole different kind of tension between us, the kind that has me misbehaving in barns, trees, and pickup trucks. I've never done anything so out of character - but it feels too good to stop.
And the more I learn about the grieving ex-Army sergeant, the better I understand him. Losing his wife left him broken and bitter and blaming himself. He doesn't think he deserves a second chance at happiness. But he's wrong.
I don't need to be his first love. If only he'd let me be his last.

Epic love story

This book was such a welcome surprise. I haven't read from this author before so I didn't know what to expect and I was completely taken aback by the intensity and emotion brought forth by Melanie Harlow.

The premise of a broken man and a woman looking for more out of her life. I loved Margot. Her ethics and morals and penchant for hard work made her a woman to look up to. Jack was so broody and destroyed. The only woman who could break through that would be Margot. I loved everything about this story.

Rob Howard was PERFECT. His voice and pacing and tone was exactly what I would expect Jack to sound like. Renee Givens has a strong and sure voice that was just what Margot should be. They kept me engrossed in the story from beginning to end.

I FELL TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY!

I'm madly in love with this book! MH did an awesome job of creating two incredible characters that you instantly identify with in many ways and can stand up and cheer for emphatically. Jack and Margo couldn't be more opposite of what they want in a partner but they were exactly what each other needed. This is a story of second chances at love and life. This book was beyond what I expected.

If I had one criticism it would be the male narrator Rob Howard--he was just ok, but Renee Givens was superb and brought life to the characters. This book sat in my library for several months after I bought it because I knew it would be emotionally charged and I wasn't quite ready. I'm so glad I finally listened! It was emotional, yes, but it was equal parts funny, sexy, and downright one of the best books I've heard this year!
