Publisher's Summary

Rex Braden is wealthy, hard-working, and fiercely loyal. Sweat at his brow, he works the family ranch by day, then kicks back at night with part time lovers who require nothing more than his physical presence a few times each week. But that was before. Before Jade Johnson, the daughter of the man his father has been feuding with for over 40 years, moves back into town.
After ditching a horrific relationship - and her veterinary practice in the process - Jade Johnson returns to the safety of her small hometown and finally finds her footing. That is...until her horse is injured and Rex Braden comes to her rescue. The last thing she needs is a bull-headed, too-handsome-for-his-own-good Braden complicating her life.
Despite the angry family history, sparks fly between Rex and Jade, and attitudes follow. Fifteen years of stifled, forbidden love stirs a surge of passion too strong for either to deny - and the rebel in each of them rears its powerful head. Loyalties are tested, and relationships are strained. Rex and Jade are about to find out if true love really can conquer all.

Awesome story!

I loved this book and the one before this. It had the right amount of sex scenes and regular relationship interactions. I will definitely read all the other books in the series.

A solid five-star listen/read.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audio-book by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Loyal to a fault, money to burn, handsome as all get out, and yet, one of the loneliest men you will ever know. Sexy Rexy is an understatement, but I love the nickname given to him by Jade Johnson’s best friend. This book is so good, I don’t even know where to start. I love how these books continually pull me into their world.

Rex Braden and Jade Johnson have been attracted to each other since they were kids, but a feud between their fathers has kept them apart for years. Jade eventually moved away to go to college and become a top notch vet, while Rex stayed behind on his family’s ranch in Colorado to help his widowed father run it. He never regretted his choice to honor his father’s wishes and stay away from ‘the Johnson girl’, until Jade returned home after a bad break-up and they discover their feelings for one another have been way more than puppy love all along.

Before long, it’s evident that ignoring each other is not an option. Neither of them know the exact circumstances of the feud between their families and neither of them wants to break their fathers’ hearts. They agree to date clandestinely until they can come up with a way to break through the barriers between the two families. The problem with this plan is that there are too many Bradens and they are all too smart, as well as the fact that Jade’s mother also knows her daughter very well. There’s a rough road ahead for Jade and Rex, and there is no smooth sailing for them.

Melissa Foster’s characters always draw me into their stories, but Rex and Jade literally tore their way into my heart. B.J. Harrison does an excellent job narrating, as always. I’m not sure what I will do if/when this series ends, these characters are all like family to me now. If you love Melissa’s writing, as I do, you will not want to miss this audio-book/book.
