Publisher's Summary

There’s complicated. And then there’s Rowen Sterling.
After numbing pain for the past five years with boys, alcohol, and all-around apathy, she finds herself on a Greyhound bus to nowhere Montana the summer after she graduates high school. Her mom agreed to front the bill to Rowen’s dream art school, but only if Rowen proves she can work hard and stay out of trouble at Willow Springs Ranch. Cooking breakfast at the crack of dawn for a couple dozen ranch hands and mucking out horse stalls are the last things in the world Rowen wants to spend her summer doing.
Until Jesse Walker saunters into her life wearing a pair of painted-on jeans, a cowboy hat, and a grin that makes something in her chest go boom-boom. Jesse’s like no one else, and certainly nothing like her. He’s bright and shiny to her dark and jaded.
Rowen knows there’s no happily-ever-after for the golden boy and the rebel girl, even happily-right-now is a stretch, so she tries to forget and ignore the boy who makes her feel things she’s not sure she’s ready to feel. But the more she pushes him away, the closer he seems to get. The more she convinces herself she doesn’t care, the harder she falls.
When her dark secrets refuse to stay locked away, Rowen realizes it’s not just everyone else she needs to be honest with. It’s herself.
Recommended for mature listeners due to moderate language and sexuality. *

Good story narrator just okay

Overall the plot of the story was good but I just felt the book deserved a better narrator. The narrator Kate Metroka tried but her voice was just too young for me. I realize the main character is only 18 but Kate sounded as if she was 13 years old. It wasn't horrible enough that I couldn't finish the book, it just annoyed me at the more "mature" parts in the book. Regardless, the story kept my interest. Its about a girl whose turned to drugs, sex, and a black wardrobe due to neglect from her only parent. Her mother who cares less for her gives an ultimatum that if she wants to go to a fancy art school than she needs to prove herself over the summer when she is sent to a cowboy ranch. You realize the mother most likely just wanted her out of her hair and probably had no intentions of letting her go either way.
The summer ends up being a great thing because the ranch is run by a loving family who show her what its like to have people who care and understand. She falls in love with the son. He helps her start to see that she isn't worthless. There is a lot more twists & turns to the story. So, if you can get past the young narrator than this sweet love story is worth it.
