Some men are hard to quit.
Beth Schaefer isn't just on the partnership track at her Portland law firm, she's in the lead. Unfortunately, she's about to fall at the finish line. When she makes a list of breakdown destinations, she can't even manage to choose between them. Which means she has to come home to Wild Horse, Idaho, for her breakdown. She has exactly 18.5 days of accumulated vacation time to devote to it.
Evan O'Donnell's girlfriend took off when their baby girl was a month old, and that's just fine by him. His daughter Gracie is all the female companionship he needs, thank you very much. Beth Schaefer's not even in the running. Eight years ago, her parents convinced her to give him up, and he's had enough of snobs and women who don't stick. Evan's a blue-collar guy from his too-broad shoulders to his scuffed work boots, and he's nobody's white knight, and nobody's hero. Not anymore.
But what if Beth isn't the only one who needs saving?

Heartwarming and Heartwrenching
I'm not always a fan of second chance romances...not because I don't think there should be a second chance, but because all the years that were lost kind of make me sad. And while I'm a little sad that Beth and Evan didn't make it work the first time around, this story of second chances is full of hope for the right ending this time around. Beth and Evan are great examples of good people who become better as they've grown up and become more comfortable with who they are now.
Beth has what should be the perfect life, but she is smart enough to recognize that something isn't right. When she returns home, she thinks it's just for a break, but she slowly realizes that she doesn't fit into her life anymore and she wants something different. Taking up with Evan again reminds both of them they can't go back...but lucky for all of us, this author has the talent to take them forward in a heartwarming and heart wrenching story.
A very strong addition to this new series and another strong performance by Tanya Eby. I look forward to the next installment of the happenings in Wild Horse, Idaho. Who will fall in love next?
