This is book 2 of the Ridding Tall Series. It is my first of this series as I have not read any of the others.
♥ Story ♥
19 years ago Cat Hayden left her home and heart behind for greener pastures. As we all know, the grass is rarely greener on the other side. Cat finds herself back home to care for her aging grandmother, with a new face and a new outlook. Her love from the past, Blake McBride, is still around but now with battle scars of his own as well as a teen daughter. Despite their past misadventures, the love they felt for each other never left their hearts.
Many obstacle get in the couples way. Some that makes your heart hurt for them and some that make you want to crawl through the page and punch a bitch in the face. The ex is a despicable person that will provoke the beast in you, just be warned.
♥ Author ♥
This is my first read by Cheyenne McCray. She is definitely good at writing the villains, cause I really wanted to stab one of them with a fork. I would for sure read another work from this author and more than likely the next one will be another in this series.
♥ Narrator(s) ♥
David Quimby's voice works perfectly for a western. It has that raw edge to it that just sounds rugged with a layer of dust or dirt you would see on the clothing of a cowboy.

🏇 Cat Hayden has been away from her childhood home since her senior year of high school. She has recovered from an accident that has left her almost unrecognizable and insecure. It is been a long time but she decides to come back to care for her ailing grandmother.
Blake and Cat were together all through high school until Cat skipped town without so much as a goodbye to Blake. Now, Blake is a well-to-do rancher with a 14-year-old daughter from a previous marriage.
Cat and Blake do reconnect almost immediately. Blake's daughter is in Cat's 4H riding class. Will his daughter, Demi, ever get used to the idea of her father with anyone but her mother? Will the excitement of being back together continue to be a thrill? Or will outside forces ruin any dreams, plans or goals for the newish couple?
This is a really nice story with relatable characters. There are some mature/intimate scenarios that are not suitable for younger audiences. I would only recommend it for ages 18+
Dave Quimby is an exceptional performer. The majority of the characters in this book are female and his performance gave each of them a unique voice. His portrayal of Blake was perfect – I could envision Blake (the cover helped as well *wink*)
I will give this book and overall rating of 4.5 stars. Wonderful !

This story is a wonderful, emotionally charged, second chance romance. It is so sensitively written and narrated that the listener cannot help but relate to and feel for the characters. This story doesn't shy away from harder emotions and harder issues but still has the HEA the reader hopes for.
Cat and Blake have a strong history and a rekindled attraction that cannot be ignored. While they are the same people they once were, they are also very different. They have life experiences that colour the way they think and behave as well as affect the choices that they make. Life doesn't usually tie up issues in pretty little bows, and that certainly is true in this story. Cat and Blake have to decide whether they can pursue their second chance at love or meet the demands their lives have on them.
Overall, this is an enjoyable, touching romance with major feel-good factor.
