Publisher's Summary

Escape to the picturesque, tiny town of Perfect, Indiana…
Paige Langford has it all: wealth, beauty, and ambition. Yet when her boyfriend’s betrayal costs her both her dream job and her reputation, she retreats to her brother’s rural home in Indiana to heal and figure out the rest of her life. There she meets Ryan Malloy, a gruff, hard-drinking cowboy whose surly temper can’t hide the pain in his eyes.
Ryan has lost it all. He is a man on the edge, haunted by war and a lost love, who finds solace in a bottle - until a job offer from his former commander provides a glimmer of hope, and a second chance for the future.
Paige has always avoided brooding bad boys like Ryan, yet he might be exactly what she needs, while Ryan, the man who thought he had nothing left to live for, is tempted to risk his battered heart one last time...

I don't usually buy books with male narrator's

I don't think male narrator's do woman's voices as well as woman do men's voices but this narrator did a good job. the story was good and kept my interest. there wasn't any excitement but as a strictly romance novel it was a good book.

Aaaawwww.. this is the sweetest story. I loved it!

"Five stars?" you ask. Yes!
This was to me, a realistic romance. The characters weren't 'perfect, but were decent people who wanted to behave decently. I don't have family experience of PTSD or related difficulties, but it felt like the author treated the hero's experience with compassion and respect.

The love scenes were perfect. They were a nice break from the recent glut of romance novels that inject sex scenes more concerned with being graphic and descriptive than romantic. Ms. Longley approaches these interactions with respect for both characters. Nobody was "dominant" or controlling and the female character wasn't a clueless little cluck waiting to be "mastered*. They were equal partners experiencing the joy of being together. Sweet is the word that comes to mind; but I don't mean that it was fluffy or without substance. This was sweet in the best sense

This book was shorter than I normally choose. But it was just right for this story. It occurs to me that many romance novels I've read lately would be improved by some trimming.

The narrator was very good. Love the Oklahoma drawl.

I highly recommend this book and look forward to future installments of this series.

Laughter & Tears

This was a truly moving story where I wanted to bang the h over the head sometimes but then realised that actually I sometimes do the same pig headed can't-go-back-on-a-decision crud she does so maybe I should shut up and let her slide :)
