Publisher's Summary

My heart had always done funny things around Dawson when we were teenagers, but I never knew if I was his type. And now, after all this time, he's back from Afghanistan. And boy has he filled out. When his dad put me in charge, I knew that working with him at the ranch this summer could be tense. I had no idea just how heated things would get.
My family and the ranch had always been my go-to place to sit back and unwind. And now, after my rough tour overseas, all I wanted to do was relax. Elle Montgomery was the last thing my nerves needed. Honeyed and hot, she'd never noticed me when we were younger. Now? It's hard not to go after what I've always wanted.

Love is blind

I liked the book and the narrator was absolutely wonderful.
Is love blind? Elle and Dawson loved each other...from afar. Dawson came back from war broken and it took his little sister to rid him of his demons and open his heart, to feel worthy, to love Elle.

This story was really sweet. I would like it to be longer. The one sex scene was hot, but shorts like this one needs less story and more sex or tell the whole story and make the story worthwhile to purchase. Veronica Maxim has a great and poetic writing voice--I'd like to see a longer book from her. Jodi Hockinson did a credible Southern Accent. Stories like this one, though, need two narrators.

I paid for this book and am writing this review to help others decide whether to purchase or not. I hope this has helped you.
