Twelve years ago, equestrian Olympic hopeful Olivia Canaday and her best friend, Jake Lassen, made a pinky-swear promise to reunite at the Big Marietta Fair on her thirtieth birthday and marry each other if they were both still single. But that was before they grew up and went their separate ways.
Now, after a disastrous divorce and a career-changing accident, Olivia limps home, minus her mojo, her courage and her faith in love. She retreats to her parents’ ranch, determined to play it safe, but when ex-Army helicopter pilot Jake Lassen arrives to make good on their promise, he reignites passion and hope, two things Olivia had forgotten existed.
Olivia resolves to keep Jake at arm’s length, even though the memory of his kisses keeps her up at night. She knows better than to let her heart get involved, but Jake is planning for the future. Their future. Can Jake convince her to risk it all one more time and really make this a fair to remember?
Enjoyed this book!
The angst and slow build of Jake and Olivia’s attraction kept me reading this book in one sitting. Enjoyed the dual POV and feeling the love and sexual tension between them. This was my first time reading this author, and I will be reading more in this series!
A Fair to Remember
Another hit in the Montana Fair books, a stand alone read. Loved the story of Olivia and Jake. High school best friends, who made a pinky swear that if they were single on Olivia's thirtieth birthday that they would meet back up in Marietta. They both had tragedy in their pasts that need to heal. This book will bring out all of your emotions. I love going back to Marietta to catch up with everyone, a true county fair feeling.
The characters were fantastic and the story was beautiful. A victim of abuse and a veteran with PTSD reunite. A deal made when they were children. A happy ending. Great read.
