Caroline Faye Wright is a twenty-nine-year-old bank teller with abandonment issues, a stubborn will, and a soft spot for doing what people ask. After losing both of her grandparents in the span of a year, their family farm falls into the less-than-capable hands of her father. Caroline gives up graduate school to come back home and help her father with the farm.
That was six years ago. Now, she splits her time between those chores and her job in a nearby town… not the fulfilling career she once dreamed of. So when her boyfriend of five years cheats on her, Caroline decides she is through—through giving everything to anyone in need when all she gets in return is crap. That is, until she meets Eliot James. He is sex on a stick, and she can’t help but fall.
This cowboy is too good to be true. In traditional form, her self-depreciating, self-destructive ways get between her goals and what might be the best thing to ever happen in her life. If Caroline can’t get to the root of the problem and deal with the issues getting in her way, she may lose him forever. That is the last thing she wants.
