Publisher Description


There’s tortured. And there’s Garth Black. 

His life has been a constant carousel of tragedy and disappointment, including his love life. Of course, applying the term “love” to Garth’s conquests is a gross misuse of the word. Some people were made to give and accept love, and others weren’t. Garth Black redefines the “others” category. He’s made a vow that the day he meets a woman who could sucker him into falling in love will be the day he runs away. 

Garth’s plan has one flaw. What happens when he’s already fallen hard for a girl before the warning signs and red flags go up? What happens when the love he’s avoided his entire life brings him to his knees? What happens when Garth Black lets the dirtiest four letter word he’s ever known into his dark, lonely life?

This cowboy’s about to find out he can control some things, and he can’t control others. Number one on the what he can’t control list?

Really Good Writing!

I'll admit I was a little disappointed that this book was not focused on Rowan and Jesse's relationship, but after reading the book, I realize I would not have wanted it to end any other way. All the loose ends were tied up and the writing was incredible as always. I couldn't put it down!

Why is the third book free but not the second?

3 stars for Garth and his prideful self of unworthiness.

I got to hand it Nicole the word verbiage is great. She has some clever quotes worth saving and using later.
Stubborn, arrogant, defiant, and an alcoholic are just a few terms to describe Garth. Negative and angry are the ones that stick to mind. Garth is a very dark and depressing character. He is also too prideful to ask or take help from his friends. Garth has a tendency to beat himself up with unworthiness. He wants Josie but he thinks he is no good for her. For the love of all that's good be a man and turn your life around by stop womanizing, fighting, and drinking.
Not a fan of excuses as to why a man believes he is not deserving enough for a woman. Please share with me Josie's attributes that make her a better person than Garth.
This story was emotionally draining. I felt no connection with the characters because they spent so much time denying themselves the love they had for each other. The entire theme of the story was about proving that when love love finds you who is to stay you are underserving of it. Also to stop fighting it because you get to choose who you love. Stop believing you are unworthy and accept that someone cares enough to love you despite your upbringing.
The message was good but the delivery fell flat. It was a long and arduous journey of self pity that made the story very depressing.
