Grit is a standalone romance from USA Today Bestselling author, Elizabeth Hunter.
He’s been patient; she’s been busy. Patience is running out.
Melissa Oxford is a widow with a ranch, an orange grove, a goat-obsessed ten-year-old, and not enough time. She doesn’t have time to make friends. She doesn’t have time to stop and chat. And she definitely does not have time for a boyfriend.
Which is fine, because Cary Nakamura is far from being a boy. Cary’s the man who helped Melissa plant her trees. The friend who keeps offering advice even when she’s too stubborn to take it.
He’s also the man who kissed Melissa in broad daylight on a sidewalk in Metlin, California, smack in the face of God and everyone.
But while Melissa may spend a little too long dreaming about Cary from a distance, she knows the kind of passion he promises is more than she can handle.
She just doesn’t have the time.
But sometimes, no matter how busy you are, life makes you stop. It pulls you up short and makes you see things a little more clearly. Things like…
The people you can count on.
The dreams you keep pushing away.
And the passion that can’t be denied.
Emotion, great characters, and a small town vibe that’s sure to make you happy.

Love on the ranch
Oh my gosh, I loved this book so much that I only let myself read a few chapters a night. I wanted to savor it. Like all Elizabeth’s book, this one did not disappoint. I especially love how strong the heroine and her daughter both are, standing up for family, community and what is right.
Loved this story! Fun and funny, but real family relationship issues and sadness too. Very fun to hear more about 7th and Main (Metlin) characters, but great stand alone story.
Wow! I love the characters! Elizabeth does it again with her attention to detail and research. Cary’s details about his hands... I love watching the growing connection between Cary and Melissa. I’m glad once he realized what he wanted he is persistent! The interactions between kid and adult were heartwarming. I love all of the relationships in within the family. And don't miss the goat trivia and jokes! Loved it!
