Strong-willed, successful and determined, Callan Matthews is the queen of organization, detail, and planning. Clay, her fun-loving husband of 13 years, refers to her as Ms. Business. Unfortunately, unbridled chaos runs amuck in the deep, dark places of her heart as she struggles to keep herself together. She contemplates how she ended up at a place in her life where Clay is tugging at the last few threads keeping her from completely unraveling. It isn't his ghastly snoring, his inability to pick up after himself or the tonal quality his belching repertoire is gaining on a daily basis that is pushing her toward the edge of a breakdown. It is a secret Callan refuses to reveal.
Easy-going cowboy Clay Matthews is a respected college professor, a favorite among family and friends, and completely baffled by his wife. He thought he knew everything there was to know about this woman. Suddenly, she's turned into a mystifying female he barely understands. Clay would give just about anything to recapture the feelings they used to share, but Callan seems to want no part of it. Just when he decides to get to the root of the problem no matter the outcome, he discovers his wife has harbored a secret nearly too painful to bear.
Will their love be strong enough to withstand a revelation that will rock the foundation of their marriage?

Heart of Clay
Started out really loving the story...kind of started dragging, then better again. I feel it could've been condensed. This is a long read that lost my attention during some of the chapters. A good story overall, just not a book that made me not want to put it down.
Heart of Clay
This book started out so strong and really held my attention, but somewhere along the line, the author just seemed to lose sight of the characters and it seemed liked forced drama. I finally quit reading. The start was refreshing...what many feel 13 years of marriage, then the churlish little acts to real irritate one another...but then the characters got lost.
I fell in love with this book!
i am usually not one for romance novels, but seeing that this one was free, I decided to give it a try. Boy, i was in for a ride. this story sent me through whirlwinds of emotions --happy, sad, angry, and everything else-- and i couldn't put it down. i became immersed in clay and callan's life together and their struggles as well as their good times. the author did a magnificent job of developing all of the characters and creating a humerous story with jokes and Jake specifically, as well as throwing some amazing life lessons in during Callan and Clay's hardships. Wonderful read and i will definitely be checking out some of this author's other stories!
