Her Second Chance Cowboy
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This is a new to me author. I thought the plot was wonderful and moved just like it would have between two people. I adored the characters and how they tried to protect themselves from further heartache. Some may consider it slow and maybe a little repetitive, but to me is was more of laying the groundwork with a strong foundation. A chance to really come to know the characters and what made them tick.
Reese Turner comes home to Cypress Creek to visit her grandparents former home. After her grandparents passed, her father sold the property to the neighbors, the MacLachlan's. Reese is a photographer and her dream career of working for National Geographic and traveling the world just may come true. She wants to buy back the farm or at least the house and use it as her home base. Upon visiting the house, she spies a shirtless cowboy up on the roof. Oh what a sight to behold! Her fingers itch to take a picture of the natural beauty of the gorgeous man. Unfortunately the man turned out to be another than James MacLachlan, her first love and first heartbreak.
This book is written in a dual POV format. I adore this. Getting into the mind and seeing their thoughts really helps me to connect to the characters so much better. These two characters were charming and the kind that I would love to have as friends. I got lost in this book. I really hated to see it end. I REALLY hope that the author is going to write another Cypress Creek novel with Finn and Astrid. I have my fingers crossed!!!
As far as sexy goes, this had just some heavy petting. The author did a great job in fading to black and letting the reader fill in the gaps if they wanted. I would really call this slightly sexy. That being said I would only highly recommend this to someone over the age of 18.
If you adore second chance at first love, especially if the male protagonist is a cowboy, then you will definitely want to give this a try.
