When Cash Atwood is sent home from his full-time gig at Bullfighters One because of reasons he’s not ready to reconcile, going home to Dillon Creek is his only choice. The Atwood Ranch is the last place he wants to be. Short-fused, full of anger, and out of options, Cash’s only outlet is women, and he uses them to his advantage.
But when Scarlet returns to Dillon Creek to take care of her late grandmother’s affairs, Cash is completely taken aback. He’s spent years agonizing over why she left town that night and never looked back.
Scarlet Brockmeyer is a leader, a dealmaker, and a divorcée with a tough exterior. Although her career was most likely responsible for the loss of her marriage, this real estate mogul from the East Coast isn’t looking for another husband.
She’s not in quaint little Dillon Creek to make friends. She is here to take care of the house, put it on the market, and sell it. The house is full of good childhood memories, ones she’d rather not feel. But in the process of going through her grandmother’s house, she uncovers town secrets, lost loves, and a once-unbreakable bond with a boy she used to love.
A twist, the nail in the coffin, pushes Cash and Scarlet separate ways, and they both know there’s no turning back.
One decision leads to the train wreck they don’t see coming.
Will they be able to resolve their pasts together and see their young love for what it really is, or will the people they’ve become destroy something that never really had a chance to begin?
In the mood for a small town second chance romance, then Leaving Scarlet is for you! There’s Scarlet who’s recently divorced and just lost her grandmother. She’s got a mother who has her own set of issues and hasn’t been the mother figure to Scarlet throughout her life. She’s thrown herself into the amazing career she’s built up but then that comes crumbling down too. She heads back to Dillon Creek to take care of loose ends and move on with her life. The only issue is that it won’t be as easy as she thought especially when her old love Cash is back too. Cash is having problems of his own and is back at the family ranch to heal from wounds he suffered the bullfighting circuit he’s on. Hoping to sort his life out leads to him and Scarlet going through so much with each other and figuring out where it all went wrong. They’ve both got to face those past demons and accept what will be discovered while searching for answers to questions that have been lingering for far too long. I enjoyed reading and seeing their connection and fight for not only their love but to gain back the life they deserve to have.
