Two people in different places in life.
Full-time fireman and part-time rancher Caleb is living the bachelor’s dream and staying rent-free in his best friend’s place. Too bad it’s because he lost his house to a tornado and his best friend’s sister is the one that got away. At least she doesn’t visit often—the last thing he needs is to show her she was right about him: he’s going nowhere fast. But when her cheating fiancé kicks her out, she has no place to go except her brother’s suddenly too-crowded ranch house.
After a streak of bad decisions, Brigit has to slink back home to nurse her wounds and find a job. To complete her humiliation, there’s no way she can avoid the first love she walked away from years ago—because he’s sleeping on the other side of her wall. At least it’s only a matter of time before she’s gone again. After all, there’s nothing in this town for her but bullies and cow patties…except a fireman in cowboy boots who melts her heart and makes her consider love again.
He’s not leaving. She’s not staying. If the reason they can’t be together is so simple, why is it so hard to remember?

When Brigit has to return home after being humiliated by her cheating ex-fiance, she never imagined that she would be rooming with Caleb, the boy she walked away from all those years ago. Lost and untethered, Brigit's plans don't include sticking around Moore any longer than it takes to put her life back together again. She soon finds out however that you can take the girl off the farm, but you can't ever really take the farm out of the girl.
This was a quick fun read, but with lots of feels. Caleb and Brigit have history, but it's a history that keeps throwing up road blocks into their present. It's also a history that neither can walk away from again.
While Caleb works to re-build his family farm, Brigit works to rebuild her life. Too bad it takes them so long to figure out that those two things go hand in hand.
This was a fun nod to cowboy romance that also happens to be so much more.
