She can save his ranch…
But can he forgive her?
Maya Burton knows she’s the last person rancher Caleb Dunne wants to see. After all, she survived the crash that killed his sister, and then left town. Now she has to convince the stubborn cowboy that she can help him save his ranch. But once she earns his trust—and his heart—will she be able to walk away?
Reunited with the Cowboy
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was just an intriguing story. I felt for both Caleb and Maya. Young lovers that were broken apart by an accident. Maya was driving the car that killed Caleb's sister Julie. Many believed that Maya was drunk thus losing control of her car. Caleb is distraught at the loss and in his anger, he tells Maya to leave and he never wants to see her again.
Caleb joins the Marine and serves for 10 years. He now has more demons that he has to face beside the ultimate of destroying his relationship with Maya. Maya makes a home in Colorado and earns a PhD in wildlife biology. She is sent back to Shelter Creek when several ranchers suffer losses due to mountain lions attacking their herds.
When Caleb and Maya meet up again after a decade apart, the conflict begins all over again. They try to overcome the past and return Bar D ranch (Caleb's ranch) back into one of the finest in the area after it has fallen onto hard times since Julie's death.
These two wonderful characters are so broken on the inside. Can they overcome their past to let their love reconnect and grow again? This and several other issues arise in this story that kept me glued to my e-reader. I felt a connection with both of these characters. The author wrote in such a manner that just drew me into the Shelter Creek world and the plight that Caleb and Maya face.
I so appreciated the dual POV format. Getting into both characters' thought processing really helped me to identify with them. I could really understand their positions on the subject in the plot.
I really felt one with the story. I really felt like I was there right in the middle of the story. I so look forward to more in this series. I hope that Jace (Caleb's best friend) is next.
I highly recommend this story to anyone.
