Welcome to Gold Valley, Oregon, where a rough-and-tumble rancher and the girl next door are about to learn that opposites attract
Olivia Logan has a plan: win back her ex by making him see what he’s missing. But first she needs to find a man who’s willing to play along. With his laid-back cowboy charm and knack for getting under her skin, Luke Hollister is an unlikely hero—but he wants her help convincing her father to sell him land, which means he needs her as much as she needs him.
Luke likes his life—and his women—uncomplicated. So why does good girl Olivia heat his blood like no one else? She’s always been off-limits, but the more time they spend as Gold Valley’s hottest new “couple,” the more real it’s starting to feel. Luke was supposed to help her win back another man…not keep her in his arms. But now that he has her there, he’s not sure he’ll ever let go.

Chemistry, banter that are hot, fun to read
The chemistry between Olivia and Luke sizzles from the start, building to a conflagration big enough to consume all of Gold Valley... not that Olivia can see anything except her ex-fiancé and the life everyone expected them to have.
Luke's not nearly so shy, and he's definitely not blind to her attractions. In fact, she's burned bright for him since she became legal. And, she fun to pick at and verbally spar with too.
But, after watching her trip all over herself for a guy that's not keen on committing to her anytime soon, same guy that's been lime family to him while he's worked nearly 2 decades on the man's family farm, Luke offers to help. He'll take her out so her ex can see her on a date with someone else, get jealous if he really cares. Who knew she'd be so good at darts or that an innocent kiss would undo all that prim and starch that Olivia works so hard to maintain?
Tired of being good and proper, Olivia has to decide if she's gonna let the blaze consume her or put up a higher wall.
Both Luke and Olivia have some major issues, but its up to each whether to tackle them head-on or let it freeze them in time, emotionally incapable of moving forward.
