Never draw a line in the sand that you don't want crossed...
The last person Jason Mann ever expects to cross a line is sweet Meg Marvell, the woman he'd fallen for–and left–two years ago. An accidental meeting has Meg asking for answers, which he'll give if she travels hundreds of miles to her cousin's ranch where he works. Maybe making her go out of her way will help Meg understand that he's not a good guy. His rough past makes it impossible to fit into her world.
Middle-child Meg Marvell has spent her life brokering peace and bending to avoid conflict. She lives cautiously, rarely takes risks, steps back when confronted. And she is damned tired of it. It’s time to tackle life on her own terms. Break free. And what better way than to answer Jason Mann’s challenge? He doesn’t believe she’ll travel to her cousin’s ranch to discuss why he disappeared from her life, so she does him one better and hires on. She didn’t want him back—she wants to prove that she can rise to a challenge. Unfortunately, the attraction they once shared has not withered and died as she’d once thought…if anything it’s stronger than ever.
Second chance romances are truly my favorite and this is a great one. Meg Marvell thought she and Jason Mann had a great thing going. Then he left without a word. Seeing him again after 2 years is a shock but she needs answers and she's determined to get them. The only way he will agree to answer her questions is if she comes back to her cousin's ranch with him. Once there she shocks him by taking a job and pretty much ignoring him. Seeing her everyday is slowly driving him crazy and if he doesn't get her to leave soon he will lose his resolve to protect her by leaving her alone.
A great read and one I recommend.
Second Chance at Love
I truly enjoyed The Cowboy Rides Away by Jeannie Watt, the third book in her Marvells of Montana. This is a second chance story with Meg Marvell accidently running into Jason Mann a year after their break up. Meg is at loose ends after losing her teaching job, unsure of what direction she wants to follow. After her encounter with Jason, she takes up his challenge and travels a few hundred miles to work at her cousins’ ranch, outside of Marietta, Montana. Working together Meg and Jason find that their attraction and chemistry did not die out during their separation, but is actually stronger. Jason needs to figure out how to tame his demons before he can give Meg the love she deserves.
I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. Ms. Watt drew me in and did not let go until I read the last page. I definitely recommend this book to other readers and look forward to reading more books by Ms. Watt.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
