Summary

Single mother, Jade Miller, has just witnessed a murder. Now, set to testify against the cold-blooded killer, Jade must be placed under protection. While she is grateful to the kind folks who’ve offered to take in her and her son, Jade is surprised to find the man escorting them from L.A. to Montana is Gavin Emerson. A womanizing, far-too-attractive-for-his-own-good, rebel cowboy. Jade assures Gavin that she has sworn off men until her son is grown, but all too soon she finds herself fighting back feelings for the man who’s agreed to care for them.

Gavin wants nothing to do with ranch life. Not since the ugly fallout he had with his father over eight years ago. But when he agrees to come back, harboring Jade and her son for a time, Gavin falls in love with life on the land once again. Above that, he finds his heart has been captured by his lovely house guest, Jade Miller.

After reservations on both parts, the two are finally ready to open up and give their new-found love a try. Only they aren’t in the clear just yet, and as a dark and deadly threat falls upon them, Gavin finds that his bad-boy past may have led the danger right to their door.

*Though this novel is considered clean romance, it does contain passionate kissing scenes and a few mild curse words.*

   


My Review

I read the first book in this series, Cassie's Cowboy Crave, last year and really enjoyed it. Occasionally I crave an Adult Romance, with all the romance and tension, but without it getting too detailed. I still like them clean and that is pretty hard to find. So, I was happy to find this series.

I could definitely relate to Jade as a mother and her desire to give the world to her son. She doesn't have an easy life, but she is tough and has found a way to provide for her and her son. I really admire that in characters. She wasn't perfect, which I also prefer in my characters. Gavin is a little rough around the edges. He is swoon worthy and I do have a thing for cowboys, so he's pretty much an ideal hero. He was a little rude in the beginning, but he softens up. I really love Gavin's family! I loved them in the first book, so it was fun to have them in this one too. I did feel that some of Jade's and Gavin's concerns were a little strong to be realistic, but I also understood why she would feel as she did. The ending was a little suspenseful. I felt that the villain actually had an unrealistically easy time in the beginning, but that changes.

The romance was definitely the focal point of this book, so if that's not your kind of story then these are not for you. Some parts did make me blush and also pushed my line  for being clean, but as far as in the Adult genre, it is definitely clean in comparison. There is lots of making out, some innuendo, and, unlike the first book, suggestive scenes.

Overall, this was a sweet read. I didn't like it as much as I liked the first book in the series. If you enjoy reading books by Marcia Lynn McClure and Adult Romance then I would recommend this book and the series. I'm now wondering which brother will be the focus of the next story. I guess I'll have to wait and find out.
