Jordan Hawthorne thought she had it all until a surprise for her fiancé turns into losing everything that she ever wanted. She flees her home in Charlotte, North Carolina to take a new job in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and make a new start where her ex-fiancé can’t find her. Jordan is just beginning to adjust to her new life in the middle of nowhere when a small town cowboy walks in and disrupts it all.

Honestly I struggled with this book at the start. I couldn’t get over the instant love theme. I know love at first sight can happen for some people. But after everything Jordan had been through, it seemed to much like rebound love than real love to me. However I stuck with it because I wanted to know what would happen to our leading couple. And things did turn out for the best.
Tom is one lovable cowboy and I just couldn’t get enough of him. He was so sweet and reminded me of a big cuddly teddy bear.
Oh the added suspense towards the end really helped move this story along since I was so tempted to DNF it. However the mystery of knowing what was going to happen and just wanting to know kept me glued til the very end.
