Jack Valentini isn’t my type.

Sexy, brooding cowboys are fine in the movies, but in real life, I prefer a suit and tie. Proper manners. A close shave.

Jack might be gorgeous, but he’s also scruffy, rugged, and rude. He wants nothing to do with a “rich city girl” like me, and he isn’t afraid to say so.

But I’ve got a PR job to do for his family’s farm, so he’s stuck with me and I’m stuck with him. His glares. His moods. His tight jeans. His muscles.

His huge, hard muscles.

Pretty soon there’s a whole different kind of tension between us, the kind that has me misbehaving in barns, trees, and pickup trucks. I’ve never done anything so out of character—but it feels too good to stop.

And the more I learn about the grieving ex-Army sergeant, the better I understand him. Losing his wife left him broken and bitter and blaming himself. He doesn’t think he deserves a second chance at happiness.

But he’s wrong.

I don’t need to be his first love. If only he’d let me be his last.

“Not that I wasn’t willing to give it up.  At that moment, I’d have flung my panties across the barn like a scone at a political fundraiser.”

I loved this book from beginning to end.  Margot Thurber Lewiston, city-girl extraordinaire lands herself at the Valentini Brothers Farm for a work gig.  It was not love at first sight between Margot and Jack Valentini – not even close.  I enjoyed watching the gradual fall.  This book had it all for me – laugh out loud moments, trials and of course a happily ever after.

I am a huge Melanie Harlow fan, she has a way of drawing me into her stories, as it should be, and once I start one I don’t put the book down until it’s over and I’m jonesing for more.
