I love a hero whose world is turned upside down by his girl, and that’s exactly what happens in this one. It’s sexy, sassy, and wastes no time getting right into the romance. There’s a fine line between instalove and insta-attraction, and this one crossed it a few too many times for me – but I can’t fault either one for being so smitten! It’s a solid addition to the series and showcases the softer side of this gruff cowboy.
The story follows Willow, a city girl who comes to the country for semi-mysterious reasons. She’s not sure what to think of the town, but loves being about to help out her aging uncle. When she meets Bobby, it’s lust at first sight. He’s the kind of guy who gets a lot of attention, and his singing certainly doesn’t hurt his appeal. Bobby is smitten from the start, knowing right away that he wants to spend as much time with Willow as possible. As the two dance around their attraction, they connect on an emotional level – and then it’s on from there.
I loved seeing Bobby’s reaction to Willow; he’s a bit of a troublemaker and can be intimidating, but she brings out a whole other side to him. It was also incredibly refreshing that Bobby gets attention from women on a daily basis, but he only has eyes for one girl. This one definitely felt a bit too much like instalove – it was a lot – and the length could’ve been shorter, but it makes a nice addition to the series. Whether you’ve been reading from the start or are just getting into it, this is a sexy, STEAMY read that never gets too heavy. I received an ARC via the author and am voluntarily leaving a review of this strangers to lovers romance.
