After reading an earlier book in this companion novel series, I was really excited to jump into reading this latest novel. First I’ll start by saying that the YA market is my “happy reads” place. I read them to enjoy a lighthearted, easy read and if I discover a story that looks beyond just a sweet love story, then I’m all for it. I certainly did enjoy this novel, but it also didn’t capture my fancy in the same way its peer did. The story follows two teens on the cusp of breaking the feud between their fathers. Brie Carter has moved constantly (thanks to her dad’s work as a developer) ever since she can remember. For this reason she keeps her distance from making friends – or having a boyfriend. But that all changes with her latest move to Wyoming. There she meets Logan, a cowboy who’s not just good-looking he’s always dedicated to his family and working hard to make their life work. Needless to say, Brie takes an interest in having the one thing she never allowed herself before.
If you like that sort of story, this might be one you want to pick up – and for anyone who likes western culture and the cowboys that inevitably follow that kind of hero, you’re sure to enjoy.
This new title in the If Only line is the perfect summer read and proves that love flourishes in the wildest places! - Goodreads
