    Talk about unexpected. This book was definitely that! This is

    Talk about unexpected. This book was definitely that! This is the first book I’ve read by Molly O’Keefe, so I didn’t know what to expect.

    Lucy Alatore is a down and out jewelry designer, who’s lost her Los Angeles business because she wanted to make fast money. Previously, she made a name for herself by making beautiful individually handmade jewelry. Down on her lucky with no place to go and in need of a much needed break, her and her mother return to their hometown of Wassau, CA.

    Jeremiah Stone is a former rodeo star. Not only has this ladies man lost her beloved bull riding career due to a near death experience, he has to take care of his family ranch. Add to the equation, this confirmed bachelor is now a mother and a father to his deceased sister’s three young boys.

    This story is of love, second chances, and truths that you never knew existed.

    Part of me wants to say that the story is slow. But that’s not the case. This isn’t your guy meets girl and they fall madly in love and spend the rest of the book doing the dirty deed. The story builds and pulls at your heartstrings. Making you wish that you could force the characters to get out of their heads and shake them into saying or doing what you know they should do.

    While the story is manly about Lucy and Jeremiah’s journey together, you also get another mini love story. The story of Lucy’s mom, Sandra, and Walter, Lucy’s father’s best friend.

    Lucy’s sister, Mia, is married to Walter’s son, Jack. Lucy and Mia never really cared for Walter, who was also their father’s best friend. Walter is a drunk and let his wife beat Jack as a child and then when Lucy’s father and his best friend, A.J., died, allow his wife to kick A.J.’s family out of the house they lived in on his farm.

    Lucy, Jeremiah, Walter, and the three boys are all lost souls who never realized that they needed each other. Each help the others find their way from the darkness into the light of which is a family they all long for.
