Overview

Jordan Thompson was brought up to believe and trust what her parents taught her: their strong but conservative values. As the daughter of the President of the United States, she especially feels the burden of living up to her parents’ standards.

Drew Hamilton is putting her rodeo career on hold to purse a medical degree. One day she hopes to return to Wyoming to practice family medicine and ranch. She’s worked hard to pay for school and doesn’t have time for romance, especially with curious straight females. When Jordan hires her as a tutor, Drew finds she is learning more about life than she planned. Jordan is learning more than academics. She’s learning about love.

But with their very different backgrounds and families, they may not survive the stresses of a first love.

Meet the Author

C. J. Harte has lived in many places while growing up, mostly military towns. She was born in New York and still has family there. She completed her undergraduate and graduate degrees in Florida with her family cheering when she graduated with her doctoral degree. They suspected she was a perpetual student and were finally able to breathe a sigh of relief.

The college years were the years of civil rights and anti-war protests. She dipped a toe in activism and was soon immersed in women’s and human rights issues: organizing, campaigning, and marching. She developed a passion for equality that drives her today. She discovered there are many ways to be share that activisim. When she moved out to Wyoming she joined a GALA Chorus and let music speak for her. She is the co-lyricist for the musical “Am I Blue” written especially for The Rainbow Chorus, Ft. Collins, Co.

Words have always held a special magic for C.J. Her parents were great story tellers and she quickly learned the importance of a well-told tale. C.J. now lives and writes from her Wyoming home where she lives with her four-footed friends, looking out at the mountains and blue sky. Each day is an adventure and provides fodder for another story.

3.5 Stars Usually I don’t read F/F books because they aren’t my normal cup of tea. With this book though, I did enjoy reading it but also it felt very predictable. We have Drew, who is going to school to be a doctor and comes from a rodeo family. So you know automatically that she is going to find a rich girl who she falls in love with. And she did do that, with Jordan. And add to that that Jordan is the first daughter? Yeah that’s crazy town. While the story did seem to flow rather well, my chief complaint would be how predictable the story was overall. I do believe though, that if you enjoy F/F books you should check this one out. *Received an ARC for honest review*

I enjoyed reading this book. CJ Harte let the story develop between the characters and didn't rush them into a relationship to end the story like so many other authors. I look forward to reading future novels!

Drew is a rodeo country girl from Wyoming who went off to college to become a physician. Jordan is city girl who happens to be the President's daughter and is in college to become an engineer. Jordan hires Drew to be her tutor and over time they become best friends and eventually lovers.  Not really sure where to start. I really loved this sweet and beautiful story about love and self discovery. I really loved both of these characters. Drew is sassy, tough, sweet, focused, and loyal. Jordan has lived in a gilded cage all her life and has been told what to do, what to like and how to act. She is beautiful, naive, headstrong, lonely and confused about new feelings she has about her tutor Drew.  This is Drew and Jordan's story but my heart was mostly with Jordan. She has never really had a true friend and has lived a sheltered life. Jordan starts to have feelings for Drew but doesn't understand them and they go against everything she knows. Jordan deals with a lot of new emotions, friendship, love and loyalty to her family. She is constantly around close minded people who only see what they want to see and hate anything that is not "normal" to them. Overall, I really enjoyed this read. The sex and story are good and Im so happy that the sex goes behind the door and between the sheets. I am in love with Drew and Jordan... and don't forget Mark (he is simply fabulous). I'm also glad that I'm not surrounded by close minded people that use derogatory terms to describe something so beautiful.
