Can this cowboy rope the woman who makes him realize there is more to life than just work?
The morning Laciee Dupree wakes up in a stranger’s bed, she vows to never drink again. The cowboy who gave her such an amazing night turns out to be the perfect man with his impeccable manners, his amazing looks, and, let's not forget, his skills in the bedroom. If only he didn't live in Branchwater, Texas. The attraction between them is hard to ignore, but she grew up in Branchwater and had already left that hick town once—and has zero plans of moving back.
Judd Travers is a dying breed of man, a true cowboy. A loner. He works his large ranch, never giving any thought to getting a wife and kids. At least not until he tangles with Miss Laciee Dupree. She's everything a man like him could want. Or need.
Problem is, Laciee is trying to leave town faster than she blew in, so he's got his work cut out if he's going to convince her to allow him to become more than just her dream lover. During this time there are troubles on his ranch that also require his attention.
Good thing cowboys are used to hard work…

I have enjoyed most of the books by Ms Burke, but this has been my favorite so far. The characters were well developed and real. I empathize with Laicee who could not move on from her childhood issues. How the people who knew her when would not let her forget. Or how the actions of adults effect a child. But then came Judd, the strong silent type, who saw her differently and didn't care about her past. Who knew her past made her the beautiful, srong, and courageous person she is today. But, as most men do, he put his foot in his mouth and lost her. Thank goodness for friends and family who can tell you the truth. He listened and went after his woman making himself and Laicee better together. Again, great read and I look forward to more books by Ms Burke in this same style.
The end. Laicee was annoying and her group of friends were annoying. I did not like how she treated her love. He spends the entire book trying to get her to open up and trust him. He walks in a room and a man is all over her and she gets mad at him. I think he had every right to get upset. Laicee had ample time to introduce her friends to the man she loves. I think she was looking for an excuse to dump him. TT
