Reviewed by Marissa Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book Kali was a little too perfect and perky for my taste. Yes, she was down to earth and a good mother, but for the most part she was just “too” perfect. Her saving grace is that she strives to do the right thing, be it for her family, her friends, or for her own moral integrity. She stands up to those who think they defy the law and pushes when right is on her side. On the villainous side, Jeremy was perfectly perfect. I am all too familiar with his type – smooth and the life of the party on the outside, evil and sadistic on the inside. Jeremy is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be. He’s a famous athlete, rich, charming, and says all the right things. But there’s the other side of him that is sociopathic, thinking he is always innocent and has never done anything wrong. The other characters – Sam, the three daughters, the extended family – are all likable characters. Even the lawyers and posse members, despite some idiosyncrasies, have their contributions to the story. And that’s the point. Whether likable or not, each character stands on it’s own – as does the story. I found the book engaging and plausible considering today’s society. The ending was enjoyable without being overly sappy and I look forward to more from Allred.

In this novel, character Kali Jorgensen is definitely a force to be reckoned with. She is a hard-working woman who cracks the whip. So when a bunch of lawyers from the city decide to bring their client to a cattle-driving ranch for a little down time while things settle down regarding their current big case, they have no idea what they are in for. And neither does their client. I still have chills from reading this book. *insert nervous chuckle here* I mean, the hairs on the back of my neck rose and my body stiffened every time the antagonist, Jeremy Connors, came into the picture. From the very beginning I just wanted to go through the book and punch him in the face, that is how bad my feelings toward him are. So I definitely commend the author on that. And Kali...whew...she is definitely a firecracker. I mean, who blasts Michael Jackson at 5 in the morning? She does! She probably was one of my favourite characters in this book, mainly because she is so tough. This woman lost her husband and is still going strong...or at least that is what she portrays to the rest of the world. Behind all her toughness, though, occasionally you see this vulnerability that she saves for when she is alone. That makes her so amazingly likeable to me, because she doesn't play the victim. She just takes things day by day. And even though she does not know it, she truly just wants to be loved again. You see a loneliness about her. So I was glad to see her on the receiving end of the romance aspect of this story. I really do love that this story hosts the topics that it does. Rape, misconduct, abusive actions...It also touches the topic of how someone's status in life can allow them to get away with things like this. And the people who defend them even when they know there is a semblance of truth to the charges against their clients. There is a morality to this story. You see it in the lead attorney of the Jeremy Connors case. He begins to question why he is even involved, and he also begins to question his morals. He truly is sickened by his client, but the promise of a promotion is kind of hard to turn down. However, he will find that there is a line he will not cross regarding how far he will go to keep his client out of trouble. There is humor, there is pain, there is romance and horses, what more could a girl ask for? I loved this story. It was a great read and definitely showed that not everyone should be afraid to tell the truth. It also showed that even after tragedy, things can turn out okay. Life can change at a dime, and love can come when you least expect it. Definitely an author to read in future.
