Yancy Grey is slowly putting his life back together after serving time for petty theft. As he rebuilds an old house, he finally has a sense of stability, but he can't stop thinking of himself as just an ex-con. Until one night, he finds a mysterious dark-haired beauty hiding in his loft. But who is she, and what secret is she protecting?
The art gallery Parker Lacey manages is her life—she has no time for friends, and certainly not lovers. But when her star artist begs Parker for help, she finds herself in a pickup truck, headed for the sleepy town of Crossroads. A truck driven by a strong, silent cowboy…
Gabe Snow has been a drifter since he left Crossroads at seventeen after a violent incident. When he accepts a job in his hometown, he'll have to decide whether he can put the worst night of his life behind him and build a future in the community that raised him.
I always enjoy reading novels by Jodi Thomas, I love her writing style, and the way she handles a story. She is a real storyteller, from page one through to the end of the book she kept my attention. She writes stories that when you reach the end, you don't want the book to end...
I loved this story. I liked the way the characters had a bit of mystery about them, how the light romance intermingled with each character connecting the storyline right up until the end. Each time I read one of Jodi's books, I say, "She hit another one out of the ballpark." Each one seems to be better then the one before it. That was the case with this book. Jodi Thomas just keeps getting better and better with each book I read. Needless to say, she is one of my favorite authors, I can't wait for her next book to be published.
I would like to thank the publishers of this book for providing it for me to read and review. Also, I did not receive any type of compensation for reading and reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers and authors I am under no obligation to write a positive review.
JODI THOMAS has published over 30 books in both the historical romance and contemporary genres, the majority of which are set in her home state of Texas. Publishers Weekly calls her novels "Distinctive...Memorable," and that in her stories "[tension] rides high, mixed with humor and kisses more passionate than most full-on love scenes." In 2006, Romance Writers of America (RITA) inducted Thomas into the RWA Hall of Fame for winning her third RITA for THE TEXAN'S REWARD. She also received the National Readers' Choice Award in 2009 for TWISTED CREEK (2008) and TALL, DARK, AND TEXAN (2008). While continuing to work as a novelist, Thomas also functions as Writer in Residence at the West Texas A&M University campus, where she inspires students and alumni in their own writing pursuits.
