Ann Hackstetter first met Jackson Martinez while vacationing at Lazy M Dude Ranch with her husband and teenage son. Part of the "dude" package was a night of fun at Boot Bustin' Barn. At the time, Ann suspected that Sage Tanner, owner of Lazy M, bribed Jackson to ask her to dance as a way of making her inattentive husband jealous. On a whim, she danced with him. Little did she realize he would awaken emotions long suppressed. Of course, she ignored those emotions. Now, five years later, she's a widow--a destitute widow. Over the years, her son's friendship with Sage's daughter, Julie, has blossomed, and now they're getting married. Wedding responsibilities have temporarily taken Ann's mind off her desperate situation. At the reception, Jackson asks her to dance again--reawakening those emotions. He makes her feel twenty-one, instead of forty-one.

This story is about Sarah and Sage. Sarah is writing Dream Kisses. She meets Sage on a photo shoot for the cover of her book. They didn't hit it off but she meets Sage again at Sage's ranch. I loved the writing of the story by Verna Clay. Narrator was so good. Made the words jump off the page. I'm going to get the rest of the series at some point. 5 out of 5. Loved it.

It was a story about hate, love and forgiveness. I loved the story so much. It will make you cry, hate and laugh. I'm not going to give any thing away because it a great book. I gave it 4 out if 5 stars because it drag a little in the middle. But I still loved it. I had the audio book and the narrator was great. Gave the story life. It is a modern tail of Beauty and the Beast. Can not wait for the other 2 books to come out in audio book form. Thank you Emily Sharp for a great story that I love

I'm a lot of things - a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I'll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss. I don't want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won't get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him.

Reckless by Lex Martin. A country and family romace all in one. It's about a girl call Tori that goes and becomes a nanny for this guy called Ethan that works on a ranch. Her past boyfriends were not that good to her and the last one was cheating with her behind his wife's back. When she becomes a nanny to Ethans kids they start falling for each other. There is a lot of up and down. Lot of laugh out loud moments in the book. Ethan is a kind guy and his kids are just so cute. The kids loved Tori and took to Tori easily. The narrators were great and did the parts well. 5 out of 5 from me.
