Publisher's Summary

Army veteran Catherine Daye long ago accepted her passable looks, mediocre talent, and average intelligence. In fact, she bought a rundown farm on 70 acres to retreat from the world and live out her simple, ordinary life. Atlanta marketing superstar Autumn Swan’s world is anything but simple. Constantly plugged in to what’s trending on social media, it’s her job to keep her clients ahead of the competition. When her favorite cousin dies suddenly, she finds herself the owner of a modest country home, guardian to a sullen, tomboyish 10-year-old, and neighbor to an intriguing woman who isn’t as ordinary as she appears.

Wow, I was pleasantly surprised.

I have thought long and hard about this review. There are so many aspects of the book to touch on that I hope to get them all on my first attempt at writing this review. If not expect to see this edited in the future. : D

I like the fact that it pairs up a military veteran with a millenial. This is a real potential relationship for this day and age. Both see life from different points of view and it is really hard to understand the other's and it is really important to give the other person a moment to play out their hand without jumping to a preconceived notion. I think this was an important topic to tackle, because it is so prevalent in our society.

Then there is the point of view from the veteran and some of the issues with dealing with PTSD. As a veteran who suffers from PTSD this was depicted better than I expected. I know the author spent some time around Fort Bragg, so I feel her exposure to the soldiers in theat community helped her paint the pictures of this issue rather well. So, Bravo, well done.

Now, the saucy parts ... HOLY WOW! I had to go take a cold shower. I am not sure how much more I can say. That pretty much describes it rather well.

I felt the story line was great. Awesome build up of the characters, the story, and then through the finish. I have never read a romance novel before, but I was impressed. The book was more than the sexy scenes. This has some depth and lessons that will leave you thinking about the book long after you put it down.

Good story.

I liked the setting and the way the characters seemed to be developing, but it jumped to a conclusion really fast. I would have liked to have a little more explanation. Overall, a great story. I would listen to it again.

Great Story

I really loved reading this story and when I found out it came out as an audio book I couldn't wait to hear it - and it was well worth the wait. The building of the characters and watching/listening to them grow and change with everything that was going on made it a great story to listen to, grab a copy and prepare yourself to be entertained. You will be glad you did.
