This was a great THREE AND A HALF STARS for me.
Ahh…the story of Rowen and Jesse…and a location I didn’t like when I lived there, though now I miss so much about it (seasons, mountains, etc.), Montana.
A troubled girl is shipped off to a Montana ranch to learn about responsibility and how to not sleep around. It sounds very typical for an angsty new adult sort of tale. And maybe it is, but you know what? I love that sort of stuff. The characters are what hooked you into the story right from the moment a goth girl boot hit Montana soil from the step of a bus.
So Rowen was sent off by her mother to this ranch. Where in which she encounters Jesse Walker. And so begins a tale of romance and cheating and so many twists… Things that made my stomach drop. Things that…hit too close to home, so to speak. I kind of want to spill all this tea, but for some reason, I’m adamant about keeping the spoilers away.
So what can I say?
Rowen meets Jesse and his family. She meets a bad-boy-cowboy… Lots of drama. Angst for sure, and not the typical teen kind. And a yearning to read the other books in this series. (Yes, I know these stories are older by now, but that’s how I tend to read a tale–way later than everyone else.)
The only thing I didn’t like was what I call the “repetitive idea” of how the character thinks. But then, I’m just stupid picky like that. And don’t let that keep you from reading this tale. Especially if you’re looking for a great dramatic romance with the perfect-ish ending…Ish because it had to end…which NO!!!!! DON’T END!!!!
Yes, Read this one! Just do it and thank me later. If you like romance, that is.
FOUR STARS EARNED!!!
