Back Cover Blurb:
Cassidy Beckett has a secret she's kept for six years: the identity of her son's father. She can't hide the truth much longer. The Easy Money Arena's new bull manager, Shane Westcott, also happens to be the boy's handsome uncle. But Cassidy will do anything to protect her young son, even if it means steeling her heart against Shane's nearly irresistible charm.
It doesn't take Shane long to figure out two things—Cassidy's son is his nephew, and his feelings for the boy's beautiful mother go way beyond friendship. As a single dad, Shane knows how important a father is to a child. He also knows the men in Cassidy's life have let her down before. Can Shane convince Cassidy to face the truth without losing her trust…or his heart?
Cassidy was a bit over the top at times. She kept putting what she wants ahead of what’s right and what’s for the best in the long run. Her uber pessimism throughout the bulk of the novel made it hard for me to connect with her. That said, it was also very well explained and easy to understand. I couldn’t help but feel for her, especially when Hoyt was on the scene. It was all heightened by Shane’s very understanding nature. He was so strong and compassionate yet also fun and caring. These two combined with their adorable children were a fantastic cast to carry this story forward.
This novel was cute & sweet with a fantastic storybook ending. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
