Back Cover Blurb:
All of Logan McCord's carefully laid plans erupt the day he walks in on his would-be fiancée getting…well, not so carefully laid. Tonight, just once, Logan is acting on instinct. And that instinct is telling him to say "Happy to oblige" to the cute stranger looking for a no-strings fling with a Texas cowboy.
When chef Reese Stephens made her bucket list, she mistakenly thought she had weeks to live. Not that she regrets her one-night-stand with the gorgeous rancher. But she does regret leaving an heirloom watch as a parting gift. Tracking Logan down is easy. Walking away again is another matter. Because Reese's crazy past and Logan's battered heart are no match for the kind of chemistry that could turn one night into the start of a passionate lifetime.
I love this author and how she makes me react, be it laughing, crying cursing the characters or swooning at the romantic gestures, she always pulls a strong reaction from me. The plot of this novel was original, while still maintaining the essence of a small town romance. I love how vivid everything was. Fossen's beautiful descriptions combine with her intensely fulfilling storytelling for an unforgettable tale that you can't miss out on.
And the characters that step forward to take center stage here were unforgettable as well. The inner turmoil and self doubt that they both feel is so hidden by their public persona that the mix was definitely intriguing. And the chemistry between them? It was off the charts and had me drooling. These were fantastic characters that I didn't just enjoy reading about, but also loved getting to know.
I really enjoyed this entire series but this novel was above and beyond my favorite. It can easily be read on its own or as part of this fantastic series.
