TBR Reviewer: Amanda
Rating: 4 Stars - Recommended Read.
Heat: 4 - An Erotic Ride.
After Cade Lawson's fiancée leaves him at the altar, he makes the decision to change everything about his life. He leaves Chicago, his accounting job, the memories, and the snow behind and heads to Texas, where he has the opportunity to invest in a ranch. Jed McMasters knows all about dropping everything in life and starting over, but when he meets Cade, he realizes that he is looking for much more than an infusion of cash and another hard worker.
Both Cade and Jed are attracted to each other quickly, but they suffer the inevitable ups and
downs of the emotional upheaval left by Cade's former life. Cade soon realizes that he has spent his entire life trying to live up to other people's expectations and hiding from himself, but fear drives him away.
I liked the reunion of these two at Christmas and the lengths to which they both were willing to prove their commitment. The sexual scenes were hot, but I also enjoyed the descriptions of both working the ranch in Texas and the Chicago snowstorm. This was an enjoyable read that could have used another editing to clean it up a little more, but that wasn't enough to keep me from liking both the story and these two characters. I would like to read more of Hennessee Andrew's work.
