TBR reviewer: Luta Wolf
tirelessly on a cattle ranch in southern Colorado to support his parents back
home. While his days are spent attending to his duties, his nights are devoted
to fantasizing and dreaming of the delicious ways he could lose himself inside
the gorgeous and forbidden mocha beauty, Noelle Williams.
Noelle, the black sheep of her wealthy family, is fascinated and drawn to the rugged, yet silent cowboy who works next door. Torn between keeping her distance and laying bare her heart and body for his exquisite and passionate undertaking,
Noelle must decide if she is willing to risk it all for the love of a man deemed
unworthy by her father and society.
What intrigued me about this story is that it’s not your normal western romance. It had too many different twists from Noelle’s broken past and Cole’s deafness to be considered anything but unique. The plot is steady and passion filled. I really enjoyed that while the characters immediately noticed each other, it wasn’t immediate love. There was a constant build-up to the relationship. Noelle is a Pandora box character with so many dimensions. She is strong, independent, full of spitfire, and yet she is vulnerable. Cole comes off as easy going but as the story unfolds you find a prideful man who's a bit self conscious. I think the book would have benefited had it been longer. There were so many dynamics to the book that 137 pages just wasn’t enough. It ended a bit too easily considering all the
angst. It’s defiantly worth the read.
