My 4 Star Review

I received this book from the touring host for an honest review. 

As a teenager, Georgie was send away to boarding school after her father got remarried. The day her mother had left, changed their world instantly leaving a bitter taste in their mouths. This was detrimental to the father-daughter relationship and Georgie, now older and back had still issues with this. She hated her step-mom and the children born from this marriage. But perception is an ugly thing when you look at your world with judgmental glasses, not bothering to learn the truth.
I really liked the father and Carol, reasonable people that tried to do the right thing with her, but yet she missed it in her adolescent ignorance. 
Due to this, her decisions were flimsy, without thought and volatile to those surrounding her.

When she met Jake Harcourt, a very sexy bad boy, biker and horse lover, she met her match. Always going for the bad boy image, she soon found that this man was not to be messed with, played with or dictated, which of course leads to explosive encounters between them.
In the process the sexual tension erupted whenever these two comes together, not bothering to conceal it, and through it all a story unfolds that was filled with emotional outbursts throughout the story line. 
The land dispute playing a small role as these two were trying to find their feet, and the voice of reason, Rowena offered her help in both their futures. Subtly pushing them to commit one way or another.

Both had serious issues with commitment, but you soon learn that Jake's reasons are justified, knowing the ugly side of life and how hard life could be; he had to work through the fears that was building within. I really liked this bad boy in the book, at the end his steadfastness, persistence and willingness to face his fears won him over; giving him a greater appeal and one you can fall in love with.

I must admit there were times that I was lost in the story line, the flow hindered and some of the conversations didn't make sense so that I had to return to the previous paragraph and reread the scene to find out what was going on. At times that was annoying. Vague hints were given in the beginning, which was unclear and you were not sure where it would lead.

Yet the story developed at a fast pace, which I read quickly. A nice book to read with enough meat on the story, sexual tension combined with two very beautiful people working it out. Although the characters still have a long way to go by the end of the book; they were both willing to make it work making the story interesting and believable.
