HUBBY'S REVIEW:
Cherry Hill has had a rough life but she is not complaining to anyone. So as she is dealing with a fire at her restaurant that she took over after her grandparents passed away. She gets a phone call saying that her cousin was in a car accident with her husband and child and she needed to rush to the hospital. On the way her car breaks down and the one person she really did not want to see shows up is Sheriff Taylor Johnson. The same man who broke her heart nine years ago when he left town and joined the service. He takes her to the hospital, but he still can’t believe she is driving the same VW bug that she had when they were in school. When they arrive at the hospital she is attacked by her so called family. They are still upset that the grandparents left the dinner to her, but now she finds out that her cousin has passed away and she has been made guardian over Sam, her nephew. Her Aunt, and cousin talk down to her and belittle her to the point that Taylor jumps in and says to them that they are engaged. This for the time being puts a stop to all of the talk for that day, and she goes to Sam. She then tells Taylor thanks and he also tells her to come out to his dad’s place since her apartment was burnt in the fire as well. Sam and her move in and there are some problems at first but it goes along okay and everyone for the most part is good with them being together except for her side of the family. She also has a secret that she needs to tell Taylor, but she does not know if it will help or hurt, but she does know that feelings are going to go back to when they were in school and back to that last night together before he left. When he finds out he responds like she thought he would telling him that she had to make decisions because he was gone and she did leave him a message on his phone but he never called her and she knew he did not want to be in the town any more. She had to do what she thought was best. This was a very strong book and the characters were all good in the story even the family ones that I did like. A good book, five stars. I got this book from netgalley.  I give this 5 stars.

This book hooked me from the very beginning. The events unfolded at such a rate and with such emotion that it grabs hold of your emotions.
Cherry Hill comes from a well to do family that thinks they’re the end all be all. Thank goodness she always thought because her grandparents were loving and caring she was just like everyone else kind. The head of the family now that her grandmother passed is her Aunt Bea. She looks like someone who sucked a lemon, has no personality, and sits as if she has a rod in her back.
Cherry’s father married her mother and had her and her mom left them both but everyone blames her for their break up. Or at least for them being together. Then her father left her with her grandparents who took care of her as he fell into the bottle. They took great care of the same way she took care of them all the way until the end of their lives. They willed her their restaurant that had been in the family which angered Aunt Bea and her family. All except Stacy, Reed’s sister who was not only Cherry’s cousin but her best friend. No one knew of this there was a secret that Stacy, her grandmother and Cherry shared and no one knew.
Someone she had gone to school with and had been love with since she was young had moved back to town. She had been trying to avoid him since he moved back which was really hard. You see Taylor Johnson is the new Sheriff in town. Being she owned the local diner it would be crazy to think that she wouldn’t run into him or that he wouldn’t stop in to eat. But the seriously didn’t start dating until before their senior year in high school. But the night of their senior prom they had an after party just the two of them where they took each other virginity. 
At around that same time Taylor’s mom had been ill with a disease that was taking her life and when she passed he found it hard to adjust. So, after graduation they had been fighting a lot due to his tension and grief. Without saying anything to her he up and signed papers to join the service he told her goodbye and that he needed time away from the small town and he needed this.
When she finds herself in a bad situation she texts him twice and then its crunch time. Time to make big girl decisions…
Eight years later…on the day there is a fire that causes major damage at her restaurant she runs into Taylor as what? Volunteer firefighter. Wasn’t it bad enough he came back into town as the new Sheriff? Guess not. As she was trying to put out the fire she burnt her arm so after the fire he sees her with the EMT working on her and he ask about her. Before she can really say anything she gets a call then jumps in her old beat up VW and hauls ass out of the parking lot.
Taylor gets worried and drives out after her good thing because she has broken down and is sobbing on the side of the rode. He ask and she says Stacy, Greg and their little boy were in a car accident. The boy was the only one who made it out. He says okay come let me take you home she starts fighting him. She says no that Stacy left her as his guardian and he could be scared looking for them or her. So he said he would take her to the hospital. When they get there, the other side of the Hill family the rich side, boy do they rake her over the coals calling her not fit. Not good enough, a tramp, and low life.
Taylor gets so mad he said she is none of those things, plus she’s not alone, she has him and that they are getting married. Oh Boy!
This book was so good there is so much love in this couple not only for each other but for this little boy. Reed the villain is perfect and Aunt Bea is too. I give this book 5 stars. Provided by Netgalley.com. 
Book #1
Sometimes you find what you need in the most unlikely places...

Charlie Ryan's cheating fiancé left her with a broken heart and even broker bank account. She's hit rock bottom, but everything is about to change. Suddenly, she's inherited a Montana farm named Tucked Away from a grandmother she never knew existed. A fresh start is just what she needs - and no men in her future this time, even if the local vet is as hot as a Montana summer.

Zack Cooper is content with his simple life. Running his veterinary practice and raising his daughter are enough to keep him busy, and he doesn't need a high-maintenance city girl like his ex who plans to sell her grandma's ranch and split faster than a setting sun. So why can't he stop thinking about Charlie and her hot-pink cowboy boots...and the way her eyes say she wants to stay while her lips tease him with plans of leaving?

Just when both start to believe love might be worth the risk...one night will change everything.
