Three years ago, artist Emily White’s grief and survivor’s guilt sent her to the small Wyoming town of Fly Creek. Since then, she’s kept her emotions safely tucked away—until she meets the new rancher at Sky Lake Dude Ranch. Stetson in hand, the gorgeous cowboy’s arrival in her store immediately shakes up her world.

Adam Conley is only in Fly Creek for as long as it takes to fulfill his promise to his late cousin. The small town brings up too many memories of the life he left behind years ago. He knows his task won’t be easy, but the last thing he expects is the instant attraction to the reason he’s in town. Emily is beautiful, vibrant, and completely off-limits. He’s there to keep his promise—not fall in love.

But Adam’s secret will crumble everything Emily’s life has revolved around.

     This was an interesting story of a woman who has been mourning the tragic death of her fiancĂ© Drew.  Emily White was an art teacher in Pennsylvania and Drew was the P.E. teacher.  They had gone out to the river on a boat to go fishing and it tipped over.  Drew was pulled under never to be found.
     Three years have passed, Emily has moved to Colorado and opened a gallery art studio.  Yet, she is not living.  She is afraid of her own shadow.  Forget her being around a body of water or even mentioning it.  Even if someone talks about she goes off because it has now become a trigger word, river or lake, each causing a breakdown.
     Then one day a cowboy with cotton candy blue eyes, dimples, and a voice that made her feel safe.  The cowboy was really new to town only six weeks.  Emily may not have interacted with the community, customers, or townsfolk as a whole but she belonged to them.  She did keep her ear out when they would talk about things in her shop though so she knew stuff that was happening around town.  Like who Adam Conley was. 
     His hands made her shiver.  The Friday after they met she had decided that Adam had awoken the sexy she devil inside her and she needed and wanted to feed her.  So, she set out to seduce him.  That night for the first time ever she showed up at the saloon.  When she sees him, she finishes her liquid courage and then buys them both another drink and takes it to him.
     They dance a song and his hands on her hips are the sexiest thing ever to her.  When it was over she asks if he wants to leave with her.  He says, “Yes!”  All she wanted was one night.  No more.  Adam had other plans.
     You see Adam had shown up in town in order to deliver a promise he made to Drew his cousin.  But what he has to tell Emily can either destroy her or make her stronger.  Especially, when he realizes her asking him out is a big thing.  See how this wicked web gets more cross webbed as it goes on.

     Can they remain, even friends, after he reveals the truth?  Only time will tell.  I give this: 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com.
