Rockford James was raised as a tried and true cowboy in a town crazy about ice hockey. Rock is as hot on the ice as he is on a horse, and the NHL snapped him up. Now, injuries have permanently benched him. Body and pride wounded, he returns to his hometown ranch to find that a lot has changed. The one thing that hasn't? His feelings for high school sweetheart and girl-next-door Quinn Rivers.
Quinn had no choice but to get over Rock after he left. Teenaged and heartbroken, she had a rebound one-night stand that ended in single motherhood. Now that Rock's back--and clamoring for a second chance--Quinn will do anything to avoid getting caught up in this oh-so-tempting cowboy...
|Rockford James is a hockey player who is coming home because of an injury. On his way to his families’ ranch, he spots his high school sweetheart Quinn Rivers walking down the road with a bicycle dressed in a pirate outfit. Now all of the years that they spent together doing things flash in his mind and he still remembers leaving ten years ago for hockey and how he left her behind. Now she has a child by another guy who is not around and he wonders if and what he could do to make it different. It starts here giving her a ride to her families’ ranch which her father is not that happy in seeing him and then goes into dressing up as a pirate. Helping with her son’s birthday. After the party and beginning the next day he works on getting to know her again and her son. Except for a time when the father comes back into the picture again you are rooting for them. There are some twist and turns that I did not especially with the two parents, but that was nice. The characters were good and the story moved at a good paced, overall a very good book. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
