Jack Valentini isn’t my type.
Sexy, brooding cowboys are fine in the movies, but in real life, I prefer a suit and tie. Proper manners. A close shave.
Jack might be gorgeous, but he’s also scruffy, rugged, and rude. He wants nothing to do with a “rich city girl” like me, and he isn’t afraid to say so.
But I’ve got a PR job to do for his family’s farm, so he’s stuck with me and I’m stuck with him. His glares. His moods. His tight jeans. His muscles.
His huge, hard muscles.
Pretty soon there’s a whole different kind of tension between us, the kind that has me misbehaving in barns, trees, and pickup trucks. I’ve never done anything so out of character—but it feels too good to stop.
And the more I learn about the grieving ex-Army sergeant, the better I understand him. Losing his wife left him broken and bitter and blaming himself. He doesn’t think he deserves a second chance at happiness.
But he’s wrong.
I don’t need to be his first love. If only he’d let me be his last.
I must confess this was my first Melanie Harlow book and I’m so happy that Jack Valentini popped my #HarlowCherry!!!
He was just the ideal man for the job. Jack is the perfect combination of hot and sexy mixed with rude and rugged. A broken man.
Margot and Jack’s love story is intense, steamy and emotional.
“If I can be friends with a cocky, know-it-all farmer like you, you can handle a sweet little city girl like me.”
Sassy, sweet and oh so proper city girl, Margot needs to get away from her surroundings, so a new account out of town seems to be a perfect solution to get a break while still working.
The Valentini brothers are in a dire need of someone to get their farm to the next step and on the map and hiring Margot’s PR company is just what they need, except Jack disagrees. He is not ready to have a stranger meddle into what is his dream. And he is ready to fight.
This story is the perfect case of opposites attract. Jack and Margot couldn’t be any more different. But their differences are no match to their undeniable chemistry. Kindles will be melting as these two embark on their journey.
But Jack is not ready to let go of the ghost he carries in his heart….
“The hope that all would be forgiven. The promise of a new life. A new beginning. A new love.”
This story will break your heart, steam up your kindle and make you laugh out loud many times.
Loved all the characters and I’m looking forward to read more of Melanie Harlow’s books in the future.
