Blue Baldwin takes no horse crap from anybody. Well, actually, that’s not entirely true. She does take horse crap. Piles of it. The real kind that is––not the metaphorical one. It kind of goes with the job description when you run a large animal rescue. What she does not take, however, is crap from an entitled movie star who needs to reform his rotten image.
Unfortunately, the farm she manages is in trouble and if she doesn’t raise the cash to save it she’ll be homeless along with the precious animals who depend on her. So she’ll grin and bear the King of Hollywood Screw Ups, and the assistant, and the overprotective brother he brings along. I mean, she takes care of large animals for a living. Isn’t that basically the same thing?

Older than his brother — maybe thirty-six or seven — and pushy, with a touch of serial killer sprinkled in for funsies.”– Convo between Jess & Blue
“You had me at serial killer.”
The door to the Mustang Cobra swings open and Shane Hughes slides out of the driver’s seat like he’s selling men’s deodorant to testosterone-deficient teenage boys, in slow motion and exuding more confidence than any one man should ever possess.– Blue
I declare that I’m on a man-fast and almost immediately, the universe, in it’s infinite wisdom, delivers this temptation to my doorstep.
Not my first read by the author and I do love her writing style. This was a bittersweet review for me because she wrote one of THE BEST HEROINES I have read in a very long time! My issue was with the hero, he had and was all of the grumpy, alpha, broody type but the end of actions were just to me not excusable, too many open variables for me to forgive the way the heroine did and it made me hate him because it was a repeated offend. That said, he is why the rating is at where it is. Very bittersweet because I love this author and I was so excited *sigh* but again this is all person preferences of course.
Heroine is EVERYTHING, I want to be her when I grow up because not only was she beautiful, smart, witty, sarcastic and brave…she had the biggest and most honest heart. Wore her heart on the sleeve even after what she went through. She run and works at a pet sanctuary for injured animals, wild animals that is. Takes care of them with the funniest little old lady. Oh, and let me mention she has a best friend that is the bomb! The hero comes from the left, because really I thought the hero was going to be the movie star but ended up being that’s the brother. When said movie star ends up at her farm due to her bff’s suggestion for doing community work, it’s a long but fun road. The hero is moody, grumpy, doesn’t say a lot but his actions may also be not often but true to his feelings I can’t deny these two’s chemistry. His past is a little twisted but in all the heroine truly falls for him without even being touched yet. Oh did I mention that this is a SUPER SLOW BURN? Yeah, prepare, I mean after 80% type of burn, the anticipation is killer too.
After reading to the end, I honestly wanted to love the hero more and more but just was not a fit for me for a couple of reasons and if you’re a mood reader like me you’ll understand that it just…WAS NOT EXCUSABLE (I think to me I just needed little more explanation from the hero is all) it was also maybe a little of the story, there was a MYSTERY and ACTION factor to it but it did not go anywhere if you know what I mean. But over all I would still highly recommend this book and author because my rating is based on personal preferences not a over-all…this could be a gold for you! SINGLE POV!
