Not my first read with this amazing author, I have read and re-read all of her books many times! I absolutely love her writing style and books! That said this one threw me for a little hoop. It was different but same in the ‘like the series’ same but just something was different in this one. The characters is what I am mostly referring to, and not in a bad way just in a not used to it way. I’m not sure if that makes sense but it makes sense to me.
I think it had a lot to do with Maggie, she was very very VERY stubborn and hardheaded. Yes her circumstances but I think this one actually pushed me to a orange frustrating level. We have two people who are opposite as much as their lives are. When Dallas moves in next door to the quiet and mysterious and so beautiful woman, he is not sure what to think of her. She is very closed off and guarded. Maggie is hiding but also trying to live, she is used to one way of living and she doesn’t need anything more than her home, garden nd chickens. Dallas throws a wrench into that and she starts to let her guard down a smudge only t me reminded why she can’t.
This book had it all, the sexy hero, the mysterious but sweet heroine, action and romance. I really think that it all came together so very well and I was happy to see their HEA because Dallas really deserved it but mostly because of the heroine!
