My Review:

This is an awesome, contemporary romance
In which both the couple deserve a second chance.
It is a story which I hated putting down at all
Hoping all for them both that into place would fall.

Kaitlyn Miller has had so many upsets in her life
From losing her Dad to her Mum giving her strife.
She's a photographer, visiting Last Stand for a while
Hoping to help get a celebrity to actually smile.

Rylan Rafferty is a cowboy and leatherwork artist
Whose fame is spreading, his work can't be missed.
However, he likes his privacy and doesn't seek fame
Burying himself in his work is always his aim.

When these two meet, the sparks start to fly
But both have been hurt in the past, should they give love a try?
As their backgrounds and history are gradually shared
They become a couple about whom you really cared.

With families, friendships and romance, too
This is a book I highly recommend to you.
Set in Texas, mostly out on a ranch
It's a brilliant read, I hope you give it a chance!

For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.


He’s a cowboy through and through…

Rylan Rafferty was a cowboy long before interest in his leatherworking artistry and saddle making for the rich and famous catapulted him to national fame. He values his privacy, so when a popular Texas magazine wants to feature him, his first inclination is to run. His military father who died in combat when Rylan was a teen was the artist, not him. But then he meets the photographer, and Rylan suddenly no longer wants to bury himself in his work.

Kaitlyn Miller values three things above all else—the memory of her father, her photography, and the mentor who first handed her a camera. Her beautiful but flawed mother may have chipped away at her self-esteem as a child, but Kaitlyn has confidence in her work. So she’s thrilled to be back home in Texas for her first big break—a photo shoot of a local Last Stand artist.

When plain Kaitlyn collides with gorgeous Rylan, unexpected sparks fly. But can he convince her that her generous heart and artist’s eye make her more than beautiful to him?
