“Sometimes we have to risk everything before we can find true happiness.”
The prologue pulled me in and the first me kept meet there!
Jackson and Alyssa had chemistry from the beginning. I really thought I knew how their story would go, but boy was I wrong! These two had way more surprises and turbulence than I expected. The character development itself was fantastic. We get Jackson’s background first and it is a bad situation turned feel-good story. He and his brothers show their true colors at a young age and you just know that they will grow to be the kind of men you want to know. Jackson and Alyssa both have heartache to overcome and they do not want to expose themselves to that kind of pain again. But like most great love stories, everyone around them already knows than they belong together.
One of my favorite aspects of this book was the support characters and there were a lot! Not overwhelmingly so, but they were a big family and a small town. You do the math. 😉 Alyssa’s parents were warm and compassionate. And remarkably patient! I mean WOW! They really knew their girl and what she needed. Jackson’s brothers and dad were the best! So great that I cannot wait for their books to come out. If they are growing men like that in Montana, book me a one-way ticket! But seriously, there were a great family. It felt good to read about such closeness. I wanted to be on that ranch with them.
The story itself was fun and exciting. I loved the back and forth between Jackson and Alyssa. I will say that I wanted to band their heads together a few times! And I definitely was not cool with how long Alyssa let things go, but then again, I am not her. She was scared and hurt and did what she had to do to protect herself. There were moments where she could have faced her fears and communicated with Jackson that they would have both been saved a lot of heartache. It was a little much at times, but it did not overshadow the story or the wonderfulness that was Jackson. He was just plain great.
“Baby, when you’re good, you know it.”
I give this 3.5 fate-never-looked-so-good stars and pair it with a bunch of little airplane liquor bottles!
