What good is running AWAY when you only end up lost?
Cassandra Pierce had her whole “perfect” life planned out by her parents. One night of pure weakness and lust has her running away from it all and seeking refuge in Alamosa with her best friend. But it seems life has other plans for her when she finds herself lost in the small town of Keaton.
Jason Bradley is a charming country guy. He lives a simple life that’s nothing like what Cassandra is used to. A single moment in life changed everything he thought he once knew, leaving him with a broken heart and an unplanned future.
What happens in Keaton is nothing Cassandra or her heart could have ever prepared for. The instant connection she shares with Jason is no secret, but what they’re keeping hidden from one another is. Will these two be able to find a way to trust each other or will their secrets tear them apart?
About the Author
I’m a girl with a passion for reading and desire for writing. You’ll find me either reading or sitting by my laptop writing. I have too many favorite books to list but they would all most likely fall under the romance category. I’m a sucker for a good love story, shedding a few tears, and having my heart melted by an amazing book boyfriend! 🙂 If I get free time you might find me watching a movie, my second love!
First of all, I’d like to congratulate B.A. Wolfe on having a fantastic debut! While reading this book, I kept asking myself, “She didn’t write other books?” The writing of the story flows so well and is impeccable. Everything about this book is great. The story starts off with Cassandra, running away from her parents and sheltered life. She decides to visit her best friend, Melanie who lives a few hours away at another college. During her drive to Melanie’s, Cassandra is involved in a car accident located in a small rural town.
Then she meets Jason, a handsome and charming cowboy, come to rescue her from the accident. Unfortunately, with no car..she’s stuck there..indefinitely until car is fixed. The connection between Jason and Cassandra is so real but magical at the same time. Reading about them gave me butterflies..yes butterflies!!! I was so hooked to this book and read it in 2 sittings. If I didn’t have to work, I probably would have finished it in one day. I felt that I really connected with Cassandra. She is scared, hurt, feels alone, and is ashamed of her mistakes. She tries to keep her head high and not let the bad things get to her but deep down, she’s in pain. Just knowing what she went through brings me sadness. Shoot! I wanted to help her..and save her myself. I also loved Melanie. I think she is the perfect best friend a girl could ask for. She is loyal, smart, witty, sexy, and so “I don’t give a shit about what you think”…I loved it!! No matter what happened, she always had Cassandra’s back. I am hoping to read more about Melanie in the upcoming sequel.
Then there’s Jason…wheewwww! This man is hot!! I was not a fan of cowboys until now!! He just screams, “Do Me!!!” But I didn’t fall in love with him because of his sex appeal; yes..that helped. I fell in love with his demeanor, his humbleness, his ability to care for a complete stranger; just because it’s the right thing to do. Jason is the perfect gentleman. He is kind, generous, hilarious, a great dancer, has great taste in music, and loves scrabble!! How can you not love this character!!??? 🙂
There are so many good qualities about this book. It is a moving and overwhelming love story between two people who never expected to find love, and not only, overcome their inner demons, but also bring hope back into each other’s lives. You will laugh, smile, and cry *get the tissues ready*. I absolutely loved this book and cannot wait for the next one!
