4 out of 5 stars

Nate and Jay are quite the pair. A cowboy and a city guy. What could they possible have in common? How would they ever find any kind of relationship doable? For a good portion of the book, I didn’t see it happening either!

I felt an almost instant connect with Jay. He was living with his sister helping her raise her two kids and I just really connected with his struggles and family values. I struggled a little more at first to connect with Nate, but once I did, I really fell for him, too. He is also dedicated to his family and trying to make sure that everyone has the best of everything. I felt like their first encounter was perfectly written, too. They might have a lot in common, but they definitely come from two very different worlds!

One of the best descriptions of characters came from inside Jay’s head as he was describing the Todd brothers:

The Todd brothers were different. Gabe was pretty--really pretty; there was a softness about him that spoke of romance. Luke was young and relaxed and gave the impression he was easy in his own skin. Nate, on the other hand, was hardness personified: in the way he held himself, the way  he sat silent, the fact that his flinty eyes were cold.

Once they both become more easy going with each other and start teasing and flirting, the story really picks up quickly. I enjoyed the humor and the seriousness of this book. One of the most poignant quotes from the story comes the first time they admit their real feelings. After Jay admits to falling too far and too fast, Nate has to answer:

The honesty cut through Nate like a knife, and he knew he had to be truthful in return. “I know I’m falling for you,” he admitted. He added brokenly, “We can be scared together.”

I would totally recommend this book to others! It was heartwarming and sweet and all around a fun read.
