This is quite a quick read about Lauren making a road trip to meet up with her future in-laws but she ends up stuck in the middle of nowhere (Texas) and really needs a ride. Step forward Steve, a widower and according to local opinion a gentleman, but the chemistry between them is off the charts from the first moment they meet. Unfortunately Lauren does have a certain Frederick in the background also known as her fiance! What is she meant to do? Hold onto a life that doesn't really satisfy her soul or grab hold of this hot cowboy? Lauren might be conflicted but Steve sees what he wants and is determined to keep it.
Yes, it's a shorter book than I wanted which meant a lot happens very quickly but that didn't stop it from being entertaining. Lots of humour and very sexy. If you don't enjoy games with food than maybe not for you, but this couple made it work! I'm not usually a fan of stories that reward unfaithful behaviour but Lauren and Frederick are clearly poles apart. Suspend all belief and just enjoy the ride. Well written, could have had more character development if honest but the right man gets the girl so as a traditional western romance it certainly delivers!
