Cassidy was looking for a home and a place to belong . . . not for a cowboy to steal her heart.
Having lived through her parents’ endless string of “matrimonial bliss gone wrong,” Cassidy Starr knows when the odds are not in her favor. Divorced and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground, Cassidy is through with love. She’s been bucked off that horse far too many times. Instead, she returns to Wishing Springs, Texas, and the rundown farm she’s inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She’ll reopen the strawberry farm and a bed & breakfast and follow in her aunt’s footsteps, remaining forever-independent, happy . . . and single.
Rancher Jarrod Monahan’s hands are full running the ranch, looking after his ailing grandfather, and chasing down a group of rustlers on the loose. He’s pushed his longing for a family to the bottom of his list of priorities. Besides, he was in love once but ran scared and lost his shot at happiness. But suddenly, the biggest regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart, determined to become a spinster . . . and that’s a challenge that Jarrod can’t pass up.
Jarrod sets his mind to breaking down the walls around Cassidy’s stubborn heart. How can he show her that a cowboy’s kiss lasts forever? For the good folks of Wishing Springs, falling in love has never been so much fun to witness.

A hunky cowboy is hard to say no to, but this cowboy, even with his blue eyes and dark hair, is my least favorite of the Monahan clan. He was straight up stalker-ish in his pursuit of Cassidy Starr. No matter how many times she said, no, there he was. Don't get me wrong, I love a hero who goes for what he wants, but he tried a little too much in my opinion. Cassidy is a great heroine, scarred and reluctant, but resilient in her desire to start fresh in an old, familiar place. It's too bad that Jarrod didn't live up to what I expected from reading Betting on Hope and Counting on a Cowboy. That said, if you enjoy contemporary romance that is clean but not preachy, this series is one to look for. Read what others are saying about the book.
