On the night Caytie Holbrook intends to break up with her cheating boyfriend, he blindsides her by announcing their engagement at a dinner party. When Caytie discovers her father is in on the scheme, she runs away from her home in Beverly Hills to hide out at her uncle’s ranch in Snow Valley, Montana. While Snow Valley is a beautiful place, Caytie only plans to stay until her twenty-fifth birthday when she’ll inherit a trust fund her grandmother left her, allowing her to pursue her dream to move to Italy. That is until she meets Jace McAllister, an incredibly sexy—although somewhat grumpy—cowboy who threatens to disrupt her plans.
I really enjoyed this story. Caytie is a spoiled rich girl but hasn't ever known what it feels like to be loved. Money really can't buy everything and things don't always make a person happy.
Her uncle provides a home, complete with love, for her and I enjoyed watching her discover feelings of contentment. Her first meeting with Jace had me laughing and I found myself laughing in a few other parts. Clean romance and humor is a big bonus for me and this one is like a romantic comedy, but in a bookish way, not on the screen.
Jace is a grumpy cowboy, but soooo sweet and endearing. I really enjoyed Kellan, too, and the way Caytie is able to reach out to him. I love how the story is so complete, even though it's so short. This author is one of my favorites and I can always count on a sweet, clean romance with a lot of fun woven throughout.
Content: mild kissing; nothing else of note. Clean!
