I loved this book and I have to say, I thought Gabe was breathtaking. He is a tough cowboy with a soft underbelly, who has a way with kids. Of course, as a mom, Melanie is drawn to such a handsome, caring guy who takes her son under his wing, spending precious time with him and becoming a hero in his eyes. Or should I say, a hero in her eyes too! There were some great romantic scenes, including one at the kitchen sink, involving a knife and a fish. Very unique and oh-so-sigh-worthy! There is gre...more
I fell so in love with the hero, Gabe, that I'm still sighing. A great strong on the outside, soft on the inside cowboy. I just adored him. And the heroine beautiful and wounded and putting her child first in every decision no matter the cost to herself. I read a lot and it's pretty common for me to finish a book and remember the story but not names...but Melanie and Gabe, and the bundle of action and fun, Melanie's son Jason will stay with me for a long time. And Gabe's got two brothers who've...more
Heroes come in many forms in romance novels. They can be bad boys in need of redemption or men who have simply lost their way.

In this engaging story, it is easy for the reader to fall in love with G...more
(sigh) Such an awesome book. Gabe, the hunky cowboy hero, is adorable. The heroine, Mealine, is equally adorable. Add her eight year old son to the mix and you get a great book. Low conflict - very much appreciated - and an epilogue. My kind of book! Moving on to book two in the series.
