After being somewhat disappointed with 'The Cowboy Takes a Wife' and 'The Unforgiving Bride', Im glad to see this series grabbing my attention again with this book. And even though there was a very heart-wrenching moment near the end of the book, I thought it was the right HEA for Zach and Rebecca.

If theres one thing that bothered me, it was the way Zach keep calling Rebecca "kid" for so long, but I kinda understod his need to keep some "emotional distance" from her.
Zach Whitelaw wanted children but he'd have to find a woman to be their mother. He stated his needs clearly in his ad for a wife and mother, and Rebecca Littlewolf seemed to fit the bill with one exception. There was not a compliant bone in her body. Rebecca's loved Zach since she was sixteen, and he'd now given her the hope that maybe she could get him to love her back. Time and again, she realized that maybe her hopes would never be realized. Another must read from Ms. Johnston!
Not horrible, but not mind-blowingly good. I did like it. A bit more angsty than I was expecting, though it sort of evened out with their HEA. This is a good book to read if you're really into the drama and angst surrounded fertility and conception, as that's the main focus on the plot.

Some things to point out:
There's an age-gap. When she was 17, he was 30. So 13 years apart. The book takes place when she's 23, him 36.

Also, the one thing I didn't like was his use of "kid" for an endearment. H

After reading other Hawks Way books, this one was a disappointment. Putting aside the whole 'why would you marry a man who doesn't love you' question (there is an answer that, while not entirely satisfying, worked), the way the romance unfolded just felt contrived. The trip to the fertility specialist was poorly researched. The rationale why HE wanted a loveless marriage ... okay ... the dude got burned badly (I won't spoil it for you).

The 'tragedy' before the end just totally didn't work for me
tragic as to what happened to the h ;(
