Parce qu'on pourrait croire qu'avec une description pareille j'aurais évité le bouquin.
Déjà, il aurait fallu que je lise la description.

Donc, au taf, j'm'emmerde et ça finit par me jouer des tours. Après la daube de l'autre jour, j'ai enchaîné là dessus. Avantage, c'est rapide. Désavantage ... TOUS LES CLICHES ROLLED INTO ONE BOOK.

Non mais sérieusement.

Donc je commence et puis Jed se retrouve dans sa ville de jeunesse, qu'il a quitté parce qu'il préfère la grande ville, et puis il est
The Untameable Texan by Joyce Maynard is a 2014 Harlequin Desire publication.

This short story is centered around Jed and his high school sweetheart, Kimberly. After high school, Kimberly breaks things off with Jed without really explaining why. Jed was angry and hurt for a very long time, but now with their high school reunion on tap, he plans to corner Kimberly and find out once and for why she broke his heart.

If you enjoy second chance love stories like I do then you know how hard it is to r

I enjoyed this book. It is a cliffhanger left in a way that you want to buy the next book to find out what happens. I normally don't like cliffhangers, however the plot and character peaked my interest, and kept me intrigued. I will go on to buy the next book.

Jed and Kimberly were high school sweethearts. The two were crowned homecoming King, and Queen. When Jed left for college, it was Kimberly that wrote the dear John letter breaking things off. Jed has always loved her. At the high school reu

This was a nice quick read. I do wish that it ended with an actual ending and not a cliff hanger. That always frustrates me.

So Jed was clearly still in love with Kimmie, but to afraid to admit it. And the same went for her. I guess allot was tied into this quick story but I wish we got the characters HEA in this book. I think the next book is Jed's brothers so fingers crossed it ends Jed's story with Kimmie as well but I have books to read before I can begin this series and that disappoints me g

Very short prequel to the newest Texas Cattleman's Club series. Jed has come back to Royal for his high school reunion for one reason. He wants to see Kim again and finally find out why she broke things off with him after he left for college. He has realized that he's never forgotten her and feels that he will never have a successful relationship until he deals with his past.

Kim is surprised to see Jed at the reunion, and not very happy when he makes it clear that they will talk before he leaves

After all these years Jed wanted closure and decided to get it at their class reunion. Kimmie knew he was trouble from the beginning but couldn't stay away from him. Together they have a night of passion and when Jed wakes up she's gone. Weeks pass before he has a chance to seek her out but finds out a surprise once
Second chances romance set in Texas with a ten year high school reunion theme. Cliffhanger! This is one of those introduction to the book and the series type short stories

Good read

This book was pretty good, but ended very abruptly. It was also pretty short. You really didn't get much of a chance to get to know the characters very well. I'm buying the next to see what happens next.

After the storm????? REALLY???

Well right about time the story gets good it ends.

I think it would've been a good story if it was complete it ends with the hurricane coming.

I thought it was titled after the storm.

Great book

Loved this book. The characters make you feel like you know what they are going through. The love makes you feel. good. I had to buy the next in the series as the teaser at the end for it was so good.

This was a really good read. I like to see two people who have unfinished business with each other come back together and find love. Jed was determine and Kimberly couldn't fight/hide from him or her feelings anymore. Short novella I wish it was longer.

Wow! What a great little book! Already downloaded the first one in the series. Great character development and a believable story. So glad I took a chance on this. This is not a typical read as a general rule.

Nice story, but why so short? And why this ending?
There could have been used more words and details to write this story.
It would make it a better story.
Now it is just a nice read.

Great prequel to a series that deals with people coming together after a devastating tornado. The reunion story in this prequel was sweet.

Janice Maynard came to the writing life early! When her third grade short story, “The Princess and the Robbers”, won a red ribbon in a school arts fair, Janice was hooked. She followed up that early success with a more commercial piece in the sixth grade… “Why My Mom Loves To Drink Coke”. No advance for that one, but she won a six-pack of Coke… remember those great little bottles?
