This was such an unexpectedly good read. I knew I was going to like this book after reading the blurb but I never expected to love it as much as I did. This Time Around is truly a marvellous read. Stacey Lynn has written a book that allows the characters and the readers to grow together, get to know each other and fall in love. Yes, I will consider this book to be

5 Solid Gold Cooper and Rebecca Stars

I loved this story and I am so excited to read more about the people in this town in Kansas. If you relish books about small town life (True North Series by Sarina Bowen for example) then I think you are going to love this.

Cooper Hawke is an actor in Hollywood and he is hugely successful, famous, wealthy and gorgeous. He has been married to a Brazilian supermodel for five years but the marriage is over and a bitter divorce is underway. In order to get Cooper

I was shocked and surprised by this story. The cover does say it: a real life romance. And it was. It also broke my heart at watching Rebecca deal with her grief after she lost her husband and having to deal with the neighbors sabotaging her to force her hand at selling her land to them. I wish that i could say i've read something like this from this author in the past, but i haven't, so i have nothing to compare it to.

It was nothing like what i've seen from her so far, and quite honestl

"Every step away from him was the wrong direction."

I'm struggling to find words to tell you how much I enjoyed this story. There are so many things that made it special and unique. The title, This Time Around, really makes sense once you dig a little deeper. While sometimes I read books where I get frustrated with one of the main characters, that didn't happen here. I loved both of them, and when I put myself in their situations, I could agree with each of their POV. So, I just had to hold on,

This time around was a good novel most of the time. I honestly don't understand why Rebecca had so much trouble saying three little words when she was feeling them. She didn't deserve Cooper as her happily ever after. The dude did everything in his power to make sure that she was taken care of and he was there for her. He had a more loving relationship with the little goat. When I was reading the book I felt like Cooper had found his forever woman and Rebecca had just found someone to help her g ...more

I truly enjoyed This Time Around by Stacey Lynn. It was a sweet and charming story about second chances. It had great characters and really engaging story I lost myself in.

Cooper Hawke has it all. As a well-known and liked actor, his life is everything he could ever want. It was perfect. Until he found his wife was cheating on him. Now he feels lost and wants to runaway as his life implodes for all to see. At a friend’s recommendation, Cooper decides to lay low at his niece’s ranch.

This Time Around by Stacey Lynn is the story of Rebecca and Cooper.
Cooper is a Famous Hollywood actor who is dealing with a broken marriage. With down time between films he decided to go of the grid which lead him to Rebecca's ranch.
Rebecca too is dealing with a lost marriage but her is due to her husband sudden death and not to mention her parents early death a few years ago.
Rebecca and Cooper get to know one another and find an attraction that they can't deny.
But what happens with Cooper r

I have read all of Stacey Lynn's books and it has been amazing to watch her grow as an author.

This book was not your typical cocky Hollywood heart throb story. This was a beautifully written story about loss, betrayal, strength, hope, and love. I loved everything about this book. From the storyline to all the characters. It was very well thought out. It held my attention from the beginning to the very end. A definite must read!!
Sharon Kallenberger Marzola
I like this story of small-town midwest rancher meets big time Hollywood. Love the characters, the setting, the slow build from hate to friends to more. There are some slow sections but not too slow. For me personally, I don't like a lot of inner thoughts.

Full review will be on Badass Bloggettes https://badassbloggettes.wordpress.com/ closer to release date.

Rebecca and Cooper are both dealing different tragedies that may be more similar than they think. Rebecca's uncle Max, is Cooper's agent, arranges for him to hide out on the family ranch. Cooper is going through some things with his soon to be ex-wife and being a popular movie star, doesn't make it easy to go and hide away somewhere. A ranch in Kansas sounds like the perfect spot. Rebecca isn't so sure seeing how she's still getting over her husband's death 8 months ago. Cooper knows nothing abo ...more

I've read this similar storyline lately about widowers and this one has a celebrity spin on it. Rebecca lost her husband with unresolved issues that hung over her. But she needed help and finally accepts it in the form of a escaping actor from the paparazzi. Cooper has been burned too by ex so he goes to clear his head.

I like Cooper he didn't fit in farm life but he learned a lot and embraced it. Their relationship was tentative and shaky at first, there's something about Rebecca though

4.5 star Review This Time Around (Love in the Heartland #1) By Stacey Lynn

This was an emotional roller coaster of a ride to read with moments of grief, anger, guilt, romance, passion and oh so much more.  

Escaping from a bad marriage break up, actor Cooper Hawke is given the opportunity to escape the press by staying and helping out on Rebecca Splendid’s ranch.

Cooper has no idea that Rebecca is a widow, and is surprised by her manner and sharpness at times. Once he knows the truth it all begins

Stacey Lynn’s This Time Around is a gorgeous, emotional slow-burn romance in which two broken hearts find love again when and where they least expect it. Cooper Hawke is a swoon-worthy, famous actor, who had his heart trampled on by his soon-to-be-ex-wife. His agent sends him to Kansas for the summer to live with Rebecca Splendid on her cattle ranch in order to heal and dodge the media limelight. Rebecca is still mourning the death of her husband, who was killed in a car accident a year ago, and ...more

I don't think I've fully recovered from the awesomeness that This Time Around truly is. I love finding an author that I enjoy reading time and time again, but even more so when you can see the author's work getting better and better with each story. I find this amazing especially when you don't think that there is anyway for them to improve upon their talent. Stacey has always delivered characters that I love, and stories that I want to hold onto long after the final words are read. This Time Ar ...more

This might just be my favorite Stacey Lynn books. This Time Around is beautiful and inspiring. It makes you embrace who you are and fight for what you want. And Cooper might have just made my very short list of sweet guys that I fell for.

I was so excited to receive an ARC of this book, and particularly because it's from Stacey Lynn! She's one of my faves.

I know celebrity-normal girl romances are usually cliché, cheesy, predictable and shallow but this one is far from it. It focuses more on the simple life... On taking a step back and just breathe... It's far from reading about whiny, ungrateful A-Listers.

This story revolves around a widowed farm girl named Rebecca and an award-winning actor named Cooper, who needed to escape th

One of the best books I've read in a while now. While reading it my heart was breaking for both of them. They had so much happened to them and they were still fighting to try and piece their life back together again.

I'll tell you: an amazing love story of two people who have been emotionally destroyed by the ones who are supposed to never hurt them in ways that they have.

Cooper and Rebecca’s story made me fall in love, not only with them but with Stacey Lynn all over again. She always delivers a heartfelt and raw story while bringing depth and emotion to each of her characters. Their pain becomes your pain, and their love for one another becomes more palpable with each moment. The author also organically and seamlessly unfolds their story, giving them an opportunity to heal, find peace within, and experience love beyond what they could ever imagine.
