This book, for me, shows the sweeter side of J.C. Valentine's writing, if you are looking for an erotic read this isn't it....well maybe the next book in the duet but definitely not this first one. In this one we start off with two people that don't know anything about one another they just don't like what they see, but you know what they say about reading a book by its cover..... Yes this does change

When Vivian learns that her husband has other ideas about their happily ever after, and unexpectedly hands her divorce papers, she isn't quite sure what to do with herself. She thought her life was near perfect, one minute she was living the high society life, the next she was loading her meager belongings into her car and hitting the road in search of a new life. Which takes her to a little one horse town, full of eccentric folks, that welcome her with open arms... well all of them except one e ...more

J.C. has done it again! I love a good cowboy story but this was so much more.

We get to meet Vivian and Nash in this story. They are two different people from two different worlds. Nash is a cowboy. A down to earth guy who lives a simple life. Nash is every woman's wet dream. Sexy, smart and wholesome. Vivian is a city girl who had it all but lost it in a split second. What happened to Vivian was just cold blooded and if that ever happened to me I would kick some serious a$$

What is there not to love when a classy city woman runs out of gas in a small town? Then to have a sexy cowboy ride up on his horse to assist the woman is a recipe for a hot sexy book that is a real page turner. I love Vivian and Nash's story, but you can't forget about Gretta as she is such a big part of the story. With all the chemistry and the different lives these two have lived, it is not all smooth sailing as their chemistry singes the pages on part one of their romance. I look forward to ...more

Vivian has a perfect life, or so she thinks but all that changes when the rug from under her and she finds herself face to face with divorce. Life as she knew it was over almost instantly and she was facing a future that she would never have contemplated. She packs everything she can into her car and takes off, in search of not just a new normal but also to find herself in amongst that chaos.

She eventually ends up in probably the last place she would have ever thought possible, a little country

JC Valentine is one of my favorite authors and I've read almost everything she's written. One thing I love about her is she's not afraid to try something different. Finding Home is unlike any of her other works and I have to honestly say, I think this is one of the best written stories she's released. The writing just seemed so natural and the flow of the story makes me think this is a genre where JC truly belongs!

I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review.

In this book we meet Vivian and Nash. Vivian just wants to see the ocean but what she will settle for is civilization. One look however at the sexy cowboy has her practically jumping for joy. To bad that is the same moment one of her tires decides to blow. Vivian knows she should look but not touch if her divorce has taught her anything however there is just something about that cowboy.

I have read almost all of J.C. Valentine's books and I have to say that so far this one is in my top 5 reads.

Vivian knows that she needs to get away from the life that she has always known. When she decides to just get in the car and drive with no real destination in mind besides the ocean. When she ends in a town that is so small that everyone knows everyone and what is happening, she is not sure she will stay. However, the people of the town really start to grow on her what will she do?

I received an advanced/review copy of this book. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content and honesty of my review.

I loved this book. At first, I wasn't a fan of Vivian; she was, frankly, somewhat of a spoiled princess at the beginning, but as her character developed, I grew to love her. She went from being snooty and unapproachable to being sweet, caring, and friendly. I just loved getting to know her.

When the unexpected happens Vivian gets in her only possession she owned .. her Porsche .. and drove and drove and drove, she wanted to see the water but when the gas gauge reads empty and then a flat tire she i has to make a detour and it was the BEST detour she could have made.

When she has to make an unexpected stop in Hayfield she thinks maybe just maybe she could make herself a new home here. The people in this small town are all so friendly and welcoming that maybe she will stay.

Vivian thought she had found her prince, but he turned into a frog and all she has to show for it is an expensive car and some clothes. When her car breaks down, she finds herself stranded in a small town which is beginning to feel a lot like her new beginning except for one grumpy cowboy.

Nash is a man with a painful past. He isn’t about to let a city girl who isn’t staying around anywhere near him or his heart. Spending time together they both realize that there is a lot more to each other than

Who does not love a cowboy. Nash was freaking yummy. I fell in love with him.

I loved how fate just guiding Vivian to this town. Reading the book you might think fate had nothing to do with it but I do. This was the town Vivian needed to start her fresh start. It had what she truly needed and who she truly needed.

I love small towns and how well they pull together and are there for each other. Though there were some down sides to which Vivian will soon find out.

Beautiful, thoughtful, compelling. Vivian to me has always been lost. She got married out of convenience, something that just happened but without love. Then her husband cheats on her and she just drives. She lands in small town America where life moves at a very different pace from the big city. What she doesn’t expect is to find acceptance, love, friendship, without any strings. This was so unexpected for me as I went on this journey with Vivian. She meets amazing people, Gretta and Nash, that ...more

This is a different read from JC Valentine. This book is sweet and so different from her other books. The characters are just as well developed and the plot is as good as all her books. We find a woman, Vivian, whose life has been ripped away from her. A city girl who finds her way to a small town in the country. Nash is a cowboy and a simple man. He doesn't like Vivian and her city ways. This was a fun read and I can't wait to read more in this series!

Finding Home (Roped by the Cowboy, 1) by J.C. Valentine  
How do you love someone you don't understand? Two deeply broken people are about to find out. Nash and Vivian are flawed. Their journey is not always pretty. More often than not, it's down right frustrating, but Valentine makes it hard to walk away from a possible train wreck. Finding Home is a heartbreak waiting to happen. Will these lost souls survive the dark side of heartache or will their chance for a happy ending, go up in smoke? Fi

Gahhh! Gotta get the next book! Vivian, a bit of a ditz, newly divorced. Takes off from Chicago in her Porsche, drives till she runs out of gas. Nash, sexy cowboy, rides into her life. They antagonize each other. Greta, an elderly woman, takes her in. The ex husband, or is he, comes to Podunk SC, to get her back. The story that ensues is riveting. I have to move onto the next book! The story of Vivian's journey to find a home is poignant and heart wrenching. From a New F

I ❤ Gretta!!! She absolutely MADE this story for me. Perfect small town staple.

This was something new from JC Valentine and I really liked it. Vivian and Nate's City Girl & Country Boy, opposites attract chemistry was radiating off my kindle. I enjoyed how welcoming this town was to Vivian and how it was instrumental it was in her growth. I wanted to seriously hurt Andrew numerous times throughout this book and hated how it changed Vivian's relationship with Nate, when it was just getting better

Vivian is desperate for a fresh start after finding her husband in bed with another man. She's packed everything she owns into her Porche and is now on a road trip to nowhere. Until she gets an unexpected flat that has her crossing paths with a man and his horse.

This is a sweet and sassy story filled with feisty banter, new friendships, and the desire to trust again. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

I'm loving the start of this duet so much. I felt connected to Vivian. Lost and alone in the world, wanting to be independent but needing a connection. I'm looking forward to more of everyone. Nash and his quiet strength. Gretta is amazing, the wisdom of her years, her quirks that made me smile. Loved it and can't wait for the next step in Vivian's life.

I received a copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

I love the pace of Finding Home. There’s no rush to get to the end. It reminded me of sitting on a rocking chair on the front porch with a glass of sweet tea on a cool night. We learn about Vivian and so much about Nash. Vivian and Nash are more than opposites and they worked perfectly. Their stories will steal your heart and the references to cowboy living was right on. This love after heartbreak story is beautiful and I can’t wait for more.

I've read a lot of J.C. Valentine's books and this one was so different than her normal. I absolutely adored it. It's a quick read, I finished in a day. I love how strong and witty Vivian is, she doesn't put up with anyone's crap. Nash is a hard one, after losing his wife it's understanding. And Greta, I absolutely love her, she's meddling, gossiping and truly cares for everyone in the small town. Can't wait to see if Nash and Vivian get a happy ending in the next book. ...more

Vivian needed a change of scenery to get away from her ex husband. Nash needed to let of the pain he’s carried for too long. Their meeting was less than ideal but slowly they began to have respect for each other. Thanks to a meddling mother figure the pair start to spend more time together and the chemistry between them is hard to deny. Just when they were about to get close an unexpected problem occurs that may end their relationship before it ever truly begins.

What a wonderful sweet story about these two characters Nash and Vivian. It was well written and the words flowed easily. I couldn't stop reading this story from the first chapter.
