really liked it

Very sweet and touching love story between two people that have been at odds with each other since childhood. I think this is one of my favorite types of romances. When you take two people that that have been pulling pranks and giving the other a lot of grief for many years and find out that underneath it all there was a spark and very deep emotional connection.

Many people are judged based on past behaviors or preconceived notions. Kyle and Celia are both victims of this. Not just from there friends and family but also with each other. Celia finds out that Kyle is really romantic softy at heart and Kyle finally admits what he has known for two years, that Celia is everything he wants in a woman and a wife.

Something Lorelei I think is very good at is writing about family drama and how childhood can effect the adults today. Kyle never knew who his father was and then all of a sudden he not only finds out who he was but that he left him a ranch. Something Kyle had been wanting and dreaming about having for years. It was a very touching scene when Kyle's mother finally admitted how he came to be. Being a single mother is not easy and having to admit to your child that they were not conceived in a loving relationship is not an easy thing. Kyle had a lot of emotions to work out on that but he knew his mother did the best she could for him.

Celia having lost both her parents when she was young was raised by her brothers. In situations like that the older brothers can tend to be a little over protective not realizing that for most of the time she felt like she didn't really belong anywhere and had no place of her own to call home. She too had always wanted a ranch to call her own but struggled with letting herself fully believe that what her and Kyle had was real. Instead she kept thinking it was all just short term and waiting for the other shoe to drop.

This book is about the romance between two people and the insecurities they need to overcome to have that HEA.
