I really like this book! So far every book in the series has been EXCELLENT! Anderson's stories are always so tender and sweet. I love her less than perfect heroines who find their prince charming in the hunky cowboys who’d move heaven and earth for them!

I was so drawn into the story at page one. Carly was blind all her life but recently went through surgery to regain her sight so when she first sees Hank Coulter at a local bar she thinks he’s the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen. When he walks straight to her, dances with her and calls her the most beautiful girl in the bar Carly gets caught up in the moment. For the first time in her life the hottest guy has eyes only for her. Who cares if he’s feeding her lines to get her in bed? She’s been blind all her life so she decides to go with it. Both completely wasted, they get hot and heavy and end up in the back seat of Hank’s truck. When Hank realizes Carly was a virgin he swears under his tongue and passes out! The next morning Hank wakes up in his truck with hangover and can’t believe what he’s done!

Weeks later Carly is pregnant but the pregnancy will have a negative effect on her sight and eventually she will lose her sight again completely. There is no way Carly can finish school, hold a job and care for a baby if she’s blind. She does not want to have anything to do with Hank Coulter because he made an absolute fool of her but she has no other choice. She has to contact him. Hank steps up to his responsibilities and he won’t have his child growing up without a father. They get married temporarily because it’s the only way he can afford to support Carly and the baby. She doesn’t plan to love Hank, after all it’s only a marriage of convenience, but soon enough she’s madly in love with him. Hank’s loved her all along. She doesn’t want to burden him with a blind wife but Hank won’t live without her. He’ll do anything to keep her with him.

Wow, these cowboys they just don’t take no for an answer. Once they have their minds set there is no changing it. Love it! Hank was so patient with Carly and he knew he had to make things right with her. I really liked the part when Hank apologized with the flashcards. It was so cute and very unique! Hank wasn’t the richest man and he was willing to give up everything for Carly. He’d rather be in debt than live without her. I really love this series and can’t wait to read the rest!
