Jobless, broke, and struggling to support herself and her invalid mother, paramedic Sophie Miller doesn’t have time or energy for a relationship. Especially with her mother’s clock ticking down. So when the sexy cowboy she meets at a carnival proposes a no-strings, one-night stand, she’s all over it. Until her one-night stand shows up again and turns out to be everything she’s ever wanted. Tucker Haywood has his hands full running Paint River Ranch and trying to deal with all the changes pulling the rug out from under him. His past has taught him it’s better to keep women at arm’s length, for their sake. Stubborn and temperamental, Tucker doesn’t have a clue how to deal with a city girl who’s scared of squirrels and dirt. So when Sophie gets under his skin, he has to do whatever it takes to push her away. Even if it means losing the part of himself he never thought he’d find.
My Opinion 5 STARS

I do love a sexy cowboy, and while Cole's story was good as the first in this series, book two was even better. I LOVED Tucker's story.
The emotion between the two really gripped me and I couldn't help but turn to the next page to see what was going to happen next. The chemistry between the two was explosive and you could see the struggle with Tucker and Sophie really had him changing the way that he would normally behave with a woman.
Instead of a normal one-night stand where he never saw her again, he could n't but go back for more and more.
The timing for Sophie couldn't be more wrong however, with her beloved mother dying in a hospice and on tenterhooks with a sister that she had never really gotten on with her live is falling apart. Having also lost her job recently as a paramedic she is broke and struggling to help her sister pay the medical bills.
Both experience pain and conflicted emotions, opening up to each other in a way there haven't done before. I did have a case of tears streaming a good few times thanks to the dialogue sucking me in and taking me on a roller coaster.
I really look forward to reading Cole's story.
