After her mother’s tragic death, Dani Wilde had no choice but to abandon her dreams. She left Columbia University and returned to her family’s Montana cherry farm, intent on being a maternal figure to her brothers. Now the kids are grown, and it’s finally her time to fly. Her sights are on New York City, and nothing will stop her—not even an old flame with gorgeous green eyes.
Celebrity photographer Ben Denton hasn’t seen Montana in years—and hasn’t spoken to Dani since “that night” so long ago. When he discovers he’s a dad to a four-year-old—and the child’s mother refuses to care for her—Montana and the Wilde farm spring to mind. The orchard is the only place that’s ever felt like home, but will the warmth of the Wilde family be enough to help Ben figure out how to be a father?
As the Wilde family gathers for the yearly cherry harvest and Dani struggles to figure out what she really wants in life, she discovers the shocking truth about her own mother—and learns that following her heart may lead her to her dreams after all.
My Opinion 5 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Montlake Romance, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
This is the first book that I have read by this author and after this book, I would certainly not hesitate to read more of her work.
This book may be light on the romance, but the drama of the story really grips you with the emotions that both Dani Wilde and Ben Denton feel.
For Dani, after having taken care of her father and brothers since her mothers death 10 years ago, she is FINALLY on the road to living her dream and moving to New York. She character shows endless love to her family and great loyalty, but things start to go a little wrong when an old childhood sweetheart returns with a daughter he didn't know he had.
Ben is still in love with Dani and is patient and kind towards her, but lets her know what he wants. He is there when she needs him, he anticipates what she needs, and she helps him connect with his daughter.
After a shocking discovery that turns Dani's world upside down, Dani closes in on herself for self preservation. It may hurt a few of those around her, but she does it for good reasons.
Even though this book was light on the romance, I really enjoyed getting to know all of the characters in the book. I honestly hope that there are other books after this one for the other brothers as they deserve a HEA.
I would certainly recommend this book for the story and for the HEA.
