Blurb: Rafferty Hamilton doesn’t plan on putting down roots anytime soon. With her divorce final, the hotel heiress has left Manhattan behind to scout new locations for her family’s chain of resorts. Which is why it’s so frustrating to be stranded in Laurel Falls while a good-looking, slow-talking, Stetson-wearing mechanic takes his sweet time with her overheated coupe.
A decorated vet who paid his dues in Afghanistan, Trace Black can fix anything with an engine and get it revving—even Rafferty’s ridiculous sports car. He’s couldn’t say the same for the knockout driver, who looks like she’s never gripped a gear shaft in her life. Women like Rafferty don’t usually stick around in Laurel Falls, but Trace finds himself showing her everything his hometown has to offer before she cruises on down the road.
As the days pass, Rafferty finds herself charmed by the pace of life and the openhearted warmth of the residents. She’s even tempted to trust again—and it’s all thanks to Trace. He’s not the kind of guy she’s used to falling for, but he just might be the man she needs.

Thoughts: Found the opening scenes on the lost bra pretty funny, same when Trace and Rafferty meet. My heart goes out to Harley and Anzu. Not sure I enjoy how her aunt & Greg sidestep her verdict on not flying back, a bit of strong arming. Hahahaha, I was not expecting the mountain goat and getting blocked by family during a steamy scene. The story flows great even with side characters dealing with love. The ending was great just enough closure for the side characters. Can not wait to read the next book about Greg.
