Synopsis: In the second book of a series, Kerri Masters comes home to Texas after her home and restaurant in California are destroyed by an earthquake. She agrees to stay with her sister temporarily to start up a restaurant but gets tangled up with an old family friend, Conner McCoy. With Kerri in a hurry to get back to the city after she sets up the restaurant with her sister and Conner gun shy over city girls after losing three fiancees whom he considered city girls, the two struggle to find a connection but somehow can’t seem to stay apart.
Overall, I liked the plot and storyline, but I had a tough time with some stilted writing and typos. I also had a hard time falling for the characters as much as I wanted to. Kerri could be prissy and annoying at times and Conner said “darlin’” just a little too much for me. And, that’s saying a lot since I live in Texas!
Connor was described several times as “lumbering’ – since the definition of lumbering is slow, heavy and awkward, that didn’t do much to draw me to him as a character. I’m not sure the author intended to draw that image when she was writing, but if it was intentional, it just didn’t work for me.

This book was enjoyable, but you do have to be willing to overlook some issues with the writing. I found the character of Kade, who the next book is going to be about, intruiging so I’ll most likely get that book at some point to read. I wouldn’t go buy the author’s whole backlist or anything, though.
