I was coming off the heels of reading two serious toned books and needed a diversion. Maisey Yates’ series is the perfect escape for when you need to shift reading gears.
Cain Donnelly needed a fresh start: his wife left him and his daughter to never return. After four years of waiting for her he relocated from his home in Texas to Oregon – much to the displeasure of his daughter, Violet – leaving their ghost behind. Alison Davis is a young divorcee who left an abusive marriage. She prides herself on helping women just like her by employing them at her bakery, but is still haunted by the woman she used to be.
Each has been celibate for four years. Neither wants a relationship, but they take one look at each other and something is definitely there. They enter into a no strings, purely physical arrangement but things get messy. Hot and messy, and more messy.
Reading about cowboys made me miss my TV cowboy crush, Wade Kinsella…just look at that smile 😉
Cain’s character is quite charming too. Yes, he may be damaged and have terrible communication skills, but you can’t help but to root for him. Alison you just want to shake and tell her to “wake up darn it!” Hehe. If you are looking for a romance series check out Mrs. Yates’ work.
If you have read her work before, let me know which is your favorite of her Copper Ridge series.
