Garrison Taggart doesn’t have time to deal with touchy-feely junk like “trust issues” or “feelings.” His dad’s health is waning and the family’s Wyoming ranch is being sabotaged. Too bad his supernatural ability to tell when someone is lying has been exactly zero help in ferreting out the betrayer so far. So, when sweet schoolteacher Sara Lopez raises concerns about his son being bullied, who can blame a guy for getting a little testy?
The last thing Sara needs is any more attention or gossip after her recent breakup with big-shot rancher Hank Brand. So her attraction to surly but sexy Garrison, Hank’s rival, is entirely unwanted. When she uncovers an insane plot to kidnap the Taggart boy and throws herself in harm’s way to protect him, Garrison must risk his deepest secret and his own life to save the people he cares for the most. But will his heroics cost him everything?
I received this book to give an honest review.
So I was told this book was a western romance and for some reason I had it set it in my head that I probably wouldn't like it because I am not a fan of western books. That being said I finally was able to get to this book and I was really amazed at how much I was into. It didn't feel a western. Just a really hot dad who has a lot on his shoulders and works a ranch.
We are introduced to Sara who has come back to Copper River to work as a teacher then she plans to move on. She knows being a small town everyone likes to talk and they are probably talking about her.
We are also introduced to Garrison who is dealing with his ex-wife leaving, trying to work on the ranch and most importantly take care of his son. I honestly think if Garrison didn't have his family there to help him out a bit he would probably have broke.
Slowly but surely a romance comes about between the two characters yet it isn't easy for them both. Hank Sara's ex will be play a big role and he doesn't seem to have all his gears working right because he will stop at nothing to have what Garrison has.
I did like the psychic element that was within the book that was actually pretty cool though I would have liked more background to the family's ability, also I liked how much it was about family for Taggart clan.
I think the author did a neat job of building up the action and the danger that was becoming present.
I did notice that there was a book two and I will be reading it.
