“There’s an adorable kid, two people that clearly should’ve never broken up reconnecting and all the small town charm you can expect from these stories.”
~ Under the Covers

I’ve been wanting to read more cowboy romances and when I saw this new series by Jennie Marts, and lets face it that beautiful cover, I thought this was it.  I’ve never read (or heard of) this author before and I was excited to try her.  Sadly, this book was a bit lackluster for me.  That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it but it was a little forgettable.

Rock and Quinn were high school sweethearts, he decided that he was going to go off to be a big NFL superstar and had no room in that life for sweet hometown girl Quinn so he broke her heart and left her behind when he went to college.  She had a one night stand after that and she got pregnant and has been back home raising her daughter by herself ever since.  Now Rock is back in town after a bad injury to recover and seeing Quinn next door again makes me realize all he threw away and wants back.

As you can imagine this was a cute story.  There’s an adorable kid, two people that clearly should’ve never broken up reconnecting and all the small town charm you can expect from these stories.  But like I said before, it felt a bit too simple for me.  Nothing stirred me enough to make this an impressive read or one that leaves me dying for more from this series.  It’s entirely possible I will pick up the next one and give this author another shot, though.  In the end, I wanted Quinn to make Rock work a little harder to get in her good graces.  I love a good groveling and Rock had it a lot easier than I wanted.  But still, this was a cute read and loved the small town vibe of it.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

I read a novella she wrote for an anthology and liked it. Oh yes, I can see why you picked it up. I might have to give her books a go again b/c I do like my small town romances with cowboys. 🙂

I adore Jennie! I’ll have to get this. Sometimes I like that simple kind of small-town story. Thanks for the review!
