I know this series has been going on for a long time, and I joined in one or two books back, and I was surprised at how easy it was to jump into such an established series, and how easy it was to enjoy the character that the author put in front of me. I was really excited to read this book, I love the western ranch setting, and I enjoyed the other book I had read in this series a lot, and in the end I was really pleased with the book. The book starts out with Zach, who apparently has left a lucrative career behind to start over in a completely new place making very little money and living out of an airstream trailer, complete with solar shower. To say this guy did a complete 180 would be a bit of an understatement. He’s a bit of an outsider because of his newcomer status, but he’s just an genuinely a good guy, and I think the thing I liked the most about him was that he reserved judgement about people until he had all the facts.

I myself, am a complete animal loved, and have been guilty of taken in a broken animal without having a clue as to how much work it was really going to be. But as Lily finds throughout the book, it’s totally worth the time and effort to learn, because the bond she has with these animals is fantastic and she has such pure intentions of doing right by these animals who had no where else to go. I think one of my favorite things about Lily is that while she is a free spirit (gotta love those bright colors), she also recognized that she doesn’t know everything and wants to do the best she can for these animals, even if that means giving up a little bit of that free spirit. Regan as a male character is definitely someone I enjoyed. Of course he is the token good looking man, but there is so much more to him beyond that. He’s a little bit damaged from a past relationship, but he’s still such a good with such great heart. He’s educated, and cares for animals, and in a man that’s like the perfect combination for […]
