This was my first time reading a book by Jean Brashear and I absolutely enjoyed this book especially after the last few awful books I read. This is a Texan novel based in the small town of Morning Star, where life is slow paced and about ranches and family life. I really enjoyed Jeans style of writing especially the fact that she enabled the reader to emotionally connect with the characters through the dual point of view narrative style. Boone's character was the typical Texas cowboy who loves his ranch and his town, but there was also a selfless lover in him which I really enjoyed because he was willing to give up his happiness for the one he loves. Maddie's character was sweet and tender,but at the same time I love that she stood up for herself and never let Boone walk all over her. The chemistry between Boone and Maddie was good and I enjoyed watching them fight their attraction. I would have personally liked the book to be a bit longer and would have enjoyed more depth in the characters as well as a little drama,, but overall this was a great book and I will be looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
