When Summer Nichols inherited half of the Circle W Ranch, she didn't know her rodeo-riding, bad boy ex-boyfriend came with the deal. But sure enough, Tyler Warren, the man who broke her heart and left her in Marietta years ago, is back and living on the ranch again, claiming he wants no trouble. He's certainly not back to rekindle their decade ago romance.
Ty only wants what's rightfully his, and then he's gone, but not even family secrets and Summer's seemingly deep betrayal can keep him from remembering the good times he had with the preacher's sweet, beautiful daughter, once upon a time. Summer is more woman than he expected...
Will Ty seize his second chance, uncover the real truths of the past, and claim Summer's love again?

When Ty returns to his hometown, Marietta Montana, the last thing he expects is to find the love of living in his childhood home.
As the secrets start to reveal, and there are several of them, he is determined he was right at the age of 18, to ride away from the town, and should have never returned.
I liked Ty, he is very straight forward, he is honest, he doesn't hide his feelings, and he has a generous heart. The way he doted his daughter, took care of her, and made sure she had everything she needed, was adorable.
Summer chose her hometown against Ty in her teens. She is the good girl of the town, preacher's daughter, and couldn't, wouldn't leave Marietta, when Ty asked her to go with him. Now, years later he is back. Despite of everything that has happened in their lives since then, the feelings are still there, and burning hot. The passion and attraction between them is something they can't ignore, and are not willing to.
Ty and Summer obviously belong together, but are the secrets going to be too much, is there too much hurt and pain in their history, that they can build a lasting relationship?
Forgiveness is needed, understanding and maturing, so the past can be left behind, and focus on the possibilities in the future.
The story flows freely from the pages, and was a delight to read. It is a novella length, so a quick read, but the story is satisfying, it made me smile and at times wonder about life. Ty had a lot he needed to process, past events and hurt to absolve, to be able to go on. The growth and the process of that is shown clearly, as well as the characteristics of the fine man he has grown up to be.
Looking forward to the rest of this new series, it seems to be full of enjoyable characters, a sweet romance, and passion that can change their lives.
