Stand-alone Wishing Well, Texas romance, complete with HEA — and plenty of heat and heart along the way!
Colton McCord was just a regular cowboy before the world made him famous after several stints on reality TV. And even though he turned on his charm for prime time, his real heart belonged to the one he let go because he loved her…
Bella Connor thought she’d never return to Wishing Well. Although it was her home, she could never forget how he broke her heart while at the same time changed her life forever…
The gorgeous blonde is back to settle her late grandfather’s affairs. The sexy all-American boy is ready to shoot his final reality dating show. Life kept them apart and now it was bringing them back together. Will Colton finally be able to tell her the truth and never let her go? Will Bella be able to let go of the past for a chance at a future they both deserve?
Claiming Colton finally did it that other book heroes haven't been able to do - I finally have a book boyfriend!
I absolutely adore Colton! He is kind and giving with the biggest heart ever. He is thoughtful, fair, sexy, and dependable. I loved the connection he has with his sister. That was so beautiful, it took my breath away. How he put his own needs to the side to take care of her just amazed me. His way to deal with the despicable parents of his made me want to stand up and applaud him.
Even with all the sacrifices he made, he had alpha in him, he went after what he wanted, he played fair, and his heart forever belonged to only one woman since he was a little boy, Bella.
Bella and Colton went separate ways twelve years ago, breaking both of their hearts. Now life has given them a new chance to repair the hurt and pain from the past, clear all misunderstandings and built something lasting on a solid ground. If only they take a minute and communicate with each other, instead of just talking about the need to have a talk.
The story is steamy and sensual, the chemistry between Bella and Colton is off the charts. There are long, detailed love scenes that show the fire and bond that is between these two lovers. Most of the focus of the developing relationship is on the physical aspects of the desire they had burning inside every moment they were together.
With the dual sided first person point of view, the angst and tension from the past hurt and years of separation are tangible and high. The writing is as smooth and flowing as I am used to from the excellent writing duo Melanie Shawn. I wish there would have a bit more of that small town feeling in the story, the support of the circle of the friends that often highlights the plots of this author.
An entertaining, emotional, sweet, yet sexy novel that made me smile, sigh, and swoon. It hits many emotional highs and lows through the journey but every bump on the road was worth the delightful second chance on forever kind of love, and the life together that was waiting for Bella and Colton - if they ever made it to the finish line...
