Official Blurb: *A standalone romantic comedy with a lot of heart*
Brooklyn Manning thought her life was perfect in every way, until it crumbled down around her and turned into a dumpster fire. With her pride wounded and her tail tucked between her legs, she leaves New York and goes back to her tiny hometown of White Timber, Montana.
No more twenty-four-hour taco trucks, no more shopping at the best designer stores within walking distance, no more giving taxi drivers the finger when they angrily honk at her. She didn’t think it could get any worse. But then Clint Hastings walked into the room and insulted her.
Her arch nemesis from high school is no longer a nerdy computer whiz, masturbating to pictures in PC World magazine in his free time (allegedly). He’s grown up to be a hot-as-hell cowboy, and she has no other choice but to be a smart ass right back to him. After all, it’s what they do. It’s what they’ve always done, and twelve years apart hasn’t changed anything.
Only this time, getting under each other’s skin is a hell of a lot more fun than it used to be.
Review: Pure perfection! Tara has done it yet again, and it’s so incredibly beautiful. I feel like I start out every review the same, when I read books by Tara, but I honestly can’t help it, and I feel like it needs to be shouted from the roof tops!! I literally could not put this book down.
Brooklyn has the perfect life. No, literally her life is amazing. She escaped the small town she grew up in and is living her best life in New York. Well, at least it was that way, until everything came crashing down. Now, she is at rock bottom, so it’s time to regroup and head back to her small-town life in Montana.
Although she left everything she loves behind in New York, it’s time for Brooklyn to start piecing her life back together. I mean, there isn’t much left that could possibly bring her down, right? WRONG! Clint Hastings has a way of making things so much worse, but he is no longer the same nerdy boy she left behind. No, he is all man now, and Brooklyn can’t help but to take notice.
For years, Brooklyn and Clint have picked, insulted, and tried to make each other’s life a living hell, and now, things are still the same, yet so much different. The longer she stays the more her feelings grow, and the more she realizes how much she actually missed White Timber. One phone call changes everything, and now, Brooklyn is left questioning just how much of the simple life she really wants.
This book is AMAZING! I couldn’t put it down, and I read it in one sitting. There is so much funny batter between several of the characters, and I absolutely adored the chemistry between Brooklyn and Clint. It’s sweet, funny, and sexy all rolled into one perfect love story.
