First off, I have to say kudos to Melanie Harlow for this cover- it totally fit Cole perfectly- Gah!

I had been waiting for their story after reading the first book in the Bellamy Creek series and it did not disappoint.

This was a story of pining and longing. Can you imagine crushing on and loving someone for over ten years and yet never having them? Plus having that person be your brother’s best friend and your next door neighbor? Oh my poor Cheyenne how I felt for you!

Cheyenne had been in love with Cole for YEARS but he had married another woman. Tragically he lost his wife in childbirth and has been raising his daughter as a single parent ever since.

There is so much packed into this romance book that I just didn’t want to stop reading.

I actually loved how Cheyenne wasn’t this weak, pining woman but was someone who still lived her life even though her heart belonged to a man who had no clue.

She was incredible with Cole’s daughter which just made you root for them even more.

The trigger to Cole finally getting a clue was H-O-T. A text message that was never supposed to be sent finally clued him into Cheyenne’s feelings and also gave him the in for the feelings he was starting to recognize in himself as well.

Though he is a nice guy (an officer of the law for goodness sakes!) I loved how that text brought out a totally different side to him.

Harlow wrote two characters that you couldn’t help but fall for and root for their happy ending. There was also so much more to the story beyond them FINALLY coming together.

It was refreshing to see that Harlow didn’t use Cole’s daughter as a hindrance which is often the case with single parent storylines and took the story in a different direction for them to work out their happily ever after.

This story is told in dual POV and is the second book in the Bellamy Creek series but can easily be read as a standalone.

If you love romance books with hot texting and stories where the pining girl finally nabs the guy, then you’ll love this one.

*Thank you to Social Butterfly PR for the advanced reader copy. All opinions are my own.
