Sadie Hart has a plan: return to her small town of Hope Springs so she can regain her confidence—and bank account—before giving one more shot to her country music dream. The dream that means more to her than anything. The dream she chose over her high school sweetheart, the brooding and sinfully handsome Royce Dixon.
Royce has moved on from his memories of the beautiful Sadie. Now he’s focused solely on running Second Chance Ranch, where he rehabilitates troubled teens through ranch work. But when he needs a new employee and Sadie’s the only one to volunteer, he has no choice but to offer his old flame a job.
Whether riding a horse with the wind in her hair or mucking out the stalls, Sadie can still get Royce’s heart beating like no one else. But Nashville is her dream, and Royce can’t settle for second best.
Second Chance Ranch (Hope Springs) by Cindi Madsen
My Rating: 4 out of 5
Cowboys…..you got to LOVE them!!
Sweet and Romantic, I love it when I'm reading a book and I found myself just smiling. This book will have that effect on you. Royce and Sadie, ex-high school sweethearts, 6 years later and forced to work together find that some of the old feelings are still lingering.
I kind of like that she pursued him.....NOT in a slutty and annoying way. FULL of sexual tension.
Finally at 72% ....FINALLY.....they get together......it's what I have been waiting for.....FINALLY.....SEX.....fade to black sex. Bummer, if you follow me or read my reviews, you know that this is one of my pet peeves. If I LOVE the couple, nothing is sacred, I want to know everything and be involved in all aspect of the relationship....but I digress. Sadie is struggling with realizing that dreams can change, while Royce struggles with letting her go, again.
I would have liked more in the epilogue but that goes back to me being noisy and needy. Good Clean Romance Novel....Great Backyard Read!!
