A game of pretend with the highest stakes of all in the latest novel of breathtaking romance from USA Today bestselling author Caitlin Crews
Ty Everett ran off to the rodeo when he turned eighteen and has been riding bulls ever since…until his last fall causes partial amnesia and he must return to Cold River Ranch to figure out what comes next. But how can he pick his next move when he can’t remember how he got here in the first place–much less the beautiful woman who appears at the ranch, claims she knows him, and warms his cold heart for the first time since he woke up in the hospital?
Rodeo Queen Hannah Monroe gave up her crown for Ty Everett, and her innocence. What she wants from Ty now is a divorce. But Ty can’t remember her–or their secret wedding, or even the son she never meant to hide from him–and Hannah is torn. How can she leave the man she can’t forget and still loves despite herself? And even if she’s willing to start over, what will happen when the truth comes out?
📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
After reading this entire book, I decided 4 stars was a fair rating. To be honest, up to the last quarter of the book I found myself very frustrated with the amount of inner monologue. I have no problems with being inside a character’s head and knowing what he/she is thinking. Unfortunately, this book did not have a good balance of monologue verses dialogue. For example, our heroine would ask a question and it was literally pages later where the hero answered. By the time I got to the answer, I had to re-read because I couldn’t remember the question. This happened throughout most of the book. Also, this was my same issue with the first book in the series. Thankfully, the last 25% of the book moved faster and I was able to enjoy the story more and forget my frustration.
So, despite that issue, I did enjoy the book. The characters were complex and flawed. Both the H/h had emotional stress to deal with. I will say that Hannah was a hot mess and I completely understood why. Seriously, if the love of my life could not remember I existed I don’t know that I would deal with it as well as Hannah seemed to. There were many other conflicts in the story added by secondary characters, for instance, Hannah’s mother. Those character conflicts helped me to enjoy the story more. That said, while I complained about writing flow, etc., I did overall enjoy Ty and Hannah’s story. I’m going to read the next book which features the last brother, Brady, because despite my complaints I’m invested I the happily-ever-after of this family.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
