Nothing like a wedding to get a girl dreaming of
happily-ever-after . . .




Kessed Ling’s best friend’s big day is finally here. It’s especially exciting
because it’s Kessed’s chance to show her childhood crush she’s not just a young
bridesmaid, she’s a full-grown woman—with red hot desires. But when her
long-awaited prey barely blinks an eye at her, Kessed retreats right back into
her deeply guarded heart. Doesn’t matter that chivalrous Jasper Matthews steps
in and offers a shoulder to lean on. Kessed is no longer in the market for a
man, despite how unsettled the strong, silent groomsman makes her feel . . .



As a veterinarian, Jasper better understands a skittish filly than he does
willful Kessed Ling. But when fate finds him playing ranch hand alongside the
raven-haired beauty, Jasper realizes she’s a woman running scared—and he’s just
the man to tame her. So with soothing words and bold kisses, Jasper sets out to
show Kessed how good it can be between a man and a woman.  Especially when
the man is falling hard and fast in love . . .

 

“Obsessed. That’s how I felt while reading this book, like every page was
better than the previous. Just try to put this down, I dare you.”

Our Review:

“Change of heart, 5 stars”


Kessed has been in love with the same man for as long as she can remember. Only problem is he’s as dense as a box of rocks and doesn’t realize she’s in love with him. When Kess meets Jasper, she’s attracted to him but has no plans of making a move. I mean her hearts always pointed to Sterling so what’s the point of even trying with someone else?

Jasper instantly likes Kessed and wants her but knows she’s not available. But when forced to spend some time working side by side with her he realizes there’s more to her than what even he realized and that he may be able to make a play for her after all. When he finally gets the girl will he be able to keep her?

I was cheering for these two from the start. Jasper takes Kess the way she is and wouldn’t change a thing about her. He lifts her up and makes her heart happy. Kess soon discovers there’s more to love than struggle and finds herself wanting to be with Jasper as much as she can. Has her heart changed course?

Vayden’s writing was flawless. I loved all the characters from the main to the secondary. The farming life style was pretty spot on and I loved the little touches Vayden added throughout the story. I cannot wait to see what she does with the next book in the series.

mess to clean but she loves every moment of it! Life is full—of blessings and
adventure! Needless to say she’s a big fan of coffee and wine…and living in
Washington she’s within walking distance of both!
