Summary:

Daisy Honey fled Trusty, Colorado, after years of battling rumors sparked by her gorgeous looks and lust-inducing name. Now a physician on the brink of a promising career, she reluctantly returns home when her father is injured in a farming accident. Daisy expects the small-town girls who hurt her in the past to take cheap shots again--but she's completely unprepared for a run-in with tall, dark, and wickedly sexy Luke Braden, the only man who has ever stood up for her--and the man she's never forgotten.
.
Luke Braden is handsome, wealthy, and the best damn gypsy horse breeder in the Midwest. After a restless youth, he's finally ready to settle down--only connecting with women is nothing like connecting with horses, and he's never met a woman worth the energy. After an arrest in a neighboring town, Luke's past comes back to haunt him, and he realizes that his inability to find love runs deeper than he ever imagined.
.
A chance encounter sweeps Luke and Daisy into a world of passion. For the first time ever, Luke feels a connection, but Daisy's life in Trusty is anything but permanent, and Luke can't manage a future until he puts his past to rest.

My Review:

Intro: I have been looking for a new contemporary series to read. This is a series that I had never heard of before but I was intrigued. I am always looking for new series to fangirl.

Characters:

Heroine: Daisy- I really liked Daisy. She was easy to like and easy to empathize with. She was a victim of malicious (and false) gossip and I loved how she handled it when she came back to town. She was strong and smart and she had one hell of a backbone.

Hero: Luke-What a good dude. He is a nice guy hero even though he had a bit of a past. And they are not my favorite but I liked Luke. He stood up for Daisy while she was being bullied. C'mon. Be less perfect. He's a gentleman and it shouldn't strike me as something extraordinary but I have been reading so many rakes lately that a genuine nice guy is a shock.

Chemistry: I loved Daisy and Luke together. They had this sweet and supportive relationship that I really loved. There wasn't any great drama but a nice smooth progression. I don't think that would work for me all the time but I have been reading drama filled historicals lately so this was a welcome respite.

Chemistry Rating:


Ending Babble: I think I have to start from the beginning with this series. It sort of reminds me of the charm of Jill Shalvis' Lucky Harbor series with a little more western. And it sort of pains me to start a series a long way in. But I really enjoyed this one.
