I fell in love with his rope skills. I stayed because somehow he took hold of my heart and made it his.
Callum Valentine didn’t mean to eavesdrop. Then again? When a man is calling a woman fat right in front of your table, it’s kind of hard not to intervene. Especially when the town’s most beautiful creature ever is the one being called fat.
Desi just wants to be left alone. After an ugly divorce, she thinks she’s in the clear. Then her ex takes it upon himself to continue to make her life miserable, giving Desi no choice but to take it or leave.
In fact, her bags were nearly all the way packed when Callum poked his nose into the most embarrassing spectacle the town of Kilgore has ever witnessed. The moment he declares her his and off limits, everything changes—and definitely not for the better.
As if things couldn’t get worse than being called a pitiful, fat heifer in front of the hottest man she’s ever seen, Callum has to go and say that she’s his, and they have to play a game that she’s not quite sure she wants to be playing.
But before her eyes, things change. And suddenly the rules of the game aren’t clear. And they’re crossing boundaries neither one of them see coming.
“The real deal, 5 stars”
Desi was put down time and time again during her marriage leaving her feeling like less than. And when the hottest man she’s ever known walks her way and doesn’t walk away she can’t believe it. Callum prefers his women to eat what they want and not because they think they should. When he hears Desi’s idiot ex throwing insults her way he can’t help but step in, because as far as he can tell she’s perfect.
Desi is insecure and finding out how to love herself. Callum is trying to find his feet after being home for the first time in years and transitioning out of the military. These two can’t stay away from each other though and they don’t try very hard. Callum’s all alpha and believes you treat a woman right. And well… Desi’s never been treated right. The question is will she let Callum in or will her exes words haunt her.
I loved these two. Ugh, I wanted to punch Desi’s ex. I love everything about the Valentine family and how they are proving the town wrong. I cannot wait to see what Vale does with the rest of the boys.
