Elijah Hays came into Abigail's life with a past lingering behind him that most people would take one look at and shy away from, but when she looked at him she saw far more than anyone had ever taken the chance to see... a man in need of understanding and support. She gives him her trust full well knowing that is something no one else has ever done, and he begins to open up to her, and soon what starts as a work friendship, becomes something much, much hotter! Abigail begins to realize that there is an attraction between them that cannot be ignored, and she decides to make a move on him hoping she isn't reading his signals wrong, cause the last thing she wants to happen is having him walk away. But she soon learns that she was "reading" sexy cowboy loud and clear... and winds up finding far more than she ever bargained for!!
Elijah Hays has survived far more than any one person should ever have to, but it's made him a stronger person, and he's learned how to deal with all of it in his own way, full well knowing other's around him have mixed emotions about him. But he has developed a thick skin through the years, and their comments, and looks no longer bother him. Taking a job on Abigail's ranch has truly been the best thing to ever happen to him, and being around her brings him a sense of peace he's never really known, and he would never do anything to jeopardize the unique relationship they have built... but that doesn't stop him from taking secret glances of admiration at her when she's not looking. She is beautiful, caring, and doesn't look at him with pity-ridden eyes like everyone else does, and he'd love nothing more than to show how much he appreciates her, but he's certain making a move on her would have him looking for a new job. But he soon learns he isn't the only one sneaking secret glances, and he gets the surprise of his life when she makes a move on him...
I have come to realize that anytime a book has Ms. Gray's name on the cover that you are ensured a read that is sure to not only fog up your tablet screen, but also transport you to a world you have a hard time letting go of once last page is swiped. Each one of her stories come equipped with unforgettable characters that you can't help but fall for, each one unique in their own right, and each one with an inspiring story to tell. The moment I started reading Elijah and Abigail's story I knew I was about to embark on another one of Ms. Gray's unforgettable literary journey's and there was NO way I was walking away until I had devoured every last page!! These two pulled me into their world from the very first page, had me completely captivated and kept me dangling breathlessly from every seductively laced word!! This is by far one of hottest reads I have seen from this author, and I have to say she came prepared to play, and she came packing some serious heat this time... all I can say is WOW!!!
I truly loved every second of this read, and highly recommend you get your hands on this book, you will not be disappointed!!! The moment Elijah waltzes into your world he'll have you weak in the knees and craving a little "punishment time" on the ranch with a sexy cowboy of your very own!!!
