All Keira Kenney wants is her happy ending. Too bad she can never make it through a With a headline spot on a hit morning show and truly mouth-watering culinary skills, chef Evie Buchanan is perched on the edge of stardom. But at an industry party, a fall lands Evie in the hospital—with no memory of who she is. Scrambling to help, Evie’s assistant contacts the only “family” Evie has left, close friends who run the luxury dude ranch in California where Evie grew up. Evie has no recollection of them—until former rodeo champion Zach Pleasant walks into her hospital room, and she realizes his handsome face has been haunting her dreams . . .
Zach hasn’t seen Evie in years—not since their families conducted a campaign to make sure their childhood friendship never turned into anything more. When the young cowboy refused to admit the feelings between them were real, Evie left California, making it clear she never wanted to see Zach again. Now he refuses to make the same mistake twice. Starting fresh is a risk when they have a history she can’t recall, but Zach can’t bear to let go of her now. Can he awaken the sleeping beauty inside her who might still love him?
Point of view:
3rd person. Multiple perspectives.
DNF at 55%. I really enjoy Rebekah Weatherspoon’s writing, it’s consistently 4 & 5 stars for me, and she has several books I’ve read multiple times – but this is boring. I kept forcing myself to pick it back up hoping something would happen. Other than being constantly told – it doesn’t feel like there’s anything between Zach & Evie. There’s also a significant amount of vague about what’s happened in the past (not in a way that’s explained by Evie’s amnesia) – but in the interactions the other characters have with each other. Zach & Jesse have several odd convos that I guess are designed to create tension or build up to some reveal – it feels forced & unnatural. And tedious.
There’s also an overwhelming number of secondary characters that don’t always seem to serve a purpose or move the story forward.
I might try Sam’s book and this definitely won’t keep me from reading Harbor. 😉
