One Lonely Widower…
Rohn Lerner is a successful Oklahoma rancher. He’s old enough to know what he likes, and still young enough to enjoy it. But losing his wife five years ago wore him thin. He’s not ready to date, but he needs someone to share a meal with as badly as someone to warm his bed.
One Woman with a Secret…
Bonnie Martin fled her Oklahoma home years ago, leaving behind her abusive father, and Rohn, the lost love she never forgot. Now she’s back to settle her father’s estate, but she has no idea that she’s about to bump into Rohn or that they’ll fall for each other all over again.
One Night That Changes Everything…

Karia’s Rant…
I loved Cat’s other series and I enjoyed book one of this series…but uggg, ackkk, frustrated noise! TALK TO EACH OTHER!!!!
I feel like I can’t really review this one a fully as I would like since to discuss all the major elements and issues would be a huge spoiler for the whole book. 

I was so mad at Bonnie (whose name was not sexy to me…weird how that changes a story for me). She left Oklahoma, her home, her true love and never looked back. I cannot believe how immature and selfish she still was some 20 years later. Her worst personality trait was that she was pious and self-righteous in her opinions about everything…even when her mother tried to explain things or tried to shift her thinking. Bonnie truly missed out on life because she’d rather live with her head in the sand.
Rohn is awesome, but we knew that from book 1…and he is still awesome, sexy and confident in his own skin. I wanted someone just as confident and assured and well-adjusted for him to fall in love with and find his HEA. Unfortunately, he gave his heart away to Bonnie once and when she returns to their home town all of his old feelings resurface. Bonnie, she gave her heart to Rohn and has never loved again. Sadly, she seemed stuck in her development and her life since the age of 18. While she went on to graduate university and become a teacher, she never really dated and certainly never loved again. So why did she fight Rohn so hard? Then on top of her battling her inner shields, I just didn’t like her. 
As the book went on, I started to say, “Talk to each other.” And then I started to say, “TALK TO EACH OTHER” and then I was shouting, ” TALK TO EACH OTHER, DAMMIT!!!!” Biggest pet peeve in a book ever!
