By Harper Sloan
This is book three in a series with interlocking characters. Can be read as a standalone.
As the eldest of the Davis clan, Clayton has always tried to lead by example. Along with taking his job as head of the family business seriously, he is also determined to keep his brother and sister in line. Clay is known for being serious, silent, and stoic—completely in control of his life. And with the way he grew up, coupled with a disastrous end to the last relationship he was in, he’s just fine with his quiet, solitary life.
What he hadn’t counted on was Caroline Michaels. She’s the proverbial woman next door—the town next door, that is. Caroline hasn’t lived an easy life, but after escaping from an abusive relationship, she’s finally living for herself and no one else. The last thing the quirky, shy bookstore owner expected was a steamy one-night stand with Clay Davis.
When Caroline and Clay meet, the connection is instant, both falling into one heated night of passion before parting ways—both driven by their own reasons to deny what they clearly wish didn’t have to end. It isn’t until Caroline falls on hard times and Clay comes back into the picture that they realize just how impossible it will be to stay away from each other.
Will Clay be able to give up his rootless existence in favor of finally settling down? And, more important, will Caroline want him to?
Clayton Davis is the rock that his family. He is happy being alone and caring for his family and running the family farm. That is until Caroline come into his life and turns his world upside down.
Caroline life hasn’t been easy but she is finally in a place where she is a happy. Two best friends that are more like family and the owner of a bookstore. Then in one moment everything starts crashing down.
Clayton and Caroline might want different things in life. Will their attraction to one another be able to come together for a one in a lifetime love or are they to different?
I grew up on country music so for each chapter there was always a smile on my face because it reminded me of a certain moment in my own life. I can sum up this whole book with one song Blue Ain’t Your Color by Keith Urban.
Clayton and Caroline on the surface don’t seem like they should be together. But the more time they spend together the more Clayton wants to protect and love her. As for Caroline she comes out of her own shell and becomes a strong outspoken woman.
Clayton and Caroline bring out the best out of each other and that is why they are so good together.
In the end they have to be able to let go of their past in order to have any type of future.
