Charlie Ryan’s cheating fiancé left her with a broken heart and an empty bank account. Her life hits rock bottom until she inherits a Montana farm named Tucked Away from a grandmother she never knew existed. A fresh start is just what she needs to turn her life around. Having sworn off men, she doesn’t need to start anything with Zack, even though his kisses are hot as a Montana summer.
Zack Cooper is content with his simple life. Running his veterinary practice and raising his daughter are enough to keep him busy. He doesn’t need a high-maintenance city girl who doesn’t know the difference between a cow and a bull. So why can’t he stop thinking about Charlie and her hot pink cowboy boots? And is he willing to risk everything, including his heart, to take what he wants?

I received this book from Netgalley, which I’m pretty sure is one of the best websites on the face of the Earth.
I debated on how to rate this book for some time, because there were a lot of parts that I loved and a lot of parts that I didn’t.
This was another really light read. It seems that I’m on a roll here with the quick, easy reads!
Charlie is a pretty intriguing character. I really felt for her right from the beginning. She’s a total city girl, grew up in New York City, and has now inherited an expansive farm in Montana. Not exactly what she had planned out for her life! But when her fiancé, a guy named Stuart, shreds her heart to pieces, she jumps on the chance to gain this farm from a grandma she has never met.
In this small town, Charlie is met by a numerous amount of characters. A beautiful, energetic teenager with a heart of gold and a spitfire personality named Sophie. The flirtatious ranch-hand Cash, who always has something ridiculous to say. And Zack…beautiful, tanned, and caring Zack. The veterinarian and the man that all the available women want.
She meets challenge after challenge. Some that are her own internal battles, and others with people who are just determined to cause problems in her life.
I absolutely adored her relationship with Zack. Jennie did an excellent job in portraying their affection for each other, and I enjoyed Zack’s honesty. Definitely different from the popular brooding, close-off male that is so rampant in today’s books. Not to mention I have a total soft spot for a hot cowboy with a gentle touch.
One thing that I didn’t like much, but I understand, was how their relationship progressed. I feel as though one minute they’re barely talking and then all of a sudden they’ve had the hots for each other and drive each other wild. It was just…very sudden. But this is very common in these short-but-sweet novels, so I guess I can’t critique that too much.
There was also quite a bit of cliche. Yet again, another thing that I can’t blame Jennie for. There’s only so many ways a romance novel can go. Even with the cliches that are in this novel, it is still very nice. The characters felt very real, and Jennie had such a gift with her attention to detail.
