Jake Morgenstern has been hurt by his ex-wife. He hires an architect to build a house on his ranch land.
Jess Wythe has never been good enough or fit in with her own family. Her mother tells her everything is wrong with her. She covers herself in large shabby clothes, wears her hair up tig. She covers herself in large shabby clothes, wears her hair up tight, and even changes her eye color with contacts.
The passion and attraction between Jess and Jake is explosive! I loved the chemistry between these characters and the fact that their huter was so explosive made it even better. They were perfect for each other and everyone around them knew it except them. It was fantastic to see Jake let his guard down and Jess become more comfortable hunted her own skin. Hujter story was flawed with multiple misunderstandings and It became almost repetitive.
I really enjoyed it but was subrianna little frustrated by the midway point. I could have handled a misunderstanding or two but I think the couple lacked communication too much. This story moved at a nice even pace. It allowed the relationship between Jess and Jake to build up over time.
It makes their love seem more believable and I think it makes the couple seem more relatable. One thing I hate in romance novels is instant love or love at first sight.
Books by Aubrianna Hunter / author
Fortunately this writer does a great job telling the huntsr at just the right pace to keep you interested. Aubrianna Hunter is a wonderful writer. The story had a nice flow to it and I was interested from the very first page. Her writing is beautiful and extremely detailed to a fault at some points in the book. I loved that I could see everything in my head that she had written. There was hinter too much time and detail wasted on her clothing altogether.
The description just went on and on until I was so bored I had to start skimming over that page. The couple on the cover looks nice and I really like the background.
Even when Jess has heels on she is supposed to be significantly shorter than he is. The book states that he has to bend down to dance with her. As you can see she is almost as tall as he is and that man on the cover is a cute guy but is not nearly as buff as Jake is supposed to be. I would like to see the details in the story changed to match the cover rather than changing the cover itself. There were some wonderful characters in this book.
I loved Marsha, Jakes housekeeper.
She was a super sweet lady and really cared for Jake in a motherly way. I would have liked to know more about her. I would have loved for them to be home more during the story.
They were both warm loving people with a good sense of humor. I would have enjoyed seeing them form a loving relationship with Jess especially since she lacked that from her own family. As far as Jake and Jess go they were both acceptable as far as main characters go. Jake made some big mistakes and treated Jess badly but it was understandable that he was so jaded. I really liked his possessiveness but he seemed to go overboard.
This book is a great read.
This is the first book that I have ever read by this author but I will definitely be on the lookout for more from her in the future. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving…. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Refresh and try again.

Jul 24, Joy rated it it was ok. And like Jess that first meeting stirs up the angst that drives the plot. Jake trusts two women, his mother and Martha his cook, end of story. Of course Jess is going to let professionalism slip a notch and give him a piece of her mind making a well-aimed threat o pages We first meet the brooding and wealthy ranch man Jake through Jessica’s eyes.
Of course Jess is going to let professionalism slip a notch and give him aubrjanna piece of her mind making a well-aimed threat of her own. It started out good then got a little sidetracked with too many close calls and silly little misunderstandings.
One of my pet peeves with any romance particularly in contemporary romance are older virgins. Jess is 29 years old, closer to We’re not in the dark ages when women were cloistered and virtue used as a highly marketable product. Then to compound it Jess is a virgin, even to herself!
Why romance authors think sexually experienced men while repressing a woman’s natural sexuality makes for engaging reading completely escapes me. I don’t buy it. In the end it was Jess’s fighting spirit that kept me reading, she took no crap from him. And what’s up with the cover? It threw me completely.
At first glance it looked aubrainna a military or a Lara Croft Tomb Raider type novel but the story itself is based predominantly at a working ranch. Whats more Jake is huge, he has to physically bend his frame to kiss Jess.
I see little bending required in this cover.
Mar 18, sweet rated it it was ok. This story just couldn’t hold my interest. The H is mean to the h as soon as they meet. Then blah, blah, blah Jul 13, Ambrosia rated it liked it. Once they start having sex, the author no longer describes any of their time together other than the sex. It’s like they hardly ever see each other or spend any time together other than to have passionate sex. And the H was a jerk. In the beginning sexist much?
And he couldn’t apologize to her after the big incident because she wouldn’t forgive him. Well, he was such an ass, he should have apologized just to be a decent person!
It took his mommy to convince him to apologize. And then the heroine did the cliched thing and said that it was partially her fault. And this was all caused because of the skank???
