After numbing pain for the past five years with boys, alcohol, and all-around apathy, she finds herself on a Greyhound bus to nowhere Montana the summer after she graduates high school. Her mom agreed to front the bill to Rowen’s dream art school only if Rowen proves she can work hard and stay out of trouble at Willow Springs Ranch. Cooking breakfast at the crack of dawn for a couple dozen ranch hands and mucking out horse stalls are the last things in the world Rowen wants to spend her summer doing.
Until Jesse Walker saunters into her life wearing a pair of painted-on jeans, a cowboy hat, and a grin that makes something in her chest she’d thought was frozen go boom-boom. Jesse’s like no one else, and certainly nothing like her. He’s the bright and shiny to her dark and jaded.
Rowen knows there’s no happily-ever-after for the golden boy and the rebel girl—happily-right-now is a stretch—so she tries to forget and ignore the boy who makes her feel things she’s not sure she’s ready to feel. But the more she pushes him away, the closer he seems to get. The more she convinces herself she doesn’t care, the harder she falls.
When her dark secrets refuse to stay locked behind the walls she’s kept up for years, Rowen realizes it’s not just everyone else she needs to be honest with. It’s herself.
Reading this book again made me realize that everyone deserves a second chance and that every girl in this world(Yes,i mean it when i say EVERY girl) deserves a man like Jesse Walker.Because the only way i can describe what happened in this story is : a fairy tail beginning for a girl whose life was twisted.
Usually i pick the stories and i don't fall i love with them so quickly.But i guess when i started reading about a certain cowboy-i couldn't stop myself not to fall in love!
I admit that when i first read this book i was a little uncertain ,that's because of the way it started,but a long the way i started feeling excited and i couldn't stop reading.
Well,the main character has a way to make you want to know more and she keeps you speechless with her i-don't-care attitude.But even her couldn't resist falling in love once she met someone who made her knees melt and her heart pound in her chest.
This story is about Rowen Sterling-a girl who thought she deserved to be hated by everyone or that she was destined to be alone all her life and never to allow someone to know the reason to why her life changed like that .Why she acted like that nobody knew,until she met the right kind of people who thought she deserved to be loved and protected.She was sent at a ranch-Willow Springs- in order to win her mother's trust and,well, so her dream might become reality.
Truth be told,i liked her.Not because her life was messed up,but because she was smart enough to know that some things could change and that her life could be better.
I laughed out loud so many times because of her sarcastics answers and it made me want to read more.
You know that sometimes when you meet the right person at first you're kind of blind and you start lying to yourself that what you feel for that person is just something that will dissapear in time?(Of course,this happens only in books!).Well,this is exactly what happened when Rowen Sterling met Jesse Walker.
There are cowboys and there are real cowboys .In this case-the real cowboy managed to save the day ,showed someone that she deserved to be loved and managed to make her swoon!Jesse Walker is every girl's dream and more.Well,i admit that when i started reading about him i wanted to know more,more moreeee!Who wouldn't?
Charming,good looking and with a wish to save the lost girl,Jesse Walker -not only saved the day,also became my hero. *sigh*
It's hard not to want to write more and more,but it seems that i'm starting to write things i shouldn't!Yikes.
Also,there where a few characters i liked a lot.I laughed out loud so many times ,and also i never wanted to slap someone soooo bad.Yes ,it happens.But it was worth it.
So,life a Willow Springs-the place where Rowen was sent in order to be redeemed in her mother's eye-wasn't so bad like Rowen thought.But good and bad things can happen,and it seems like the past likes to haunt everyone.
I'll stop here with my review ,but you have to read this boook!ASAP.
