After Alexis Maguire’s wedding day comes and goes without a groom, she decides that it’s time for a change. Tired of being the dependable, steady—and apparently boring—one, Alexis hopes that a cross-country road trip will help her loosen up and find her inner sparkle. Her first stop is the Whisper Creek Ranch, where the hot wranglers are sure to bring out her inner party girl. The trouble is, she can’t stand pretending to be someone she’s not—especially around the cowboy who tempts her to stay put.
Gunnar Peterson has spent six months working at Whisper Creek, and he’s never been happier. Having grown up an army brat, he’s ready to put down roots, and the only thing missing is a woman to share his life with. When Alexis blows into town, Gunnar thinks he may have met his match, despite the wild-child facade he sees right through. But Alexis swears she won’t settle down anytime soon—so it’s up to Gunnar to convince her that what she’s looking for . . . is right here.
I have not read this author before and the cover and the blurb for this book caught my eye so i decided to give it a try. Alexis Maguire's track record with men has not been a good one. She thinks she's cursed. The last bust up came when her fiance leaves her 2 weeks before the wedding via a letter. Her sister Katie helps her come up with a game plan and she decides she's going to reinvent herself a little and become the fun and exciting one. Heading off to Whisper Creek to be the nurse there for the summer. Gunnar falls for her the minute he sees her. Forced to be a wanderer in his childhood he craves something permanent. He's a man with a plan for his future. He can totally see Alexis there if he can get her to see what a idiot her ex is. Nothing is easy for Alexis and just when she thinks she's finally found the right man a family emergency changes everything. I really enjoyed this book. It was a snap to read it flowed so well. Everyone on Whisper Creek is pretty fun and loving and a perfect place to live. Gunnar shows Alexis what love is and is her rock when she needs one. I will definitely want to read this author again and wish i had read the previous book in this series but it is not necessary to in order to read this book. A page turner if you enjoy sweet contemporary romance.
