I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion and a review.
We are back again with the third instalment from the amazing Crawley creek series, and this time its Vin and Laurens turn and you are all in for a treat.
Lauren Kensington had once found her refuge at Crawley Creek as a foster child after her turbulent time with her mother. Lauren had never thought about love whilst she was there at Crawley Creek but she found it non the less and had her heart broken at the same time. She has spent almost two decades creating a new and very successful life for herself far from the wilds of North Dakota, but she gets drawn right back in for a family wedding, which soon leaves her thinking why? Especially when she comes across her one true love, feelings that once where trampled on are soon reignited.
Vincent Rhone has had a tough life his path has not been an easy one at all, but he has been able overcome allot to become the person he is today. But he has one serious regret, a big one from his past where he pushed his love Lauren away and out of his life for good. He had always thought that he was protecting her from his true wild self. But how would she react when he opens up and tells her that his deepest desire is to hold her once again?
Can she be his redemption once again?
Could this be there second chance on love when they are forced to lean on one another when nature chooses to strikes with a gale force, will these two lovers finally confront their past. Or will they cause one another more heartache, and grief. or will this cowboy finally man up and be able to claim his forever cowgirl?
This is for sure my favourite book from the series so far. I fell in love with the characters and the story line the ups and downs of what was happening, it was like I was a part of the story or someone watching from afar as this love unfolded once again.
Vin was an amazing character he shone right through and captured my heart as im sure he will for many others, he is a man with many faults but he has worked many of them out and is now a better version of himself than he ever was and could have been before. his emotions through out the story were spot on and the way Lori King touched on his PTSD was genius I found myself so emotional so sad.
Now Lauren she is a bit of a tough cookie she has a past of pain and heart ache but can she forget it all and move on and up? I no she projects toughness but you can sense her raw emotions which of course Lori does so well. You can sense and feel her struggle but as well as you can sense what she truly needs and that is Vin, yes he was an idiot but then don’t we all make mistakes?
I loved how we got to interact with the prior characters as well as some awesome new ones I can already sense the next brother who is going to fall and fall hard no deeply in love.
My most favourite part was when the first crossed paths once again the electric raw passion and anger of lost love between them was spot on.
There was nothing at all I didn’t love in this book but I cant help feeling jealous of Lauren she gets this smoking hot cowboy…. sighs a reviewer can dream cant she Lori?
