Former Marine Jake Porter has far deeper scars than the one that marks his face. He struggles with symptoms of PTSD, lives a solitary life, and avoids relationships.When Lyndie James, Jake's childhood best friend, lands back in Holley, Texas, Jake cautiously hires her to exercise his Thoroughbreds. Lyndie is tender-hearted, fiercely determined, and afraid of nothing, just like she was as a child. Jake pairs her with Silver Leaf, a horse full of promise but lacking in results, hoping she can solve the mystery of the stallion's reluctance to run.Though Jake and Lyndie have grown into very different adults, the bond that existed during their childhood still ties them together. Against Jake's will, Lyndie's sparkling, optimistic personality begins to tear down the walls he's built around his heart. A glimmer of the hope he'd thought he'd lost returns, but fears and regrets still plague him. Will Jake ever be able to love Lyndie like she deserves, or is his heart too shattered to mend?
Having loved the previous book, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one. I knew that the main guy in this one had a story to tell when we met him in the last book so as dove right in ready to read it.
I have to say, I almost like this one even better. Jake has been through so much as an adult, that it makes it hard for him to readily give up his heart but with Lyndie’s faithful determination she does not give up without a fight. The relationship between these two was just so sweet. I absolutely love the way the author puts you in the hearts and minds of her characters. Whether or not you’ve read the previous books in this series, they can all standalone so I recommend you pick up any one of them. I’d almost hazard to say, though, that this is my favorite. The emotion and realistic situations the author gave us in this book is something special that makes it one of those books where you know you’re going to have to reread again because you love the characters so much you don’t want to say goodbye!
