Ever since her parents passed away in a tragic car accident, Eden Cross has been living a quiet, stable and predictable life in inner Sydney – the total opposite of her carefree, relaxed, happy-go-lucky past. Her parents passing and the fact she’s an only child meant Eden was left with her best friend, Jules and Matt, her boyfriend of three years as her only family. That was until she discovered something about Matt that would turn her life upside down. Eden leaves Sydney in a hurry and begins an adventure that takes her across four Australian states before she lands in Pine Creek, Northern Territory.
Jackson Henley has lived in Pine Creek his entire life. He runs a massive cattle and cropping station with his twin brother, Jeremy, which they inherited when their parents retired. He’s had a bad experience with relationships courtesy of The Bitch – Dannika, so lately he’s preferred to play the field. That is, until he comes face to face with the stunning brunette beauty who’s behind the bar at the Cow and Calf. The problem is, she won’t tell him her name, she won’t give him the time of day, and she won’t give him a chance to prove himself.
What’s it going to take for Eden to give Jackson a chance? Does he have the patience to even bother fighting for her? How will he handle the competition?
In the end, will Jackson have what it takes to convince Eden to start living again, instead of just existing?
My Thoughts ❤
When Eden stumbles upon Pine Crest, she knows the moment she steps into the town it is home. She meets Doreen the owner of the Cow and Calf and from that point on… She's hooked… Except for Jackson Hensley. She does everything in her power to resist the sparks between their touch and stay away from players like him.
I really enjoyed the storyline of this book. There's isn't an overpowering, alpha male. Instead he is a strong, cowboy, that all the women love. Jackson is full of surprises! Eden learns about herself and what she needs in life. I will have to say my fav character is her BFF Jules… She keeps it real and says what needs to be said.
Like I said, I enjoyed this story, the hot cowboy that is tall, dark, and hardworkin', but the thought of an Aussie Cowboy threw me for a loop. Never in a million years would I have thought about a cowboy in Australia… This is being said from a small town southern girl….but I guess there's a new kinda cowboy! It was a great read, especially is you want an Aussie cowboy!
