Gage is back and with his own story, who else is excited about this! When we first meet Gage we find out he is a tech genius who helps his older brother find a way to heal from his PTSD. I don’t know about you but I fell for him right away, T.J. has definitely changed the “geek” image in this series. In Hearts Desire she gave us Nathan a finical analyst that made our mouths drop open when described. Now we have a sexy, buff, kind, did I mention sexy guy named Gage. He has his own company that has been making a ton of money until there is a flaw in one system. Needing to get away to find some perspective Gage heads to Heart Fire Ranch. He wants to spend time with his brother and new niece, spend time in the piece and quiet, away from the media. However, it is not all he planed when he meets Leah.
Leah is the new therapist for Heart Fire Ranch and is very excited to stat the new chapter in her life. She hopes it is better than her past jobs and her past hurts. Leah has the kind of past that she would like to leave there. She believes if she doesn’t think about it and keeps looking forward it can’t hurt her anymore. This of course doesn’t work when she meets Gage on the side of the road when her car breaks down. Gage is taken with what he sees right away, loving the curves, the body, and makes a comment on… Her car. Leah thinks his comment is about her body and takes instant offence, setting the two at odds from the start.
Gage can’t figure out what it is about Leah but something won’t let him leave her alone. He tries to befriend her and get flack from Jessie. The easiest thing for him would be to just stay away, it’s what Leah says she want and what Jessie his bossy sister in law wants. Unfortunately, he just can’t and soon discovers why. Leah is like no women he has ever met, she intrigues him. So he keeps helping, keeps being nice. Leah tries to fight the desire Gage brings out in her, she has never felt it before and has avoided men for the past ten years. Love was a myth, happily ever after was for kids, and Leah was never going to feel anything romantic with Gage. This was her mantra.
So, you have two stubborn, head strong, determined characters who desire each other but refuse to give in. As you can tell this book ROCKS! I fell in love with Gage and Leah almost as much as Baily and Chase. I know you will too, so pre-order/buy your copy… NOW!
