Promises made…secrets kept…
Mandy Morgan swore she’d never step foot in Texas again after Beau Gentry left her for life on the rodeo circuit eight years before. He once promised he’d love her forever. But he’d abandoned their love for the rodeo and she hadn’t seen him since. Now she’s back in Texas. Her uncle’s heart is failing and Mandy has to convince him that surgery will save his life. She never dreamed the first thing she’d see when she stepped off the plane would be her biggest nightmare…the one man she’d never stopped loving.
Beau Gentry had the fever for two things: the rodeo and Mandy Morgan. But for Beau, loving Mandy was complicated by his father’s vendetta against her uncle and a promise he’d made to an old friend. Hank Promise, Mandy’s uncle, was more like a father to Beau than his old man had been. The hardest thing Beau had ever done was leave Mandy behind for the rodeo. He can still see the bitterness and hurt on her face. It has killed him all these years to think Mandy had forgotten him…maybe even in the arms of another man. But now they’re both back in Texas, and Beau’s going to do all he can to win back her love.
Mandy and Beau were together eight years ago when she visited her Uncle Hank during summers. Mandy loved Beau but he ended things with her and decided to join the rodeo, claiming not love her.
Now Mandy is back in her uncle house, because he’s terrible sick and needs a surgery, but being a stubborn guy he doesn’t want it. Now Mandy has to deal with uncle Hank surgery and beau back in her life.
I loved how Mandy discovered her true feelings and also a few stories, but didn’t like her relationship with Beau since the first place. She was sixteen when they had a thing and now she’s not happy in her life, but thinks everything is because of him and how they broke up.
I didn’t like the fact she was pushing her life because everybody say is better and not choosing for herself. She is a big girl and it took her some time to realize things needed change. But why only in the last few pages I don’t know.
Wish we could see more of these two relationship in the present, because we only have a few memories from the past and both changed a lot since them. I didn’t like the fact they jumped so far in the relationship after years being far away and Mandy a couple days before was really hurt. things happened a bit too fast for me.
#1 – Her Heart for the Asking
#2 – His Heart for the Trusting
#3 – The More I See
"What are you doing here?" Mandy Morgan asked, dropping her too-heavy overnight case on the sun-roasted tarmac. After a grueling forty-eight hour work stint and a five-hour flight from Philadelphia, she stood wilting under the brutal Texas sun, facing her biggest nightmare.
