Presley, aka Katie, plans on returning back to Miami once she testifies against her boyfriend, and Seth’s life is in Montana.
At times, this book was a little slow and could have definitely sped up. This reader was able to determine the mystery fairly quickly but was still a fun read. GR has this marked as erotica, and I definitely didn’t see any of this. There wasn’t much of a character building, but there was enough to understand the background of the two main characters. If you are interested in cowboys, this one may not be for you. This is my first book by Ms. Jaymes. I found her writing to be simple but well written. This book left me with wanting more so I will venture to book 2.
