From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes the third romance in the Love Under the Big Sky series, featuring a veteran struggling with PTSD and the one woman who can help him recover—and learn to love again.
Jillian thought she was a city girl through and through; the fast cars, high fashion, and glamour—she loves it all. But when her ex tells her he’s having a baby with his new wife (after Jillian struggled for years to get pregnant), she hightails it back to Montana to cry on the shoulder of her best friend, Cara.
But in truth, Jillian would rather be comforted by someone else…specifically Zach, Cara’s brother-in-law. Zach is a veteran of the Iraq War who came back to the family ranch to raise his preteen son after the boy’s mother took off. He’s struggling to re-establish a relationship with his son, and warding off the demons of PTSD, which still haunt him. The last thing he needs is bold, brassy Jillian…but why can’t he keep his hands off her?
My review :
** ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review. **
I discovered Kristen Proby when I read Baby it’s cold outside, and she gets me!
I really loved her way of telling stories.
You can totally read this one as a standalone, and I wasn’t lost in the story.
This one was very intense and passionate. This time we get to have Jillian and Zach’s story.
They had history and let’s just said that both carried heavy luggages from their past.
City girl and left heartbroken by her divorce, Jillian endured so much in her life and her past.
But when she decided to came back near her family she met Zach again and the tension between them was so palpable, a strong an intense feeling throughout the story.
Jillian is a very strong woman, standing for her opinions, sweet and caring about her family but terribly crushed, broken inside.
Zach is a veteran struggling with PTSD, with a son. He made everything in his power to provide the best for him and felt guilty for being away all these years in the army. His ex left scars on his son and he did his best to be a great and caring father.
He always had a thing for her, but with her away and her childhood sweetheart pregnant, she let her go away. But when she moved back here, he couldn’t get her out of his mind. She succeeded to capture his son’s heart (I loved their interactions) and also his, even if he wouldn’t.
I loved how these two get along through the story, naturally, like they belonged together.
Jillian was settling into his family and his heart. But when things became to be good, a promising future, Zach issues got in the way, leaving the ones he loved crushed by his actions. Jillian was maybe tough and strong but when it came to her heart, she could be very stubborn and didn’t follow her heart.
I was so captured by this story that I was adding and one clicked the first ones into my e-reader!
Kristen Proby wrote such amazing, passionate stories that I couldn’t not fall in love with them!I found a new fave series!
