High school teacher Brindle Montgomery and rancher Trace Jericho have been close friends forever and on-again off-again lovers for years. As rebellious as they are stubborn, they’re both perfectly happy with their no-strings-attached hookups. But when Brindle returns from a trip to Paris with a baby bump, it sends Trace’s wild, crazy heart into a frenzy–and Brindle is left wondering if she’s made the biggest mistake of her life.

With the way Trails of Love ended, I’m sure I’m not the only Melissa Foster fan that has been looking forward to this book.  Not only have I been invested in Brindle and Trace (#TeamTrindle) since I met the pair, but that last story really ramped up the curiosity of how things would play out.

Both Trace and Brindle upset me at the beginning of this story.  They were both being extremely stubborn.  I guess that’s the point, though.  And it was like Trace couldn’t help but to be there for Brindle, no matter what.  To her credit, Brindle doesn’t take too terribly long to open her eyes to what an amazing man she has in Trace.  So if, like me, you’re afraid the push/pull will go on for too long, don’t worry.  This story is more about the couple learning what it means to be loved and to love unconditionally.  They realize that a grown up relationship is not quite as scary as they had thought when both parties are invested in that relationship. 

As well as #TeamTrindle finding their HEA, there is a lot more flirting going on with all of their friends.  Hoo boy! There is some heat between Sable and Chet and I cannot wait to see where that one goes, she’s one tough cookie!  It was also fun to sit in on Brindles requested married women time, where she asked her married friends, sisters, mom, etc. to help her to be a more patient partner.  They share their tips and tricks for a happy and successful relationship with her and it’s a lot of fun.

Where there’s not an overwhelming amount of depth to this story the way some of this author’s books can be, it’s still very touching and loving.  I look forward to her stories and she never disappoints.
