“Who says you can’t wear boots with pearls?”

I’ve always loved my life and career. That was until my boss, best friend, and partner in crime, fell in love during a trip to her hometown and made me become a bougie cowgirl. It only took a few visits to the sleepy town of Poplar Falls for me to understand the draw.

So here I am, fighting the two girls that live inside of me. One who loves the glitz and glamour of NYC and thrives in the fast-paced world of the Upper East Side. Then the other who longs to be wild and free in the laid back mountains of Colorado with the people who have become like family. One in particular.

Payne Henderson was only supposed to be a fun fling, a hot man to scratch my cowboy itch. I didn’t realize I was falling so hard for him until it was too late to stop the ride and get off unscathed.

Now I have a decision to make. Do I confess my love and reveal the stripped-down version of me, scars and all? Or do I let him go and head back to the comfort of my big city life?


This was one of the stories I’ve been waiting for. I straight binge read this series in 4 days and I have NO REGRETS. I have loved it so dang much.

Charlotte is an incredibly fun and light person. I’m so glad to have finally gotten her story and everything she holds dear to her. Payne is a sweet-heart and I had so many heart eyes for every interaction he had with Charlotte. I love that their relationship started as a fling, but grew to so much more.

I was surprised by the conflict, and not sure if it totally fit in (because it felt random and used just to create the conflict), BUT I did like how it was resolved. The conversation they had together was compassionate and melted my soul with the love clearly felt between them. Payne was so dang cinnamon roll sweet I couldn’t handle it. That ending was *chef’s kiss* and once again I am smitten with all things Poplar Falls. This was definitely one of my favorite stories (I feel like I keep saying that….another sign you should read them!!).

Overall audience notes:

  • Contemporary romance
  • Language: some
  • Romance: kisses to open door scenes
  • Trigger/Content Warnings: infertility
