SynopsisFrom 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 Zack, Cara’s brother-in-law. Zack 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?
I love Kristen Proby's work and for some very odd reason this was the first book that I've read in this series. This book can be read as a standalone and you will love every moment of this book.
After Jillian divorces the bastard of her husband, who is literally the scum between your toes, she heads to Montana to be near her best friend, Cara. Moving the city can be quite the change and there's a lot of issues she runs into, but in comes Zack to save the day! Zack Zack Zack ...what a man to endure. And they already have a bit of history together, after one incredible and a bit of a misunderstanding, they've parted ways and haven't seen each other since. Zack has quite the demons haunting him and is trying to re-build a relationship with his son, Seth. Cara and Zack will have to sort through some things before they can have a relationship together.
It's definitely a heart-warming story that you'll just love. And there's so many characters to love as well, especially Seth! There was a lot of growth throughout the book that we see in the characters. Jillian no longer sits in the shadow of ex-husband who treated her poorly, she becomes so much strong by the end of the book and we get to see glimpses of her in mama mode, when it comes to Seth. Zack has a lot of demons to get through and both need to sort through their personal issues before they can get a happily ever-after.
Overall, I did enjoy this book, it's rather emotional and I teared up quite a few times. Definitely got some weird looks from my husband.
And don’t forget to read the first book in the Love Under the Big Sky Series…
Excerpt“Okay, plug them in.”
I run to the porch and plug in the lights, then run back into the front yard to see them.
“Oh, they’re so pretty!”
“Thank God they all work,” he says as he tosses the black shoe down to the ground and then moves carefully down to the ladder. “It would be a bitch to have to take them back down.”
“I checked them,” I assure him, and when his foot finally lands safely on the snow and he turns to me, I hit him on the arm. “You shouldn’t have done that! You took ten years off my life!”
I throw my arms around his torso and squeeze him tightly, then back away.
“No, you shouldn’t have been on that ladder. If I catch you on one again, I’ll spank your ass until it glows.”
My jaw drops as I gaze up into his frustrated face. For once in my life, I’m speechless. I scowl as I pull myself together and clench my fists. “You wouldn’t dare . . .”
“Put yourself in danger again and see if I don’t,” he replies calmly and crosses his arms over his chest.
“Did you come here to bully me?”
He sighs and pulls his beanie off his head, pushing his fingers through the messy brown strands. I want to sink my fingers in that thick, dark hair.
“No. I came because you won’t answer your fucking phone so I can apologize for the other night.”
“I don’t want your apology,” I reply and throw the extra lights and staple gun back into the tote and turn away, but he catches my arm and turns me back to him, takes the tote, and sets it down.
“I’m going to give it anyway.” His jaw is firm. “I had no right to kiss you like that in the parking lot for everyone to see.”
I jerk back, mortified. “You’re apologizing for kissing me?”
