Romance on the Go

Callie Parker has to return to her hometown to do the unthinkable, sell the family farm. And in the process, she has to come to terms with a past she’d tried hard to run away from.

At eighteen, she’d left. Without so much as a good-bye, she’d deserted Taylorville and all the people who loved her. In particular, she’d abandoned her teenage sweetheart—Jake.

So on the night of her return, with tornadoes raging through the Oklahoma flat land, it is Jake who saves her from an oncoming twister. And it’s Jake who spends a long night with her in an underground storm shelter.

With violent twisters overhead, can they rekindle the past?

Callie Parker has come back to her grandfather’s farm to sell it. There are bittersweet memories here for her, those of Jake Taylor, the boy she’d planned to marry right out of high school. But when that time had come, she’d needed to escape the farm more than to settle down. Although she’d been going to spend the night at her parent’s house, when a twister comes Callie is determined to protect the farm. Then Jake turns up, to help protect her.

This is a wonderful story about learning how to make peace with the past, but also finding the strength to reach out and take what you want. I enjoyed Callie’s conflict, her desire to not repeat past mistakes but still maintain the good parts of her memories. It took a lot of strength for her to decide to start a new life. Jake was also a seriously hunky farmer, strong, down to earth and ruggedly sexy. A real man’s man and deliciously hot. He was the perfect counterpoint for Callie and they made a brilliant team together.

This is a hot read, spicy enough to have you needing a cool glass of water, but not so racy you’ll be embarrassed to be caught reading it. It gives a good vibration of small town Oaklahoma, and also leaves you with the thoughts of what farming life and a caring community can be like. An enjoyable book.
