Goodreads Summary:

There’s optimistic. And there’s Jesse Walker.

If he wasn’t so charming, his sunny disposition and incessant grin would get annoying. Fast.

Falling in love with the girl who had at first seemed immune to it, was the best thing to happen to Jesse since the Walkers adopted him into their family when he was five. But loving the girl who has her fair share of secrets is about as easy as that same girl loving the boy who seems to have none.

As Jesse’s life continues at the ranch, and Rowen begins making her mark in the Seattle art community, they begin to wonder where the middle ground is. Or if there even is one.

As push comes to shove and choices aren’t only needing to be made, but forced to be made, Jesse and Rowen have to face what their lives might look like without the other.

Can two people with such tragic pasts and different presents, go on to expect a promising future? Whatever the answer, they’ll need a lot more than love to make it.

What Made Me Swoon:

"I held my smile for another second before my mouth dropped to hers.  Rowan sighed again, and before I gave my body permission, I'd shifted until I was holding my weight above her.  The pace of our kissing never slowed.  Her hands moved for the buckle of my belt at the same time mine moved for the hem of her shirt.  Rowan was kissing me, touching me, and loving me in all the ways I could ever want to be loved.  She was expressing her love in ways I'd never known existed the first five years of my life.  She's love in human form, and even though I could tell she was still half-asleep and I was exhausted, I made love to her.  We went slow and locked on to every touch like it was our first time all over again.  When I moved inside of her, our combined sighs filled the room.  And when our breathing turned into something heavier, I felt her unspoken words in her touch.  She'd never loved, or never could love, anyone like she loved me.  Rowan Sterling consumed me."  (eARC, Loc. 105)
