    This is the kind of book you slip into like a blissful warm bath in a room full of scented candles The writing seems effortless, a sure sign the author worked her socks off , the dialogue is spot on, the love story, with its skilfully interwoven flashbacks to the heartbreak of the past, unreels with the right amount of build up and tension to keep the reader guessing Although a novella, the two main protagonists, Carly and Josh, are deftly and sympathetically drawn, with the right blend of humour and poignancy, instantly recognisable, instantly likeable, another difficult feat to accomplish in a short novel.Their story comes to its dramatic climax over the space of a long weekend when Carly returns to the scene of her childhood, Montana, to celebrate the 95th birthday of Oma, grandmother of Josh and his sister Ruthie, one of Carly s closest friends Here, old and new mingle with irresistible charm I was transported thousands of miles to the wide open spaces of the American Midwest where thoroughly modern girly outings dressing up to go to cocktail bars and foot spas are set against ...

    4.5 starsIf you re looking for a traditional romance, this isn t it The plot does revolve around a romantic relationship between the two main characters, but it s so much than that Well written and slow burning, the author gives us a story that goes beyond being the telling of love affair Josh Kendall is a handsome, hard working, kind hearted rancher, and Carly is a smart, successful, career woman I couldn t help but like them both because they felt like real people Just like real people, they have problems One central, life altering issue happens when Josh and Carly are teenagers, and its effect is so profound that it reverberates throughout the entire story The way in which they deal with this issue impacts their development as characters as well as shapes their friendship and romantic relationship Surrounding Josh and Carly is a cast of supporting characters, each individuals in their own right, providing comic relief and fleshing out the story fantastically As another reader has pointed out, there were moments where the reader was forced to stay in Carly or Josh s head too long, being subjected to inner conflict than necessary Times like these, I struggled to stay focused on the story, as I wished they d stop mulling over everything and get on with it Griping about these few instances is being nitpicky, as the novella was largely enjoyable, and the inn...

    Blaque Beauty and the Rancher is the second novella in the Blaque Beauty Collection however, it is a standalone read Having now read Blaque Beauty and the Rancher I am super interested to go and read Blaque Beauty and the Billionaire Erin Lee Daniels really pulled me in with this one, and with billionaires being a particular weakness of mine, I m positive that I will love the first book in this collection.I ll be honest by saying I was somewhat tentative at first The story interested me from the get go, but for the first couple of chapters I wasn t as pulled into the story as I would have liked to have been I think this is because it took me a while to wrap my head around the characters and events, then how everything was connected As soon as things clicked into place however, as soon as I knew what was what, I fell deep into the story.It s very much one of those stories you need to complete in a single sitting It has all the necessary drama and intense moments to keep you engaged, it will leave you experiencing a whole range of emotions from heartbreak to joy, and throughout you will be thoroughly addicted You re pulled into a wonderfully sweet story, with a constant fear of whether or not the characters will get the happily ever after you wish for them Everything about the story the lives of th...

    Best friends become soul mates Blaque Beauty and the Rancher is a really sweet romance It takes place on a ranch in Montana when Carly comes back for for a birthday celebration for an elderly friend She s had a thing for rancher Josh since she was a kid and seeing him again resurrects old feelings The same goes for Josh, but he s not as forthright with his feelings for Carly as she is for him Josh has a lot of unresolved feelings over the loss of his mother and Carly leaving Montana shortly after her death some years before Despite Josh s reservations where Carly is concerned, he s terribly drawn to her Carly is realizing those old feelings she has for Josh might be love A lot of angst occurs between them before they figure things out, but as in any good romance love conquers all I loved the push and pull of this story between Josh and Carly and I really loved the ending I read Erin s f...
