Book Review graphic

Blurb

A sweet and sexy story about second chances … and the love of a lifetime.

For as long as she can remember, Montana Hart has planned on marrying Sawyer Nelson. But things are over between them—for good this time—and she’s finally ready to build her own, completely separate life.

Sawyer has never felt quite good enough for Montana, but starting his own cattle ranch might be just what he needs to prove—to himself—that he’s enough.

When Sawyer and Montana realize they’ve bought property in the same subdivision—the one their best friend Trace Walker is completely against—they’re forced together again … as future neighbors and as the keepers of a secret that could change their lives forever.

The more they do together, the more it seems they want the same things. But with everything that’s happened between them, are their lives meant to run parallel, or to intersect?

In this sweet-and-spicy, small-town romance, these second-chance lovers have been on-again, off-again since their first wedding in elementary school. They may take the long way there, but surrounded by close-knit friends (and puppies), they find their HEA. My Favorite View is the sizzling second book in The Mint Creek Ranch Series, can stand alone, and contains no cheating.

Review

In book 2 of the Mint Creek Ranch series, Montana Hart and Sawyer Nelson have had an on-again/off-again relationship since they were kids, but she’s finally had enough and breaks things off with him, permanently. They both try to build separate lives for themselves, but their paths keep crossing and their love for each other keeps building.

I connected with Montana much easier than I did with Sawyer. She’s so totally in love with him, but as the story progresses, she learns how to love herself and treat herself better. I applauded her efforts to grow as a person and make a good life for herself. With Sawyer, his insecurities kept getting in the way of him finding happiness with Montana, and I so wanted to shake him a few times. LOL.

Ms. Dartt’s writing style was smooth and flowed well, but the constant flashbacks slowed the pacing. I was more interested in the H/h’s relationship in the now, not back when they were teenagers, but I’m sure a lot of readers enjoy flashbacks.

My Favorite View is a heart-tugging, second chance western romance, so if cowboys (and gals) in love are your thing, give it a try.
