Never did I think a girl like Gretchen Hawthorne would be the woman of my dreams.
She is stubborn, irritating, and can piss me off at the drop of a hat. But she is also sweet and has a vulnerability about her that she doesn’t allow many to see.
She let me in for a split second, and what I found was even more than I had bargained for. Her façade is nothing more than a mask to hide her fears.
One wild night in the barn at my cousin’s house, and I’m hooked.
But she also has it in her head that she and I will never work.
Which is ridiculous, and I vow to prove her wrong.
I’m Colton Thomas, and I’m stubborn too, and I do not give up easily.
She better hold on tight because I’m coming for her. And I plan to break down all those walls she’s built so high around her.
Due to her past Gretchen has learnt to only let people so close and then backing away before they can hurt you. When it comes to Colt she believes that the connection they share can only be physical however she is about to find out that he is the one man she can count on to always be there for her.
Colt was enchanted by Gretchen from their first meeting and the he isn’t about to let her walk out of his life. He will allow her to set the pace as he shows her that he will protect her and her heart from anyone who means it harm.
Colt is so supportive and understanding as he shows her there is so much more to life than the way she is living it and I enjoyed seeing her open her heart and having hope for a future she never dreamed was possible.
C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She’s always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories.
She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes…thankfully.
She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better…that quietness changes, fast.
