Garrison Taggart has always lived on the ranch that he is now running for his father. There is always lots to do and not enough hours in a day to do everything so when his son's second-grade teacher, Sara Lopez, tells Garrison that Zach is having trouble at school he doesn't handle it well. Sara wants the best for her students so she asks Garrison personal questions hoping to get a better idea of Zach's issues, but that worries Garrison even more. He's afraid she has seen a paranormal ability in his son since the rest of the family has them. Sara was actually concerned about the Brand boys bullying Zach. Some of the Brands hate the Taggarts and are making life pretty bad for them.
I liked the characters in this book. Well, except for Garrison. While he was physically perfect and very competent at running the ranch, his personality left a lot to be desired. He was very brisk and somewhat grumpy. Of course, he had lots of reasons for this, like his wife leaving him a year ago and cleaning out his bank accounts - leaving him with financial problems, the Brands trying to get his land, his father's health and his son being bullied are just some of his problems. Sara was a wonderful woman but she had her own problems. She was still trying to live down the trouble she caused in this town when she was younger. She also had to stay in her job for 4 years in return for her college education, so no matter how hard she found it she had to stay in there.
With the unusual abilities, these cowboys had this wasn't a typical western romance. It was interesting to see the way the author worked out the feelings Sara and Garrison had for each other.Read more ›
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: romance, paranormal
I really liked the sound of this story, but had a few issues with it. I haven’t read any of the Hell to Pay books, and when there’s time I’ve book marked them to take a look at esp as they’re currently on KU. So many books, so little time....It may be that I’d have got more out of this book if I’d read them.
So, I love paranormal romance but the romance here felt a little flat for me. Why on earth did Sara go out with Hank before when the guy's a fruit loop? OK it was a year ago and he wasn’t as crazy, but did he really change so much in a year. Why not go for Garrison as he was there and she’s attracted to him, instead of the nutso?
Made me think she wasn’t a great judge of people, and then as a teacher she’s worried about Zack, which was great, but a couple of times she let the bullying get out of hand because of fear of her job? It didn’t make me like her any better.
Having said that Garrison who she’s got the hots for now is a jerk. Really; he’s surly, rude to her ( and his family most of the time), says all the wrong things even if he means well. Its only with Zack that his good side comes out.
His family too weren't great, didn’t seem to like each other much, although they all had different problems which were only touched on, so maybe that contributed to it but I just didn't understand why they all stayed, I needed more of that, to understand them better, to see their reasons.
The paranormal aspect was muted, came out more towards the end but was pretty thin. Jillian says it’s going to build more in the later books and I can see the potential it has, but in this book it just didn’t feel it was made the most of.Read more ›
Wow, well that was a surprise, I haven’t read anything by this author previously but that is very much my mistake because judging by this book, I may have been missing out!
There is more to Garrison Taggert than meets the eye but that isn’t what initially comes to mind as you read your way through this story, what is blatantly obvious is the fact that he is up to his eyes in responsibility. Single parent, raising his son Zach, who is the absolute apple of his eye, he is also doing everything he can to keep his father’s ranch from failing but it isn’t as easy as one might think when it looks like the damage that is being done is being orchestrated!
Sara Lopez, works in Zach’s school and when she expresses her thoughts on a situation that appears to be brewing between Zach and a couple of other boys in the school, it is safe to say that Garrison doesn’t take the news well, especially when the boys involved happen to be related to the school principal.
They seemed to be at opposite ends of the same rope in some respects, Sara has a plan to do what she has to do to pay off what she owes and then be on her merry way, moving on to other things, Copper River isn’t where she sees her long term future being, Garrison on the other hand can’t see his future anywhere else, the ranch is in his DNA and he is going to fight with everything he has to save it and with pressure from all sides he has his work cut out. Especially when he is faced with relentless pressure from the folks who own the neighbouring ranch.Read more ›
