The only thing I didn't care for was Caleb's "take charge attitude" and hurtful words to Ally, which she instantly forgives him for as soon as she sees him. Bleck!
Plus their problems got solved way to easily. Then the end of the story just finished really abruptly.
Tank was definitely my favourite part of this book. Bless him.

The idea behind this book is that a famous model decides she wants out of the modeling industry so she can be close to family and experience quiet Texas life. She buys a huge home that is right next to a cattle rancher's spread. The cattle rancher has had bad experiences with previous neighbors so he doesn't like the idea of a famous model moving in next door. This is a storyline with promise. I thought it could be good. Here's the problems that I had with it:
First of all, the model buys a "fixer upper" mansion, which would have been fine but instead of having the model trying to figure out plumbing or painting her kitchen, she spends the whole time calling various companies to come and do it for her. She just keeps throwing money at all these different companies who are all constantly screwing her over. You'd think she would catch on eventually. Secondly, the cattle rancher is supposed to not like having her around, which gave me the impression that there would be more arguing between the neighbors. That was not the case though. He spends his time finding excuses to go over to the model's house and protect her from companies who try to take advantage of her. Finally, I had a very hard time believing the excuse that is given multiple times for the treatment of the model by her mother. Multiple people say that her mom treats her poorly because she is jealous of how beautiful, rich, and famous her daughter is.
Basically, the plot of this book just seems very poorly put together. It just doesn't flow as a storyline. I ended up giving up reading this book 50% through because I just couldn't force myself to read anymore.
This was a cute romance but the constant evolving problems in Ally and Caleb's ( the convenient hottie neighbor) world start to get tiresome and by the time a new problem hits the other one is either hastily resolved or never fixed. Not to mention the overly quick ending. After I was done I said out loud..." That's it?". There were a lot of plot holes and quick resolutions that left me unsatisfied. Makes me wonder if the author was stuck on how to finish the story and randomly decided okay....that's a good spot. Not necessarily a bad read but perhaps a little less randomly forced conflicts and some more careful plot construction would makes this story more entertaining.
If the author had managed to finish more of the threads in the story, I would have given it a better review. As it was, I felt like the book got cut off about 75% of the way through.
