In the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountain town of Nugget, California, falling hard is all too easy . . .
This is the summer of Annie Sparks—at least according to her. No more supporting lazy jerks or coddling irresponsible family or taking care of anyone who doesn’t deserve her help. Instead she’s headed to an estate in a remote mountain town, to spend her summer with her boots covered in mud and her hands working the earth. Love is the last thing on her mind.
Nugget is a long way from Logan Jenkins’ old life as a Navy SEAL. But before he starts fresh in the private sector, he receives a bequest from a man he never knew: his biological father. To learn more about his background, Logan makes his way to his late father’s estate, where he is immediately knocked on his heels by an incredible woman with a heart of gold.
Annie’s not looking for a fling, and Logan knows Nugget can’t be forever, so falling in love should be impossible. But when they’re together, time stops, and suddenly the impossible seems like the only thinkable option . . .
I really enjoyed this one.The characters were well written. I loved the farm and the small town atmosphere. The only thing that I would say was a negative a few times it felt like the story lagged a little. I did like the connection I could feel between Annie and Logan. Logan went to Nugget to learn about the heritage he never knew, but he never expected to find his future. I felt for Annie she has so much on her plate. I really liked her. She has such a kind heart that never diminishes. This one ended so beautifully and was so perfect for Annie and Logan.
