Life on his ranch could be their future. If they can overcome their past.
Felicity’s life story reads like the script to a bad soap opera. Girl’s high-school boyfriend becomes a drug addict. Girl falls for boyfriend’s best friend. Girl leaves them both behind only to return home years later for murdered ex-boyfriend’s funeral. Now she’s back home in Montana, ready to start fresh. She’s got a long list of amends to make and relationships to rebuild, including one with the man who has owned her heart for sixteen years.
Silas doesn’t need much. He’s got a great horse, close friends and the Lucky Heart ranch, but something has always been missing. He’s not an idiot. He knows the missing piece is Felicity. And now that she’s returned to Prescott, he’s got a second chance to win her heart. This time, the only thing standing in his way is history. Drudging up the past is going to be about as painful as playing tug of war with barbed wire. But if they can heal old wounds, he’ll get the girl he should have had all along.
I wrote a really good review immediately after reading this book and posted to Goodreads while on a cruise ship to Bermuda, I just now realized it never posted.
Sigh. It must be out there in the Bermuda Internet Triangle somewhere.
I LOVED this dual POV, 2nd chance romance.
It’s the 3rd book in the Jamison Valley series, but each book can absolutely be read as a standalone.
You’ll fall in love with the down to earth characters in this small Montana town and if you have read the other 2 books, you’ll enjoy catching up with some of the folks you’ve met before.
Devney may be a fairly new author, but you’d never know it while devouring her fast moving plots filled with angst, romance and suspense.
Her fantastic character development, full of swoony alphas and feisty females effortlessly weave in realistic problems while taking you on an emotional rollercoaster.
I also love that the characters are older, filled with life experience. It’s sad that it seems like 95% of all romances have characters between the ages of 18 – 25.
The Lucky Heart is about Silas and Felicity who have a complicated past dating back to high school.
Silas is loyal, devoted and patient. Felicity is stubborn, feisty and strong willed.
Silas left town for 10 years to serve in the military. He’s back home and he and his father are having differences on how to run the family ranch.
I absolutely loved swoon worthy Silas, Felicity, not so much at first. She was a mean girl back in high school and left Silas without an explanation.
She used bitchiness as a shield when she popped back into town over the last 16 years and when she returned home for good after her ex-boyfriend’s funeral.
She wants to make amends for her past mistakes and by the end of the story, I couldn’t help but root for her and their HEA.
I can’t wait to read the next book, The Outpost releasing on 11/7.
It features Beau and Sabrina, cooped up in the Montana wilderness hiding from criminals after Sabrina exposed them in an investigative news report.
I see slow burn and witty banter in our future.
Devney also has gorgeous book covers and has become an automatic one-click author for me.
