Review: I love Maisey Yates' books for Harlequin Presents. I'd heard lots of good things about the Copper Ridge series, so I was kind of excited to read it.

I was left feeling a bit ho hum about it, which is sadly how I've been feeling about most of the romance novels I've been reading lately. Mostly because it seems like everything is so similar from book to book. 

You have a quaint small town with sweet little mom and pop type shops. The women business owners all are good friends and have girls nights out once a week.

This one was a little darker with Rebecca being injured in an accident when she was younger.

I have to admit there were some good one liners.  I loved when Rebecca tells him what she'd do if he turned all "Edward Cullen" on her.

I think this book would have worked better if it weren't a romance novel. Rebecca was more of the character that grew throughout the book. Gage, was hard to figure out and even harder to like. That's what through the romance off for me in this book.

Overall the story was a good one and I did enjoy Maisey's writing, but the romance just didn't do it for me.

Rating: 3 flowers
