Seven years have passed since I fell for Boone West. The brooding bad boy. We were friends, even when I secretly wanted more, but I settled for what he offered. After he left Wyoming - and me - I grew up. Moved on. Or so I believed, until he blew back into my life with the scorching force of an Arizona desert wind.
I'm not that innocent 16-year-old girl anymore; I'm a businesswoman who swore never to settle again. But this older, wiser, hotter version of Boone unsettles me. How am I supposed to resist Boone's megawatt smile and his built-army-strong body?
Joining the army? Best decision I ever made. Even though it meant I had to leave her behind. Sierra McKay, the wide-eyed beauty who saw more in me than I saw in myself. I didn't dare offer her anything more than friendship, because one kiss, one touch, and I wouldn't have had the guts to go.
I've worked hard to become the man I am. I have a career. A purpose. After a chance encounter with the one woman I never forgot, I'm not leaving anything else to chance. Now I'm ready to show her that the passion we couldn't act on before burns hotter than ever between us.

"Get ready to swoon over this sweet and funny second chance romance. Oh, and get ready to fan yourself...it's hot as hell too!" (Sawyer Bennett, New York Times best-selling author)
I have been waiting for this story to be told. Love Boone and Sierra's character development throughout the book. It shows how they grew up, and how they both can now see the past in a new light of day. Can't wait till the next book!
So nice to listen to a book that doesn't have a lot of tragedy going on...just mostly love!
Not much to say about this story...it was pretty monotonous throughout.But,it was all right,enough entertainment to keep me to listen the entire story.And of course,ended happily.
Lower your expectations before listening to this book and then it'll be a good listen. The Rough Riders series was awesome, so I was excited for this spinoff, and was sad that it didn't meet my expectations. First off, the male narrator was a heavy breather, and that threw everything off for me. The female narrator was just mediocre, but she should've done both characters. In terms of the story, it had its really sweet and poignant moments, but overall it felt like a recap of the Rough Riders book where Sierra and Boone were introduced. On a good note, the sex was smoking hot, and there are some classic moments/lines that should be pinned in Pinterest or in a hallmark card, they were so frickin' romantic. Overall, it was a bit of a snore, but, I'd still recommend Lorelei James as a worthy author.
Having listened to the full Rough Riders series, I was used to the story being told from the female's Point of View (except Chasin' Eight).
So 2 narrators took getting used to, but afterwards... it was pure Lorelei James!!
I'm glad the original series has moved on to the next generations. I have an new McKay/West series to look forward too.
I was really excited to finally get to hear Sierra's story but it was long winded and at times I wondered about the direction. For example, the parts about Boone meeting his father & Sierra's mothers bridal shower/wedding seemed more fluff than any real contribution.
Still unsure about the narrators...they are good but not great. I can't understand why if you hire 2 narrators that you have the the man trying to speak women's voices & vice versa. It just comes out sounding lame. Like many of Ms.James books the chapters switch between the 2 main characters but IMO Sierra should always sound like Sierra, not like Sierra in one chapter and a man in falsetto in the next chapter.
