Publisher's Summary

Born and raised in the quaint mountain town of Saratoga Falls where everyone knows everything, Samantha struggles to escape the harrowing night that changed her life three years ago. While she finds solace in the hard work that keeps her father's ranch afloat, her guilt and heartbreak makes it impossible to completely move on or forget. But when Sam's past comes rumbling back in a lifted, cherry red pickup truck, it's all Sam can do to keep her wits about her. A heat wave, a pair of familiar blue eyes, and a camping trip with friends will leave her questioning everything she's become in the wake of the most horrific night of her life.

Everyone knows that Reilly, the all-American boy-next-door, had a troubled home life. He couldn't wait to leave for the army after high school, but that was before he fell in love with Sam and captured her heart - only to break it when he was deployed. Now, Reilly returns home to close the darkest chapter of his own life, only to learn that what happened to Sam in his absence is what will haunt him the most.

Sam, Reilly, and their quirky friends will venture down a winding path of self-discovery and second chances in Whatever It Takes, a small-town love story bursting with raw emotion, unwavering friendships, and plenty of heart.

Note: This is a story about love and loss. It contains mature content, sexual and other.

Everything a love story should be

A beautiful story about life and love, and how everything you do in both ricochets through the world around you. Samantha and Reilly certainly had no idea that one day their paths would cross again, and yet to see them come together seems such a right of passage in both their lives. If you like stories about second chances on a missed love with a small town setting, you will like this book.

Endearing and heartwarming

A well-written and heartwarming story. The narrator did a wonderful performance bringing the characters to life. Done quite nicely.

For Samantha and Riley, the long journey to a second chance together is filled with personal demons and tragedy. I love that this is a small-town romance and filled with emotions that will melt your heart.

Sam & Josh

Whatever it Takes by Lindsey Pogue is a wonderful love story. The title was so fitting. The journey Sam and Josh took to find love was so good. The author wrote incredible imagery, sweet emotions, and realistic characters. Lauren Sweet and James Cavenaugh were magical bringing the characters to life. I really enjoyed this listen. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. This was my first listen by the author, and I will definitely be adding her to my list to listen to again.

More than a romance

Absolutely loved this audiobook. It’s probably the best one I’ve listened to. The story had me hooked and I didn’t want to put it down. The story is more than a romance. I liked the world created around the characters. I’ll be honest, if I’d of known the details of the story before I began I’m not sure I would have picked this book to read. The execution of the story is what made it good for me. Highly recommend.

Sam is broken. With the loss of her father and an unhappy home, she’s struggling to move on with her life. Her relationship with her stepmother is unhealthy but the only thing she has.

Riley’s father has passed recently and he’s returning to his home town. When he left he didn’t realise how bad Sams life has spiralled. Although the turns in events put these too on uncomfortable ground. To make a future both need to overcome their demons.

This is a second chance romance. It’s set in a cowboy town. It deals with difficult topics. The romance is about more than attraction.

5 out of 5.

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

A Saratoga Love Story

I enjoyed this book immensely. I would like a Josh Riley of my own!
I couldn't put this book down. I hope Book 2 in the series is just as good. I loved this book and can't wait to read the next.
