Okay, to start, this isn't a bad book. I don't regret buying it, and I might read it again sometime in the future. If you have read Becca Van, then this is going to feel a little familiar. It is essentially her last couple of non paranormal books combined into one story, but new names. The timing was a bit confusing at the beginning. The 8 years reference is just misleading and can be disregarded; it isn't really relevant except to show her nomadic life in foil to the romance and stability and provide a basis for character development. That's fine, but I thought the 8 years was in reference to the attack, and isn't explained very well. This isn't a huge deal, but is a flaw. becca Van is improving in her writing, fewer grammar mistakes, and conversation is more fluid. However, she is stuck on heroes' love at first sight of the heroine, and has a plot that is getting a bit lazy. For the sake of speed of publications, her plots are very much wash, rinse, repeat. That being said, it is a quick, fluffy read, and I will certainly continue to try her books. I think if the author did some research, tried expanding on her plots, she'd really increase quality. Anytime one of her heroines has ambition or is a workaholic, the story becomes implausible and...well, bad. If the heroine is described as a rancher or secretary, try it. If she is a cop or pilot, etc, don't waste your time; it will read very amateur, lacking any credibilty. So, should anyone buy this book? Sure. It is a nice read, nothing too thought-provoking, but enjoyable nonetheless.

With each book marla monroe releases, her writing improves. The story building is different, better in this border book, and the characters have more personality. I wIsh there was more substance to the book, but it was good
