Zane feels it’s too soon to fall for another woman, but when he meets Jessie, he just can’t get enough of being around her. It’s not long before the pair gets together and it grows hotter between them than an Arizona summer.

But Zane’s ex-fiancée threatens Jessie and everything takes a dangerous turn…and Zane could lose her forever.

3.5* stars

Jessica or “Jessie” Porter is a photographer who is hired to take wedding pictures at a ranch for Zane Cameron and his nice, sweet, and very beautiful fiancé Phoebe. As soon as Jessie gets to the ranch she’s in awe of how big, beautiful, and open the ranch is since she lives in the city. She’s also in awe of how sexy and attractive Zane is yet reprimands herself because she knows she should not be thinking those things. Zane is the oldest of 5 siblings and feels that it’s time to find a wife and settle down and have some kids to carry on the Cameron name, since it seems that no one else in his family wants to settle down yet. He’s dated Phoebe for 5 months before they got engaged, and has been feeling iffy about the wedding so he’s been putting it off for a few months. However, ever since Jessie came up to take pictures of the ranch he’s immediately attracted to her. He would never cheat on Phoebe but he realizes that his feelings for Phoebe may not be as deep or as strong as he once thought, and has to make a decision about if he’s truly ready to go through with his marriage. It also doesn’t help that as soon as Phoebe meets Jessie she’s immediately rude and standoffish with her which is very unlike her. Phoebe feels threatened by Jessie and makes it her mission to get her out of the picture, by any means necessary.
This is a very short story and everything is pretty rushed from the characters meeting, to them being attracted to each other, to making completely life changing decisions. But some people do like stories like that, where it’s just a simple love story and there aren’t a million different story lines going on so if you’re looking for a quick little romance, I’d check it out. Some characters are not always as they seem so there is an added little twist that makes things interesting.
