Review: Close Enough to Touch
Cole is absolutely intrigued by his new next door neighbor. He's on the mend from a serious horse riding accident and she's a welcome distraction. Although he doesn't have the best memories of city girls, he can't help but be drawn to her. He loves her tough exterior but is convinced she's not as hard as she seems and each moment, no matter how fleeting, that he sees her vulnerability peek through, he falls even harder for her.
I adore Cole. He's been through so much and yet each day he chooses to be positive, chooses to believe that with hard work, his dreams have not escaped him yet. Plus - he's a sexy cowboy! Grace was another story, however. Talk about your tortured heroine. You can tell she's just had it really rough in life and after so many punches, you have a harder time rolling with them. Still, as much as I liked her and rooted for her, the darkness and constant self-berating was a bit much to read.
All in all, I still enjoyed the first book of Victoria Dahl's new series and look forward to reading the short stories in between before getting to Grace's BFF Merry's story! If you're looking for an emotional yet sexy read, check the Jackson Hole series out!
