When Quinn Montgomery leaves the horrors of her past behind her, she never expects to run straight into the arms of a blue-eyed cowboy. Sneaking into the stables and getting caught in a life-threatening fire was never part of the plan. And neither was falling in love with the man who saved her life, Brody Parker.
The two share an undeniable connection, and slowly Quinn begins to open up about her past. Putting her trust in the wrong person has burned her before, so when Brody asks her to stay at the ranch, she can’t help but wonder if she’s about to make another bad decision by staying. A decision that could hurt everyone she’s come to care for.
Will Quinn choose to run from the past that threatens to catch up with her? Or will she stay and fight, sacrificing whatever it takes for the man who sets her heart on fire?
My ARC Review:
The third book in this Healing Hearts series by debut author Laura Farr, and goodness me what a read this was!! Laura’s writing is just going from strength to strength and I absolutely loved this one – Quinn and Brody are wonderful characters that will melt your heart.
Quinn has lost her mum and is having to live with her step dad, who has turned to drink and violence, beating Quinn on a regular basis. Quinn escapes and travels as far away as she can and ends up in Marble Falls. She has nothing and no money. Looking for work she ends up staying in the barn on the Parker Ranch hoping to get an interview in the morning. But during a storm the barn sets on fire and Brody ends up rescuing her.
Brody can’t get Quinn out of his head! He has never felt this pull towards a girl in his life, wanting to make sure she is safe and protected, even though she is a stranger.
The Parkers end up taking Quinn into their household where she will work as a cleaner and live in Savanah’s old room. Quinn and Brody find themselves together all the time, unable to resist their undeniable attraction to each other.
This was a fabulous read, I really felt for Quinn and Brody in this. Quinn has suffered a lot and lives in fear, but she is such a lovable person and fits in so well with the Parkers, I was really rooting for her HEA.
Brody was always a bit of a player, never wanting more than the odd couple of dates with the same girl, but since meeting Quinn he can’t see past her and can’t deny how attracted he is to her. He’s such a good guy, strong, kind, caring and protective, he would do anything for Quinn and I loved him for it!
This is an emotional and heart breaking read at times with everything Quinn has gone through. The rest of the Parker family feature heavily in this book, their stories are from the previous 2 books, and it was lovely to see their continuation in this book also, they are such a loving and supportive family, makes you want to be part of them! Quinn and Brody’s relationship is sweet and steamy, with some added suspense and angst in the storyline also.
It really is a brilliant read from such a new author, so if you haven’t tried Laura’s books yet I suggest you give them a go, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!! 5 well deserved stars.
