Series: Gold Valley Romance # 1
About the Book:
Jace Lovell only has one thing left after his fiancé abandons him at the altar: his job at Horseshoe Home Ranch. He throws himself into becoming the best foreman the ranch has ever had—and that includes hiring an interior designer to make the ranch owner's wife happy. Belle Edmunds is back in Gold Valley after she lost her job at a prestigious design firm in California. She's working for a conglomerate, but she's desperate to build a portfolio that she can use to start her own firm in Montana. She applies for the job at Horseshoe Home, and though Jace and Belle grew up together, they've never seen eye to eye on much more than the sky is blue. The spark between them now that they're adults can't be denied, and as Jace and Belle attempt to work together, they also fight their growing attraction to each other. But Jace isn't anywhere near forgiving his fiancé, and he's not sure he's ready for a new relationship with someone as fiery and beautiful as Belle. Can she employ her patience while he figures out how to forgive so they can find their own brand of happily-ever-after?
Giving It: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 (4 stars)
I received this book free from the author but the views expressed are my honest opinion. This book shows how people who are stuck in the past, holding onto resentment and anger, are held back from moving forward and experiencing true happiness. Jace and Belle have both experienced hurt from those who should have been there for them and are hesitant to trust again. Jace has a really hard time trusting women and it takes him a while to realize that he is hurting Belle because of this. Jace had more to overcome than he realized but thankfully Belle was patient with him. I really liked both characters and was cheering for them to be happy in the end. The banter between Jace and Belle was entertaining. One of my favourite lines was "I believe two people who love each other can work through anything especially with the help of God." I look forward to reading more in this series to see what Ms. Isaacson has in store for readers.
