What a sweet, clean romance that is anything but straight forward! Erin has had a crush on Lucas since they were both very young. Lucas used to spend a lot of time at the ranch where Erin lived with her Dad. They were best friends. Then Lucas went off to college and they just never connected again. She still lived at the ranch--he lived in NYC trying to live up to the family business and his brothers. He met a women and they were going to get married. Luca was really easy going but insisted on the wedding taking place in his hometown. She happened to spot Erin's families ranch and decided that would be the perfect spot for the wedding---this fiance was a Bridezilla--and that is putting it mildly!!

Erin was friends with Lucas' sister and she was convinced to go to the engagement party---that is where they re connected in a big way--but still called each other friends--but the spark was there. They both tried to ignore it---and this is where the story gets interesting!

There were parts that had me heartbroken for Erin--parts that made me shake my head in disbelief--and parts that made me happy! This is a novel that anyone would enjoy!
