CEO-turned-rancher Curran Shaw is no stranger to hard work, but women have never required much effort. When a mysterious brunette at a resort-town Halloween party sparks his interest and then vanishes, he vows to finish what she started. It’s finding her that’s going to be the hard part.
He was her fantasy, and that’s all he could ever be.
Victoria Linden has reconstructed her life and soul from the devastation wrought by an abusive ex and her own failures. She desperately wants to be loved, but what man will agree to the control and limitations she needs in order to hold herself together? Especially a man like Curran, who’s used to getting whatever he wants. Walking away from him after a searing kiss is her only option.
When serendipity brings them together in the snowy mountains of Utah, will Victoria and Curran be able to mend the fences in their hearts, or will discovery and heartbreak tear them apart?
Mending Fences is a wonderful heartwarming book you curl up with when you want to escape into another world. Lucy was successful in making these characters believable, and getting you to care about not only the main couple but the secondary couple as well.
Curran Shaw gave up his high powered job as a CEO of his own company when living life in front of the social media got to be too much. He is happy living on his Utah Ranch, but he does get a tad bit lonely out there with just his sister and nephew. He goes out on Halloween because he can hide behind a mask, but when he sees the sexy woman dressed as Cleopatra he doesn’t wanna keep his distance from the crowd anymore. Well not the crowd so much he wants her!
Victoria Linden recognizes Curran from his voice, but she plays it cool. She decides she is going to go after one kiss, and then make her exit never expecting to see him again. When she agrees to house sit for some people, she has no idea that the house she is in is next door to the man that stirs her like no man has. She has some deep wounds to get over due to an abusive ex in her past. Can she let Curran past her walls? Also how will Curran react when he finds out she once had the one job he hates above all, a journalist, and that she interviewed him??
This is great story! I love that the fact that two of the characters had abusive past and that it wasn’t an easy thing for them to get over. The struggled with it like a real life person would have. It wasn’t glossed over in the least. I enjoyed the love story between Curran’s sister and his best friend as well. It is great when you can get two HEA’s in one book without either of them over powering each other. I recommend y’all reading this one!!
