Meant to Be by Maggie McGinnis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Hailed by Christie Craig as “a witty new voice in contemporary romance,” Maggie McGinnis takes readers back to Montana’s sexiest dude ranch, where anyone can start over, and falling in love is just a beautiful twist of fate.
At twenty-eight, Shelby Quinn’s already a has-been. Scooped off a country stage at sixteen and remolded into glittery pop princess Tara Gibson, she toured the country for a decade, playing to sold-out stadiums while slowly losing her soul. Now her sales are waning, and when her beloved father dies in a fiery plane crash, she finally comes apart at the seams. Alone and brokenhearted, she hides away at Whisper Creek Ranch, never expecting to meet a man who understands her in a way no one else ever has.
Cooper Davis was one of Boston’s top detectives—until a bogus investigation cost him his badge, his family, and almost his life. Now he’s wrangling horses and guests at Whisper Creek Ranch, while keeping one eye firmly on a super-secret VIP holed up in a private cabin—a beautiful, soulful singer who knows what it’s like to lose everything. Cooper and Shelby both have ample reason to guard their hearts. But if they can learn to trust each other, something magical awaits them under the big skies and bright stars.
My favorite books are books about ranchers or just cowboys!! It's something about the visual you get. Yummy!! I sincerely liked this book. I thought that it had just the right amount of heat because I didn't want wham bam thank you, ma'am. Call me crazy but there's too much of that in today's books and not enough plot. I'm always preaching about a good plot and this had it. It had fully developed characters that both had their problems and were working them out. Of course, you're not going to jump into the sack to fix your problems in real life - at least I hope you're not!! This book, to me, had it all and a great epilogue to boot. So if you're looking for a great weekend read with a hot cowboy (who used to have and use handcuffs in his old life) this is the book for you! That's a great visual, don't ya think? Pick this book up as soon as it comes out because you won't be disappointed. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone but I'd read all of the ones before just for the pleasure of them.
I was given a copy of this ARC from the publisher on NetGalley for an honest review. All of the above comments are my express opinions and no one else's.
