Tara Rustle has just spent her twenty-third birthday alone, just like her last six birthdays. She arrives home from work to find her home burning to the ground. This event is the crux of Tara's grief for the mother she lost six years previously and the loneliness she has endured, and she snaps.
Tara wakes up in the arms of two sexy, masculine men, Clay and Johnny Morten, in the town of Slick Rock, Colorado, with no memory. She feels comfortable with the two men, so when they offer her a job cooking for them on their ranch, she accepts their offer. Little does she know the two men were once her childhood neighbors.
Tara's memory returns. Clay and Johnny set about seducing the one woman they have lusted after for years. Everything seems to be progressing nicely, until an old flame of Johnny and Clay's turns up. Celia is insane and threatens Tara's life.
Will Clay and Johnny get to Tara in time to save her from a crazy ex-lover? Or will Celia win and end Tara's life?

I've never been close to tears before on the opening of the book. In fact I had to put down my kindle before I could continue.
Tara Rustle has lost everything, her mother and her house where she lives. Broken and alone, she gets on a bus with what little cash she has and travels. Clay and Johnny Morten have never forgotten the girl/ woman who captured their heart. They are shocked when she collapses right in front of their truck. Tara has lost her memory and with it, she doesn't recall the betrayal she witnessed of the two men she fell in love with.
Against all odds, Clay and Johnny must show Tara not only that they love her and always have, but that they both want her for more than sex.
Becca Van has captured the hopelessness of Tara Rustle really well, it's almost as if you're with her in the moment of her pain. Anyway, an event transpires which takes her back to the place where she grew up, Slick Rock. Clay and Johnny Morten are two brothers from her past who hurt her badly but they don't know they even hurt her.
The characters were written really well and I love Clay and Johnny, the way they take her back in and love her with all of their hearts, but for me what I found to be a constant pain was Tara's ever changing erratic moods. I understand she has been through something traumatic but I thought this detracted a little from the story as everything else progressed nicely. However, I think this is a good book and Becca Van really captured me as a writer.
It is well worth the read.
