A secret child, love that conquers all, a rodeo star, cowboys, mystery, one incredibly cute puppy and a bunch of characters you'll love – STETSON'S STORM has it all.
After five years away from home, Stetson Scott is back in town. His father is dead, and he comes back with no intention to stay. But once he sees the state his ranch is in and hears from his sister that he left a lot more than simply a broken heart behind him all those years ago, he quickly changes his mind.
Storm McCrory was crazy in love with Stetson. But after he left in a hurry and never came back, she had to worry about more important things than just lost love. Storm was pregnant, abandoned by her father and shunned by most of the town. She's trying to make ends meet working the graveyard shift at the local diner, and do the best she can for her son Scotty. Seeing Stetson after so much time is not helping her at all. Especially when Stetson refuses to leave her and Scotty alone, and does his best to make up for all the time they lost.
What really impressed me, while I was reading this story, is how the characters are real and mature. No lying, hiding from each other, running away, or unnecessary drama in sight. They did their best to make it all work, and finally become a solid, loving family for their child.
Yes, there were times when I thought Storm is crying too much, but honestly I can't blame her for that, or the insecurities she's been reluctant to get over. If she was scared Stetson will leave once again, well she had a solid reason to believe that. It wasn't one of those instant 'forgive and forget' moments, which made me appreciate it even more.
This story is real. You can't help but think you'd act exactly the same way, if something similar happened to you. You'd have your doubts and fears, but love does find a way to melt your heart and turn you into a believer again. Storm and Stetson took their time to get to know each other again, convince themselves the love they feel is real, and become a team that can survive it all. Even the troubles surrounding them, those just keep coming and getting more and more serious.
If you love a good romance, be sure not to miss STETSON'S STORM. It's truly an incredible story that will make you laugh, cry and love every second of it.
Solid 4.5 star rating, rounded up to 5 because Scotty and Buck stole my heart the second I met them. I bet you'll feel exactly the same.
