Former Marine Jake Porter has far deeper scars than the one that marks his face. He struggles with symptoms of PTSD, lives a solitary life, and avoids relationships.
When Lyndie James, Jake’s childhood best friend, lands back in Holley, Texas, Jake cautiously hires her to exercise his Thoroughbreds. Lyndie is tender-hearted, fiercely determined, and afraid of nothing, just like she was as a child. Jake pairs her with Silver Leaf, a horse full of promise but lacking in results, hoping she can solve the mystery of the stallion’s reluctance to run.
Though Jake and Lyndie have grown into very different adults, the bond that existed during their childhood still ties them together. Against Jake’s will, Lyndie’s sparkling, optimistic personality begins to tear down the walls he’s built around his heart. A glimmer of the hope he’d thought he’d lost returns, but fears and regrets still plague him. Will Jake ever be able to love Lyndie like she deserves, or is his heart too shattered to mend?
So I’m continuing with featuring Becky Wade and here porter family series… this week it’s the 3rd in the series
Do you know I read this one about 2 years ago!!! And reviewed it??? So of course after I finished it the second time I had to go back and read my original review…and I loved the story this time just as much as the first time!
I think Jake Is my favorite Porter Brother….I guess I just love Mr. tall, dark and brooding! This book has some laugh out loud moments and some teary eyed moments….no major I want to strangle that character moments though, I mean at one point you will be a little mad, but it’s not that bad
