After five long years, Georgiana McLaughlin returns to the only place she’s ever considered home—the same place she stole a kiss from Ridge Carson under the community “kissing tree.” But this time he’s a man, and reconciling their past is just the beginning. You’ll find yourself applauding each new chapter filled with fun, romance, and adventure in this captivating, heartfelt tale of love, friendship, and finding your way back.
What an absolutely beautifully written love story. I had fallen in love with the characters right from the beginning.
The book opens with Georgie and Ridge under “The Kissing Tree” with Georgie trying to take Samantha up on her dare. To steal a kiss from Ridge. Georgie keeps playing through her mind how she is going to accomplish this task, but ends up just going for it.
“There you have it, Ridge Carson.” She beamed down at him, proud she hadn’t lost her nerve. “I’ve stolen a kiss and you can never have it back!”
That was the last time that Georgie would get to see Ridge. Her family left for NYC that very same evening. Flash forward five years and Georgie is on her way home again. She is coming home to help her grandpa after the passing of her grandmother. It will be the first time that she has seen her home since she had left so many years ago. Beside her grandpa, of course, whom do you think is the first person she runs into…but, Ridge! This makes for a very entertaining scene especially since he is such a teaser!
The setting for this book was interesting. I loved that it reminded me of the old wild west and Little House on the Prairie. LOL … With horse and buggies, living on the cattle ranch and the fact that the women wore corsets.
There was a bit of a love triangle at work here. Georgie had a fella waitin on her back in NYC. She was torn over her feelings between Dawson and Ridge. She had never promised Dawson her hand in marriage, but felt obligated to him. The feelings she had for Ridge just could not be denied and she struggled daily.
The book left me with a storybook ending and I felt it was perfect! I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good romance. I cannot really categorize this as YA, for it was about adults. But, it was tender, sweet and innocent with mild passionate kisses:)
“I remember all your kisses Ridge, even the one I stole.” Her heart fluttered dangerously as he smiled his crooked smile.
“Not like you’ll remember this one,” he promised.
