RESCUED BY THE FARMER
Her country hero...
Searching for a safe haven in the Kentucky hills, city girl Bekah Holloway encounters the unexpected -- a handsome country boy who offers her help. Drew Kinley gives her a job working with wounded animals, but on the run from an abusive boyfriend, Bekah needs more than employment. She needs a hero. Instinct tells Drew he's the perfect man for the skittish beauty. But he's spent a lifetime saving his family farm and now it's his turn to see the world outside of Oaks Crossing. As Bekah finds her forever home, will Drew leave...or stay and embrace a future together?
Oak Crossing: A small Kentucky town with a big heart
Woohoo -- back in Kentucky with the Kinley clan! This is the second book in the Oak's Crossing series. Four siblings get their chance at romance. Love the banter and teasing that comes from a close-knit family. And really enjoyed catching up with Mike and Lily (from the first book). Rescued by the Farmer reads well as a standalone though, and it is middle brother Drew's turn to have his life turned inside out by a female. There's so much that tickled me about this book.
My animal loving heart was in a constant state of flux over the rescue center setting. Puppies and baby goats and injured hawks...oh my! They captured my heart just as much as the hero did. But I'm fickle that way -- it's easy for cute critters to upstage even the most compelling hero in my eyes. No worries though, Drew got my attention, and, for the record, I trusted him way before Bekah did. But that's not her fault. She has plenty of reasons for being wary.
In fact, Bekah seems as fragile as some of the center's skittish animals. There are some interesting parallels there. And I think it's very fitting that Bekah finally breaks free from her past at a center dedicated to the healing and release of injured and orphaned animals.
Drew's relentless determination to break through her reserve plays an important role in Bekah's transformation. He's hard to resist -- a charming flirt with a compassionate heart. Tenuous friendship develops into sweet romance but not without complications! Gotta love those bumps in the road that keep a reader avidly turning pages.
A heartwarming romance that celebrates the joy of new beginnings.
