Synopsis from Goodreads:

In the second book in the Love Under the Big Sky series from this USA TODAY bestselling author of the With Me in Seattle series, life in Montana gets spicy when a woman and her divorce lawyer sign off the papers—and sign on to love.

Now that his best friend, Josh, has happily settled down with his true love on a Montana ranch, small-town lawyer Ty Sullivan starts thinking that maybe single life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. And when Lauren Cunningham’s no-good ex-husband comes after her for an unexpected trust fund, Ty steps in to protect her. But soon he can’t help but think of her as more than a client. Lauren’s in no mood to jump into another relationship, so how can Ty convince her that her mistake wasn’t getting married, but marrying the wrong guy?

My Review:

This novel was delightfully well written. Proby combines the stereotypical elements of the genre with a great deal that is all her own. Reading about an author hearing about her own work was absolutely priceless. Proby also tackles some very hard hitting aspects of life in a very dramatic way, while all the while making it real for the reader. The fact that this story is so realistic and raw makes it all the more attractive.

This is such a personal story. You really get the nitty-gritty on the characters. I thoroughly appreciated how Proby went about flipping perspectives between the two main characters. She gives you an insight into both of their lives, both past and present. You also find out how they feel about the events that they’re living. At the same time, she doesn’t jump back and recap the same events over and over again. The story continues to progress forward, never looking back.

As a whole, this was a fast paced read that captured my heart and my attention. I will definitely be reading the next novel in the series.
