Second chances were never more seductive than those in this brand-new Buckhorn novella…

The day April Kasper offered herself to Boone Barton is etched in her memory—for all the wrong reasons. He turned her down flat. Five years later the humiliation still stings, but April isn’t a naive kid anymore. Now that Boone is back in Buckhorn, she needs him to see that she’s older, wiser and over him. Or at least two out of three…

Back then, Boone was a bad boy—no question. But even he knew that sweet, smart April was off-limits. Now though, it’s an entirely different ball game. No matter how hard he’s tried to forget her, she’s plagued his dreams. So he’s back in Buckhorn to prove that letting her go was the biggest mistake of his life, and a wise man never repeats his mistakes…

 

Short, sassy and and oh so satisfying! Each year for her annual Reader Author Get Together event, Lori Foster adds a new novella to her beloved Buckhorn Brothers series with royalties going to benefit a charity. This year we have the pleasure of watching Boone return home and reunite with the one that got away. It’s a quick read full of snark and sass that gripped this reader’s heart quickly. Obviously we don’t get a huge amount of turmoil and strife in a novella length book, but the author manages to secure the likability of the characters easily and leaves us satisfied that they are on their way towards that happily ever. Highly recommend the series and especially this years contribution to it!

Five years ago teenage April Kasper laid her heart at Boone Barton’s feet and suffered the humiliation of outright rejection. Now that she’s heard he’s back in town, she’s still embarrassed over what happened and wishes she could show him that she’s grown up from that girl and no longer carries a torch for him.

Boone Barton wasn’t unaffected by April all those years ago and to tell you the truth, she’s never been far from his mind since he left town … but he knew he wasn’t sticking around Buckhorn back then, and he knew he was far from good enough for her. Now he’s back, he’s a changed man, and he’s going to put his heart on the line and see if she’s interested … if only she wasn’t still holding a grudge for his rejection!
