The search for her birth mother brought Cora Kelly to the New Horizons Boys Ranch. Getting a job there was easy enough, but confiding in Aiyana, the ranch's owner, that she's really her daughter? Cora's not sure she can do that, not unless she's confident the news will be welcomed. And once she gets to know Elijah Turner—Aiyana's adopted son and ranch manager—that decision becomes even more difficult.
Although Elijah can't deny his deep attraction to Cora, he's always struggled with trust. Anyone with his past would, and there's something about the ranch's newest employee that isn't exactly as it seems. But if the feelings she awakes in his guarded heart are any indication, she might be just what he's long been waiting for.
An emotionally raw delve into the inner turmoil of an adoptee deciding to search for that missing part of themselves! The characters were well developed with detailed looks into what made each of them into the person you see in front of you as you unravel the story. I was invested from the first page and kept hoping for that happy ending. I can’t wait to see what’s to come in the future books of this series.
Cora Kelly loves her family and the life that they’ve blessed her with all of her life, but she has a burning desire to know more about her birth mother. Without her parent’s support, she sets out to find answers … and finally after many years, she has a start! It has brought her to the New Horizon’s Boys Ranch and a year-long job … a chance to get to know the owner Aiyana Turner … her mother. She doesn’t know if she will ever tell her who she is, or if she will even want to once she gets to know her … but she needs this chance at a connection.
Aiyana’s adopted son Elijah helps run the ranch, and even though it’s the last thing she needs to add to her plate, Cora can’t deny the intense draw and attraction she feels for him. He has a brutal past behind him and isn’t big on letting his guard down and trusting. Will she be the one to break through his walls?
