About Forever You and Me
Marianne Macintosh wants nothing more than to leave her sleepy little town and start her life for real. Trapped by her need to help her parents and their struggling ranch, she is pretty sure she’ll be stuck forever until a handsome stranger breaks down on the edge of town and bids on her in a date auction. He might just be her ticket out of Rockwell.
Lucas Hawthorne has been on the road for three years, trying to run from a past that is always right on his heels. Though he knows he can’t stay in Rockwell, there is one compelling reason not to continue on his way: Marianne. He can sense something special about her, and the helping instinct in him tells him she isn’t as happy as she seems.
Lucas and Marianne are pulled together by a stronger connection than either of them have felt before, and though they are both falling fast, Lucas has a secret he can’t—won’t—share because he knows it will ruin everything.
Marianne hopes he will eventually trust her with his past, because she knows it just like he does: they’re meant to be together for the rest of their lives.
I enjoyed this book so much! Dana LeCheminant did such a great job with her characters and the plot. I loved the setting as well. It was almost as though I was there on Marianne’s ranch with her.
One thing about Marianne was that she really wanted nothing to do with Lucas. She didn’t trust him. And that was kind of his fault for the way he acted when she first met him broken down at the end of her family’s ranch. But even as she got to know him, she didn’t want to trust him.
Lucas didn’t feel like he was the kind of guy who was trustworthy either. He needed somewhere to stay, because his car wasn’t fixable. But he had no money. I loved the way Marianne’s family took him in and cared for him when he had no one. He tried to repay them by helping out at the festival. And that back fired on him. That scene was one of my favorites. The big thing with Lucas was his past. He had a lot of secrets and they eventually came back to hurt him.
This book is a great start to a new series by this author. I can’t wait to read more!
I was sent an e-copy of Forever You and Me as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
