Wow. This book was a breath of fresh air.
Book Rating: Best of the Best
You can call me simple-minded all you want. I’m totally OK with it. I love books that are fun, chock-full of romantic tension and easy to get through in a few days. That’s what I call a perfect recipe for an Amber-friendly HCR. This book fit the bill!
I was hooked from the get-go and had a hard time putting it down. Hatcher’s characters really come to life to me—and they come to life very fast, so I enjoy them all the way through the book. That’s one of the main reasons I enjoy her stories so much.
WAGERED HEART was so dang cute. So dang cute!!
Bethany Silverton makes a wager with her friend Ingrid—betting she can get a certain handsome cowboy to come to church. But Bethany never expected to fall head-over-heals in love with him.
Hawk Chandler knows women are just trouble and will judge him about his heritage. He tries to stay away from them as much as possible, but Bethany is making that impossible. Try as he might, he can’t control his run-away feelings for her.
As much as I loved it, I must admit, this is one of those stories where I found myself shaking my book and yelling at the characters, “Communicate, you fools! Communicate!” All of their problems could have been easily resolved by simply telling one another how they felt. But no. They kept it all inside and made themselves completely miserable for almost the entire book. *teehee * But, that’s what makes it so stinkin’good!
Again, you could most likely finish this book in a day or two—even with several children and a husband vying for your attention at every spare moment. I’m talking from experience, here. *wink *
