Falling out of love with Colby Ryan wasn't working...

There hasn't been a woman who's held Colby Ryan's heart for long, not since his teenage love went awry twelve years ago. Now, all of a sudden, Dakota Jennings, his longtime family friend and trusted wrangler on the Circle R ranch, is catching his eye. For Dakota’s sake, Colby won't ever give in to the temptation she poses. 

Dakota has been secretly in love with Colby since the age of ten, but his sense of honor and the Texas code he lives by won’t allow her permanence in his heart. Up until this point, he’d never hinted at romance between them and yet, falling out of love with him just plain isn’t working.    

Colby has always protected Dakota, and he isn’t about to stop now. If he gives in to his desire, she stands to lose far too much. Colby doesn’t deserve her love, he's already ruined one life, but the binds that tie them are strong. Can Dakota be the woman to redeem his broken soul?

    Great western based romance. Character were easily accepted as real people with real hang ups. An enjoyable book.
  • Too angsty...

    I couldn’t finish this book. I don’t need to read about the sex scenes. Too much drawn out angst....

    this is the first book I read in the Forever Texans Series that I've read. Now I need to go back and read the fist 2 books and catch up. Each book in the series is a stand alone book BUT it is always nice to have the back stories and know all the neighbors and all. So let me share a little with ya about this book. I could not stop reading this book one I started... from the first page until the last... Charlene Sands is one of *those* authors who writes a story you simply can't stop reading. Dakota and Colby were childhood friends and later he is her boss but she has a huge crush on him. Little does she know but sees her as more but you know men.... could there but more to his reason to not going after more than friendship? I love reading a real life situation told so well in such a great book. Love this sweet romance and I think you will as well.

    This is a fantastic story of two people struggling to come to terms with their new feelings for each other while fearing they will lose the close friendship they have always had. Dakota and Cole have known each other for ever, Dakota has been in love with Cole for almost as long. She's finally ready to admit nothing will ever happen between them and start dating. This sends Cole into a tailspin of emotions. Thing is Colby has secrets. Secrets he needs to deal with in order to move on with Dakota. Will he lose Day for good when she finds out what kind of man he really is??? A heartwarming story I think everyone will enjoy. I highly recommend it.
