Catalina’s world has just been flipped upside down.
At least, that’s how it feels to her.
Instead of spending the summer on the beach, getting a tan, and shopping with her best friend before starting college in the fall, she’s just been told she’s spending it on a ranch.
In the middle of a one-horse town.
She thinks things might look up because there’s a sinfully hot guy with a sexy southern drawl and killer good looks at the ranch.
But of course, they don’t. Xavier and Catalina can’t stand each other.
Catalina is one hundred percent sure that this is going to be the worst summer of her life.
He sighed, dragging a hand through his already ruffled, blonde hair. “I would have taken the bullet for you,” he eventually muttered.
“Easy for you to say now, but you don’t even know me, Xavier. We’ve been dating all of one day, and now, you’re willing to take a bullet for me? Do you understand how insane you sound?” I crossed my arms over my chest to protect myself from the hurt and rage flickering across his face.
We were having our first fight.
“I care about you a hell of a lot, darlin’. Don’t dismiss my feeling for you. I’m a man of my word.” He reached his hand forward, but I pulled back. I would give in to his sweet words and charming drawl if I felt his touch.
“I think we’re moving too fast,” I blurted. “This is crazy.”
“I’m crazy about you,” he shrugged, “but yeah, we can slow things down. I understand, baby.” My gut twisted at the soft term of endearment aimed at me.
“I don’t want to fall in love with you only to have my heart broken by another person.” I looked away from him, finding more interest in the dirt road than his intense gaze. His thumb grazed my bottom lip, pulling my eyes back to him in a flash.
“You listen to me, darlin’. I ain’t gonna break that beautiful heart of yours; I ain’t a piece of scum. I’m a cowboy – we fall hard for our women, and we love ’em just as hard. We never let ’em go, you hear me?”
I nodded my head, taken aback by the conviction in his tone. He meant every word. He planned on falling in love with me. I was speechless. No one had ever been so straightforward with me before.
