To feel ALL. THE. LOVE! You need this book in your life, so do yourself a favor and pick this book up. You can thank me later!

My Take:

(ARC Review) I adored this small town, enemy to lovers romance!

This is not a romcom in the traditional sense, rather it is a lighter hearted story full of humorous situations and plenty of banter (but it still might make you cry.) It has the lush language, strong characters, and poetic steam I’d expect from the author. Staci Hart has the most captivating writing style, her lyrical prose is unlike anything else out there and I want to live in her words.

Olivia returns to her childhood home after the passing of her grandfather, only to discover he’s left the dairy farm equally to her and Jake, the farm hand who’s worked there since he was sixteen. The farm is in deep financial trouble, and they’ll need to work together to save it, if they can stop arguing long enough.

Jake is extremely broody and guarded but for good reason. He knows the farm needs help to survive, but not from Olivia, who he’s convinced is a city girl who will leave as soon as she gets bored with the farm.

Olivia is the sunshine to Jake’s grump who always sees the positive in everything. She’s determined to save the farm, even if all the changes she makes means making Jake angry.

The banter between the two was hilarious as they struggled to adapt to their new situation, all while trying to ignore the spark between them. There’s also a bit of action and mystery thrown in to really make it a great story!

I enjoyed it from beginning to end and I know I will reread this often when I need something warm and funny to cheer me up


Olivia Brent has one summer to save the dairy farm she just inherited.

But there’s one problem, and it’s not her lactose intolerance.

Jake Milovic.

The brooding farmhand has inherited exactly fifty percent of Brent Farm, and he’s so convinced the city girl can’t work the land, he bets she can’t save it in a summer.

Determined to prove him wrong, Olivia accepts what might be the dumbest wager of her life.

His strategy to win seems simple: follow her around, shirtlessly distracting her between bouts of relentless taunting. And it’s effective—if his dark eyes and rare smiles aren’t enough to sidetrack her, the sweaty, rolling topography of the manbeast’s body would do the trick.

What they don’t know: they’ll have to weather more than each other.

Mysterious circumstances throw the farm into disarray, and with the dairy farm in danger, Olivia and Jake have to work together. But when they do, there’s more to fear than either of them imagined.

Because now their hearts are on the line, and the farm won’t be the only casualty if they fail.
