Reading Challenge 2023

Way back when, Hunter Boone thought he and Josie Stephens had something that would last forever. Then she got her ticket out of town and took off—alone. The hurt nearly tore him apart. By the time Josie realized she'd made a mistake, Hunter had already married.

Now Josie's back in Stonewall Crossing, and while instant fire flares between them, she can't come between the now single dad and his son. As the whole town gets ready for Christmas, Josie finds it hard to avoid Hunter. No matter how much he tempts her with the promise of a future together, she has to tell herself—for her own survival—that relationships just aren't her thing…
Sasha Summers is a newer author for me and she's one I've been really enjoying. I've been busy reading her backlist but have been very bad at reviewing them. I'm working on that though. I really enjoyed A Cowboy's Christmas Reunion. It's a wonderful story with a lot of good things that happened in it and someone not so good. 

Josie and Hunter and meant to be together. Sadly, the troubles in their past really carried on for them. Neither could have a lasting relationship. It is sometimes hard to find a new person when you love someone so much and can't have them. 

So much happens in the story. You'll enjoy how hard Hunter works to get Josie back. The only thing besides themselves that get in the way is Hunter's son and ex-wife. So much happens there. At times I wasn't happy how the son acted. But then I remembered he was kid and that if adults can make big mistakes even with knowing better, we can't except a kid not to. 

What Hunter's son did to Josie was wrong on so many levels but wasn't really shocking. He was afraid that she would take his dad away and he really wanted his parents together. All this didn't help with his horrible mother. But that's the great thing about growth. We learn from our mistakes and try to be better. 

For both Josie and Hunter this wasn't a easy ride. They had so much they needed to work out before they could come together and just love each other. At times this isn't an easy read but one worth reading.
