K-Lee Klein brings us some messed up main characters in this book. Brett is a broken man, broken to the point where the life has left his eyes and he finds solace in the bottle at night. JT is a nice young man that comes from a privileged upbringing if you consider the monetary side of it, if you consider the emotional side I guess you could say he was abused. The supporting characters are some of the best. The way the Author integrates them in to the story is brilliant. First up we have Ray the Foreman of the ranch, he is your typical gruff foreman with a huge heart. The other character is Millie who is Brett’s Mother, you are going to Love her, she is feisty, she says what is on her mind and she is manipulative. She is really the strength that holds our characters together. There is one more character that deserves a mention and is the reason that Brett is such a mess, this happens to be Walt. Now the thing with Walt is, well he is dead. Now don’t start thinking that this book is going to turn in to a Paranormal read, it isn’t. Walt is only a ghost in Brett’s head.
It took me a little while to get going on the story, I would say about 8% into it on my Kindle before I really got a grasp for it and wanted to continue. PLEASE, if this happens to you push on and I don’t think you will be disappointed. This is when the book grabbed me and held on to me until the end.
This is the first book that I have read by K-Lee Klein and I read it on her recommendation. She does a brilliant job of telling this story. Like I said before, Brett is pretty messed up and broken, the author slowly brings him back to life with the help of the other characters, mostly JT. JT is also a city boy and was picked up on the side of the road by Millie. Millie being Millie decides that JT needs to go to the Sharp T Ranch with Brett. Just going to say it, she was being a matchmaker. I’m really not going to say much more on the story, I don’t want to give anything away. I will warn you that you never will know what is going to happen when you turn that next page. A little funny; I was tweeting with K-Lee and I told her that “I am so mad at Brett right now”. Her writing style can bring out your emotions.
I think this book was brilliantly written, the story is fresh and the writing really brought the reader (me) into it. I am so glad that K-Lee recommended this to me. What can I say a Good Book makes me feel Good and I feel Great after reading this.
