Using humor and heartrending emotion, O’Keefe writes characters who leap off the page. Their flaws and foibles make for an emotional story filled with tension, redemption and laughter. While this novel is not a direct continuation of the first in the series, it makes the reading richer and more interesting to devour the books in order. Readers should keep their eyes peeled for the third book and make room on their keeper shelves for this sparkling fresh series.

Victoria, the penniless widow of a disgraced financier, is going to make a new life for herself and her son on the Texas ranch where she spent many unhappy childhood summers. Unfortunately, her new start ends Eli’s decades-long plan to recapture the ranch when she fires the stoic cowboy, hires his estranged mother and turns the ranch into a spa. As the two clash over the land, they fuel the passion that has simmered between them since they were teens. But to carve out their futures, they must let go of the past and accept each other as they are now. (BANTAM, Aug., 384 pp., $7.99)

A Must Read

Submitted by twocoulters on October 29, 2012 - 12:34pm.

Thanks to the publisher, Random House Publishing Group, and NetGalley for the chance to read this early!

Sharp dialogue, steamy scenes, and tension that will ensure the reader, me, experiences each emotion alongside the character – and oh boy are there some strong emotions.

Can't Hurry Love is the journey of two adversaries who discover it’s possible for two broken individuals to find love. Each has past insecurities that repeatedly interfere with the fragile happiness Eli and Victoria had found, they began to wonder if they can maintain a relationship; let alone trust each other to make a commitment…a must read book for 2012!

Ms. O’Keefe has written a story that entails everything a romance needs to ensure it is both an entertaining and enjoyable read. Even the secondary characters have depth; helping to drive the story forward – we get the story of Madelyn Cornish & Billy Wilkins next.
