They say you can never go home again. Tyler Weston is hoping that's not true. Two years ago he thought he wanted freedom and to be as far away from Sweet Meadow, Texas as he could get. He left behind his family's ranch, his brothers and his childhood sweetheart, Beth Sampson. Now he's home for the holidays, but he's hoping to make it a permanent move. Will he be able to mend the hurts he's caused especially with Beth or has she grown up and gotten completely over him? Beth Sampson thought her world was ending when Tyler left her. He didn't even have the decency to face her and break up, he just left with no word. Its taken her this long to even begin to think about living again and now he's back for the holidays. Her only defense is to pretend indifference until he leaves again. The holidays can't go by fast enough for her. She needs him out of sight before she makes a complete fool of herself. What kind of woman loves a man who leaves like that?Tyler and Beth grew up together and were each other's first and only love. They even had the same dreams for the future. Until one day they didn't.
Tyler had to get away from the small town life where everyone knew your business and try to make it on his own. So Tyler sets off on the road for bigger and better leaving Beth behind with only a note. A year and a half later, he's back in town and still in love with Beth.
The Cowboy Comes Home takes you on a journey of two life-long lovers trying to find their way back to each other. At first I started out being upset with Tyler for the way he left Beth, but after learning more about him and getting his side of the story, I started to soften toward him. I was really looking forward to them working it out and getting their happily ever after.
This was a steamy read, but not overly so. It is the first book I've read by Roni Adams, but I look forward to reading more by her.
