Carly Morrison is a cowgirl, who loves to ride and rope with the best of them but her father wants her to settle down, and has put up an ultimatum. Carly must get married within 2 weeks or her father will sell the ranch that she loves. When a man volunteers to be her husbands, she thinks that he has lost his mind, but this is her chance to save the ranch, so she agrees to marry him, but on her terms.
Sawyer Gallagher hears about her problem and volunteers to be her husband. He and his sister have recently lost their parents, and Sawyer has been struggling to be both brother and parent to his sister, Jill, and to give her a stable home life.
Carly's father is a big boisterous man, he and Carly have been working the ranch together for years, but he knows that his days of work are numbered which is why he thinks that she needs a husband to help her, but his methods are questionable. He loves his daughter and is scared about her life after he is gone, but I did think that he could have found a better way to help her find a husband. I like how he connects with Jill and instantly accepts her as a granddaughter.
Sawyer is a man of his word, he is a hardworker, he is shy and used to keeping to himself, but Carly really draws him out and helps him to find balance with his sister, as her brother and parent figure. He is a skeptic about love at first, but I like how he changes his mind over the course of the book.
Carly is great with Jill, and helps her to adjust to her new life and grieve properly for her parents. I like how she brings out the best in those around her.
There is good interaction between Carly and Sawyer, and even though they are very different, they are also very much alike, with similar fears of failure. I like that they are both strong and independent people, and how this unlikely situation brings them together.
