Blurb: Honky Tonk Hearts Series
Evie Caldwell hates her life. Five years ago, she gave up college and her dream of teaching to care for her ailing mother. Now, she's trapped taking care of her worthless brother and the family ranch. Waiting tables to earn her way out of Texas, the last thing she wants is a muscleman with a macho Marine attitude complicating her life. But, oh, how that man makes her insides melt.
Wounded vet Win Fairchild returns to Texas to heal, find a piece of his soul, and open a ranch for amputee children. Finding someone to love is not on his agenda. But when he starts work at the Lonesome Steer Honky Tonk, a spitfire with violet eyes and a major attitude instantly captures his heart.
Evie just wants to escape, but now that Win knows what he wants, can he convince Evie to stay in Texas—and his bed?
REVIEW:Two people meet, and are about to change each other's lives in ways they'd never imagined.
Those Violet Eyes begins with Win rolling into town. He's a man with many ghosts and fears, and he's a bit gruff, but once he meets and works with Evie, she learns to see past that. Win is amazing. He's soft on the inside, but it takes a lot for him to show that side of himself. He's a protector, he'll make sure that no one messes with those he cares about and loves. I was so drawn to Win. That man has gone through hell and back. Evie is the perfect woman for him.
Evie isn't without her own flaws though. She's stuck in a situation she hates, most people that don't know how call her cold and frgid. Her brother, a real jerk, emotional abuser, and did I mention jerk?- hangs things over her head all the time. She tries to make the best of it but what she really wants is an escape. In some ways, Evie acts like a doormat, but with Win's help and insight, she's ready to change that.
This is a powerful, emotional story that I could not put down. The attraction between Win and Evie is imminent from the start, and i loved reading about the ways the pair has helped and made things better for one another. They are a great balance.
Vonnie Davis is going to be known for well written stories that readers devour. I've added Ms. Davis to my auto buy list, ebcause I've come to know when I pick up a book with the name Vonnie Davis, that I'm going to read a beautiful love story filled with emotion, tortured heroes that find their ever lasting love, and strong heroines that will do anything for the man they love.
Those Violet Eyes is a contemporary romance you don't want to miss. I highly recommend it!
