Tripp had a hard time understanding why his dad would believe the lies of his girlfriends’ daughter and not his own son. Not wanting to stick around anymore he left home at an early age and had to grow up quickly to survive.
Reggie, who had to follow her money hungry mom go from boyfriend to boyfriend, had only really wanted one thing in life. She just wanted to actually belong some where, to belong to a family.
After being away from home for 11 years Tripp returns home for his dad’s funeral. Even after all these years Tripp still holds a very bitter grudge against Reggie for breaking up his family. After all these years Reggie still believes she did the right thing by setting Tripp’s dad’s prized horse free but she feels terrible for putting a wedge between the two men. After the will is read to both Tripp and Reggie’s surprise there is an extra stipulation Tripp’s dad added. In order for the ranch to stay in the family and not given away, they must work together and bring back Mason’s Gold to the ranch. They both have to come to terms from mistakes from the past but what they both didn’t expect is the passion and also the friendship that grows on their journey.
What a truly enjoyable book. Both Tripp’s and Reggie’s struggles were clearly described. At first I really didn’t like Reggie, she was a bit too selfish for me but more into the book I got to understand her character more and I couldn’t help but hope for the best for both Reggie and Tripp.
