Pilot B.J. Gilmore is Tommy Creek, Texas’s tough tomboy who loves to fly planes and gamble and doesn’t give a whip what anyone thinks or says about her…until Grady Rawlings steps into her life.


Heir to an oil dynasty, Grady has inner demons to battle. Ever since his wife and unborn child died two and half years ago, he’s developed a deep-seated hatred for sympathy and can’t handle anyone feeling sorry for him or treating him like some pitiful widower.


Grady hires B.J,'s plane service to fly him to Houston for an overnight business trip. While there, she coaxes him into accompanying her to a late dinner, where she decides it’s time for him to move on with his life. A month later, she turns up pregnant with his baby, and neither of them is prepared for the chaos that follows.


The moment I opened the document and began reading this amazing story I was hooked. B.J. has such a strong personality it would’ve been impossible not to fall in love with her immediately. I adored her no holds bar approach with Grady and how she found a way to break down his walls.

I don’t know why men think emotions are weakness. It was through Grady’s weakest moments I saw the level of the man he was. The strength he showed endeared me to him. I felt for them both as they learned how to give and take and cultivate a relationship which started off backwards, but like kismet it was right. The other characters really made me see the strength that family will supply to protect loved ones, the community, reminded me that nothing in a small town is private or forgotten.

This is one of the most heart melting reads I’ve read in a long time.
