Cade Jenkins had to give up his whole life at only twenty-five years old. After his parents’ sudden death, he became the guardian of two younger brothers and was responsible for a large California ranch, putting his dreams of a professional surfing championship on hold indefinitely. Years later, he still feels responsible for keeping the ranch running and his brothers in line. When his brothers want to ride the ranch wave of the future—organic ranching—Cade can’t seem to move forward without feeling like he’s forgetting his past.

Organic consultant Nina Cline values her independence just slightly above the environment. She will never again be beholden to a man for her happiness. Meeting Cade in a bar was only a bit of fun for the night, but when he turns up at the ranch as her next client, the sparks begin flying thanks to their opposing outlooks. Cade becomes Nina’s biggest stumbling block. He not only wants to resist every change Nina suggests for the ranch, but she’s also in danger of losing her heart to him.

Cade’s Loss is a remarkable story about family, love, and letting go of the past. It’s a wonderful start to the California Cowboys series, drawing the reader in to the entire Jenkins family even though it’s a standalone book. And what could be sexier than a surfing cowboy with a tortured soul?

Cade’s personality made him easy to love right off the bat. He was a family man through and through, but he’d yet to realize his love for his family had become misguided. He still saw his brothers as needing guidance when they were not only capable of taking care of themselves but also more than qualified to run the ranch.

Nina was a strong woman who had been burned in her career by a man and wasn’t willing to let it happen a second time. Her strong convictions toward herself and the environment made her an endearing character, and her relationship with Cade made her a better person. The relationship between the characters occurred at a natural pace, with plenty of time to actually get to know the other person before falling in love.

The Jenkins brothers were an intriguing family, and I felt connected to the secondary characters and am looking forward to the rest of this series to read more about them.

Cade Jenkins is a study in loss. At twenty-five he lost his parents, his dreams, and his career on the pro surfing circuit. He gained guardianship of his two younger brothers, responsibility for an entire ranch, and a life without love.

Nina Cline is on the mend. Her cheating fiance is in the rear view, and she’s concentrating on her job as an organic certification consultant. Now that she’s gained her independence, Nina will never make the mistake of giving it away again. Especially to some anonymous hookup she meets at a beachside bar…no matter how good he looks in the water. Then she meets her newest Big Sur client and realizes that the beach bum that curled her toes is her new boss—and he thinks “organic” is a dirty word.

As tensions, tempers, and chemistry reach a boiling point at the ranch, these two heartbroken souls will need to decide if they’re willing to take a chance again, or let the love of a lifetime slip away with the tide.

The first time Adeline Ivey danced into my life, high on ecstasy instead of life, was at the party before the kickoff of our seventh tour. I spotted her out on the lawn, a gorgeous girl spinning around in circles with her arms wide and a big smile directed at the Los Angeles sky.

We shared an insane summer on the road, surrounded by sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll—a combination that could only end in disaster.

That was ten years ago. The world has forgotten Lincoln Hayes, rock god and guitarist in Path of Destruction. As the date of my parole hearing approaches, I’m nothing but a number in the system of the Michigan Department of Corrections. And as much as I want to forget the events of that summer and move on, the girl I can’t get out of my head is trying to make an encore appearance in my life.

Topher Leigh may be a rock star bass player, but he’s not what anyone would expect. His inability to experience feelings and his propensity for saying what’s on his mind set him apart. His brother and best friend do their best to protect Topher and keep him safe, but when Rachel enters his life, everything changes. Topher has only been able to feel in his dreams, until Rachel.

Rachel Wilson’s sister has warned her that getting involved with Topher can’t lead to anything good. He’s a sweet guy, but there’s no future for them since Rachel needs to return to school to finish her veterinary degree. Besides, Topher isn’t capable of being a boyfriend, husband, or a father. Except maybe the people who know him the best don’t really understand him at all.

Dreaming of Rhapsody is a novella in the Rhapsody series and can comfortably be read as a standalone story. The series focuses on the rock stars in the band Rhapsody, with Topher in the spotlight of this book. The fact Topher was so different than a typical rock star sets this story apart from all the others. It’s a sweet story about never underestimating someone’s abilities.

Topher was a well-developed character with lots of idiosyncrasies. In some ways he was extremely naïve, but in others he was more knowledgeable than he was given credit for. With the story told partially from his point of view, the reader got a first-hand look at his frustration and the way he saw the world. I especially enjoyed when he described how everything had beats and colors and patterns.

Rachel was a perfect match for Topher, and their growing relationship was fun to watch. Like Topher’s brother and best friend, Rachel needed to learn to trust him to make decisions for himself. She also needed to learn that it was okay to go after what she really wanted.

This was a wonderful addition to Ms. Lawrence’s catalog of stories. I truly enjoy her writing each and every time.
