About the Book:
Secrets are little time-bombs just waiting to explode. 

After six years and too much self-recrimination, rancher Mitch Landry is ready to admit he was wrong. He’d been in love with Olivia Montgomery but he hadn’t been ready for the lifetime commitment. That was his first mistake. He’s divorced his second. He’ll not make the same mistake twice and he’ll do whatever it take to convince Olivia to give them a second chance.

Through hard work, determination and more than a few tears, Olivia Montgomery survived the break-up with the love of her life. She’s rebuilt her life around her business and the son she loves more than life itself. She’s not proud of the mistakes she’s made—particularly the secret she’s kept—but when life serves up manure, you use it to mold yourself into something better. 

At a hot, muggy Dallas wedding, they reconnect. Olivia’s first instinct is to play it cool, but after one devastating kiss things quickly flare out of control. A quick night together should dampen those flames but instead only feeds the fires burning and now she’s left trying to protect the secret she’s held on to for all these years.

My Review:
I picked up the free prequel, which was only about 33 pages... but WOW!  How did I get sucked in to those 33 pages?  I couldn't wait to start reading Book 1.  I immediately liked these characters! Mitch is a steamy hot cowboy (fanning self) who finds himself drawn to pretty, sexy Olivia.  Find out how they meet and how they part in the prequel.  It was a love that was meant to be that crashed in heartbreak. Then move ahead, six years later, and find that chemistry explode once again in Book #1 of Texas Two Step. So much has happened over the past six years.  After Mitch's brother James dies, Mitch feels obligated to marry James' pregnant girlfriend.  And Olivia marries Drake.  Both marriages fail, possibly because they were not meant to be.  True love sparks between Mitch and Olivia, but will secrets split them apart once again? You will have to read this to find out!
