Book Description:
There’s tortured. And there’s Garth Black.
His life has been a constant carousel of tragedy and disappointment, including his love life. Of course, applying the term “love” to Garth’s conquests is a gross misuse of the word. Some people were made to give and accept love, and others weren’t. Garth Black redefines the “others” category. He’s made a vow that the day he meets a woman who could sucker him into falling in love will be the day he runs away.
Garth’s plan has one flaw. What happens when he’s already fallen hard for a girl before the warning signs and red flags go up? What happens when the love he’s avoided his entire life brings him to his knees? What happens when Garth Black lets the dirtiest four letter word he’s ever known into his dark, lonely life?
This cowboy’s about to find out he can control some things, and he can’t control others. Number one on the what he can’t control list?
Love.

My Review...

I fell in love with Garth in the last two books of this series and I was so happy to hear Garth' story.

But I was quickly saddened to hear about Garth's past upbringing and the reason for his truth telling protective mechanism. (AKA him being an asshole which is one of the reasons I totally love him)

His love for Josie is heartbreaking.

Wee Garth fell in love with Josie as a kid but didn't want to bring her down.  

He had a few slips with his emotions getting the best of him but he was determined to not bring anyone down with him.  
 "You're not swimming in glory until you find someone to swim with you. Glory isn't glory if you don't have someone to share it with. It's just pride and bullshit on your own."
But Josie is a stubborn thing and knows Garth deserves love and happiness.

Finally Garth givens in to his hearts want.
I wouldn't hurt Josie any more than I already had. She deserved better, and she deserved a million times better than I could ever give her.
"...I'm not asking you to trust me with your life or your heart or your love yet.  I am asking you for a chance to prove myself worthy of earning those things.  If you can give me that, then let's take it slow and see where this whole thing goes.  Inch by inch, day by day..."
Things are looking up only for Josie's douche bag of a father steps in and puts Garth's fears to reality.  

So he does what he does best and that is run. His intentions are honorable but they both have their heartbroken until Rowan comes in and shakes some sense into Garth and realize what he has to lose.

True love is a powerful thing and there is no right or wrong to love. It is what it is.

I LOVE Garth.  I love his vulnerability and his huge heart.  Josie and Garth make the perfect pair and finally Garth gets the love he so deserves.
"You have no idea how much good you've done to save me, Josie Gibson. Don't you ever doubt that."

"I love you, Joze. I love you so fucking much. Yeah, I realize saying fuck while confessing one's love probably isn't romantic - "
I love this series! We also get to see the Jesse I love and adore in this installment as well. *Sigh*

For Garth he deserves a 4.5 Garth Black loving Thumbs up!
