Description

New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak welcomes readers to the town of Silver Springs, where surprises wait around every corner! 

The search for her birth mother brought Cora Kelly to the New Horizons Boys Ranch. Getting a job there was easy enough, but confiding in Aiyana, the ranch's owner, that she's really her daughter? Cora's not sure she can do that, not unless she's confident the news will be welcomed. And once she gets to know Elijah Turner—Aiyana's adopted son and ranch manager—that decision becomes even more difficult. 

Although Elijah can't deny his deep attraction to Cora, he's always struggled with trust. Anyone with his past would, and there's something about the ranch's newest employee that isn't exactly as it seems. But if the feelings she awakes in his guarded heart are any indication, she might be just what he's long been waiting for.

    This first novel of a new series touched me in so many ways. It is warm, sensitive, and thoughtful. The many facets of caring about others were portrayed in a heartfelt way. I found this novel to be brilliant. The New Horizons Boys Ranch is just the right place for healing, not only for the troubled teenage boys between the age of 14-18 who board and attend school there, but also for the teachers and administrators of this magnificent place. The relationship between Cora and Eli is fun, witty, and playful, especially in the beginning. As they start trusting each other, their deeply wounded hearts may just start finding a way to mend. I am very much looking forward to the other other books that follow. What a fantastic story!

    This Is book one in the Silver Springs series and it features Cora Kelly and Elijah Turner. This is a story that began long ago with pain and betrayal and has morphed into a story of love and healing. The relationship between Cora and Eli quickly became something I wasn't expecting. And Matt? He was tremendously irritating! The whole situation with Aiyana was more dramatic than I thought it would be and over much too fast. Time flies by rather quickly while reading, which is what happens when you're deeply entrenched in a great story. I wish it lasted longer because I wanted more of Cora and Eli and the drama that surrounds them. I'm very excited to get to know the other characters and extremely curious to watch how the stories unfold in this new series.

    Cora Kelly knows she was adopted, and loves her life, but was always curious about her birth parents. Now as an adult she has decided to hire someone to help her investigate who they are. The search uncovers that Aiyana Turner, owner of the New Horizons Boys Ranch is her birth mom and they just happen to have a position for a new art teacher open. Cora applies and gets the job. Now she can interact with her birth mom. What she didn't expect to find was Aiyana's adopted son, Eli. Wow, these two were pure electricity together! HOT-HOT-HOT! Cora is first hesitant to start up anything with Eli because of who he is but she can't help herself. Eli doesn't tend to do relationships either but he is just drawn to Cora. I adored these two. They each provided something the other was missing in their lives. I loved how vulnerable Eli was in regards to Cora. For such a walled off type of guy, Cora quickly broke down that wall! As Cora and Eli continue their relationship, Cora gets to know Aiyana and really likes her. Just when things are going well, Cora's ex, Matt shows up to shake things up a bit. I really liked the honest discussion that Cora finally had with her parents....it was so heartfelt. Cora gets the best Christmas surprise from Eli and from there things get really interesting. I loved how the story ended. It was truly a perfect ending. Overall, I loved this book....read it in a day and a half because I couldn't put it down! Great start to this new series and I can't wait for the next book!

    Brenda Novak kicks off a new series with another fantastic read. I absolutely loved this book. Every little thing about it. Simply could not put it down. When Cora Kelly shows up at the New Horizons Boys Ranch, Elijah Turner has the feeling that there is more to why she's there than just a job. Never one to trust easily, Eli plans to keep an eye on Cora. Of course, no hardship there since she was very easy on the eyes. As time goes on the two get closer but Eli is more certain than ever Cora is up to something. Will she ever let her secrets out? Will those secrets tear Cora and Eli apart? I definitely recommend this one.
