BookWhisperer's Rating: 

Jillian thought she was a city girl through and through; the fast cars, high fashion, and glamour—she loves it all. But when her ex tells her he’s having a baby with his new wife (after Jillian struggled for years to get pregnant), she hightails it back to Montana to cry on the shoulder of her best friend, Cara.

But in truth, Jillian would rather be comforted by someone else…specifically Zach, Cara’s brother-in-law. Zach is a veteran of the Iraq War who came back to the family ranch to raise his preteen son after the boy’s mother took off. He’s struggling to re-establish a relationship with his son, and warding off the demons of PTSD, which still haunt him. The last thing he needs is bold, brassy Jillian…but why can’t he keep his hands off her?

Falling for Jillian is, by far, my favorite book in this series.  I felt like Kristen Proby brought a whole heck of a lot more to the table in this book than I experienced with the others.  It wasn’t all about Jilly and Zach’s connection between each other, although that was pretty hot, but it contained more than just a love story. 

Jillian comes home from a horrible marriage with a few insecurities under her belt.  She is attracted to Zach but after the last time that they were together, she thinks that he doesn’t want her.  Boy, she was wrong.

Zach got out of a bad marriage as well; a marriage so bad that it put his adorable son, Seth, in danger and brought them both back home to the Lazy K.

So yes, you get lovely, dovey romance in this book but you also get two characters who try to work though their insecurities all while and stubble a few times before they get it right.

What I loved about this book:

  • Seth - he was such a wonderful character that brought out the best in Zach and Jilly. What he goes through brings this book into a more serious level than what the others had.
  • Thor, Seth’s dog – Adorable and I want him. 
  • How we still got to catch up on all of the characters that we fell in love with in the last two books. 
  • The ending…..oh, dear me, the ending.  So wonderful
