Impossible: Laurel Ulen Curtis

Add to Goodreads      Buy Amazon/B&N

One Accident. Two losses. Three years.

Veronica Russo chases storms, but runs from her past by staying firmly in the present. Unwilling to consider the possibility of a future, she’s checked out of life by using solitude and standoffishness as her armor and a sharp tongue and quick wit as her weapons.

Coleman Cade is a walking contradiction- just like his mismatched eyes. A rough and manly bull rider with a playful side. A ladies man with thousands of willing victims, but what he really wants is one woman. The right woman.

Will Roni be able to let go, move on, and find a way to fulfill her dream of having everything? Or will unsubstantiated choices and unresolved demons stand in the way of their happily ever after?

In order to overcome past tragedies and find true happiness- in order to have Everything- Roni needs to do one thing. Find the impossible.

First of all, let's just all take this opportunity to drool over this gorgeous cover. That man is a perfect Coleman Cade. Fans Self! Holy Shitdizzle!(yes, that is a new word I learned in this book).

We got a little taste of Coleman Cade in The One Girl. He was Tucker's cocky, flirty, bull riding friend. But that did not prepare me for the full Coleman Cade experience. Oh my...

"Finding the right woman is a lot like ridin' a bull. You'll know in a little over eight seconds whether they're worth a second ride or not. And, as you know, the best ones usually buck you off a few time before givin' you the ride of your life."

But, Let's start back in the beginning of this story. Roni has been though a horrible tragedy. She now spends her time alone as a meteorologist, travelling, and chasing storms. She is hiding from everyone including herself. She has no desire to open up or care about anyone since it is just easier that way. 

One day in an odd twist of fate, she meets a teenage boy, CJ, that she has an immediate connection with. Before she knows it, she is drawn a little into his world and that means also into the life of his dad, Coleman Cade. I knew Cade was sexy, flirty, and dripping in charisma from the previous book. But in this one, I swear I could literally feel him staring at me with his one blue and one green eye and I thought my kindle would start smoking. This man is seriously magnetic and swoon worthy. He is hot, funny, bossy, challenging, determined, caring, and down right intoxicating. 

Shitdizzle. I did. I liked it. So help me, but he was one of those endearing assholes. The ones you loved to hate and hated to love, all at the same time. 

For such a strong, physically intimidating guy, he was so freaking soft. So playful, so generous with affection. So everything I wanted. And everything I didn't think I could handle. 

And most importantly he can see right through her. He(and his family) have the uncanny ability to see past her tough facade. He gets her immediately and can see she has walls up and is a runner. He not only takes that as a challenge, but also makes it his mission to wear her down. He is not going to let her get away with anything. 

"You're like a Banty Rooster, sweetheart. Tiny little thing, but you don't hesitate to puff your chest, lookin' for a fight."

"Banty. Only thing you do more than fight, is run. I've been waitin' for it all day, and if you felt that kiss even a quarter of how much I felt it, I'm surprised you're not already gone."

I found myself laughing out loud at some of the things he said and his antics. This man just warmed my heart. His persistence, patience, capacity to love his family, and his vulnerability under his outward persona were so endearing. Their love story was tentative and fragile, but beautiful. It was not easy or perfect and they had issues with communication and secrets. But I loved them together. And I adored how Coleman's son and mother felt the same connection to Roni as he did and welcomed her into their lives. They were funny, supportive, and truly important to the story as well. 

And of course, there had to be challenges and dramas. I got nervous, tense, frustrated, and my heart hurt for them. There were twists I did not see coming and by the time it got near the end, I was so invested in these characters that I was holding my breath. And I would love to thank Laurel for giving not only giving an epilogue, but also a bonus scene in Coleman's point of view...sigh...Yes, Coleman Cade is my new book boyfriend and I am not afraid to admit it. I have already claimed him. And only second to my love for Coleman, is my love for his son CJ. He is a heartbreaker in his own right and I am so looking forward to a book about him in the future. 

This book made me laugh, swoon, tear up, and  fall in love with an entire family. Laurel Ulen Curtis has a wonderful ability to create hot, bossy alpha men with a soft side, strong women that are likable despite flaws, and connections that are intense, passionate, heartfelt, and sweet. This is an engaging story of learning to live, second chances, and hope.

Thanks to Laurel Ulen Curtis for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
