Title: Once & Always

A sweet and easy read.
Once and Always is the first book I’ve read by Grace Brannigan. I was looking for a cowboy read, and this one story fit the bill. Tyler and Anna have a history. They haven’t seen each other for six years, and over that time a lot has changed…for both of them.
I thought for the most part the author did a good job with the story. Tyler was easy to love from the beginning. He was easy to relate to, and there were times when he spoke that I was close to swooning.
Anna was a little more difficult. She had a lot of issues, and even more than Tyler sometimes, she didn’t seem to be able to let go of the past. It was frustrating.
Overall, I liked the book, and I will probably read more from this author in the future. There were a few editing issues, though nothing too major. My big pet peeve with the book was that there were a couple times when Anna was explaining something to Tyler, but because it was something that his character should have already known, it felt more as if the author was trying to force feed the information to the reader. I felt the author could have got her point across by either having Anna explain the information to someone not familiar with ranching, or she could have left it out altogether as I didn’t feel the terminology really added to the story.
