West, a venture capitalist, has paid for his wealth and success with long hours at the office and no personal life to speak of. Meetings, conference calls, and paperwork dominate his waking hours and have kept him from honoring the promise he made to his late grandfather years before.
After leaving the Marines, Rush returns to his hometown and settled in as a Christmas Tree farmer. His life is quiet and simple, and he likes it that way. When West arrives in town and buys Rush’s parent’s vineyard on a whim, that simple life is turned upside down. The animosity between them is palpable, but Rush shelves his preconceived notions in order to protect his parents’ legacy. He agrees to help West learn how to run the vineyard, and Rush soon realizes that love doesn’t necessarily come in the package he expected.
The one thing I most noticed about these two MC’s was they are both very quick to make decisions and then both quick to change their minds. Talk about book whip lash.
We’ve got West, he’s never really gotten over his Grandfathers death, and if you go deeper probably never over his parents either. Instead of allowing himself to grieve, he throws himself into work. Until one day, bam! he decides today’s the day he drives to release he’s Grandfathers ashes.
Rush, also dealing, or not dealing with a death of a loved one. Has moved back to his tiny home town and started a tree farm. Where he plans to live alone the rest of his life.
Both of these guys have there lives turned up side down when they meet and re meet each other. Even though, they can’t see the connection, we certainly can. And it’s great. Watching them go from necessary evil to friends to lovers to can’t live with out is amazing trip. Even with the whip lash.
