Review: Against the Odds by J. Adams

Tired of dealing with an unfaithful husband after seven years of marriage, Raine Edmunds finally gets a divorce. Wanting to start over, she leaves her successful modeling career behind and goes to a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico to stay with her best friend. The ranch is the perfect place for her to take stock of her life and all she's accomplished.

Then Raine meets Hayden, her friend's brother-in-law, and the opposite of all the other men she has ever known. As their friendship blossoms, so does her love of ranch life. She discovers that what she wants most-what her heart truly desires-is right in front of her.

Everything about Raine and Hayden's love is against the odds. Now they must prove to each other and to themselves that no matter what trials assail them, their love will be strong enough to overcome any obstacle.

Against the Odds is a sweet romance. I really enjoyed that the relationship between Raine and Hayden came at a realistic pace, and that they were completely dedicated to each other.

The writing has such a unique feel. Almost like journal entries, but not quite. I felt like I really got to know Raine well, and I was very happy for her being brave enough to leave her familiar life behind to start fresh.

There's a mild swearword or two, and Raine and Hayden are very passionate, but nothing explicit. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel novelette, Still His Woman.
