"Everybody Lies" 

My name is Jessalyn Stratton. I've been riding the rodeo circuit since I was seventeen. Now, I'm a twenty-six year old wash-out, a has-been with a fake knee who's never really dated and never had a boyfriend. Then I stumbled across a personal ad on the Internet. 

Zack Boudreaux is a twenty-seven year old single dad living and working on his family's ranch in Texas. He's looking for the woman of his dreams and thinks he might have found it in me. 

I should be riding off into the sunset, living my Happily Ever After. Except after months of emailing each other and sharing secrets I'd never told a living soul, I still had one last secret to tell. 

Opening up to Zack was easy. Telling the truth could change everything. 

Warning: this story contains a mail-order bride, sort of, a couple of secret babies (or 3), lots of hot cowboys and (a butt-ton of family) drama.

But didn't the blurb say that she started since 17 and is 26 now? That's not 13 years

Hi, I just checked iTunes and it's not available yet.  Any idea when it will be?

Wow. I'd really like to know more about Jessa's dad and why he's treating her like that. Sad. 
                              Also pretty intrigued by Kane. Dark, handsome characters with a lot of loyalty are just up my alley :-)
                              I also really like how Jace and Jessa's relationship has developed; at least they have each other :-)

I like this too :-) I think this clearly illustrates how strong Jessa's character is---how she's willing to accept and make the best of a situation

Maybe inserting 'it would be' before 'slate gray' might go smoother? :-)

Her relationship, or lack thereof, with her father is heartbreaking.  But she is a toughie!
