He's mine ... don't ever forget that.

Milo lives in the barn, a cowboy through and through.

I live in a castle, but I'm not a princess.


When the only person who loves me dies, Milo's there.

As I get older, I no longer look at Milo like a big brother. I look at him like the man God made just for me.


With the first glimpse of freedom from my pathetic excuse for a father, I imagine a future with Milo. I dream of the day when we won't have to hide our feelings


But Milo has a secret. He is not free. The man I love is marrying the woman I hate.

Indie + Milo

When she was four, Indie was 'adopted' by billionaire rancher Fletcher and his wife Ruthie. Indie was insanely loved by her new mom. But now Ruthie is dead and ten year old Indie doesn't know what will happen with her.
For now she's staying with Fletcher's main ranch guy Milo in his barn apartment.
Even at age ten Indie knows that she has a huge crush on Milo.
Fast forward some years and Milo is still her dream guy, but she's the bosses daughter, eight years younger and also ... he's kinda engaged ... to her idiot cousin - who is going to one day inherit everything!

What will happen with Indie + Milo?
Will we get a HEA?

That was ... so heartbreaking.
I think I cried all through the second half of the book!
Poor Indie and poor Milo!
They could've had the most amazing life together - in another dimension.
But Milo owes so much to Fletcher - what exactly he's not telling us yet.
And the whole arranged marriage thing - ugh. Those poor darlings.
But of course we'll fight for our happily ever after all through the book.

I really enjoyed reading this.
It was so sweet and cute and it could've been such an amazing ranch cowboy love story thingy. But of course that would've been too easy. We had to have this mega bad guy and all those other problems. Ugh. 🤣

Great book! I loved it!

Was it just me or where so many scenes somehow familiar? Especially in the beginning? I felt like I was reading a book where I already watched the movie. It was so weird at times. I could see some scenes so clearly in my head as if I had seen them on TV already. 🤔 And also. I think many readers won't like a couple of 'tropes' in the book. I think there will be lots of one star reviews because of that. I didn't like it either, but I'm okay with stuff as long as it takes us to a happy end. But I could've done without some things.

And I really want to see this as a Netflix show one day!

IF THIS IS LOVE was a beautiful + utterly heartbreaking love story. Run to your nearest book dealer for your own Milo - he'll be sold out in no time!

Jewel is a free-spirited romance junkie with a quirky sense of humor.

With 10 years of flossing lectures under her belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business.

After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the Contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing.

When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree at a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course…heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.
