A Country Girl’s Heart

I recommend it to all who are looking for a lesbian cowgirl romance!
I’ve quickly become a fan of Dena Blake. Each book I’ve read by her has gotten better and better. The back drop to this story is a ranch. Both Kat and DJ are good leads. I liked the romance aspect and was glad there wasn’t too much angst. Overall this was an enjoyable read and I recommend it to all who are looking for a lesbian cowgirl romance! – NetGalley Review

The love scenes were hot and the storyline is well written.
Blake loves to write about angst and drama, and this book is filled with it. The love scenes were hot and the storyline is well written. An Attorney and a rancher..Kat has lost the love of her life and has no intention of ever falling in love again, that is until DJ shows up at Jumpin’ J’s Ranch and show’s Kat exactly what she’s missing. The only problem is that Kat is unaware of the real reason for DJ showing up at the ranch but DJ’s initial intentions have changed since meeting the gorgeous and headstrong, Kat Jackson. – NetGalley Review

Dena Blake just goes from strength to strength.
My favourite book is still Unchained Memories but this book is a close second from Blake work’s.
Kat has lost the love of her life and has no intention of ever falling in love again, that is until DJ shows up at Jumpin’ J’s Ranch and shows Kat exactly what she’s missing. The only problem is that Kat is unaware of the real reason for DJ showing up at the ranch but DJ’s initial intentions have changed since meeting the gorgeous and headstrong, Kat Jackson.
This novel has a great amount of angst and is written with a fair few twists to keep you turning the page. I really enjoyed DJ’s character but Kat stole my heart from the beginning. Kat is Independent, headstrong and incredibly cautious of having her heart broken again. She’s got a horrible relationship with her family but still hasn’t let it harden her, in fact if anything has hardened Kat it was losing her wife, Arizona. There are these moments with DJ and Kat that made my heart melt and make me realise that sometimes the love of your life is the love of your life at that moment but isn’t your soul mate because DJ was Kat’s soul mate, 100%.
…Lastly, my favourite part of the whole book was the epilogue… just wait until you get to it. You, my dear reader, will love it. It gave me all of the feels but as you know, epilogues are my jam. – NetGalley Review

What a sweet refreshing new romance!
There was just enough angst, chemistry, and drama to keep the pages turning. The love scenes were hot and the storyline is well written. The characters are extremely likable and I would love to read more from this author. My students will enjoy this in our book group next month. I highly recommend.

This book is hard to put down!
This book is hard to put down! Good thing I started reading it on a free day. Because once I started I kept reading until finished. So much drama, intrigue and suspense…

A lot happens in this book. Not your usual women meets women and fall in love. No lack of angst and suspense in this one!.. – NetGalley Review

A heartfelt book about love and forgiveness.
Loved this book! DJ is a corporate attorney and Kat is recovering from the loss of her wife. The book weaves some complex storylines, but the characters depth of love, empathy, honesty and vulnerability are felt throughout the story. The supporting characters Rebecca and Virgil are hilarious. This is a heartfelt book about love and forgiveness. I highly recommend this book. – NetGalley Review

Where The Light Glows

“I’m still shocked this was Dena Blake’s first novel… It was fantastic… It was written extremely well and more than once I wondered if this was a true account of someone close to the author because it was really raw and realistic.
