Morrow’s Horizon by Sierra Kummings
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Blood, and love for a special little girl, bind the five Morrow sisters in an unbreakable way. Yet the family-devoted Sara Morrow yearns for more.
And that “more” looks a lot like the irresistible Jacob Ramírez.
For years, Sara’s contented herself with toe-curling fantasies about the CFO of the bank that employs her – all the while promising herself she’d never fall for the type of passion that destroyed her parent’s marriage. But when the one and only Latin six-foot-four god accepts her offer of help and turns her fantasies into reality, she’s forced to decide if it’s worth finding out if her boss is everything she’s dreamed of, or just the manifestation of all her fears.
Jacob has his own set of fears. Right out of high school, he joined the Marines, only to come home six years later with night terrors that haunt even his days. Now, at thirty-three, rudimentary techniques keep his secret hidden.
Until a chance meeting with Sara Morrow coincides with a deception that rocks him to his core.
When Sara’s faith is tested, her sisters’ love gives her the courage to believe in someone else. When Jacob’s is tested, he has to learn how to believe in himself.

Review:

Morrow’s Horizon had the perfect storm for emotional wreckage but for some reason I remained on dry land.   The book is long one and I often found myself skimming parts and getting easily distracted from the book.  I love being able to immerse myself into a story and I just wasn’t able to do that here.  As a debut, it’s definitely a solid book—the characters were intriguing and a good premise.  It just fell short for me. 

Sara is sweet, a do-gooder and reserved when it comes to men but she’s been drooling over the CFO’s picture for weeks.  Jacob’s mistrustful, broken and loves to whisper sweet nothings in Spanish.  The thing is, it took me awhile to understand where his Spanish comes from and even then I’m still slightly confused.  I feel like I’m missing a huge chunk of his backstory.  There is definitely chemistry between these two and often times the teasing made me smile.  It did seem like a little bit of a case of insta-love but eventually it evened out.  There are a lot of secondary characters in this book.  Some definitely added to the depth of the story.  I loved Sara’s family—I’d have loved to grow up with a large family of sisters as close as them.


There is a lot of drama and happenings in this book.  While drama-filled, it isn’t high on the angst meter.  I think there was so much going on that I just couldn’t concentrate on the emotional parts.  There were plenty of twists and turns to keep me on my toes, some I kind of scratched my head at.  But if you’re into drama-filled stories, this just might be up your alley.  It didn’t work for me but others may find it enjoyable.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J

Excerpt:

Sara turned toward the customer whose face she couldn’t see. One would think living this close to the Mexican border, she’d would be immune to the effects of the foreign language rolling off a man’s tongue. One would be wrong. Its gentle cadence sent her into fantasies at the first word. If she were ever going to take a risk on anyone it would be with someone like the man who currently had his back to her while he placed his order. At least half a foot taller than Sara’s own five foot eleven inches, he towered over everyone, and in a way that commanded attention. His knee-length jacket hid everything but broad shoulders, yet his presence called to her on a visceral level. She didn’t have to see his face. She didn’t have to see his body. His sex appeal came from something far greater than those two things. And she wasn’t the only one staring. At least half the people in the place had their eyes focused on him too. “Ma’am.” The barista nodded in Sara’s direction, breaking her fascination and offering a to-go cup. As much as she wanted to continue staring, she grabbed her phone, took the coffee, and headed outside. Her favorite drink would have to suffice as the only hot thing in her life at the moment. Sipping it while she drove the rest of the way to work would be infinitely better than whatever drama that guy was sure to cause. Shivering, Sara hustled to where she’d parked her car while checking the time on her phone. Twenty minutes to spare with only a fifteen-minute drive. Not bad. She smiled in triumphant at her little red Toyota. Her smile didn’t last long. She’d come out with her coffee, but only two of her other possessions. A voice behind her said, “You might need these.” The familiar tenor from inside washed over Sara and made her forget all about the cold and how she’d be better off without the complication of one extremely sexy Latin man. His voice tempted her even more up close than it had in the café. She struggled for words, fearing her reaction would only intensify once she turned around. If he could start a shiver racing down her spine while he remained faceless, what would he do to her when her gaze actually met his? Knowing he most likely had the keys she was now missing, she turned slowly, keeping her stare solely fixated on the huge palm holding out her keychain. “Um…” Oh, stop being an idiot. He’s only a man. “Thanks, I appreciate it…” Her voice trailed off as she realized the man in front of her was much more than only a man. The person holding out her keys was none other than the person whose pictures she’d spent countless hours drooling over. Jacob Ramírez. The Latin lover of her dreams.
