Gracen Lowell is on the hunt for a man—but not just any man. He has to be ‘the one’. Her only problem is that no one she’s dated has ever measured up to the charming qualities of her best friend.

Slade Owens knows no matter how much he loves Gracen, he’ll never be what she’s looking for. And he dang sure isn’t going to stick around to watch her fall in love with someone else. Slade leaving the Owens’ family farm for an out-of-state job should put enough distance between the two to allow him to move on with his life and Gracen to search for her happily-ever-after.

Gracen knows asking him to stay isn’t fair. Slade thinks leaving her behind is the only thing to do. Inexplicably drawn together, the best friends must decide if they have what it takes to own up to their feelings… before it’s too late.

What It Takes by Sonya Loveday

What It Takes - A Dirt Road Love StoryLove is in the air and it seems the only two who don’t know it are Gracen and Slade. Best friends forever, they share everything, except their true feelings and that little lack of communication sends Slade off in search of a job far away, to make a clean break, get a fresh perspective and avoid watching Gracen fall for anyone else. It isn’t that Gracen falls in love easily, she is very particular and only her perfect man will do. Of course, Slade doesn’t think, no, he KNOWS he could never be that man in her eyes.

It may take a stampede or worse to bring Slade back to the land and ranch he loves, heck he wouldn’t go if only Gracen would give him a sign that she feels the same way he does. Meanwhile, of course Gracen is too afraid to ruin their friendship by asking him not to leave. It takes the reality of life to wake them up to the reality of their feelings…and all I can say is that it is about time!

Sweet with a large dash of angst and a total lack of communication, Gracen and Slade are clearly meant for each other and of course, they are the last to admit it…but will it be too late?

Sonya Loveday’s WHAT IT TAKES begs the question, what WILL it take to bring these two together! A fun read, quick and perfect for summer romance reading! Both characters are completely likable, as are the rest of the cast, and really, sometimes you just need romance that makes you smile, right after it makes you want to throttle them both!

Ms. Loveday has set a stage that is both alive and down home, even as she addresses some darkness that can touch a life.

I received an ARC edition from Sonya Loveday in exchange for my honest and voluntary review.
