When it’s Right by Jennifer Ryan

Don't let the picture of the hunky cowboy on the cover fool you. When it's Right by Jennifer Ryan has a storyline with real substance. There is romance, of course, but the story line touches on serious subjects like domestic abuse, addiction to drugs and the effects it has on children who live through it. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a story where the underdog finally gets all that they deserve.
