One Accident. Two losses. Three years.

Veronica Russo chases storms, but runs from her past by staying firmly in the present. Unwilling to consider the possibility of a future, she’s checked out of life by using solitude and standoffishness as her armor and a sharp tongue and quick wit as her weapons.

Coleman Cade is a walking contradiction- just like his mismatched eyes. A rough and manly bull rider with a playful side. A ladies man with thousands of willing victims, but what he really wants is one woman. The right woman.

Will Roni be able to let go, move on, and find a way to fulfill her dream of having everything? Or will unsubstantiated choices and unresolved demons stand in the way of their happily ever after?

In order to overcome past tragedies and find true happiness- in order to have Everything- Roni needs to do one thing. Find the impossible.

♥My Thoughts♥

I really liked the idea of a heroine who chased storms. She sounded gutsy and that intrigued me when I initially read the blurb for this book. And I have to say, I found myself quite liking Impossible. Sure, there wasn't a lot of storm chasing in this novel, but I was too caught up in Coleman Cade to even care about that. Because I really liked how the romance in book played out. It was sassy and made me laugh. 

Roni: I knew from the opening pages we were going to be in for a whirlwind with her. The loss she suffers is sudden and tragic and more than anyone should have to endure. But loss is sadly apart of life, and it was something that Roni was totally unprepared to have to deal with. So I wasn't surprised that she was constantly running. What I was surprised with was how easily the Cades got into her heart. But I liked that they did because not only did it show them to be great, great people, but it showed us how great Roni was before she tried to make herself hard and cold. She tried to turn into an ice queen, but she was never that. I loved how Coleman would sass her with some asshole comment and that yet she loved it because, really, he wasn't a jerk, (her was her asshole as he pointed out) and even though she wanted to be seriously annoyed with him at times, she couldn't be because Coleman got her. I was stunned by the revelation Coleman deals Roni near the end of the novel however, and although I wish that had been fleshed a bit more fully, it truly fit in with the story and with Roni's character. It also added another layer to Roni and Coleman's relationship that was believable because Coleman did doubt her there for a minute or two. 

Coleman: Hawtness in cowboy boots. He's a bit of an ass, but he's the ass every woman wants because as much as he's an ass, he's also not and every woman wants credit for that *wink* Roni can take the credit I think because he's loyal to her and such a gentleman. He values her and despite his ability to read her as easily as he does, he also has to struggle with not pushing Roni too hard. That's not easy because Roni will run at the slightest provocation. In fact, she tries to run even when she doesn't really want to run. I laughed when Coleman caught her at that, and loved that he just wouldn't let her run away. And I never thought that was hard for Coleman because he's that patient about it, but it's obvious by the end that it was hard for him. You might think he was something of a too be to true hero as you read this book, but he has just enough spitfire and doubt in him to save him from that label, because as wonderful as Coleman is, he isn't perfect. I have to love a hero who loves his woman this much. Always wins me over. And Coleman is utterly devoted to Roni.

The writing is clean, and the novel reads with easy fluidity. The characters are smartly drawn, and are witty, feisty characters that you can't help but grow to love. I love the way family comes into play in this novel as well, and I'm again reminded that you find family in the most unlikely places at times. A solid romance that was sexy and smart. I would like to thank the author for providing me with a copy of the novel in exchange for an honest review.
