If I Can't Have You

If I Can't Have You by Iris Morland Book Summary

Abby Davison only wants to focus on her career as a nurse, as she has no time for dating after a bad breakup over a year ago. When her mother presses her about settling down, Abby tells her a little white lie: she’s dating Mark Thornton, the handsome and gruff rancher who both frustrates and makes her heart flutter every time they meet.

When Mark overhears Abby's lie, he decides to cut her a deal: to keep his silence regarding their make-believe relationship, she'll come to live with him on his ranch until his broken arm heals. 

Despite her wounded pride and initial trepidation, Abby can’t help but begin to fall for the guarded Thornton brother as the days pass on his ranch.

The black sheep of the family, Mark makes no secret that he prefers horses over people. His brusque exterior, though, only conceals hidden depths and a wounded heart that Abby understands all too clearly.

As feelings start to bloom between them, neither is sure what is real and what’s make-believe. Yet the sizzling attraction between them is anything but fake, and with every kiss and every touch, they fall harder for each other.

But as their pasts begin to creep toward them, unearthing secrets both would rather keep buried, Abby and Mark must learn to trust each other—or risk losing the love both never knew they needed.

- Another underdeveloped love story3 star

I didn’t like Derek, but taking that character from a jackass ex-boyfriend to a homicidal maniac in a chapter was just poor story development. No explanation. No hints of a dark past. Just a convenient and unworthy plot device to create tension. It’s turned me off from wanting to read the other stories in the series. The sad part is that you had a good story. You just didn’t trust it...or you didn’t trust yourself to tell it.

Very good reading. love the story. Read in 1 day.

- Love this4 star

Good beach read or rainy day love story Enjoy

- Love on the Range2 star

This story has interesting characters who both have self esteem issues, making it difficult for either to believe that someone else will love them just as they are.

- If I Can’t have You5 star

Really liked this quirky love story. Sweet and romantic at times but with ups and downs throughout. Bit of a surprise at the end.

- Sweet5 star

A very sweet love story with a very sweet ending for two wonderful characters. I loved it.

- Needs more proofreading3 star

Right at the best part of the story, there is a proofreading error. Prior to that error I'd have given 5stars. Proofreading can make a break a story. It is truly worth the extra effort to read again & again & again & yet again.

The Thornton Series just keeps getting better. You have the feeling that you're part of the Thornton family. Love heals wounded hearts and makes them whole again. I would have liked to see Abby get pregnant and have a child.

- Way to catch a Cowboy!5 star

Loved the book! 4.5 Stars!! Harrison is such a closed off character. He keeps all emotion to himself even from his own family! When he reaches out to Abby it so out of character for him. Abby lies to get her mom off her back by saying Harrison is her boyfriend, it's such a split minute minute decision that she can't believe he decides to go along with it. It becomes a weird situation for them both. Abby feels some sort of connection to this crazy/weird man who is so closed off to the world. Harrison can comprehend how he can keep Abby around since he can't fall in love. It's a great story. Can they fall in love with such different ideas of their futures? Oh I fir got her cats. They play their parts 😊I read this book voluntarily for an honest review. This series is great. Don't get me wrong it can be read as a standalone but it's nice to see the secondary characters progress. It had a HEA and no triangles,no cliffhanger. Enjoy!!!

Philippa Marie - ‘If I Can’t Have You’ - Of course you can have me!5 star

I've had the pleasure of reading books 1 & 2 from 'The Thorntons' series prior to reading 'If I Can't Have You', now I have the even bigger pleasure of continuing the series with Abby & Mark, having won this wonderful read from one of Iris' giveaways in her private readers Facebook group, Iris Morland's Mermaids. Thank you Iris for the signed paperback! If you have or haven't read any of the books in this series, you might or might not know what they are about. Please continue reading ahead if you aren't afraid of spoilers! Here we go. The Thorntons series follows the children of Dave & Lisa Thornton. They are; Caleb, Seth, Lizzie, Jubilee, Harrison and Mark. 'If I Can't Have You' is where Mark & Abby's story begins! Mark and Abby have known each other for a short while, but their paths cross one night when Abby is on shift at the hospital as a nurse. Mark had been thrown off his horse, Samson, resulting in a broken arm. Prior to his spell in the hospital, he'd overheard Abby tell her mother that she and he were an item, not that Abby knew he knew this. So, he propositions her. He needs someone to look after him and his home while he's laid up and unable to work, in return for his mouth staying shut and not telling anyone that her lie to placate her mother was anything other than the 'truth'. With Abby reluctantly agreeing, she moves into his house under the agreement that when his arm is fully healed and the cast off, she would not need to live with him anymore. From this moment on, neither of their lives would ever be the same again. Both for the better and worse. Being already familiar with Iris and her work, I wasn't surprised to find that I was unable to put this read down as each page went by. Only so much can physically happen in a cowboy romance as it does in real life, without a read turning to the more paranormal/fantasy-based realm, where anything could happen. Iris though, she managed to keep this read far from boring or mundane. Full of hilarity, drama and stubborn-headed cowboys, you'll find this read just has hard to put down as I did. Settle down for one of the best reads from one of the sweetest authors around, weather you're continuing on from book 2, or reading this as your first Iris Morland read, it'll be one hell of a ride! Can't wait to get 'Dream A Little Dream Of Me', Lizzie & Trent's story!
