The Kissing Tree by Prudence Bice

After five long years, Georgiana McLaughlin returns to the only place she's ever considered home the same place she stole a kiss from Ridge Carson under the "kissing tree." But this time he's a man, and reconciling their past is just the beginning. You'll find yourself applauding each new chapter filled with fun, romance, and adventure in this captivating, heartfelt tale of love, friendship, and finding your way back.

First line:
"Georgie ran behind the tree in a fit of giggles, slowly peeking around to see if he had followed her."

Cute romance.
Georgie is pulled from the only life and family she knows by her mother who is trying to recover from a broken heart to move to NYC. After five years, Georgie returns to help her grandfather on the cattle ranch he owns. Enter the boy, who also works on the ranch. Sparks start a-flyin' but Georgie is close to a man in NYC.
I was often confused by the switch in point of views and characters. It seems the author threw in a chapter or paragraph just to make sure we new backdrop. Sometimes Ridge, the main love interest, lost his Colorado accent. I didn't remember Georgie and her best friend getting back together but then suddenly it was convenient for the story and they were. 
But the biggest thing that took me out of the story was the convenient rescues. In the middle of a storm, far from home, petrified at the tree limb flying toward your head? No problem! Ridge is there! Hurt your foot and need it stitched? No problem! Ridge can stitch you right up! It got a little annoying toward the end. No person can have that great timing. 
This book was a clean romance which I give points for.
