Love at any cost

Love at any cost, by Julie Lessman. Cassidy is a strong willed girl, in a time where strong willed girls were looked down upon. After thinking she found Mr. right, who turned out to be Mr. Wrong, Cassidy decides a new start is in order and joining her cousins family for the summer in San Francisco and hopefully longer to teach at an all girls school. She's written off boys, she's not looking for any type of relationship, and in fact will do everything in her power to prevent a relationship. Unfortunately she's met Jamie, who's just as headstrong and smitten with her. He will do what ever it takes to show Cassidy that she can trust him with her heart, that is until he finds out that she doesn't have the money he thought she had. 
     Well the story line of this book was good, the characters were great and I really liked them. But what I didn't like was the style of the writing. I found the author to be painfully obvious in trying to communicate that they were from Texas. The over use of the the words: hog tied, and pretty boy, etc.. were very wearing. I wanted to love this book, because the characters were great, but I just found the use of language to write the story too painful to actually enjoy it. Perhaps there's others out there that enjoy that, but I'm not one of them!
