Sydney, the newest addition to the Cattleman’s serving staff, looks around the crowded bar. “What are you talking about? I’d pretty much have to avoid every single guy here. Look at this place.” She indicates the Cattleman’s Saloon with a sweep of her hand.
I shake my head while taking in the multitude of cowboy hats. “I’m not talking about the pseudo urban-cowboys, with their Levis, cheap hats and polished boots that only come out during Stampede week. I’m talking about the real deal.” I point to the men at the table she’s been ogling. “Wranglers, mother-of-pearl button-down shirts, expensive hats, and lines around their eyes from working outside.”
“Them?” She visibly swoons.
“Them.” I say, slinging my arm over her shoulder. “And those boys are the worst.”
Brooke is a barmaid who’s had her heart burned and broken from just the sort of men she is telling Sydney to stay away from. However, that’s easier said than done.
Cooper Hays isn’t just any cowboy…he’s a competitor with the rodeo circuit. But don’t you dare dare him. He’ll take you up on it…and that could lead to something reckless.
No matter how hard Brooke tries, she can’t resist Cooper. Maybe it’s because she sees something different in Coop. What sets him apart from all the rest? Is Cooper going to hurt her/break her heart just like all the rest, including her ex-step-father?
Whew! Did it just get HOT in here?
This book wasn’t what I thought it was going to be…and I very much liked it. Great storyline…with *gasp* HOT love scenes. A Western/contemporary romance/erotic tale, this one gives a little bit of all three. The love scenes weren’t raunchy like you get with some erotica, yet were still hot enough to make you swoon. I was thinking it was just another romance book with a hot guy on the cover…but this one took it up a notch without making it raunchy.
Set in first person point of view, this is a nice light story that you can read in a few hours. I enjoyed it. But then again…I’ve always been partial to cowboys. *wink* 5 stars!
