Dolly Jennings has wanted one man since she was sixteen, but he’s kept her at arm’s reach. Time has passed and she’s all grown up now, with a body that he can’t ignore.
Brandon Knight has wanted Dolly for longer than he should have, but he thought she deserved someone better. No longer able to control his desires, he’s giving up on staying away, and claiming his woman.
When Brandon finally gives in, can he prove himself worthy of Dolly? Will Dolly throw sass and southern sayings all over the place?
Warning: This short story is packed full of big hair, big attitude, and big curves. Dolly holds her own, but the hero always ends up on top. *slow wink* Grab your boots and cowboy hat… We’ve got a couple of cherries to pop!
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“The Virgin Cowboy” Cowboys and Virgins #4 by Alexa Riley.
My Rating: 3.5 Stars!!!
Before I continue with my review I’m going to say I am not a huge fan of the “daddy” hero. Truth is I find it a bit creepy. However, if it is from one of my favorite authors, my loyalty compels me to give it a chance. Doesn’t mean I’ll like it but since I am open minded to trying out different tropes or genres, I will give it a chance. Fortunately this novella was not over the top “daddy.” That was probably likely due to the short length of the story. So I enjoyed it. Or let’s say I was entertained for the simple fact it was an AR book.
This is book 4 in the series and Dolly and Brandon’s story. Dolly is the youngest sibling of the Jennings. Her older brothers, Ty, Blake, and Trace had their HEA in the three previous books. We actually met our hero, Brandon, in, “Lassoing The Mail Order Bride.” There he worked on the McCallister ranch.
Brandon has loved Dolly for years. Dolly has loved Brandon for just as long. But she was sixteen and he is years older. Brandon knew he was too old for her. But now he isn’t and he’s decided it is time to stake his claim in that adorable caveman way that Alexa Riley is famous for. Dolly was always his anyway but now it was time to make it official. Dolly gives no resistance and what follows is dirty, smutty sex. Both Dolly and Brandon are virgins although you’d never know it by the way they couldn’t keep their hands to themselves. They went at it like true pros. 🙂 LOL.
I liked Brandon a lot and he seemed to be lonely before Dolly. I was glad he finally allowed himself to have her. And I loved how alpha he was too. It was his way! And Dolly who was independent, had no trouble taking orders from her sexy cowboy.
“You’re going to marry me, Dolly, not because I’m asking-I’m not-but because there’s no other choice I will allow.”
