Blurb:

What happens when a tenacious sheriff takes on a determined cowgirl and her champion bull?

It’s never easy to make it in a man’s world, and cowgirl Tori Tremayne has chased the same dream most of her life—producing a champion bucking bull on the pro rodeo circuit. With her prize bull Maximus, she’s so close to winning top prize in the finals this year she can taste it. She can’t afford any distractions, especially not the tall, dark and swoony sheriff she’s admired all her life.

Sheriff Gray Dalton has been in love with Tori since they were kids. He doesn’t want to change Tori or derail her goals, but he does want to combine their dreams—build a life and family with her while she continues to pursue her career and passion. Gray knows he has to shake Tori up so that he can step out of the friend zone she’s so determined to keep him in.

Can Gray prove to Tori that with him she can have it all—career, love and a family? 

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Gray and Tori’s book is finally here! I must say I did appreciate how the author released this series with a short wait in between. From the very first book, I wanted to know what was going on between Gray and Tori. And with each book that followed my curiosity only grew. Lifetime friends since childhood, Gray always loved Tori. He fell in love with her as soon as he understood what that truly meant. And while Tori also loved Gray, she was slow to catch up. In fact, for so many years, Gray put her feelings first. He was so generous of heart and selfless when it came to Tori. That said, Tori was a likable character but I did not like how she took Gray for granted, over and over. And it took nearly losing him for her to realize her true feelings and how selfish she has been.

This was not and easy relationship. Gray had finally come to the conclusion that he needed to let her go. She was too focused on her career and Gray didn’t want to be taken for granted any longer. I loved him from the first three books so I understood it might be time to let Tori go. However what I didn’t connect with was the back and forth; that despite his resolve to stay away he kept showing up. That gave the story more angst than I like. In addition, I felt that Tori and Gray were not the people I thought I knew from the previous books. I guess I was just expecting a sweeter story.

The Tremayne family was a constant and that helped break up a bit of the angst. I loved all the family members and it was rewarding to catch up with their lives. In the end, Gray and Tori got their act together and I was satisfied how things turned out. They became the couple I always believed they would be albeit the few bumps in their road to forever-after. I loved this series and definitely recommend it. This is an author that I have read and enjoyed for a long time.

While I received and advanced reading copy of The Sheriff and the Cowgirl, this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Sinclair Jayne

Purchase: The Cowboy’s Challenge

Genre/Trope: #ContemporaryRomance #Cowboy #FakeRelationship #RodeoCowboy

My Rating: 5

Release Date: September 2nd 2021

POV: Third-person alternating perspectives

Kindle: 180 pages

Blurb:

She needs a favor. He needs a bride.

Langston Carr is back in her hometown Marietta as the temporary event planner for the Graff Hotel. The first event on the calendar is the society wedding that should have been her big day with her loving groom, so when rodeo cowboy Bowen Ballantyne swaggers into the hotel, all hard-bodied and chivalrous, she thanks him the way any single woman needing to salve her pride would—she kisses him.

Bull rider Bowen Ballantyne thrives on competition, but this time his cowboy cousins have taken their one-upmanship challenge too far. He needs to find a bride by the end of the Copper Mountain Rodeo. Bowen’s never backed down from anything, so when former barrel racer Langston Carr, his tormentor from their teen years, propositions him, Bowen rockets up the heat.

A game of pretend between rivals…what could go wrong?

My Review: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This was such a delightful novel to read. The Cowboy’s Challenge is the second book in the Montana Rodeo Brides series. I haven’t read the first book yet but will be doing that very soon. I had no trouble following along having begun the series with book two. In fact, I’d like to mention while these three books represent a different couple and can be read on their own, the stories are definitely inter-connected. From what I easily inferred, all three books take place over the exact same time frame. 

Langston and Bowen may have appeared from the start, opposites, however they were alike in many ways. I felt their connection from the very moment they met again. I want to say, that moment was entertaining. Yes, these two knew each other from their teen years, maybe earlier. They do have history but not the kind Langston always wished for. Bowen was enough years older at the time that he wouldn’t even consider a relationship with Langston other than platonic. I won’t go into details because you should unravel their pasts on your own. 

Both Bowen and Langston will have decisions to make as far as how they move forward together in their future. Their relationship started out for convenience but it was easy to see they were meant for much more than a ruse. I also want to mention that there is a bit of a mystery going on with Bowen’s grandfather and I suspect the resolution of that will be revealed in the next book, which I am very much looking forward to reading. This is not my first novel from this author. I have read numerous books from her and enjoyed them all. I definitely recommend this series.

While I received and advanced reading copy of this book, this is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

She’s a woman who values honesty. He’s a man telling a lie. Will the truth bring them together or tear them apart?

Danielle Morgan doesn’t need a recipe for love, she needs one for life. Hounded by her best friend to find a man or a hobby, she chooses the latter. After all, a hobby won’t break her heart. Perusing the aisles of a flea market, she purchases a box of books with one that promises to unlock what her heart desires. Right now, all she wants is to keep her job and stay ahead of her mounting debt. That is until she meets James, the hot new construction lead at Luxe resorts. Dating a coworker is against her rules, but James is a temptation she can’t resist.

After a failed attempt at marriage, James Parks is happily wedded to his career as CEO of Luxe Resorts. His job doesn’t complain when he gets home late, and it’ll never take half of everything. Working undercover as the construction lead is his only passion until he meets Danielle Morgan. The last person he should date is a woman who works for his company. But like a decadent dessert, the more he tries to resist, the more he wants her. Will finding out his true identity sweeten the deal or leave a bad taste in her mouth?

Do they have the right ingredients to create something magical or are they a recipe for disaster?

Find out in A Tablespoon of Temptation…

My 📝Review📝:
5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I have to tell you I discovered this author over the last twelve months. A book from her Aspen Cove series had been waiting on my TBR for me to read, and one day I decided to read something from that never ending list. Well, I was so happy after I read it. In fact, it led me to purchase several more of Kelly’s books. When I came across this book while browsing NetGalley, I knew I had to read it. A Tablespoon of Temptation was amazing. For a lack of a better adjective at the moment, I was impressed. This book had everything I look for in a romance. Character development is important. While this book doesn’t have a broad timeline, I felt the characters developed nicely. Both James and Danielle were burned by romance before. And while they each did not swear off love, they certainly weren’t seeking it out. Regardless, love found them anyway. Thanks to a wonderful cast of secondary characters, I was doubly immersed in the story. Engaged is an understatement. I loved this book!

The blurb does a good job in giving you a look into what the premise of the story it so I’m not going to ruin your reading experience by giving spoilers. I can tell you that from the first chapters, I knew this was going to be a five star read for me. There were quite a few elements involved in making this more than just a love story. There are secrets, humor, some angst and even a bit of whimsy.
And the end tied up perfectly, everyone getting what they deserve 😉

I definitely recommend this book to all lovers of romance and a feel good story with some complexity and a lot of heart! In fact, I recommend you add this author to your TBR. You won’t be disappointed.

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

BLURB
My job had taken me into the city. 
I’d taken myself into a bar afterward.
I’d only gone there for a drink, but then I saw her, sitting on that stage, singing her heart out, her words sad and sorrowful, her voice beautiful and calling to me.
I wanted to know more about her right then and there.
And after that night, after I took her back to my hotel, after we’d both been lost in pleasure, she left, no goodbye, not last name or phone number given to me so I could find her again.
Now, three months later, after trying to figure out where she was, searching the city, all but being a stalker, I was still nowhere close to finding out who Adele was. But that would change, because I was headed back to the city for work. My plan was simple.
Scour the city, go to every bar… find her, because leaving without making her mine was not an option.

Loyalty is the one thing Grayson Richard grew up understanding completely. His belief in loyalty above all else led to him becoming a New Orleans Joker, and finally finding the family he had always been lacking. But loyalty had also given him many sleepless nights. With his uncle imprisoned for a crime Gray knew his mentor Tucker committed, Grayson will be left with two choices, blood or loyalty.

 

 
Tucker McCloud was a small-time crook and drug dealer, who ultimately became one of the richest and most respected businessmen in the US…and behind the scenes, a big-time drug and arms dealer. When Tucker is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, keeping his empire running becomes next to impossible, and Grayson’s loyalty will once again be tested when it seems he’s the only one the old man can turn to for help.
 
In the midst of it all, Poppy Le Blanc juggles her own demons and will have to learn that sometimes strength is less about what you can do for yourself, and more about who you’re willing to let in to help you.
 
From the swamps of Louisiana, to the coast of California, lives will be changed, people will be broken and above all, loyalties will be tested. Ride along with the New Orleans Jokers, and find whether or not Grayson and Poppy can carve out a path that will lead them far from the pain of their past, or straight into the eye of a storm that’s been brewing for twelve long years.
