SYNOPSIS:

ATTENTION: If you have been a victim of false advertising, you may be entitled to compensation. If you were ever hired to take care of a fourteen-year-old boy’s knee injury on a luxury ranch in the Middle of Nowhere, Utah, but that fourteen-year-old boy ended up being a tall, rough-and-tumble, muscular, one-hundred-percent all-man cowboy by the name of Rhett Jameson, you may have been put at risk for falling in love. Please seek counsel immediately.

Dear Counselor,

It was supposed to be simple favor for my very important boss, Frank Kaminsky of the Salt Lake Slammers professional basketball team—go to his good friend Tex Jameson’s luxury ranch and provide personal medical care for his recently injured teenage son.

I thought it’d be a working vacation of sorts—a chance for my city-girl self to experience something I would never otherwise do—but everything is upside down, and absolutely nothing is as I thought it would be.

For one, this patient is not a teenage boy.
He’s a real-life, blue-eyed, tough-as-nails, thirtysomething cowboy who is so darn strong he looks like he could lift a car just for the heck of it.

He’s also stubborn, rude, and we don’t get along…at all.

Add in the heart-melting vision of him as a single father to the cutest little girl on the planet, and I’ve found myself in a whole different dimension of trouble.

Lust. Feelings. A whole lot of enemies-to-lovers-style complication.

Please help me. My name is Dr. Leah Levee, I am a victim of false advertising, and if I’m not careful, this Grumpy Cowboy might just be the death of me.

MY 📝REVIEW📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Wow! This book has it all! I was engaged from the very first pages and could not put this book down. I have never read this author before but you can be sure that I will be changing that after having read this gem. What an amazing, passionate novel! This book is heavy on family and loyalty. I loved the equal bullheadedness between both the hero and heroine. Even the secondary characters such as Tex, made the story more poignant. I just can’t say enough. I don’t want to give any of the story away but I can tell you a few things you already inferred from the blurb.

Rhett’s pride and loyalty to his friend gets him injured. The injury is pretty bad but that won’t keep Rhett from doing his job even despite the obvious fact his stubbornness is only hindering his recovery. Tex, who is Rhett’s father, takes it upon himself to bring in a medical professional to help move along Rhett’s recovery without him hurting himself further. Of course when the beautiful Leah arrives on the ranch, Rhett is not happy with his father’s interference. To say he is beyond accepting of the doctor’s help is an underestimation.

The story moves along in a perfect pace as Rhett and Leah navigate their doctor/patient relationship. Rhett was a real jerk at times to Leah but because she is just as stubborn, they made it work and as a result, there are some pretty humorous moments. As they got to know each other, their feelings changed and grew. Some of the best moments in this book was watching that unfold. Oh, and the humor was tear-worthy. I have to say, Leah was hysterical. This is definitely a book I would re-read over and over. There is a perfect balance of seriousness and humor. And if those attributes aren’t enough, you can be sure to fall in love with the scene stealer of the story which is Rhett’s adorable daughter Joey.

I loved this book so much and truly believe you will as well. While I received and advanced reading copy of Grumpy Cowboy, this is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

SYNOPSIS

This time he wants it all…

Hudson Granger’s family has been estranged since he was a boy. Sixteen years later, not much is different. Or so he thought. After an eighteen-month deployment, he arrives home to his family’s Texas ranch and is shocked by how much life has changed. His brothers are mending fences and have found love. Their father is slowly recovering from a massive heart attack. The kick to Hudson’s chest—learning he has an infant daughter.

Nurse Avery Collins never planned on telling Hudson their vacation fling had resulted in a child. He’d made it clear he wasn’t looking for anything serious, and after her dad ran out on her and her family, she didn’t want to rely on a man for anything. But when her daughter has a serious health scare, Avery’s hand is forced.

Despite their sizzling attraction, Avery is determined to keep Hudson at arm’s length, co-parenting only. But Hudson wants everything—a wife and a family. And he’s determined to get it.

MY 📝REVIEW📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Written beautifully leaving my heart light and my face smiling when it was over, this book had a good, steady pace so I barely noticed how quickly I was reading. The sad part? It was over too soon.

Cowboy Honor is the last book in this series, the latest Granger brother to find his happily-ever-after. And if any group of siblings deserved a happy ending, it was definitely the Granger brothers. This was Hudson and Avery’s story. Let me also say that Avery was desperately in need of a happy ending as well. I’m so happy they found it in each other.

This is the fifth and final book of the Tangled in Texas series. I read book one some time ago. In that book we are introduced to the dynamic of the Grangers, and it is not a good one. These siblings, thanks to their own father and his inability to deal with his wife’s terminal illness, have grown into solemn, angry men. There is a mystery revolving around the Granger patriarch that resolves at the end of book four and as a result of that deceit has Hudson dealing with finding out he is a father. A secret that was kept from him.

Since I have only read book one, and now book five, it was apparent I missed out on a lot. While Cowboy Honor can be read as a standalone, there were many references to something that happened in book four that I wish I was privy to beforehand. Having met all the Grangers in the first book, I feel like I missed out on their character developments. I was curious about them then and even more so now so needless to say, I will be back reading the other books.

This book is filled with emotions; angst, anger, frustration and betrayal being front and center. But quickly, Hudson finds himself a father and love and joy slowly shadow his other emotions. I won’t go into the specifics but I will tell you this book is about trusting and forgiveness and a love that is realistic. The main protagonists did not have an easy road. Both having issues other than their co-parenting. Avery and Hudson had their own doses of father issues that were not so easily resolved. I think I can honestly say that the romance wasn’t my favorite aspect in this particular book. I found myself invested with everything all at the same time.

This book was a pleasure to read and I definitely recommend it! While I did receive an advanced reading copy of Cowboy Honor, this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Check out the McAllister Brothers Series on Goodreads

Synopsis:

He’s not looking for anything serious…

When his older brother asks him to move back to Whiskey River to help run the family ranch, former Marine Grant McAllister feels obligated to agree. After spending two years recovering from battle injuries, coming home finally feels right. Relishing being back on the land, Grant decides to refurbish the family’s old hunting cabin as his new home. When the artisan designer he hires turns out to be a beautiful, intriguing woman, he hopes to mix business with a little pleasure.

She needs to remain uninvolved…

After the death of her Marine husband, a pregnant Abby Rogers moved to Whiskey River to be closer to her husband’s family and escape her controlling mother. Reinventing herself as a designer, she now focuses on her business and mothering her young daughter. She has no time for relationships—no matter how tempting she finds her handsome new client. But when her wealthy mother threatens to sue for custody of her daughter, Grant’s shocking offer forces her to listen to her heart.

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book was even better than the previous McAllister brother’s book; Ex-military hero and a widowed heroine with an adorable daughter. From the moment these two are on the pages together, you can feel more than just chemistry. There is a strong pull and while Grant would love nothing more than to explore that attraction, Abby isn’t looking for a relationship. Abby has enough on her plate with running her small business and raising her adorable daughter. In addition, Abby is fearful of falling in love again. As you can expect, Abby keeps Grant at a good distance and yet she can’t help getting to know him. The way he is with Abby’s young daughter is only another thing to like about Grant. Abby knows her heart is fighting a losing battle.

This book is well written with a steady flow. There are emotional moments and a bit of angst along with a slow burn romance. I didn’t mind the time it took for Grant and Abby to become a couple. The author did a great job at building the friendship first. I also loved the Texas country and secondary characters that gave me even more enjoyment. While I will admit, Grant and Abby had some emotional obstacles to get over, I appreciated the slower pace.

I absolutely love when an author not only immerses me in the story, but puts me there as well. This author painted the perfect scenes, wrote engaging monologue as well as dialogue and all around gave me a five star novel.

While I was provided an advanced reading copy of The Cowboy, this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

By
Author Kristy Marie

Purchase: Rebellious

Genre/Trope: #ContemporaryRomance #NewAdultRomance #PTSD

My Rating: 5

POV: First-person dual perspectives

Publication: April 30th 2021

Check out: Kristy Marie on Goodreads

Synopsis:

A love controlled by guilt, contained by rules… One summer will change everything.

No kissing.

No cuddling.

No blah, blah, blah.

He wrote the rules onto our skin—every ink stroke tragically smeared by the lines we’d crossed.

He claimed it was the only way we could be together—the only way we wouldn’t destroy our families.

But there was an exception to his rules—one he never saw coming.

All I needed was opportunity and a sunburn.

The girl who played by his rules is gone.

This girl… is not his “friend.”

My 📝Review📝 : 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

“Welcome To The Summer Of No Rules, Jameson.”

I am feeling a lot of pressure right now! How can my review do this book justice? Can my simple words give Rebellious the credit it deserves for being one of the best romances I have ever read? Doubtfully, so I’ll just stick to what’s in my bursting heart. So. Many. Emotions.

This book can be read as a standalone, however I believe you will have a greater reading experience if you’ve experienced a few things beforehand. Things that can be found in two previous books, Commander In Briefs & Gorgeous.. Theo and Cade’s stories. Theo and Cade are the fathers of Aspen and Bennett.

Aspen and Bennett grew up together, literally right next door. They are as close as two friends can be without crossing any lines. That is not to say they wouldn’t like to. Aspen and Bennett have been in love for so long, been each others security and pretty soon that may all come to a heartbreaking end. You see there are reasons why they can’t act on their feelings for each other, hence the reasons for Bennett’s never-ending list of rules. Rules that cannot be broken, ever. Fortunately for those two, Aspen likes to try and break the rules testing Bennett’s solidarity constantly.

I really can’t go into any details. A huge part of my pleasure came from the experience. This book is very emotional; it will break your heart over and over. You may even wonder how Aspen and Bennett will find a happily-ever-after together. While this book is intense and very angsty, the author adds plenty of humor and heartwarming moments with characters from previous books.

Kristy Marie’s writing is steady and flawless taking poignant dialogue and giving readers the beautiful prose we desire when searching for the perfect read. And I constantly find that feeling with all of Kristy’s books. You can easily infer that she takes her time; her stories are realistic and passionate and deserve high praise. I highly recommend this book and all of her works. They are keepers.

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

Synopsis:

He was looking for an escape. In her, he found his home.

Contractor and Handymen host Nick Zorn needs a change. He’s been feeling listless, and when his ex-girlfriend embarrasses him in a viral post by sharing private details of their sex life, he’s downright ready to escape. When an opportunity to reinvent his career arises, Nick takes it, even though it might mean the end of Handymen. However, the team has one more project to tackle together first—a struggling cat sanctuary in dire need of renovation.

When Nick arrives at the shelter and meets its owner, a lovely widow named Claire, his life is once more thrown into disarray. Neither of them is looking for a relationship, but the attraction is fierce. As he helps Claire fix her workplace, he realizes he wants to help her in other ways too. Their flirtation sizzles, flaring into a friends-with-benefits arrangement.

But the more time they spend together, the more reluctant these ‘friends’ become to fight their deepening connection, even though they know their inevitable break will devastate them…

Reader advisory: This book contains scenes of cyberbullying and harrassment, mentions of animal hoarding, bereavement and mourning. There are also references to male impotence and erectile dysfunction.

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This entire series has been a pleasure to read. With A Reluctant Attraction it ends on a high with a great happy ending. One of the aspects I found endearing in this novel was the references to many real-life issues. Many of us I’m sure have dealt with at least one, if not more, but the author writes them realistically into the storyline honestly, but delicately as well. I don’t want to spoil any of the book so I will be careful with details.

Nick has been going through a rough time the past months. In addition, he doesn’t realized where he fits in life anymore. Both his brothers are happily married and beginning to start families. Will they still want to do the reality show they are famous for? What will happen with Nick if they don’t? In this novel, Nick will grow as a character and a man. He will make life changing decisions and just maybe fall in love. When he meets Claire, there is an instant spark but Nick doesn’t act on it for several reasons but mostly due to an insecurity. But what Nick didn’t see coming was that Claire isn’t like the previous women in his life. There is something very special and healing about her.

Claire is a widow running a cat sanctuary that is in need of a lot of financial help and when her business is chosen for a makeover, Claire is apprehensive about letting the Handymen Crew near her late husband’s legacy. She overworks herself and has no social life outside of the sanctuary. Things soon change when she meets Nick.

Nick and Claire were amazing together. They start off slow but then their attraction for each other grows stronger. Because of where they each are in their lives, Nick and Claire decide on a friends with benefits relationship. During that time, they became closer than either expected and then things become complicated. There is so many wonderful aspects of the story and since I can say no more, you’ll just have to read and find out.

I truly loved everything I have read by this author and can’t wait to see what she’ll write next. While I was given an advanced reading copy of this novel, I assure you this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Purchase: Truly, Madly Texas

Genre/Trope: #ContemporaryRomance #CowboyRomance

POV: Third-person alternating perspectives

Add to TBR: Truly, Madly Texas

Also in the Series: Texas Forged

Synopsis:

Can they turn one spectacular night into a lifetime of love?

After a disastrous ride forces world champion saddle bronc rider Chase Walker back to his family’s ranch to recuperate, he’s happy to distract himself for a night with a mysterious, gorgeous woman. It should have just been a one-night stand, but she’s unforgettable.

Thanks to her cheating ex-fiancé, Ella Slade is done with rodeo cowboys…until she meets a sexy cowboy who catches a thief who stole her purse. What harm can one night of indulgence do? A lot, apparently, because when she arrives at her interview for a ranch manager job, Chase turns out to be her prospective boss. She’s adamant she won’t mix business with pleasure, but Chase suggests a deal—Ella takes the job, and they pretend that night never happened.

The longer they work together, the harder it is to pretend. Chase knows he’s falling for his midnight lover, but can he convince Ella to risk her heart again?

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Not mixing business with pleasure is easier said than done for Chase and Ella. Truly, Madly Texas was an enjoyable romance between two characters just trying to move forward in their lives. Chase is a side-lined Rodeo saddle bronc rider due to an injury. Unexpectedly, his recuperation is going to be life-changing. Chase just doesn’t know it yet. Ella is interviewing for a job as a ranch manager at Chase’s family ranch. She is hopeful and desperate to get the job. However, when she learns one of her bosses is a man she spent an unforgettable night with just days prior to her interview; Ella is crushed. Even if she is offered the job, how can she take it? Chase knows Ella is the best one for the job. So, they both agree to keep their night together a secret and basically forget it ever happened. With the amount of attraction and chemistry between them, it will be a losing battle.

Now while you might think the ending is predictable, the journey to get there wasn’t easy. Chemistry is only one aspect. Ella has trust issues a mile long and Chase isn’t planning on retiring from the rodeo circuit. Watching the ups and downs, with a bit of angst and two very likable characters was the perfect recipe for a well-written, sweet romance.

I truly, madly enjoyed this book~ ;). I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
While I received an advanced readers’s copy of Truly, Madly Texas, this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Check out the Series: The Greene Family

Synopsis:

In the middle of a crowded bar in our small Alaskan town, my estranged wife snuggles up to me as if we’re still a happy couple.

Don’t get me wrong, we were a happy couple—before she walked out on me a year ago. We were the high school sweethearts everyone thought were destined to be together forever. We thought so too, which is why we married shortly after graduation.

We had a good marriage. Until she left me without any real explanation.

Now, she’s back—and this is the real kicker—she has amnesia and thinks I’m still her husband. Technically I am, although the divorce papers are sitting at the lawyer’s office.

She’s desperate to remember her life in Sunrise Bay but I only want to find out why she left me. Once we conjure that memory up, it’s sayonara because there’s no second chances here. But as you probably already figured out, things didn’t go quite as I planned.

My Almost Ex is a second chance romance between two childhood friends-to-lovers in Piper Rayne’s brand-new, small-town family series, The Greene Family. Coming April 6, 2021.

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I loved this book so much! Devoured it in hours! The Greene family is so easy to love. Truth? After reading the Bailey series by this author, I didn’t think they could top it. But I should have known better because with Piper Rayne almost each new book becomes my favorite.

Adam and Lucy’s story was amazing. Angsty, emotional, and sad at times. Not for a single moment did I believe Lucy left Adam because of anything he had done. He was so devastated by her leaving the way she did. And boy was it a shock to everyone when she returned with amnesia. I appreciated the way Adam behaved because it was realistic. And while there is definitely angst, my feeling is that it is moderate which is my preference.

With the rest of the Greene family all up in Adam and Lucy’s business, the serious tone of the story had plenty of humor to balance the plot.

I don’t want to say too much because I want you to go into the story without spoilers. Really, I thought this was an incredible story and am already eager to reread. That said, I’m so excited for what comes next in the Greene family. While these books can be enjoyed as a standalone, you should definitely start at the beginning with Hank and Marla’s novella and see how it all started. You do that and you will only enhance your reading pleasure.

Having read an advanced reading copy of this novel, I can assure you that this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

At 31, I wished that she would ‘see’ me as I was beginning to see her, beautiful, determined, and independent but all that changed in a handful of cruel words. Now at 33 all I prayed for was a second chance to fix my mistakes….

Synopsis:

Professional rodeo cowboy Billy Wyatt is in the prime of his career. He’s having a fantastic year on the circuit, earning big money and leading the standings. Too immersed in his success and enjoying bachelorhood, he’s not interested in getting serious. But when a woman he’s never seen before shows up with a baby she claims is his, Billy’s world is turned inside out.

Erika Baylor, a PhD grad student, never planned to be a single mom, but when her cousin dies in a car accident, orphaning her infant son, Erika steps forward. She’ll help to care for her 4-month-old nephew until the baby can be reunited with his dad. She doesn’t expect the dad to be cocky, infuriating, and utterly irresistible.

Billy never thought he wanted to be a father, but looking into the eyes of the baby who is supposedly his—and whose blue eyes mirror his own—he’s hooked. But he’s hooked on the woman who’s holding the baby too… 

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Montana Cowboy Daddy is the third book in the Wyatt Brothers of Montana Series. I have read the previous books and enjoyed them as much. The Wyatt family is very much the epitome of a loving and loyal. While each brother has their own interests, they will never hesitate to be there for each other. From the first book, the loyalty, love, and camradarie are present. Add a strong, protective, loving grandfather with mother who will except nothing but respect and strong ideals. I truly adored this family. I especially loved the closeness.

Billy is a rodeo champ. He has been very successful in his career and has a strong financial standing to help when he finally retires. Unfortunately, Billy has no plans to retire anytime soon. He plans on a rodeo career for as long as he can. Nothing will come in the way of that. Especially not finding out he is a father. Billy was a great character. I respected how he was determined to be a father as well as continuing his rodeo career. At first, Billy wasn’t going to make compromises but he soon realized he had to make some changes. If he wanted to be the best father he could be, Billy would have to stop thinking of only himself. He was very lucky to have Erika on the road with him so she could care for his son. At the beginning, Billy took Erika for granted although I don’t feel it was intentional. He was just so used to living footloose and fancy free. Watching his character grow and mature was one of my favorite aspects of the story.

The chemistry between Erika and Billy is strong from the beginning but neither acted on their feelings believing that they should just focus on baby Beck. I don’t want to spoil any of this story for you but I will tell you the whole story in itself is a slow build to an incredible ending.

There is a bit of a hint that has me very curious as to how Tommy’s story will go. I already feel like it will be emotional. If you are a fan of Montana cowboys, strong heroines, and emotional romances, I recommend this series. The books can be read in any order but I believe your reading experience will be more rewarding if you start with book one.

While I received a review copy from Tule Publishing, this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
