Blog Tour – Wilder by Anna Brooks

 Release Date: August 26
 

56221487. sy475

I was too young to understand the beauty of what I held in my arms when she crashed into my world.

Frankie Young was never far from my mind, so when she came back into my life after nearly a decade, it was as if no time had passed.

After we reconnected in more ways than one, there was no denying what we had was extraordinary and, I thought, forever. But when she discovered something I’d been hiding, she gave up on us without giving me a chance to explain.

My lies broke her heart, but her walking away shattered what was left of mine. I thought that was the end for us… until Frankie and I found ourselves bound together for life. While we navigated our new found destiny, not only did we have to fight for each other, but we had to protect our future from someone who didn’t want us to have one together.

Review – Wilder by Anna Brooks

56221487. sy475

Wilder; Ryder Ranch #2 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: August 26, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Second Chance Romance

Author: Anna Brooks

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A steamy, multiple chance love story, that began as young love and blossomed into a forever kind of love.

Wilder Ryder and Frankie Young met multiple times throughout their youth and those times had a lasting impact on who they became and who they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with into their adulthood.

These two crossed paths over and over and seemed destined to be together, but obstacles keep getting in their way. They have HUGE chemistry together and Wilder is hawt…dang…he’s super hot, but is attraction enough to keep them together?

I felt like this second Ryder book is deeper in the feels, but that could be the artist nature of Frankie and the sensitive nature of Wilder. As the second child he’s very in tune to his siblings and losing his mother affected them all, but that loss made him dialed in to his feelings and then up front to what he wasn’t willing to lose in the future. However, when he let go, which there was only one spot he actually let go…watch out because Wilder is Wild.

Frankie also took on a lot of responsibility at a very young age. Her sister got pregnant very young and Frankie stepped up and helped out raising her niece, but she never lost her shine and started a business, all at the suggestion of a young boy she met long ago.

These two are magical everytime they are together and I love returning to Ryder Ranch to see old friends and meet new ones.

Blog Tour – Hunter by Anna Brooks

 Release Date: June 10

I never expected a runaway cow would have led me to the love of my life, but chasing after that heifer turned out to be the best decision I ever made.

Summer Paige was lost, alone, and a mess… just like her nearly totaled car. After a glass of whiskey and a promise to keep her
safe, I convinced her to stay while she got back on her feet.

 

It wasn’t long before the innocent beauty turned my life upside down, and I realized she was everything I didn’t know I wanted.


Life was perfect. Until the day I woke up and
found her gone.


Her letter was supposed to explain why she left, but it did the opposite and made me want her even more. I had to prove that her
past didn’t matter to me because all I wanted was her future. And I intended to
do just that… as soon as I found her.

Review – Hunter by Anna Brooks

56221475. sy475

Hunter; Ryder Ranch #1
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 10, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Cowboy/Small town/Contemporary Romance

Author: Anna Brooks

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I only recently discovered Anna Brooks and I’m already a huge fan! Within the first chapter I was giggling over sassy Summer and swooning over all the swagger Hunter was throwing out. I loved the entire story and couldn’t put it down. This was a big yes…yes….yes!!!

Summer may have landed on Hunter’s property by accident, but it’s truly the first time she’s felt at home in her entire life. It’s hard not to feel warm and accepted in the Ryder family with the small town welcome, but Hunter makes her stay even more inviting.

Hunter has never felt more at ease with any woman before, that is until Summer has an accident with a cow on his property. Offering to let her stay was the easiest choice he’s ever made in his entire life, but getting her to stay may be the hardest thing he’s ever accomplished.

These two fit together seamlessly. Their chemistry is electric and fitting in with the family is flawless. But, what is the big secret that Summer is keeping that could destroy everything?

Hunter is the first in a new series and I’m totally onboard for the rest of the Ryder cowboy brothers to ride to the rescue of their HEA’s. I adore the small town atmosphere, it reminds me so much of where I currently live;  the people, the hospitality, yes, everyone is all up in your business, but it’s also nice because people do care, but I do wish there were hunky cowboys riding to the rescue, thank goodness for books.

I love, love, love this new series and can not wait to return.

SYNOPSIS

Landon Brooks.

The ultimate bad boy every girl wants.

His world at Kinston College is full of parties, booze and sex. The opposite of mine.

I’m the quiet twin he never knew existed, until he heard a lie—I hated him.

Maybe that’s why he pursued me—why I became his obsession. It’s all about the chase, right?

I can’t deny that I like the attention. That my body burns for him. I shouldn’t crave him. I hate that I do. We don’t belong together.

That should have been enough to stop me from sneaking into his room, from teasing a thirst I just can’t quench…because once the hunt is over, it’s ALL over.

Unless he never knew it was me…

EXCERPT 

I stand at my door listening, waiting for him to make it downstairs, and then quietly open it. Keeping the lights off, I make my way down in the dark. I step outside and take a big breath of night air, letting it soothe the anxiety inside me. I peer into the dark, and can make out Landon’s shape out near the barn. I head toward him, the night sky bright with stars.

“Hey,” I say when I reach him. I can’t quite see his face in the dark, but can hear the stress in his voice when he says hello. “You want to go for a walk?”

“Sure.”

Grass and hay crunch beneath our feet as we head out into the orchard. A comfortable quiet surrounds us as we walk, both lost in our own thoughts. Finally I break the quiet and say, “Most of the trees are picked clean by now, but a few of the later apples are still on them. Want to go grab one?”

“Sure,” he says and I chuckle. “What?”

“That seems to be your word of the night. What happened to that great vocabulary of yours?”

Our knuckles brush, and I can almost feel him relax beside me. “Just a little lost for words tonight,” he says and I nod in the dark, even though he can’t see me.

“Come on,” I urge, and take his hand, sensing he needs a reprieve from reality, if only for a little while. “Let’s go do something fun.”

“Fun is good.”

We walk and walk and walk, until we reach our neighbor’s farm. I put my hand to my lips to make sure he stays quiet. “Where are we?” he asks in a whispered voice. I take my phone out and put on my flashlight app. I shine it on the corn stalk maze.

“My neighbors set this up every year for the kids.”

“It’s a maze?” he asks.

“Yeah, want to do it?”

He scratches his head and when I shine the light on him, he says, “Can you turn that off?” He used those exact words when I shone the light on him in his bedroom that first night, the night that feels like it happened so long ago.

“Sorry,” I apologize and turn it off. I run into the maze and he curses under his breath as he follows behind me.

“Where the hell are you?” he asks, and I run, loving the wind in my face, and just wanting to be twelve again, no worries, no hurt…

“Marco,” he calls out and I laugh.

“Polo,” I say and run around the stalks, coming to a dead end. I turn and take the right when I spot his shadow in the distance.

“Marco.”

His voice is close, and I keep running. When I get to a safe distance away, I whisper, “Polo.” I can’t stop the chuckle in my throat. It rises up and gives away my location as I try to get past him. He reaches out and snatches me by the waist.

“Got you,” he says, and tugs me to him. The chuckle dies on my lips as his heat reaches out to me, the space between us filling with want, need, and volatile energy.

“Ella,” he whispers in the dark, and I wet my lips, wanting his mouth on mine.

“Yeah?”

He pushes my hair back, and tucks it behind my ears and my entire body tingles, from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. His finger lingers near my ear, and trail down along my neck. His touch is like fire on my skin as I pull in a fast breath. A noise sounds in the distance, an animal scurrying in the night, but we continue to stand there, face to face, our bodies close, aligned perfectly. Before I can think better of it, I put my hands on his shoulders, just for one second—one last time—wanting to feel him.

He leans into me, and his warm breath washes over my face. I wish I could see his eyes.  But I’m being selfish, taking what isn’t mine even though it seems to be what we both want. Sometimes life just isn’t fair. I drop my hands, and step into him, pressing my face against his heart. His hands close around me, like he too knows we can’t do this. In the dark of the night we stand there, two lost souls.

Review – When the Storm Breaks by Emery Rose

54264834. sy475

When the Storm Breaks; Lost Stars #2 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: March 5, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Single Dad/Rock Star/Cowboy Romance

Author: Emery Rose

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Layers and layers that create tears and emotions and feelings…it’s what Emery Rose is the best at and as much as you want to despise her for it, I keep coming back for more. I totally love the angst and heartache and just overall happiness that I end up with by the end.

Brody is a character that has always felt broken. Never measuring up, never feeling wanted, and certainly never coming first in anyone’s life. He connects better with his horses than he does with people so it’s no wonder when Shiloh comes to stay on his farm he doesn’t see much beyond her initial stay. Brody is far from an optimist, especially when it comes to relationships, but something about Shiloh and the brokenness he sees inside her calls to him like no one has before.

Shiloh may be a rockstar, but living in the spotlight isn’t exactly conducive to making genuine friends. It doesn’t help that the few people who actually know the real her have actually taken advantage of her, breaking down her spirit over and over again. She needs to get away before she starts her long tour and Brody’s ranch is just the place to do it. She never expected to fall for the grumpy cowboy, but when it comes time to leave her rockstar life is even harder to return to than she expected.

These two people live on opposite sides of the same coin. Both have been broken down by people they loved, but they are now two people who live very different lives, one in the spotlight and another who lives in the wide open country. While they have been brought together by chance could they find a middle ground and make it work?

“Her voice was my favorite sound, and I didn’t think I’d ever tire of listening to it. It still reached deep inside and rattled my bones. Made my heart ache in a way I couldn’t explain. Nobody had ever touched me the way she had.” – Brody

Over and over my heart broke for Brody. While I read the first book and know Jude and Lila’s story and where Brody’s friendship came out with them, my heart aches even more knowing where his feelings were during that whole timeline. Brody constantly feels he’s never good enough, no matter what he’s doing, or where he is, or who he’s with. The rare exception is being with his son or with Shiloh, which is a first considering who she is to the world, but with him she’s just her.  So jumping into something more with a woman who could hurt him is risky and Brody is …ugh…gonna break you.

While Shiloh has her ups and downs in life as well, it’s Brody who truly captured my heart and broke it with Emery’s depthful writing. She has this way of bringing out feelings of being totally drained and filled up all at once. When the Storm Breaks feels representative of those emotions inside me, along with everything representative in the book, so have a few tissues handy.

 

Synopsis:

Our worlds never should have collided, but it seemed our paths were always destined to cross.

Brody McCallister was only supposed to be a means to an end. My golden ticket to get me closer to what I really needed—a way to make peace with what I’d done when I was eighteen, dirt poor, and left to fend for myself.

I only had six weeks in the middle of a hectic world tour to do it.
So the last thing I needed was to fall for a cocky cowboy. A walking contradiction with a charming grin, a dirty mouth, and a gift for healing wild and broken things.

His life was in Texas.
Mine was on the road.
He guarded his privacy fiercely.
I was constantly hounded by paparazzi.

Everyone warned me it could never work, that ultimately I’d be forced to choose—my music career or him.
I didn’t listen. I fell for him anyway.
Hook, line, and proverbial sinker.

But Brody was hiding secrets.
And when the storm finally broke, it destroyed everything in its wake … including us.

This entire book is fun and utterly delicious and I adored catching up with all of my favorite McKay’s while they experienced daily living.

My favorite moments reminding me so much of times raising my own children or when my husband admitted his own defeat in times he may have messed up. I was laughing right along with each of those precious memories.

As for the recipes enclosed, I always sway towards anything sweet so my favorite recipes were; Sierra’s Brownies—yum!! and The Slutty Mermaid as the yummiest beverage—delicious!!

Synopsis:

Saddle up and get ready to ride again with the infamous McKay family!

New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James has whipped up six brand new Rough Riders short stories featuring fan favorite couples—Cord and AJ, Colby and Channing, Keely and Jack, Colt and India, Carter and Macie, and Boone and Sierra.

These slice of life tales are the perfect accompaniment to USA Today Bestselling author Suzanne Johnson’s delicious, down home recipes—family fare created to share round the table with love, laughter, and plenty of second helpings.

So kick off your boots, hang up your hat and prepare to stay awhile as you’re entertained and tantalized with Cowboy Bites!

“Silas and Dinah are dynamite!”
— Lexi Blake, New York Times bestselling author

SILVER-TONGUED DEVIL, an all-new sexy, historical standalone romance with all-the-feels from the fan-favorite Rough Riders Series by New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James, is out now!

17.-Silver-Tongued-Devil--digital (1)

Their love story sparked a brushfire that grew into the legacy of Lorelei James’s Rough Riders series. This standalone historical romance is a prequel to the McKay family saga.

The West doesn’t get much wilder than Silas McKay. He’s earned his cowboy reputation not just as a rancher, but as a brawling card sharp who’s short on cash but long on charm. And just as soon as he claps eyes on the pretty new schoolteacher? Well, Dinah Thompson is about to discover what courtin’s like McKay-style—sweet, hot and passionate.

Luckily, Dinah’s got the sass and sense to stand up to Silas’s shenanigans. She relocated to rural Wyoming to teach and become a self-reliant woman, not to spend her nights dreaming about that blue-eyed rogue and his ranchwork honed-body. But Silas McKay’s powerful appeal and tempting promises convince Dinah to recklessly go all in with him.

When Silas’s long-standing rivalry with Zeke West puts Dinah, Silas and his twin brother Jonas in danger, each one is forced to make difficult decisions about taking a chance to build their legacy . . . and a love that transcends time.

Silver-Tongued Devil; Rough Rider Origin Novel 
(An origin standalone within a series)

by: Lorelei James

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Whether you are a Lorelei James fan, a historical romance fan, a fan of just a well written story, or looking for a new series because this is the where it all begins. Silver-Tongued Devil is the origins of the McKay Rough Riders series and although it may be the last book written it is the beginning of where the families McKay and West began.

I began reading Lorelei James years ago and was instantly hooked. The Rough Rider series became one of my instant buy everything Lorelei ever wrote and also forever has been a one-click author, so of course to have the origins of where this family came from is a feeling of pure giddiness that is basically indescribable.

It does not matter what time Lorelei writes the McKay family in; the 1800’s, the 1900’s, or even the 3000’s (yes, I’d love to see one of my favorite families living in the future) the point is the McKay’s are timeless, Lorelei’s writing is flawless, and I can truly never get enough.

Silver-Tongued Devil takes us back to the wild west. Back to a time when towns were just forming, there was such a thing as courting, and you worked hard for every little thing you had. Silas and Jonas McKay are twin boys who lost their parents young, but moved from the east towards the west and learned different skills along the way. This helped them survive once they finally settled on the spot that would become the McKay homestead. For Silas his dream of owning a ranch and the land needed to maintain the cattle actually coming to fruition. While Jonas was a deputy, which wasn’t necessarily his dream or his long term goal, but for now he was happy looking after his trouble making brother.

Dinah Thompson came out west looking to start over once she lost her parents. As a school teacher and nurse helping out the local doc she was content with her arrangement until Silas began courting her. Dreams of marriage and what could be made her wish time would move faster and also slow down all at once. She loved getting to know Silas’s land, setting up his home and especially getting to know him. If only he’d stay away from trouble everything would be perfect.

While Jonas is also in love with a particular woman, his love is a bit tricker to profess in polite society.  I’ll leave as a statement for you to ponder and discover for yourself when you pick up the book.

The McKay’s and the West’s have been feuding it feels like forever. You hear about it in multiple Rough Rider novels and you get to the bottom of where the animosity stems from here. A lot of questions are answered and just like Lorelei is known for, she doesn’t leave anything unturned. This is a gorgeous book that is not only rich and full of a time long gone, but also full of feisty McKay history. I could read her books forever and I know you will love this one!

New Release – Spun Out by Lorelei James

New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James returns for another wild ride in Wyoming with a new Blacktop Cowboys® novel in
SPUN OUT!!

No photo description available.

Kindle — https://amazon.com/spunout

 

Years in the Army equipped Bailey Masterson for many things: target shooting, rappelling off cliffs, dodging grenades. She’s lived through horrors that still give her nightmares. But nothing in Bailey’s life-or-death training prepared her for caring for the tiny terror that is five-year-old Olivia Hale. Or how to control her raging attraction to Olivia’s father, Streeter, the rugged, green-eyed cattle rancher who undermines her every move even when he stars in her dreams.

Streeter Hale has room for only two things in his life: his daughter and his job. He doesn’t date. He doesn’t get attached. Not anymore. So not only is Streeter stunned by Olivia’s improved behavior after just a few days with Bailey, he’s downright floored by his immediate attraction to the woman. But with secrets in her eyes and a body that doesn’t quit, Streeter begins to worry that Bailey Masterson might just be the one woman to heal his fractured family and broken heart.

One thing’s for sure–these two wrecked souls are spinning out of control as they desperately try not to fall in love…

Review – Spun Out by Lorelei James

Spun Out; Blacktop Cowboys #10 (Series)
by Lorelei James (Author)

This review is from: October 27, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Lorelei James is not only a one-click author for me, but one of my all time favorite authors. Every reason why to both of those reasons is contained in Spun Out. Her books contain every element that make her characters and stories come to life and feel like I’ve come home. Filled with emotion, passion, meaning, and people you won’t soon forget Spun Out is a book you need to read.

Although this is the last book in the Blacktop series, Spun Out is different than the previous books (and I say that in the best way possible) and can be read as a complete standalone. Yes, there are mentions of previous characters, but Lorelei fills in the blanks of who they are (because even for myself, it’s been a few years since I’ve read some of the books and I needed a refresher so don’t worry because you will be able to follow along).

Streeter Hale (next to his brother Tobin) is probably one of my favorite characters in this series. He’s a single father raising a strong-willed, intelligent child, Olivia. Between losing his wife, his livelihood (which included a falling out with his father and older brother), and raising his daughter with almost “Sheldon Cooper” like needs, he barely makes it through the day. When Bailey, Harper’s sister, arrives for the summer and tells all the parents who live at Split Rock Resort that their child are out of control (he’s somewhat thankful it’s not just his, but at the same time knows something must be done). The parents make a decision and decide that Bailey is just the woman to wrangle their kids in.

Sergeant Bailey Masterson is straightforward, to the point, and I love that she sees not only her one nephew, Gage, who is third born getting lost in the mix of his family, and she makes special time with him, but also that she understands Olivia, Streeter’s daughter right off the bat and doesn’t discount her as a brat (well maybe headstrong, but somehow she sort of admires it). When Bailey is asked to begin a Boot Camp for the children who live at Split Rock Resort, she isn’t quite sure is she is qualified, but when they offer her free housing where she isn’t living with her sister, husband, and four children anymore, the deal doesn’t sound half bad. Besides if it means getting not only her nephews and the other children to behave better, it has to be a win-win.

Living next to the hot, single dad and his precocious daughter isn’t exactly what Bailey had in mind, but she makes the best of it, especially as the summer moves forward and her living arrangements come with benefits.

Bailey and Streeter together are so hot…I think what makes it combustible is how Bailey helps Streeter find himself again. He’s been lost for so long that she brings his self confidence and personality to the light. She is sort of instrumental for several people in finding themselves and that is her gift. I’m not sure she is entirely aware of it, but she doesn’t share too much about herself and I’m not going to give away as to why she keeps it locked up tight.

Spun Out is the conclusion to a great series, and like I said above, it is different than the others, but in the best possible way. I really hope Lorelei continues with the next generation of Split Rock children (you get the chance to meet and know several, like Olivia, in this book), but time and her muse will show us what direction she will take us.

New Release – The Trouble With Christmas by Amy Andrews

TTWC - RB banner

“How is this book both adorable and sexy? The Trouble with Christmas is a big city meets small town, opposite attract hilarious romance full of holiday shenanigans, family, love and sigh-worthy moments. It’s one of the must-reads of 2019! I absolutely loved it!” –Naima Simone, USA Today bestselling author

The Trouble with Christmas, an all-new opposites attract romance from USA Today bestselling author Amy Andrews, is available now!

TheTroubleWithChristmas_1600(1)

All Suzanne St. Michelle wants is an over-the-top, eggnog-induced holiday with her best friend in Credence, Colorado. But when her hoity-toity parents insist she come home for Christmas in New York, she blurts out that her sexy landlord is actually her boyfriend and she can’t leave him—Joshy loves Christmas. The more twinkle lights the better.

Rancher Joshua Grady does not love Christmas. Or company, or chatty women. Unfortunately for him, the chattiest woman ever has rented the cottage on his ranch, invited her rich, art-scene parents, and now insists he play “fake rancher boyfriend” in a production of the Hokiest Christmas Ever. And somehow…she gets him to agree.

Apparently, he’ll do anything to get his quiet life back. At least there’s mistletoe every two feet—and kissing Suzy is surprisingly easy. But in the midst of acres of tinsel, far too many tacky Christmas sweaters, and a tree that can be seen from space, he’s starting to want what he lost when he was a kid—a family. Too bad it’s with a woman heading back to New York before the ball drops…

The Truth About Cowboys, a steamy, sexy, and laugh-out-loud funny contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, is available now!

TTAC_eBook_1600

While I was off pitching in the big leagues, my family was back in the small town of Sweetwater, Texas, running the family ranch. Then tragedy hit and I discovered there were secrets that my family kept, problems they hid. I went home, left behind the money, women, and fame. I took over the ranch and took care of my grandmother. I took over hiding the secrets. Then she came to town. A smart-mouthed, clumsy, too-smart-and-too-pretty-for-my-own-good city girl hiding out to write a book. She’s right here, on my property, in the cottage my grandmother rented her without my permission, and she sees too much. She knows too much.

Now suddenly my world is spinning, and she’s shoving a baseball back in my hand while baking cookies with my grandmother. She’s the devil and an angel all in one fiery little package. I decide I’ll wait her out. She’ll go back to the city. Only suddenly I don’t want her to leave, and everything I’ve settled for in my life isn’t enough. I want to play ball and I want her, but there’s that secret that won’t let go, but neither will she.

Read Kay’s Review: The Truth About Cowboys

Excerpt:

Jessica…

I dart toward the door in the far right corner and enter the bathroom, where I find a giant old-fashioned, barrel-style tub. I open one of the white cabinet doors and also find a towel, but I’m just too wet for it to help. Like that woman was for Craig. Oh God. There I go again. No. No. No. I will not think those thoughts. No more. I’m done. With him. With her. I strip down naked, wrap the towel around me, and hunt for my suitcase, which I hope like heck has the other bag of chocolate I packed.

Naked might get a girl in trouble, but I’m alone and it’s not like anyone is going to see me naked anytime soon. I can go right ahead and happily pack a few pounds of chocolate weight on a petite frame that can’t handle a few extra anything. There will be no more men for me. Therefore, there will be no trouble to be found. It’s a great plan and on this one, really truly, I dare to say, what could go wrong? I exit the bathroom into the bedroom and scream at the sight of a man standing there.

The cowboy who saved me on the side of the road is not only here, minus his trench coat and wearing a snug black T-shirt, he’s bigger and broader than I remember. The bedroom shrinks. My heart races.

“I was right,” I accuse, clutching at my towel, the only thing between me and him besides footsteps. “You are a serial killer.” I search for a weapon and I don’t know why there’s a giant flashlight on the nightstand, but it’s long and strong, and I grab it, my new prize. I also manage to drop my towel. Oh my God, I’ve dropped my towel. Goose bumps lift on my naked body and, Lord help me, my nipples pucker.

I try to grab my towel and almost drop the flashlight, which is a better weapon than terry cloth. I commit to the flashlight and my state of undress. “I will hit you if you come near me,” I warn. “I mean, kill you.” That sounds unrealistic and therefore lacks the bite I intend. “I will hurt you.”

He arches a brow and, to my shock and his credit, he doesn’t so much as blink at anything below my neck. I don’t know if I should be appreciative or offended. Am I not distracting? Am I not worthy of a look? Obviously, my ex didn’t think so and—

The cowboy starts walking toward me.

“What are you doing? Stay back.” I hold up the flashlight, but I’m the one backing up, hitting the wall with a hard thud. He snatches up my towel and hands it to me, his hand brushing my nipple in the process. I suck in a breath, even as the flashlight is removed from my hand and tossed on the bed. “The game is over. Getting naked won’t stop me from calling the police.”

“I’ll knee you. I’ll scream. I’ll—”

“You’re standing in my property, sweetheart.”

“This is not—”

“And yet it is. You picked the wrong house to squat in and the wrong town. I saw where you turned off. I knew where you were headed. Wrong choice, sweetheart.”

“Stop calling me sweetheart. And what the hell are you talking about? Squatter? What is a—” A bad feeling hits me. “You think I’m freeloading by sneaking in here and now I’m trying to buy a bed with my naked body? Really?”

“If the shoe fits, sweetheart.”

I scowl. “Stop calling me sweetheart. Since when do women seducing men try to hit them with a flashlight? Then again, we are talking about you here. I’m pretty sure you could make anyone want to hit you. Maybe that’s the only foreplay you know. A flashlight and a—”

“Stop,” he orders, his hands pressing to the wall on either side of me, and now his big body framing my naked body.

Unfortunately, that bad decision wears a cowboy hat, has a killer smile, and somehow managed to undo years of damage to her ego in just one night. She’s more than tempted to keep him in mind for future rendezvous, but in her heart, she knows better. After all, he’s just a playboy like her ex, and definitely no good for a serious relationship.

Cooper Dean’s night with Tessa is a wake-up call. Holding her had felt different. Not like a one-night stand at all. And while he wants to see more of her, he knows he has to get his life together first. That means coming to terms with his grief over the loss of his wife, and rising to the challenge of fatherhood. His first task as a single father is to take his son to the first day of Kindergarten. Seems simple enough, until he finds out that his son’s teacher is none other than the lovely Tessa Hunt.

Now, the two neighbors are finding common ground in their concern for Cooper’s children and their attraction to each other. But can Tessa open herself to trust again? Can this cowboy widower let go of his past and embrace the future with a new love?

Read Kay’s Review: About Last Night

He lowered his eyes, suddenly aware he was half-drunk and mostly naked at ten thirty in the morning. “Maybe I could take you to dinner.”
She snorted. “Don’t do me any favors. Let’s just go back to the way things were and pretend we don’t know each other.”
He looked back up. Was she serious? Last night was the best sex he’d had in ages. She’d been all over him like an animal; he could barely keep up. Maybe he’d failed to impress her. She was a little older than him. Maybe she had higher expectations than the college girls he usual landed in bed with. Still, he wasn’t one to beg. Not much, anyway. “Come on, Tess, what did I do wrong?”
“Nothing. You did nothing wrong. I’m just…just embarrassed and ashamed, and I want you out of my sight so I can pretend like it didn’t happen.”
With a sigh, he stepped backward toward the door. “Tell you what. I’m gonna get sober, get dressed, and then ask you out proper-like, okay?”
“What is this?” she asked. “You feel sorry for me or something?”
“No, not at all. It’s just—”
“I don’t need you to fix this. Last night wasn’t your fault. You were just behaving according to your nature. I’m the one who did something stupid.”
His confusion suddenly took a back seat to anger. “You keep talking about me like I’m too dumb to understand what you’re saying. I got feelings, too, you know.”
She actually snorted before turning back to her coffee pot to fill the mug she’d been holding. “Sure you do, cowboy. You and your feelings need to get the hell out of my house.”
“You know, some women are actually happy after a night with me.”
“Well, then, maybe your time would be better spent finding one of them.”
Fine. What was the point arguing with her when she was so all-fired determined to dislike him? “Maybe I will. I’ve got plenty of options. Plenty.”
“I’m duly impressed,” she said blandly.
“You should be. I’m talking tall, stacked, gorgeous young women.”
She slammed her mug on the counter, coffee splashing out, and spun to face him, this time with tears welling in her eyes. “Then go! I cannot imagine why you’re standing here bothering me when you clearly have better things on the horizon. Just go!”
“Fine! I’m going. And hey, keep that damn dog of yours on your side of the yard.”
“Leave Clark out of it. He never did anything to you.”
Cooper slammed the door behind him. He’d been living in companionable silence next door to that woman for nine months, now. They didn’t speak much, but sometimes he’d mow her lawn for her, or she’d pick up his mail for him and set it inside his screen door. It had been nice. Polite. But now, well, she could mow her own lawn and see how she liked dodging the piles of crap Clark left all over.
He beelined for his fridge and grabbed another beer. So what if she thought he was a slob? So what if she thought he was the male version of a slut? So what if she was maybe a little bit right?
He took his beer to his room, and before he fully realized what he was doing, he started unstacking the boxes in the corner until he came to the one marked, keepsakes written in his mother-in-law’s handwriting. He ripped the tape off and opened the box. He set his beer on the floor and began digging through the contents, a mishmash of items from jewelry to letters to photos. And then he pulled out a framed photo. He collapsed against the wall and held it in one hand while he reclaimed his beer.
Kirsten had been his first everything. First kiss, first partner, first love. In the photo, she was smiling, several months pregnant. She was staring up at a handsome young man who had never slept with anyone but her, and who never got drunk to numb his feelings, and who couldn’t wait to take on the responsibilities of fatherhood—a young man who was gainfully employed and took pride in his work. A young man Cooper never saw anymore when he looked in the mirror. No, what he saw in the mirror was exactly what Tess saw…a bum. A young, irresponsible, drunken bum.
The photo was beginning to blur as Cooper’s eyes stung with unshed tears. “If I knew how to get back to that I would,” he murmured.
He kissed the photo, crawled into bed, and fell asleep with the empty bottle in one hand and the photo in the other.

EXCERPT

“I won, you realize that, right?”
“Yes, cocky one, I do. What’s your point?” she retorts, clearly not realizing where I’m going with this.
“I won, therefore you arrived last…”
Realization flashes across her features and she looks up at me, where I’m still perched atop Thor, with her hand providing shade over her eyes and her lips slightly parted. “You can’t be serious. Right now?”
“Mhmm, right now.” I nod my head and fold my hands over the horn of Thor’s saddle. “I need to see you gloriously naked and getting into the water.”
“You really are serious.” She shakes her head and starts to pull her hair back. “You can tell me you’re joking anytime.”
“Allie, I’m serious as a heart attack. You agreed, last one here is the first to skinny-dip. And I want to watch every second of you doing exactly that.”
“My God, you are so full of yourself. I suppose you’re going to stay there on top of Thor, like you’re the ruler of the lands?”
My only answer is to smile at her.
“Impossible. You’re impossible.” She pulls the band off her wrist and secures her hair into a messy pile above her head then she works her boots off with a huff. “How am I supposed to dry off?”
“I brought two blankets, we can share one so you can use the other to dry yourself.”
“And what are you going to—you know what—never mind.” She steps up in front of Thor and slides her hand over his face. “You’re a traitor, Thor. You should’ve lost for me.”
She makes me laugh loudly. “He knows whose horse he is. Now, quit stalling”

AUTHOR BIO

I was born and raised about twenty minutes north of Denver, Colorado where school and soccer were always my primary focus growing up. Though, I read and wrote as often as humanly possible, too. I’ve always loved doing both, and my love for words has only grown since my childhood.

I stayed local for college and majored in Biology, with every intention of going to medical school. That never panned out. I realized right before I took the MCAT that what I wanted most out of life was to have a family of my own one day, and to be able to write a book. It was then that I decided that being a doctor wouldn’t have left much time to accomplish either of those things.

Since then, I’ve done child care, and tried to figure out where to go next, while also finally working on my own stories that I can share with the world.

And I hope that the amazing people that give me a chance fall as in love with my characters as I have.

Review – Hold on Tight by Anjelica Grace

Hold on Tight; Cowboys and Angels #1 (Series)
by Anjelica Grace (Author)

This review is from: May 20, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Hold on Tight is a story that reflects life’s ups and downs, a family that goes through good times and the worst of times, displaying what marriage means after you say “I do” and the story really begins.

Life isn’t all sunshine and roses. It’s hard work, compromise, tears and heartbreak, but it’s also love and partnership, knowing you have someone to confide in and laugh with at the end of the day.

Hold on Tight is the story of Chase and Allie deep in marriage, already with two children and on track with successful careers, but at this point Chase is on the road more than he’s home. He’s chasing his dream to be the world’s best bull rider and that’s only done from the back of a bull riding the circuit. That means Allie is home raising their two daughters basically alone. He loves chasing his dream, but also feels guilty for being gone. He clearly loves his family which makes him very likeable.

To add to the aloneness and crazytime schedule on the homefront, Allie feels like a failure when it comes to getting pregnant with their third child, which isn’t exactly her fault considering her husband is gone more than he’s home, but the feelings of guilt still don’t help. She wants her husband home just as much as her daughters do, but how can you ask the man you love to give up on his dreams? Allie doesn’t want to voice how much she wants Chase home because she’d never stop him from doing what he loves, but watching her children miss him on a daily basis is a heartache that runs deep.

At the end of the day, even when two souls want to have different goals, and especially when times get tough, they still care deeply about their family and about each other. Chase and Allie have a deep relationship that tests their marriage constantly, actually, that is what marriage is, like I said, it’s not all sunshine and roses, but even when you are mad or angry and may not like your family at the end of the day you still love your family no matter what.

There are so many factors that play into this story, I connected with it both as a mother and a wife. As much as I love reading characters falling in love, this was a refreshing change to feel connected to someone else who also shares my frustrations in raising a family and dealing with an absent husband.

Also, I read the prequel novella, More Than Winning, before reading Hold On Tight. It gave me a quick insight into Chase and Allie’s relationship which was nice, it’s a quick read, but it isn’t necessary to read before reading the full novel.

Read the review below and decide if you want to read it as well.

More Than Winning; Cowboys and Angels #0.5 
by Anjelica Grace (Author)

A prequel novella to Hold on Tight, but can be read as a standalone if you are looking for a fast read.

Chase is home for not only for the holidays, but he just completed the rodeo circuit. He didn’t finish where he was hoping, putting a damper on his mood and the plans he had to move forward in having more children.
That was the deal…place 1st and have another baby.
To say he’s bummed is correct.

Allie already has her hands full raising their two daughters and she misses her husband when he’s gone. She loves the holidays more than any time of year, even if it brings up the memories of losing her parents. The thought of having another child hasn’t even crossed her mind. Is she really ready? Chase is gone so much. Can they just focus on the holidays.

This novella is sweet, all about family, and will give you a taste of Chase and Allie’s story.

Review – About Last Night by Carter Ashby

About Last Night; The Kentucky Cowboys Trilogy #1 (Series)
by Carter Ashby (Author)

This review is from: May 13, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥

A slow burning romance that brings a widower and a divorcée together in a mix that sheds new light on sharing grief and growing together through it.

Loss is loss, but when one spouse loses his permanently his spouse is forever placed on a pedestal, but when the other loses a spouse through divorce by unsavory means you tend to place that ex-spouse in the gutter. Can you still build a relationship through a shared concept of loss?

Cooper Dean is a man still grieving his dead wife, Kirsten, while still struggling how to be a single father of two young children. How do you move forward when you’ve lost everything? Cooper’s made mistakes, he’s made a lot of them, but he’s trying to move forward and make amends, mostly because he wants to be a better man for Tessa. He’s finally met someone since he lost Kirsten that makes him want to pull his head out of his a** and finally get his life together. The tough part is he’s having a hard time moving on from the memories of his dead wife. How can he possibly have a future with Tessa when he can’t seem to move out of the past?

Tessa has been hurt by her cheating ex, but she’s finally ready to move on. It wasn’t exactly the smartest thing to jump into the arms of her younger neighbor, Cooper, but she was a little tipsy the night it happened. Since then he seems to have set his sights on her and hasn’t let up. Her past hurts and his past manwhorish ways don’t exactly instill confidence in building a future with Cooper, but his relentless pursuit makes it difficult to say no. However, when his past continues to haunt him she may not have a choice in the matter of having anything more than just a few nights to remember.

How do two people come to grips with their different loses when trying to move forward in a new relationship? A new relationship is difficult enough but trying to understand where each is mentally coming from, really understanding each other’s loss, just adds to that budding relationship while navigating through new feelings.

About Last Night is a really good story about overcoming grief and loss.

About WOUND TIGHT:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lorelei James comes a crossover story in her Rough Riders/Blacktop Cowboys® series…

A May-December romance hotter than the 4th of July…

Bull rider Justin Donohue spent his youth hell-bent on winning world championships. After hitting the big 4-0, Justin takes a job at the Grade A Ranch and Rodeo School, where he immediately locks horns (and lips) with the sexy, sassy Callie—a 22-year-old cowgirl set on seducing him. Discovering their age difference doesn’t deter Callie; neither does Justin’s warning that she deserves more than a busted-up former rodeo cowboy.

From the moment Callie Morgan encounters the hot-as-fire new ranch hand, she knows his gruff manner is an attempt to mask his attraction to her. But she’s never backed down from a challenge, especially not when Justin’s actions speak louder than his denials. Callie doesn’t give a damn that he’s older than her or what others might think of their relationship. The uptight cowboy needs to relax and she’ll do whatever it takes to loosen him up, proving there are no age restrictions when it comes to lust…or to falling in love.

Read Kay’s Review: Wound Tight

Excerpt:

Justin paced in Callie’s camper, wondering if this phone call was really necessary.

Maybe he should just spring it on his brother the next time Jack was in Denver. Show up with Callie, like it was no big deal that he’d fallen in love.

But it was a big deal. A huge deal.

The past two months had been amazing. Getting to know Callie on a platonic level and then sharing the type of intimacy with her that he never thought he’d find. Not just the sex, although that blew his freakin’ mind every damn time, but just being with his sweet, sassy, sexy cowgirl. Doing normal couple things. Sharing meals. Sitting by the bonfire, drinking beer and swapping life stories with their coworkers. Curling up together watching TV on her rare nights off. Talking about everything, laughing about nothing, making love until they collapsed in a sweaty, sated pile and fell asleep in each other’s arms. Justin was so gone for her that he even looked forward to doing laundry, grocery shopping and cleaning the camper with her.

Crazy to think he’d almost passed this up out of concern that he and Callie wouldn’t have anything in common except their mutual lust. But she hadn’t lied about being able to read him. She knew when he needed space and she could pull him out of his brooding thoughts like no one else had ever bothered to try.

The one wrinkle in their relationship was Callie refused to talk about their future, probably because she believed they didn’t have one. Early on she’d promised him that she wasn’t expecting long term—that she fully believed that he’d just move on to the next job in the next town. Any time he’d tried to broach the subject with her, she’d distracted him with her mouth or her smokin’ hot body. And he’d let himself be distracted because his woman was very inventive in her dirty distraction techniques. But time was running out to tell her how he felt about her and ask for the chance to build a future with her. He still hadn’t shared the fact that he had a hefty bank account, not out of fear she’d start to use him for his money, but fear that she’d see the gap in their financial statuses as a bigger issue than the gap in their ages and use it as an excuse to leave him.

Christ. He didn’t know what he’d do if she left him.

Then you’d better figure out a way to make her want to stay with you.

EXCERPT:

“Have you seen the new ranch hand?” Callie gushed to her coworker Svetlana.

Svetlana—aka Lana—took a break from mopping and looked at Callie. “I cannot keep up with all of the new hires,” she said with a sniff.

“Oh, come on. How could you have missed him? I swear his hotness even made Mrs. Gradsky blush—and she’s been surrounded by good-lookin’ cowboys her whole life.”

“Did our boss lady catch you drooling over this man?”

“God no. I was literally hiding in the bushes outside the office as I picked up trash.” Callie sighed. “I had to stay still even when I wanted to break the damn branches to get a better look at that killer ass of his.”

“You were checking out his…?”

Her mind supplied “package” but virgin Lana would blush ten shades of crimson if Callie admitted that. Instead she said, “Behind? Of course. Such a hardship, watching that perfect cowboy butt sauntering away from me. But he did me a solid before he disappeared inside the office. He turned around and his frontside was just as delicious as his backside.” She whistled. “The man has it going on. Dark blond hair, vivid green eyes, great smile.” Amazing smile. Even from thirty feet away the man oozed charisma.

“You are what my mama used to call boy crazy,” Lana said.

“I’m not interested in boys. I’m interested in men.” Not that a man like him would take interest in her, especially not when she was covered in dust after a full day of doing grunt work.

“You are certain this new ranch hand is not married?” Lana asked.

“I assume not since he’s living in the bunkhouse with the rest of the hired hands.”

“How do you know that?”

Because curiosity had gotten the better of her. Despite Lana’s claims there were too many new hires, there actually weren’t. The Gradskys paid their employees very well, so employee turnover at the rodeo school or the ranch associated with the school was nearly nonexistent. When a new school session started there was an influx of students and parents, but the local staff only increased by two or three. And in the year she’d worked there, none of the hires had looked like him.

“Cal-lee,” Lana accused, stretching out her name. “You followed him.”

“I noticed him and another guy hauling some stuff from the parking lot into the bunkhouse.” She frowned. “He didn’t have much, now that I think about it.”

“Probably because he got kicked out of wherever he was living before. If he’s that good looking the guy’s probably a major player.” Her eyes took on a mean glint. “I hope if he cheated on his wife she took him for everything and he has to start over with nothing.”

Lana assumed the worst about everyone—men especially. Which made zero sense since she’d never had a boyfriend.

Review – Wound Tight

Wound Tight; A Rough Riders/Blacktop Cowboys® Crossover (Series)
by Lorelei James (Author)

This review is from: September 7, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Another hit for Lorelei James! This was a wonderful novella that blended both of her sexy cowboy worlds that not only had a rich storyline on its own, but also caught up with some favorite past characters from her Rough Rider and Blacktop Cowboys® novels.

Justin Donahue (brother of Jack Donahue and brother-in-law to Keely McKay-Rough Riders) has been a professional bull rider. Why do I say “has been”, well, Justin has hit the big 4-0 and riding isn’t exactly a sport for a man long in the tooth. What’s a busted up cowboy do when he isn’t sure what to do with his life? When you can no longer do, you teach. He isn’t at the Grade A Ranch and Rodeo School (Blacktop Cowboys®) for long when he meets Callie Morgan, a woman who knows what she wants and her sexy-take-charge lifestyle is something that ignites his fire. She’s a spark he didn’t know he was missing, but he also isn’t sure he deserves her bright flame in his busted up life.

Callie Morgan hasn’t exactly had an easy life, but she isn’t complaining. Hard work and determination will help her reach her goals and once summer is done she will be ready to begin a new path. Right now though–once she sees the new staff arrive at the Grade A Ranch and Rodeo School she can’t take her eyes off one sexy cowboy. She may work hard, but she never said life wasn’t worth living if she also didn’t allow for a little fun and Justin Donahue looked exactly like the fun she needed to include in her summer plans.

Justin has never met a woman like Callie in his whole life. No holds barred, no filter, and no strings attached sex. What magical land did he land in? What he can’t wrap his head around is why she wants him and his old man a**? She has him spinning and questioning everything he ever knew. He is basically wound tight.

Callie knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go after it. She wants Justin and doesn’t understand why he is hesitating, but perhaps if she can break through his issues then this may be the best summer either one has ever dreamed of.

Wound Tight is filled with sass, sexy swagger, and tons of cowboy charm that is everything I enjoy when I read Lorelei James.

Growing up with three older brothers, Larissa “Riss” Thorpe defines the term tomboy–a moniker that never mattered to her until she crossed paths with sexy cowboy playboy, Ike Palmer. His declaration that he prefers his women soft and feminine is the one benefit to becoming his business partner. Since Riss is obviously not his type, there’s little chance they’ll mix business and pleasure when they’re in close quarters on the road together.

Former cattle broker Ike Palmer was ready for a new chapter in his life when he partnered with Riss, a contrary redhead who lords her mechanical abilities over him at every turn. Ike raised his three younger sisters; he knows a thing or three about how women work. The problem is…Riss is unlike any woman he’s ever met.

With the odds stacked against them, Riss and Ike will have to choose between the stubbornness that keeps them apart and the fiery attraction that could lead to something more…

Racked and Stacked; Blacktop Cowboys #9 (Series)

This review is from: July 29, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

An enemies to lovers, nursemaid/roommate to lovers, work together to lovers novel. Yes, this sounds like a lot in one novel, but when you know that Larissa “Riss” Thorpe and Ike Palmer have been building to this storyline, like an eruptive volcano, than this novel is perfect.

Their obvious hate, which they had to call a truce to, all in the name of their best friends wedding since they were the best man and maid of honor. For those who haven’t read the previous novels in the Blacktop series, Lorelei James isn’t one to leave you hanging, (although I do highly recommend reading the other books because Lorelei is a master in her field) but back to my point of discovering Riss and Ike’s hate for one another like most things in life it stems from a lot of misconceptions and grudges best left in the past.

However, with their truce firmly in place and working together in the name of their wedding duties, for the first time ever Rissa and Ike both begin seeing each other through new eyes vs. the antagonistic goggles they’d been wearing for years. They shed a lot of misconceptions once their instant hate barbs and deflections go away

Now to add to the storyline, because theirs is a juicy bit of fodder that has been building for years, just ask the Mud Lillies who has the best backstory for these two, this whole enemies to lovers bit is just the cherry on top of a delicious Lorelei sundae. Her worlds are lush, character rich and always leave you feeling rode eight ways till Sunday and hung up wet and I love every moment since I’m back on Monday begging for more!

So, as I was saying, Larissa “Riss” Thorpe is known for her independent, stubborn, tomboy streak which runs a mile wide. As one of a few women in the trucking industry she’s worked hard and taken no prisoners to get where she’s at. It’s probably why Ike’s easy demeanor known as “Palmer the Charmer” irritates her so much. She’s clawed her way into everything she’s ever owned and done while Mr. Easy-Go-Lucky just has to charm his way into what he wants and life’s a breeze. She hates him on principle alone.

If only Riss knew the truth.

Ike isn’t the man everyone believes he is. His easy going personality is just that a personality that he puts on, especially when Riss is around. She brings something out in him and it’s something he can’t define, but he is hoping she can help him because Palmer the Charmer needs the get up and go that Riss has going on in her life. Perhaps having her under his roof is the inspiration he needs because, yes, if there wasn’t one more layer added to this book, it’s the nursemaid/roommate factor.

Riss has a serious accident that requires someone to care for her and due to the predicament that Ike has put himself in (don’t worry, I won’t give everything away, you’ll need to read why and how this all takes place) he is the perfect choice to become the one to help her out. As it turns out Ike also becomes the perfect choice to help Riss out when she is in a tight spot with her employer.

Two souls down on their luck breathe life back into each other, unknownst to those poor souls how much their differences would mean and inspire one another when they crossed paths so long ago. Racked and Stacked is beautiful, funny, sexy and Lorelei James excellent!!

Roped In To A Hot Read

Roped; Steele Ranch (Series)
by  Vanessa Vale (Author)

This review is from: March 19, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Barely escaping a loan shark who won’t take anything but her body as the interest she owes, Cricket hightails it out of town. Never expecting to run into the men she’s been dreaming about for months, the men who gave her pleasure beyond any she’s ever known; Sutton, Archer, and Lee.

Sutton met Cricket at a rodeo months ago and knew instantly she was the woman for him. After a weekend locked in a motel room exploring each other bodies, Cricket confesses a fantasy and Sutton wanting to please her, delivers. Cricket wants to enjoy multiple men at the same time. Sutton calls upon his best friends, Archer and Lee. It was only a night, but it was a night none of them would forget. The next morning Cricket was gone, no note, no number, no real name. Cricket was her nickname. They were at a dead end. The woman of their dreams vanishes into thin air.

Months later Cricket miraculously was back and these three men are determined not to let her go, no matter what kind of danger she is in.

Roped is hot, hot, hot!

I seriously try to shut off all of my reality when I’m reading any menage because I do not want to think about the laundry pile up when living in a house with three men, but holy hotness, the bedroom fantasies, I do enjoy those immensely. Vanessa Vale is a mistress of writing a hot bedroom scene.

Roped contained a riveting plot line and hot under the cover bedroom scenes. This is a continuing arc in the Steele Ranch series.

Updated 3/20/18 upon notification from author:

TANGLED is available

The retailers got all tied up (yes, pun intended) about the title, Roped. Because of this, Vanessa had to change the name of book 3 to be Tangled. It’s the same book, no changes except the title!!
It’s available in her store exclusively now, on all retailers Thursday.

Cricket is used to relying on no one but herself. Working two jobs to get through nursing school, she has no time for anything but studying and paying the bills. When three hot cowboys give her a night to remember, she believes it’s just that. One night.
