The Polar Bear's Fake Mate (Shifters of Rawr County Book 1) by [Sophie Stern]

One bear. One human. One big, fat lie.

Justin
You’d think that with a backstory like mine, the idea of taking a mate is unbelievable. You’d be right. The only reason I’m agreeing to this entire “mates” thing is so that my mother gets off my back, my shareholders are happy, and I continue moving forward in my career. I’m the face of a multi-billion dollar company. I don’t need any scandals in my midst.

Rebecca
The offer is for one year. One year of pretending to be this guy’s mate, and then we can have a quiet divorce. He just needs his shareholders off of his back, and me? Well, I’d like to not starve to death. Only, there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to Justin. He might have money and brains and incredibly good looks, but there’s a secret that lurks behind those beautiful eyes.

And I intend to find out what it is.

THE POLAR BEAR’S FAKE MATE is the first book in SHIFTERS OF RAWR COUNTY: a new shifter series from Sophie Stern. There is no cheating and a guaranteed HEA for our happy couple. You may also want to check out THE DRAGON’S CHRISTMAS TREASURE for a sneak peek at life in Rawr County!

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

Justin is a playa. His mom is on him to find a wife and settle down.  The business cannot handle all the negative press from his playboy ways.  He is not happy about this but places an ad for a fake wife.  He figures get married for a year and boom be free.  I mean how bad can it be right??  When he sees Rebecca, he and his bear know they are in trouble!!!  BIG BIG trouble!!

Rebecca needs a place to live.  She sees and ad for a marriage. Good Money.  Place to stay for a year.  What can go wrong with this deal right???  AND then Justin appears in the elevator……..

I love love love this series. I have been reading the RAWR County Shifters out of order and don’t care.  LOL  I started late and am loving seeing the couples I know getting together.  I totally enjoyed the twists that Sophie has in each book.  I mean we need a little drama so we know that the HEA will be that much better right!!  If you like shifters, these books will satisfy you in every way possible!!!

100% this series is such a great read.  I loved Rebecca and Justin’s story.  Especially when I actually met them in book 4 they were so happy and in love.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I was given this book by the author for an honest review 

Charlie just wanted a fresh start, new relationship in a new place, after her boyfriend of 2 years pulled the ultimate Legally Blonde move and took her to a fancy dinner where she hoped he was going to pop the question only to be broken up with. So Charlie’s uncle offered her a job at his dentist office in Mason Creek and she took it 6 months later her bestie told her she needed to try some dating apps and well 3 failed dates later and a good laugh for the good looking bartender and she was done sating until the good looking bartender came into her office and offered to show her what a real date is supposed to be like. But with that will these two catch feelings or will it be another fail.

Author Jennifer Miller was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois but now calls Arizona home. After winning a school writing contest at the young age of nine, when she wrote a book about a girl and her pet unicorn (her spirit animal), she dreamed of writing a book of her own. The important lesson she learned about dreams is that they don’t simply fall into your lap – you have to chase them yourself. Her greatest role however is that of a wife and mother. When she’s not writing you’ll likely find her loudly cheering on her daughters at their basketball games, spending time with those she loves, or up to shenanigans with her bestie.

#review #partofaseries More Than a Memory ( Cole Creek 2) by Molly McLain 

More Than A Memory is a small town, brother’s best friend, second chance romance!

Now my life is in danger and he’s the only one who can offer the protection I need.

I hate being so vulnerable, so weak…

But if I’m going to bare my secrets to anyone, it’s him. Even if he hates me for them.

-Aiden-

I would have risked it all for her, but she quit before she ever gave us a chance.

We’re more than a memory.

#WOTR22 #FakeRelationship #Shifters #Paranormal #StandAlones #Series – The Lion’s Fake Wife, Rawr County Series by Sophie Stern

The Lion's Fake Wife (Shifters of Rawr County Book 2) by [Sophie Stern]

One lion. One human. One important lie.

Melinda
I don’t have much going for me until I see an ad in the local newspaper. Wanted: one bride. It seems like a total scam except for the fact that it’ll get me out of Kansas. After dealing with my past, I’m more than happy to claim this Get Out of Kansas Free card. After spending a year in prison, staying married to a CEO for half of a year doesn’t seem too bad, now does it? Yeah, some weird things seem to happen in Rawr County and the people there aren’t exactly welcoming to outsiders, but it can’t be all bad…can it?

Basil
I’ll do whatever it takes to improve my image at the company. Apparently, my shareholders don’t look too fondly on the fact that I’ve been something of a playboy in recent years. All that’s about to change, though, because I’m getting married. The moment I see Melinda, I know that she’s the one. My inner-lion knows, too. She’s not just the woman I’m going to marry for the sake of improving my personal image. She’s the one I’m going to marry because she’s my fated mate.

Only, Melinda doesn’t know I’m a shifter, and she’s got a few secrets of her own. When an enemy from her past resurfaces in Rawr County, we’re going to have some hard decisions to make. We’re going to have to fight for what we believe in, and we’re going to have to fight for her safety. Luckily for Melinda, I love a good challenge.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I received this book form the author for an honest review.

This book!!!  EEEP.  After I read The Dragon’s Fake Fiancée and loved it Sophie offered me more books if I wanted them.  I screamed YEEESSSS!!  Now this series is interconnected by the characters but can be read in any order.  I mean I started with book 6 and am now reading backwards.  You wont miss anything at all.  The men are the main characters and we see them in each other books.

I loved Basil in Cosmos book, so I wanted to start with his book first.  Basil is a big wig CEO who also likes to party big. When yet another round of pictures shows up in the gossip column he decides he needs to do something before the stock holders begin to loose faith in him since he is a bit on the “wild side” in her personal life.  He tells everyone “Hey can’t I live it up at my Bachelor party??”   Stunned is the consensus.  Everyone is like “Whu?”  SO off Basil runs to find a fake wife to make him look “stable.”

Melinda is living is a run down craptastic motel when she sees an ad for a fake bride.  She needs cash, a place to stay, and a good hiding spot from her ex, Shane.  She replies to the ad thinking never in a million years would anyone like her reply and then gets the shock of her life when Basil calls her for the job….Oh Captain…LOL  read her email and you will understand.

From the minute they talk, everything is different and then when they see each other….Oh man….it all changes and Basil needs more from Melinda and she too needs more from Basil.  They are stumbling into this fake but real but fake relationship until it all comes crashing down.

I absolutely loved Melinda and Basil…my fav scene is the engagement bathroom scene…wink wink.  I can’t wait to read more because these men are truly captivating.

Accidental P*rnstar by [Cindy  Tanner]

AMAZON BuyLink

My college career was going great…

Until it wasn’t.

I lost my job, scholarship, and apartment in a trifecta of crap luck.

The last thing I want to do is run back home to my parents with my tail tucked. As luck would have it, my old roommate, Mason Davis, has a compelling—if slightly unorthodox solution—to my financial dilemma.

His suggestion?

A live stream feed of me enjoying a little steamy fun with HIM. The smoking hot guy I’ve fantasized about countless times before.

Surely, a tenacious bookworm like me can figure out how to let go of her inhibitions for one night.

After all, going viral is a good thing… right?

ANGIE Review

I received this book from the author for free for an honest review.

Lawd ya’ll when Cindy showed me the title for this book I was cracking up. I couldn’t wait to read it. When she asked if I wanted an ARC…legit I jumped. I am so glad I did. This book has so many amazing lines and scenes. I was giggling on my chair on the deck. I legit gave the “Why are you looking at me” stare to my husband when he was all “Lets do something.” UHM NO Jules and Mason are making a PORN! LOL
SO Jules and Mason lived together with a snot and Mason moved out long before Jules. She was all kinds of a mess because on top of losing her housing she needs a job. She is at the club whichis never does and is drinking. She makes a fool of herself a couple times and thankfully Noah is there for them. LOL Jules and Mason reconnect and he offers her a room in his condo. Ya know the one he has also ready paid for. Well the comedy of what happens just needs to be read but needless to say Jules is not about t move in when…again …she has zero place to go.
Jules moves in and then Mason tells her is secret…ya know he does ALLFANS>>>GASP!! I know right!! SO after a quick chat he says he would love to scene with her for a cool $5K. When a girl is down a girl needs to do some drastic measures.
SO Mason and Jules start to blur the line between roommates/dating couple/work mates. They have some misunderstanding, jealousy, miscommunication, and of course a dash of “You trying to steal my girl”!!
The story was perfect. It was a great read and for sure I want a book on Mel and Noah.

Till Death Do Us Part (An Ariel Kimber Novel Book 7) by [Mary  Martel ]

AMAZON buy link

Ariel Kimber and her coven are under imminent threat from the Council. They are monsters, without fangs or horns, who hide behind their mantle of power, and they will do anything to get what they want.

The problem is, they want Ariel. They want her so badly that every other person around her is in danger just by being near her.

The Council forgot one very important fact though—Ariel Kimber is no victim. She’s a survivor, and the Council is stupid to think they can simply take her and destroy everything and everyone she loves.

She will do whatever it takes to keep her coven safe, even if she has to go through hell to do it. They are all more than willing to fight alongside her because she’s finally agreed to spend the rest of her life tied to them in every way possible.

They have a lot to fight for.

The goal is to make it to the other side without losing anyone along the way because they want their happily ever after.

And they want to be able to say till death do us part.

But life for Ariel Kimber is never that easy.

And it never will be.

ANGIE’s Review –

I received this book from the author for free for an honest review by that sexy bitch Mary Martel.

Between texting Mary to yell at her and texting her to sob to her…this book was everything fans of the series want to read. There is so much that happens in this book to move the story forward and answer questions but start so many new ones.
I am so afraid to spoiler this book that I am going to keep my review kinda vague in parts. I want you to be just as devasted and excited as I was. Lemme just say prepare for Chapters 14-17 because they are so heavy. My stomach was in KNOT…KNOTS…..tears….heartbreak….guys…so much happens in this part of the book.
Now don’t go thinking the rest of the book isn’t important because LAWD it is. There are so many parts of the book I need to discuss like Rain, Romero, and Isobel. I mean Jesus these 3. The crazy triangle!!!
Can I saw Q and Ariel arguing are pretty epic and as always hilarious for you the reader. Q is my favorite of the coven guys and of course he is an epic fuck up with his girl and understanding when she needs girly stuff. But I love Damien and Jules more this novel. Jules for standing up to Rain and Damien for understanding Ariel and her girl ways. Tyson is the best friend we need and love. Dash…sigh,,,he is just sensitive Dash. The twins made my heart so happy in this book. They open up and really show us how much they love being loved by Ariel. They understand her fears and do everything to let her know she is perfect for them.
The Council…guys…so much shit happens this book and shit will reverberate after shit that happens this book. I am so nervous and excited for what will happen after this book. GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Vague reviews so as to not post spoilers!!!!!! Its so tough!!! But I need you to be just as devastated and broken as I was!
There was a new character introduced…..friends……your heart….it will be destroyed and yet it will make everything right with the coven. Does that make sense? It will trust me. I loved and hated this character. Loved them because of who they are but hated their back story. If they are involved in the Council it cant be a good one right????
As always I am a needy reader and want so much more. I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

Rebel (Alumbra Pack Book 1) by [AJ Renee, Angie Wade]

AMAZON buy link

He’d long given upon finding his mate, but when he does, is she too broken to trust their bond?
Meeting boys after curfew should have been innocent fun, but it turned Rosalia’s life upside down. Escaping the werewolf compound wasn’t an option, so she did her best to survive the twisted hell she’d been dragged to. Her dreams of having a real chance at life had been smothered by guilt and the realization she was too broken, even if she ever did see her loved ones again.
Peter had nearly given up on finding his true mate, but a mission to rescue a pack member’s sister leads him to Rosalia. If he’d known why she’d been impossible to locate, he would have left the pack in his beta’s care and moved mountains to save her sooner.
He must find the strength to rein in his wolf’s need to claim her and give her the necessary space to heal. Her body, heart, and wolf are at odds, with merely a thin string keeping her tattered spirit from coming apart. Can Rosalia learn to trust Peter, or are the jagged, invisible scars too deep?

Angie’s Review –

I purchased this book.
I LOVED PETER!! I mean I have loved him since meeting him in the Broderick series. You do not have to read the Broderick series to read this book OR the following books in the series BUT I highly suggest it so you understand the relationships.
Peter…he is the best alpha. He loves his pack and those he deems pack like the witches in the Broderick coven. He is fierce in protecting those he loves. He is happy with his life, but he yearns for his mate. He is happy for Brandy and her siblings but…yeah why can’t he find HERE!!! Our calm cool alpha is outta his mind lately and he is not sure WHY. He can’t focus and is just hot tempered which is not Peter. When the pack and the coven go to save some women, he is beyond mad to see his mate there…in the room of abused and battered women AND a sister to Claudia.
Rosalie is the brave one of the group. She has done lots of things that many would find disgusting to survive abuse and horrors. When she realizes they are being rescued and its by her sister, she is overjoyed and then…..she sees him. The large wolf is her mate. She is scared given she has seen how alpha tend to treat women.
Rosie and Peter have a lot to overcome but Peter becomes more the man we know and love. He is doing everything to make sure she knows she is safe and wanted no matter what she as been through. He is doing everything to put her at ease to him and his caring. The waters these two navigate was pretty wicked at times but Peter never faulters. GUYS I loved him even more!!! GAH!! PETER!!!
I am so excited for this series and absolutely love that the Brodericks are just as front and center in this series as Peter’s pack was in their story. But I really wanna know whats up with Xander but Lea and Joel!! EEEEP!!!!
I cannot wait!!

The Dragon's Fake Fiancée (Shifters of Rawr County Book 6) by [Sophie Stern]

AMAZON buy link

Cosmo has been living in Rawr County for the last 10 years because he hates himself and wants to be miserable. Dragon Isle was no good for him. Everyone there was too happy and joyful. A dragon like him deserves to be unhappy.

When his family tries to set him up with a childhood friend to date, he blurts out a lie: he’s engaged.

It’s not true.

But when they surprise him with an unexpected visit, he grabs his nearest employee, Athena, and introduces her as his fiancée.

What could possibly go wrong?

Angie’s Review –

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

Ok here goes. So Sophie is about the most adorable person I have ever met. I have read several of her alter ego books but have been looking to sink my teeth into on of these books but life man…not enough time in the day, right? SO, she offered this ARC and I jumped. Its in a “series” but all the books can be read in any order. I didn’t have any issues reading the 3 or 4th book in the series. Every side character was briefly introduced and then off we went.
Cosmo and Athena…. holy hawt burn. Holy pants melting off…. holy office spankings. Oh yeah you read that right…. OFFICE. SPANKING!
Ok ok so the Office Spanking was to get you hooked now lets really get down to the story, shall we??
Cosmo is a grumpy…..errrr……brooding dragon. His friends are all mating up and he is in love with his secretary who is in love with Benjamin. UGH Gross Benny. Anyway, he looks forward to seeing her every single day. Since she is his paralegal, it does happen all the time.
Althena is head over heels in love with her boss. Ya know, the dragon. She does everything can can to be close to him like going back to school to be a paralegal. She is so afraid of looking like the pathetic girl she is, and maybe in hopes of making him jealous, she makes but a boyfriend.
One phone call and visit from Cosmo’s family changes EVERYTHING for them. Cosmos mom and dad want him to come home to meet another chick to possible settle him down on Dragon Isle to have some dragon babies. Cosmo is not down with this idea, so he throws Athena under the bus and she goes along with it.
I mean they live together for a week and pretend to be getting married. They know so much about the other how can it go wrong?? LAWD the feelings that come rolling off each of them not knowing how the other really feels. The chemistry was so thick but the slow burn…….I almost combusted!!!
This story was sooooo good. I sat and devoured it in a couple hours. Now I need to grab the other books in the series and I am so looking forward to Jennifer, The Red Panda’s book with Lewis!!!

Outcast (The Pack Prophecy Book 1) by [R.L. Caulder]

AMAZON buy link

“The arrival of the Prophetess will bring both hope and destruction for the wolves of the world.

She alone will be able to save them–or damn them.”

The dark prophecy that has been passed down since the first pack of shifters is coming to fruition– and I am at the center of it.

An orphaned human taken in by a pack of wolves. The fate of their existence in my hands.

I’ve been treated as the dirt beneath the pack’s paws for years.

Will they be able to accept my new role when my powers surface? Will I be able to forgive them enough to help them?

The bright spot amongst all the turmoil…finding my three fated. Until one of them rejects our bond.

The one thing I know for sure…death is coming for us all, soon, and the person responsible for it? Their betrayal is going to alter the shifter world forever.

I’ll conquer my powers, protect the packs, and live happily ever after with my men, right?

Wrong.

No one is prepared for the vile truths of my visions to come to light.

***

Author Note: This book has a 18+ warning and is intended for mature audiences. It is book one in The Pack Prophecy series which will end in a cliffhanger.

Angie’s Review –

I purchased this book and audio,

The narration of the story *Chef’s Kiss* was absolutely perfect. Heather and Jeffrey brought the characters to life 110%. I will be honest in that I LOVE Jeffrey’s audio and when I see his name, I am super excited.

I grabbed this book because R. L. Caulder will be attending a book signing I am going too. She has so many books to pick BUT this one had audio. It was the winner. I gotta admit chance is why I grabbed the book, but I am so addicted to Kira and her men.
I loved the fact this book was kinda a shifter’s version of Cinderella…I mean she is a gross human the Alpha and his wife, Maya, took in. But once the Alpha’s mate was killed by daimoma, he blames her and is keeping her in misery to punish her.
Kira had only known happiness the few years she was with Jameson and his mother, Maya. Once Maya was killed she was only bullied and teases horrible by all the wolves in the pack Jameson and Sophia were the worst ones to her. There was only one bright spot in her day. Milo always would protect her. He has made it clear he has feelings for her, but she knows once the full moon hits when he turns 21 just like the rest of the pack, he will find his mate and forget her. She guards her heart and hopes one day she can find happiness too.
The closer the pack comes to the next full moon, Kira notices Seth, Jameson’s bestie, looking at her like a pork chop. She is angry that NOW he admits he has feelings. Sorry Seth not happening. Kira does as she is always expected to do when the full moon hits and everyone changes….even KIRA!!!??? Milo, Seth, AND Jameson all run to her because they feel the pull to their “Fated Mate”. The wolves all see who for her she is but the men have issue except Milo. Seth soon realizes he needs to listen to his wolf but Jameson…well he is a dick. Mega dick who is so blinded with hatred for Kira.
Kira soon learns she is has the powers to save the shifters but a cliffy happens when she soon discovers what is happening and who is leading the daimoma.
I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

Concede: Knights of Paradise MC by [S.J.  Chaynie ]

This book releases TOMORROW July 1st!!

AMAZON Buy Link 

I’ve spent the last four years in a Catholic boarding school. A very different world from the one I have found myself being forced into. There is a dangerous game being played, and I haven no choice but to be under his protection. He’s the king, and expects me to bow just like all the others. The more he demands, the more I resist. He’s not just too old for me, or just the president of a motorcycle club. He’s my brother’s best friend, and if he wants me as his queen, he better prove he’s worthy enough for me to put on the crown.

This is an adult novel intended for mature readers.
Book 1 of the Knights of Paradise MC Series. Does end on a cliffhanger, part of a continuing series.

Angie’s Review –

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

First up, I saw a booktok trailer and was like “HEEEEY GIRL” to the authors.  I essentially asked nicely…cough cough begged…..for an ARC of this book.  MC is my JAM and it sounded like something I would love.  It hits all my favs…Best friend’s sibling/age gap/MC.  I was super thrilled when she said YES.  I got the book and downloaded thinking I would get a chapter or two in before I put it down to do housework.  PFT Housework be damned.  Maverick and Tanner had my FULL attention, but I was side eyeing Dom and Dani.  Don’t worry I got questions you two!!

Now I know people are haters for cliffhangers, but I love them.  I really do.  So, I will warn you this is a cliffy but it’s a good one.  Does that make sense?  Prolly not for you cliffy haters.  But for real, I loved it and where it dropped at is a good ending/beginning for the next story.

Ok so Maverick/Zeke and Tanner/Vix.  This book runs you through the gamete.  Tanner starts to story as a wide-eyed boarding school virgin with no idea who her brother is and especially what a MC Club is.  When the story cliffies, we see a strong woman who know what she wants and who she wants.  My favorite scene of the book is when she has had it with Maverick’s shit.  For Real!!  Our girl is over it and she tells him what is up.  It is up to him to make the changes because she is DONZO.  But my next favorite scene is when they are bed shopping for his room…Maverick is a dirty dirty boy!!!  He plays soooo dirty to get what he wants, and that is Tanner!

Maverick is the MC president, and he loves the lifestyle.  He doesn’t think he should settle down and honestly doesn’t really have any intensions.  However, Tanner makes him want more and importantly makes him FEEL more.  The feelings she causes in him are powerful and super confusing to the manwhore.

Now Dom is Tanners brother who is all “Hand off” buuuuut dude uhm you don’t seem to be keeping your hands off Mavericks little sister, Dani.  Pot Meet Kettle!!  I can’t wait to see what happens in book 2.  I think Mr. Dom is getting the much-needed eye opener he needs to claim what his heart desires most!

#BookPromo #BookBlitz Scandal: A Driven World Novel (The Driven World) by J.L. Baldwin

An installment of The Driven World by K. Bromberg. Dive into a new, never before seen story and new characters with cameos from the characters you already know and love.


A female racer set on defying the odds, a famous playboy set on ruining her reputation, an attraction neither one can deny

Kellie

Kellie was a rebel without a cause, a defiant force to be reckoned with, and everything her parents feared she’d grow up to be.
Defying the odds and breaking the rules. On and off the track. That was Kellie’s motto for life. Being a female race car driver in what’s considered a male-dominated profession has given her some challenges in life.
But when a wrench is suddenly thrown into the path of her dreams, she decides to take matters into her own hands and not bend down to anybody.

Ashton

Ashton has had his fair share of rules. Growing up as the son of a famous indie race car driver, he has been at the epicenter of the media his whole life.
Things take a sudden turn when Ashton catches Kellie, his old high school “acquaintance” in a rather compromising position, then the perfect plan started to form.

Blackmailing Kellie into a fake relationship was the only way to get what he wanted and that was to get the media off his back and his playboy ways. Even if fighting him every step of the way and letting him see that fire inside of her made him fall harder each and every day, pretending to fake the feelings he developed might just veer him off track of his perfect plan all together.

J.L. Baldwin’s Scandal is an adrenaline pumping, fast paced, sexy contemporary romance written in K. Bromberg’s Driven Worlds project.

#NewRelease #FriendsToLovers – The Easy Part, Perfect for You book #3 by Amanda Siegrist

The Easy Part (Perfect for You, #3)

From USA Today bestselling author Amanda Siegrist comes a series full of humor, angst, a sassy heroine, and a sexy, sinful hero that will sweep you off your feet.

The Agreement: Pretend to be her fake fiancé to placate her overbearing, selfish mother.
Timeframe: Five days.

Brick likes things carefree and simple, especially after the falling out with his brother. The moment Jezebelle walks into his bar looking sad and troubled, he’s determined to do anything to turn her frown upside down. Even if that requires posing as her fake fiancé to get her bossy mother off her back. Pretending to love her will be the easy part—because he does. Walking away will be futile. But he doesn’t see a way he can keep Jezebelle for real, not when her mother’s diabolical ways prove she can make his life more than just complicated, but downright impossible.

Jezebelle can’t believe her luck when Brick hatches this crazy plan. One, because she’s always had a secret crush on him, and any reason to get closer to him makes her heart stutter with anticipation. Two, because it might actually work to keep her mother at bay.

#ReleaseDay #Series – Perfect Secret, Mason Creek Book #12 by Molly McLain

Perfect Secret (Mason Creek #12)

A fake relationship with a sexy cowboy in a small-town is never a good idea…

-Alana-

After high school, my plan was to leave the small town of Mason Creek and never look back. I thought I’d work my way through college while my long-time, bull rider boyfriend chased his rodeo dreams and took me along for the ride.

My own dreams of becoming his publicist and living the high life together on the PBR circuit were crushed when it became clear that my eight seconds was up. The buckle bunnies were suddenly more appealing than the girl with her nose buried in the books.

I’ve sworn off men, especially cowboys and bull riders.

That is, until I walk in on one in my shower, naked, wet, and built like he could break my heart… and my bed.

-Holden-

The rodeo has been my whole world, and all it took was one false accusation to bring it crumbling down. I cleared my name, but the organization I’ve given my life and my body to for the past seven years doesn’t give a damn. They don’t want the drama and right now they don’t want me.

That’s how I ended up in Mason Creek, hiding from the cameras while the dust settles and I can reclaim my reputation and my rank in the PBR. The last thing I need is to get messed up with a local girl, especially one who hates cowboys–bull riders in particular.

Our relationship may be just for show, but I see the opportunity for what it is…The chance to keep my secret a little longer and prove to Alana that maybe her problem with bull riders is simple…

She hasn’t ridden the right one yet.
