Mesa Arraguso writes about hot cowboys for a living. Being a romance writer has it perks and its drawbacks. She spends a lot of time alone in front of her computer, but she gets to fantasize about incredibly hot men wearing cowboy boots and Stetsons. While visiting San Antonio, Texas for a writer’s conference, she finds herself stranded on the back roads of Bandera only to be rescued by one of the most gorgeous men she’s ever encountered, be it fantasy or for real.
Joel Young is a cowboy. From the top of his Stetson to the tip of his dirty cowboy boots, he’s cowboy through and through. Along with rescuing women when they do silly things like running out of gas miles from town on a dirt road, he spends his days herding cattle, fixing fences and breaking horses.
Can one handsome cowboy and a city-girl from LA find common ground is the Hill Country long enough to see beyond a quick fling?
Review by Twinsie Angie
I received this book ARC from the author for an honest review.
Raise your hands if you have read a Sandy Sullivan novel? Shew!! Then you all know how hawt they are right!!!??? GREAT because this book defo doesn’t disappoint at all. I also loved the BDSM aspects of Joel and Mesa sexual relationship. I find BDSM super hawt to read!!! *blushes*
This story is about independent minded, strong willed, romance writer, Mesa who runs out of gas in the middle of a thunderstorm WHEN a flash flood is about the hit…….not good right? Did I mention she freaks in storms??? Bad sitch for Mesa until *tap tap tap* on her car window is a hot, sexy cowboy (Joel) who offers her help. The chemistry is uber thick. Both Mesa and Joel can feel the sexual tension. They try to fight it because the family has a strict “no screwing guest” rule on the dude ranch they run. Mesa writes erotic cowboy novels so she decides to stay for a few days at the ranch. Well friends what do you think happens? OF COURSE they can’t stop the attraction and damn is the sex hot. Then typical male Joel tells Mesa she is “almost the best he has ever had”….oh yes ladies he was a total douche at that point. Well Mesa was not thrilled…hell would you be???? They fight and then have some make up sex and then her time to leave has arrives. Their week is over. Both are totally head over heels in love with the other BUT are tooo afraid to admit it. So what happens you ask???? Hrmmmm guess you better just buy the book to find out. I will say i was yelling a little bit at BOTH of them for being soooooo dang stubborn!!!!!
My favorite parts of the book are when Mesa and Joel have a “food fight” of sorts while they have an argument about a misunderstanding. I also love love love Joel’s matchmaking mother Nina. She is a driving force behind this family of 9 boys.
I love the set up at the end of the book for Jess. He totally needs some love because he is a broken, unhappy cowboy. When you read about his ex-wife you will wanna hug him for his heart ache but also kick him in the balls for being an ass!! I cant wait to see him get his butt kicked by love AND see what a true loving relationship with a woman will do for him.
Sandy Sullivan is a romance author, who, when not writing, spends her time with her husband Shaun on their farm in middle Tennessee. She loves to ride her horses, play with their dogs and relax on the porch, enjoying the rolling hills of her home south of Nashville. County music is a passion of hers and she loves to listen to it while she writes.
She is an avid reader of romance novels and enjoys reading Nora Roberts, Jude Deveraux and Susan Wiggs. Finding new authors and delving into something different helps feed the need for literature. A registered nurse by education, she loves to help people and spread the enjoyment of romance to those around her with her novels. She loves cowboys so you’ll find many of her novels have sexy men in tight jeans and cowboy boots
