The man’s arrogance and sexy drawl push all her buttons, making her wonder what he’s hiding beneath his cowboy swagger.
Matt Gentry walked away from the past and shies from the future. No ties means no one gets hurt…until the boss’s daughter, a hot, green-eyed blonde, tempts him to break his own rules.
When tragedy strikes, will building tension and pride destroy their growing attraction or show them the way home?
Review: At only 76 pages this was a novella that had a lot packed into it. Ally and Matt had immediate chemistry both on the phone and once they met. Matt had reservations since she was the boss’ daughter. She had reservations since he was the foreman of Daddy’s ranch. But eventually neither one let that get in the way. It was interesting to start and end the story in New York with Wyoming sandwiched in between. Ally’s boss Daniel was a piece of work and not someone I would want to work for. The descriptions of the ranch and the horses were vivid. The thoroughbred purchased to be a stud to a couple of the mares took an instant liking to Ally and his actions were fun to watch until he was spooked. There was family, friends, the ranch, doubt, misgivings, sadness, hurt, happiness, laughter and tears along with romance and love. Matt had secrets that only he could reveal and in time he did. There was nice closure but an epilogue would have been nice.
Ames is a new to me author and I look forward to reading her other books especially since I like western romances and cowboys.
Favorite Quote: She left the corral at mid-morning to make them lunch, amazed at how comfortable she felt in his company. Her insides were stretched tighter than a rubber band. He gave off a male vibe she simply couldn’t resist. It might be her imagination, but he seemed as taken with her, and she secretly smiled. There was no denying it, she wanted the man in every way she could think of and probably some ways she shouldn’t. However, there was the potential issue of another woman in his life, which gave her cause for concern.
