After being betrayed by her con man ex-fiancé, Kyla Bennett nurses a broken heart. But Kyla's friends have other ideas and when they whisk her off to Whisper Creek, a dude ranch staffed by cowboys so hot they dim the Montana sunset, all Kyla wants to do is hide under a quilt. Then in rides Decker Driscoll. He’s hauling about as much emotional baggage as Kyla, but when he stands close by, both of them want to stay close—and begin to succumb to an undeniable attraction.
After experiencing personal tragedy, Decker never thought he’d see Big Sky country again. But now that his family's Whisper Creek property is in deep with a Vegas gambler, Decker’s back for the summer—and spending all his time running from “cowgirls” who come to the dude ranch to score some dudes. Then he meets Kyla, a kindred spirit who brings on a stampede of protective feelings . . . and a powerful hankering to sear her with a new brand of love.
This book gave me the warm fuzzies, I immediately connected with Kyla and all of her bad luck. Through in one very hot cowboy and a hilarious cast of unique characters and some characters I loved to hate and it was the perfect book for my mood. Definitely a nice break from the spicier books I’ve been reading, Kyla and Decker are seriously attracted, but have both been burned in their past and that past just keeps popping up and saying Boo!.
The added intrigue of the Whisper Creek ranch being in trouble, to add just the right level of stress to Decker’s life to make pursuing like such a bad idea, and with his very own Malibu Barbie out to ruin the attraction between him and Kyla, it’s definitely a comedy of errors watching these two figure out that they both love each other after only such a short amount of time, which really works for these characters.
I was left with the warm fuzzies because I easily believed in them falling in love that fast, since the love of land and the same values tie them together. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a sweet, sassy romance full of cowboys and a bit of comedy that keeps you guessing on what will go wrong next.
I received the book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review.
