Being a PNR, Sci-Fi, Fantasy type of gal, there are but a handful of Contemporary Romance authors who I will endeavor to read, and Rebecca Zanetti has been given a place of honor on it! Being a real fan of her “Dark Protectors” series featuring incredibly sexy vampires, I really did not know what to expect from her first book in the “Maverick, Montana” collection about… cowboys. Well, it just goes to show that when a gifted author can truly create well written, engrossing tales with captivating characters, it really doesn’t matter what genre they write in, their stories just shine. Rebecca Zanetti is one such author.
In this first book in the series, Jake Lodge, a true, honest to goodness, knock-your-socks-off-smoldering-hot-sexy-cowboy, sweeps beautiful, Miss Independent-smart-strong-willed Sophie Smith – right off her feet. Literally! These two are drawn to each other from the get go and there is no containing the cowboy once he sets his sights on her and decides he is going to ‘keep’ her. Jake is all male, primal, dominant, and when he pursues Sophie with the clear intent to make love to her, your heart beats faster, your breath catches. He’s just so luscious.
Sophie is in Maverick to sell the locals on her company’s proposal to build a golf course, which she has designed, and to try and convince the Kooskia not to oppose it. As she prepares to present her drawings to the Tribal Elders, she is caught off guard by Jake as he proceeds to inform her that she will be meeting with him first as he is the Tribal Lawyer. From this point on, all bets are off as Sophie and Jake try their best to convince the other to see things their way, while fighting an attraction that is igniting flames that will both draw them in and consume them.
‘Against the Wall’ really has it all. It is a romance that has at its core, two very different people from backgrounds that are nothing alike, but both searching for that certain ‘something’ without realizing it. The storyline is great, the secondary characters leave you wanting more, and when you finish the book you take a deep breath and let out a low “Wow, I gotta get me a Cowboy!”
Thank you, Rebecca, for bringing your imagination to life for us to enjoy!!!

I was very disappointed in this book and actually wondered why Entangled published it. I have enjoyed most of the other books in their Brazen line, but to put it bluntly, this book was abysmal. There were so many things lacking in this book. Jake had so many aspects to his personality that his character did not psychologically make any sense, Sophie was a doormat for anyone and everyone to step on and her character was so waifish it was distracting and the dialogue was horrid. Their relationship was so rushed it was nonsensical and I found myself rolling my eyes several times and thinking, “Who does that?” I have not read other books by this author, but will probably skip them if they are anything like this one.

You often hear how difficult it is to get published, yet when I read a book such as this one I find that incredibly hard to believe. I found myself frequently asking how in the world this book ever go published, it's that bad! The book has a great deal of potential and Jake is certainly the type of alpha you want to read about, but sadly this book is lacking. The characters aren't developed enough, the romance feels ridiculously rushed, the heroine most definitely falls into the TSTL category & is the biggest doormat ever and the dialogue borders on the absurd. I so wanted to like this book, but it was impossible. Save your money and your time, and pass on this one.

## NOT GOOD. I was so disappointed in this book. The reviews were so good but I certainly can't figure out why. I didn't really like the hero or the heroine. They started off ok, but then she turned into a complete doormat. There's nothing I hate more than a weak heroine. And the hero was arrogant and manipulative. I felt no real connection between these two. There wasn't enough depth to their relationship at all. It needed to develop a whole lot more in order to be convincing. And the sex was mediocre at best. I was going to purchase Quinn's story next but after reading this one I changed my mind. Not recommended.
