    "He never saw her coming....."

    To say sensual would be putting it mildly when describing Vicki Lewis Thompson's , Ambushed! The entire journey from cover to cover was "blazing hot" for these two past classmates, from Wyoming.-----

    Morgan O'Connelli had traveled from town to town with her parents and her seven siblings. When they stayed in the small town in Wyoming for a brief time, Morgan wanted to make the most of it by getting involved in her high schools activities because other than that all she had was the job of taking care of her brothers and sisters. She loved the town so much, once she graduated from college she returned to Shoshone to set down the roots that were so important to her. So she purchased a home and started up a real estate business. Selling homes to families was important to her. She even entered the 4th of July Parade riding a horse and advertising the grand opening of her office. When the horse acted up, she was rescued by Gabe Chance a handsome cowboy she knew years ago, a young man she had a crush on, a young handsome, sexy man she had thought about over the years. In fact so much so, when she returned back to Shoshone she checked on his marital status.-----

    While riding in the parade, Gabe Chance noticed a beautiful well endowed redhead, someone he remembered from high school. And now she was having problems with a horse she was riding, so he set out to rescue her. She was so sweet and sexy and she stirred things in him. She also was so enchanting in the way she was participating in the towns activities, her first Fourth of July celebration and she was going to make the best of it and Gabe decided her enthusiasm was contagious. That's not all that was contagious, her smile, her sparking eyes, her figure and her determination to belong which he suspected was do to her past. So, as Gabe was home for awhile and not entered in any riding competitions, he decided to make the best of it and show Morgan a good time and if they ended up in bed together, all the better. Then all hell broke loose when they entered a watermelon eating contest and she won and he kissed her and couldn't stop kissing her. Talk about fireworks!-----

    This was a most amazing romantic and sensual journey and I absolutely couldn't put it down. The Chance family, their brothers, their friends made the story come more alive in book 2, Ambushed. The loss of their father had caused such grief and in a way had caused the bothers from time to time to challenge each other. Not to mention their mother's grief. At first Gabe's mother and his older brother didn't trust Morgan as they believed Morgan being a real estate agent had motives. Add to the mix that Morgan and Gabe wanted to only have a little fun which turned into a hot and steamy relationship, one neither were ready for. On top of that the family arguments over the Chance Ranch's future and Morgan's doubts about taking the relationship further muddied the waters. Morgan and Chance's short affair was absolutely explosive!-----

    Ambushed was about trust, coming home and in taking a "chance". It was a wonderful love story and a wonderful addition to The Sons of Chance Miniseries. My sincere congratulations to Vicki Lewis Thompson on this particular love story as it was most amazing!-----

    Great Book!

    Originally posted at: www.longandshortreviews.blogspot.com ***** A blast from his past will shoot this cowboy into his future if he'd just get on his horse and ride.

    Well, that's what Gabe wants to do, ride his horse into the Hall of Fame. A few things are in his way however. But it's a figurative type of riding I'm referring to. I had a rollicking good time reading this book and I enjoyed every page turn.

    First, I want to say that this book is part of a series about three brothers. I didn't get to read the first but in no way did that detract from my reading Ambushed!. It stands on its own strengths which are all about Gabe and Morgan.

    As for Gabe, he's a man who has a dream and has been pursuing it for a long time. At this point in the story, he finds that everything he's worked for is about to be derailed from an unexpected source and it's causing havoc. I got to see Gabe's character grow in this story. He has to face uncertainty and adversity which force him to reconsider his place in the family, his goals in life and what actions he is willing to take to make what he wants happen. I saw his strength and integrity when he stood up to those who would beat him down, or attacked the character of another person. Another aspect of Gabe I enjoyed was his sense of fun, daring and his sometimes goofy dialogue. Of course the one thing guaranteed to make a focused man act loopy is a woman, and what a woman she is.

    Morgan is that blast from Gabe's past that I referred to earlier. She's the high school cutie who he'd have approached if he'd been a free agent but never got the chance. She is the girl who had a wicked crush on him back then and is about to find out if it was puppy love or something more. The only trait that Morgan and Gabe's courtship shares with a puppy is its cuteness and "awww" factor.

    Morgan embodies fun. Her character totally delighted me and that included how she came to have her last name, O'Connelli. It's as unusual as she is and she is the perfect opposite to Gabe. They do have one thing in common however and that is the ability to focus on a goal and make it happen. Her dream is a bit more emotional and sad. All Morgan wants is a home, a place where she can set down roots because she's never known what that feels like. She's upbeat, stubborn and usually can roll with the punches. She's noble too because she's willing to do whatever it takes to do the best thing for the man she loves, even if it hurts.

    Ambushed! is not all full of angst and mired in self-destructive behaviors. The conflict is mostly internal between Gabe facing what he wants for his future and Morgan's place in it; and Morgan's wanting everything but being willing to settle for less just so she can have a home. I'll let readers find out what kinds of things she's willing to keep or let go. Again, her choices illustrate what a really wonderful person she is.

    One of the aspects that Ms. Thompson imbued this book with is humor. I'm talking the knee-slapping, giggling, snickering kind of humor that will cause a reader to laugh out loud no matter where they are reading this book. I caution a reader to not sneak reading this at work because of it. I even re-read the scene with the bug spray more than once because it had great comedic timing and I could see it so vividly in my mind. It has to be one of the funniest things I've ever read about using simple bug repellent.
