My Review:
This is book #2 of the Compass Brothers series. This book is about the 2nd oldest brother, Seth, who headed South to Texas to find is place in the world working at another family ranch. He's lived and worked there for the last 10 years, since Jody was 12 years old. Jody is the daughter of the ranch owner and she has had a crush on Seth ever since he came to work at the ranch. She's never made her pursuit a secret either. Seth was warned off Jody by her father when she was 18 years old. He wanted her to finish and experience the world through college and Seth respected his wishes. But now Jody has graduated from college and is home with a fiance in tow. After a blow-up at Christmas, Jody has decided to move on with her life and not chase after Seth any longer. Now Seth wonders if he's lost his chance with her and with her father's permission, kidnaps Jody to convince her to give Seth another chance.

Jody has been in love with Seth her entire life and, although she has a fiance, she is not in love with him (there are other reasons why they are engaged.) She's been saving herself for Seth so she has an innocence, but she is also really feisty, so she is a great match for Seth and his Dom leanings. They battle and wow, is it sexy. LOTS of passion for these two. They are both strong people, but at the basis of everything is the fact that they both truly love each other desperately.

Another hot book in the Compass brothers series. While these books are really hot and sexy, they are also really emotional. I cried several times throughout this book and for me, that is always a sign of a really good book. But I also laughed out loud a lot too. There is a scene when Seth is video-chatting with his brothers on the computer. They can see glimpses of Jody in the background and the entire scene was simply hilarious...so fun and funny!

At the basis of all these books is family and I really like that about them. These boys are close and although, they have all gone different directions away from their home ranch, they all remain extremely tight to each other and their parents.

A really fabulous book. I love all 4 of the Compass Brothers. They have such a great relationship between all 4 of them and it's so fun to see them each find their loves. There is a LOT of stress to come for this family and watching them pull together even more is going to be heartwrenching. Now I am just waiting for book #3, Eastern Ambitions, due out in November.

2nd Compass Brothers story...Just meh...

Book about 2nd Compton brother, Seth. Very tame compared to first book (strictly m/f with no menage but some BDSM elements).

Wasn't too crazy about this one. Jody, the heroine was very young and immature. This has always been my least favorite type of storyline....
Book about 2nd Compton brother, Seth. Very tame compared to first book (strictly m/f with no menage but some BDSM elements).

Wasn't too crazy about this one. Jody, the heroine was very young and immature. This has always been my least favorite type of storyline. Unfortunately, she doesn't really develop during the story and towards the end demonstrates a major lack of maturity when first she jumps to an erroneous conclusion about the motives of the hero despite sound advice from her father to check the facts before she flies off the handle and then lets herself be manipulated into following the hero to Wyoming and potentially embarrassing herself in front of his entire family which in my opinion, she does an admirable job of doing.

Seth has been in Texas for about 10 years working on Jody’s daddy's ranch. She has been away at college in New York which you would think would mean she accrued some much needed common sense but alas, this is not the case. Another head scratcher is that for whatever reason, Seth has rarely, if ever been home to Wyoming. I couldn't see the reason for this as he comes from a close-knit family with little or no major conflict with his parents, brothers, or anyone else in Wyoming.

In the end a lack of empathy for either character pretty much left me cold on this story. Here’s hoping the 2 remaining books kindle a little more heat with more likeable characters.
