Overview

Out of work mechanic Ty Lewis is homeless and desperate to find work. Answering a classified ad for a job in Harney County, Oregon, Ty accepts when he is offered the position. Saying goodbye to his sister and his life in Portland, he heads off to the tiny community of Riley to begin a new adventure, unsure about his boss Lex Ryan, a man he has yet to speak with or meet.
Lexi Ryan, known to her ranch hands and neighbors as Lex Jr., leaves a successful career in Portland to keep the Rockin’ R Ranch running smoothly after the untimely death of her father. It doesn’t take long to discover her father did a lot of crazy things during the last few months before he died, like hiding half a million dollars that Lexi can’t find.
Ty and Lexi are both in for a few surprises as he arrives at the Rockin’ R Ranch and begins learnin’ the ropes.

An excerpt:
“I thought you said you’re starving,” Lexi whispered, not quite sure what Ty was thinking.
“I am,” Ty said, his voice dropping in pitch as he held her tightly to his chest. “Starving for you. Famished for your kisses. Hungry for your arms around me. Dying to taste every little bit of you.”

    This was a very cute love story, and I enjoyed reading it. The plot moved along at a steady pace, and the characters were interesting enough to hold my attention well. I did somewhat identify with the main characters in the sense that I completely understand their instant connection to each other, as I have experience it myself, so that aspect of the book was very sweet and personal to me.

    I did not give it 5 stars for a couple reasons... The characters were interesting but also were somewhat flat, as the main characters were exceptionally good with no deviations from that, no bad qualities at all. Also, there was an excess amount of description of the two main character's attractive features, and nearly every other line was either one of them falling over in hot fits at how attractive the other was (though it was not an erotica, only some kisses between the main characters).

    The plotline itself was interesting enough, though I felt more time could have been spent on some aspects of it, such as the "treasure hunt" the two main characters find themselves in the midst of. There were also several back stories and subplots that I think could have been fleshed out more to up the stakes and my investment in the story, as a reader. There was quite a bit of jumping between viewpoints with little or no warning, and that detracted a bit from the story itself.

    I did like how each chapter was prefaced with a nugget of "cowboy wisdom" that pertained to the chapter, which I thought was an interesting and unique addition to the story. All in all, it was a fun, sexy love story and an enjoyable read. I had as much fun reading it as I'm sure the author had writing it.

    Oh my! I just love this book! It brought tears to my eyes many times and laughter followed along, throughout the book. I enjoyed the cowboy wisdom (quotes) before each chapter. I really love the hero and heroine in this book, but I have yet to read a book by Shanna Hatfield that I didn't love the hero and heroine. They are so likeable you have to root for them and a hea. A lot of engaging secondary characters, you can't help but like and hate to let them go at the end of the book. A nice long finish to the story not rushed, which leaves you very happy and satisfied with the ending. A very romantic and clean read. JudyE
