It’s all in her head. Until she falls into the hands—and hearts—of two cowboys.

The Boot Knockers Ranch, Book 1

Sexual dysfunction. The words make Sybill cringe, but after one too many failed relationships, she has to face reality. Her O-button is broken, big time. Sick of sitting on the sexual sidelines, she books a week at Boot Knockers Ranch. If a passel of rugged cowboys vying to bring her bliss can’t get her off, nothing will.

Hugh had planned to sit out this week’s rotation of sexual therapy, but when he spots sultry Sybill, he pulls rank. His bone-deep urge to possess her isn’t enough to coax elusive orgasms out of her body, though. And his resolve to give the lady whatever she needs wavers when she shyly makes a mind-blowing request.

Riggs stepped aside when Hugh muscled in to claim Sybill, but he jumps at the chance to fulfill her ultimate fantasy—a threesome. But once they come together, all barriers are stripped away, exposing his love for the one man—and woman—he’d break every last rule to make his own.

Warning: This ain’t your daddy’s ranch. Contains cowboys administering sexual therapy to frustrated ladies—and each other. Fresh batteries recommended. You’re gonna need ’em!

5 stars = I freaking LOVED this book Niiiiiiiice! Talk about some hot cowboy lovin’, Ms. Petrova certainly knows her way around a ménage scene, or two, or three. Whew! Sybill may have gone to the Boot Knockers Ranch having never had an orgasm, but she didn’t leave that way … even if she left with her heart broken. What’s a girl to do when the man of her dreams turns out to be two men – one of whom can’t admit he’s in love with the other man? Oh yeah, you got it, we get bisexual cowboys, hot ménage sex, and romance … face it, you can’t get your heartbroken if there’s no romance involved. All of this adds up to a stellar read that I enjoyed from beginning to end (even if I didn’t want it to end). The Boot Knockers Ranch hosts 20 women each week as the cowboys use their talents and skills to help the women overcome whatever sexual dysfunction that plagues them – virginity, body image issues, fantasy-fulfillment, failure to orgasm, etc. But don’t mistake the Ranch for a bordello. The ladies are carefully screened and matched by a counselor who knows what each cowboy can do and what skills are needed to help the individual woman. While I find the idea fascinating, I thought the added twist that the cowboys are shareholders in the ranch gives them a vested interest in seeing it succeed and helps to keep it professional and above-board. Although Pushin’ Buttons features Hugh and Riggs, it is clear from scenes involving the other cowboys that the men take their job seriously and treat the women with respect. And, in Hugh and Riggs’ case, love.  Being a founding member of the Boot Knockers Ranch, Hugh is taken aback when he responds so strongly to Sybill. He’s not supposed to be taking part in this week’s treatments, but he cannot NOT throw his hat into the ring for her. So it’s no wonder he falls for her and he falls hard – so hard that he takes it personally when he can’t take over the edge. It’s quite endearing how Hugh beats himself up mentally when he finds his pleasure without giving Sybill hers. Though he doesn’t admit it to himself, his determination to please her is not about his ego, it’s about pleasing his woman. Needless to say, he’s not happy when he learns that Riggs has wormed his way into their bed … he doesn’t want to share Sybill, not even with his lover. When he learns that it is at Sybill’s request (and not Riggs’ machinations), he agrees and Sybill (and the reader) is treated to some lip biting, squirm inducing, panty-drenching sex scenes that show that Sybill isn’t the only one who can ride a cowboy. Yee Haw! What takes Pushin’ Buttons from a 4-star read to a 5-star read for me is the romance. The author doesn’t just give you some great sex scenes that’ll overheat your Kindle, she also writes one heartbreakingly sweet romance as these three characters come to terms with their love for one another in such a brief time. This is especially difficult for Hugh as he’s had his heartbroken by a man before, which is why he is so hesitant to open himself up to Riggs. Does this trio find happiness? Or do they go their separate ways – Sybill back to her life as a researcher in Atlanta and Hugh and Riggs resuming their therapeutic roles as cowboys on the ranch? You’ll have to read Pushin’ Buttons to find out and if you’re a fan of MFM ménages, you won’t be disappointed. This book has made it on my reread list and I’m looking forward to Ms. Petrova’s next book in the Boot Knockers series.       I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.  Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!

The concept of the ranch was unique, and I loved the premise. If I had a sexual dysfunction, I would want a cowboy to cure me. I really felt Sibyll's pain - both in the "condition" that brought her to the ranch as well as everything she went through while there. I enjoyed watching the love story unfold. Hugh and Riggs are the kind of cowboys very few would be able to resist. (They can't even really resist each other.) When Hugh is having trouble with Sibyll in the beginning, Em made him seem so genuine and real. His emotions and inner turmoil were evident and spot on. As time moves forward, the jealousy and self-deprecation from Hugh hurt my heart and made me love the flawed man even more. Once Sibyll finally climaxes, there is a lot of tension that melts from the characters. The end of the week at the ranch really surprised me as did the way the HEA happened. I can't really say more without spoiling the story. The emotional struggles of both Sibyll and Hugh were very lifelike and the story wouldn't have been half as good without them. Things I would have liked...1) To be transported into the story. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it - I just didn't feel like I was on the ranch with them. 2) Booker's reaction to the practical joke. I'm sure every cowboy on the ranch was laughing hysterically, and I would have loved to have been in on it. If you're on the fence with MM or menage and are loving cowboys, this is a fantastic read to break you in and I would recommend it.

Good hot and sexy read! I found this to be well written with concerns to the subject matter of two men and a woman. Society does not look well at people that find they need more than what is allowed, I would like to think it is possible to have this type relationship w/o cheating going on that a triad could love and respect each other. Anyway l enjoyed the story and the subject and look forward to more from this author

This is my first book by Ev Petrova and it will not be my last. "Pushing Buttons" is the first book in the (Boot Knockers) series. Boot Knockers is a ranch that caters to women looking to experience a sexual awakening or cure their sexual problems. As the pamphlet says "Let the Boot Knockers fulfill your wildest fantasies while showing you just how beautiful you really are."  Sybill Green has come to the ranch because of her failure to ever achieve an orgasum. Riggs Archer will be he cowboy for the week but Hugh Donavan out ranks him and takes over. Hugh can't get Sybill to loosen up enough to let go but when she asks for Riggs to join them...she sees stars. Can a week of sex lead to a HEA? If you like a good erotic ménage romance then this is the book for you. I can't wait for the next book.

I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here it is. Sibyll goes to the Boot Knockers Ranch in Texas to get some help. A week of trying to find the big O. She has never had an orgasm, she thinks it is broken. But when she gets there and sees the sexy, hunky cowboys, she thinks that the big O is right around the corner. When Hugh and Riggs fight for her, she is so excited. But after two nights with Hugh and still nothing. She gets to the edge but never flies. So what will Hugh do to help her? All the while feelings are beginning to surface. Turns out that her ultimate fantasy is a threesome. And Riggs is all too happy to join in but Hugh is not so much, he doesn't want to share Sibyll. Will Hugh or Riggs step aside and let the other spend the last two days with her? This is a very HOT, steamy, sexy story with stubborn cowboys and a heroine that will learn what she wants and needs is the same thing. This is a first for me by Em Petrova and I loved it and can't wait for more of this series.**Wicked Reads Review Team**
