Overview


Billionaire Ryder Blackwell has got it all under control. The wealthiest cattle baron this side of the Mississippi, he’s built an empire for himself in hopes of getting distance from a tortured past. But when a stunningly sexy—and strong-willed—new vet comes to town just in time for Christmas, Ryder knows he’s met the one spirit he just can’t tame…

Lara Montgomery doesn’t want to be involved with any man, least of all the rich, infuriating, and unbearably sexy Ryder Blackwell. She vows never to tangle with the charming rancher, but when he offers her the ultimate deal—one weekend at his ranch in exchange for a near-priceless horse—Lara cannot refuse. And as the nights get colder and their attraction gets hotter, Lara’s about to get all she’s ever wanted for Christmas…

    This was the book I have been looking for. I like cowboy stories

    This was the book I have been looking for. I like cowboy stories. I like stories where someone gets their comeuppance. This had all that and was a short story to break the long books I usually read. Dr Laura, the local vet, is ticked off. The hotshot rich guy of the area bought a horse she wanted. He blackmails her to visit his ranch to work for the weekend. There are spoilers over their lives and their pasts. I liked this story. Most billionaire stories seem false to me. I liked how this plot was really workable. If you like ranching and vet work then you should try this read. It is an adult story so plan accordingly. I hope you enjoy it! I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.

    The Billionaire Cowboy is a quick read the combines the right am

    The Billionaire Cowboy is a quick read the combines the right amount of conflict, humor, and sexy fun times, along with just a dash of action. You know a book is going to be good when it starts with one brother (Jason) warning his other brother (Ryder) that he may have a bit more of a “pissed-off female” headed his way than he can handle. And Lara arrives on the scene spitting mad, full of fire and enough gumption to tell Ryder off when no one else in their town would dare talk to him like that if they weren’t a blood relative. It was a great opening scene that left me chuckling and ready to dive in for more. 

    Ryder and Lara are both determined and passionate people who have far more in common than either know. The chemistry between the two is burn-the-house-down hot and makes for some steamy encounters. Over the course of the weekend they find their common ground and realize that a weekend may not be enough for them. It looks like this cowboy may have finally met his match. All in all, The Billionaire Cowboy was an entertaining way to spend a couple of hours and I’m looking forward to reading more of Ms. Baxter’s work. I cannot wait for the next book in the series and learning more about Jason’s story – and maybe meet the third brother. 

    I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    ~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    Mandy Baxter is writing about hot rich men! Honestly what more could you want? Oh a cowboy, you say. Well, she has that covered as well.

    THE BILLIONAIRE COWBOY kicks off the Billionaire’s Club series with an alpha hero and some serious sexual tension! Ryder Blackwell has stolen something from Lara Montgomery that she wants badly. Bad enough that she is willing to spend a weekend with him to get it. It doesn’t sound as bad as that though because while you’re mind probably went straight to sex, Ryder actually just wants her to hang around his ranch for awhile.

    As this is a novella and not a full length story, their romance heats up fast. Ryder isn’t the type of guy to dally for long. However, when someone from Lara’s past comes back into the picture, I felt that the climax and the resolution of that happened too fast. However, all in all, I found this to be an enjoying first romp into a brand new series. I cannot wait to see what Baxter has planned next!

    Great romance between two characters that don't want to fall in

    Great romance between two characters that don't want to fall in love. Ryder is a ranch owner and he wants Lara. Lara is a vet who wants the horse "October". Lara isn't interested in becoming another notch in Ryders bed post but she wants October and Ryder just bought her right out from under Lara at auction. Ryder thinks that by owning October he can get Lara to come to him. Lara will do just about anything to get her. Ryder challenges her to work the ranch with him and if she can last the weekend she can have October. The romance and fun that ensue are a romance you won't want to miss. It is fun, and filled with hysterical banter. I loved it.!!!!!

    this is a fun and sexy read! Ryder is a self-made cattle baron and Lara is the local vet who wants to build her practice not get involved with someone who has a reputation. When he buys a horse at an auction that she wanted to buy, it starts a fun, sexy, and wild romp in a great start to a new series. Can't wait to read the next book and have had added Mandy Baxter to my "author" list.

    This was a fun read that keeps your smiling, it is a short story

    This was a fun read that keeps your smiling, it is a short story that you will want to read in one setting. You don’t have to give it a lot of focus which makes it a lovely fun romance that will keep your motor running and your smiles coming. What a way to start a series, I cannot wait to read the rest of them.

    Ryder is a headstrong alpha male who has everything going for him. He is a very handsome, tough cowboy who can have any women he pretty well wants. There is one women he wants more than anything in the world but she isn’t saying yes. He more into a few one nightstands not a meaningful relationship. The new vet in town will not give him the time of day, his plans is to take the one thing she wants most in this world away from her. Then give it back to her if she agrees to come work on his ranch for the weekend. He knows the little spit fire will come running and when she does he has his plans for getting her into his bed. Oh yes he has got this or does he?

    Lara well she has plans of her own and they do not include the rich, infuriating, and unbearably sexy Ryder. She has a business to start, a family to overcome and a name to make. She doesn’t have time for men and doesn’t want anything to do with Ryder or does she. She is madder than a wet hen, how dare he do this, but she has plans of her own to win back the one thing she wants most in this world. If she teaches him a lesson along the way so be it. He will find she isn’t some easy lay oh he has a lot to learn and she just might be the women to teach him. If she can just get her emotion, thoughts and feelings under control she might come out of this the winner.

    This was a fun loving romance where each have lessons to learn. Things do not always come easy sometimes attraction is just too strong to walk away from. Plans do not always work as we plan them but in the long run they usually turn out for the best.

    This story has a nice ending, I wouldn’t say it has closure. I like closure and from what I can see these characters will not be showing up in the other series planned but I could be wrong. I found all the characters to be wonderful, his brother was a trip and lord his mother is something else. The book doesn’t have a lot of meaningless chatter which was nice, it was straight to the point. It does not give you a lot of useless information. However I do feel it was a little to short, I would have liked to seen closure. This is a story that could easily be built on and taken so much farther. For a short read I felt it was an outstanding read with lots of passion without filling the book up with pages and pages of sex. It is a get to the point book and move on, I found that to be very likeable. It does state that it is a Christmas read, I did not find anything about Christmas in this book. For me that didn’t matter just thought I would point it out.

    This is the first book of this authors I have read, I do look forward to reading more from this author. I found this to be a total enjoyable read. If you are looking for a fun loving, easy read than I recommend this book.

    A romance that say HELLO to a puddle of combustibles with a blow

    A romance that say HELLO to a puddle of combustibles with a blowtorch, so wear FLAME RESISTANT UNDIES!

    Ryder Blackwell is a mega bucks cattle rancher, but he did it the hard way, with his blood, sweat & tears. He has been able to get any woman he wants, but the local vet, Lara, while not give him the time of day! So he pulls his last card from his deck & she will not be able to walk away!

    Lara Montgomery is the new veterinary in town, has also pull herself up by her boot straps & now she must keep her sparkly reputation in town. If only she did not CRAVE Hottie Ryder, but she will not be another member of his Wham, Bam, Thank you Ma'am Club. So why or why is she driving to his ranch in a FEMALE RAGE? Because that snake bought HER horse that was the beginning of her breed ranch!

    To get her horse back, he wants her to spend the weekend at his ranch, but Lara won't sleep with him for a horse. Ryder just wants her to prove that she can WORK a working ranch & if she does, the horse is hers. So we have the oldest war of male verses female! Ryder is planning to kill her with pure sinful decadent indulgences, but Lara is planning to show him that what she lacks in muscle, she will make up with her pure will! With a stubborn fence, a feisty, smart & trust worthy horse, smiles that could melt any granny's undies, a cattle dog that's works for his chow, male lips that were made to please a female, an alfalfa delivery service, female moans that can make a male spontaneous cum, meddling family members, new & creative kitchen moves, old scars revealed, too many orgasms to count (which is such amazingly good thing), a female's mouth that make her man so very happy & a show of male chivalry to rock & roll Lara & Ryder's world to completion! Can Lara walk away & not be bow legged? Does Ryder want her to go? Will they have the ultimate happy endings again & again? Who got the horse?

    This is my 1st romance by Ms. Baxter & she totally woke up my pleasure center with this cowboy style quickie! Lara was a strong willed sassy southern heroine that learned the hard way to only count on herself. Ryder was BAD BOY at heart, but CRAVED (even if he hid it) that soul mate that would always just want HIM! This was a PULL THE FIRE ALARM quickie, but it did have an amazing love story of lonely hearts, inner dreams & a deep meeting of souls! Now all romances reads need sparks, steam & sizzle & Ms. Baxter brought an open flame to her gasoline party & then BOOM, yes thank you ma'am! Now I absolutely love to discover new-to-me authors & Ms. Baxter is now on my radar & I can't wait to read more of her WARNING: FIRE EXTINGUISHER REQUIRED reads & so she earns my top score of 5 fingers up & 10 toes for this 1st book of the Billionaire's Club series!

    NetGalley ARC given for my honest review.

    This novella will definitely get your adrenaline pumping.  Baxte

    This novella will definitely get your adrenaline pumping.  Baxter tells an inviting and exciting tale that I easily read in a single sitting.  Baxter’s writing is very smooth and her descriptions paint a brilliant picture of the ranch.  I was amazed at how in-depth the story was considering the short page length.   I also appreciated the accuracy in the equine and cattle details in the novel.  The author really knew what she was talking about, which was refreshing.  

    I thoroughly enjoyed the characters that we came to know throughout this novella.  Baxter doesn’t simply develop them in the present, but lets us in on their personal and family histories as well.  I really felt like I had met these two.  I loved that the characters knew each other before the story began, and that they had a connection that came with them into the tale.  It made the entire story so much more believable.  

    As a whole, this was a quick, racy, exciting story that draws at both your emotions and your wildest imagination.  It was a great read.  

    Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
