Overview

Patterson Campbell has a "love 'em and leave 'em" philosophy when it comes to women. He's never given anyone a reason to believe he's after more than a good time. That is, until he sees Alayna Brand across the room.

A bold, outgoing cowboy is exactly what shy, introverted Alayna needs to bring her out of her shell. But after an unforgettable night ends up being memorable for all the wrong reasons, Patterson has to prove that he's much more than just a good time if he wants to capture her heart.

When Alayna and Patterson find themselves working together, Alayna realizes that moving on from that night might not be as easy as she thought. And Patterson? He discovers reputations are sometimes hard to live down.

It's fine, just nothing that set it apart from other run of the mill romance novels.

Branded With A Kiss is my first book by Paula Altenburg, but hopefully not my last. Ms. Altenburg has delivered a well-written book. The characters are fantastic. Patterson works the family ranch, knowing it would be his someday, but not in any hurry to take over from his father. Alayna has one year left of college when her brother insists that she try to work the summer on the Bar-No Sweetheart Ranch. Patterson and Alayna's story is part drama, part sizzle, part humor and oh my, there may be whips involved. I enjoyed reading Branded With A Kiss and look forward to reading more from Paula Altenburg in the future. Branded With A Kiss is book 2 of The Sweetheart Brand Series but can easily be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Alayna is Patterson's friend's little sister, and she used to be off-limits, but she's a grown woman now, and that changes everything. But one night of disaster because of some serious communication problems may doom them forever. Neither can deny the attraction, and both need to talk, forgive, and actually date a little. Patterson is no longer the man of his reputation and Alayna is more mature. Working together forces them to be together on a daily basis. Do they have enough love in their hearts to get beyond the past and find a future together? Great read!

A Sweet, Quick Read! A sweet romance and quick read. Patterson Campbell has always been a Ladies' Man, but lately the fun has gone out of it. When he spots Alayna Brand at a bar one night and he has to approach her, despite being a good friend's baby sister. Alayna has had a crush on Patterson all her life, and now that she is all grown up she still has a hard time seeing herself as more than the tall, gawky girl she was. After a disastrous encounter, Alayna heads back to school, determined to put it behind her. Now, back for the summer before her final year in college, she ends up with a summer job at the Campbell family dude ranch. Patterson figures this is his chance to fix what went wrong and see if Alayna is "the" one. All he has to do is convince her. Alayna and Patterson are two people that really need to figure out who they are and what they want. Alayna has always been the one to do as she's told, while Patterson has always been the one pople never took seriously. It was fun to watch these two come together and figure things out with an entertaining cast of secondary characters. This is part of a series, but can easily be read as a stand alone. **I received an advanced copy from the Publisher via NetGalley. My opinions are my own and freely given.

This is a quick read, that i enjoyed, but the end felt slightly rushed. Patterson has gained a reputations for not being the relationship type. But when he meets Alayna he wants to see if he can be more. I loved the easy to read and get into story. Branded with a Kiss is the second book in the The Sweetheart Brand series.

Branded With a Kiss, book two in the Between the Sheets series, by Paula Altenburg is a falling for a friend’s little sister after she grows up. Patterson Campbell has had no problems when it comes to women. He has tried to be up front about not getting serious with them. That is until one night when he sees Alayna Brand at a bar. Alayna is shy and introverted, maybe an outgoing, sexy cowboy is what she needs to get out of her shell. An unforgettable night becomes memorable for all the wrong reasons, Patterson finds he needs to prove he is more than just a good time if he wants Alayna to believe she is “the one” for him. When these two spend a summer working together on the Campbell’s ranch, Alayna struggles with moving on from that night and Patterson learns that reputations can be difficult to live down. I enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. Ms. Altenburg is a great story teller able to draw her readers into her stories. I definitely recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Patterson has never been interested in forever but when Alayna bounces into and out of his life that changes. Alayna wants to experience a first with Patterson knowing he has a reputation she just didn’t expect to be disappointed in it. Patterson becomes determined to make up for there night together and show Alayna he is more than his old reputation. Branded with a Kiss was a good quick read for me that i enjoyed. My only issue with the book was the rushed ending.

I really enjoyed this one! Both the main characters are interesting and unforgettable. Alayna is a shy, introverted 20 something that desperately wants to break out of her shell. More specifically she wants to know what it's like to be with a man and lose her virginity. Patterson is actually a bit of a jerk at the beginning and ready for whatever Alayna has to offer. Too bad the night is memorable for all the wrong reason. After that night Patterson realizes what a jerk he was and wants to make it up to Alayna but she isn't going to make it easy for him!! A fun quick read I think you will enjoy. I recommend it.

I loved this book!!! A childhood crush leads shy Alayna to take a bold move with cowboy-player Patterson, a move that backfires spectacularly for both of them. They've got a lot of ground to make up with each other after that and what a journey it is! Paula Altenburg gives readers a funny, sexy, highly emotional and deeply satisfying read in the second of this entertaining series. I hope there will be more Sweetheart Brand books, and soon. "She'd come here to be wicked. To be daring. To be bad. In short, everything the world thought she wasn't. The way his eyes wandered over her said he didn't find her dull in at least one regard, so what was she waiting for?"

Branded with a Kiss by Paula Attenburg Sweetheart Brand #2 Simple virgin takes on lothario and the experience is not what she had hoped for…you know…great pleasure, fireworks, etc… but then a year later they have a second chance and manage to do a better job as she works on the ranch he and his father own. Somewhat predictable with both H/h people I had trouble relating to. If I had realized that it was a New Adult genre romance I probably would have given it a miss. That said, if you enjoy this genre and cowboys and virgins as the main character and like old fashioned Harlequin/Mills & Boon romances this book might be a perfect fit for you. Thank you to NetGalley and Tule Publishing for the ARC – this is my honest review. 2-3 Stars
