In Her Rogue To Tame, we find Amanda Heller and Tucker Montgomery. Tucker plans to open a Zip Line Business in Montana. Before the first pole's set, Tucker’s laid up with an injury. But has friends ready to step in and help meet his dead line. Tucker's an amazing character, he’s good hearted, hard-working, and ambitious. However, the reader will find behind his boyish charm and style, he is hiding childhood trauma, fears, and scars which have deep roots. When Amanda Heller shows up they reach an agreement, he will supervisor the renovations on her grandmother's house and she will create an ad promo for the Zip Line. Amanda, raised in a dysfunctional family of wealth and privilege, by parents who make the devil look like a good guy. You will love to hate Amanda’s parents. Amanda’s the only good apple in the basket. Brow beaten, ignored, and used her whole life, Salonen skillfully developed her character. I loved seeing her reach the point she could stand up for herself and others. The secondary characters add depth and intrigue to the story. In concluding my review, I found a solid romance with well-developed characters and an intriguing story-line. The attraction between Tucker and Amanda’s hot, and deep with love scenes which are intense and steamy. Due to love scenes, I recommend this book for mature young adults and adults. I received an ARC from Netgalley and chose to voluntary review this book.

Amanda Jeannine Heller is the daughter of manipulative parents.you don't cross them and if you do, don't let them know about it or beware the consequences! Unfortunately Amanda has let them down by breaking her engagement to the son of her father's best friend who is also her boss - or ex boss now she's been fired. On top of that, her mother had been looking forward to a show wedding and had been planning just such an event. Now, having annoyed both her parents she's been ordered to travel to Marietta to 'sort out' her maternal grandmother who is in hospital following an accident. By sorting out, her mother means update her home ready to be sold and get her grandmother taken into a care home whilst making her Mum legally in charge of all her financial decisions. Amanda hadn't met her grandmother, Molly, before - she's a resilient feisty old lady who really just wants to get back to her own home again. As Amanda gets to know Molly she starts to find out more about her family and herself. One of the reasons she has her eyes opened is Trucker Montgomery, who is recovering from an ankle injury sustained in a pothole but is the ideal person for her to oversee the renovation of her Grandmother's home. They make a deal to help each other - her using her promotional skills to develop his still being constructed zip line adventure experience and him helping sort out her grandmother's home renovations. Neither planned on the attraction between them or on her parents' reactions it is going to take some dramatic revelations and good old fashioned scheming before they'll stand a chance of achieving their HEA together in this well written, engaging read. A lovely romance to get lost in, recommended to anyone who enjoys these Marietta tales which just keep on transporting the reader into this becoming familiar community. Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.

Tucker is changing careers with his new zipline line adventure and leaving his male dancing career behind--with a farewell performance right after his leg heals. The last thing he needs is a complication like Amanda. A little fling maybe, but nothing more. Amanda is on a mission to make up for disappointing her family--fix up her grandmother's house, put her grandmother in a home, and maybe she'll get her NY career back. Funny thing, emotions are never in play in her family. She can no longer be heartless while getting to know her grandmother, and Tucker is more than a fling. Family secrets revealed, ties untangled, and love prevails!

Salonen creates a unique backdrop for her latest Big Sky Mavericks novel. She sets the scene well, allowing me to picture all of the elements. Each aspect is laid out in a manner that I felt as if I were there. The story that Salonen creates is both emotional and entertaining. I appreciated seeing the different lives intertwine and the various different familial units. I loved the way that the different parts of Tucker’s life came together. It made for a very intriguing hero to this story. It took me quite a while to connect with Amanda. She was just so uppity. That said, the peek into her past, family situation, and how she got where she is now was an eye opener for me. I found that Amanda’s parents were key players in the novel, yet from a distance. Her father’s wished ruled the day all too often as Amanda tried to make amends for something that should never have been an issue. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Salonen’s writing and this novel was enjoyable, but it just didn’t quite do it for me. Although I had fun reading the novel I couldn’t fully get into it. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

I loved this story so much! Amanda's parents made me very VERY angry multiple times in the story. However, Amanda's caring nature was such a sharp contrast to her parents' selfish ways that it made me love Amanda even more. Tucker was great as well. The relationship between Amanda and him (and Molly, Amanda's grandmother) was fun to be a part of. Then to add in Tucker's mom, who he thought abandoned him when he was a child, added a whole new layer to the story. Sometimes things aren't as they seem, and it's never too late to find out the truth and get a second chance at a relationship - whether it's a romantic relationship, or family.

A summer fling, or should I say roommates with benefits. Two opposites are in Marietta Montana. Tucker, an injured fireman/male dancer is now building his zip line and Amanda has come to oversee the restoration of her grandma's house, whom she never knew. Amanda is a rich girl, that just ended her engagement. They both share the guest house on her grandma's property. As the summer progresses so does their love for each other. Loved the grandmas, Ona and Molly, both with such words of wisdom. Kind hearts and giving. Ms. Salonen did a wonderful job of writing on the alzheimers of Molly. I felt so bad for her and the separation from her family. This is well written book of finding love when least expected and opposites do attract. This book will have you laughing and smiling through out the story. It was great to see the wedding and catch up with the other characters from previous Big Sky Mavericks. This book is part of a series can be read as a stand alone.

Though it wasn't my favorite, this was an enjoyable addition to the author's 'Big Sky Mavericks' series. I really liked Tucker and Amanda, but there was so much happening in the story that I didn't feel the focus was on their relationship. I'm now looking forward to the next book in this series.

What can I say about this story? I finished it with tears and sniffles...it was such a sweet and special story, and Debra Salonen seems to excel at them, especially in he Montana Mavericks series. I love Tucker. He is who he is, and is grateful for every thing he has. He is the complete opposite of society-girl Amanda Heller, who works hard to be perfect. She is like a fish out of water when her family banishes her to Marietta with the job of "redeeming" herself by renovating her grandmother's house...a grandmother she really doesn't know. When dancer and adventurer Tucker injures himself, he can't oversee construction of his Zip line, so Amanda offers him a place to stay in exchange for overseeing the renovations. These two very different people find that they aren't so different. The characters are so wonderful, from the main characters to the secondary, all are written so well they evoke the emotion they were intended to. It was wonderful to see Amanda find herself and Tucker realize he may have been raised in the Bayou, but his life was richer than Amanda's. From Amanda and Tucker, to Molly, to Tucker's Ona and Mother, this was such a heart-warming story. *I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

It was the fling that shouldn't have happened. Tucker Montgomery and Amanda Heller were total opposites. He is a semi-retired male stripper and she is a socialite who works in advertising. Amanda's parents sent her to Montana to oversee the repairs and remodeling her grandmother's house. Little did Amanda know, the real plan was to fix up the house to sell and send her grandmother into a nursing home. While Tucker is recovering from an injury, he is working on his dream of opening a zip line when Amanda offers him the use of the cottage at her grandmother’s house. All he has to do is be available to take care of anything that comes up during the renovation. Tucker had no idea he would fall for a city girl who reminded him so much of his mother who abandoned him when he was a baby. Tucker gets to see the real Amanda while they are staying together in the guest house. That’s when he fell in love with her. But in the end, Amanda has reasons why she has to go back to New York City. Will Tucker ever see Amanda again? This is a really good story with a great plot and characters. I think I fell a little bit in love with Tucker as I read the story. The descriptions of the town of Marietta felt so real. Ona was a fun addition to the story. I would love to see her in more books. I am also curious about Tucker's mom Caro and Philip’s new relationship too.
