Resisting the Rancher by Kylie Scott is the second book in her series The Hills of Texas and I fell in love with this one from page one. Following the story of Rusty Walker and Williams Hill, you could tell from early on that they were perfect for each other. Williams is a man who works hard to provide stock animals for the rodeo, and he makes sure that business is good day in and day out. Williams has a natural connection to the business and is willing to work his fingers to the bone to get the results that he wants. Rusty has been bred to work the ranch, and just because she happened to be born a woman doesn’t mean that she can’t pull her own weight day in and day out. When she finds out from her father that she won’t inherit what is rightfully hers without a husband to help her run the business seeing red is an understatement. Williams is drawn to Rusty from the first night that they meet, and even though she isn’t interested in rodeo cowboys there is something about her that keeps Williams trying to turn her eye towards him. Kissing her was something that Williams did on a whim, but the spark that he felt when her lips keeps her on his mind every day and night. When circumstances lead their paths to cross again, Rusty takes a huge leap of faith with Williams and asks him to marry her and run the ranch with her. When he agrees there is something that just clicks between these two. Both of them have been hurt in the past, but if they can work together they will find that accidental love is one of the best things to happen to either of them. Scott is an old favorite of mine, having read several of her stories in the past. I can’t seem to get enough of her writing style and this series is no exception. If you are looking for a great series, or even just a great author that will pull you under with each book, than this is the author and series for you! Can’t wait to see what she brings to her readers next.

Resisting the Rancher- Kadie Scott 5-stars Resisting the Rancher by Kadie Scott is a light and easy romance read that I enjoyed from start to finish. It’s the second book in the Hills of Texas series, it’s also my first of the series so I can honestly say that it can be read as a standalone, although I look forward to reading the first book because I loved this one so much! Resisting the Rancher follows Williams and Rusty, two incredibly funny characters who met under crazy circumstances. Their story is unconventional, sweet, romantic and laugh out loud funny. I loved Kadie’s attention to detail and the perfect flow of the storyline. This is one of those books that I can see myself reading over and over again and it’s definitely a book I would recommend to anyone looking for their next romance read!

Resisting the Rancher (Hills of Texas #2) by Kadie Scott was a good feel, frustrating, outstanding read that had me hooked from start to finish. My first read by this author, I was pleasantly surprise with how much I loved this book. Told in dual POV I was capture from the first chapter, no from when Will saw Rusty dancing and singing in her truck. This is part of a series, but even though they take place within the same world and family, it reads as a stand-a-lone. So no worries if you haven't read the first book. I have always had a guilty pleasure with the whole business like deal weddings, one of my favourites is With This Ring I thee Dread. Rusty, I loved her, smart, independent, strong; but I did get a little annoyed with some for her standoffness and jumping to conclusions. But it was nice to see that she was the one that had to make things better instead of the man. Will was a dream guy, like wow, how and where can I get one? He's was a freaking saint for being so patient with the pig headed Rusty. But they fit, and even though they jumped into marriage, their relationship grew at a natural pace and felt real. Will, he for me, was the true star of this book. Sure Rusty is that strong female protagonist that I love, but Will, he stole the show with his unique personality and non-alpha approach to wooing the stubborn read head. Overall I loved every minute of this book, this is a super high recommendation from me. The writing is witty, entertaining and at no point in this wicket tale did I feel board or done with the story. I wanted it to go on. I will be going back and reading the first book, and every book that follows this one. There are still two more brother and a sister that needs a story told. I am looking forward to jumping beck into this sweet cowboy world. Happy Reading -E.A. Walsh

Resisting the Rancher was a fun 4 star read, this is book 2 in the Hills of Texas series. Rusty has been trying all her life to get her father’s praise. She has worked very hard on the family business and one day hopes to take over, however her father isn’t quite convinced. Her father is very old fashioned and isn’t confident a woman can take over. Rusty has to marry a man that her father approves of in order to inherit the ranch, will she be able to find one? Williams has his own business and he is very familiar with Rusty and how hard of a worker she is when she starts working for him he can’t help but be attracted to her. Williams eventually agrees to help Rusty by getting married, although he has an ulterior motive. Rusty has trust issues and is worried about getting too close to Williams. She’s not quite sure what his intentions are with her and the ranch. She also has some feelings that she is trying to hide as well. Will Rusty get her ranch? Will Williams get a HEA with Rusty? Rusty was a strong willed, hard working woman. Wiliams was a loving, hard working man. This was my first read from Kadie Scott and once I started I couldn’t put the book down. I really liked the storyline and the characters. I look forward to reading more from her.

Resisting the Rancher is book two in The Hills of Texas by Kadie Scott. This is Rusty Walker and Williams "Will" Hill's story. I loved this marriage of convenience story! Rusty and Will's characters were easy to connect to. I loved the banter and the interaction between them. Rusty's spunk was great and it's a good thing that Will doesn't give up easily. This was a fun and sweet story. FYI, contains mature content. I reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I really enjoyed this book. Rusty and Will are great characters and I loved how their relationship evolved from a marriage of convenience to something real. Rusty is a strong vibrant woman even though her father has controlled every aspect of her life...until now. I loved how Will just let her be herself and supporting her however he could. This is a well written book that will give you a wonderful relaxing afternoon of entertainment. I definitely recommend it.

Loved this book!! All Rusty has ever wanted was to run her father's ranch but she was never good enough her dad. Now her dad has told her, she needs to get married before he dies and then the ranch will be hers. She meets William is a bar, and he is smitten with her immediately. Rusty agrees to marry him in name only, but soon her dad puts other demands up on the inheritance. William is hoping to woo Rusty once they are married, little does he know Rusty deep down wants more from this relationship. Loved these characters, Rusty is so feisty but so cute that I just fell in love with her. William. oh my, he just won't give up on her. They are so perfect together. I can't wait to read more from the Hill family. This is the second book in the series but can be read as a stand alone.

I loved, loved, loved Resisting the Rancher by Kadie Scott, book two in The Hills of Texas series. This is an emotional roller coaster of a story, dealing with trust, strangers, and love. Rusty Walker has spent her entire life trying to earn respect and approval from her ranching father that she is capable of running his business, even earning a business degree. However, he does not believe that she, or any woman, is capable of running his business. If she wants to inherit she must marry a man of his approval who can help her run the business. In a fit of rebellion she agrees to work for Williams Hill training horses for barrel racing. Will kissed Rusty in an act of temporary insanity, and lost his heart to her right there, if not earlier. Despite the complications to his own rodeo stock business, he agrees to marry the feisty red-head, hoping to woo her once they're hitched. Because of her past history with men, she views him with suspicion and resentment, not sure that he wants her instead of her ranch. I felt for Rusty. She had never known unconditional love and distrusted Will motives. She enjoyed life living with his family and getting to know him better but had decided that this marriage would not last long. It was difficult for Will to convince her otherwise, knowing that he had strong feelings for her. Will was feeling that no matter what he did it was the wrong move and that he would never convince Rusty that she should choose to stay with him, love him, and let him love her. I totally loved reading this book and didn’t want to put this book down. Ms. Scott wrote a wonderful and emotional story which drew me in, making me forget the world around me and did not let me go until I turned the last page, loving the characters she created. I highly recommend this book to other reader. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

I enjoyed this book as much as I did book one in the series. This one centers around Rusty Walker and Williams/Will Hills. She is an accomplish barrel racer, horse trainer, and daughter of a wealthy rancher. A man that thinks she isn’t capable of running his ranch, while in fact she is very capable . Will handles rodeo stock and is creating a name for himself and his family’s ranch . They meet at a rodeo and the chemistry is obvious, though she believes he is attracted to her only because of whom her father is. They make a deal that will benefit both of them. Though Rusty is sure it will be only a marriage of convenience that has an expiration date, Will has other plans. The plot was engaging and the characters complex. It’s a story about a family’s support or lack thereof. As well as a story about trust, goals, forgiveness and of course love. The storyline ran smoothly and if you read book 1, you will be happy to know that the characters make an appearance. Looking forward to what the author has in store for us in future books. I was entrusted this copy by Netgalley and Tule Publishing. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
