Shane Remington has it all. He has a great family. He’s built his guest ranch into a great business. He’s a good-looking guy and he knows it. Everyone loves him. He may not have a woman, but that’s okay, he can have any woman he wants—and usually does. There is one woman who seems impervious to his charms though, and for some reason it bothers him.
Cassidy Lane has it all, too. She’s a talented artist, who has made it commercially. She’s successful in her work and in her life. Whatever she wants, she makes it happen. She came to Montana for a new adventure and it’s working out perfectly. The one thing she doesn’t want—or need—is a man.
Shane Remington may be annoyingly attractive, but Cassidy knows he can’t handle her. Guys like him want a small, sweet woman to feed their ego—not a strong smart woman like her to challenge it.
There’s no denying the attraction between them, but will it be enough to bring together a woman who doesn’t want anyone and a guy who wants everyone?

About the Author
Hi, I'm SJ, a coffee addict, lover of chocolate and drinker of good red wines. I'm a lost soul and a hopeless romantic. Reading and writing are necessary parts of who I am. Though perhaps not as necessary as coffee! I can drink coffee without writing, but I can't write without coffee.
I grew up loving romance novels, my first boyfriends were book boyfriends, but life intervened, as it tends to do, and I wandered down the paths of non fiction for many years. My life changed completely a couple of years ago and I returned to Romance to find my escape.
I write 'Sweet N Steamy' stories because to me there is enough angst and darkness in real life. My favorite romances are happy escapes with a focus on fun, friendships and happily-ever-afters, just like the ones I write.
These days I live in beautiful Montana, the last best place. If I'm not reading or writing you'll find me just down the road in the park - Yellowstone. I have deer, eagles and the occasional bear for company, and I like it that way :0)
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Although the ending was abrupt, this is not a cliffhanger. The romance started in an earlier book where Gina and Mason fell in love. This romance is the conclusion for Shane and Cassidy. She was a strong, independent woman who had talent. The men in her past were controling and their egos could not handle her success.
I love the confidence and communication the characters displayed.
I enjoyed reading about Shaun and Cassidy. Cassidy had been hurt before and she liked Shaun but ran every time she had seen him. Shaun flurted with Cassidy and liked her but he wasn't looking for anything lasting more than one night. They are both alike and fall in love but they learn to talk things out when a problem arises. It seemed a little rushed but I enjoyed the story.
I almost didn't read this because of May 4, 2017 review. Glad I ignored that mean review. I loved the story. Plan to read the whole series, starting another by SJ as soon as I finish review. About 180 pages. GJRA
Story needs to be longer but a good read
I enjoyed this book with it's complex characters. It leaves you ready to read about Carter in her next book. Great author, interesting story!
I couldn't get past the 3rd chapter. I thought the heroine was a total beech (a sign of a good author right, that I hate the character)? Good thing the book was free. I may try another of the author's books - but not for a while.
Loved it could not put it down.
I love this series! There was more to Shane than we expected. Looking forward to this series.
I'm a pretty big fan of SJ McCoy, and I liked Shane. I'm not a huge fan of angsty stories, so these sweet and steamy romances are appealing to me. It's refreshing to read a romance that isn't filled with characters flying off with worry and jealousy and fear over nothing but the fact they don't talk to each other. Shane and Cassidy's problems are mostly that they are both strong characters who don't trust themselves to be ready for the 'real thing' when it comes to a relationship. They have a few small bumps that don't materialize into anything worse because - novel idea - they step over their pride and talk things out. That being said, I almost felt like there wasn't enough conflict in this story. Much of the worry comes in the form of getting set up for Carter's book, and I don't know - is it contradictory to say I don't like angst, but then be disappointed when there isn't enough conflict? Shane's story is a good read, and worth the time, but I just came away feeling a little let down - not a lot let down, just a tiny bit. After all, conflict drives a story - and good sex scenes paired with a series of small hurdles doesn't quite do as much for me as battling one powerfully strong external conflict. ARC copy provided in exchange for honest review.
This book is like going to a restaurant and leaving hungry. I think the author thinks the hot & steamy means she doesn't need to write a better book.
