Welcome to California’s ranch country, where the cowboys of New York Times bestselling author Kate Pearce’s sexy and heartwarming series live, learn, and find love…
Ranching will always run in Evan Miller’s blood, but as the fifth son, he also wants to prove to his skeptical family that he can forge his own path. Drawn to the world of rodeo, Evan encounters Josie Martinez, half-sister of world champion bull rider Rio Martinez. He hopes Josie might show him the ropes–among other things–but Josie has priorities of her own…
Josie’s not sure what she’s doing at her brother’s ranch when she should be at her office in San Francisco, fulfilling her dream of becoming young entrepreneur of the year. Ever since violence unexpectedly entered her life and her home, she’s struggled to get her life back on track. The ranch offers a sanctuary–with one gorgeous exception: Evan. But is he just a distraction, or can their growing bond–and undeniable attraction–persuade Josie that her heart is big enough for work and love
I normally love Kate Pearce books but I had a hard time with this one. I think the fact that I hadn’t read any of the others in the series impacted my enjoyment of it.
I couldn’t connect to the characters and found it hard to stay interested. I didn’t feel the chemistry I would expect to find in one of Ms Pearce’s books.
This book wasn’t for me but for readers who have read the series I’m sure it is a better fit.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
