Genre: hot contemporary romance
He's the one who taught her to ride. Now all he wants is to ride her.
Blake Coleman is old enough to know that acting on impulse causes nothing but a heap of trouble. But when trouble's a western-hat-wearing blonde with slim legs that go on forever, what's a man to do? Wanting the sweet girl next door is just wrong. The responsible thing to do is keep his hands off.
Jaxi has other plans for Blake's hands, and his heart. She may have once considered him a big brother, but that was a long time ago. She's all grown up now and ready to convince him that she's perfect for him. Except he can't seem to see past the big "don't touch" sign that's apparently still hanging around her neck.
When Jaxi ends up living right under Blake's nose, the heat between them slides off simmer and leaps up to barn-burning levels. However, a few of the younger six-pack Colemans have decided Jaxi's brand of trouble is worth risking a few busted bones.
That is, if Blake's finally ready to let go the reins and fight for what he wants...
Warning: Sexy cowboys seducing and being seduced in trucks, pool halls and barns. Droolworthy country charm, a little double-teaming, a few secrets and a whole lot of brothers to look forward to. Anyone wanna go for a ride?
I have been warned that this book was too hot for my taste, but I finally read it anyway. And I loved it. Sure, the love scenes are scorching hot, especially that first one in the pool hall, but the romance itself was sweet and good and I loved the story.
Blake’s mother has fallen from a ladder while picking apples, and now she needs help around the house. Cooking and cleaning for 7 healthy big men is not an easy job. But Jaxi is up for it. She has been working towards becoming a family member ever since she was a little girl and found a second home at the Coleman’s ranch. And she has her sights set firmly on Blake, even though some of his brothers sure want to change her mind about that. She has gone to college with one idea in her mind: to become the perfect wife for a modern day hard working rancher. She has done some eclectic schooling, and of course some classes just for fun. She has lots of friends, but her heart is set on Blake.
And now that she is living under the same roof, she is going after him with everything she gets. And that sure was fun to witness. His parents know of course, and approve of it, and most of his brothers are rooting for her as well. They are a naughty bunch, at least the twins are, and the one who pretended to be her boyfriend a few years ago, just to make Blake jealous (which did not seem to work).
It takes a while, but when Blake’s eyes finally open, and he can see past their age difference, he lets loose completely. Until he decides he needs to romance and woo Jaxi first, and puts an end to their sexual encounters…
Yes, I enjoyed this book very much, even the sex scenes, and I do look forward to reading more books by Vivian Arend. I loved the characters, and I am quite intrigued by some of the other brothers.
