I had a soft spot for Jack since the first book when we saw him getting his heart broken by his long time crush. Then his brother was in a pretty life and death situation and Jack’s team finally rescued him. So after all that Jack goes back home. Other than being a military men, he’s also a cowboy. Ohhhh the perfection!
Nicki is actually the daughter of a mobster and she’s been on the run and hiding for a while. What better place to hide than as a farm hand for Gordon Equine. But then she starts falling for Jack.
I have to say this book was a bit light on everything. The connection between Jack and Nicki was there and sweet, however the suspense element was almost non-existent really in this story. And then there’s the sexual frustration you will probably get reading this. Jack, my poor sexy cowboy, got nothing but blue balls. But that’s ok, it did work out with the story that they took their time. I just wish maybe the story would’ve been a little longer and we would’ve seen them getting together at least once.
I guess I’m a bit disappointed because I expected an over the top wonderful HEA for Jack and it was a very low key romance. I’m not sure I think Jimmy is ready to get his book next, but lets bring it! I can’t wait to read about this tortured hero.
I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
