“Ms. Cutler delivers, not only a sexy cowboy hero, she also delivered an enthralling story line” ~Under The Covers

This is my first read from Melissa Cutler and it will not be the last.  I have to admit that I picked this book up on a basis of just looking at the cover. I’m lucky I landed with a good book because I just
should not decide on that reason alone. But hey, true to the cover, Ms. Cutler delivers not only a sexy cowboy hero she also delivered an enthralling story line.

Amy Sorentino of the Ultimate Chef Showdown has returned to her small town home of Catcher Creek. After losing the contest to her Ex-jerk-boyfriend, she decided to go back home to help her sisters save their family land. With the plans to turn their property into a Bed and Breakfast type of business, meeting with the owner of the best cattle ranch is inevitable…for the best piece of meat, of course.

I love Amy. With her, there are no pretenses. What you see is what you get including her emotions and decisions that go with it. She totally made me laugh with her rule of NO COWBOYS. Due to her past heartaches, she has become cynical and avoids cowboys like the plague.  However, her attraction for them, especially Keelan was unavoidable. Her inner dialogue trying to avoid him was hilarious. On the other hand, Keelan was just straight up with how he felt. His sexual innuendos made it even harder for Amy to resist. Their sexual tension was so obvious and totally off the charts. But it wasn’t just that, they complimented each other and they seem to solve each others problems.

The subplots were a great addition to the story and the rest of the characters were intriguing. With financial hardships, the Sorentino sisters’ argued and irritated each other.  However, with each
confrontation they seem to find the “sisterhood” and in the end, working things out. A few more stories brewing in the background with Vaugn (Keelan’s BFF) and Rachel (Amy’s sister). Jenna (the other sister) and her son’s story was vague but I’m totally curious to see what’s up her…I mean, what her story is all about.  Sloan, Mr. Dixon and Lisa looks like will be a permanent part of the sisters’ lives.  I hope to read more of everyone in the next installment scheduled to release
October 2013.  Rachel’s story!!!

About Melissa Cutler

Melissa Cutler knows she has the best job in the world, dividing her time between her dual passions for writing sexy contemporary romances and edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense for Harlequin, Penguin, and Kensington Books.

She was struck at an early age by an unrelenting travel bug and is probably planning her next vacation as you read this. When she's not globetrotting, she's enjoying Southern California's flip-flop wearing weather and wrangling two rambunctious kids.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
