“Ms. Dahl is definitely the go-to-author if you’re in the mood for a hot contemporary read.” ~ Under the Covers
I love it when an author writes of sexy hero but not perfect by the least, it just makes him so believable. Ms. Dahl made Walker Pearce just to be that!
Walker is one of the sexy cowboys living in an apartment complex in Jackson Town aka the “stud farm”. As sexy as he is, he is nothing close to being perfect. Living as a true Cowboy, he works the ranch and occasionally using his “charm” as a part of his job. And as far as he knows, that’s as far as his ability can go. But Charlie, who Walker went to high school with, knows he can be so much more. For reasons she can’t figure out, he is purposely holding himself back from any opportunities. Charlie is determined to push him and show him that he is so much more…and that’s while trying to get her own problems solved.
I love Walker and Charlie’s love story. I can never tire of reading about two adults trying to find their place in life. After meeting Walker in Too Hot to Handle, I was definitely intrigued. Descriptions like “Seriously. He looks…Big”, “..damn good cowboy”, and the fact that he is a big flirt and damn good dancer just made my knees weak. But all in all, I’m actually glad this “manwhore” is more than meets the eye. Meeting Charlie again was definitely a blessing. Walker needs a woman of substance and ambitious but yet grounded as he is. It’s not funny but, Charlie seemed to get herself in sticky situations. Finding Walker again actually gives her a bit of clarity of making the right decisions for herself. Charlie and Walker were a good fit indeed, and their story was certainly sweet.
Ms. Dahl gave Walker and Charlie a story one of hope, love and second chances. She also never fails to deliver steamy scenes that will leave you panting for the next page. Ms. Dahl is definitely the go-to-author if you’re in the mood for a hot contemporary read.

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.
