“These two had chemistry in spades!” ~ Under the Covers
Talk about unconventional couples but also one my favorite tropes. Mac Byrd is the foreman(woman) of the Triple C ranch, and she can be one tough chick. Even though she is very much a woman, she also has the tough attitude a man would need to run the ranch, and he enjoys her job. She’s also been a family friend since she was a little girl and was best friends with the Cavanaugh sister, and has had a crush on the older brother Deacon ever since.
Many things have changed since then. Her best friend died, Deacon moved away and became very successful, and she took over running the ranch. Now that Everett Cavanaugh died and Deacon comes back things are about to change yet again when Deacon makes his plans clears that he wants the Triple C ranch and wants to level the place down.
There is just a bit of angst with the backstory and I was glad to see it didn’t overpower the current plot. Deacon has his demons he has to deal with and Mac slowly uncovers them. She might be just the perfect heroine to bring him his HEA. I loved them together. The slow build up, their connection, their chemistry! These two had chemistry in spades! And of course, my favorite trope of best friend’s older brother. Can’t resist!
The mystery I find surrounding Cassie’s death will play throughout the series and made for interesting tidbits as we read through her diary. I can’t wait to see that unfold.
I would’ve liked to see more life in the ranch, but since we are combining this story with Deacon’s city living I lost some of that. I am however very excited about the next book and looking forward for more of a cowboy feel.

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.
