“…steamy insta love with some cowboys…”
~ Under the Covers
This book contains 2 stories that I did some research and were previously published by Ellora’s Cave back in 2004 and 2009. I hadn’t read these books prior to this and they are their own little series about two cowboys who co-own a company together and also own ranches. I guess that about summarizes the connection.
In the first story COWBOY AND THE CAPTIVE, both friends are flying their private plane and are seduced into taking on a cargo for a beautiful woman who spells trouble. Once they land they are ambushed and almost killed because their shipment contained drugs. Luc has wanted vengeance on this woman for a while and he seems to finally get his chance when her brother sets him up to kidnap her. I’m going to be honest here… This story had my eyes rolling back in my head a bit from the start. It certainly feels like the erotic romances of the time this book was published and there is a time and place in my reading for that. So as long as you go into this story expecting that and not an elaborate romance story with a deep connection, then you’ll find it enjoyable.
The second story COWBOY AND THE THIEF is about Luc’s friend and business partner, Jack. This was like a completely different series in the fact that it took me a while to make sense of what was going on. We are thrust into a different setting, Jack Riley is going to stay with his older friend Joe Manning in Ireland. Joe actually has an agenda and that is he feels Jack is the man who will be his daughter’s true love. There’s a bit of fate and supernatural beliefs to the whole thing and this story takes place half in Ireland and half back in Texas. I cared a lot less for this story. A lot of it didn’t make any sense and I ultimately didn’t connect with these characters.
Overall, if you are looking for some steamy insta love with some cowboys then you’ll want to pick this up. It wasn’t necessarily unique but it was fun to read.

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.
