Librarian Callie Barnes has visions of reading and relaxing—and maybe having a few too many drinks—on her girls’ weekend away. Her hopes are crushed when her friends pull into a dude ranch instead of a spa, and she refuses to say longer than one night. That is…until she realizes the ranch is owned by sinfully sexy, and dangerously rugged, Wes Braden—the subject of her late-night fantasies.
Fearless rancher Wes Braden thinks he’s the luckiest guy on the planet when the sweet, sexy librarian from his hometown shows up at his ranch. Their connection is white-hot, making it impossible for either to ignore their carnal desires. Wes is more than willing to convert sweet Callie from chick lit to a world of erotic romance, but Callie ties sex to love, and Wes avoids commitment like the plague.
Callie is thrust into physically demanding activities that ignite her deepest fears. Luckily, Wes is as tender as he is strong, and he’s there every step of the way to help her find her inner strength. With Callie’s influence, Wes might even discover that he’s been nursing a few fears of his own. Passion pulls Callie and Wes from their safe, comfortable lives into each other’s arms, and they’re about to find out just how alike they really are.
Thank you to Shaz and JB for letting me take part in this tour.
I am a massive Braden's fan so I'm glad to say this book did not disappoint.
Callie is a sweet girl who is unaware of how amazing she is. She is scared of heights, deep water and creepy crawlies. she grew up in suburbia while her friends grew up on farms. She has moved away from all her friends and family to take a dream job. She doesn't know a single person in Trusty. I don't think I could move somewhere where I knew no-one. I moved from London to Ipswich to live with my boyfriend and although I didn't know many people I at least knew him and a few of his friends, and even that was tough.
Wes is your typical Braden boy, kind, caring and smoking hot. Wes has been around the block should we say but he's getting to the stage where he doesn't want that anymore. Ever since he met Callie in the library he can't get her out of his head. Things get even worse when the girls show up at his ranch. Wes has just edged into being my favourite Braden boy.
Callie has the best friends a girl could ask for. Although they pulled a fast one on her they did it to pull her out of her shell, to make her realise how strong she really is.
Sweets is the cutest little dog and the porcupine scene had me on the edge of my seat.
Wes is my absolute favourite Braden.
I can't wait to read the rest of the Braden cousins' stories.
