Book Description

Book #1 in the Six Pack Ranch series (Rocky Mountain HEAT) by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Vivian Arend is available for FREEFind it here: amazon.com/dp/B005F0WRB0
---------

Nothing comes easy. You've gotta work for it.

Six Pack Ranch, Book 3

Matt Coleman always figured at this point in his life, he'd be settled down with a family. Since his ex split for the big city, though, no way will he give anyone else the chance to drop-kick his heart. Physical pleasure? Hell, yeah, he'll take--and give--with gusto, but nothing more.

Hope Meridan is working long hours to hold on to her new quilt shop, going it alone since her sister/business partner ran off. Sex? Right, like she's got the time. Not that she doesn't have the occasional dirty fantasy about Matt. Fat chance he'd dream of knocking boots with her--the younger sister of the woman who dumped him. Nope, she'll just have to settle for the F-word.

Friends would be far easier if there wasn't something combustible going on between them. And when casual interest starts to grow into something more, their tenuous bond strengthens in the heat of desire. But it may not survive the hurricane-force arrival of the last person either of them ever wanted to see again...


Warning: Small-town rivals, men in pursuit and family meddling--in good and bad ways. Look for a cowboy who knows how to rope, ride and rein in a hell of a lot more than eight seconds of sheer bliss.

Review

"Vivian Arend pours intense passion into her novels, and Rocky Mountain Heat is no exception." Kellie Tilton~Library Journal

The bitter cold of Alberta, Canada, is made toasty warm by the super-sexy Coleman brothers of Six Pack Ranch. ...skillfully written erotic passion...  
~ Publishers Weekly
 
The Six Pack Ranch series is one not to miss, and has a permanent spot on my favorite series and my 'will read over and over again' shelves.

Book Description

Since Matt’s cheating ex split for the big city, no way is he giving anyone else the chance to drop-kick his heart. Physical pleasure? He’ll take—and give—with gusto, but nothing more.
Hope is scrambling to keep her quilt shop afloat after her sister/business partner ran off. Sex? Like she’s got the time. Besides, Matt would never knock boots with the younger sister of the woman who dumped him.
Yet there’s something combustible going on between them, and when it grows into more, it may not survive the arrival of the last person they ever wanted to see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a good romance with no misunderstandings March 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I so enjoyed reading this novel, in fact, I liked it the best of the three. I felt so sorry for Matt in the first 2 books and was glad to see he met "the one" even if it was the younger sister of his ex-girlfriend. Hope was perfect for Matt and I loved the way the romance developed. They forged a friendship before hopping into bed and the connection between Matt and Hope was so genuine. But what I liked the best was the author's skill at writing a sensual romance without the stupid misunderstandings that are so prevalent in todays' romances. There were two scenes where either Matt or Hope could have stormed off in a rage after Helen's shenanigans to break them apart but they trusted each other enough to learn the truth. This was a refreshing and very steamy romance and I look forward to the rest of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wild Cowboy Lovin March 15, 2012

Rocky Mountain Desire
Reviewed by Francesca & posted at Under The Covers Book Blog

Sexy and sweet cowboy yummy-goodness at its best! Rocky Mountain Desire and Matt Coleman rocked!!! I thoroughly enjoy my time with Ms. Arend's Canadian cowboys and Matt was no slouch! I know some of you readers have been waiting a lot longer for his story, but since I just recently discovered this series I was lucky enough not to have to wait too long for it. So let me tell you about Matt.

We have been through a lot with Matt. In book one he was dating his high school sweetheart, the only girl he'd ever had sex with (same for her, he was the guy she gave her virginity to). The sweet as honey middle Coleman brother wanted desperately to marry her and start their life together. She had other plans. First it started with wanting to have another man added in the mix of the sexcapades for spicyness. When that wasn't enough, she went chasing the dream of the big city and the occasional orgy. Cheated on him and then ran out of town, leaving him high and dry, humiliated and destroyed.

We suffered through all that with him. So when this book started out and he falls in immediately lust with a sometimes "dancer", I was dubious. When we find out this said "dancer" is also his ex's little sister, all my red flags went up. I'm not a big fan of the little sister of the ex girlfriend having had a crush on the guy since forever and then all of a sudden they can make a relationship work.

Well, I am here to admit that Ms. Arend shut me up on that, brilliantly! Matt and Hope are so perfect together! She gives as good as she gets, she's no floormat with either Matt or her sister.

Matt Coleman may have gotten hooked into planning his brother Daniel's bachelor party but he's not all that interested in family fun. He's still not over his cheating ex-girlfriend dumping him and skipping town but he'd really like some female companionship of the doesn't-stick-around kind. Just as he's pondering his lack of options, one of the dancers hired for the night's entertainment catches his eye - she looks a whole lot like his ex. The dancer knew Matt and had been attracted to him, but instead of his ex, the horrible Helen, she was her younger sister, Hope. There's embarrassment all around, with a double helping for Hope - not only was she drooling over Matt, she's got a respectable quilt shop and was only there dancing as a favor for a friend and really doesn't want it getting out.

They don't see each other for months, time that Matt still needed to get past some of the worst of his bitterness toward Helen. He still feels a little weird about Hope - he's attracted to her, but should he be? He rescues her from a snowbank and they rescue each other from hypothermia - his family helps with the rest, giving him the push he needs to start seeing Hope for who she is, not just as Helen's sister.

All of the Coleman brothers are pretty exceptional but Matt has been my favorite. Helen managed to make him doubt himself and there weren't any simple fixes even if he is a natural Grade A Alpha. When Helen left Rocky Mountain, she didn't just dump Matt, she left Hope in the lurch too, on the hook for rent and solely responsible for the quilt shop. At odd moments in the story, they would bond as survivors of Helen and at others, struggle to hold onto each other in spite of her. Hope and Matt have some unbelievably hot love scenes - seriously break the ice water out hot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Well Developed Characters, hot, hot, hot. August 19, 2014
By by rnj1
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Matt deserved a HEA after his heartbreak, and so did Hope, just for making all the right choices and staying true to herself. I'm so glad these two found each other.

And more than that, since it wasn't a head long rush into sex, it gave the readers a chance to see really good characters develop into a relationship meant for them.

Oh, don't get me wrong, it was plenty hot, but I'm also a fan of stretching out the anticipation until I'm actually praying for the two characters to hook up. And that's what we readers got, hot anticipation, Coleman Style.

Love that family.

It also gave Ms. Arend a chance to show us that she was able to use plot devices to further a story and make them important, and nit secondary thoughts. I felt like everything that happened, from the incident with Hope's car to coming face-to-face with someone from their past was truly dealt with, and not glossed over, as she's been apt to do in previous books.

Onto book 4.
