Steamy Novella. ***4 1/2 Stars***
on January 7, 2014
I really, really enjoyed this western historical novella. The book is well written, and the characters are nicely developed. There is a lot of sexual tension between the characters. Jake is a sexy, alpha male who is so sweet and tender with his lady love, Becky. Becky is young, sweet, and innocent. Jake thinks he's too old for her, not particularly in years (he's eleven years older than she is) but rather in life experience. His past as a soldier in the war and his work as a sheriff has exposed him to the harsher side of life, a side of life that he would prefer Becky know nothing about. For three years Becky has worked for Jake as his housekeeper, cooking and cleaning for him. In the last year, since Becky turned sixteen, Jake has been having an increasingly difficult time resisting the delectable Becky. Things come to a head when Jake realizes that "little" Becky is not so little anymore, and that if he doesn't do something, and quick, he might lose her to another. This is a sweet, sexy story. There is one love scene which, although described, is not, IMO, overly graphic. Furthermore, the language used to describe the love scene is not crude. I highly recommend this novella to anyone who likes this genre of books and who likes a little "steam" to their stories.
