From the title alone, I knew I was probably going to like this one, but once I started reading, it was love. I loved the romance, loved the hot sex, loved the sweet and sexy interaction between h/H, and loved this hero most of all. I have a major thing for alpha male heroes, especially those heroes like Colt Waggoner. He's gruff and a little surly, rough-edged and prickly with a bit of a chip on his shoulder from being known around town as one of those "white trash Waggoners." Colt's got that military edge due to being an ex-Marine, and he's also protective and possessive. I loved that about him, that not only is he a tough alpha, he's a sweet guy underneath all the scowls. Just my type.

Yes, he does something jerky at the beginning of the story, but really, would you mind if he lied to you and tricked you into being 'stranded' with him all alone in the woods? Me neither. That is one of my favorite things to read in romance, when the h/H are kind of forced to spend time together, relying on each other, seeking warmth from each other, talking and getting to know each other under different circumstances. And, after thinking of the heroine, Beth Ann, as perfect and golden and pretty much untouchable, Colt loved having Ms. Prim and Proper under his control. Except his trick leads not to revenge and to showing the mayor's daughter a lesson; it leads to seeing Beth Ann as a real person, someone sexy and fun to be around.

Beth Ann has finally cut her cheating azzhat fiance loose, and now she's ready to live her life on her terms. And part of that is doing things that no one would think perfectly nice Beth Ann would do, like having a one-night stand, some no-strings-attached sex. And who better to get down and dirty with than Colt?

The Care and Feeding of an Alpha Male is Book 2 in Jessica Clare's most recent series. It's a fabulous read, with engaging dialogue, sexy but realistic characters and sizzling hot sex scenes.

I love the evolution of the characters. At the start, Beth Ann comes across as a little spoiled, a little bit immature. But as you get to know her, she morphs into an intelligent, caring and funny woman who just wants everyone to see her for who she really is: a strong, capable woman who knows her own mind. Colt, in the beginning, comes across as a total jerk. He's rude, inconsiderate and has a really low opinion of Beth Ann, someone he really doesn't know all that well. But as he gets to know Beth Ann, the respect, love and admiration he grows for her is obvious to see. I love how organic the shift is between Beth Ann and Colt. Though it happens quite early in the book, it doesn't seem forced and both the characters grow within the relationship over time, making what is essentially a short period of time, seem like a more realistic experience.

The other characters in the book are vivid and hillarious. The interaction and dialogue within the book is truly fantastic and really comes across as credible and realistic. The story flows well and is very well paced.

I definitely recommend reading Jessica Clare's The Girl's Guide to (Man)Hunting, which is the first book in this series. It's just as tantalising as The Care and Feeding of an Alpha Male.

Overall, I recommend this book for anyone who is look for a fabulous and saucy romance book, with hillarious and awesome dialogue, fantastic and realistic characters, and plenty of chemistry and smokin' sex scenes.

The Care and Feeding of an Alpha Male is the second book in Jessica Clare's Bluebonnet series. The series revolves around three high school buddies who have gotten together several years after graduating to start their own business teaching survival training, in their home town of Bluebonnet Texas. The first book, The Girls Guide to (Man)Hunting, was Dane's story. In this book we learn more about Colt Waggoner. The second of the trio.

Colt has always hated his small home town. After all he was always one of "Those Waggoner Boys". He grew up poor, and on the wrong side of the tracks. His mother left when he was young, leaving him and his three younger brothers to be raised by his father. The day after graduation, Colt enlisted in the Marines, and got away from his family and the town that always hated him. It was an injury that ended his career with the Marine Corps, and sent him back to Bluebonnet.

It was a known fact around town that the Mayor's daughter Beth Ann and her long time fiance would marry. After all, Allan was, in the town's eye, perfect. Handsome, wealthy, he had connections and came from a fine upstanding family. He was perfect for her. Except for the fact that he liked to sleep with any woman he could. A fact that Beth Ann keep secret, to protect his reputation and save his business. But as far as she is concerned, they were over. Now all she had to do was convince Allan of that small fact.

When Beth Ann finds her self stuck out in a rainstorm, cut off from the main roads, and soaked to the bone. Colt decides she needs to learn a small lesson in humility. So he convinces her that the river is flooding, and they are cut off from any way back to town.
