Amy Jo (AJ) has been secretly in love with Cord since she was five years old. She is now 22, he is 37. His wife didn't like ranching and left him. He is divorced and raising his son. AJ flirts with him and tells him she wants him to take her virginity. He feels too old for her, but he is also in lust with her. So he agrees. He is bossy and controlling. He hides his eagerness to be with her. For example, when she knocks at the door he counts to ten before answering it. She is like a puppy, eager to please and compliant. He starts out teaching her ways to please a man. But he also pleases her. He tells her this is a temporary relationship and must be kept a secret.
AJ is a student in Colorado. She came to Wyoming for a few weeks to help her mother who is ill. Cord is in Wyoming.
Bossy controlling guy with sweet compliant girl. I liked the emotional development between the two. The major question and conflict is "will Cord ever be able to love again?" He has closed off his heart. The story between AJ and Cord is a simple story with some arguments and conflicts, nothing unusual or too deep. There's a sweet feel good ending. There are some side stories with Cord's relatives that were interesting but needed more development. I wanted to know more about Kade and Skylar, Dag, and Colt. However the purpose of the book is sex, so don't expect a fully-developed-in-depth novel. The sex scenes are erotic and hot. There is a little bit of the Dom/sub, but not too heavy. There is group sex (3 men 1 woman), gay group sex (4 men with each other), rear door activity, light bondage, spanking, and sex toys.
Story length: 252 pages. Swearing language: strong, including religious swear words. Sexual language: strong/erotic. Number of sex scenes: 16. Approximate number of sex scene pages: 58. Setting: current day Wyoming and Colorado. Copyright: 2009. Genre: erotic contemporary romance.
Cord McKay is the oldest McKay and feels the responsibility of helping the rest of the family on the McKay Ranch. He is defintely not looking for a relationship. Having already been married to a flighty girl from Seattle who up and left him 6 months after their son Ky was born. Now 4 years later the Mother is demanding visitation and Cord is free for the first time in years.
One night at the local watering hole Cord notices a pair of legs that lead to a way short mini skirt and can't take his eyes off her. When he realizes it's little Amy Jo, his sons baby sitter he can't believe it at first. After a light flirtation and AJ's request that he be her first they decide that until Cord's son comes home AJ will spend every night with Cord. The teaching is about to begin.
AJ is a likable character. I could totally relate to her vision that Cord was the one for her and that she was willing to sacrifice her heart to have what time she could with him.
Cord was just as easy to like. Pure ALPHA male through and through. This DOM/Submissive story was very tasteful and erotic. I never felt that he meant to hurt or humiliate her in any way. It was as much a learing experience for him as much as her. I could feel the love they had for each other through the whole book. She struggled with the fact that the relationship was only for a short time plus the fact that her whole life was changing around her (Sister's divorce and Mother selling the Ranch). Cord struggled with the obvious feeling he had for her right away and the fact he had already had one wife leave him so it was only right the AJ would too, not to mention the age difference.
The back stories were very interesting but could have been fleshed out a little more. Colt's struggles with his addiction would make a nice story and a little more explanation for Dag would work. Kane and Kade the twin cousins of Cord have their own problems and I can't wait to read their stories in much more detail. Not to mention Keeley. She is not going to fall lightly that is for sure. I can't wait to see her get her own story and can just imagine the pure Alpha male that awaits. Although why leave it with just one. She's strong enough for more. I personally can't wait for her story.
This is actually a sequel to "Long Hard Ride" and "Rode Hard and Put up Wet". So I would suggest you read the other two first.
Overall the story was good. The dialogue was snappy and real. Very sexy, steamy, and worth a permanent spot on my keeper bookcase. I will definitely be adding Ms. James to my Author list to keep track of.
You would not be disappointed with this story line or with the writing style. It seemed to flow very nicely for Ms. James. With a little more work I believe she could be the next Julie Garwood or Julia Quinn.
You will not be disappointed.
