I happen to agree with another review in regards to his manhandling of the heroine. I don't find it sexy at all. I think I've made up my mind not to go any further reading this one even with the mystery (which really isn't one) of who is illegally killing animals in the park unsolved. I don't see how this guy could ever redeem himself or how the heroine should ever find it in her heart to forgive him for manhandling her but I know the author will allow it, and this won't give me my HEA.
I can't recommend this one and will delete it from my kindle. I'm glad it was free!
Britt just graduated from college with a double degree and has plans to work in her father’s company in Chicago, but she accepts a summer job at a ranch in Colorado. One that she has worked for during the summers while she was in college as a wrangler in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Clean fresh air is what she loves, not the stuffy city life that she is bound too at Lucas Technology’s in Chicago, her father’s company. This summer will be her last at the ranch and just the break she needs before she heads to the windy city and her over bearing, manipulating father.
Britt is a pretty young woman with a mass of blond curls and beautiful eyes, but she’s also sassy, bossy, and bold and speaks her own mind. She’s her own woman and has always had a strict rule when working at the ranch. No flings, no attachments, just friends with the men that she works with and there are a whole lot of them at this ranch.
Upon her arrival at the ranch she goes alone on a camping trip to clear her mind of the fog from graduation and her fathers, in her mind betrayal. But here in this part of the Rocky Mountain National Park there is a poacher on the loose killing the big horn sheep for their heads. Little does she know she is going to be pulled into the drama that is beginning to unfold in this beautiful country?
Then comes National Park Ranger Joel Morgan. He thinks she is just a rich girl out for a camping trip with no permit to do so in a restricted area, especially with the trouble in the area. So naturally he gets all manly doing his job and his smart remarks does nothing but fire the flames in Britt. So she conveniently doesn’t tell him that she is actually employed at the Highland’s Ranch and doesn’t need a permit. With the approach of a snow storm they end up having to share a tent that night and the next morning they slowly start making their way back to the ranch and ranger station when opportunity strikes and of course Britt seizes the moment, ends up taking Joel’s horse making him have to walk the nine miles to get out. This is where the sparks really begin to fly and both of them are throwing them.
This was a really good book in my opinion. I loved the mystery part that the author tells about and the characters are fabulous. The way the author introduces them, you will relate too right from the first page. Britt is funny but also holds very tight to her rule of no flings while at the ranch. Joel moves around a lot and is only at the Park due to the poacher which he has been brought into catch and put behind bars.
There are a good many secondary characters in this book and the author briefly touches on them with their own history which I liked. It makes them actual people instead of just names in the story. And Joel, all muscle, dark haired and sexy sounds like is dream come true.
The author keeps this book moving, but you won’t find any historical facts about the area in this book. Which I kinda wish she would maybe have added some as that are parts of a book that I like. You can tell throughout that the characters opened themselves up to the author as she writes their story. It was easy to read and follow; with only a couple boo boos in the writing itself which could be overlooked as this is a full version book not a short story.
There is really only one love scene which you know is coming, expected in romance books, and it was written very tastefully making is sensual, sexy and full of lovin’. I enjoyed the author’s style of storytelling and I didn’t want to put this book down. There is a little action in the book, some mishaps that the characters get themselves into especially Britt. She’s just not one that likes to take orders very well, even when it’s for her own well being. But you know us women like to do things on our own sometimes.
They mystery in the story line, well you just won’t know who the bad guy is. There are just too many suspects and the poacher begins to enjoy his nasty deeds which throw the mystery into even deeper water so to speak. When the author does start unraveling the mystery for you she moves with it and it will all come together in your mind. You see, the poacher not only loves the thrill of the kill but he also has a deep vendetta against Britt and Joel is bound and determined to keep her safe, whatever the cost.
I have to say that I will read the other books in this series because I thoroughly enjoyed the refreshing way this author tells her stories and I loved the Rocky Mountain setting and country way of life even though there are modern conveniences, restaurants and of course the Highlands Ranch itself.
So the questions while reading this book? Well the first and foremost in your mind is going to be who the poacher is? Does Britt give up her little rule of no flings and finally get it on with Joel? If you take the time to read this book I think you’ll like it very much and I highly recommend it as a must read.
Note to the author and publisher: I want to tell you how grateful I am that the first book in your series was a standalone story and not a mere cliffhanger. A lot of authors and publishers have been leaving the reader completely unresolved in their free first book releases when releasing in e-book format. I would much rather a story be complete; now I want to get to know the other characters the author teased us with. That is what is going to make me go to Amazon to buy the next book in the series! Thank you so very much for a terrific story, and for trusting me as a reader and a customer.
