From the Back Cover

Against all odds, the Sorentino sisters saved their family's rundown New Mexico ranch, but the youngest has a dream that just may ruin their hard-earned peace--unless a certain sexy cowboy lawyer changes her mind...

Jenna Sorentino is as independent as they come. Despite her wild past, she's grown up enough to keep quiet about the identity of her baby's daddy, go to night college--and hide her plan to escape tiny Catcher Creek. She's also stopped dreaming of happily ever after--except in the case of gorgeous, rugged, Santa Fe native Matt Roenick. Too bad the oil rights attorney acts like he barely knows she's alive...

Matt knows only too well that Jenna's alive--in fact, she's driving him crazy with desire. But Matt's got his reasons for resisting her. And when her son's father shows up, those reasons multiply. Trouble is, Jenna's secrets are more complicated than he imagined, and forgetting her isn't as easy as he'd hoped. Matt knows life can be messy as hell. For Jenna, maybe it's time he got dirty...

My Review:
This is one of those books...when I started reading it, there are a lot of secrets and I kept turning the page trying to figure out what exactly are all the details were. Jenna has secrets. Matt has secrets. And while they aren't life-changing, they felt real in their importance to both these characters and they have good reasons for keeping them secret. I guessed a few of them, but I didn't guess any of the hard details and some of them were pretty surprising...but, no spoilers.

But secrets...when you want to get involved with a lawyer, is that really a good thing? Probably not, but Jenna's secrets aren't just her own to keep, plus she has to protect her son and family. And I know that's vague, but I loved Jenna for keeping quiet like she did. She stood through it all alone for so long and she was so young. This woman is amazing and honestly, she's just trying to survive and keep everyone around her okay. They just have no idea what she's going through.

And Matt with his wallet full of pictures. Oh, my heart hurt for him and the struggles he's had which were so horrifyingly believable. It would be so easy to see what happened to him, happening to any guy out there.

These are two characters at a crossroad. They have amazing chemistry and have been friends for a few months which makes their relationship seem like a given, but those secrets... They have the ability to hurt...a lot. It was an interesting book. Every time I thought the story was going to unfold a certain way, Melissa Cutler surprised me and went the complete opposite. I love her writing for that reason.

In reading the first two books in this series, the glimpses we get of Jenna, I knew her story was going to be a doozy. Cutler did not let me down. Jenna has had a rough life and been through a LOT before Matt comes into it. It was no surprise to me that she was on the defensive with men, I was glad to see her walls crumble and her giving Matt a chance.

What I didn’t expect, but fit this story OH so well, was Matt’s painful past and history. And how he viewed himself. I just wanted to hug him all the time. Even when he was making me crazy with his stupid ways of thinking, I wanted to smack him and then hug him.

My attention was grabbed from moment one to discover Jenna’s secrets and watch her work through starting a relationship with Matt. As expected of the author, this book was not a cookie cutter version of the secret baby trope, No, it was so much more and so different. There is a lot going on in Jenna’s life at the opening of the book, She’s hiding lots of secrets from her sister’s, her son, and the town in general. It was exciting as I read along to learn more of these secrets, Jenna’s reasons for keeping them, her feelings about the secrets and the reactions of those around her when they discovered them. In addition to Jenna's secrets, Matt has some pretty big ones of his own and he's afraid to let them out. As he struggles with all he's hiding and everything he knows he wants but is afraid he doesn't deserve, I fell more and more in love with him myself!

I won’t spoil the story by going into specifics but there were so so many moments in this story that I loved. Watching the sisters, Amy, Rachel, and Jenna finally get to KNOW each other in ways they had never been open to before was one of the best.

Spotlight & Review: How To Rope A Real Man: Catcher Creek #3 by Melissa Cutler [...]
Publication Date: May 6, 2014
Reading In Pajamas/ Dawn & Cori
Rated: 4.5 Stars


Perfection! How to Rope A Real Man had everything I look for in a great story! I loved the interactions between the characters and the story was well written and flowed easily. There was danger, suspense, emotion and sizzling romance.

Jenna has her life all mapped out and the plan is to finish her degree in a few weeks and skip town. She is convinced this is the only way to protect her son. The town she lives in is so narrow minded and Jenna figures its only a matter of time before the small town knows her secret. And then she meets Matt. Matt is everything she would want in a man, if she wanted a man. Matt doesn't get involved with single moms. He has had his heart broken too many times. When this has not worked out in the past, he not only loses the relationship, he loses the family too. Matt wants nothing more than to be a dad. Matt and Jenna's seem to connect on every other level. Jenna knows one night with Matt would blow her mind and Matt knows one night with Jenna would never be enough. When they do come together they nearly burn up the sheets as their passion explodes. Jenna and Matt both fall hard for each other quick. Jenna still has to get out of town, and when her son's father comes back into town, she might have to leave sooner than she thought. Jenna's priority is protecting her son, and she will stop at nothing to keep him safe. Jenna and Matt love each other, but can they live without each other and is love enough?

I recommend this book and the series for romance lovers. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone, but I recommend reading them all. Melissa Cutler is an author to watch!
