Luke tossed his drink back. "Nothing doing. You're not allowed to eat after nine, or drink anything after midnight. Remember?" He made a show of looking at his watch. It was already a quarter past twelve.

Horse rancher, Luke Galloway, is sent by his business partner, Sam, to break the bad news to Sam’s millionaire daughter that her work-a-day-dad (whom she hasn’t seen in years) is dying and wants her to be at his bedside in his last days.
Despite the fact that she barely knows her horse rancher father, Rustina (Rusty) Paris drops everything and rushes to her father’s home in Kentucky with Luke—an annoying and sarcastic man she dislikes almost at first sight.
The big problem is—Sam is not dying. It’s a ploy on Sam’s part to bring together the two people he loves most in the world, Rusty and Luke Galloway. What follows is trouble and romance…and way more trouble.
I enjoyed this story.
It wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, to be honest. When I bought it, I was trying to fill a commitment to my reading club to read a book of humor. The blurb on this one mentioned humor and it looked interesting, so…I bought it.
There were moments that I found humorous. But, I wouldn’t call it a comedy. That’s not on the author, however. It’s on me for making an assumption.
Don’t misunderstand me, though. When I realized it a was (sexy) romance, it’s not like I threw it across the room and swore to never finish it. In fact, the opposite was true. I told myself I’d find another comedic book to read and I delved right into Loves, Lies and High Heels.
I will say, I don’t usually read romances. I used to, when I was in my twenties. However, I outgrew them. Especially when so many of them were found to be so formulaic. Love, Lies & High Heels wasn’t any different from the rest in that, I’m afraid. I knew almost from page one what would happen in every chapter. Like other romance stories, it too seemed to follow the generic formula.
HOWEVER, since it’s been (probably) 20 years since I’ve read a sexy romance, it was a great change of pace for me.
I DID truly enjoy it.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a lot of romance…with a little sex.
The humour in this book is spot on. I'm glad that I found it, and I highly recommend it. It's an easy read, no thinking required...just an easy going cowboy-meets-princess romance.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and read the book in one sitting. Will look out for more by this author!
When we meet Rusty, she comes across as a typical spoilt rich kid, who has everything, but has never had to work a day in her life for it. She's not unlikeable though and has inherited her fortune from her mother, who has sadly died. She hasn't had a relationship with her father since she was a little girl. Her father, Sam, has always regretted this and has decided it's time they tried to form some sort of relationship. Out of fear of rejection, he sends his best friend and colleague, Luke, to Rusty with a lie. He is to tell her that Sam is dying and wishes to see her before it's too late. He doesn't think she'll see him otherwise. Rusty rushes to be at her father's side, regretting the time they've wasted too. To some this might seem a bit unbelievable, but I think many people soon put the past behind them when they think time is running out to make amends. I think we're all guilty, sometimes, of assuming we'll have our family and loved ones forever!
Anyway, it's quite clear from the start that Rusty and Luke fancy the pants off each other, although they act as though they can't stand the sight of each other! They're like a pair of moody teenagers who can't admit their obvious attraction to themselves, let alone one another. I seriously wanted to bang their heads together on more than one occasion, although I did find them quite amusing at times also! Luke had been hurt in the past though and Rusty has never had a man make her feel the way Luke does, and it unsettles her. Their relationship is a prime example of two people not communicating properly and also how you shouldn't eavesdrop on someone else's conversation and jump to all the wrong conclusions!
I'm a true believer in love at first sight and it was obvious from the start that Rusty and Luke were made for each other. Thankfully they get their act together eventually, but not before some heart-break along the way.
I definitely recommend this book if you like a love story, which gets a bit raunchy at times, but isn't always plain sailing, with likeable characters, who might drive you a bit crazy at times.
There is a happy ending also, and who doesn't like a happy ending?
I have already added book 2 to my TBR list.
Because there was nothing else on my Kindle at the time, I continued and I have to say that the story got better and better - in the end I couldn't put the book down as I wanted to see how it finished. Yes, some of the story is predictable but not enough to make it unreadable. There were times during the book that I would gladly have banged the two main characters, Luke and Rusty's heads together!
I'm not going to tell the story or let you know how it finishes, that it for you to find out. Let me say that it is well worth the 'free' price on Kindle at the moment and I would have been happy to pay to read this book.
Well you have nothing to lose, so why not spend a few hours enjoying this book like I did!!!
