Dani Jackson is a blogger who has a funny, irreverent blog that gets major hits every day. Alas, Dani also has a stalker. On the advice of her 'Threat assessment expert" she puts her blog on hiatus and skedaddles to a small town called Stirling Falls where an old friend of her late father owns a ranch. The idea is that Dani being off the gird (no facebook, no twitter, no youtube! Gasp!) would smoke out the stalker. And at the same time allow her to help out at the ranch. Dani, even though she can't post for awhile, still sees her upcoming adventures as primo blog material.
Once there she runs afoul of the foreman and the man who will be her boss, Adam Cooper. Adam and Dani don't exactly hit it off right away. He snottily calls her princess and she just as snottily calls him Hot Cowboy.
What follows is a fun, funny and sexy look at a snarky blogger and a strong silent hot cowboy as they fall in love.
I truly enjoyed this book. It is exactly the type of book I wish I'd see more in the IR subgenre. This is a new to me author and I was hesitant to go beyond my personal 'never-read-author' price threshold. But the excerpt I read showed so much promise I decided to take a leap of faith. I am glad I did.
This book is well written and well edited. The author obviously knows a lot about horses because she sprinkles in a lot of horse-y talk without sounding pedantic. She is also a a witty writer. Dani has a sometimes snarky sometimes self deprecating sense of humor that it is really cool to hang out in her head. I loved her little blog posts that popped up between each chapters. I also loved hearing about all the wacky things she'd done and all the part-time jobs she's had.Read more ›
Danyiah Jackson is a typical city girl. She likes shopping, sipping latte and blogging. When a crazed stalker begins sending her messages, she's forced to set her blogging, and her many followers, aside and hide away on a remote horse ranch owned by an old friend. For security reasons, her true reason for staying at the ranch remains a secret and instead she's put to work as a ranch hand.
Adam Cooper, the lead horse wrangler, is immediately annoyed by Dani's presence. Her high heels, painted nails and request of a soy chai latte tells him all he needs to know about the type of help she would be. He begins by teaching her lessons on ranch life - the hard way. To his surprise, however, Dani is a quick learner, and within days she's not only keeping up, she actually becomes help in a crisis.
The progression of Dani and Adam's relationship was wonderful to read. The transition from antagonists to lovers was paced wonderfully and I sat at the edge of my seat wondering where the relationship would go next. These two were not star-crossed, their relationship was initially physical, but as they continued, the feelings each felt for the other started to develop and I was rooting for them to find a way to stay together.
The underlying mystery of Dani's stalker took a bit of a backseat and mostly served as a way to place her at the ranch, but it still helped the story along.Read more ›
Head horse wrangler Adam Cooper isn't thrilled about the smart-mouthed young woman suddenly living and working at the ranch--even if she's drop-dead gorgeous. But their verbal sparring sets his body ablaze and gets his heart racing, and he's drawn to her despite his misgivings.
However as Danyiah and Adam fight their attraction, her stalker draws near, putting not only their fledgling love, but their lives on the line.
In Dani's bedroom under the ceiling fan. The setup is so simple, yet maybe one of the most erotic scene's I have ever read.
Honestly, not much. Seriously, I have nothing negative to say about this book.
I'm jus sayin:
I already downloaded the next book in the series and I'm uncorking a bottle so I can sip while I read. It was that good of a book.
