Gavin wants nothing to do with ranch life. Not since the ugly fallout he had with his father over eight years ago. But when he agrees to come back, harboring Jade and her son for a time, Gavin falls in love with life on the land once again. Above that, he finds his heart has been captured by his lovely house guest, Jade Miller.
After reservations on both parts, the two are finally ready to open up and give their new-found love a try. Only they aren’t in the clear just yet, and as a dark and deadly threat falls upon them, Gavin finds that his bad-boy past may have led the danger right to their door.
Sigh. I feel like such a sappy, happy girl right now. :) I have to give credit where it's due. Kimberly Krey- I love you. Thank you for writing the perfect romance to escape my from my laundry and cooking realities. Seriously though, Kimberly is a writer with a gift for writing a clean romance with some sizzle. I read her first book, Cassie's Cowboy Crave, when I signed on for a blog tour. We were able to work together for a blog post for that and it was so much fun. (Click here to read that) I have become her (maybe unhealthy and a bit stalker-ish) fan and I'm going to be waiting after every book for the next one to come out. Kimberly is funny. She always makes me smile. I'm so happy promote her books- not just because I like her, but because I love these books.
Jade's Cowboy Crush is a fun book. The banter between Jade and Gavin is good, the attraction is there and the tension build up is palpable. Um, yummy. :) There are some steamin' kissin' scenes. Oh yeah. The thank you kiss by the pond? sizzle.
I loved Jade's devotion to her son- to do anything to protect him. As a mother I can relate to that. Jade has always worked hard to support her family on her own. She is strong but not so strong and independent that she felt unreal.
Gavin is the best "brooding misunderstood" bad boy. He's built up a wall of defense based on past hurts. He's been in trouble and done things he shouldn't have. He really doesn't want anything to do with Jade and her son at first but follows through with it for purely selfish reasons. Best choice he ever made, I think. :)
I loved the reconciliation, the sense of family, the forgiveness and the little bit of suspense thrown in there too. It was love for me because it's really in my favorite genre pocket. I love a fun, steamy but clean romance to snuggle into. It was definitely in my happy zone.
I have to thank Kimberly Krey for sending me a copy of this book for review. It was like Christmas a few days early.
Content: a few instances of mild swearing and some steamy kissing.
