Book Description via Goodreads:

Cheryl Brooks, well known for her blazing hot love scenes, presents a smoking new erotic romance series set at a Wyoming ranch and featuring sexy-as-sin cowboys.

When widow Angela McClure decides to let loose and start a secret affair with a younger ranch hand, she inflames rancher Dusty Jackson's long simmering desire. Both men are irresistible - and forbidden - so Angela forms a plan to divert her old-fashioned father's suspicions: flirt with all of "her cowboys.' The new competition makes Circle Bar K ranch hotter than it's ever been before...



So, I was originally drawn to this book because of the cover. I guess that was my first mistake- we all know you're not supposed to do that. I've been on a cowboy romance reading kick, so when I saw this cover and read the blurb, it sounded right up my alley. What's not to love about a group of sexy cowboys? Unfortunately, that fantasy just didn't happen for me.

I have no idea what genre this book is supposed to be. It came off as funny like a comedy at parts, but I don't even know if that was intended. It's kind of a western romance, but it honestly reads more like erotica. And to be honest, I didn't even enjoy the sex scenes. I love erotica when it's done well, but these didn't do anything for me at all. They happened insanely fast and made everything seem cheesy and in poor taste. It was too much.

That's, in short, my problem with this book: too much. Too many cowboys, too many genres, too much dissatisfying sex scenes.

I think this is one of those books that a lot of other people will probably like, so if you like sex and cowboys, give it a go. But for me this was a miss, and I won't be looking for the next book in the series.

I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.


  1. Aw, I'm so bummed this was a flop, it sounded so good. Kinda glad I lost the giveaway for it that I had entered now.
