Publisher's Summary

Kennedy Stacey couldn't be more down on her luck. Her father, a rodeo cowboy, recently passed away after a long, expensive illness. The medical bills, combined with his habit of gambling and the fact that she had to quit her job to take care of him, has left her homeless and with no place to go but back to the rodeo. She tracks down Luke Delaney, one of her father's protégés, and asks for help.
Luke Delaney thought of Red Stacey as a father. Kennedy didn't call him when Red was sick, so he didn't get to say good-bye to the man he loved like a father. He can't forgive her for that, and turns her away.
But when she turns to his brother Liam for help instead, Luke steps forward, partly because of his concern of how his brother the player will treat her, and partly because he knows her father would want him to.
Since she's homeless, she has to stay in Luke's tiny RV. At first close quarters lead to sparring as they fight their attraction - and she fights to have some kind of independence when she's leaning so heavily on him. But nature can only hold out so long, and despite their better judgment, they give in to their desires.
But Kennedy is afraid he's taking her body in payment, and he's afraid of the feelings he has for her as he gets to know her again, the feelings he hasn't let himself feel since they were 16 years old.

Hot little cowboy novella

I don't get too many cowboy books but I had to jump on this when it came to my attention. It was a short steamy read and I really enjoyed it. Kennedy (h) was down on her luck. She had to quit her job to care for her dying dad. Luke (H) is a rodeo cowboy who has a dirty mouth and a heart of gold. His alpha possessive streak was pretty damn sexy too. The two are childhood friends who come together again after the death of Kennedy's dad. She needs his help because she literally has nowhere to go and no money to get there. I liked that the two were pretty honest with each other and didn't play games. I do wish that the ending wasn't so abrupt. It's not a cliffhanger, but it would have been nice to get a glimpse of the happy couple a few months or years down the line. So the story was tied up but just not in a pretty bow. Make sense?

Bad Hot Cowboy

What did you like best about this story?

It is a story of Bad, hot cowboy. I ove bad boy cowboys. The only not good is that the book was the ending. It was so rushed. But I hope there will be more in the next book.
