Chemistry was never this sexy in high school.
In her sizzling new series, USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby sets the stage for a passionate reunion under the breathtaking Montana sky.
Cara Donovan's summer tutoring job is turning out to be a challenge - and not just because of her troubled 12-year-old student. It's his uncle Josh who's the real problem. If problem is the word for an irresistibly cocky, muscle-bound rancher with a taste for tight Levi's and shameless flirtation.…
Cara is nothing like the wallflower Josh King remembers good-naturedly teasing in high school. This Cara is gorgeous, confident, fun. From the moment the fiery teacher steps foot on his family's Lazy K Ranch, the stubborn playboy is determined to corral her. So what happens when his luscious lover takes over the reins?
The first in a steamy trilogy, Kristen Proby's enthralling novel is filled to the brim with one hardworking family's triumphs and challenges, all the wild adventure of the modern West, and a whole lot of titillating fun.

3.5 stars Good but not great

This is the book in a nutshell.
Ranch in Montana
Sexy, alpha-male (w/o being obnoxious), kind, loyal, loving cowboy - Josh
Pretty, smart, kind, loyal and loving teacher - Cara
Throw in a sad and hurt boy (Seth); a pained brother (Josh's twin) with some PTSD from Afgan and a nutty BFF (Cara's BFF) and you have a very lite sweet romance.

I think the book started off strong. I thought that Seth would play a larger, more angst-y role in the book. Would have added more depth to the book.

The characters are fairly superficially written. Meaning that I garnered very little understanding beyond them being good-looking nice people. Although Cara's insecurity about being fat (although my guess is that she's a size 8/10 instead of a 0/2, so she feels fat and the obnoxious jealous caddy women call her 'fat' b/c she isn't emaciated?). But her insecurity got really old. The more she complains about it, points it out or let's other women make her feel badly about her weight- the less I liked her.

I gave this book 3 1/2 stars I can 'like' books that are totally romance-lite (oh - with lots of 'steamy' scenes). Sometimes it's easy to read a book that doesn't make you cry, churn your stomach or make you sweat things out. Just a very lite, quickly forgotten, but a sweet innocent ride along the way. (formulaic - hot 'popular' sought after bachelor male runs into former shy high school colleague, falls immediately for her, pursues her romantically, brings her out of her shell, things get bad, she runs away, he chases her, they promise to love each other, the end. Oh, and it's obvious there is another book in the series - Josh's brother is back from his tour and needs to reunite with his son and his family...more to come.
I am not a fan of dual narration however, Deacon Lee and Elizabeth Louise did a good job with the delivery of the story

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"


A very nice Contemporary romance that flows really well and gently meanders through Josh and Cara's budding, building then blooming relationship. There were a couple of b*tches, a tree where it shouldn't be, a slight hiccup along the way, lots of sex, some great secondary characters made up of family and friends and a lost, mentally abused 12 year old boy.

Although Josh was all Alpha don't expect the Chaps, Spurs and frustrated cowboy that goes with it as he was kind, thoughtful, loving and said all the right things to make Cara (and me) melt and Cara's a sweet-natured Teacher (unless provoked). This really is a touching, tender, sweet, sexy and romantic listen about two people that were meant for each other and this listen is like gently floating in the middle of a pool and starring up at the clear blue skies with absolutely nothing on your mind but the pure, blissful and peaceful ease of the day mmmm delicious.

Worth a credit? If you're looking for a well-written and narrated, light, Contemporary, sexy listen then hit the 'Add To Cart' button now. As this is book 1 of a trilogy about 3 handsome sexy men, all friends, who grew up in sleepy small town Cunningham Falls, then I'll be eagerly looking out for the next in the series and YES creditworthy.
