Pages: 300

Workin up a hot, sticky sweat is pure pleasure with a hard-ridin cowboy or two. Struggling stock contractor Gemma Jansen swallows her pride and tracks down circuit rider Cash Big Crow to offer him a job managing her ranch. Cash agrees on one condition: theirs won’t be strictly a working relationship. She’s the boss during the day, but once she’s corralled in the bedroom, Cash calls the shots. Despite concerns about their age difference, Gemma consents. Cash suspects the sexy widow hides an untapped wild streak. He intends to loosen her tightly held reins of control even if he has to break out his horsewhip to do it. But Cash is in for a surprise. Gemma proves a rough and ready participant in any leather-n-lace game Cash dreams up.

Between riding herd on his wayward daughter, Macie, and rowdy cowboy Carter McKay doggin Macie’s every boot step, Cash struggles to hide his true feelings for Gemma except this time, Gemma’s grabbed the bull by the horns and she’s playing for keeps. Summer’s going to be a hot one at the Bar 9.(from Goodreads)

In the last book you could see the sexual tension between Cash and Gemma and I am really glad that they have gotten a book. I thought they were a great couple and the swx between them, in true Lorelei James style was panty wettingly hot! The only thing I didn’t like was the threesome they had it just seemd so random, and afterwards I felt kind of sorry for Trevor.

There was also some attempts for Cash and Macie to build some kind of father-daughter relationship but that part of the story seemed a bit half hearted and just an excuse to keep Macie there so she could hook up with Carter.

As for Carter and Macie, I have to say these were the parts that I didn’t really like. Simply, Carter annoyed the crap out of me. And the painiting thing? Don’t get me started, I think every female who read that wanted to give Carter a good kick in his delectable hiney!

But, over all it wasn’t bad, I think I did prefer the first one, and I have heard some amazing things about the next one, so onwards I shall read!
