Lila is taking over the ranch while her parents head out on a cruise. She’s out to prove to everyone that she’s got what it takes. When Jet and Houston come along looking to hire on as ranch hands, they’re just what the doctor ordered-both for the ranch and for Lila’s sex life.
The main thing that bothered me with this one was that Lila’s parents-Matt, Eric, and Nikki-and her aunt and uncles-Simon, Lance, and Marci-were so open with everyone about her budding relationship with Jet and Houston. It was a little squick-inducing to hear them tell her to go at it. And to hear them tell Jet and Houston that she needed to be spanked.
I also didn’t really care for the fact that Beth Elliot (an ancestor of Lila and the heroine from Barefoot Bride for Three which took place in 1870) was still in this one, coming back as a spirit. The woman’s dead and buried. Let her be. I loved her in her book, but her popping up in the Climax series of books is stretching my boundaries of believability.
This one was filled with everything that I’ve come to love and expect from a Reece Butler read-steamy, hot sex and romance that tugs at my heartstrings. I’m still enjoying the books, but I would like to see what Reece could do with a different series. As much as I like the Bride Train series and the Climax, Montana series, I’m ready for something new.
