Wow, another Vicki Lewis Thompson book. I'm apparently on a cowboy kick. Which is a totally awesome thing. I haven't given cowboys the love that they deserve. The Stetson's, the boots, the tight butt showcasing jeans, the easy access snap button western shirts. *sigh* Ms. Thompson, you've once again made me put the book down and run to take a cold shower. This book, like the last one, is HOT, HOT, HOT! Like melt your panties hot (if panties could melt, edibles don't count).

Top 5 Reasons To Read This Book:

  1. Alex Keller. Can I have multiple book boyfriends? If so, he's the latest in my harem. This guy has legitimate trust issues. He's not willing to give his heart out to anyone since getting cheated on by his ex-wife Crystal. After a tumble in the hayloft with Tyler O'Connelli 10 months ago, she's all he can think of. A second chance with Tyler has him a bit confused and a lot in lust with her. He's one tough and broken cowboy who needs the right woman to capture his heart and give him the second chance he deserves.
  2. Tyler O'Connelli. Her sister has found love and is about to have a baby. She decides to visit for a few days not knowing Alex is actually living at the Last Chance Ranch. Surprise! The first glimpse of Alex Keller's butt brings back memories of hayloft sex. She's about to get a promotion that she's been working for for a while. She keeps telling herself that she's here to visit her sister and then she's off to see the world again. She's tough, independent and wanderlust is in her blood thanks to her hippie parents. A few days with Alex confuses her and brings out feelings of love, lust and thoughts of settling down. 
  3. Make you tingle down there sex. In the bed, in the truck, in the barn, on a rock. They have sex here and there, they have sex everywhere (almost). I'm surprised my Kindle didn't burst into flames while I was reading.
  4. Second chances. Alex and Tyler met 10 months ago at her sister's wedding. They had super hot sex in the hayloft and left it at that. Morgan, Tyler's sister, is about to give birth. Taking time off from her cruise activities job on an ocean liner, she goes to Wyoming to visit her sister. Lo and behold! Alex Keller has joined the Last Chance Ranch family. Hot sex plus hot DJ turned cowboy definitely makes her think twice about what settling down would feel like.
  5. The men of the Last Chance Ranch. What is there to say about these men? They're rough, tough and totally all about family and community. They're young, old, funny, serious, and they love their women.
Favorite Quote: "He wanted to chew on the furniture. How was he supposed to function today when he desperately wanted a woman who was now off limits? He needed her help, no question, but he hadn't counted on her wearing a fantasy costume that was burned into his retinas." (***quote subject to change in finished copy***)

Overall: Oh Ms. Thompson, another great, sexy, steamy, unputdownable (except to cool myself off) read. I may be working my way backwards in this series but it's still worth the read. If your summer isn't hot or steamy enough, pick up this book. Get ready to take a cold shower or have your panties melted off. Note of caution: if you read this at the beach, you may have to jump in the ocean to cool off. It was the perfect balance of raw passion and emotionally charged second chances. Ms. Thompson, you've got another winner on your hands.
