“ARC given for an honest review”

Kate Garrett keeps life simple—working hard, riding her beloved horses, playing cards with her brothers. Lately, though, she feels a bit restless, especially when family friend Jack Monaghan is around. Sexy and shameless, Jack is the kind of trouble you don’t tangle with unless you want your heart broken. Still, Kate could always use his help in learning how to lasso someone a little less high-risk…
Jack can’t pinpoint the moment the Garrett brothers’ little sister suddenly stopped seeming so…little. Now here he is, giving flirting tips to the one woman who needs zero help turning him on. Love’s a game he’s never wanted to play. But he’ll have to hurry up and learn how before the best thing that ever entered his life rides right back out again…

First Sentences

Kate Garrett had never much belonged to anyone. And that was how she liked it.

My Thoughts

Kate Garrett is young and is so focused on her horse riding training. But lately, she’s been feeling a little restless and it’s usually around her brother’s oldest friend Jack Monaghan. And Jack can’t seem to pinpoint when he’s started seeing his best friends baby sister as a beautiful woman.

I love this sort of story and I’ve been going through a cowboy phase so this book would have been straight up my alley. But I felt that this book itself was a little too long for me. There were parts of the book that I would have liked to go a little quickly but it dragged on and on. I felt the length of it took away a lot of the chemistry of the plot. And I felt that we were too much in both the characters heads and the way that it was written; especially for Kate’s part I couldn’t give a damn. Her inner voice had gotten a little to bitchy and annoying for me to really sympathized with her issues. I loved Jack too much for Kate to treat him like that. Although, the characters has great chemistry together and I would have loved to see her brother’s stories. They seem to be amazing.
