Party organizer Tyler Connelli is on the fast track to her dream career. She’s so close she can almost taste it. But when she returns to her family and sees her one-night stand, Alex Keller, all done up in his cowboy gear, her self-control is stretched to the breaking point....Cowboy Up by Vicki Lewis Thompson
They’re worlds apart. She’s a busy career girl, and Alex is a cowboy. But while getting together might not bode well for anything long-term, it more than makes up for it in sheer hot chemistry! Problem is, this is one wrangler she might want to get tied down—and tied up—to...indefinitely!

“Never fall in love with a cowboy.” These words were drilled into Emily Sterling’s head since her parents divorced over twenty years ago. But now Emily has returned to her father’s ranch... only to find herself face-to-face with jaw-droppingly hot rancher Clay Whitaker.Wendy Says: Uh, yes please?
Clay is the resident stud expert at the Last Chance Ranch and isn’t so keen on “spoiled” city slickers...until Emily arrives. Now he’s showing Emily just what a ranch—and a cowboy—has to offer. And it’s an offer Emily can’t refuse. After all, she’s not falling for a cowboy—she’s just getting hot and naked with one. Yeah, right....
Oh, you're looking for something more inspired than that?
Uh, pretty please with sugar on top?
Oh, and if you seem to recall me saying somewhere online that I was bored with man-titty covers? Yeah, that wasn't me. It was a pod person. Because yes, while I am bored with some man-titty covers, cowboys are automatically exempt. Save your breath - they just are. Because they're cowboys. Shirtless cowboys wearing tight jeans and cowboy hats and......where was I going with this again?
Oh! Yeah, the stories. Yeah, that's the ticket. The actual stories. Ahem.
This is a continuation of Thompson's Sons of Chance series that came out last summer. I read that trilogy back-to-back-to-back, and reviewed them all over at TGTBTU. The whole experience pretty much wrapped up as "Just OK" for me - but now here I am, a year later, starring at the glorious cowboy-man-titty that those evil masterminds at Harlequin have doctored up....
Damn them! Damn their black merciless souls!
Wait - do you hear that? It's pretty faint, but it sounds like crazed maniacal laughter coming out of Toronto......
