Synopsis:

I have my hands full taking care of my little sister and covering for my uncle as ranch foreman. The last thing I need is a Texas princess like Callie Llewellyn getting up in my business and messing with my head.

All I can think of is getting up close and personal with those curves of hers. And being on the edge of discovery makes our quick-and-dirty encounters twice as hot. And that’s all they are—quick and dirty—there’s nothing deeper going on here.

There’s only one rule to keeping my job and a roof over my sister’s head: stay away from the boss’s granddaughter. But I’m not always great at following the rules.

My Review:

This is a romance between nineteen year old poor little rich girl, Callie Llewellyn, and the handsome, acting foreman on her grandparents’ ranch. She’s flunked a college course but doesn’t want to tell her grandparents who have brought her up since her parents died because she thinks they’ll be disappointed in her. She’s planning on studying over the summer to retake it and get her grades back up again without telling them.

He’s covering the role of his Uncle who had been seriously injured in an accident. He’s smart, hardworking and actually left college to take care of his sick mother and is now bringing up his fifteen year old sister. He seems like a real sweetheart, even if he’s wary of committing to any relationship because he’s determined to care for his sister and working to get a decent future for them both. The last thing he needs is the daughter of his boss endangering his job or that of his uncle! The only problem is their attraction is hot and mutual so resistance is well nigh impossible.

This is definitely not a story where what occurs behind closed doors stays there. In fact a significant proportion of the whole novel seems to involve descriptions of the sexual activities between the two main characters (sorry, personally would have preferred a lot less information!). However, there is also a plot there when you can untangle the sheets or clothing and there are some twists and turns in it so it isn’t totally predictable other than you know they’ll end up in sexual romps again soon. It is a quick, light and enjoyable read, complete with its own HEA ending.

I was gifted a copy of this book by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
