Party organizer Tyler O'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….
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!
What do you do when you come face to face with that one person that “fills up your senses”? Grab you chance at love and never let go!!
Welcome back to Jackson Hole, Wyoming and the beautiful Last Chance ranch. Amazing storyteller Vicki Lewis Thompson has answered the pleas of her fans by writing Alex and Tyler’s story. When we last met Alex and Tyler they were literally hooking up after an incredible double wedding in Claimed!.
What was supposed to be a one night stand in the hayloft has left an indelible impression on both Alex and Tyler. The pending blessed event of Morgan and Gabe’s baby has brought Tyler back to the ranch and back into Alex’s thoughts. Little does he realize, she never left his heart.
Will Alex be able to have Tyler back in his arms for a few days and then watch her walk away again to fulfill a lifelong career opportunity or will the infamous Chance luck make a way for them both to have it all and each other?
In the timeless Harlequin fashion, Ms. Thompson weaves a sweetly layered plot that will grab you from page one. Alex and Tyler are wonderful characters and it felt deliciously voyeuristic to watch them try to fight the sexual chemistry that practically crackles between them like butter in a hot skillet. When they do give in, whoa! Ms. Thompson’s writing is vivid and brings the reader right into the scene.
My one complaint is when they find their HEA (and of course they do, this is a Harlequin afterall) the story just ends. ARGH!! Not to worry, dear reader, I have checked out Ms. Thompson’s website and there are at least two more stories coming out in July and then August for the Sons of Chance. Since we were allowed to catch up with the other Chance men and their wives in Should’ve Been A Cowboy I have no doubt we’ll be hearing from Alex and Tyler again as well. There are a couple of really sweet surprises within the pages of their story but you’ll have to read the book to find out what those surprises are.
If a heartwarming love story filled with lots of sexual heat and tension is what you’re in the mood for I’ve got a great recommend that comes with its own soundtrack. Pick up a copy of Should’ve Been A Cowboy and get swept up into the beautiful landscape of the Wyoming countryside and the stories of the men and women who call the Last Chance ranch home.
