Dylan Garahan might be an old hand at lassoing fillies, but one night at the Lucky Star club, and he ends up wrapping his rope around someone that even his formidable strength can't tame. She's wily and beautiful... and she's his new boss. Dylan's had his heart broken before, but even an honest cowpoke has to wrestle with temptation...


Ronnie DelVecchio might be fresh off the bus from New Jersey, but she's a hard-edged businesswoman and has had her fill of men she can't trust—although she might consider getting off her high horse for that big, handsome rancher with a Texas drawl.

Cowboys, a little naked time, and lot of construction fun.

This story reeled me in quickly. The writing is tight and the story line is exciting. The characters don't just fall madly in love moments after of meeting. There's a chase. There's a peacock dance of sorts that has them both trying to decide if it's worth trying to have a something between them. And being able to see the characters from the first book, Tyler, I felt like I was reading about old friends.

There's some suspense in this heated story. Ronnie's got someone mad at her and her store gets destroyed. I felt bad. I mean, I really felt the pain she endured seeing her work slashed and crushed. I could see him being the one to help her, and I liked Dylan's role. He's the construction muscle. CH Admirand writes him so well, I could really visualize him there working and flexing to right the wrongs. Yum. I loved the way Ronnie puts him off. Yes, she gives in here and there, but overall she gives him a run for his money. I don't want to get into the details and ruin the story, but I enjoyed the heat and the way things played out. Dylan and Ronnie are a great pair.

If you want a story that's got heat, heart and a little mystery to keep you guessing, then you need to read Dylan. I recommend it.

Thanks for a wonderful review! Sorry for the delay I was on double-deadline with copyedits for JESSE and the first book in my new Small Town USA series for Sourcebooks.

I'm so glad you enjoyed reading Dylan and Ronnie's story!
