~Synopsis~

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Harper Sloan returns with a passionate and breathless romance about the sparks that ignite when a cautious cowboy and a once-scorned woman open up to each other in the third installment of the Coming Home series.
As the eldest Davis, Clayton has always tried to lead by example. He takes his job as head of the family businesses seriously, making sure the farm and auto shop are running smoothly—along with keeping an eye on his brother and sister. For him, there’s a time and place to let go of the control he holds with an iron grip. And with the way he grew up, coupled with disastrous end to his last relationship, he’s just fine with his quiet, solitary life.
Most of the time.
What he hadn’t counted on was cute, quirky, shy bookstore owner, Caroline Michaels. She’s the proverbial woman next door—well, the next town over, that is. Caroline hasn’t lived an easy life, but after escaping an abusive ex, she’s finally living it for herself. The last thing she ever expected was a one-night stand with Clay Davis, a night she can’t stop thinking about.
So when she falls on hard times and Clay comes out of nowhere to her rescue, she realizes just how impossible it’ll be to stay away from him. Now all she has to do is convince him to live a little…
Will Clay be able to give up the reins and finally settle down? And, more importantly, will Caroline muster enough courage to lasso him up?

I am a huge fan of the “Hope Town” series as well as the “Corps Security” series. Actually, I have loved every single book this author writes!! So you will understand my level of giddiness when I got my hands on this gem. 😀

Just like with the previous 3 books, I absolutely fell in love with this 4th book and the characters in it!!

Shane and Nikki were both awesome characters, but they were also extremely HOT. I think this is one of the hottest books by Harper Sloan that I’ve read…which is saying something because they are all flaming!!

Shane is quite the dirty talker. 😛

Series: Coming Home #2
Publisher: Pocket Books
Page Count: 369 pages

Genre(s): Contemporary Romance
Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: 4 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

In this second of the sultry, Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily-ever-after—but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots?
Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.
The only place Tate Montgomery ever truly felt at home growing up was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his Gram and Paw’s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start—but if he’s being entirely honest, he’s not just back for the wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend-turned-young-love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past; but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty he did his best to forget for him to realize just how much he’s been missing…

I have read almost all of Harper Sloan’s books, so of course, I had to read this series as well. 😉 I absolutely loved the “Security” series and “Hopetown” even more.

This series is a bit different though… For one, we get Cowboys…woohoo!! Continue reading “~Review~Kiss My Boots (Coming Home #2) by Harper Sloan~”

Lost Rider (Coming Home #1) by Harper Sloan

****4Stars****

4-star-rating.jpg (1547×292):


I have a very deep love for cowboys, so when I was given the chance of reviewing a “cowboy” book, by one of my favorite authors…I jumped on it !!

You know what they say….and I totally agree !!

save_a_horse_ride_a_cowboy.jpg (400×400):


“Lost Rider” is the first book in this new series by Haper Sloan.

It was very different, from all the other books I have read by her (which are a lot), though one thing has not changed…. the delicious alpha hero.  😉

1406937578668 (500×320):


The beginning of this books has some flashbacks to the past when Maverick and Leighton were much younger. Leighton has always had a huge crush on her best friends older brother.

636020789802055665-1828284865_break-up-quotes.jpg (625×363):


Maverick had a really hard time growing up.

His father was an absolute asshole and the only thing that kept Maverick going were his dreams of bull riding…and Leighton. He knows he can’t stay…he is slowly dying inside. He knows she has a big crush on him and he knows that she would follow him to the end of the world if need be…So he does the only thing he can think of. He breaks her 16-year-old heart into little pieces and goes off to chase his dreams.

Fast forward 10 years and Maverick is forced to come home again.

His bull riding career has come to a screeching halt and his siblings need him because their father has died. Coming home also means…

…Coming face to face with the one girl he never wanted to leave…

1.jpg (905×601):

Leighton was crushed when Maverick broke her heart and left…

But she has since grown up and made a life for herself. Maverick still owns a piece of her heart though and she doesn’t know if that will ever change. Now Maverick has come back and he has made it very clear he wants her and he intends to never let her go.

But how will she ever trust him again...

This was a very low on angst, second chance story.

Not only a second chance on love but a second chance on family and life. I enjoyed reading it, though I would have enjoyed it more if there would have been a bit more angst. I also would have preferred a bit more dialogue. The MC’s spend a lot of time in their heads…

I liked Maverick and Leighton, though Leighton did annoy me at times. I know what Maverick did to her when she was 16, was extremely shitty, but in my opinion, him leaving was a necessity. Not everything was about her, though for some reason, she made it out to be. Thankfully she was also funny as hell, so that made up for her annoying parts.

As for Maverick…yeah he was a major asshole in the beginning. But what can I say…I like assholes and he did try very hard to redeem himself. He was also a major dirty talker, which get’s me all the time.  😉

The steam in this book was delicious…

“I was lost once. A Rider without the ability to do what he loved. I came home even though it was the last place I thought I wanted to be, and in the process not only did I find myself again, but I also found that my reason for livin’ didn’t have shit to do with ridin’. ” 

d89cb9f53012c95fae6436b01fe9cae2.jpg (536×603):


I do have to say that “Corps Security” and especially “Hope Town” are still my favorite series by this author, though. I don’t think anything will change that. Still, this was a very sweet, low on angst and high on love “second chance” story. I am definitely reading the next book !!

An arc was kindle provided to me by the author, via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Jaded Hearts (Loaded Replay #1) by Harper Sloan

****3.5 Stars****

imageedit_370_2923990547


I am a huge Harper Sloan fan and I just love her “Corps Security” series and it’s spin-off ” Home Town”.

Jaded Hearts is the first book of her new spin-off series,”Loaded Replay”.


Afbeeldingsresultaat voor fangirling

This story centers around Chance, who was first introduced in “Unexpected Fate”, book 1 in the “Home Town” series, as Cohen’s friend. I always thought he was a great character, so I was very pleased about him getting his own book.

 


Afbeeldingsresultaat voor best job everChance has been working for “Corps Security” for some time and he couldn’t be happier when his job finds him in charge of the security of Wrenlee Davenport. A girl he has seen in person only once, but who has left a huge impression on him.

 


Wrenlee, her twin brother and two of their best friends from the very famous band “Loaded Replay”. Lately, Wren has been feeling kind of jaded. She knows that their band has come a long way and she is thankful for all that they’ve accomplished, but she’s also very sad about all the negative things their fame has brought on.

Somewhere along the way, she has lost her love for the music. She also feels very alone. The only people who show her any interest are those who want something from her. She would love to have someone in her life, who would just love her for her and not her fame.


Well, she is about to have her wish come true…

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor fire in my pants + gifWhen Chance is hired as her personal security guard.Sparks ignite and panties catch fire!!There is an instant attraction between the two of them, that won’t be denied.

 



I loved both MC’s very much and the other bandmates were awesome.

Gerelateerde afbeeldingI just missed a bit of the suspense/angst I’m used to when reading a Harper Sloane book. Except for them exploring their relationship, there wasn’t a whole lot going on until the end. Which brings me to the whole reason Chance was hired in the first place. The whole security reasons, don’t get addressed until the end of the book and by then it all felt a bit unrealistic and it was also resolved a bit too fast for my liking.

I still enjoyed this book very much though and I will be on the lookout for the next, which will be Jamieson’s book.

I loved his character, he was very funny and I can’t wait to read more about him.
