ONE BLIZZARD, ONE BUNKHOUSE, AND A WHOLE LOTTA TROUBLE . . .
Josie Dawson is new in town, but it doesn’t take a local to know that Deke Sullivan is trouble—in a smokin’ hot package. He’s sweet, sexy, and has charmed just about every woman in Dry Creek, Texas. Well, Josie won’t be next. She’ll keep her distance, even if he is great with babies and makes a mean cup of homemade hot chocolate.
Deke Sullivan really is a one-woman type of guy. He just had to do a lot of looking to find that one woman. Now he thinks he’s found her and he won’t let a strong, sassy gal like Josie slip away. Just when he’s wondering how to convince her he only has eyes for her, they get stranded in a tiny cabin during a major blizzard. If Deke can melt her heart before they dig out of the snow, he’ll be the luckiest cowboy in Texas . . .
3.5 southern hospitality stars!
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the slow burn of the this book. It started out a little fast then slowed down rapidly. If anyone knows anything about me they know I love a good strong female character. Josie is that character, she doesn’t need a man, but does see the value in sharing chores even if it’s with a man. She has decided to start her own ranch and has flown to Montana to look at some bulls. However mother nature has some other plans in mind and she ends up being stranded in a cabin with Deke. Deke is definitly the play boy of their home town. He has used his southern charm on just about every girl around town. However when Josie comes home he starts to get a different kind of feeling for her, maybe a settling down feeling.
I really enjoyed this HEA, it had a nice slow burn romance and a super sweet ending. Why the lower rating you ask? I grew up in a farming community, heck I own horses. So when it comes to ranching romance books I am so particular I can’t help it. There were some thing that they did that made me scratch my head. Again, different strokes for different folks but I just couldn’t get past it. I really liked the story for what it was, and I loved that both the characters were so like-able. They had such a nice southern charm going for them, that I could almost hear the drawl coming out of the book.
Thank you to Forever Romance and Carolyn Brown for my copy in lieu of my honest review.
Time for a little excerpt..
Josie could hardly take her eyes off Deke’s strong arms as he carried a pile of wood the short distance from the box to the fireplace. To have those arms around her, to cuddle up next to him on one of those bunk beds—she shook her head to get the picture out of it and reached for the tin box of matches on the mantel.
“How many do you need?” she asked.
“Just one,” he answered.
“Confident, aren’t you?”
“Not confidence, just practice, ma’am.” He got the fire going with the first one.
“Impressive,” she said.
“We’ll get it warmed up in here soon enough.”
Josie sat down on the sofa facing the fireplace and took stock of the little cabin. A set of bunk beds covered the wall to her right. A doorway into a bathroom was to her left along with crudely made bookshelves with about a hundred well-worn paperback books. A deck of cards was in the middle of a card table with a couple of folding metal chairs on either side. A second table was fitted into the small corner from the end of the bunk beds to the wall and another oil lamp had been placed in the middle of it.
“We’ll survive,” Deke said.
“Who are you trying to convince? Me or you?” Josie asked.
“Both of us. It’s better than freezing to death in our vehicles. Lord, I wish I would have turned around and gone right back home when the first snowflake hit,” he answered.
“Me too.” She threw one arm over her head and groaned.
“Top or bottom?” Deke asked.
“Well, now that depends on lots of things,” she said before she thought.
Deke whipped around, his eyes big as silver dollars. “What did you say?”
She blushed and quickly covered her blooper. “I don’t care. I could sleep right here. Maybe I’ll wake up to find this is all a dream.”
“Okay then, I’ll take the bottom bunk. Rascal gets restless if he’s not sleeping right beside the bed on his blanket or else on the foot of it. And darlin’, if you wake up and find this is a dream, don’t leave me behind.”
“No way, cowboy. You are stuck with me for the duration of this damned storm.”
“And you, darlin’, are stuck with me.”
