Need Me, Cowboy cover

Title: NEED ME, COWBOY
Author: Maisey Yates
Genre: Romance
Harlequin Imprint: Desire

He’s not a man to be played with. Not without consequences.

For five years, Levi Tucker had no control over his life, locked up for a crime he didn’t commit. Never again would any woman—any desire—overtake this cowboy’s common sense. Now Faith Grayson, the sexy, brilliant architect he’s hired to design his grand new house, is sorely testing his resolve. Faith is too young. Too innocent. Maybe just too tempting.

Review:

Faith and Levi’s story is simply wonderful–they are both really strong characters who have so much more inside them than first appears. Faith especially kept surprising me (not to mention Levi and even her own family) with her inner strength and determination–she really is so much more than her young age and relationship inexperience would make her seem. And Levi…? Though his wrongful conviction and home life growing up were horrible, the prison that he’d put himself in was so much worse. He was breaking my heart right along with Faith’s–and his own.

Of course we get an HEA, but the author does her best to make him–and us!–work for it. This book was next to impossible to put down once I’d started 🙂

I’ve enjoyed all of Ms. Yates’s books that I’ve read set in Copper Ridge so far, but Faith and Levi’s story simply blew me away. It’s going to be hard to top, but I sincerely hope she tries 😉

I can’t wait for more from this series and author!

Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A

About the author:

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.

In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.
