When a rebellious rancher meets the pastor’s daughter, it’s a match made in…Copper Ridge!
Sheltered from her own desires for so long, Hayley Thompson wants to experience life. A new job at Gray Bear Construction is a start. The work she can handle. It’s her boss—reclusive, sexy Jonathan Bear—who’s scrambling her mind and her hormones…
No matter how successful he becomes, Jonathan’s reputation will always precede him. And his type of woman is usually nothing like prim, innocent Hayley. Yet he can’t resist unleashing the fire beneath her pent-up facade—even if seduction means losing his heart…
Jonathan, Rebecca’s gruff and grumpy older brother from Last Chance Rebel wasn’t the most sympathetic character in that book, so I was really looking forward to seeing what Ms. Yates would do with him in his own story. Happily, I wasn’t disappointed! At first glance, Haley appears to be the wrong heroine for him, but she soon proves all of her doubters wrong as she actually turns out to be exactly what Jonathan needs. I loved watching the two of them come together and figure out how to heal the broken parts within themselves.
Since this book is in the Desire line, the steam level is pretty high; however, it’s also fairly short and the ending feels a tad bit rushed. Still, this was an enjoyable read and I was pretty much good for nothing until I’d finished it, so the length ended up being a bit of a plus 😉
Like other books in the series, Seduce Me, Cowboy works just fine as a standalone–though if you have read Rebecca’s book, Jonathan and Rebecca’s interaction toward the end of the book will be that much more satisfying.
Rating: 4 stars / B+
