A man Kit turning his life around, he once owned a brothel. And she has a secret life that keeps women safe. But is she also the woman, the murdered he was hired to find.

Coincidental Cowgirl

Coincidental Cowgirl

by Jillian Neal

TITLE: Coincidental Cowgirl

SERIES: A Camden Ranch Introduction

# OF STARS 4

Genre: COWBOY ROMANCE

Pages: 178

Overview:

Born and raised on the sunny shores of Gypsy Beach, Hope Camden is struggling to make sense of life on her husband’s family cattle ranch, which is often buried in three feet of snow. She willingly traded in her flip-flops for cowgirl boots, but life on the ranch isn’t quite how she imagined it. Truthfully, she doesn’t understand how anyone survives in a town where the cows vastly outnumber the people, the mailman reads the mail before delivering it, the doctor’s office is in an old mechanic’s shop, and the poodle-grooming beauty shop owner moonlights for the mortuary. Her husband is kind, sweet, and oh so sexy, but the Nebraskan winters may be more than she can withstand.

Born and bred to be a cowboy, Brock Camden is desperate to make Hope love Pleasant Glen as much as he does. There’s nothing better than having his wife in his arms or in his bed. He just has to show her that life on his family’s cattle ranch can be just as magical as their life on Gypsy Beach, if she’ll give it a chance. A shocking twist of fate has both of them clinging tightly to one another, and Brock has to prove that he’ll stand by her side through thick or thin. Will the fiery passion they have between the sheets be enough to keep them warm through the long, cold winter nights?

Reviewed by Tammy:

The book was good. There were areas that will make you laugh out loud. You can feel like you are going threw the things that Hope is. You are able to relate to her in this story very well. I like how the family pulls together to show them what they were doing wrong. The lesson in the story is that you cant expect your spouse to know what is going on without good communication. That you need to take the bad with the good and to give new things a chance.

Genre: ROMANCE

Pages: 277

Overview:

As the owner of Licked, an eclectic ice creamery and bar, Ryleigh Phillips doesn’t have time for that love stuff. Serving up Nibble My Nuts sundaes and Drunken Sailor boozy shakes are as close to an orgasmic affair as she’s had in months thanks to her expanding empire—until the night of her ten-year high school reunion.

When Ryleigh’s crush, gorgeous ex-football god Cameron Mathis, comes streaking into her life (literally—streaking), she begins to wonder if she really can have it all.

Wouldn’t it just figure that the moment you think life is perfect is when it falls spectacularly apart?

Enter Hunter Morgan, the contractor in charge of Licked’s renovations. Devastatingly handsome, and a smartass to boot, he’s got his eyes on Ryleigh from the moment he finds her passed out on his couch (yeah, that’s a long story). There’s just one tiny complication—he happens to be Cameron’s best friend.

When the lines between relationships and friendships blur, and it’s impossible to choose between two delicious flavors, what’s a girl to do? Taste a sample of each? Or go out and get LICKED?

Reviewed by Tammy:

Oh wow I loved this book. The names she comes up with for her ice cream is hilarious. She is expanding her business to include alcoholic shakes in its own bar. She meets up with her high school crush. Will she date him? Will she date his best friend? Who will she go out with? What will happen with her business and her ideas? What is in-store next?
