I believe that this is the first m/m romance this author has written. At the very least, she is new to me and the blurb and cover were both quite tempting. I haven't read a cowboy book in a while, and thought I didn't expect it from the blurb, I liked the dynamic between the two characters, the whole two alphas going head to head in a battle of wills can be intriguing. That's just how I saw it, as both men were quite stubborn and had a prior competition that

This book left me with some very mixed feelings: the writing is smooth and engaging, and I really like the style. When the prose is almost good enough to lull me into ignoring or accepting inconsistencies and plot holes, that’s very good writing indeed. Emma Lai’s style makes me want to read more of her work, with a more logical plot attached.

Clayton uses his summer for playing gay cowboy; wrangling on a dude ranch and spending hot bunkhouse nights with a couple of pals. They both managed to fin
This is more of a 3.6-3.9 rating. I really enjoyed this one. It was short, but I was able to really like both of the characters and ended up wanting more when I was finished reading it. I loved how vulnerable Clay was and how he struggled with his feelings. I finished this in one sitting, which is unusual for me these days, and just plain loved it. I can't wait to read more by this author.

The best part of this story is the ending (normally I’d have gone with the sex, which was pretty good!). This ending, though, wrapped up everything very nicely in a pretty little bow.

James and Clay have been opponents in the courtroom many times. Can they find a way to be together? Can they really find a way to have it all? Read the story and find out.

Not mind blowing. I wish they had kept the Western setting for a little longer bc it was only in the beginning for a Few pages. I wouldn't even classify it as a cowboy book. The sex scenes were well written and well thought out but other than that it was pretty mediocre

I really enjoyed this book. The MC's played off each other well.. Nothing too angsty and a nice HEA ending.

Finally, her husband dared her to use her experience and knowledge and devote herself to writing. She accepted his challenge and has been writing ever since.

Writing keeps Emma sane. Her characters demand their
