The Ultimate Ultimatum

Okay, I think my girlfriends are trying to tell me something. Or maybe I need new girlfriends...lol. This is yet another one of their gift ideas. I never would have picked this book out myself, but I have to admit, it wasn't all that bad.~~~~~~~The novel had a 1/2 decent and plausible plot. The main characters, Lynn and Jake were quite memorable. Secondary characters were just that secondary, added a little intrigue to the tale, but they weren't the primary attraction.~~~~~

I'm giving this story a two star rating "It Was Okay". However I'm wavering between it was okay to I didn't like it. The story was borderline ridiculous. And the spanking was not cute nor was it romantic. More like abusive. I couldn’t support the thought of the male character talking down to the female and basically forcing her to have a physical relationship. Not romantic or cute.

Description: Lynn James is willing to do anything to save her beloved stepfather’s ranch, but does “anything” include agreeing to rancher, Jake Ragnall’s erotic ultimatum?

The Good: This is a very sexy story with great stakes. Added to that, Ms. Foxx sets up a fantastic back story for the H/H’s parents, with a terrific nod to the older generation of loving couples who paved the way. I also loved that Lynn was full-figured and that this significantly added to her attraction for Jake.


The Bad: There

Hot, steamy and quick read

I couldn't put this book down and read it in one sitting. Jake and Lynn burned up the pages. Mercy this was a nice steamy read.

I rarely ever give a book a rating of one star, but this time...

I'm sorry, but I could not wait to get this book out of my hands and back on the shelf. The writing style was cool, and that's what I look at first from an author, but the two main characters just got on my nerves. BIG TIME. Not to mention, just like some others, I feel that the story line didn't match the length of the book; it was a quick read--thank God--but the plot called for a longer story. That would have been good for me bec

This is my first story by this author and it was a good one. This was suggested to me by other readers in the forums I am apart of as a great story.

This is Lynn and James' story. I read it in one sitting it was lightly based on a dom/sub theme but nothing too heavy! I read the book in one sitting and I loved that even though James made the ultimatum he was not aggressive or cruel with it. He had deep feelings for Lynn and he just wanted a chance of winning her.

Great read really enjoyed the story

My first read of a Nia K. Foxx book. This story is about bad blood between 2 Texas rancher families that has been going on for numerous years. One of the families, needs money desperately and the black adopted daughter approaches the rival family for a loan of money. He agrees, providing she lives with him and obeys every command for a couple of weeks. She has no choice and agrees. Read it for yourself to see what happens....

In The Rancher's Ultimatum, author Nia K. Foxx, did her thing. The main characters Jake and Lynn dom/submissive relationship spoke volumes. It was like Jake envoked Lynn's need to be dominated by him. Not to mention that these two already had feeling for each other. I have to give it to Nia Foxx, she did the damn thing with this story almost makes me want to go to Texas to see if I could find a rancher like Jake.

Wow what a boring book! I ended up skimming to read what happened at the end. What contemporary book has people calling their dad "Paw" and the hero calling the heroine "Sweetling" arrgghh

I guess I'm one of the one's who hated this book. It moved way too fast and I didn't get to know the main characters at all.

I didn't care for it

I enjoy D/s scenarios but I can't say that I liked this one. Lynn seemed weak to me. I pretty much lost interest after her ordered her into the car like a child and she didn't stand up for herself. Dominance does not involve humiliation. There's other kink for that. And there is more to being a submissive than being bossed around and told what to do.

The plot and main characters are good but there just isn't enough to the story. This was supposed to be a story with a light BDSM but that came across as clunky.

Could of been longer, more oomph needed.

This was my first time reading a book by the author and most likely my last. While the book in its entirety was an okay read, it could've been a lot better. I felt like the characters weren't developed, the plot was simplistic and the sex scenes were mediocre at best. I almost want to say: 'I've had better,' yet that'd be just as unoriginal and lackluster as the book was.

This is a book I add into the category of 'flyby' because frequent lovers of romance should fly by it and choose something els

3.5 stars, closer to 3 than a 4. I borrowed this book via my Amazon Prime monthly freebie.

I liked this book OK, it just was a little short for the nature of the story. There were too many personality proclivities that required more time, for one to successfully suspend disbelief and thoroughly enjoy the characters. Without further back-story, it just didn't ring true enough for the 4-stars.

Still, it was an enjoyable read, and I was entertained. Decent erotic romance.

Jooniebug
Good romance but too short. I which Nia writes more longer novels like Sienna Mynx and Pepper Pace but Nia's stories are too short but with so much potential.

What can I say, I love to read and write. I have 3 beautiful children who keep me active and happy, if not for them I'd probably be a recluse surrounded by zillions of books, a few tablets and several laptops. I love getting all feedback since my goal is to improve on my craft. I haven't written my best work yet. Hope to hear from you.

Happy Reading!
