One Night Rodeo, Blacktop Cowboys #4, By Lorelei James
Grade: B+

“You waiting until I turn around so you can make sure I’m a girl?”

Celia Lawson has known Kyle Gilchrist almost her entire life and for most of that time she’s done nothing but try to make his life miserable and vice versa. Celia’s not sure when her feelings for the smoking hot cowboy changed but she’s shocked to wake up naked and married Kyle after a long night of drinking in Las Vegas. When Kyle inherits a ranch from his father he never knew he makes a deal with Celia, for her help getting everything running Kyle will pay for her to go to vet school after six months. Celia soon finds she likes playing house with Kyle and walking away might not be what she really wants.

Kyle Gilchrist has spent all of his time trying to win money bull riding so he can buy his own ranch so when his unknown father leaves him a spread right outside his hometown he’s shocked. Also as shocking is realizing he married his friends baby sister and how much the idea doesn’t scare him. Kyle now has six months to convince Celia that he wants the marriage to be forever and he will stop at nothing to keep the sassy cowgirl by his side and in his bed forever.

Like many fans of this amazing series by Lorelei James I have been highly anticipating Kyle getting his happily ever after especially now that it’s with Celia. We first bet Kyle in Corralled and I instantly fell in love with him. Kyle is the epitome of the sexy cowboy but the way he looked out for Celia and was so sweet to her made me swoon. Like most fans this book has been a long time coming and it was everything I wanted.

After their drunk marriage in Las Vegas Celia and Kyle head back up to Wyoming to finalize Kyle’s inheritance. These two have the best chemistry and from the first page they are sizzling. I was a little nervous that Mrs. James was going to make us wait for these two to start burning up the sheets but these two can’t keep their hands off one another. Kyle and Celia are a great team and I enjoyed reading about what it takes to run a ranch and all the hard work that goes into it.

After getting to know both Kyle and Celia I was very worried that they had too much baggage to work and that would do nothing but fight and bicker. I loved how well they clicked and how much they learned to open up. Seeing these two very lonely people start to love and depend on the other made this my favorite book of the series. I was so happy with everything and I only wish that we could have had more between Kyle and his mother because I thought there was a lot more there that could have been worked out.

We get to see all of the characters from previous books and catch up with them. I wasn’t very happy with Celia’s brothers, Hank and Able, but they did redeem themselves and make things better. Once again The Mud Lilies provide lots of laughs and I’m serious when I say those ladies need their own books. I am not sure who’s book we’re getting next but I love this series and can’t wait to see what happens next.
