What a fun, clean read! Cassie has to suddenly leave her life behind and enter the Witness Protection Program. Shane is helping to keep her safe and, living on a ranch with other single men around, decides the best way to protect her is to pretend they're married. Cassie's parents and boyfriend live out of the country so she's not used to having family around and the more she's around Shane's family, the more she realizes what she's missing out on. But of course there are complications, misunder ...more

Kimberly Krey's motto seems to be: Romance that's clean without losing the steam. And a very fine motto that is, Kimberly. It's a lovely, fine motto that I hope you keep it forever. And ever. I vote yes.

If you'd like to escape for awhile into the world of a sexy, volatile, boot wearing cowboy from Montana, this is your book. :) Shane is definitely swoon worthy. Hard working, protective... wow, he almost sounds too good to be true, yeah?

This book was, for me, an escape. It was exactly wh

I thought this was okay, overall it was enjoyable, just not what I was expecting. I liked Cassie and Shane well enough, I wish their relationship were a little deeper and didn’t move so fast. I am just not a fan of insta-love, or insta-lust, I have a hard time believing the longevitity of a relationship that is built so much on physical attraction and little else. While they did have good chemistry and some great moments together, I would have again liked it more if everything wasn’t so fast. Th ...more
I received Cassie’s Cowboy Crave in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by Prism Book Tours. Cassie’s life growing up wasn't typical her parents didn't raise her she was raised by grandmother until she passed away. Her parents didn't even show up to the funeral so it’s no surprise she jumps into a long distance relationship with a guy in India and after three year still doesn't know much about him. When her fellow jurors are dying off she’s forced into witness protection and s ...more

I"m so excited to share this contemporary western romance series! I totally fell for Shane and Cassie while writing this story, and can't wait to get the others out there as well.

It’s been a couple weeks now since I’ve finished this book and I STILL have it on my brain (not to mention the butterflies in my tummy when I think of the sweet man Shane is)
I’ve read quite a few cowboy romances over the years and I have to say, Shane Emerson is now easily my favorite among the other ranch lad’s I’ve read about.
Often times, I’ll have a friend who is moving to some country side or another somewhere in the US and we will always cracks jokes like, “it’ll be even better once yo

Cassie’s Cowboy Crave by Kimberly Krey is a delightfully spine-tingling and absolutely heavenly journey of finding your place in this world and discovering a love that you never dared to dream of. This story is such an exquisite ray of sunshine! While romance hasn’t been something that I ever read much of in the past, I have been captivated and endeared to this genre by a few precious treasures including and especially Cassie’s Cowboy Crave. I can’t say enough good things about this book! My hea ...more

Cassie Lovell has just survived six-months as a juror in a high profile case helping put away one of the Lawson brothers. When jurors start turning up murdered, Cassie is taken into a witness protection program in the care of Shane Emerson, a rancher. Did I mention that Shane is one gorgeous hunk of a man who has been very unlucky in love? Cassie has spent her whole life abandoned by her parents who chose to aid in the development of third world countries instead of raising the child they really ...more

First off, I was fortunate to win a copy of this book through the Goodreads contest. I really enjoyed this sweet story. It was very well written...storyline wise, gramatics, editing and all that jazz. I liked the H/h, both were wonderful characters. Both sweet, flirty, kind, and both stubborn to outright admit their feelings for each other. I guess books would be extremely short if both parties would get over themselves and admit their love!! LOL. I liked so many things about this book, but I wi ...more

I loved this book! If you are looking for a book that will help you escape from the daily grind, this is the perfect book. I love romances and clean romances are even better. This is a great summer read!!

Growing up I enjoyed reading Harlequin romances and though I still enjoy reading them, I have gotten away from them because of the sex. Finding a romance that is clean one that I would let my daughters read is great. Although it is a clean romance, the kissing is still pretty steamy. I would def

As a writer--and avid reader--of Christian fiction, the title of this book along with the cover made me hesitate. (That's not meant to sound snobbish. I'm just leery of reading romance in the secular market.) I'm glad I took a chance on it though. Very well written. Once I started, I couldn't put it down. Strong, lovable characters with morals. An overall "clean" romance--refreshing to find in the secular market.

This was a cute book. To be honest I didn't know how this book could be any different than the first two books in this series, but it was! I once again found myself roped in and couldn't seem to put it down. I really liked Cassie, she was very genuine and sweet, and Shane was everything a woman would want. It had just enough suspense to keep you wondering what would happen next. So I think anyone looking for a romance that is clean yet steamy would enjoy this book:) Happy Reading!!

I'd give this one a 3.5, but since Goodreads doesn't allow half-stars, I'll bump it up to a 4.

An endangered heroine hiding from gangsters who threaten her life and a hunky cowboy looking for love, Cassie's Cowboy Crave has all the makings of a classic romance.

Shane is a lonely Montana cowboy, still reeling from a breakup. Cassie is a positive-thinking young woman thrust into danger after serving on a jury. When the two are forced together for her protection, the sparks fly.

As a whole, I enjoyed

This book made “cowboy” and Montana look sooooo GOOD!!!! I’ve never seen cowboy boots as sexy, but I’ll never look at them the same ever again. Lol.

Montana… that’s another subject. I’m already to move there as it is, so this story nearly had me packing my bags.

It wasn’t so much the wide open skies, the starry nights… it is the pace of live. I enjoyed the family get-togethers, the bustle of the ranch hands waiting for dinner. The wives visiting… the kids riding big wheels inside the house. :-D Ye

Cassie Lovell is an editor that is great at her job, has a few great friends that she hangs out with and has an apartment with a killer view of Seattle. All of that is about to change though and her life will never be the same. Cassie is rushed into the witness protection program when two jurors are found dead not long after the high profile case that she was on was finished up. Shane Emerson is really ticked off when he finds that his meddling brothers and their wives volunteered him to protect ...more

Cassie was in a dangerous situation and very suddenly was put into the Witness Protection Program, without any advance warning - not even being able to pack. She is moved from a large city to a ranch in Montana. Cassie is a likable character since she always tries to do what other people want and doesn't think about herself. Cassie is moved to the Emerson Ranch where Shane, a handsome cowboy, is to look after her. Shane feels the best way to keep Cassie safe and not have the ranch hands hitting ...more

As westerns go, Cassie's Cowboy Crave by Kimberley Krey, is one of the better ones. The plot is laid out in the beginning with very descriptive characterizations. They are believable and want you to cheer them on. It makes you interested in their lives. Shane, on losing a bet, has to drive the 5 hour ride to the airport to pick up Cassie, the juror sent into witness protection. They decide to tell everyone they were married. The family is in on it but not the ranch hands. Shane and Cassie are at ...more

This was a sweet and slow romance. The plot was good. Cassie had just finished a trial where she was a juror. After the trail, jurors are being murdered. Cassie didn't even have time to pack, before she was being moved to a safe house. She found herself on a ranch in Montana, and pretending to be a wife to Shane, a sexy cowboy. Shane didn't want to take advantage of the situation. He wanted to get to know Cassie, and really date her before the two became lovers. I loved the slow build up of the ...more

This was an enjoyable read. It is a sweet romance with kissing but no sex. I loved the characters in this book. Cassie and Shane are so cute together but the scars from their respective pasts and the situation they are in all serve to complicate their relationship. I loved the whole Emerson family and am looking forward to reading more about them and Cassie's friends. The writing of this book is very smooth and easy to read. The story flows very well and doesn't bog down anywhere. I would have l ...more

This was a great, clean but still steamy, story! I truly enjoyed it and look forward to reading more from this author. I am a little unsure about the structure of the series - stories being told in the backward perspective, especially since we read about the couples in this story, but I'm willing to give it a try. I'm sure they'll be just as good as this one.

Fun read with a lot of emotional tension and characters that were easy to like. The story pulled me along as Cassie was thrown unexpectedly into witness protection to hide her from a murderous gang intent on killing her. She falls in love (of's a romance novel), but trouble seems to come from the place she least expects it. This book was clean.

When I got promo information for this tour, it stated that Kimberly Krey is the master of romantic tension. Holy cow! They weren't lying! It was full of delicious tension and anticipation and everything I love about a good, clean romance.

This book was ok. It is a clean romance bit still has some pretty steamy kissing scenes. I just found myself not really connecting with the story so I wasn't as into it. I don't know why I was so disconnected.
It was good to read once and I did enjoy it. I just wasn't wowed. I do appreciate that Kimberly Krey kept it clean for the most part.
