I was looking for a rubbernecking kick and I got it – a big smack down!
Guess I deserved it!

What I just read is not improbable, rather this is what many RL women settle for and maybe they do live hea. A creep who lusts for another woman while slotting the h as a not-exactly-beautiful-okayish-body friend with benefits/booty call. An embarrassingly lovesick h who was always second best or even a non-blip for him as first he married a bitch (he loved) and who cheated and ripped him off (I do love so

I obviously love to torture myself since I kinda knew what was going to happen before I even started this book. Spoilers/Rant were graciously provided by an amazon forum participant who read and shared (She took a BIG one for the team!) what this terrible book had going on....which by the way, WAS NOT A Romance!

All I can say is, Thank god this book was free. I tried to return it but apparently you can't do that when the book is free. So...I deleted it. I have never deleted any book from

This is not a romance. There is no connection between Pic and Mandy except a lot of sex. On top of that, Pic spends most of the book lusting after the other woman. I gave it two stars cos I read to the end, hoping that Pic can redeem himself somehow or Mandy will stop being a doormat and kicks him in the balls. Nope. Nada. Waste of time.

Anna Jeffrey continues on with the Lockhart family, this time by following Drake's younger brother Pic. By the way the author describes this cowboy, he is delicious. And there is A LOT of heat in this book! * fans self *

This story is about a second chance at your first, true love. Pic and Mandy have been inseparable since they were both young kids. What started out as a friendship, turned into a romance by high-school, but once they both separated for college, that romance flickered away for Pic

im laughing my ass at all those 5 stars given.
if you looking to read this book, better read my review first and all the reviewers that dare to give this book it's less than 3 stars rating. coz BELIEVE me, some even want to erased this book from their mind after finishing it.

why in the world this was a romance novel? if romance means the Hero always getting a hard on and blunt words about "cum and cumming and cock" that frequently throwing around in this novel was a part of how romance is, then y

I enjoyed this story. The H has some serious emotional issues and was s-l-o-w-l-y maturing. On this level, he did not label his feelings for the h as love. He had had a history of 'one and done' but had been committed to his girlfriend for 2 years. His highly dysfunctional family and ex-wife were a large influence on his stunted maturity.

His mother (a piece of work) sent his typical choice of the perfect woman as a distraction. He was attracted to her and even kisses her but his budding awarene

At times, The Cattleman felt more like a family epic. The pace of the story is slower and this was an interesting--possibly more realistic--depiction of ranching life and small towns in Texas. While the romance between Pic and Amanda was already established, both--especially Pic--have to confront personal issues. I look forward to reading the next book.

What a clusterf*ck.

This book was a mess from start to finish. I was expecting a book about a second chance love story in which high school sweethearts find each other again after each experiencing messy marriages, what I got was a dying relationship with a selfish, misogynistic hero and a spineless heroine.

At the time our story begins the protagonists have been “dating” for two years since the heroine returned to their small town to support her sick father. Previous high school sweethearts, th
Let's just start with the elephant in the room...aka Pic... but instead of an elephant he is a jackass.

Mandy has loved him apparently from grade school and has had to sit by as he left her to go to college and married a trashy woman who wanted his money and who cheated on him WHOM HE STILL LOVES...Pic is an idiot. But when you meet his mother you know where he gets it from..she is a nasty piece of work herself. Miss Betty has done everything that she can to destroy anyone who dares to love her b

I have not read the first book in this series but that did not stop me from enjoying this second book. The author provides just enough information so readers will not become lost but are not overwhelmed with everything from the first book. I thought the book would go one direction but the author took the book in a different direction and worked out so much better than my thoughts.

Readers are quickly introduced to the whole Lockhart family. The family is waiting

Second chances romance with two high school sweethearts and some gold digging selfish people that make trouble.
Pickett Lockhart is finally doing what he wanted from childhood which is running the vast Double-Barrel Ranch outside of Drinkwell, Texas for his rich powerful family. He also has a sweet girlfriend, Amanda Breckenridge, who is busy being a successful swim team coach and English teacher at the local high school. They don't see each other as often as they like, but they have chemistry in

If you love cowboys and romance ...

I didn't read the first book in the series, but that didn't take away from me reading this one. I found it very interesting and immediately drawn to Pic (Pickett). Something about that cowboy and his relationship with his family, as well as his history. The past seems to define how he looks at the future and what he should and shouldn't do. The story revolves around Pic and his family, starting with the new marriage of his older brother, Drake. The characters a

There was quite a bit to enjoy about this story. Cowboy romances are always enjoyable. The dynamic of a large family is always a great tie for a series, and a meddling mother who can't keep her nose to herself is a great test for any relationship. I also enjoy reunion romances. The thought of reuniting with a high school sweetheart and finally getting your happy ever after is such a sweet story. I enjoyed the way the author wove the story and look forward to reading more in the series

Wasn’t sure I’d fall for another Lockhart man after the first book because Drake was so dang hot! But I did! There is a lot going on in this family and the author keeps it all rolling smoothly! Wonderful book!!

Gostei da escrita desta autora e vou acompanhar a série.
Mas o herói transando com a heroína e pensando em outra vadia não me convenceu.
