My Thoughts:

I think it would be completely impossible not to fall in love with new stories in this series, because every time I pick up another one, I'm in love all over again. Ty and Whitney have known each other from his stops at her coffee place, but when they first met he was with somebody. After she starts working at a different place and he runs into her again, he's available and interested in something more with her. While t

I love the thunder mountain guys and I was glad to finally get Ty's story. As much as I wanted to love this story I just had a hard time understanding their relationship and how fast it moved.

Ty lives and works as a lawyer in Cheyenne. He would see Whitney working while he got his coffee and then one day she just wasn't there. He goes to Sheridan on his way home to see his foster parents and there she is in a new location.

Although these two have known each other a year they are practically str

These books are comfort reads for me. I just love a good cowboy story and especially one that allows me to revisit old friends.

This read will not tear at your heart strings but it delivers a good holiday story.

I will be continuing with this series as I want to check in on the characters.

I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my honest review.

A cup of coffee, Chinese food and a calendar are the perfect way to start for our hero and heroine. Vicki writes cowboy romance with tenderness, heat and lots of sexy charm.

A fast read with heart, Vicki Lewis Thompson’s “Cowboy Under the Mistletoe” doesn’t disappoint. This page-turner gets ya going tells of a somewhat world weary former foster kid turned business professional and the cute barista who's had a crush on him for more than a year.
Ty Slater is like a perfect cup of coffee. He’s strong and stands alone, no embellishments, just like a great cuppa joe. Or he was until Rangeland Roasters’ Sheridan manager Whitney entices him to try one of her peppermint ple

This is the third book in the Thunder Mountain Brotherhood Series and I think the glow might be starting to fade. Vicki Lewis Thompson has thus far written a fun series about a bunch of foster children, now adults (and all male), come together to try and save their foster parent's ranch. The one place they all called home at some time or other.

Initially I was charmed. I found the characters well developed and fun. This time, not

I got this book because of the back cover description, but the cowboy on the front was the reason I picked it up to start with the store. Vickie did a great job and I am glad I got to read this for the holiday season I want to read the others too.

It’s the day before Thanksgiving when Ty Slater shows up in Sheridan to have the weekend with his foster family. However, he finds that the Barista he had chatted up in the past before she left Cheyenne is here at the new Ranstand Roasters location.

Heather's review from Smut MattersI haven't read very many categories recently, and, unfortunately this one probably won't bring me back. Ty and Whitney fell in insta-love. Sort of. They knew each other when she worked at a coffee shop in Cheyenne, but when she was transferred to the new store in Sheridan and promoted, they didn't see each other anymore. But now Ty is in Sheridan for Thanksgiving, and he doesn't have a girlfriend anymore, so they decide to see where it goes.

Just by the cover you'll know that it's gonna be a hot holiday book and this book did not disappoint. It's fun to read, I loved that the two characters had backstories that made me like the characters even more. They both had some type of tragedy that impacted their lives in different ways and they made the the best of what happened and lived good lives. This book was a bit about the healing of both characters and because of hi

These two heats up the house for thanksgiving! WOW!
This is a steamy story, the story of two people who both have experienced a great loss in their lives, that have shaped up the people they are today. But both of them have a very different way to approach life and the grief, and no matter their feelings, this will eventually affect their relationship as well.
I loved the series when it first started, with the foster boys, their brotherhood and all for one attitude, with their love for Rosie and H

I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review and here it is.

I've enjoyed the previous books in this series, and this one is no exception. It's a sweet, spicy, sexy and charming story that's just perfect for the holiday season.

Ty Slater, lives and works in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and loves the coffee at Rangeland Roasters--he's also had his eye on a pretty barista who works there, Whitney. When he returns home to Sheridan for Thanksgiving, he's pleasantly surprised to see that Whit

Smoking hot!! No other way to describe the interactions between Ty and Whitney...the author certainly has a way of bring three dimensional life to her characters. The story captures your attention from page one and keeps you engaged until the very end. The relationships between all the characters are so well developed that you truly feel their emotions. The banter is extremely clever and fits so effortlessly into the characters personalities, it is never forced and truly leaves you chuckling on ...more

I really liked the idea behind this book. Two people have repeated chance encounters and are attracted to each other, but don't act on it. Fast forward several months and they reconnected and this time pursue the attraction.
As much as I liked the idea, I struggled with how it was executed.
It seemed that both Ty and Whitney were excited to get to know each other, but were moving slowly then both their personalities seemed to change and they, especially Whitney, became almost aggressive.

Cheesy holiday contemporary romances are so not my thing. I decided to read this one to fulfill a requirement for a readathon. That this short book took me over two weeks to finish should tell you something. The plot lacked substance, the characters were flat, and ugh insta-romance galore.
The steam factor was pretty damn high though, so if sexy holiday romances with no real plot are your thing then you might enjoy this more than I did.

I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Such a sweet short story. These two characters had such a strong connection, but will Ty be able to come to terms with his past and be able to truly over on with Whitney? Even though this was a short read it was packed full of emotions and passion. I can't wait for Brant's story.

Another great one

Vicki never fails to pull me in and make me feel the story. Ty and Whitney and all the Thunder Mountain family make you want to join them. Maybe Brant's story is next? Can't wait Vicki.....
