Love it!
I love a great feel good, contemporary romance and this one fit the bill perfectly. I had read one of the previous books in the series last year so I was familiar with the underlying theme. However, each one of these books I found to be standalone stories, so don't be afraid to check them out.

This book was a fun, lighthearted story of two brothers and the cute neighbor next-door. With a plot to make Emma's boss jealous, Vince starts fake dating her and soon realizes his frozen

I have been waiting for Vince's book ever since I met him in the first book in the series, In an Army Ranger's Arms. There is just something about Vince that drew me to him, could it be his charismatic personality? Possibly. Could it be his cooking skills? Possibly, I mean seriously who doesn't like a man that can cook something other than frozen pizza. Or, Could it be the way he cares for those whom he loves? ABSOLUTELY! I find it terribly sexy when man goes above and beyond what an other frien ...more

After having her heart broken by a series of military men, Emma Roberts has set herself a deadline before which she hopes Stefan, her doctor colleague who is also her long term high school crush, will ask her out on a date . . . . but it isn’t working! When her neighbour, Dom - a military man who is more like a brother to her - is seriously injured, his brother Vince comes to look after him. Dom suggests that Vince should be Emma’s fake boyfriend to make her crush take more notice o

It was ok. It’s a Hallmark movie with sex - Emma and Vince are very nice, and pretty oblivious. This story and their main conflict is dependent on their desire to be selfless. The inevitable misunderstandings, which are crystal clear to the reader, were predictable and on the whole, very sweet.

Unfortunately, it had a tendency to be repetitive and I wasn’t drawn to either character. Just about the whole town, with one obvious exception, feels like it’s carved out of cream cheese. There is a “tri

I stumbled across this book by accident and couldn't help but one click it straight away as the cover and the synopsis drew me in. Vince and Emma's story was everything you want in a romance book, it was fun, light hearted, flirty and enough heat to keep you warm on the coldest of nights. Their story at times had me anxious and feeling the heartache that these two were suffering at not only their own hands but from their pasts clouding their judgement and decisions. This was not only my first Do ...more

Loved this one!

This is the 4th book in the series and so far, I hasn’t disappointed.

This time we get Vince and Emma. We’ve seen Vince in previous books, so we knew a little about him. Now he drops everything to help his injured brother, where he meets a lovely neighbor with quite the problem, lol.

I loved these two, Vince showed a funny and quite charming side and he was perfect for the lovely Emma. I did think she REALLY needed to let her crush go… like years ago, but she just needed to be show

Vince is one of those men that have the power to make yoy forget things, "crap. She’d forgotten she was on the phone with her mom. Dragging her gaze from the lean hunk of temptation, she cleared her throat. “Uh… yeah.” Vince doesn't have to worry about his woman being bashful, "oh? Care to tell me what entrée you’d like me to prepare?” She unzipped his jeans , then pushed them down to his ankles." I loved this book, Vince was so easy to love. ...more

I love this series and this installed lived up to my expectations. Wonderful characters, humor and heart. I loved the little snippets of conversation between Emma and her mother on the phone, I felt it really added to the story dynamic. Vince's brother Dom was a great foil for his character and I look forward to seeing more of him in future books (hint, hint) and the wedding scene at the end just took the cake.

She needed to get a grip and focus on their plan…not his butt. Although, gripping his butt was a good plan.

I’ve read—and loved—every book in the Men of At-Ease Ranch so far. But I can honestly say that I haven’t laughed as hard at any of them as I did at this one . . .


Army Ranger with Benefits benefits from a lot of things—Donna Michaels’ excellent writing, two likable lead characters, a series-worth of equally likable secondary characters and a charm that puts the reader At-Ease, even in the n

However, when he meets Emma Roberts, he never imagined he'd be helping her to win the heart of the guy she really wants. Yet, the more time they spend together, the more Vince finds himself doing the one thing he never thought he'd ever do again -- falling in love. Will Vince and Emma be able to overcome the obstacles they face to be together, or will their past demons keep them

How much I love former army ranger Vince Acardi, oh let me count the ways...
I have adored this series from the first book, and I have been hoping for Vince to get his own HEA because he won my heart over at 'hello', and in Army Ranger With Benefits, he proves to be even more than I could have dreamed of.
The reasons why this series had the fast track to my heart are many. The banter and humor are just in my ally, the characters are charming, the bond between the brothers in arms is tight, there

There is both cursing (including f-bombs) and some on-page sex in this book. If those things will cause you to leave a bad review, this might not be the book for you.

Army Ranger With Benefits is a really fun take on a fake relationship, and a sweet chemistry-at-first-sight romance. Vince, being the good dude that he is, tries to help Emma by pretending to date her to make her more appealing to the oblivious doctor she's been crushing on for forever. These two had a ridiculous amount of chemistry

Army Ranger with Benefits by Donna Michaels is book 4 in her The Men At-Ease Ranch series. I have read all but one in the series and highly recommended them to read but they can also be read as a standalone book also. This is Vince and Emma's story and I give the book at 4.8 stars.

I have read the previous three books in this series, and I have to say, this one is one of my favorite stories .
The series centers around the men and women who have made The Ease Ranch their home. A ranch as well as construction company in Texas made up of military men and women who have gone through the devastations of war, injured physically and mentally. All honorable and willing to give each other a hand and a new reason for living.

This is the first book I have read by Donna Michaels and I was taken by surprise by this 4.5-Star well developed, exciting, fun storyline. Emma decides that she needs to employ drastic measures for the doctor, her long time crush, to take notice & ask her out. She decides what will work best is for the doctor to think someone else is interested in her and she feels the best man for the job is her neighbors brother. Vince is retired military and there is no way they could have more than a fake re ...more

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.

Another Ranger down and one to go! It is so much fun to watch each man meet their match and read how some fight it, others run from it, and the brave few embrace it! Poor Vince did a bit of all of them and yet you can understand why he hesitates!

Emma - what can I say!, she had a crush on the same guy for years! When her friend suggests using another man to wake up Stephan, she finds that guy in her neighbor, Dom's brother, Vince. Wow, the sparks bet

This is such a lighthearted and fun read, I loved it! All the characters are great and it's really well-written. I especially enjoyed the relationship between Dom and Vince.
Emma is a sweet and warmhearted woman, who happen to have a good sense of humor, the only thing she lacks is luck when it comes to men. However, after few bad break-ups she has learnt her lesson.

All Emma wants for a co-worker, a Doctor, to ask her out. So, when her neighbor suggests she fake-date his very own brother (Vince) to get the Doctor to notice her, she moves forward with the plan despite being insanely interested in Vince. And what do you know, Vince and Emma's chemistry distracts Emma enough to forget the Doctor for a little bit. Emma's not sure her end-goal should change, though, even when she finds herself falling for the former Army Ranger.

Whether Donna Michaels is writing about military men or cowboys, she has a way of making her characters come to life for the reader.

A great addition to the series. And if you didn't adore Vince before, you will now. My goodness, he could very well be the perfect man. He is caring, family oriented, hardworking, protective, sexy as all get out, and can freaking cook! Then there is Emma. I loved her! She was hysterica, said whatever came to mind, protective of her friends, and wanted to start going after who she wanted. However, life had different plans for these two and it was smoking hot.
