While I did get an ARC of this book, I read it through Kindle Unlimited, so even though I have changed my review since initially posting it as part of a blog tour (things bothered me after some reflection), she at least got some money out of it. I have removed the post from my blog so as not to ruin her tour and contacted the organiser to remove me from the schedule altogether.

May is Cowboy Month on Love in a time of Feminism, and we're kicking things off with a very sexy-looking book. (I will a

City girl meets hot cowboy. This is an enjoyable and cute story. I was happy to have read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

The Sweet Life is the story of Alexis, a young business woman in New York, and Mitch, a cowboy who runs a dude ranch in upstate New York (I'm guessing, it wasn't very clear). Alexis is given the case of The Sweet Life Dude Ranch, and her job is to go in and help make them profitable again.

In order to get a good feel of what the ranch is like, Alexis and her two friends, Jo Jo and Nicole head there for a girls weekend. When they arrive, they are greeted by Mitch, a stunning cowboy who works on th

Alexis is a city girl, who is very successful as an account executive at her firm, but she's worked many hours proving herself, so she hasn't had much of a love life. When she gets a new account for a dude ranch, her & her besties take a weekend to look things over, and that's when she meets Mitch, a hot cowboy. She feels a very strong chemistry with him, but when she finds out that he's the owner's son, she feels like she needs to nip it in the bud. However, she has to travel back there for ...more

Fans of cowboy romances with a little erotic twist will surely enjoy The Sweet Life by Dakota Star.

I think the best part of this book was the anticipation of how Alexis and Mitch would overcome all that stood in their way. Absolutely love cowboy's and their laid back control. There is just something about these guys and I think Dakota Star did a fabulous job with Mitch. He was no stranger to the city and that is why I think I enjoyed him so much. He was CERTAIN that country life was it for him a

When Alexis is tasked with turning around the fortunes of a ranch with her marketing skills, she and her friends head there for a weekend away to experience it first hand. She discovers her affinity for nature and Mitch, the owner's son. She loves the charm and the beauty of the place and the time there and Mitch makes her question her priorities and her future.

This started out one way and turned into something else along the way. I would have liked a little more exploring of this something else

This book was sweet with the inside look at how a dude ranch works! Alexis has always worked hard at her career and loves her life in New York until she meets Mitch on the dude ranch. Their chemistry is exposive. Mitch loves his life on the dude ranch, which is owned by his surgeon father. Can these two find love and live somewhere the other is not used to?

Very well written with believable characters! I love reading books with cowboys in it! I can not wait to read more from this author.

The Sweet Life is a sweet story that takes the country boy meets city girl and gives it a shake up. I loved the strength and determination of Alexis, the way Mitch stands up for his ranch, but really enjoyed their first steamy encounter and how quickly it turned when Mitch realizes just who Alexis is and what she is at his dude ranch for.
I did find it hard to stay involved in the story line with the basic formatting and editing issues, but once I got past that, the story really pulled me in.

When Alexis is tasked with using her marketing skills to save a ranch, she is not prepared to cross paths with sexy cowboy Mitch. As their relationship progresses, Mitch has Alexis questioning her ambitions and future plans. This is a well written, sweet romance, and the only downside, in my opinion, is that the story felt a tad rushed in places, however, I would like to read more of this authors’ work.

A quick contemporary romance featuring two fun characters with great chemistry. It’s city girl meets country boy with a sweet ending. Alexis is a strong and fiery character that is easy to like. She is a great pairing for Mitch who is strong and passionate about the Dude Ranch. This book is short and sweet. It is easy to fly through and great for anyone interested in a quick romance read.

I was completely immersed in this story from the get-go.

The characters were probably my favorite part. I really enjoyed each of their stories. I didn't feel like anyone was out of place or didn't fit.

The plot was smooth and I liked the way it flowed from chapter to chapter. The romance had a sweet build up that led into multiple HOTT moments.


And might I add a gorgeous cover?
