Kylie—my new neighbor—with her smart@ss mouth and destructive dog. It’s obvious she doesn’t belong here with her designer boots and city girl attitude but she’s stubborn

This was a 3- 3.5 star read for me. I didn't connect with these characters for some reason. I am a huge fan of this author and sad that this one didn't work for me. Still an enjoyable Instalove read.

I received an ARC for an honest review.

I loved enemies to lovers and this one was so cute! They fought like cats and dogs but their chemistry was undeniable.

Luke was what you would expect from an alpha mountain man. Rugged, protective, and a sexy dirty talker! Kylie was the complete opposite of him. She was an outgoing city girl who had no idea about mountain life and came with two crazy dogs. I loved the banter and bickering between these two!

I really enjoyed this one and it was a good story

I absolutely loved this story!

Loved the chemistry between Luke and Kylie.

Kylie was a firecracker who had an extra sweet spot for her dogs. The dogs themselves were hilarious.

Luke was intense, but in the right way. That man made me swoon with his gruffness.

4 big stars!

Kylie and Luke prove that sometimes mother nature and lady love will team up to make the most stubborn of people bend to their undeniable destinies. When Kylie inherited a remote cabin away from the hussel and bussel of city life, she knew it was just the ticket to starting over. While she may not be survival girl, she is determined to get back to nature and really make a go of it. Just her, her pups, and her annoyingly rude neighbor. Luke could tell from the moment he laid eyes on Kylie that sh ...more
When Kylie moved into the cabin close to him, Luke knew she was trouble. Living in the wilderness Luke had what it took to survive the harsh seasons that come, Kylie in her designer boots and leggings is completely unprepared and Luke plans to stay away. However, when Kylie shows up on his door during a snowstorm with her two dogs Luke lets her in. The spark is there but can they trust that the spark will last.

Chemistry was off the charts from the beginning. I was completely hooked by this coupl

This was a good, short story with awesome main characters and the dogs, Rosie & Kozmo were funny as hell, some of their antics made me laugh so much that I have to admit I almost peed my pants, lol :)

I got to say that Luke was a hot and dreamy and complex alpha male. He seemed one thing on the outside to people but once you get to know him, just like Kylie, it's the complete opposite of what you would expect when you first start reading this short read. Some people may seem something that th

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, and dirty talking naughty fun.

This is Kylie and Luke’s story. Luke move to the mountains for peace and quiet. Kylie was left a cabin and now just wants live in the mountain with her dogs. She is unprepared for not only her neighbor who is super-hot. But she has trouble with the weather and what she was expecting versus what is happening. With all the back and forth you just must wonder how far they will push before the chemistry t

I really loved, loved and enjoyed reading this story.
Luke moved to the mountains for solitude, built his cabin, started a business of chopping firewood and has the customers to provide income to stay. Peace and quiet. Now there is a new neighbor next door and she doesn't even respect, not just my privacy, but she has two dogs that come over and use his property as their toilet and also get into the garbage and drag it out, tempting the wild life.

I liked how this story started off with the main characters not really liking each other but having to live together for survival. Kylie and her dogs have moved up to a cabin she now owns and her neighbor, Luke, is annoyed at her dog. Living in the mountains, Luke is prepared for the hard winters but when Kylie isn't prepared, he reluctantly offers her a place to stay while the storm rages on. Little by little, they get over their "hatred" of each other and then the sparks really start to fly. T ...more

Luke obviously doesn't share his woman's thoughts on certain things, "she rolls her eyes and places her hands on her hips. “He’s a dog, and he’s scared too. That’s the kind of * *** they do.” I feel my eyes widen at the angry tone she’s throwing my way. She’s mad at me? For pointing out the obvious—that her dog is effing destructive?" Luke really does have his limits, “baby, you can’t say my name like that or I’ll have no choice but to be buried balls deep inside of you again until you’re scream ...more

I received an ARC for my honest opinion of this book from #booksprout

This was a cute little read, though it was not a book that I just had to finish in one setting. It was still a good read. I LOVED Luke! What a dreamy alpha mountain man.. Kylie was a character that I had a hard time swallowing there were several times in the book she would say or do something and I would be like "Nope, nope totally taking Luke's side on this say youre sorry." LOL. The dogs were finny, and constantly getting int

Jenika Snow est de retour dans un nouveau duo avec une auteure qui commence à peine dans le métier apparemment. Kelsey King est inconnue au bataillon, son style se démarque dans le livre car différent de celui de Jenika et bien que ce ne soit pas une ultra-réussite, cela reste tout de même quelque chose de sympa.

Kylie has decided to pack up from the city and move to her aunt's cabin way up in the woods that she inherited. She has brought her two dogs along for company and she is looking forward to this new adventure. But soon reality sets in and her dream life may not be expected, especially with her hot grumpy neighbor.

Luke has lived up in the woods for years and loves his solitude. He had no problem with the older lady that lived next door but this young one that just moved in has no idea what she is

Ruthless Mountain Man is a quick enemies to lovers read that will warm your heart and your body. It delivers fun banter, stubbornness and fully on sexiness.

Kylie has just moved into her Aunt’s cabin with her two dogs and her new neighbor is frustrating. He can’t seem to stand her dogs, he’s arrogant and he’s damn sexy. No matter what, she’s going to give him a piece of her mind. Yet, when I huge storm comes, knocking out her power, she’s forced to seek shelter from the one man that irritates her

I really enjoyed this story about Luke, a mountain man and his new neighbor Kylie. Kylie moved into her aunt's mountain cabin after her aunt died and left it to her. Kylie lived with her two dogs. When Luke first met Kylie she was looking for her dog and he thought she was trying to get close to a stray so he tackled her into the snow. They had a fight about the dog and Kylie thought Luke was a jerk and Luke thought she was a spoiled city girl. When Kylie is unprepared for a bad storm, She knows ...more
This story is short, fast paced and enjoyable. I read this book in one sitting and was satisfied throughout. This story has a slightly slower pace than the previous books of Jenika Snow’s but it was still fast paced for the majority of it.
I liked Luke and Kylie. The banter and bickering between them was hilarious.
I totally understood why Luke was so annoyed by Kylie’s dog. He was in the right. Yes he was a jerk at times but he was one that was speaking the truth. Kylie actually irritated me a

A sexy comedy that is well written with likable characters. Kylie is the girl next door type that inherits a cabin and moves in with her two dogs to start a new life. Luke moved to the mountains for piece and quite and was not happy about losing his elderly neighbor to two pain in the butt dogs and a sexy women who makes him hard, a feeling he is not used to. The dogs have caused a love hate relationship between the two cabin owners. When an unexpected blizzard creeps up to fast and Kylie is not ...more

This is the first time I’ve read Kelsey King and Jenika Snow together and have to say I was entranced by there story telling from the first page!! Kylie inherited her grandmothers cabin and knows it’s exactly what she needs to make a peaceful life for herself but that is until she is literally bowled over by her Mountain man neighbour.
Luke has been quietly living in his cabin for ten years now and loves the tranquility and solitude it affords him but when he is suddenly faced with a vicious dog

Ruthless Mountain Man is the story of Luke and Kylie.

Luke moved to the mountains to get away from everything and everyone. He wants peace and quiet and that's what he got until Kylie moved next door. They started out as enemies and Luke was very nice to help Kylie at her time of need. He's not really ruthless as he seemed to be at first.

Kylie is a strong character as well. Very independent but a little immature. She was definitely unprepared fo

***I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.***
This was the first book I have read from either author and it was great! There were some cliche moments where I don't think things would have happened in that way, but you will totally get over it because the book was great. Very fast paced which I also enjoyed because the book wasn't drawn out! Sometimes when books are too drawn out, it can get boring so I am happy with the fast pace.
Luke was exactly as I expected. He was every bit of man

Kylie inherited her great aunt’s mountain home when she passed. Such a beautiful place to live with her two fur babies would be a delight. She got busy straightening everything out and thought she should start preparing for winter in a bit. Unfortunately, winter decided to drop in early.
Luke was Kylie’s closest neighbor. Tall, big, gorgeous. If he wasn’t such an arrogant jerk, he’d be perfect.
Luke’s new neighbor is a distraction . She’s going to cause him sleepless nights for sure. One negative
