Good gracious can Sofia Tate write a hot steamy romance.   A tall, dark and dreamy cowboy sets this story ablaze and the fact that he has Irish roots is a bonus.  I loved that the main female character Blakely, wasn’t the typical waif that fills most book pages.  She was smart, strong and independent and curvy; she was a more realistic character.   As with all the books by Sofia Tate I loved His for Now and could not put it down, I devoured it in one day!  This is the first book in The Byrne Bro ...more

But when he meets Blakely she doesn't go for his charm or anything he tries to dish out to her. Blakely is just in town to be in a friends wedding and has a lot on her plate back in Manhattan...so she doesn't have time for Ronan. But s

This is the first book that I’ve read by Sofia Tate and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This story doesn’t have a lot of twists and turns or surprises. For me it was more of an inner struggle of self confidence and self discovery.

The characters are well rounded (although I could always use a little more alpha in my H) and it’s well written. The plot moves quickly, which I like and despite the sometimes serious nature, it’s also a light tale of sacrifice and true love.

There’s also a glimpse of Declan, on

Tate finds strength in vulnerability. Her characters are people that are perfectly flawed, yet larger than life. In their weakest moments is when their courageous spirit shines through. Ronan and Blakely are caught in a masquerade of their own making. She's a woman on the mend, afraid to let anyone get too close. He's a man in need of an escape from the hassle his world has become. What ensues is a challenge that chips away at the pain of disappointment, the fear of self-doubt and illuminates th ...more

This is the first book in a trilogy. This was a good book. I absolutely loved Ronan and Blakely. Ronan was exactly who Blakely needed to bring her out of her shell both personally and professionally. And Blakely was exactly who Ronan needed to see things in a different light. Overall, this was a good book, and I look forward to reading the next one in the trilogy.

His For Now is book #1 in The Byrne Brothers series. Declan, Ronan and Liam are the Byrne brothers. This is Ronan‘s story. The Black Rose Ranch is owned and operated by Ronan’s family. Ronan’s best friend Sean is getting married at the ranch and he is the best man.

Blossom is a small town. Blakely Pierce clearly sticks out as an out-of-towner at the Blossom Café where she catches the eye of Ronan Byrne. He is immediately attracted to Blakely and is thrilled to know that she too will be part of S

HIS FOR NOW
is the second book that I have read by Sofia Tate and she definitely has me hooked. This is the first story in her new series about the Byrne Brothers and she certainly had me captured by the storyline and the characters.

Ronan Byrne was simply divine. A country boy at heart, his only time spent away from the family home was when he was away attending University. He is considered to be "quite a catch" by all the ladies, but someone in the

On his way back from a business meeting concerning his financially troubled ranch, Ronan stops in at the diner. There he spots a woman who is clearly from out of town and is instantly drawn to her. Blakely is in town for a friend’s wedding and isn’t too thrilled about the prospect of no wifi or the comforts of Manhattan. While attempting to squeeze in some work at the local diner she meets a man. Despite the attraction she feels her walls come up and she blows him off. But as luck would have it ...more

I adored this book. Everything from the storyline and the characters punched all the right buttons. The author has given us a wonderful tale that is funny, heartfelt and full of sass and romance.

We have the sexy Ronan who is dealing with a lot, including the fact his family’s ranch is in financial trouble. On his way back from a meeting with the bank, he stops at the local diner which is where he sees a stranger in town. Ronan is drawn to her and tries to talk with her but she basically blows h

His For Now wraps you up in the perfect blend of sweet and sexy! I'm so in love with Blossom, Nevada and the people that live there, most especially Blakely and Ronan! Sofia Tate brings us just enough sweet to send our hearts pitter pattering, and just enough sexy to have us clenching our thighs! Blakely is a city girl and a bit out of her comfort zone at a dude ranch for her best friends wedding. Ronan is the town's most eligible bachelor and not afraid to go after what he wants.

I absolutely adore Sofia Tate's style of writing!

I have to say that I am super excited for this series. Sofia Tate has a fresh voice and isn't afraid to have her characters tell it like it is--they're blunt but honest. I fell so in love with His For Now. Blakely, though from the city, certainly had a soft spot for Ronan once she let her walls down. She was tough on the exterior and I liked that about her. Ronan was about as good as they come and he did everything in his power to get Blakely to n

Blakely is a successful businesswoman in NY who is in Blossom, Montana to act as the maid of honor at her best friends wedding. Due to her past she is focused on her career and has no interest in love or relationships so when a sexy rancher asks her out she declines.

Ronan is handling a series of problems which include trying to keep the ranch viable. From the moment he sees Blakely in the diner he is intrigued and even though she turns him down he plans to use the fact that she is staying at the

I absolutely loved this book., The characters are excellent and well developed and this storyline is on fire.

Ronan and Blakely are our hero and heroine and I am so glad that Blakely is a strong independent woman who is not a push over. Ronan is a tall dark handsome cowboy dealing with so much and having to deal with his family ranch in financial difficult.

This is a hot steamy read like no other and Sofia Tate did a fabulous job telling the story. This is the first book in the series and I

I loved this book so hard! Be prepared and clear your schedule cause you will not be able to put this book down. A chance meeting on a dude ranch and sparks fly between Ronan and Blakely. Usually I am not down for city and country, but this book flowed so well. Blakely city girl at heart but in need for a change and Ronan is rancher to the core and wants nothing but to save the family ranch. Ronan has been burnt in the past, but I loved that he took a chance with Blakely. These two had a few bum ...more

“Opposites attract, 3 stars”

Blakely is a city girl with some major hang ups thanks to her past. When she travels to Blossom for her best friend’s wedding she didn’t know what to expect. She’s one of those women who fights every desire she has, and Ronan is no exception. Ronan is a rancher at heart. He lives and breaths his home. When he sees Blakely he’s intrigued, when he spends some time with her he wants her. But Blakely is hot and cold. Will he get her to give him a

I really liked this opposites attract romance. Spark fly when good old country boy Ronan meets big city gal, Blakely. I thought the chemistry between these two was steamy but there was a LOT of back and forth in their relationship and I have to say het after a bit that became somewhat frustrating. Both these characters have big issues that must be dealt with and that adds plenty of drama to this romance. I am posting my own opinion in this voluntary review.

City meets country never mixed so well. A chance meeting on a dude ranch and sparks fly between Ronan and Blakely. Hang onto this one you will not be able to put it down. Blakely city girl at heart but in need for a change and has some self esteem issues from child hood. One she meets Ronan you can tell things are different. Ronan is rancher to the core and wants nothing but to save the family ranch. He ha been burned in the past but I love how he takes a leap with Blakely. They may start off fa ...more

I think the best way to describe my reaction to the book, is to say that I liked it, but I did not love it.

I liked the setting: a small Nevada town, it was easy to visualize and become a part of.

I was not a fan of how quickly the book went. The whole book spans over a few months, but it is not a long book. Because of this, I felt like I wasn’t able to connect with the characters. Though I liked them, I did not love them.

Throughout the book, I was worried about the ending. Yet, I felt as thoug

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..When Ronan sees Blakely he is instantly intrigued, instantly attracted, but she won't give him the time of day. This however does not stop him from going after her, especially since she is the maid of honor in the wedding that he is also coming out in. Blakely is carrying emotional scars and she fears that Ronan would never really be interested in her, but he proves her wrong and as their romance starts heating up it time for her to go home and to make some deci ...more

Sweet and simple city girl meets cowboy book. What brought this book down for me was Blakely always complaining and second guessing herself about her body image. I get being a woman and being insecure, but how many times does a man have to want you and and tell you he thinks you're beautiful before you stop with the whining. It was just a bit much for me. I'm probably just pms-ing.

It is well written, just a bit basic and cookie cutter for me. I need l

Cute and hot!

Manhattanite Blakely is curvy and busy and is squeezing in as much work as possible while she is in Nevada for her bestie's wedding. Enter tall drink of water and rancher Ronan who goes into full pursuit mode once he realizes Blakely will be staying at his ranch for the week.

These two have a great meet-cute and their chemistry is sizzling hot. Very sexy read, and I always love a good HEA!
