He’s not a man to be played with.

Not without consequences.

For five years, Levi Tucker had no control over his life, locked up for a crime he didn’t commit. Never again would any woman—any desire—overtake this cowboy’s common sense. Now Faith Grayson, the sexy, brilliant architect he’s hired to design his grand new house, is sorely testing his resolve. Faith is too youn

Levi has just been released from prison. He spent five long years in that pit, for a crime he did not commit, which was supposedly killing his wife. Well he's out now and he's going to show everyone he's someone to be reckoned with and he's going to start with the first and most important part of his plan. He's bought a beautiful piece of land and on that prime land he's going to build a home that's going to make a gran

Levi and Faith meet when he hires her to design his dream home after spending five long years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. He’s got a lot of anger, understandably so, and is a bent-on revenge by living well, but is a life centered on revenge really living well? Faith is a young and Levi feels there’s no place in his life for someone so innocent. With her passion and zest for life, Faith’s an irresistible temptation.

At twenty-five, Faith is a young design sensation. Her talent

There are two romance authors I read for the sake of sinking into their familiar world: Betty Neels (I’m in the process of reading ALL her books, presently on 24 of 134) and Maisey Yates, incredibly prolific both. Do their books blend together and I don’t remember hide nor hair of any particular one? Absolutely. And yet, I can’t quit them. Neels and Yates, unlike in every way, share a deep, profound, abiding theme: no matter how chaste the Neels romance or carnal the Yates, the connection betwee ...more
For a book about an angry ex-con this sure was a sweet smooth ride.
Faith is the child prodigy architect, whose never been tempted by a man... until now.
Levi is the last guy any of her big brothers and nosey-ass sisters-in-law would like her to date, let alone hook up with.
But she does.
And it starts as fun and games but becomes more.
I want to emphasize that Faith wasn't crushing on him to start with. It was pure sexual chemistry... until it wasn't.

That's about all there is to it. Levi needs to
3.5 stars

I’m always in for whatever Maisey writes, but I’ve really been enjoying this series.

I really liked Faith and Levi. She’s sweet and he’s gruff and they’re both trying to prove something. I enjoyed reading how they slowly discovered their similarities. The chemistry was great and I was thrilled to see that there were actually some somewhat meaningful conversations.

Plot wise, it was fast moving since this is a shorter story. Of course I would have liked it to be a bit more fleshed out,

Levi lost five years of his life in prison because his wife was a one heck of a selfish witch! However, he had a plan to show the world that he may have been down, but don’t count him out...yet. Hiring Faith to build him the biggest house was just the first step of many. Falling for Faith, however, was never part of the plan!

Faith was really sweet. More brainy then feels, she understood logic and numbers and wasn’t prepared for the storm of feelings Levi brought out in her. I had a lot of fun se

A beautiful story of resilience and redemption. The unfairness the hero had to go through will make you mad but the never-ending hope and the precious romance will put the pieces of your heart back together.

Need Me, Cowboy. Is there a time when I don't need a cowboy? Especially one from Yates? there's really not! lol This one had a crazy unique set up, too!

The Gist: Levi's spent 5 years of his life locked away for his wife's murder. Only thing is...he didn't kill her. She's still alive. And he is pissed. And definitely ready for a bit of revenge on his money hungry social climbing ex. Thumbing his nose in her direction

Levi Trucker has been released from prison after being committed for a crime he didn’t commit. Fortunately, Levi has more than one good opportunity to rebuild his life. For starters, he is about to build a beautiful new home.

Levi hires a very successful architect, who happens to be quite a beautiful woman. There is no doubt to Levi that he desires her, but with his past, and with her being a bit younger than him, there is a line that he will not pass.

I liked this book. Let me start off by saying that the first part of this book was really good, but the second part just fell a little flat. It lacked something that I can’t quite put my finger on. It left me with a weird taste in my mouth.

Levi- I loved him so much! This book will make your heartbreak for Levi. He was just so tortured and punished, so worthy of your support and love. All I wanted to do was hug him

Maisey Yates is one of my favorite new-to-me authors. Her books always have surprising depth, smoking hot love scenes, and well-rounded characters no matter the book length. I liked Need Me, Cowboy, but unfortunately, it didn’t knock my socks off.

Need Me, Cowboy is about a millionaire ex-con cowboy, recently exonerated for the murder of his wife, because she’s still alive; and a young, gifted, relatively naive architect he hires from prison to design his house. Catnip plot, right? I wanted to lo

I absolutely adore faulty, awkward characters in the stories because they are so easy to relate to, to find the common ground with them, to understand their predicaments. And Levi Tucker and Faith Grayson deliver as the faulty and awkward protagonists, tenfold.
I can only imagine the amount of anger, disappointment, hate, and need for revenge that is churning inside Levi. Yet all those negative thoughts are very focused on their target, and he does not take it out on just any passerby. With all

Need Me, Cowboy by Maisey Yates is the sixth story in her Copper Ridge: Desire series where cowboys and ranchers meet strong women who confound and inspire them in sexy and thoroughly entertaining romances.

Faith Grayson is an accomplished architect and key to her family’s business success in custom designing homes based on her designs. But she’s tired of her older brothers viewing her as their little sister and not a grown woman who can make her own choices, and her own mistakes. When Levi Tucke

When I need a light, quick read to up my reading pace I go with my tried and true Maisey Yates' Copper Ridge Cowboy series.


Ain't no shame in my cowboy game. In Need Me, Cowboy Levi Tucker does not disappoint.

Levi Tucker is fresh out of jail for a crime he didn't commit. He was exonerated but that doesn't give him the last 5 years of his life back, nor ease up the revenge he seeks on his ex-wife for possibly faking her death: he has something to prove to her and the town. So

"Love doesn't ask permission. Love gets in the cracks. And it expands. And it finds us sometimes when we least expect it."
This was a lovely novella-ish romance from Maisey Yates; it's set in Copper Ridge and you see a lot of the matched-up couples come through, but you can still read and enjoy the book without having read their stories. The fact that Faith and Levi keep their relationship a secret for most of the book helps you focus on the development of their relationship and make

I love Maisey Yates. I've read all of her Copper Ridge and Gold Valley books. I feel badly for being anything but effusive about her writing. But I didn’t love her latest Copper Ridge (Desires) story Need Me Cowboy. I guess even though Faith is twenty-five and already has a hugely successful professional career you could call this a coming of age story as she fights to determine the direction of her professional future and her personal life of course losing her virginity and her heart along the ...more

I just love these quick little reads from Maisey. This one was an enlightening one about where you find your self and how to let go of the things that hold you back. Levi was an angry man and had every right to be, Faith was the quintessential good girl. Together they were perfect until Levi just couldn't let go. Do they find each other or will he just walk away? ...more

Maisey Yates has become a go-to author for me--I've loved both her Copper Ridge and her Gold Valley series, and I generally fall in love with her main characters, but because I voluntarily requested an advance reader copy of this novel months ago, and because the download didn't include a cover photo, I didn't realize this was a shorter novel written for the Harlequin Desire line, which explains why I felt this novel was too short, too rushed, and didn't have the emotional depth I've come to exp ...more

Maisey Yates is one of my favorite authors and I was looking forward to this next installment in the Copper Ridge series. Each of her sibling's stories have been a bit unconventional and this one fit right in. Levi was tried and convicted for killing his wife, who it turns out just wanted to disappear from their life and didn't come forward to exonerate him at trial. The consequences: he served 5 years in prison before his wife was found alive and he was released.

I really loved this latest Copper Ridge book by Maisey Yates. It can definitely be read as a stand-alone alone...all you missed was secondary characters’ own coupling up.
Levi and Faith are definitely a mis-matched couple. He’s fresh out of prison, innocent of the crime he was accused of, and very angry. She’s a brilliant new face in architecture world, lacking in her personal life, but optimistic in general. While there’s a bit of an age difference, and she’s inexperienced, I feel like they wer

He decides that flaunting his wealth, that she can't touch anymore, is his best revenge. Part of that will include a magnificent house, and who better to design it than Faith Grayson, local girl who has begun to receive national recognition for her architectural designs.

Faith and Levi's story is simply wonderful--they are both really strong characters who have so much more inside them than first appears. Faith especially kept surprising me (not to mention Levi and even her own family) with her inner strength and determination--she really is so much more than her young age and relationship inexperience would make her seem.

Levi and Faith are amazing together. I cannot stress that enough. AMAZING!

The concept of this story is wonderful and heartbreaking and makes me angry. Levi already had a chip on his shoulder before prison, of course he’s going to be a bitter man when he gets out. Faith, on the other hand, has been protected her whole life. She feels she has a lot to prove, she’s ready to stand on her own two feet without input from her brothers, but there isn’t a terrible past or incident she needs to get beyond

Levi lost five whole years of his life he can’t get back all because of his manipulative ex now he wants to show the people and that ex that he can do so much better starting with the house he has always wanted to build and he wants the best to design it and that’s Faith. Faith is the youngest and has three overprotective brothers that still treat her like a child even though she is 25.

She knows taking this job with an ex con will upset her brothers so she keeps it secret.
