It's not often that I judge a book but its cover, but a cowboy who is also a firefighter! I needed to know more about this awesomeness. This is my first Kim Redford book and I enjoyed her writing style. Eden and Shane had hot chemistry, even though the storyline is often seen on small-town /cowboy books. Overall, it's an enjoyable read, with a cute town setting and funny well thought secondary characters. I will be looking to read more stories by Kim Redford.

Hot for a Cowboy is the fourth book in Kim Redford's Smokin' Hot Cowboys series. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and wasn't at all happy with books #2 and #3, but I thought I'd give this installment a try in hopes that the author would have recaptured the things I liked so much in Book #1. I'm sad to say, it didn't happen, and although I tried several times over the past week to read this novel to the end, I simply couldn't, and I can only give it a 2-star rating for several reas ...more

Shane you know likes to have his girl visualize certain things, “I don’t want to talk at all.” And he tossed back the covers to reveal what she did to him." Shane is a great negotiator“We’ll sleep in my room.” He guided her in that direction. “If I can’t watch over you to make sure you’re safe, I won’t sleep a wink.” I liked this book, I liked Shane. ...more

I have always enjoyed returning to Wildcat Bluff and HOT FOR A COWBOY was no exception. This time we’ll watch one woman who has lost everything and returned home in imagined disgrace, and the one man who still sees her as his special lady find a second chance at love… if they can get beyond the past.

Almost a decade ago, Eden left Wildcat Bluff for California where she had a successful career, married, and seemed to be living her dream… until her slimeball jerk of a n

Eden Rafferty has just returned to Wildcat Bluff in a sorry state. Her career in Los Angeles is lost thanks to her lowdown, snake-in-the-grass, lying, cheating ex-husband and on top of destroying her career the slimeball has taken almost everything she owned in the divorce. Ranch radio station KWCD in the Wildcat Den which was left to her by her Uncle Clem is all she has left. It's where she got her start in broadcasting with DJ Wildcat Jack. Now it's where she intends to start over.

This was a strange story for me. As I liked the idea of it, the setting and the wide range of characters, particularly some of the more memorable and quirky ones. But, I felt like I was missing something and I don't know whether that was because this is book four in a series I've not read before. Or it's simply because of the way this story was written, and although I found it easy enough to get into and to stay engaged. I did feel like everything between main characters Eden and Shane happ

This just wasn't a story for me. It was impossible for me to get into the story, and I wasn't really a fan of either main character. First up is Eden's voice, or lack there of I suppose. I've heard of kids refusing to talk when something traumatic happens, but an adult falling down the stairs and losing her voice? Maybe I missed something, but it doesn't make sense to me. The first person she runs into is her ex Shane. He knows that he should tell her that he's pretty much taking away the main t ...more

She comes back home to get her life back together again, and then she re connects with Shane. She always had feelings for him, but after her marriage failure she doesn't always trust herself.

This story is steamy!. If you love a hot and sexy cowboy story with well developed characters and a plot that keeps you turni

This was a difficult book for me to read and review. I even put it aside and tried to come back to it to see if the story would capture my attention. Unfortunately, that didn't help. The heroine I found hard to like. The hero was somewhat better. I finished it, but it was one of those that took forever. It may be just a story that was not my cup of tea. I would definitely read another book by this author to see if it was just this particular book.

I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoy reading second chance romance books and I’m always looking for new authors. I find that NetGalley is the perfect place to try out new books by new authors- but you can’t always know how good the book is going to be since you are one of the first reviewers.

I normally love the books I request, but this one I didn’t “love” as much as I thought I would. It was an ok story that took a lot of twists and

A thrilling, sexy, fun and engaging adventure filled with lots of passion. Highly entertaining second chance romance that was both emotionally thrilling and sweetly heartwarming. Hooked from beginning to end and loved every exciting moment.

The romantic chemistry between the characters was okay, however the story line was tired. I ended up having several, "what the heck?" moments throughout with how odd the plot was. It also became very redundant towards the end. I'm a huge fan of cowboy romance novels, but this just wasn't it. ...more

Just when Eden had lost it all she was able to realize life had so much to offer. Leaving her small town behind to gain fame she found everything she was looking for and the happiness that had always seemed out of her reach.

You all know that me being me, I like me a good romance, ESPECIALLY if their are cowboys involved....but this, right from the get go it jumped right in. No build up, jumpy, and repetitive in the plot. Maybe it was just the writing style I couldn't do, but damn...I couldn't finish it. Maybe 80 pages till the end and more and more problems come up? With the way its written you CAN'T have only 80 pages without it being some merical that'll just bring it right back around! 2, because
