I fell in love with her the second she pointed that rifle at my head.

When she threatened to put a bullet between my eyes, I knew I had to have her. She reminds me of one of those animated princesses, with white-blond hair to her waist, curves that make it hard to walk straight and ice-blue eyes that told me…I’d found the one.

I never thought much about why I kn

Darlene I read WAY to many books
This is a cute little steamy novella that was okay to me. :)

Mathias has always been a work work work type of guy has no time for anything also perfect boyfriend alpha in my eyes, coming down into town few times he sees some random guy asking questions about someone and when he sees the picture he's found his true love. He just doesn't know where she is until he bumps into her dodging one of the flirts in town. As for Astrid shes sorta running away? All she knows is that her step-father is an as

A sweet and really really hot story with DV(freaking love that 😍 😍😍). Mathias was so sweet and hot the perfect mix. He fell head over heels for Astrid and wouldn't let go from day 1. This story had sweetness, action and steamy scenes. Totally safe with a sweet HEA. I really loved the epilogues👍👍 A must read story if you like hot and possessive mountain men that wait for their one and only.❤ ...more

It was love at first sight for me when it came to the cover on this book. Serious swoon moment may have occured the first time I saw it, and everytime after.

Mathias was idea book boyfriend material for me: reclusive mountain man who had secret talents, was secretly well off and oh yeah that gorgeous house he built. Bonus points for being growly, alpha and possessive.

The fact that Mathias and Astrid had a bit of an older man/younger woman thing going...yup another favorite of mine, so of course

Off the charts animal chemistry! Mathias takes one look at Astrids picture and he is done for, insta love at its finest! When he sees her at the local bar and she’s in trouble he takes no time at all to take care of her, the attraction is too much for Astrid and she bolts... determined to find her he’s comes face to face with the barrel of her gun, how will this mountain of a virgin man tame his one and only... well his animal is coming out fierce and ready...

Nothing is better than Dani's sweet virgin Alpha insta-loves and Straight Cut is just that.
Mathis is the sexy and fierce mountain man who has know idea what fate has in-store for him. Astrid is the innocence that fate drops at his feet.
Animals wait for their one mate... Hold on tight because the animal is about to be released.

Straight Cut has it all. A little intrigue, a little hint of a dangerous past, a sweet and sassy heroine, and a growly as all heck hero all wrapped up in a satisfying book.

Ms Wyatt manages to make two virgins sexy as all heck and boy, for a virgin, Mathias sure knows what he's doing. And as Mathias said: "Who knew I could be such a filthy talker? Virgin, smirgin." I liked Mathias from the start. He doesn't care what people think of him and he goes his own way. He keeps to himself but has a small

I really loved this story. Its like a cross between Jessa Kane and Alexa Riley. My two favorite authors. Mathias is a virgin who is the perfect mix of sweet and OTT alpha and I wish the rest of the men in this series was like him. He was proud of the fact he was a virgin and waited for Astrid. And one of my pet peeves in DV stories is when the hero doesn't mention the fact he is a virgin or says like one line stating his is. Not this one, no sir not this book and I am here for it!

Absolutely loved this one!!! Dani knows just how I like my men Huge, Growly, Alpha AF, Possessive and Obsessive and Mathias has all of those qualities. Mathias normally keeps to himself, but on his latest trip to town he's shown a picture of his future, and with one look he knows the Beauty in the picture was meant for him. Astrid is on her own, having lost her mother and running from her horrible step-father she has decided to get back to her roots and heads out to the great outdoors until she ...more
🔥Oh my! So hot!🔥
Another great story by Ms. Wyatt.
I have to say, I am sooo glad this was dual virgin. I loved how, even though he was in his 30's, he saved himself for his one. Realistic? Maybe not. But do we really read for the reality of it? Not this girl. Heck, if that was the case, who would read about wolf and bear shifters or aliens coming to impregnate earthlings...c'mon.
Anyway, back to this book. I, for one, immensely enjoyed watching them discover each other, having been with no one el
I loved this story of Mathias, a huge, growly, scowly mountain man and Astrid, a capable, smart, girl on the run; and not just because they were both virgins. Although Astrid was hiding from her stepfather, she was no damsel in distress (I REALLY would have liked to see her use the crossbow...just sayin), even if Mathias was determined to be her knight protector.

As usual, the chemistry was off the charts, and the hero was uber alpha while still being sweet. I tend to prefer my heroines to not be

Astrid is running away from her stepfather after losing her mother recently. She goes where she knows she can regroup and think about what to do with her life, the only place where she could be herself. Mathias is a reclusive artist/mountain man and he has remained celibate until he found the one. All it took was one look and they were vowed to be it for each other. Their story is fast paced, with incredible chemistry that will melt your heart and kindle. This is the story of true love and as Da ...more

STRAIGHT CUT is the 4th standalone book under the Men In The Woods Series . Astrid came running to the woods to escape his stepdad. When she saw Mathias , she was astonished at his sheer size. On the other hand, he knew that Astrid was meant to be his from the moment he saw her photo and that he would protect her at all costs.

This book was explosive! Double vigins , with opposite personalities but they were perfect for each other . I loved Mathias! He was a dominant who had a sweet tooth and ot

I received this book in advance for a voluntary honest review. Gotta love an alpha woodsman who has impressive Mathias never thought about having a woman in his life, ever. He may be big and burly, but he’s never slept with a woman. Astrid is on the run from her stepfather and camping in the woods. When Mathias sees Astrid’s photo his whole world changes. Finding her in the woods, he saves her from a bear and brings her to his cabin. The sparks that fly between these two could ...more

Ms. Dani did a fantastic job with this book! I fell in love with Mathis and Astrid. Mathis is completely alpha AF, who loves with his whole heart and Astrid is a sassy, bad to the bone female who is lost but luckily she was found! I loved these two chemistry and the banter between was hilarious! I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a great insta-love, DV, slightly different ending, and great HEA!

I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Wow! I love all of Dani Wyatt’s books but this one blows it of the park. Dual virgin, strong heroine and possessive AF mountain man. Mathias saw Astrid‘s picture while in town one day and become obsessed. Actually is there a level about obsessed? Because Mathias was it. Once he finds Astrid who is camping by herself trying to escape some circumstances she almost shoots him and he falls more in love. Astrid was such a strong heroine. These two together were HOT and steamy. Just wow. Read this boo ...more

Astrid was a young woman on the run from her Stepfather. He thought what her mother left her was his and would do what it took to get it. She never realized that her actions would change her life. But would it be for her good or evil.
Mathias was all man. He had also been waiting for his forever. He just never thought he would meet her the way he did. She basically knocked him for a loop. She was everything he could ever have dreamed of.
Will these two get their Happily ever after or will someon

Dani writes the best insta-love there is. A DV story at that. hubba hubba

Mathias is kind of a loaner, living in the cabin he built, building furniture and limiting his social interaction. He's just waiting to find his other half. Has he found it in Astrid? The beautiful stranger who lost her mother just 42 days ago. Her mother's passing left her with her stepfather, a man who changes his behavior leading Astrid to run away and her stepfather desperate to find her. Will Mathias save her? Will she

Loved it

Mathias and Astrid story is beyond amazing. They both have never been with anyone. Now to some that may be surprising given this day and time. I loved that aspect. Like some people just won't be satisfied if its not the only person who they chose to spend the rest of their lives with. That is what I loved. As rugged as Mathias was and is. It was damn sexy. Astrid did remind me of Elsa from frozen. A few twists and turns plus a couple shady characters mixed into the book. All and all it w

Amazing story.

This is a wonderful story with excellent characters. Mathias has never been interested in being with a woman, just to say he did it and he feels like he may never find one he wants to be with. That is until he sees Astrid's picture and he has this all consuming feeling that he needs to find her and make her his. This is a sexy, steamy, double virgin story that will have you all hot and bothered by the end. Great read and I highly recommend it!

The is the fourth book in the series but the first for me. I didn’t need to read the others first but I have started the series from the beginning because I like it so much! I’m a big fan of the alpha-mountain man type genre and this was exactly that! Very sexy and quick read! 🔥I liked both characters and enjoyed their story and HEA.
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC for an honest review!

Dani did not disappoint with Straight Cut, I was captivated from the very beginning of this couple's story. I felt soul deep reading the stepfathers actions, I wanted to hug Astrid and know she was ok.

What do you get when you cross an older, dirty talking, mountain man virgin hero and a younger woman in hiding who's not afraid to shoot a gun? You get Dani Wyatt's latest release, Straight Cut! Oh my, oh my! If you weren't a fan of Dani before now, you certainly will after reading this!
The book is safe with dual virgins. It is standalone, but there are 3 prior books featuring different couples.

I love Ms. Wyatt's writing - and this book did not disappoint. This book brings us Mathias and Astrid. This is a unique storyline as both of the characters are virgins and have been waiting for the right person. They have a unique chemistry, and they both know, without a doubt that they are soulmates. This is a great read and I highly recommend it. ...more

Mathias and Astrid practically melted my Kindle! This virgin lumber-hunk knows what he wants and will move mountains to make Astrid his forever. Streamy read with a HEA! I especially loved the epilogues. Grab this book and find out what ‘shiver my timbers’ is really all about!
High praises for another home run by Dani Wyatt!

Nothing beats these men of the woods

Mathias and Astrid's story was kind of different from the other men of the woods stories. The way they dealt with their virginity was so hot and at the same time sweet. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Since I was a little girl, I’ve made up stories. I would lay in my bed at night and before I knew what a trope was, I would make up these trope filled stories. Boy sees girl, boys falls for girl, boy saves girl….happily ever after. As I got older, the stories turned steamier and more intricate, but the basics never changed.

Now, my books are still full of romance but the naughty bits are naughtier,
