Samantha Cross can't believe the latest problem her brother has dumped in her lap, she has two men after her wanting money and he tried to steal a bull from his bosses and is in jail. Deciding to try and plea his case, Samantha heads to the Dakota Ranch to ask owners Jackson and Shayne Montgomery to drop the charges.

Jackson is used to beautiful women showing up at the ranch looking for a good time, but is surprised when the one before him shuts him down and asks to speak to his brother. Shayne h

Leah Brooke was a new author for me when I read this. I loved this story! She works the characters well, weaves a good story, and you feel connected. It begins a bit fast, but was necessary to the story. Loved Shayne the best, sweet big guy !! Samantha was a stand up, strong woman trying to clean up messes her brother made. When she's threatened, Jackson and Shayne help her out. She has feelings for them right away, and she begins the

I love this story! As the description says, Sam ends up working for Shayne and Jackson due to some problems with her brother. She's attracted to both of them from the start. Jackson is easy going and very handsome. Shayne isn't handsome and is very large (6' 8" and big all over) but has a raw masculinity that is extremely attractive. Shayne's convinced himself that he is too rough and will hurt women in bed (believing a lie propagated by some evil hussies that didn't like that Shayne saw through ...more
I am done trying this author. The quality of the writing is poor and the plotting is beyond weak. The sex scenes are bland and the instant love, one week, is ludicrous. Add to that stereotypical and wrong ranch scenes and a poorly motivated bad guy and it was just a hot mess.

Loved it!

This was a short read. But it has every in it that makes a good book. I can't wait to read the next book.

3.5 Stars

The build up took longer than usual and I was pretty impatient about it. I felt like the author stretched it out. There were conflicts that popped out of nowhere and characters that seemed to disappear.

It was hot and sexy as all the books I have read from Leah Brooke are. Although this one is better than the first in the series, I still like the Desire series better. I am a bit disappointed since I saw the average rating for this series was higher, maybe it gets better in the other book

No. This book is absolute fail. After having almost been raped, a woman would *not* want to jump another man's bones IN THE SAME DAY! No matter how much she'd love that man. Much less two men. Rape and almost rape is a trauma. It's not sexy. And as far away from turn-on as you can get.

Plot-wise this book was more solid than the first one in the series, but with the almost rape fail, it left me cold and angry with the author. There should be a rape warning on this book.

i love this book, i really like that the brothers are totally different Jackson is flirty, sexy and very romantic but Shayne is dark hurt from rumours and very insecure. Sam is a carer and sorts her brother Pete's problems out, this is how Sam came to Dakota ranch and started to work for the brothers. this book moves fast but you don't feel rush and has a great ending with really sweet HEA.

Find the oven mits you are going to need them. The Montgomery Boys are HOT and oh so willing to please their lady. While this is a shorter story it does pack a lot of stuff into a few pages. The thing I love most about this story is the way Samantha finally shows Shayne that he isn't going to hurt her. Oh to be the filling in a Montgomery Brothers sandwich.

Much better than the first book in this series, this book is hot and unbelievably sexy. Shayne is huge, rough and gruff just how we like them and Jackson has enough charm to keep anyone happy. The story is an alright read but the chemistry between Samantha and her men is what really keeps the book going.
Dakota Ranch Crude by Leah Brooke

This was a much better story than the first book in this series and a bit longer at 6 chapters. I liked Shayne, Mr. Silent and Tall all 6 foot 8 inches of him…gulp! Jackson is the rascal and Mr. Handsome. Samantha is the ‘little bit’ that brings it all together nicely.

Favorite line…

Interesting story and quite enjoyable. Even in this shorter format, Brooke did a good job of revealing the personalities of the three main characters. I quickly warmed to Samantha (feisty) and Shayne (big and loveable) but Jackson (playboy) took a little longer. Nice bit of suspense too. Overall a quick but entertaining story.

If you can move past how quickly they fall in love, it is a good story. Damsel in distress with a brother who takes advantage, two cowboys, one who thinks he is too rough for her and throw in a couple of different bad guys that are after her because of other people.....Some drama, some hot sex and a happy ever after

I enjoyed this except that it's far too short. I'd have liked to have seen a longer novel with more character development. I did like the male 'heroes' though and thought Shayne an interesting character. Also liked the heroine who was quite able to stand up for herself. The Desire series are better but these are worth a look.

Nice and fun to read, loving this series so far. If you're looking for an intense read filled with drama, suspense and a drawn out romance between the main characters, you might not like this book much. But for those days when you just want to read something sweet and naughty, this book is perfect.

I enjoyed this one very much. However I think the book could have been made longer as the story felt a bit rushed to the end
