BUCKLING DOWN by Moira Keith

Levi McKenna heads to Las Vegas with one simple goal: win the rodeo and cement his place in rodeo history. Then Lady Luck throws a wild card into the deck—Sydney Hart. Time and distance haven’t dulled the sharp edge of their attraction, but thanks to a long-ago promise, she will always be the forbidden fruit dangling just out of reach.

Recommends it for: Fans of hot anthologies featuring a cowboy/rancher theme
This book contains three hot short stories, all with a cowboy/rancher theme. All three are pretty decent short reads, but I bought this book for the Lorelei James story, and I'm happy to say it didn't disappoint. And even though it was the only story that featured a married couple (okay, they were separated), it was by far the hottest of the three.

First up was Buckling Down by Moira Keith, the story of a rodeo cowboy/Hollywood actor with a womanizer reputation. It's a childhood-friends-to-lovers

3 -4 stars – Contemporary/Western Erotic Romance

Buckling Down by Moira Keith is just..."okay". The story was fairly brief with a somewhat choppy pace, the heat factor was much milder than I thought (and hoped) it would be with only one very short sex scene, and the writing seemed a bit amateurish. It just didn't seem like it fit within an erotic anthology, especially one that features an author as strong as Lorelei James. 2 stars.

Recommended to jenjn79 by: continuation of a series
I bought this anthology for Lorelei James's "Rough Riders" novella since I absolutely love that series. James didn't disappoint, and the other two novellas were too bad either.

Series Note:
LJ's novella, "Strong, Silent Type," is part of her "Rough Riders" series...it's sort of a 'between the numbers' addition and can be read as a standalone. I'm not sure if the other two novellas have any series connections.

The Stories
Moira Keith's "Buckling Down" is cute. Levi McKenna intends to leave the rodeo world on a high note and that means Las Vegas. He doesn't count on running into his best friend's sister, Sydney Hart. He's loved her forever but had promised Dusty he wouldn't date her. Then. It's a tale of honor and maturity. Up against a big brother's protective nature. More importantly, it's about believing in yourself and going f

Anthology. Better than average anthology. I liked all 3 stories. If you like western romances with sexual situations, you'll enjoy this anthology.

Buckling Down by Moira Keith. Levi is participating in his last rodeo in Las Vegas. When he goes out with a bunch of competitors, he sees his old friend Dusty and Dusty's sister Sydney. He's always had a thing for Sydney and now wants to see if he can make a go of it. Enjoyed the story. ***1/2

Totally loved this book. With four different stories with each having a Happy Ever After in the stories it was worth reading.

The Good:
Strong Silent Type by Lorelei James
Loved it from beginning to end, despite the rather selfish heroine who was too blind to see what was right in front of her eyes, and the disastrous marital communication skills.

The Bad:
The Real Deal by Niki Green
I kept wondering just who exactly was the hero of this story and if the story actually had a purpose, beside working as introduction into a spawning series. The hero and heroine don't meet until almost the middle of the book, the two younger br

LJAMES, Rough Riders story: Quinn and Libby are the first and longest married couple in the McKay/West.
We've met Libby and Quinn previously at a McKay party where Libby and Quinn end up having a all out fight.
This book jumps straight into the story were Quinn and Libby are separated but still living in the area (Quinn has a trailer near house).
Quinn goes out to local bar and finds his wife dirty dancing with a hot cowboy.
After Ben (Quinn brother) gives him some home trusts and opens Quinn's

Quinn and Libby McKay are on the brink of divorce, only if they don't find a way to save their marriage.
Quinn pulls out all the stops to make Libby happy and bring her the ultimate pleasure, and to make up for all he did wrong in their marriage.
Libby finally figured out what she did wrong and she tries to make it up to Quinn.
They finally just concentrate on each other and their marriage, and just enjoy it.

I liked this short novella. A nice short read.

Shelves: western, hot
I didn't like Moira Keith (the story was boring and slow, and I couldn't connect with the characters at all) and tremendously liked the other two, especially Lorelei James'...her "Strong, Silent Type" is so heartbreakingly sweet, the sex so hot and the ending so great- I just wished it was longer! Nikki Green was interesting- I guess I'll try more of her stuff! All in all: a great read!

I picked this up from Half Price Books, and feel I paid for half a book. I loved the Lorelei James Rough Riders novella, the rest was just OK.
