it was ok

This one was just ok. I did have some issues with it that really detracted from what I think of it. Early on the hero is described as not being into women like all the other men on the ranch, yet latter the heroine walks in on the hero having sex with a random woman. Granted she had just married someone else, so there was no cheating going on, but it still seemed wrong to me. I also didn't like how near the end the hero wouldn't listen to what the heroine was saying and ended up slapping her, making her fly back against a wall, no excuse for that. I never did warm up to him.

I also had a different issue with a secondary character when he got mad that one of the women wouldn't sleep with him. She was a lady, not a common whore. I did love that she called him on it, even going so far as to ask if that was what he wanted, her to be a whore.

Not one of the better ones.
