really liked it

What a fun read this is! I loved it. When a disgruntled and very drunk jilted bride disrupts her now ex fiance's wedding reception, it's up to the brides brother Ryder to toss her over his broad shoulder and haul her out of there before she can do any more damage. Dressed in her wedding gown, and completely toasted she comes up with a plan to get even with her ex, while helping Ryder out as well. All they have to do is get married. Ryder isn't too sure until she makes an offer he can't turn down. His ranch is mid recovery from a tornado, money is tight which has set his dream of opening an equine therapy school in the barn he lost. With the money from Monica or Rapunzel as he calls her, he can get his barn repair, pay a few bills and lessen his stress. Only problem is that her slimy ex, who is now married to Ryder's sister took off with her 50k and she's broke. She's from Chicago and a photographer. She's got no way to pay Ryder, so Ryder pretty much takes it out of her hide. He's got no patience for a city girl, she's got no clothes, no shoes nothing. He's got her mucking stalls and pretty much like the manure she's cleaning up. Every time she tries to leave he snags her back.
He hasn't told anyone they're married and when his mother catches wind, she insists they send them on a honeymoon. No coincidence they end up where her ex and his sister are, because Monica has a plan to get into his laptop and get proof he took her money. What she finds is so much more. By then Ryder realizes she's not lying about the money and when they're called home due to an emergency they leave together. These two have finally warmed up to each other. Took them long enough. There's so burn and slow burn.... when Ryder hits the igniter switch there isn't much to stop the two of them. It was great watching Monica warming up to ranch life and Ryder. Monica runs the whole gamut of emotions being embraced by not only his family but the whole town even though she tried hard to alienate them a little. She figures that after she gives Ryder his money he won't want her there. The story really takes off just past the half way point and it doesn't stop until the last page.
I had a little trouble with Ryder at first, but Monica was a hoot, even in her worst moments. There are some good laughs couched into the storyline and these two really are a fairy tale come to life.
Loved it. Loved Rumpy! Read the book! Heidi tells a great story...

Heidi Thanks so much for the great review, Ayekah! I'm so glad you enjoyed Monica & Ryder's story, & you're the first one to mention Rumpy. I love him, too! :D
