* I received this ARC free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
In the wilds of Oklahoma, three sisters have a date with destiny…
Bound: When Valerie left for the big city, she kissed her foreman husband goodbye-along with the best sex she ever had. Now, seeing him brings back sizzling memories.
Branded: Watching Gage wrangle untamed horses leaves Brea hot and bothered. But can she live out her fantasy with a man who may ask for more than she’s willing to give?
Brazen: Ranch hand Walker Morgan can’t afford to get too close to his new boss, Jolene, no matter how she tempts him. But Jolene’s prepared to take the first step.
3 Sisters are brought together by one ranch, the Bar M in which they all have equal ownership of. Valerie ran away from the ranch and her husband to become a Doctor. Brea ran away to Tulsa where she is a freelance programmer/analyst. Jolene has been running the ranch the past few years.
Valerie has been running from love since their parents were killed in a car accident when they were teenagers. Every time she gets too close to someone or something she gets scared and leaves. Mason hopes to change her mind and show her why they belong together. Circumstances pull at her heart while she is home on the ranch and this time she might just stop running.
Brea is more comfortable hiding behind her books and baggie clothes. She lacks self confidence and is inexperienced when it comes to men. She loves reading steamy romances and dreaming they are about her. She can’t believe that the sexy ranch hand, Gage is interested in her. She decides for once to take a chance on what she wants and go for it.
Jolene knows what she wants and she goes after it. She has been running the Bar M ranch and has turned it into a successful cattle business. She now has set her sights on Walker but he refuses to get involved with his “boss”. Walker has a secret that he is worried will affect Jolene and the Bar M ranch. She is worried that he sees her as one of the guys until things start to heat up. Who will win this battle of wills between them?
I loved all three of these stories. Each of the heroines had some quality that I could relate to in my life. Valerie was the one that took care of her sisters when their parents died, Brea isn’t very confident in herself or appearance and would rather hide behind her books and Jolene was the one left at the ranch to take care of it when they both left. I take care of everyone in my family, hide behind my books and am left to clean up any mess there might be.
Jaci Burton gives you real working cowboys and the women they love. The men are rugged, tough and not afraid of hard work. They love just as hard as they work. They are the real deal not some cheap imitation.
The stories have plenty of sizzling sex in some very unique places, which made it very entertaining. All three of the stories are separate reads but I like the fact that they all flow together and you get to find out how things are going for the others as the book progresses.
