Never challenge a cowboy in the courtroom...
Surveying the proposed site for a high-end golf course should have been a breeze for spunky Landscape Architect Sophie Smith. But when this born-and-bred city girl is suddenly -- and quite literally -- swept off her feet by a sexy cowboy on horseback, she realizes that country life has some serious (and some seriously steamy!) possibilities. That is, until she finds out exactly who her smokin’-hot wrangler really is.
Cowboy and Tribal lawyer Jake Lodge is desperately trying to block the development. And if that means playing hardball -- and being every inch the shark lawyer -- so be it. But Sophie is a distraction he didn’t expect. A distraction that makes his blood burn.
Two different worlds. Two opposing sides. And when they finally give into the exquisite temptation, the consequences will shake the foundations of both of their lives...
Alright, first off I’d like to point out that if you go to the Goodreads.com link — you will find that they have Jake listed at “Jack” — Not cool, Goodreads. Not cool. You scared the bejeesus out of me thinking that I’d picked another book with the hero named “Jack” and not realized it.
His name is Jake. Not Jack. Phew.
Now that that’s been said — Good book! And suitably titled, as Sophie does, at one point, ask Jake, “Do you ever notice how often you have me up against the wall?”
I was more drawn in by this book than I thought I would be. What originally drew me to it was the Native American themes within it — wanting to stick to tradition and keep what land they have. I enjoyed the fact that it was pointed out to Sophie several times that “the land doesn’t want the golf course here.” I appreciate that. I’m a mutt of massive proportions when it comes to my heritage but I am part Native American… and I’m just a general nature lover. So that was awesome.
The love story between Jake and Sophie grows, though the initial attraction is immediately seen (as is usual in these stories). There are hurdles, there are consequences and there are straight-laced, scary, backwoods Americans who give “close-minded” and “militia” a new meaning… They freaked me out, and I was only reading the book.
In summation, a very well-written book, with intriguing characters and plot points. A four out of five because it’s a good read — an easy one, and a good one. And hey — every girl loves being backed into a wall because the guy just can’t wait to get to the bed.
