After her own engagement goes to hell, workaholic Jessica Talbot dreads her friend's bachelorette party at a dude ranch in Nowheresville, Texas. But the outlook for the weekend brightens when Deacon Dumen picks her up at the airport. The sexy cowboy awakens every dormant sexual fantasy with nothing more than a friendly smile and a handshake.
Ex-Air Force Pararescueman Deke Dumen doesn't know what to make of the sexy yet reserved brunette who breaks through the walls he built after an injury ended his career and a divorce soured him on relationships. As a guest at his family's ranch Jessie is off limits, but the Dom in him rebels at the restriction, even as he realizes his penchant for control in the bedroom would likely scare the holy hell out of her.
When Jessie shocks Deke by asking for exactly what he's been craving, he's ready to break the rules and introduce her to his own brand of dominance. Her willing surrender rocks them both to the core. But once the weekend's over, they must decide if it was just a wild fling or the start of something more.

The reader Ann Hart. I was so into this book, I forgot I was at work.
The shy Jessie and how she opened up to he and enjoyed herself with Deke.
Her voice keep me wanting to keep listening and really get into the story
I enjoyed this book a lot. It didn't make me laugh or cry, but it also made me want to look into this world of BDSM.
I hope that Callie Croix is going to write the other brothers stories, and PLEASE let Ann Hart read each and everyone of them. I will wait for them.
Something just didn't work for me. By the halfway point, I was ready to be finished. As oppose to looking forward to the story, I saw it as a task to complete b/c I bought it and needed to know whether I wanted to buy anymore by this author. Altogether it was not bad; it was just underwhelming, very mediocre. The narrator was ok, but she had poor pronounciation when saying some words. And that really turns me off. And, though I believe in love--as in desire--at first sight. Falling in love over a weekend, especially after essentially spending less than 48 hours together and due to good sex, was just too much of a stretch for me. And ther reason for meeting just fell away from the story with no outcome even addressed. That just makes for a bad story, though it was just a side aspect. But it made the story seem even less realistic. The sex telling was okay and had some hotness, though I wouldn't put it at erotic level. But some people may be turned off by the raw or earthy sexual language, though it was seldom enough. I love it, so I can't really speak to that. Overall, I won't be seeking anymore by this author but neither do I wish I didn't buy this story.
