Vicki Hansol made different choices than her less-than-reputable mom and sister, yet her fiery temper has left her branded with the same town-bad-girl label. When she desperately needs a change of scenery, her get-out-of-town-free ticket arrives - and requires that she face down one of her deepest fears.
Easygoing Joel Coleman has nothing to complain about, but he's never really done anything to brag about either. The youngest member of the Six Pack Ranch is looking to make some changes in his life that include stepping out from under his twin brother's shadow.
So when the bold beauty with the smart mouth approaches him with a proposition, Joel is intrigued. Her request for him to teach her to ride soon takes on a whole new meaning. All that passion in his arms, his bed, in the barn . . . hell, anywhere he can get it? Bring it on.
But tangling the sheets leads to unanticipated complications, and by the time the dust settles, everything family means is going to be challenged.

"Arend sure knows how to corral [listeners'] attention and lasso them in without a hitch. Book five of the Six Pack Ranch series is raunchy and dirty like a super-sexy, sweaty cowboy." (RT Book Reviews)
Love the Six Pack before and this was no different. Fun to finally get to know Joel and happy to see him grow up and turn out to be a real Coleman to be proud of.
Vicki has a sad yet interesting story and the two of them together make a great pair. I had no trouble visualizing them and loved what I saw! They overcame some important obstacles and Joel was a true knight in shining armor.
The bad guys were well written. Instead of going for the melodramatic flair, Vivian wrote them much closer to the 'villains' we often deal with in our daily life, something I really commend her for doing.
In the end, did true love conquer all for Joel and Vicky or did they accomplish their goals and go their separate ways? Only the reader will know. *grin*
These are hot, sexually explicit books that leave this Cowgirl smiling.
Since I happened to enjoy this book via Audible as a recorded performance, it's only fair I comment on that as well. As for Ms. Sokolov as the narrator, overall she really did a terrific job. Her diction was clear and her voices made the characters clearly individual. I had a problem with the voice she used for Joel, especially in the beginning as it made him sound slow and unintelligent when he is anything but. As time passed I was able to overlook it more as I focused on the story itself. I would certainly listen to another book narrated by her in the future.
I am a wife, mother, friend, teacher, technology coordinator, and avid reader of both audio and print books.
I love that everyone is not perfect. I love that the mentoring of the previous generations impacted the next generation positively!
