Publisher's Summary

Megan Harrison is the owner of Kinky Spurs. She’s mortgaged up to her eyeballs and works long days and nights, but she’s living life on her terms, not on her wealthy father’s. She’s done being in the cattle rancher’s shadow. She’s got it all figured out, except for the part that involves Nash Blackshaw. He’s a sexy as hell cowboy whose smile can easily charm her out of her tight jeans. The only problem is - their fathers were business rivals, and Megan and Nash have been taught to hate each other since birth. 

Nash Blackshaw, a retired professional bull rider, has responsibilities on top of responsibilities. With his PBR career over due to back injury, and his focus narrowed on heading up the Blackshaw Cattle Company’s Guest Ranch, he shouldn’t have time to think about all the ways he wants Megan. But it’s all he thinks of around the sassy and sweet woman. She might be forbidden to him, but Nash wants to take her for a hard, kinky ride. 

But small towns have a way of spreading gossip like wildfire, and not everyone is happy about their relationship. Especially when Megan drops a bombshell on Nash after one heated night between them. As much as Megan and Nash want to forget the old feud between their fathers and lose each other in explosive passion, they can’t escape reality. They are meant to be enemies, and Nash’s sizzling, dominant touch might not be enough to keep them together.

3 STARS

Enjoyable and low angst romance. There is a rivalry between the families but the heroine never wanted any part of it. It was a bit repetitive with the feud and I didn't like that the heroine never had the H's back when it came to her dad and the feud. Once it came to light who was sabotaging it was kind of glossed over. After everything I wanted there to be bigger consequences. Overall though it was a sweet and steamy romance. Narration was great! Easy to follow between all the characters.

Hard Riding Cowboy

I was happy to see Nash and Megan get together, but I felt this story lacked a lot. It centered around Megan not liking the feud between the families and she continues to hold that over Nash. Megan uses it as an ultimatum to their relationship which I thought was a very selfish thing to do. She continues to stand up for her father even though she claims to know what a ruthless man he is and that she will not enter into any kind of business with him yet she never gives Nash any kind of benefit or encouragement, never taking his side ever or even hearing him out. Megan even admits that she knows her father has done something but refuses to acknowledge it and forces Nash to just ignore it even though it could mean his livelihood. I found Megan to be a spoiled and selfish person. The whole story revolved around her feelings and only one time did she acknowledge that Nash was giving up everything for her. The feud has lasted two generations and her father is the one continuing to hurt Nash and his family but Megan expects everyone to get along and for Nash to just forgive and forget when the problems could cost him and his family everything. Nash is a good man who needs Megan’s love and through her he has found purpose. At times they are good together, but I found Megan to self-centered she claimed to be doing this for her and Nash and their future, yet she never takes any steps herself. Every step that she takes is a step away from Nash. Making me feel sorry for Nash he loves her so much that it hurts yet her love does not seem to go that deep. Their relationship seems to be a lot more one sided than the other two brothers in this series and I enjoyed it less. Narrator Chloe Ryan does a nice job of bringing these characters to life and keeping the narrative flowing, keeping me engaged throughout the story. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

sexy cowboy

Nash and Meghan had a love/hate relationship for a long time. One fateful evening both their lives changed. Nash is outspoken, independent, hardheaded just like her father. Both their fathers were enemies and had an ongoing feud. All Meghan wants to do is have the bickering stop. Nash's ranch is still having problems, He has his suspensions who's behind it. If he confronts Clint, he may lose Meghan. Chloe Ryan narration is very good. I enjoyed listening to this story. 🎧audiobookobbsessionreview🎧 .

not a megan fan

I found megan to be immature, selfish , and blind to all the hate and evil that was her dad. you can be successful without being heartless . sge never wanted to compromise until she saw that Nash was giving away his whole life and world fir her greedy buttt. why does it take a house to fall on the wicked witch for her to wake up and act human??? I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job.

Stand alone story

I've listened to the second and now third books in this series, but have not listened to the first book. I think you could easily enjoy this one without listening to either of the others. I was impressed with how much I liked the story. It was complex without being overly dramatic. Chloe Ryan as a narrator did a great job reading the story as written, but there were a couple missed opportunities to make it really fantastic and bring it to life more (for example, talking through a coughing attack was just talking). It was really good and consistent, just not embellished. I wish I could rate the narration a 4.5, but since I can't I rounded up. #AudiobookObsession

I love these brothers!

Stacey Kennedy's third book in her Kinky Spurs series is just as good as the first! Featuring a different Blackshaw brother in each, we get the story of Nash. He is finding his new normal after a career ending injury and just has not found his new niche. But his love interest of Meghan Harrison is still burning strong and now years after wanting to be with her is going for it. Meghan has always been off limits, due to a family feud, but these two just cannot stay away from each other any longer. Circumstances as they are though, Meghan finds it increasingly difficult to deal with the animosity. Will these two find a way to beat the odds and mend the families? Much like the Hatfield and McCoys, it's a fun western listen without the rifles! Meghan is a little naive at times, thinking years of anger can be dissipated in a conversation, but she does find ways to get her point across. Nash is stubborn, but he realizes what is important. And who better to steer him into a career path than his mom! The family is tight knit, we get glimpses of our favorite characters and once again the dog is crashing the table! It's a steamy, love filled story . Chloe Ryan brings the story to life with her fantastic narration. I enjoy her voice. She has voices that fit each character and she fills the conversations with gentle nuances bringing all the emotions to the top. I loved her performance.

Book 3 standalone

Each book is about a different brother so they can be read as a standalone. I haven’t read the 1st book yet but I have enjoyed 2 & 3. Nash gets hurt bull riding and has to come up with a new reason for life. Old family feuds get in the way. Narration is great. I recommend this book. 🎧Audiobook Obsession

Fantastic Story & Narration🎧 A Captivating🔥Romance

Stacey Kennedy delivers another amazing “Kinky Spurs” novel. I am loving this series and it’s characters. Each book featured a different Blackshaw brother, I recommend the entire series and enjoying the books the books in order, the back story about their family ranch continues in each book. This is Nash and Megan’s story, a Romeo and Juliet type love story without a tragic ending. Megan is Clint Harrison’s daughter, the Harrison’s and Blackshaw’s have history, they are rivals and there was bad blood between Clint and Nash’s late father. Megan and Clint were always drawn to each other, but never acted because it would be too complicated, that did not stop them from going at each other verbally. Then they finally gave in to their desires for a wonderfully hot time together. I adored these two characters, their complexity, their strength and determination. Sure Nash has his issues dealing with a career ending injury feeling like a failure of sorts. Leave it to his Mom to point out what he would be great at and help send him in the right direction. Megan wants to remain strong and independent, not wanting to rely on her father’s wealth for anything. She also wants peace, no more family feud, but that may be asking a lot after several incidents of sabotage at the Blackshaw ranch. I loved how everything plays out in this book, there is never a dull moment with plenty of drama, angst, a nice surprise, heartfelt moments and some hot romance. Stacey Kennedy, thank you for another great story. Chloe Ryan is a talented narrator and voice artist. She was perfectly casted to portray these characters and bring them to life. She does a great job covering both male and female characters, changes roles flawlessly without missing a beat. She sets the perfect tone for the story, adds a slight dramatic flair which enhances an already great story another level. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another fabulous listen🎧
