Publisher's Summary

Kane Bishop’s content with living and working on the ranch, but something is missing—a family of his own. After his twin brother married the woman he once loved, Kane has moved on and is now focusing on new things. When his best friend’s little sister reenters his life, the attraction is undeniable, but the timing is all wrong.

He should keep his distance and not tempt fate, but he can’t get her out of his head.

Ivy’s had a secret crush on Kane for as long as she can remember. Although she’s an introverted bookworm who hasn’t dated much, she’s ready to go after him. He might be a six-foot-three, inked, muscular god who’s out of her league, but she wants him to be her first and only.

She’ll risk it all to get his attention, but it won’t be easy, since he’s off-limits.

Giving in to temptation doesn’t come without consequences—it’ll either bring them together or tear them apart.

Tempting the Cowboy is a complete stand-alone and can be listened to without listening to any of the other books or spin-off series, but if you prefer to listen in order, start with Hitching the Cowboy, as the characters and families do interconnect.

*4.5 Stars!!*

I was dying to find out how the story was going to go for Kane Bishop and it did not disappoint. He is so swoony but also spicy to match. Ivy is the bookworm in all of us and I identified with her introverted self so much. The age gap between this two might see big but they shut down any and all worries about.

Kane and Ivy are truly each other's best match. They complete each other while bringing out the best in the other person as well. I really enjoyed watching their relationship grow and them come to love everything about each other including each other's hobbies.

I am going to cry the day this series is over but until then I am so happy to have had another visit to Circle B Ranch.

Anything is possible....

OH MY HOTNESS! Kane Bishop and Ivy Calloway story was filled with intense chemistry that is off limits. After Knox, his twin brother marries the women he once thought he loved (but realized in another way) he is at point where he wants a family of his own. Enter Ivy who has come back into his life; however, along with the age gap between them she is also the forbidden best friend's little sister.

Ivy's has always had a crush on Kane which felt like forever. She is the quiet, book nerdy type woman where as Kane is an a alpha inked male that has women swooning for him. She is risking in hopes to me more regardless who he is connected too.

Once again Author Kennedy Fox brought out the fire between two people keeping their relationship on the down low. Pursing to be more will either make or break them in the long run. The temptation is strong but oh so worth it. Narrators Lia Longola and Tor Thom brought their story to life and one that have me falling this twin!

Really liked this friends to lovers

After Knox’s story I was looking forward to Kane’s romance. Know wants to find the one for him and start a family of his own. Ivy has been half in love with Kane her whole life and but doesn’t feel like he sees her as anyone but his best friends sister. She feels he is out of her league. Little does she know that since setting eyes on her again he has been thinking about her two. I loved these two. Age gap doesn’t bother me in either direction. I feel like she knew what she wants and finally went for it and Kane is such a fantastic hero. Enjoyed from start to finish. The narrators did great with these two. Tor Thom is one of my favorites.

Cant get enough😊😊

From the previous book, I can say that I am a Kane fan. I freaking adore him. After his hit and miss with Hadleigh he decided to start dating. And this one also didn't work out that great either. So when he started having some feelings for Ivy (Hadleigh's little sister) he just feels this cant be right. She is younger than him and his best friends sister. But the heart wants what the hearts want.
Ivy is one of my all time favorite heroine. She is a bookworm, kind, shy and loves her family. She has had a crush on Kane since forever, but when he started dating someone she thought that was it. Until she noticed that he is looking at her in a different way. Could he be feeling what she is feeling...
I absolutely adored this couple, and man do I love these two narrators as well. They were totally spot on for them. Everything about this story makes me love romance. Small town, filled with love, family and amazing friends.

Loved Kane and Ivy

I loved this one, as Knox already had his HEA. I was waiting for Kane, and rooting for him. He's had a crush on his best friend since he was young, but what he feels for Ivy is so sweet and sexy at the same time!

Kane works on the family farm, but he's also creative. He grew from the experience with Knox and Hadley, and what he wants is a family of his own. He connects with Ivy, who's crushed on him since he was young. Though she's a bookworm, she's creative as well and also has a head for business. I love how they come together and how sweet Kane is to Ivy.

Tor Thom and Lia Langola narrated this book as well, and it was nothing short if perfection. I loved each installment with these narrators and are so great in their roles. Highly recommend the audio!

This book had all the good feels and lots of steam!

I just loved Kane and Ivy, I was so excited to see their relationship. Kane was sweet and definitely all caveman like Ivy's book boyfriends. Ivy was shy, but started to come into her own. I so enjoyed seeing her and Kane together.

WAY better than the last one . . .

THIS is the kinda romance I like; not like the last one AT ALL. Kane is sweet and caring, never makes fun of her or treats her like s****, even with her speech issue. Ivy actually reminds me of me a little bit, with her shyness and her bookworm personality. * SLIGHT Spoiler Here * The ONLY thing that was kinda off-putting for me (and why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5) is that for a virgin, Ivy didn’t seem very hesitant at all about sex or trying new things with a guys. But I don’t know, maybe when you’ve read a lot of sexy romances like she has, maybe you become a little “braver”, if that’s the right word . . .

Gaaaaah I adore Kane!

After getting Knox’s story, I have been dying to get my hands on Kane’s and I was not disappointed. Ivy is a spitfire under that reserved persona and Langola brought her to life in so many ways! Oh does she give Kane a run for his money. I loved their banter and their connection when they just talked to each other. I adored how Langola and Thom work so well together while narrating. They just fit together. Ivy and her crush then Kane worried what others would think of the age gap made things more intense between these two and made for a very sizzling moment. There is a little drama which makes for some awkward moments and adds to the depth of the story but I can honestly say I devoured it in one sitting. I even ignored my coffee for this one and that says a lot! I love love love this series and I cannot wait to get Kaitlyn’s story but I am not ready for this series to end!

Beautiful Story!

This is the eighth book in the Circle B Ranch Series. I love this series! Kane and Ivy's story is so sweet, sexy, and beautiful. I loved this age-gap and best friend's little sister romance. Lia Langola and Tor Thom did an excellent job with the narration. I enjoyed it.

Best in series

🎧 AUDIO REVIEW 🎧

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Hands down the best book in the series. I couldn’t stop listening.

I knew I was going to love Kane but I loved Ivy just as much. I loved how they came together and how bold they both where eight each other.

They are one of my favourite couples that Kennedy Fox has written and I cannot wait for the next book. Never know they might have saved the best for last. There sister sounds like a hoot in this book!

My Thoughts on Tempting the Cowboy

This has to be one of the steamiest, dirtiest books I’ve ever heard. And I loved every minute of it. I enjoyed the age gap and sister’s best friend/best friend’s little sister tropes. I liked both main characters and of course loved getting to see more of the couples from previous books as well. Kane was finally getting his time to shine, and I was ready for it. I still kind of felt bad for him after the previous book, despite how much it was said it was for the best and him realizing he didn’t really love his best friend in the forever love/happily ever after kind of way. I liked Kane and Ivy together though. And that’s what really made me like this book so much. I thought they were a good fit and brought out good aspects in each other. I liked the progression of their relationship and the pace in which things developed. And then once I got the very satisfying HEA for Kane and Ivy, I loved the bonus epilogue with Kaitlyn.
The narration on this story was perfection once again. I never have any complaints about Tor Thom or Lia Langola and this story was no different.

Love this series a lot

I could barely put this down. I have been a huge fan of the Circle B series (and the original series) for a long time and it seems like the books just get better and better. This is a pretty low angst best friend's sister/age gap story and after what happened in Claiming The Cowboy I really needed this MMC to get his happy ending. I love this family saga and truly hope it never ends (I know it will, just let me have this) but like usual, I can't wait for the next one. I volunteered to read and review an early copy of this. All opinions are my own.

Fabulous Story & Narration🎧 Sweet & Spicy🔥Hot!

“Circle B Ranch” is one of my favorite places to visit, Kennedy Fox created something special with series and the world they built, the characters are absolutely amazing, they are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with, most of all they are easy to care about and are the type of people any of us would be lucky enough to have in our lives. Each book in this series stands on its own, but I highly recommend them all since some characters reappear in each other’s books and seeing them again is like seeing an old friend. After what the Bishop twins went thru in “Claiming The Cowboy” I was happy that Kane was getting his own story and finding his own special someone and it turned out he did not have to go very far to find her. This story takes place a couple of years after the last book ended, Kane is in a relationship with Raelyn, though they do not see each other very often though since they live hours apart and have busy schedules. Hadleigh and Knox are happily married and have started a family of their own. Her younger sister, Ivy, is finishing college and is working with Harper, whose goat soap business has boomed. Ivy is more of an introvert and a book nerd, she has had a secret crush on Kane, her sister’s best friend for as long as she remembers, but he only ever saw her as his friend’s kid sister. When she finally gets brave enough to talk to Kane, she learns he is in a relationship, so much for going after her crush. But she gets to see him more now that they share a nephew and they become friends and it does not take long for Kane to realize she is not just his friend’s kid sister. The chemistry between these two is undeniable and heating by the minute and once they give in to it, it will be explosive. I loved how everything played out in this book, it is a beautifully written and plotted story with the perfect balance of drama, humor and charm, heartfelt emotions and a slow burn romance that is flaming hot once it is light. Kennedy Fox, thank you for another fabulous story and emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, Lia Langola and Tor Thom are the perfect cast to bring these characters and their story to life. They continue to portray these characters with a complete understanding of who they are and play the role with perfection. You could hear how much heart they put into their work as they capture all the character’s emotions and project them into their performance. These entertaining storytellers are versatile voice artists and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another amazing and enjoyable listen.
