Publisher's Summary

When plucky single mother Leda Plett goes next door to retrieve her wandering pooch, she doesn’t expect to find a handsome stranger lounging about like he owns the place. She certainly doesn’t expect him to go all "white knight" about her deadbeat ex or her knees to go all wobbly at his sexy smile.

Rodeo-star-turned-agent Eric Anders is used to managing people, and clearly the boots-and-sundress-wearing mouthy mama needs someone to manage her. He wants to help; her spirited spark and quick wit have nothing to do with it.

But when Eric’s good intentions end up bringing only hurt and humiliation, he’s forced to face the fact that he doesn’t always know best. Leda is stronger and wiser than he knew, and his arrogance may have just cost him the one girl he now can’t live without.

Struggled to finish.

Why do they make the girls sound so stupid. Maybe it was just t he narration but when they give the girls that accent they just seem like they are not very bright. Which isn't very fair. If they are educated they lose the accent. Interesting.

Entertaining storyline!

Leda and Eric’s romance was fun because she’s a fiercely independent young single mother with a zany personality and he’s ten years older and is completely fascinated with her from their first combative meeting. Leda hails a heart of gold but she’s sworn off men and Eric’s interest in her is not something she wants. But the former rodeo cowboy turned sports agent won’t take no for an answer which made the story entertaining. I listened to the audiobook and I enjoyed the narration performance of Felicity Munroe.

meh, kind of boring

she was fiery. he was sweet. and older. but they only did a couple of things together and then he was all in. I think the depth of characters outpaced the plot. I mean the female lead was too complex for the plot. the male lead was under developed. nether if them grew together. they were arranged together by the author which is just no fun.

Meh

Not much storyline—just boy meets girl.
Lots of hormones……
Narrator was good—despite not having much material to work with.

I tried

I really did try to like this story. Leda was just so unlikeable. I didn’t like her from the last story and she didn’t get any better in this one. If anything she got so much worse. And the ridiculous made up swear words? It made her see SO childish. Eric seemed like a nice guy and she just was not. It made the story so hard to get through. If I didn’t have this OCD thing about leaving a story unfinished I would have walked away early on. But I struggled through it. Not one of my favorites written by her.

The cowboy next door

Average romance story. I wasn't crazy about this story. it was all about a very rude woman who is constantly being an ass and a very strong and nice older cowboy.

Knew I’d Get into it Eventually

I had a hard time getting into this book initially because of Leda’s personality and behavior … but of course it worked itself out and she started to act more like an adult than a spoiled brat.

lost me at "first fallen women"

Terrible idolization of ignorance and I don't mean the scholarly type but the misguided self-assured stupidity. Trying and failing to be witty main character. Really disappointing...

Great story

I enjoyed this story. It was. Novella so the length and content was appropriate. It had the potential to be longer if more detail especially around the main characters when getting intimate.
