This story should have been called My Sexy, Sexy, Secret Ranger.
Brick Mitchum has earned his nickname “Romeo” for a reason, he loves women… for a single night. With love in the air at the At-Ease ranch and after meeting Beth, Brick has been having second thoughts about relationships. Especially since this sweet and sexy buxom woman has been occupying more and more of his thoughts and heart.
When even organizer Beth Brannigan went to help with her best friend’s wedding, she never thought she would have a fling with a cowboy, after all, her definition of adventure normally consisted in color codding her planner.
Thinking Beth needs son fun and excitement in her life, her friend dares her to kiss a stranger, Beth was happily surprised to see the lucky man was her secret cowboy and didn’t hesitate to slap on a big ‘ol smooch which lead to more kisses, more dates, and just plain more. But when Beth figures out her secret cowboy is actually a ranger who served alongside her brother, she knows things will go south. Can she convince Brick to give them a shot after she tells him who she is?
I read the first book in the series and was charmed by the characters, the small town and Lula Belle the cow. Yes a cow made me smile! And I couldn’t wait to read about the other Mitchum brother.
This is a sexier read than the previous book, a much, much sexier one that fogged up my eReader from the get go because the protagonist just couldn’t seem to take their hands off each other.
Building from their irresistible attraction, their relationship goes from fling to f-al-ling in love between laughs and sensual touches and a lot of sneaking around in Beth’s case after she gathers Brick is her brother’s Army Ranger friend.
Even though she’s a grown woman and shouldn’t base her decisions on other people’s opinions, I did understand where she came from and the cloak and dagger made for some humorous situations, and when the time came to fess up I wanted to slap her brother and Brick over the head for being so silly.
I loved having Lula Belle, Stone, Jovy and the rest of the men from the At Ease ranch back. I can’t wait to read about Cord, Beth’s brother.
Her Secret Ranger is book #2 in the Men At Ease Ranch series by Donna Michaels. This a fun, sexy and fast standalone romance, told from both points of view with a happy ending and introduction to the next couple in the series.
