In a Ranger's Arms by Donna Michaels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was such a fun read, sweet & sexy Stone had me right from the start....and his "girlfriend" Lulabelle was HYSTERICAL!
One would think that the way Stone and Jovy met wouldn't lead to anything other than animosity towards one another and maybe at first the dislike was there but that changed in a blink of an eye when Jovy landed in Stones arms.
The chemistry was great between Stone & Jovy but what I enjoyed more was the fun they had, this wasn't insta-love but it was definitely insta-lust. It seemed that Stone needed Jovy to help him relax, he was always so worried about everything whether it was the ranch, the construction business, his brother, or the Veteran's that he was helping out, Stone always took everything very seriously and needed a bit of lightness that Jovy gave him. There were a couple of times in the story that I felt bad for all that he put on himself but then quickly realized that it made him the man he is and he was perfect for Jovy.
Jovy is also under a lot of pressure (seriously opening a vegan Cafe in the heart of cattle country!?!? What was her grandfather thinking when he set her up with that business?) she needed to show a bigger profit than her cousin did in his endeavor after their four week time limit so that she would be named a grandfathers successor and become the CEO of Larson Industries. Not only does she have the pressure of the contest on her shoulders but she is a meat lover that has to be vegan for the next month as well, can she withstand the pressure and let her guard down a bit to have fun with Stone?
This was a great start to the The Men of At Ease Ranch series I look forward to reading about more of the guys, especially Brick (Stone's older brother) who seems to be allergic to commitment.
