Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
I guess I have to stop saying a certain phrase when it comes to Contemporary Romance novels. You know the one. Oh, come on. I must have said it like a THOUSAND times (or more) throughout my reading/blogging years. Alright, alright...one last time for good measure. *ahem*....
...I don't read cowboy books...
...because now, in certain circumstances, it appears that I DO!
Now don't go getting your hopes up, the ten gallon hat, poo-kicking boots, and blinding belt buckles still don't do a thing for me, but the way their characters are written beyond the crazy getup and gear...well, I can't say I'm not fond of it... 😉 ... and this story REALLY gives the old stereotype a run for its money. Ready or not, her comes today's book of choice...
Ember Alzate is a fantastic matchmaker with one big problem: she can’t find the perfect mate for herself! Alzate family legend says that when she kisses “the One” she’ll hear a mysterious humming in her head. Well, Ember’s kissed a lot of guys and she’s never heard a thing. Now, instead of searching for herself, she vows to find her best friend, Ranger Lockhart, a bride. It’s clear this smart, sexy man just needs to meet the right gal.
Ranger’s returned home to Cupid with marriage on his mind, but he’s not interested in the parade of women Ember pushes under his nose. His thoughts keep returning to his best friend—with her combustible combination of curves and sass. No one compares to Ember, but what’s it going to take to convince her she’s the woman for him?
Don’t be so bossy.
If you want boys to like you, let them win..."
