Billionaire Ryder Blackwell has got it all under control. The wealthiest cattle baron this side of the Mississippi, he’s built an empire for himself in hopes of getting distance from a tortured past. But when a stunningly sexy—and strong-willed—new vet comes to town just in time for Christmas, Ryder knows he’s met the one spirit he just can’t tame…
Lara Montgomery doesn’t want to be involved with any man, least of all the rich, infuriating, and unbearably sexy Ryder Blackwell. She vows never to tangle with the charming rancher, but when he offers her the ultimate deal—one weekend at his ranch in exchange for a near-priceless horse—Lara cannot refuse. And as the nights get colder and their attraction gets hotter, Lara’s about to get all she’s ever wanted for Christmas…
This story was a sexy quick read and Who doesnt love a cowboy?
Not that Ryder came across much as a cowboy, yes he owns a cattle ranch but this book played the billionaire card more than the cowboy card which i felt was a shame.
I found the events of the story to be over rather quick, everything in the plot happened in a space of 24 hours. which was ok but i found it hard to get to grips with the characters.
The characters lacked a certain depth that connects you to them, and there was little to no build up between Ryder or Lara.
The twist that the author threw in at the end just didn’t fit the story at all and it felt a little forced, it lacked any kind of build up to it, and felt like it was thrown in just for dramatic effect, not to enhance the story at all.
There where brief encounters with secondary characters, but not any that would make a difference to the story if they were not there.
This book was ok to pass a few hours along but it didnt blow my socks off.
