I received Dylan (The Secret Life of Cowboys) by C.H. Admirand to review. Dylan is the second book in this series. Tyler is the first and Jesse will be the third (due out in June 2012). I have not read Tyler, and I was not lost reading Dylan, but you can bet I'll be getting Tyler soon, and Jesse when it comes out, too.
The Secret Life of Cowboys series is about 3 brothers doing everything they can to save their ranch. Here's a synopsis from Amazon:
THERE WAS NOTHING HE COULDN'T TAME...
Dylan Garahan might be an old hand at lassoing fillies, but one night at the Lucky Star club, and he ends up wrapping his rope around someone that even his formidable strength can't tame. She's wily and beautiful... and she's his new boss. Dylan's had his heart broken before, but even an honest cowpoke has to wrestle with temptation...
UNTIL HE GOT HIS LASSO AROUND HER...
Ronnie DelVecchio might be fresh off the bus from New Jersey, but she's a hard-edged businesswoman and has had her fill of men she can't trust-although she might consider getting off her high horse for that big, handsome rancher with a Texas drawl.
My Review -
I absolutely loved this book! Great action, great romance, and just a little mystery! C.H. Admirand write real men - men with feeling, men who can't express themselves, men who get upset when their hearts get broken, men who fight with their brother just as much as they work with their brothers.
What could be more different than a Texas cowboy and a Jersey girl? The heat between Ronnie and Dylan is intense! at first it seems like they should be oil and water, just too different to go together, but soon enough they realize that they have finally found what they've been looking for.
The scenery is perfect - a tiny Texas town called Pleasure. The dialogue is witty, sassy and well written.
This book was a perfect break from some of the heavier stuff I normally read - not that it was all fluff! Just good romance and love...nothing wrong with some lovin'.
I highly recommend Dylan, and the entire Secret Life of Cowboys series.
