First off ~ Hello, beautiful drool-worthy cover. Where have you been all my life? **Fans self.** The down fall to owning a kindle and reading from it is that you miss all the fantasmic covers that are out there. And this is definitely one of them. **Wipes drool off chin.
Okay, now that I've somewhat contained my raging ovaries, I'll try to put on my big girl panties long enough to write a review.
I won Rocky Mountain Heat in a giveaway and I will be buying the rest of this series. Thank you to the giveaway gods for sending this little goodie my way!
Jaxi has always known what she has wanted in life--to be a rancher's wife. She has even taken classes to help her in this role. Although her eyes and heart are focused on the sexy and much older Blake Coleman, she knows he will never see her as anything but a child.
Jaxi is determined to show Blake that she is no longer that little girl-but a strong woman who can stand beside him, love him, and help him with the ranch.
Blake is just as determined to keep his thoughts off of Jaxi and tries to steer clear of her at all times. Something he finds very hard when Jaxi sets her mind to teasing the poor man into giving in to her sexy ways.
What I loved about this book was the fact that although there were really strong sexual feelings between Jaxi and Blake, the two lovers put sex aside to see if what they had was more than just...well..sex.
Blake wanted to woo her, charm her, and learn about the woman who knocked his boots off. To make sure that what they both felt was real and not the illusion of love--even though Jaci drives him crazy in the process. (And make for a very comical read, lol).
There is also a secondary story that I'm hoping will get its own HEA. It involves Blake's brother Matt. His story is not so happy in Rocky Mountain Heat and he's involved with a bitch of a woman who can't see how lucky she is. I'm crossing my fingers that Arend hooks him up with a woman just as strong as Jaxi.
Rocky Mountain Heat is packed with sexy cowboys, erotic lap-dancing and an interesting take on a game of pool. It also has a set of twins who charmed their way into my heart with their silly antics and I can't wait to see what Arend has in store for them.
