Oh yeah. A single look at the leggy blonde in the stands and Tucker Jenkins is ready to buck all night long. It’s time to forget all about his cheating ex and his usual hands off policy.
One Hot Night…
Becca Hart is an East Coast professor. Not a buckle bunny. But no degree can prepare her for the moves of the sexy bull rider she hooks up with at her first rodeo … Or the shock of finding him at her first Oklahoma State University staff meeting.
One Happy Ending…
Tuck knows it’s all about holding on, no matter how wild the ride. Now he just has to convince Becca that a rough start out of the chute doesn’t mean they aren’t a smokin’ combination …
Becca watched Tucker bend at the waist. Mmm, mmm. He was sure built nice. From the top of his felt hat to the tips of his worn leather boots. Those leather chaps he'd just slung around his hips weren't too bad, either.
He reached back to buckle the chap straps first around one jean-clad thigh, and then the other. And she'd thought the rodeo would be boring. Ha! She could watch Tucker do this all day. Buckle and unbuckle. Bend and stand.
She let out a sign filled with pure contentment. "All right, Em. I'll admit it. Cowboys are hot."
Next to her, Emma laughed. "Oh, yeah."
Sex, cowboys and military! All in one book and perfectly whipped with a solid plot to a steamy frenzy! ONE NIGHT WITH A COWBOY by Cat Johnson was a sweet and hot romance featuring a swoon worthy cowboy and a city girl English professor. It was the sweet and hot romance of Tucker Jenkins and Becca Hart.
As the story opens, Becca has lost her job at Vassar and came home to find her long-time boyfriend moving out of their shared apartment. Becca's sister takes the initiative and throws Becca's hat in the ring for a professorship at Oklahoma State. Lo and behold, Becca is selected for an interview for the open position and the two sisters head out west. The night before Becca's interview, the two attend their first rodeo where Tucker, a recent divorcee was bull-riding. Sparks fly and the couple end up having an intense, sheets-on-fire one-night stand. They both walk away... But, there's much more to their story and you need to read this book to get the engrossing scoop!
Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from this read. Just be aware that the first quote may leave you looking at your library differently as it was a hot scene that occurred in the college library near Chaucer.:
He pulled her closer and she felt the bulge in his jeans. "I never knew books were so sexy."
"You got turned on today by a bologna sandwich, too." She wrapped her arms around his waist. "I don't think it's the books."
"You're right. Maybe it's not the books or the bologna." He leaned lower.
"Maybe it's not." She rose up on her tiptoes, closer to his tempting mouth.
He groaned and closed the small distance between them, backing her up against the shelves as his lips covered hers.
That's why he liked bull riding - get a clear head, get in the chute, try not to get bucked off. Easy. Bull riding was simple, but women? Women were not. He should have said not to her invite. A smart man would have.
He obviously was not a smart man.
When a man that attractive licks his lips, a girl's got to look. And imagine...
Cat has quickly become one of my favorite authors after I discovered her books at the CY2016 Coastal Magic Convention. Her writing is vividly detailed making me feel that I'm right there ... at the rodeo, at the library, in the midst of battle. This was a very enjoyable read. I have already picked up the next installment in audio! If you enjoy reading contemporary romances featuring cowboys... and hot military guys, I highly recommend that you pick up ONE NIGHT WITH A COWBOY!
