Summary from the publisher:

They have a deal: Rachel will teach the newly divorced Mac to date again, and he'll accompany her to her brother's wedding. Seems like a straight forward trade, but when Mac decides the kisses he wants can only be found on Rachel's lips, he sabotages all her efforts to find him another woman.

Rachel's never met a man more inept at meeting women. If he's not sharing inappropriate information, he's hitting them with the worst come-on lines she's ever heard. The man can't even do a decent Texas Two-Step. If she didn't need a date to her brother's wedding so desperately . . .

My Musings:

Let me begin by saying I loved this book.  I did not realize when I began that it is the second in the series (A Knight in Cowboy Boots is the first), but that did not interfere with my enjoyment.  Of course, I liked it so much that I immediately read the first book when I finished this one.

Rachel is a strong, take control woman and her personality sometimes puts people off.  That includes members of her own family.  They love her, but they don’t always seem to like her.  She has never had a relationship of her own, which makes it especially funny that she has been chosen to help Mac find someone new.

Mac is having a difficult time entering the dating arena after his divorce.  He was married for fifteen years and things have certainly changed.  He makes a deal with Rachel to help him learn how to meet women again.  In return, he will be her “date” to her brother’s wedding.  She needs someone to divert her mother from trying to fix her up.

Mac is not the normal alpha hero.  At first, I was not sure I liked him, but his determination to get on with his life was endearing.  Rachel’s relationship problems came from her need to be in control.  Even when she was interested in a man, she could not seem to let herself go enough to get close to anyone.

This need for control also interferes with Rachel’s developing relationship with Mac.  They fall in love (not a spoiler, because really what else did you think was going to happen?), but she still cannot let herself go enough to enjoy a sexual relationship.  To me, this is when the story really begins.  Mac is determined not to lose Rachel and will do whatever it takes to make her feel the same about him.

Suzie Quint has definitely made it to my autobuy list.  She has a short story (All’s Fair) about Sol, one of the other brothers, which only whet my appetite for a complete book.  There are so many books to come.  After all, Rachel is one of thirteen siblings and I want each one’s story.

The author’s website does not indicate when a new book will be published, but I will definitely keep checking.  I don’t even care which sibling is involved as long as I get another story about this family.

This sounds like a great read. The author's name rang a bell but couldn't connect it w/ a title. That last name is kinda hard to forget once you've heard it. Have to add this one to my mountain.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy one...so in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca gift cards on this rewards site)
