Can a hot cowboy convince Lauren to stay in Texas and take another chance on love?
Tucker Carver likes to have fun and has no intention of settling down anytime soon. He handles the business side of Carver Ranch for his family, and on the day he’s scheduled to meet with their accountant, he instead meets a beautiful woman who changes everything.
Lauren Ford packed up and moved to Texas to start over after her fiancé had an affair with her best friend. Her father’s retiring and has offered to let her take over his accounting firm. When she meets Tucker she’s immediately taken with him, despite his reputation as a ladies’ man. Knowing she isn’t looking for love, or even if she wants to stay in Texas, she decides to have fun with Tucker and keep her feelings at bay.
After one taste of Lauren, Tucker has other plans. Lauren is the woman he wants, but for some reason she’s resisting. And it doesn’t help when her ex-fiancé shows up in town wanting her to go back to Georgia with him. Can Tucker convince her that his feelings are true, or will he lose her forever?

What can I say I am a sucker for a book about a HOT cowboy. Give me a cowboy book and I have to read it. When he calls his woman “Darlin'” I just melt 🙂
So when I saw that Lacey Wolfe was writing a cowboy series, I just knew I had to read it. I have been a huge fan of Lacey’s books for awhile now. I don’t think there is a book she has written that I haven’t loved. Her writing style is great. She has the ability of creating wonderful and sexy stories that are quick reads. Her stories are complete and never feel overly rushed. They get to the heart of the story without all the extra information we don’t need. She also creates stories that are primarily drama free, or if there is a situation it is usually over fairly quickly. I also love her characters, they are relatable and easy to connect to.
Tucker and Lauren were no different. They were easy to connect to and also to see their connection to one another. In this story Lauren has just moved from Georgia to Texas to live with her dad and start a new life. Her father is retiring and she is taking over his business, which comes at a great time because she just found out her fiancé Phillip was cheating on her with her BFF Amanda. So what a better time to move on. Little did she know that by taking over her dad’s accounting business, she would cross paths with Tucker. He runs a ranch with his family and she does their books. Once they meet the sparks fly from there. They can’t fight their growing attraction and decide to give it a try. I enjoyed watching them get to know each other and grow into a couple. They do have a small bump in their road, but it is short lived.
I enjoyed meeting all the other secondary characters and I am looking forward to reading more books in this series. I am assuming that each of Tucker’s siblings will be getting a book of their own, or at least I hope that’s the case.
So if you are looking for that quick and spicy cowboy love story then this is the book for you. Lacey doesn’t disappoint and I will always read anything she writes.
Lauren stared at the papers in front of her, but none of it registered. All she could focus on was the half naked man. The hot, sweaty, tanned man who was now naked in his shower only feet away from her.
She shook her head and rubbed her thighs. Enough. It wasn’t like Tucker was the first sexy man she’d seen. She wasn’t blind or innocent, but something about him got her panties moist quick. Hopefully, she could make it through this accounting meeting without ripping her own clothes off and offering herself up to him. She had no doubt he would be an awesome lover. The man worked with his hands all day; surely he knew a thing or two that could please her.
Lauren straightened her back and stared at the stack of papers he’d given her. There were receipts, printouts, and such. Tucker seemed to keep good records, so that would make things easier. She removed her computer from her bag and turned it on. After she pulled up the file for Carver Ranch, she studied it once more to familiarize herself with it.
This was a profitable ranch. Last year had been one of their roughest years, but so far, this year was already better. She was sure once she started to fill in the stuff he’d supplied her with, she’d see they’d come back strong from the previous year.
Lauren jumped in her seat.
“Sorry, didn’t mean to scare you.”
Tucker, now dressed, came over and sat next to her. Whatever soap he’d used attacked her senses in a good way. How did someone get out of the shower, yet still smell like fresh cut pines?
She shouldn’t do it, but she did anyway. She let her gaze wander over his body. The black t-shirt he wore hugged his wide chest, letting her get the full view of his muscles.
Lauren looked away quickly. “Yeah, I think this is it.” She flipped through the stack. “You’re free to do whatever while I do this. I know you’ve got a lot to do.”
“Can I get you something to drink?” He stood, and her focus went straight to his crotch.
Oh God. She glanced up quick to see him smirking. The man knew he was sex on a stick with his sandy blond hair and blue eyes. “Do you have some tea?”
He winked. “I’ll be back.”
“Take your time.” The farther away he was, the more she could concentrate on her work. She wasn’t sure what had come over her, but the sooner she got done with this job, the better. Then she wouldn’t have to see him again until next quarter.
Lacey Wolfe has always had a passion for words, whether it’s getting lost in a book or writing her own. Her goal as an author is to have a romance for everyone, whether it’s sweet, sensual, or spicy. She’s had several books on the Amazon best seller lists. When she isn’t writing, she can be found running, talking to her pets, spending time with her family, or lost in some sort of craft. Oh, and she takes kindly to anyone who feeds her cookies.
Lacey lives in Georgia with her husband, son and daughter, their herd of cats and one black lab who rules the house.
