A cowgirl at heart, Skye Martinez has a rebellious streak she's determined to shake. Especially since she's poised to take the reins of her family's business at Briscoe Ranch Resort. It's time for her to settle down and get serious about her future...right after one last night of fun with a handsome stranger she meets in the resort's stable. But when a midnight horseback ride turns into a red-hot weekend with one of country music's biggest stars, Skye's world is rocked beyond her wildest dreams...
Gentry Wells rode his bad boy image all the way to the top of the country music charts. But churning out hits has dried up his creativity, and he can't remember the last time his life was his own. Skye is a sexy distraction he can't resist, especially since she breathes new life into his music. They bring out the wild side in each other, which is great for Gentry's career—but a major threat to Skye's. Too bad he's fallen in love with her. With their hearts and futures on the line, can Gentry convince Skye to turn their joyride into a real chance to ride off into the sunset together?
Wow...I've read quite a few of Melissa Cutler's books and I can honestly say she has outdone herself in the sexilicious department with this book. This book is HAWT!!
I loved the premise and pretty much everything about this story. Gentry is a country star whose fame is waning. After 10 or 12 years in the business, his interest in the game of fame is waning and that's affecting everything about his music, including his ability to write it. He's under a lot of pressure and is at this wedding as a favor to his manager. Gentry doesn't think he's sunk so far as to be considered a wedding singer yet...but he's getting there. He's at the one month mark deadline for his last chance to save his career.
Skye is a rebel, who really tries to squelch that side of her personality. Every time she's acted on her impulsiveness before, it's come back to bite her. Now she's trying to do everything right...date the right guy, act the right way, be the responsible one...and it's slowly stifling and killing her. She's out for a midnight ride/escape when she meets Gentry. She has no idea who he is. He finds that refreshing. She finds him too tempting to resist...and things happen...very HOT things.
This book was so much fun. I loved how both Gentry and Skye agree that they are not right for one another, despite how hot they are together. They obviously have very different goals in mind...but that doesn't stop that pull to one another. I would never have guessed the way the story was going to work out. I loved everything about the ending. No spoilers, but wow...LOVED all those twists and turns.
I've loved a lot of Melissa Cutler's books, but this one is definitely one of my favorites of hers. It has a great story, a great flow, and was a total joy to read. I'm so happy I got to read it.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
