This one sat on my shelf for nearly a year before I finally picked it up. Damn shame too since it was a great read! I'm a city girl through and through but this one had me seriously considering how far the nearest ranch and cowboys are from here :) Whew, yeah, cowboys- who knew?

The book is 3 separate stories each about one of the McMasters' sisters finding their cowboys when they return home to their family ranch. Branded was my favorite and what made it such a Hot Read! Brea's shy, inexperienced and a little wounded. Gabe, he's a little bit aggressive and has the whole dominant thing going on. Likes to be in control and in charge.
"I was patient with you tonight, Brea. I held back. This is what I want you to make sure you're ready for." He fisted his hand in her hair, brought his lips to hers and gave her what he'd wanted to give her all night- a real kiss. She gasped as he parted her lips with his and drove his tongue inside her mouth. He claimed her mouth with demand, with possession, with the understanding that if she came to him again, she'd be his for the taking. He wound his tongue around hers, then sucked, crushing his lips against hers, pushing her back against the wall and letting her feel him--all of him--until there was no mistaking exactly what he wanted. And when he'd pushed her--and himself--to the brink, he let go.  
Brea's eyes shot open.  
"If that's what you want, if that's what you can handle, then you let me know."
So, yeah, things get pretty damn steamy between the two of them (and it's really, really good) but he doesn't just try to jump in her panties. He actually wants to know about her, wants to bring her out of her shell and help her find her self confidence after some pretty bad experiences with other guys. That's what put this one over the top for me. Yeah, I'm getting the whole cowboy thing now!  Or at least this one :)


Did you have any fun, Hot Reads this month?

    1. Oh the Play-by-Play series is fantastic! I hope you get it for your birthday :) I can't wait for the next one to come out. She does a biker series that's pretty good too.

  2. Holy cow, that does sound like a HOT READ! I started reading cowboy romances this past year, and I LOVE them :) I didn't know that Jaci Burton wrote cowboy romance, but now I am for sure adding it to the TBR. Thanks so much for joining in Hot Reads this month! Book Savvy Babe

    1. I liked the cover too. I'm going to try to get my hands on the other book she wrote that's set up this way. It had some great reviews too.

  4. Nice choice! I'm a fan of Burton's - but haven't read this one. Will definitely be checking this out. So far from what I've read by her, I've never been disappointed.
