4 stars-- Smooth-Talking Cowboy (Gold Valley #1) by Maisey Yates

Hands down. You need some Yates in your life! Honest to goodness. The woman knows how to deliver one lickable cowboy.
The Gist: The only thing worse than being stranded on the side of the road with a flat tire? Being rescued by the man who drives you batshit insane and gets under your skin like no one else.
Trying times, yall. Trying times. But seeing as Olivia needs a hot guy to make her ex jealous and Luke needs help in buying a property he wants... a bargain is made. They'll both get what they want if they can survive 'dating' one another for just a little while.
Luke and Olivia were too much. Yall, they were a handful! Olivia's all prim and proper and never steps a toe out of line. Luke's a do-what-feels-good kinda guy with a passion for tweaking her nerves. They kept me smiling and rooting for them as they worked through some personal issues and some lusty wanna-strip-you-naked issues. Not to mention the eye-rolling-you-drive-me-crazy issues.
He lifted one brow. "Provocative?" Well. That has several connotations to it, sweet thing."

There he was. Provoking. "Do not call me that."

"Don't call you what?" He lifted his glass and indicated the empty state to Laz. "Honey or sweet thing?"

Both. Neither. I am nothing remotely sugar-based to you."

"Well. My mistake."
I liked watching her get a little naughty with him. Seeing Luke finally go after what he wanted. Seeing them both figure out that other people's choices weren't their fault and didn't reflect on who they were.

And the sex scenes. Woo! Steamy, passionate, curl your toes good. All that bickering and teasing sure makes for some fabulous foreplay. Mmhm.

All in all, total book noms. Smooth-talking Cowboy had me in a swoon. You really can't go wrong with Yates.

Olivia Logan has a plan: win back her ex by making him see what he’s missing. But first she needs to find a man who’s willing to play along. With his laid-back cowboy charm and knack for getting under her skin, Luke Hollister is an unlikely hero—but he wants her help convincing her father to sell him land, which means he needs her as much as she needs him.

Luke likes his life—and his women—uncomplicated. So why does good girl Olivia heat his blood like no one else? She’s always been off-limits, but the more time they spend as Gold Valley’s hottest new “couple,” the more real it’s starting to feel. Luke was supposed to help her win back another man…not keep her in his arms. But now that he has her there, he’s not sure he’ll ever let go.
