Review: Ever After at Sweetheart Ranch by Emma Cane

The only thing hotter than a cowboy...

Math teacher Lyndsay De Luca never surprised anyone—least of all herself—until this summer. First, she secretly published her debut romance novel. Then, she started dating Will Sweet, the cowboy of her dreams. And now, Lyndsay's scrambling to hide the juiciest tidbit of all: that the hazel-eyed hero of her steamy fiction is the same guy whose kisses have become her mind-blowing reality.

...Is a cowboy in love.

Ever since Will's high-school sweetheart died in a tragic accident, he hasn't been able to commit to a long-term relationship. Lyndsay is the first woman in years who's been able to catch—and keep—his attention. When they team up to teach Valentine's teens about ranch life, Will discovers it's not just her sexy-as-hell smile that has him hooked. Will she be the one to finally break down the walls around his guarded heart?

Terri's Thoughts

** I received and advanced copy of this book from the publisher Avon via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is April 28th 2015**

This book is part of the Valentine Valley series, book number 6 I believe with some novellas thrown in as well.  The good news is that this can be read as a stand alone.  Other characters are prevalent in the story that perhaps had a story of their own previously however it was not confusing or needed to read this.

What can I say about this story.  It delivered exactly what you would expect of a story of this genre.  There were strong male and female characters, strong family and community ties, sizzling chemistry and some hot scenes.  Did I forget to mention the male is a hot cowboy?  You get the picture.  This has the right formula when you are looking for that little bit of distraction with a good ole romance.

What I enjoyed the most about the story is that Cane almost poked a little bit of fun at the romance genre. I giggled when Lyndsay was worried about the communities reaction to her romance novel she published since it had some steamy scenes in it.  It was almost like Cane was asking the reader to wait for the "real" steamy scenes.  It is hard to explain but I appreciated it.

Overall I enjoyed this story.  While it did not deliver any wow moments I also did not expect it to.  What I expected was a couple of hours curled up with (in this case) a hot cowboy and some good old fashion romance.  Mission accomplished.
