"Never fall in love with a cowboy." These words were drilled into Emily Sterling's head since her parents divorced over twenty years ago. But now Emily has returned to her father's ranch… only to find herself face-to-face with jawdroppingly hot rancher Clay Whitaker.Cowboy Up was quick and to the point. Emily and Clay had previously met ten years before, but it was more memorable to one of them.
Clay is the resident stud expert at the Last Chance Ranch and isn't so keen on "spoiled" city slickers…until Emily arrives. Now he's showing Emily just what a ranch—and a cowboy—has to offer. And luckily for him, it's an offer Emily can't refuse...
Emily and Clay are attracted to one another and secretly begin an affair that’s not as secret as they’d like to believe. They seem to have a very strong sexual connection and a so-so connection everywhere else.
Emily’s sudden turn-around about ranch life wasn’t all that believable for me. Although she insisted it had nothing to do with her relationship with Clay, I still felt it did. I did however enjoy watching her relationship with her father blossom. I felt bad for her father and how much he had missed of Emily’s life.
This is a quick, fun read with a few sexy encounters. Nice pick for an afternoon of light reading.
