Dead Heat Ranch Novella, #0.5
Note: This novella was previously published in the Some Like It Hot Anthology. Although the story has not changed, this version contains a short bonus scene.
New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards is heating things up with Boots Optional, a sexy new ménage novella which is the first book in a hot new series called Dead Heat Ranch.
Grace Lambert is familiar with hard work, long days, and handsome cowboys. She’s been working for her family’s dude ranch since she was old enough to ride a horse and she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. What she is afraid of is the heat that’s been generating between her and not one, but two sexy cowboys who’ve set their sights on her. And each other.
Grant Kingsley and Lane Miller have both had their eyes on Gracie for years, but the feisty cowgirl has managed to keep them at bay. As far as they are concerned, cowboys don’t give up, and neither of them is ready to give up just yet. Not on her and not on the heat that transpires between the two of them.
Find out what happens when the sultry Texas nights get as hot as the fierce Texas days.
I chose to read this book because I absolutely LOVE author Nicole Edwards and I was provided with a copy for review.
I'm generally not a fan of novellas/short stories, but I didn't hesitate to pick this up. I knew it would be amazing because Nicole Edwards is an exceptional writer. Boots Optional rocked my boots from start to finish and left me pining away for the next book!
As always, the writing is perfection, I've come to expect nothing less from author Nicole Edwards. She is always thorough and consistent. The characters are well developed and we really get to know them throughout the book.
The word "hot" doesn't aptly describe Boots Optional, because Nicole Edwards has a way of portraying what the characters are experiencing on a deeper level leaving you completely immersed in it all. Many readers will tell you that the FSOG trilogy completely broadened their literary horizons and opened up a world of different and risque genres for them. While that remains true for me, author Nicole Edwards took that a step further in my opinion. She introduces us to even more "non-traditional" relationships and gives the reader a unique perspective of it all. I never ventured to read anything besides M/F before I picked up Nicole's Alluring Indulgence series. Once I did that and experienced reading M/F/M, M/M/F, and then eventually M/M, I loved all of them! I don't believe it was the actual relationship dynamic/status that did it for me either. It was 100% Nicole Edwards writing and the way she evokes so many different emotions and ways of thinking and feeling. This author is phenomenal without a doubt!
I would and do recommend this novella as well as any and all work by Nicole Edwards to any and everyone I have the chance to! If you're looking for something a bit or a lot outside the box with a big dose of crazy sexy cowboys, this is the author you MUST READ!
Can't wait for book #1 of the Dead Heat Ranch, Betting on Grace!
