Book & Author Details:
Red Hot Rancher by Marie Johnston
Publication date: 15th April 2019
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Full-time fireman and part-time rancher Caleb is living the bachelor’s dream and staying rent-free in his best friend’s place. Too bad it’s because he lost his house to a tornado and his best friend’s sister is the one that got away. At least she doesn’t visit often—the last thing he needs is to show her she was right about him: he’s going nowhere fast. But when her cheating fiancé kicks her out, she has no place to go except her brother’s suddenly too-crowded ranch house.
After a streak of bad decisions, Brigit has to slink back home to nurse her wounds and find a job. To complete her humiliation, there’s no way she can avoid the first love she walked away from years ago—because he’s sleeping on the other side of her wall. At least it’s only a matter of time before she’s gone again. After all, there’s nothing in this town for her but bullies and cow patties…except a fireman in cowboy boots who melts her heart and makes her consider love again.
He’s not leaving. She’s not staying. If the reason they can’t be together is so simple, why is it so hard to remember?
This is a really enjoyable book. The characters, the plot, the chemistry – they all work really well together to deliver a story full of heart.
Now, that might not give you a lot to work with in terms of helping you decide whether or not to give this book a go. But what I can tell you is that although this is a reasonably limited number of kindle pages, the story itself feels bigger, more encompassing than the page count would imply.
An ideal holiday read, and well worth having on your reading list.
