Librarian Callie Barnes has visions of reading and relaxing—and maybe having a few too many drinks—on her girls’ weekend away. Her hopes are crushed when her friends pull into a dude ranch instead of a spa, and she refuses to stay longer than one night. That is…until she realizes the ranch is owned by sinfully sexy, and dangerously rugged, Wes Braden—the subject of her late-night fantasies.

Fearless rancher Wes Braden thinks he’s the luckiest guy on the planet when the sweet, sexy librarian from his hometown shows up at his ranch. Their connection is white-hot, making it impossible for either to ignore their carnal desires. Wes is more than willing to convert sweet Callie from chick lit to a world of erotic romance, but Callie ties sex to love, and Wes avoids commitment like the plague.

Callie is thrust into physically demanding activities that ignite her deepest fears. Luckily, Wes is as tender as he is strong, and he’s there every step of the way to help her find her inner strength. With Callie’s influence, Wes might even discover that he’s been nursing a few fears of his own. Passion pulls Callie and Wes from their safe, comfortable lives into each other’s arms, and they’re about to find out just how alike they really are.

Review by Brandy

This was another amazing story by Melissa Foster.  I have to admit that I connected with Callie.  I love my books and its easy to fall into a routine of dreaming about the romance you find between the pages.  When Callie has a chance for  a spa weekend with her girlfriends, she is excited to relax.  She is a little out of her element when she realizes that it is a weekend at the ranch owned by the hot man that she has been crushing on.

I really enjoyed this because it was obvious that Callie was out of her depth with Wes especially in the romance department but she was willing to give it a chance.  Sometimes that is all that matters, taking a chance.  When that happens, beautiful things can happen and flourish.  Callie has the type of friends we all need to have and need to be like.  They know her in the ways that are important, know what she is capable of and have the desire to help her find love. 

This is one in a series of fabulous books by Melissa Foster and I recommend you meet all of them.
