Rode Hard, Put Up Wet { Review}

Rode Hard, Put Up Wet

Trade Paperback, 300 pages
Published August 1st 2008 by Samhain Publishing

(first published 2007)

Workin up a hot, sticky sweat is pure pleasure with a hard-ridin cowboy or two. Struggling stock contractor Gemma Jansen swallows her pride and tracks down circuit rider Cash Big Crow to offer him a job managing her ranch. Cash agrees on one condition: theirs won't be strictly a working relationship. She's the boss during the day, but once she's corralled in the bedroom, Cash calls the shots. Despite concerns about their age difference, Gemma consents. Cash suspects the sexy widow hides an untapped wild streak. He intends to loosen her tightly held reins of control even if he has to break out his horsewhip to do it. But Cash is in for a surprise. Gemma proves a rough and ready participant in any leather-n-lace game Cash dreams up. Between riding herd on his wayward daughter, Macie, and rowdy cowboy Carter McKay doggin Macie's every boot step, Cash struggles to hide his true feelings for Gemma except this time, Gemma's grabbed the bull by the horns and she's playing for keeps. Summer's going to be a hot one at the Bar 9.

First Line(s): "That horse nearly throwed you clean into the funeral parlor, boy".

My Review: Giddy Up!! Rode Hard, Put Up Wet is a book about second chances for all 4 characters. We first meet Gemma and Big Cash Crow in the first book in the Rough Rider series. They brought something we normally don't get in romance novels and that is the age factor ( he is in his later 30, she mid 40's). The story between them was endearing, true and raw!

With Carter we get the struggling artist with a quick and hot temper who finds a muse in Macie ( Big Cash Crow's daughter). Their relationship is hot from the start but can these two put aside their insecurities?

Hott from start to end!
