Steve and Melody have a past but it wasn't really a relationship. They had sex. Acceptable sex, but nothing earth shattering. When Melody determined that Steve was a man she couldn't count on she ended it and moved away to continue her education. Now she has returned to start her professional life, never expecting that the man she left behind no longer exists.
Steve has had time to regret his fallout with Melody and to analyze the problem. That would be him. So he starts acting like an adult and embracing responsibility, finding he has a knack for it and a real appreciation for the different kind of life it affords him. As well as the respect. Now to make everything complete he needs to get back the one that got away, and after her remark about his less than impressive abilities in the bedroom, he vows to add that to his repertoire to get her back.
Never challenge a man’s sexual prowess, unless you want him to prove him wrong; and boy Steve does that! I really enjoyed the slow build of trust and respect that the new Steve garnered from Melody, as well as the natural progression of a relationship intended to go the distance. This was a steamy read that really took me surprise a few times, and in a totally good way.
Second chances are the sweetest—and the hottest.
It took a spectacularly embarrassing break-up to knock Steve Moonshine Coleman off his lazy butt. In the ten months since that night, he’s changed his ways. Now that Melody’s back in town, it’s time for this sweet-talking cowboy to convince her to get back in the saddle with him.
A return to her veterinary position in Rocky Mountain House was always in the cards for Melody Langley. Getting back together with Steve? Never part of the plan. He had lots of potential but zero ambition, and there’s no way she’ll accept anything less than a man who can keep up with her, in and out of bed.
But the new-and-improved cowboy is impossible to resist, so Melody issues a challenge. Three months to prove he’s reformed. Three months of Steve orchestrating one sexual indulgence after another—?wicked distractions from the old boys’ club Melody faces at work and Steve's growing responsibilities?.
He’s got one shot to prove with more than words what’s in his heart and soul.
Warning: Fifty percent less angst, twice as much filthy-talking, dirty-daring cowboy. Get ready for a whole lot of make-your-knees-weak wooing from a man intent on proving he’s got what it takes, and the woman ready to push him way past his limits.
