This steamy romance tale gives another delicious glimpse of the charismatic members of the McBride family of Prescott, Arizona. The author does a nice job of presenting a topic that impacts many women who become overwhelmingly focused on their perception of themselves even as she tells a sensual love story. It is always nice to get glimpses of the characters from previous novels in the series as their lives unfold and one is tempted to visit this corner of the world and experience the beauty and atmosphere so vividly described. I was glad that Jo was spotlighted in this particular story since I had been curious about her and Tate is yet another yummy alpha male McBride to add to an impressive lineup. Another enjoyable tale in a alluring series.
“Tying You Down” by Cheyenne McCray is part of the ‘Riding Tall’ series that features the attractive McBride brothers. Tate McBride has bided his time while Jo Burke has settled back into life in Prescott, Arizona but he is ready to convince the wary woman that he wants a relationship. Jo has lasting issues from her past that she is still striving to overcome and her younger sister has entered into a relationship that may cause her to repeat the mistakes that Jo herself has dealt with. Tate has quite a few obstacles to overcome but he is ready and willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish his goals.
Jo Burke hasn’t had it easy in life and that includes her history with men. She’s resigned herself to the fact that she really knows how to choose ’em. Not. So when Tate McBride comes around, she doesn’t trust her instincts for a minute because those same instincts have proven faulty time and again. He can’t be nearly as great a guy as he appears to be on the surface.
Tate McBride enjoys being around the feisty redheaded but can’t quite get her to trust him. He’s not worried, though, because one way or another he’s going to win her over.
When Jo’s life is in danger, Tate comes face to face with the possibility of losing the woman he loves. He’s not about to let that happen.
