t takes two to tango, but three to do the two-step with these Texas cowboys…
Londoner Maryann Morrissy finds the companionship she's missing by making friends on the Internet with fellow rodeo fans in the States. Her fiancé Robert doesn't understand her new obsession. His mocking is just one more thing in a long list that convinces Maryann he's not the man for her. Perfect timing, because Maryann is flying to Texas where two rodeo cowboys are waiting to show her the ropes.
Annoyed he has to pick up his sister's British online buddy from the airport, tie-down roper Wes Griffin drags his best friend Shooter with him. Misery loves company until Wes sees Maryann get off the plane. When her sexy accent makes his heart do the two-step, Wes begins to wish he'd kept Maryann all to himself because Shooter is just as intrigued.
After the nasty end to Maryann’s engagement, she's ready to take both cowboys on, but is Wes willing to share?
This is a short read from Cat Johnson but that didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the tale! Maryam is living in London in a dead-end relationship with a job that is going nowhere. After chatting to rodeo fans in the US on the internet, she decides to visit Texas to see exactly what it is she is missing. En route she finds out that the boyfriend is a loser (she refers to him as a “Wanker” at one point which made me chuckle….a seriously under-used word in literature) and breaks ties with him, landing in the USA free and single. A series of events means that the person who meets her at the airport isn’t the woman she has been chatting to, but her brother Wes and his friend Shooter. They take her out, get her blind drunk and what results is a night that she never imagined herself being part of!
I really enjoyed this short read (it was less that 50 pages) but I wish it was longer (I know….greedy old me!) I would have liked to learn more about Shooter and Wes but this was enough to leave me wanting more! The plot was fluffy but, in this short a read, there was no way that any major developments were going to happen. The chemistry between the three of them was very well written and the sex scenes were steamy enough to keep me more than happy (I had to look up pigging string after this book!) The characters were very animated and, although I liked all three of them, my favourite was definitely Shooter. I’m always a sucker for a charming lothario and this buckle-bunnny collector will (and I have this on good authority) feature in future books.
All in all this is a very solid 4 star story. I recommend Cat Johnson to anyone and this is a lovely little taster of her writing and style of characters. Definitely a good buy 🙂
