Review:

I really liked the first two books in the love bug series, but for some reason this book wasn’t just up there with them. It was still an enjoyable read and I wanted to read Lance’s story, but I was just left feeling a bit flat.

There was plenty of drama and a great chemistry between the two main character. If you have read the other books in the series you would have met them before. I was just expecting more from the lovable playboy and a strong head woman. I wanted more adventure along the way. There were a few things that happen in the story that kept me reading, but then it just floated for me til the next big event.

Maybe it need to be in the country like the first two books because everybody loves a cowboy.

EXCERPT 

“Need a refill?”

Her eyes shot over to me. I smiled holding out another glass for her. She didn’t appear to be drunk by any means. Something told me that this girl could hold her liquor. Her hand reached out, taking the glass from my grip. When our fingers touched, I knew. I knew she couldn’t deny what was happening between us. There was something definitely happening between us; something that had never happened before … except for once. I turned my head and found my pregnant ex-girlfriend on the lap of my best friend a few tables down. My heart hurt, I could admit that. But seeing two people I truly loved being undeniably happy made it all worth it. I gave them hell and I wished I hadn’t, but things were right with the world now. I was happy enough for them.

“Would you like to sit?”

Yep. Things were right with the world now.

I sat down next to Katherine in a wooden folding chair. The distance was too great, so I adjusted my chair, becoming almost flush with hers. I draped my arm around her and rested it on the back of the chair. I stared out over the dance floor and could feel her eyes question my arm around her. She would just have to get used to it. I planned on touching a lot more than just her shoulder.

“So, what has you all mopey?” I asked as I continued to watch Jordan and Tom’s first dance.

“I’m not mopey,” she shot back, proving that she was in fact mopey.

“Says the girl who already downed a bottle of champagne before the first dance is over.” I glanced at her, and her eyes fell on me. In that moment, I knew why she was upset. I looked at Jordan and Tom dancing and then back at Katherine. I squeezed her into a half-ass hug and said, “Think of it this way, beautiful. You didn’t lose a friend. You gained me.”

She laughed while elbowing me in the stomach, and said, “I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.”

Katherine continued to laugh until she caught my eye. I leaned in close to her, slowly brushing my nose against her cheek until my lips reached her ear. The breath caught in her throat.

“I’ll prove to you how good it can be.”

Series Review:

4 stars

Loved all the books in this series. I did snuggle to get through the first one thou. But once a pushed myself through it, I never looked back. I’m so glad I didn’t DNF it. I would have missed out on meeting some really great characters then. Loved hearing all the characters stories and seeing how they overlapped with each others. Who doesn’t love a cowboy?

Can’t wait for the next book in the series.
