Synopsis from Harlequin Books:

Which, to rancher Holden McCall, makes her the perfect tool to exact his secret revenge.

This book is a 2 story in one book and I’m reviewing just the first one for now. The genres are western romance, fiction, and contemporary.

My Experience: I started reading Rancher’s Wild Secret on 11/26/2019 and finished it on 11/29/2019. This book is my first adult romance read and it was great! Emerson’s dad is funny with his comment on the pound sign instead of hashtags. My thought exactly when I first saw it years ago. I like the fast paced and easy to read writing style. Adult romance sure don’t beat around the bushes. They go after what they want. It reminds me of why I prefer to read YA because I enjoyed the shyness and flirt. I like the forbidden love though the love and the sex happen pretty quick. The dual perspectives was good and honest. A short quick read.

This book is told in the third person point of view following Emerson, 29 ambassador of her family’s wine brand. She’s feeling bored at her family vineyard’s launch party, especially feeling weary about her impending arranged marriage. The alternative view was Holden, wealthiest developer. He came to work on the ranch for Emerson’s dad and to revenge. Emerson’s dad was the one who ruined someone Holden cares for. They ended up working together because of a new business idea. Emerson and Holden has an instant attraction but she’s currently engaged while he wanted revenge.

Book 2, Hold Me, Cowboy

The second story was an excellent read as well. The story followed Madison West who had her heart broken at 17, 10 years ago by her trainer. She also had some daddy issues that prevented her from getting close to another man. But it’s been 10 years after all and she is ready to go wild. She met a man and they have made plans to go on a mini getaway for an uninterrupted weekend. When she got there, a snow storm came and roads were closed. That guy couldn’t get there. To make matters worse, her electricity failed to turn on. She had to knock on the door next to her rental. To her surprise, the guy who answered was none other than Sam. Sam works for her dad. They have had a few exchanges but none were friendly. While they were snowed in, they got to know each other in unexpected ways. I liked the twists on Sam’s past.

Pro: fast paced, page turner, humor, family, forbidden love

I rate it 4 stars!
