Praise for Lost Rider, Book 1:  “Sloan hits it out of the park with her first Coming Home contemporary western romance…Maverick is a perfect hero: multilayered, complicated, deeply damaged, yet blooming with the new promise of love. Leighton is appealing and real, as are a strong supporting cast of characters whom readers will be glad to follow into sequels. Sloan enhances the gripping story with country songs that open each chapter. This absolutely spectacular effort catapults Sloan to the top of her genre.” —Publishers Weekly (STARRED REVIEW)

“Sloan begins a new Western series with engaging characters and an appealing small-town setting; her second-chance-at-love romance resonates emotionally…Sloan knows her way around sexual tension and emotional intensity.”—Kirkus

 

Publisher’s Summary:
Hang on to your Stetsons this summer, because you’re in for one wild ride! Get lost in the second installment of New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan’s Coming Home series, KISS MY BOOTS. In the second installment, the wildest Davis of them all is looking for love…maybe.

Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always looked out for her. Of course, it doesn’t help that her heart has already been hardened when it comes to devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding back into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.

Growing up, the one time Tate ever truly felt at home was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his gram and paw’s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start—but if he’s being entirely honest, he’s not just back for the Wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend turned young love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past, but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty, who he did his best to forget, for him to realize just how much he’s been missing…

Can two people who have stopped believing in love take a chance to find it in each other again? Or will the pain of the past prove too great a hurdle to conquer?

Sensual Rating: Hot, sizzling with heat

My Thoughts: Whew!  This book isn’t what I expected at all.  Those Texan (at least in the book) have a very colorful vernacular, using four-letter words like raspberries on cereal!  So ladies, do not read this book with the mindset of a Regency read or any historical romance.  I wouldn’t even go for a contemporary romance.  This one borders on the edge of erotica.  It sizzles in its intensity. I did what any reader does who wants to experience another world—I cowgirled up and read it!

The story is written in first person in two points of view.  Some scenes are seen through Quinn’s, others through Tate’s.  In both cases, these two have been hurt from the past.  Quinn’s hurt lies in after years of friendship with Tate as young children, she gives herself to him.  She was 18.  Tate, too, gave himself to her, the first for both, with promises of a future together.  He was off to medical school. She never heard from him again. What do you think that did to her over-protective brothers Clay and Maverick, let alone Quinn? Take that and think Texan!

Tate loved Quinn from afar.  He had no choice but to break the relationship.  His reasons are heroic and I’ll leave that for the read. For Quinn it was simple.

“He taught me trust. He showed me love. Then he gave me pain.”

Quinn speaking to herself.

“I don’t deny I have issues, but I would be hard-pressed to find a single soul in the whole big-ass world who doesn’t. I’ve come a long damn way in working past those dang issues, too; then all it takes is one gusty blast from the past to kick up dust as a harsh reminder that you can polish the past until the wood shines, but the grime always settles back in.”

 

When Quinn finds out Tate is coming back to Pine Oak:

“It’s out of my system, thankfully before Tate returned, because the last thing I plan on showing him is how deeply I still feel the emptiness his departure left behind. Nope. He won’t get that. Quinn, the hell-raisin’ badass is back, and Tate Montgomery can kiss my boots.”

After nine long years, Tate has his chance to return to Pine Oak, to continue in his grandfather’s medical clinic.  He knows he’ll have to eat dirt with Quinn. He’ll grovel if he needs to.  He’s hurt Quinn badly.  How can a love be rekindled after that?

The plot is a good one, damaged people learning to trust again.  Texas drawls off the pages.  Characters are straight talkers, with dear Quinn and her friend Leighton talking straighter than most.  They shock me, at the same time get a giggle.  They both share in a wicked, twisted sense of humor.  Quinn takes on a challenge as if her life depends on winning. Leighton is the kind of forever friend who’ll support you whatever you decide.  She is the support Quinn needs so badly to weather the past, which also includes her mother walking away from the family when she was young.

The characters, in essence, begin mattering to you. Quinn’s attraction to Tate, Quinn’s relationship with her beloved brothers, Leighton’s supportive role getting Quinn to cowgirl up and show her stuff. (Don’t use stuff, change it to sh*t)  The story is littered with it. LOL!

I enjoyed the small-town feel, meeting some employees from the clinic, and the hysterically older Jana who works at the PieHole with Leighton, saying things one doesn’t even think!
