My Description:

Daisy is a gorgeous, head strong, tell-it-like-it-is bartender of the Honky Tonk Beer Joint. Jarod is a handsome, tight jean wearin' loner back in town to help his 86 year old uncle
with his ranch.
One night they literally collide in the bar and the rest, well, the rest is a saucy,
toe-to-toe romance novel.

My Review:

I signed on to review this one a few months ago and also the next book in the series due out in August. So you will see a few more romance reviews from me this summer. I will probably still read some occasionally. I just won't be reviewing any more. I honestly can't resist a cover with a shirtless man.
Seriously. Where do the shirts go?
Who knows? Who cares?
It's apparently incredibly windy and shirts just fly off and that's okay with me.

(nervous cough)

Where was I?
Okay, so I really had fun with this book.
It was full of lusty daydreams, flirting adventures and sexy romps in the ol' hay.

The Honky Tonk Beer Joint is a dive bar full of cranky old men, flirty women and lots of beer flowing. Daisy is wicked and funny and holds her own. Jarod is equally full of piss and vinegar and their relationship sets sparks flying.

I kept hearing Toby Keith's song, "I Love This Bar" as I read it. For this country gal, it was really easy to slip into this small town beer joint community. The author slips in many a country reference with familiar songs and artists.

Rating: 5 stars/ 6 stars
I recommend this one for fans of contemporary western romances.
It had heart. It had sass. It had a lot of sparks and romance.
It had country music.
What more can I say?

Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!

I loved this book as well. I don't care where the shirts go as long as the men look like that!

It's hard not to love a good romance once in awhile, isn't it? Glad to hear you'll be reading some now and then.

Loved the review and the cover. There is just something hot about a cowboy with his shirt open.

I'm mesmerized by the hot cowboy. I'm a sucker for cowboys :)
