Genre: Contemporary Romance
Swathi’s Rating: 4/5
Welcome to Gold Valley, Oregon, where a rough-and-tumble rancher and the girl next door are about to learn that opposites attract
Olivia Logan has a plan: win back her ex by making him see what he’s missing. But first she needs to find a man who’s willing to play along. With his laid-back cowboy charm and knack for getting under her skin, Luke Hollister is an unlikely hero—but he wants her help convincing her father to sell him land, which means he needs her as much as she needs him.
Luke likes his life—and his women—uncomplicated. So why does good girl Olivia heat his blood like no one else? She’s always been off-limits, but the more time they spend as Gold Valley’s hottest new “couple,” the more real it’s starting to feel. Luke was supposed to help her win back another man…not keep her in his arms. But now that he has her there, he’s not sure he’ll ever let go.
I loved the plot – it had ‘fake date/relationship’ in its plotline. Smooth Talking Cowboy is the first book in the Golden Valley Series by American author Maisey Yates.
Olivia is a delicate young woman who dreams of marrying a cowboy one day and living her life in a farmhouse. She is elegant and fragile and freshly out of a relationship because her ex-boyfriend hadn’t ask to marry him. On the other hand, we have Luke – a ruggedly handsome man and a well known womanizer in the town and also close friends with the Dodge family. They are complete opposites yet everything changes with a single kiss that was meant to make ex-boyfriend Bennett jealous.
What follows is a series of cute fights and misunderstandings between the charming two that Maisey aces effortlessly. Lookout for the adorable epilogue. If you are a sucker for breathtaking erotica and cutish romance, then you can totally rely on Maisey and her books!
Mills and Boons had been my favorite publishers ever since my adolescence. They are probably a reason for my reading addiction. So glad to be associated on the blog tour with such a wonderful publishing house. Thanks so much for my copy and the blog tour spot.
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.
In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her backyard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.
