BOOTS AND THE ROGUE
BOOTS AND THE ROGUEMYLA JACKSON
Posted: July 8, 2015
There’s more than one way to feed a hungry man.
Ugly Stick Saloon, Book 10
Brody McFarlan left home eight years ago after he and his younger brother had a falling-out over a girl. When a frantic phone call sends him racing home, he’s astounded to learn the truth. Mom isn’t sick, she’s threatening to sell the ranch—unless he and his brothers get busy settling down.
With Mom on strike, Brody uneasily settles in to help—and find a replacement cook before he starves.
Fired from her last job, Jessie Taylor is forced to ride out on her horse, leaving her car behind. Hot, tired and homeless, she stumbles onto the Ugly Stick Saloon, grateful to pick up a spatula in trade for a burger to fill her belly and a much-needed rest for her road-weary mount.
One bite of Jessie’s tasty burger, and Brody offers the rough-and-tumble blonde a job and a stall. It doesn’t hurt that she’s sexy as hell, and he hungers for a taste of her sweet pink mouth. The only bur under his saddle is the grudge he still carries…and the fear that his brother will once again swoop in to steal the pretty filly right out from under him.
Warning: Burning hunger lights fires in the kitchen, the barn, the pasture, and more when another McFarlan brother bites the romantic dust in the sexiest possible way.
Jessie Taylor was a girl with her horse who
was just looking for a place to call home.
You see her mom left them when she was 4. Her daddy did the best he could but he was a
foreman on a large spread. The thing was
they didn’t own the house that she grew up in.
It was part of the perks of the job.
So, when her father had a heart attack 2
years ago she had to vacate the home.
From there out she had been looking for a decent job. She was more comfortable doing outdoor so
called guys work on a ranch than indoor girl stuff. Well, it turns out she had to leave this last
job on short notice. Do to the owner and
his making passes at her all the time.
She always deflected his advances but this
time they were caught during the cat and mouse fight. So, she was the one fired because the wife
said so. Since she didn’t have a trailer
to take her horse she rides him off the ranch after she collects what little
she could carry in a duffle bag. After 8
hours of riding trying to get the farthest away from her old boss as she could and
his old haunts. She ends up behind the
Ugly Stick Saloon.
She needed to get her and her horse Scout
some water. When the back door opens and
the very pregnant owner sees her. Audrey
Anderson says if she tosses the trash bag in the bin she had been dragging out
into the trash she would pay her $20.00 and the horse and she could have all
the water they wanted. Of course that is
a no brainer Jessie does it for nothing but the water. Once inside Audrey hires her for the night to
B-B-Q since they are short a cook.
That is when she meets Brody McFarlan the
long lost brother to Colin and Angus who moved away eight years ago. With his mama laying down the law they needed
a new cook since their mama’s not cooking for them. When he sees that Jessie can cook B-B-Q he
gets an idea. But first he is hungry so
he stands in line but this big huge guy gets there first. Jessie has her back to them so the big guy
says he wants some food. She looks over
her shoulder and states that they needed to sit down that the waitresses will
wait on them and that she can’t give them the food from where they are at they
were for other customers.
She was able to handle herself and the
waitress came to her aide too. The whole
time Brody had been checking her out and how sexy she looking in her Annie Oakley
back to business he wants to hire her.
But he uses the wrong wording and she punches him in the eye and knocks
him out cold. The brothers are laughing
at him but thinks she will be perfect, after the punch he’s not so sure. But when Chemistry hits and they kiss he is
The next morning does not go as planned
she burns the pancakes but their mama on the sly helps her out. Their chemistry only gets bigger but he had
promised not to kiss her again. He does
whisper in her ear, “You can’t cook can you?”
This is a very cute short. Sexually charged yet not overly erotic yet
you feel what they feel for each other.
This has a family saga which you know I love and the characters are
extremely loveable and funny. I give
this 4 stars. Provided by
