Jared Walker is a single dad who knows what it’s like to be burned by a woman. His ex-wife tormented him in a way that’s unforgivable. It makes sense that Jared doesn’t trust women.

Hope Lambert has one goal in life. To keep Dead Heat Ranch prospering. From sun up to sun down, she has a single-minded focus working alongside her four sisters, the job isn’t always easy, but it’s definitely worth it. Hope is convinced she needs nothing more than what’s right in front of her. Until he walks into the stable.
It’s easy to think you know what’s best for you. That is until your heart is put to the test. What happens when the cautious cowgirl and the sexy single dad come face to face? The chemistry threatens to scorch them both. Giving in is easy. Not falling in love is the hard part.
This novel is a Coyote Ridge/Dead Heat Ranch crossover.

Jared has been burnt before, and he’s not looking for a love match. He knows that taking care of his son Derrick is his main priority. When Travis puts Jared in charge of the Walker family reunion, he wasn’t prepared for Hope Lambert. She’s feisty, sexy and temptation all rolled up into a cowgirl with a hat and a smile. When the heat between them leads to a “friends with benefits” arrangement, will both end up for more than they bargained for?
“They were players, Hope. Every last one of them.”
“Until they set their sights on someone. And help me, it’s so worth it. They’re relentless when they want something. Just ask Zoey or V or Kennedy or Jessie or Kylie.”
“And God, you can only hope that one of them doesn’t set his sights on you. You won’t survive it.”
Jared’s story is just incredibly sweet. I feel like with this book we got a step back into the Alluring Indulgence series. It was so wonderful to have the Walkers in there so I got all of my favorite men. When Hope and Jared met, we had that hot, intense connection we all expect with the Walker men. These guys know how to lay down some dirty talk and when they find that woman that they can’t get enough of, they know how to hang on tight and keep them around. There’s some drama that tries to get in between Jared and Hope, but Jared is a strong guy and can handle it. With the Walker family and Travis on his side, there’s nothing that the two of them can’t overcome. It’s just another great story set in Coyote Ridge and Dead Heat Ranch.
What I even like more is I’ve read most of Nicole Edwards’ books, but I haven’t read the Dead Heat Ranch series. Just reading about the sisters in this crossover book made me want to know more about the Lambert family. I never knew I was missing out on something!
