Against the Wall by Rebecca Zanetti- Six Sentence Bookish Thoughts

What Against the Wall is about:
Never challenge a cowboy in the courtroom…Surveying the proposed site for a high-end golf course should have been a breeze for spunky Landscape Architect Sophie Smith. But when this born-and-bred city girl is suddenly—and quite literally—swept off her feet by a sexy cowboy on horseback, she realizes that the country life has some serious (and seriously steamy!) possibilities. That is, until she finds out exactly who her smokin’-hot wrangler really is.Cowboy and Tribal lawyer Jake Lodge is desperately trying to block the development. And if that means playing hardball—and being every inch the shark lawyer—so be it. But Sophie is a distraction he didn’t expect. A distraction that makes his blood burn.

No one that has been reading my blog will be surprised that I enjoy a racy novel or two three from time to time. I decided to take my chances and request Against the Wall because I love cowboys and most especially cowboys that are also Indians with long black hair, chiseled bodies, eyes you can get lost in,  and ICE, I need ICE in here!! Sorry, I get a bit carried away, now where was I? The story was good, the characters were actually pretty well developed, and I loved the family dynamics. The connection between Jake and Sophie was intense, but it was also filled with tenderness and a sense of fun!

Recommend? I most certainly would, especially to my friends that are looking for new authors to explore who deliver a contemporary romance with quality writing!

    I recently bought a Jill Shalvis book to try. I am not big on contemporary romance, but it's been awhile since I actually read one. Not that she has anything to do with cowboys. Right now I'm spending quite a bit of time with Highlanders actually . . .
