Just for an instant their gazes connect, then he’s gone. Barrel racer Trish Barton wants to find that mysterious man in black who, in brief seconds, pushed all her buttons. A born submissive, she sees herself on her knees before him, bound by the lasso he’d held in his hand.

Jake Keenan will never forget that one brief glimpse of the woman who set him on fire, a woman he’d give anything to master. How could she have taken root in his dreams after that one brief glimpse?

Then Fate throws them together and gives them the opportunity to fully explore the Dom/sub connection they crave. But Trish isn’t yet ready to give up the rodeo circuit, much to Jake’s dismay. How can he convince her she can both her career and a relationship with him?

Trish is an up and coming barrel racer focused on her career. However, in this love at first sight short, the chemistry between Trish and Jake sizzles and she finds herself trying to decide between her love life and her career.

Fate has somehow chosen for them. In addition to Trish being a barrel racer she’s also a submissive. Luckily for her, Jake is a Dom. I liked that their passion and chemistry is given chance to grow. So often, couples in this situation try to separate their public and private lives but, Trish and Jake are given a chance to be a couple, a sub and her master. And for those who may be wondering if it will be a happily ever after, I assure you it is. Trish and Jake actually make it to that point but not without the normal relationship pitfalls.

As with every Desiree Holt book I’ve read, there’s more that happens than just the impossible-to-ignore-passion that they have going for each other. I have read many Desiree Holt books but this was my first in the Rawhide series. I look forward to checking out the others after this one.

What I appreciated about reading this book was, even though it’s part of a series and there are obviously characters from previous books present, it didn’t hinder or confuse me. This book is totally about Trish and Jake and it could be read as a stand-alone. An easy recommend for readers who don’t have much time but love a good hot read.


  1. I loved this story. I read it three times and it gets hotter every time I read it. I love everything Desiree writes!! This story makes me want to find a cowboy that’s great with a rope!!
