Review by: Mistflower

Rebecca Prentice has always been the obedient daughter of a political figure. It’s hard being perfect―and boring. It’s time for a change. So, when her girlfriends plan to check out local bars using different personas, Rebecca calls herself Reb and goes looking for fun. But when she meets a bad-boy musician in a biker bar, she gets a lot more than she bargained for.

Mick has a secret. He doesn’t live on the wild side. However, if that’s what it takes to keep the beautiful and exciting Reb in his life, this straight-arrow tax attorney is ready to take her on the ride of her life.

But what happens when the truth comes out?

The synopsis is straight forward. My interest was sparked after I read it so if it intrigues you then try reading it for yourself. This romance was a fun read full of miscommunications, misunderstandings, and a few left-out details between the hero and the leading lady. I was pleased with the writing style because all too often romance stories with these types of conflicts can make me want to bang my head against the wall but not in this book. I was able to read this story pretty fast thanks to the character development, smooth pace and contemporary setting.

The heroine, Rebecca aka Reb, was entertaining when she was with her group of friends. They were relatable and well-developed characters. I’d love to read a book for each of Reb’s friends. They were kind, supportive and loyal friends. Reb is lucky to have caring parents as well. It was easy for me to like Rebecca and want to see her happily ever after.

The hero, Mick. Ooh la la. He was dreamy. When Mick and Reb got together, I had to lower the Air Conditioner. They were immediately attracted to each other, and their romance was sensual throughout the story.

There were a few interesting plot threads that came along that kept me turning the pages. One in particular had me feeling like Mick was a real hero as he saved Reb from danger. I think that is when Reb and I fell in love with him.

It was nice to read a story where the leading couple didn’t have any issues within themselves that had to be resolved before they could open their hearts to each other. It was a nice change of pace to only have misunderstandings and miscommunications to hurdle over.

I recommend bringing this book to the beach or pool while drinking a yummy cocktail. I hope you enjoy Rebel Heart as much as I did.

One man. One town. One almost forgotten crime. When the stranger who has answered the ad for the teaching position at Kecking Horse School climbs down from the stage on a sleepy Montana afternoon, things are about to change.

This is an cialis lowest prices oral tablet and it contains similar name substance too.
With Virgil Watt, cowboy, horse-breaker and the first black man in the history of the town by his side, the stranger quickly upsets the tranquility of the town’s leading citizens, administers a vicious beating to a couple of the town’s toughs and sets out to avenge a long neglected wrong. A reader of books, a lover of laughter, a lawman/lawbreaker with a .44 strapped to his leg–he is the man called Teacher.

This is really an easy and quick read. It was quick because I just couldn’t seem to put it down. I love westerns and this was a good entry into the genre. It’s a story told by what I first pictured as a rancher on the porch. A grizzled old rancher. As I got into the story, I realized the POV of the story (my narrator) was coming from a man who lived with his mama and worked in the general store, one of the few stores that exist in Kecking Horse. I’ll call my storekeeper the man from Kecking Horse because if the author ever actually had anyone call him by name, I can’t remember it.

There are a lot of good old stories like this and it’s true I enjoy them all. But this one’s a little different. The narrator of the story seems as if he’s right on the porch with you recalling something that happened in his life. The plot of the story is somewhat different as teachers usually weren’t tough guys back in the days of the old west. Teachers were usually women and not the ones carrying the guns. There is also some humor in this story. There would have to be in a town called Kecking Horse. A town named only because someone couldn’t spell. But the ability to keep the reader so drawn to the story must be in the writing. The same writing that made Teacher and the man from Kecking Horse seem real. Made the man from Kecking Horse’s narration help you see the characters and walk back through his life.
