Red Hot Rancher by Marie Johnston is an Adult Contemporary Romance out now!
“Full-time fireman and part-time rancher Caleb is living the bachelor’s dream and staying rent-free in his best friend’s place. Too bad it’s because he lost his house to a tornado and his best friend’s sister is the one that got away. At least she doesn’t visit often—the last thing he needs is to show her she was right about him: he’s going nowhere fast. But when her cheating fiancé kicks her out, she has no place to go except her brother’s suddenly too-crowded ranch house.
After a streak of bad decisions, Brigit has to slink back home to nurse her wounds and find a job. To complete her humiliation, there’s no way she can avoid the first love she walked away from years ago—because he’s sleeping on the other side of her wall. At least it’s only a matter of time before she’s gone again. After all, there’s nothing in this town for her but bullies and cow patties…except a fireman in cowboy boots who melts her heart and makes her consider love again.
He’s not leaving. She’s not staying. If the reason they can’t be together is so simple, why is it so hard to remember?”

*Disclaimer: I requested a free copy of this book from Inkslinger in exchange for an honest review. All my reviews contain my honest opinions only and are not influenced in any way.*
The male character in this story is what sold me. A cowboy AND a rancher? Yes, please.
This is a romance that can’t be stopped, even after all those years trying to keep the two apart. It’s full of lust, heartbreak, and fun. The plot has a small town, mid-western vibe that I really liked, and surrounded a realistic situation that was very relatable.
The characters went really well together and created a story that I enjoyed reading from start to finish. I haven’t read the first installment in the series, so I can’t comment too much on that, but I think there is a lot to this couple that I would’ve like to have seen more of.
I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars. There is a bit of predictability in the story, but overall, the romance made this a fun, easy read for me. I would recommend this one for readers who love reading close-knit attraction and whose main male character leaves you steaming over.
