Nothing But Trouble by Lisa Mondello
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Who can resist a tough, rugged cowboy? Definitely not me, and Stoney Buxton is perfect for the role. Bring on the fantasies.
In Nothing But Trouble, Melanie is trying to get away from her suffocating parents and make it on her own. She needs to prove to them, as well as herself, that she can face the world and come out on top despite her medical condition holding her back.
Stoney sees Melanie as the spoiled little rich girl and wants nothing to do with helping her. He has his own problems with a ranch to run, bills to pay, and rodeos to ride. When she makes him an offer he would be stupid to refuse, they find themselves alone in the mountains of Wyoming. But Stoney is your typical cowboy, stubborn and prideful, and Melanie has a stubborn streak of her own.
I love Stoney and Melanie together. Despite some stupid choices, mostly on Melanie's part, and some pigheadedness, mostly on Stoney's part, the chemistry between the two was fabulous. There was sexual attraction between the pair right from the start, which helped build their relationship over the next few weeks. I love that we got to see Stoney's point of view as well as Melanie's. Knowing what he was thinking and feeling helped build the suspense to the point of them finally breaking, and the ending was perfect. I loved it!
I received a free copy of this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.
