His Wranglers fit him like a glove. A really tight, leaving nothing to the imagination, glove. Codie wants nothing more than to shove that Wrangler-covered butt straight into the mud.
Ace Valentine has a smart mouth, a devil-may-care attitude, and those wicked eyes aimed directly at her.
She doesn’t know what to do with that kind of attention. Especially not from the sweet-talking man that has no problem charming every woman that enters his orbit—everyone but her, at least.
Ace isn’t sure why Codie Spears had her panties in a twist when it comes to him, but every snub and insult she hurls his way brings him closer and closer to falling for her.
He’s not sure what it is about the town’s bad girl that draws his attention, but every encounter they have leaves him wanting her until there’s nothing else left to do but have her.
The only thing is, she’s been convinced by everyone around her that she’s not good enough. Tell a person that she’s a piece of trash enough times, and eventually she’ll start to believe it. It’s going to take a lot of smooth-talking and gentling on his part to get her to see that she’s worth it.
And once he has her where he wants her? Well, she’ll make a mighty fine rancher’s wife.
It as been a while since I have read a cowboy themed romance that I really enjoyed. When I found out that one of my favorite authors, Lani Lynn Vale was writing a series with cowboys I immediately thought I need to read this one asap. Herd That was funny, it was sexy, it has some of our favorite characters from other books written by Ms. Vale, but it also was emotional, heart breaking, and proves that sometimes all it takes is the right person to help heal old wounds.
Ace and Codie were a match made in heaven. She is sassy, he is stubborn, but together they just make each other better. I felt for both of them, when you read Herd That you will find out more about their pasts, one if you recognize the name you already know, but if not you learn the pain and heartache that is felt. I was cheering for Ace and Codie from the very start, and I must say, I called my grandpa Granddad like Codie does to hers in the book and it made me miss mine even more.
Herd That is the first book in this new series and I already can’t wait to get my hands on the next one. Lani Lynn Vale is one of my top most read authors and continues to be so. If you haven’t checked her out yet make sure you do because you will fall in love with her characters just like I have.
