Blake Coleman is old enough to know that acting on impulse causes nothing but a heap of trouble. But when trouble’s a blonde wearing a cowboy hat with slim legs that go on forever, what’s a man to do? Wanting the sweet girl next door is just wrong. Hell, he was the one that taught her to ride a horse and now all he can think about is riding her. The responsible thing to do is keep his hands off. Jaxi has other plans for his hands, and his heart. She may have considered Blake a big brother once but that was a long time ago. She’s all grown up now and ready to convince him that she’s just what he’s been waiting for.Add the complication of two sexy younger brothers who have suddenly noticed Jaxi and things heat up fast. Blake’s gonna have to decide if a little trouble is worth fighting for.


Jaxi has always had it bad for Blake Coleman. She’s pretty much been included in all Coleman family gatherings since she’s moved to town, which for her is a good thing now that she’s an adult. She couldn’t give a flip that there is a 10 year age difference between them at all.  But then there is Blake….
Blake is completely attracted to Jaxi and has been for a long time. But he thinks that the difference in their ages is a bad thing and is doing his damnedest to keep his attraction under wraps.  He thinks he can be a better “Big Brother” to Jaxi than a lover.  He also thinks that he’s going to be playing second fiddle to his brother Travis, who Jaxi has dated in the past.  On top of Travis, his youngest brothers Jesse and Joel are sniffing around and things are a bit tense around the ranch.

Oh how the mighty have fallen….

After a BIG fight between Jaxi and Blake and a CRAZY game of pool Jaxi FINALLY get’s what she wants…Blake. Jaxi 1 Blake 0!

What I really liked about this story was that it felt real all around. All the characters, dialogue and situations to me felt like they were real and not just thrown together.  Another thing that I really liked about this book was that the story wasn’t rushed.  I thought that the speed and the way the book flowed really worked for me.  Plus, as an added bonus the other brothers make appearances in the book as build up to future books in the series.

The issue that I had with the book was at some points in the book some of the “sexual” situations seemed a little rushed.  Not all the time just a few instances. Then there were some of the spelling differences, I’m from the States and I’m not sure where the author is from but some of the spellings for certain words where different from what I’m used to.  Though this is included in the “negative” section of the review it wasn’t a REAL “negative,” just different is all.

Overall, I think that this is a great beginning to this series.  I’ve already started the second book (Rocky Mountain Haven) and I’ve pre-ordered the third book (Rocky Mountain Desire) which is available March 13, 2012.
