Bad boys are the best kind of trouble...
Kindergarten teacher Jenna Justice has lived her life by the book—right school, right career, right image. Too bad the townsfolk of Diamond, Kansas, have a hard time forgetting that she wasn’t born on the right side of the tracks. The only way J.J. can land her dream job is to keep her wild side buried and her reputation clean. But when she finds herself in another town, one without prying eyes, she allows herself one fantasy-filled night with her best friend’s bad boy brother.
Professional bull rider Colt McCade is grounded for the summer with an injury. After their sizzling night together, he finds himself wanting to pick up where he and the prim and not-so-proper Ms. Justice left off. Problem is, she isn’t interested in his idea of “healing,” which involves ice cubes and a whole lot of heavy breathing. But the closer he gets, the more he sees that his fast-and-loose reputation could cost her the job of her dreams. He wants to do the right thing, but walking away from her could cost him everything…
I would love professional bull riders if I met a bull rider like Colt. He is just the epitome of sexy bad boy with a sweet side stuck in the middle. J.J. and Colt are the complete opposites when it comes to responsibility and maturity in some ways. J.J. is the always perfect, always striving to be the best when Colt doesn’t care what anyone thinks or says but when they meet, something about themselves breaks apart.
You see J.J. giving in the temptation that is Colt McCade and letting her wild side be released. Although, after the night spent with him, she clams back up waiting to keep her reputation perfect. Colt could care less what the town thinks of him but he slowly starts to care what the town thinks of J.J. His protecting sides flairs when rumors start to fly.
I love that Colts does whatever he can to keep J.J. happy; even if that means walking away so she can be protected. *Sigh*
Joya Ryan has set up some great secondary characters that I can’t wait to delve into.
