Tied Up, Tied Down by Lorelei James
Hot, Sexy and Determination...
"Businesswoman Skylar Ellison is firmly in control of her life. So getting tangled up with a sexy Wyoming cowboy — and conceiving a baby in the parking lot of a honky-tonk — wasn’t in her plan. Since it appears the daddy has taken off for greener pastures, the only thing to do is pull up her bootstraps and carry on alone.
Cattle rancher Kade McKay returns home after a year on the range, and is knocked for a loop when he learns he’s the father of a three-month-old baby girl. When Skylar refuses to marry him, Kade grits his teeth, moves in and plays house by her rules to prove he’s a man in for the long haul.
Despite Skylar’s insistence they are to remain strictly parenting partners, their old passions flare hot as a brush fire, spurring Kade to demand absolute sexual surrender from the headstrong woman. Skylar willingly submits her body to the hot-blooded cowboy but she’s leery of handing Kade the reins to her heart.
Can Kade convince Skylar the wicked sex games aren’t a temporary distraction? Or will he have to bust out the ropes to show her he wants to be tied to her…forever?"
Kade starts out on the wrong foot, then finding out his is a father, Kade decides he wants it all. Sky ends up finding out the hard way that Kade is in fact not only the cowboy she not needs, but craves oh so desperately.
This story was thick with emotions. Finding out the mother of your child pretty much did this on her own while you weren't around. Then coming to find out that instead of going away to forget her, had you been home you would have been there every step of the way. Now Kade is not out only to prove he can provide for their daughter but make them last forever.
Although something was missing for me in this book, it was still an amazing rollercoster for Kade and AJ. Now on to Rough, Raw and Ready.
