Cowgirl Up and Ride by Lorelei James
Let's start with Cord and AJ... my first thought was NO WAY... but then it was all the wayyyyyyy!! Eeekkk !! One cowboy I wanted to saddle up ....
"...Ridin’ the edge of lust is fun—until someone falls in love.
Goody-two boots AJ Foster has waited her entire life for her dream cowboy Cord McKay to see her as more than the neighbor girl in pigtails. Now that she’s old enough to stake her claim on him, she’s pulling out all the sexual stops and riding hell-bent for leather—straight for his libido.
Divorced rancher Cord has sworn off all women…until innocent AJ suggests he teach her how to ride bareback—and he realizes she doesn’t mean horses or bulls. Between his responsibilities running his massive ranch, missing his young son and dealing with the sexual shenanigans of his brother and cousins, Cord is more than willing to take AJ up on her offer. On a trial basis.
The fun and games tie them both up in knots. AJ isn’t willing to settle for less than the whole shootin’ match with her western knight. But for Cord, even though the sexy cowgirl sets his blood ablaze, he’s determined to resist her efforts to lasso his battered heart.
Sweet, determined AJ has the power to heal—or heel—the gruff cowboy…unless Cord’s pride keeps him from admitting their relationship is more than a simple roll in the hay."
Fell in love with single father Cord. The perfect man was missing life and was able to find that in long time family friend, AJ. Not only does this series get better and better, but you became attached to these characters that you want the best for.
Lorelei James brings out some serious emotions and a tad bit of heartbreak but it is not all clouds and sun on this ranch. Not only wicked hot but the story just kept on going to draw you in deep into the McKay family. I loved AJ, admired her spunkiness and the fact she wasn't afraid to tell Cord off a time or three. AJ never sold herself short, it was all or nothing. But what will she finally choose? It will be hard decision to give up what she wanted the most. Cord only to wake up at the thought he might lose her, and pulled out everything he was holding inside to make them right.
I'm not sure if anyone can top Cord and AJ after this lovin' on the ranch, but I am looking forward to the next book in the series ,Tied Up, Tied Down.
