Buckling Down by Moira Keith

Levi is in Vegas with one simple goal: cement his place in rodeo history. Then Lady Luck throws a wild card. Time hasn’t dulled of his attraction to Sidney, but will always be forbidden fruit. Sydney’s ready to give up on love…until Levi walks into her bar…

Strong, Silent Type by Lorelei James

Quinn can’t believe his wife’s “trial separation is dragging on for a coon’s age. Libby knows, he’s not prone to showing his feelings, but it looks like he’d rather hold onto his pride than to her. One weekend of uninterrupted sexual decadence with him is tempting…but will it solve anything?

The Real Deal by Niki Green

When Willa looks out into the crowd during her burlesque act and sees a familiar face staring back, her past comes crashing down around her. Chase has some hard questions for the former love of his life, and he wants answers—even if he has to throw her over his shoulder and drag her back home…

My rating:

The Good:
Strong Silent Type by Lorelei James
Loved it from beginning to end, despite the rather selfish heroine who was too blind to see what was right in front of her eyes, and the disastrous marital communication skills.

The Bad:
The Real Deal by Niki Green
I kept wondering just who exactly was the hero of this story and if the story actually had a purpose, beside working as introduction into a spawning series. The hero and heroine don't meet until almost the middle of the book, the two younger brothers have more screen time than the H/h, the heroine's reason for jilting her fiancé was idiotic...

The Mediocre:
Buckling Down by Moira Keith
It wasn't bad, but it wasn't particularly good, either. Quite slow and choppy with a rather redundant supporting cast.
