In this second of the sultry, Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily-ever-after—but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots?
Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.
The only place Tate Montgomery ever truly felt at home growing up was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his Gram and Paw’s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start—but if he’s being entirely honest, he’s not just back for the wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend-turned-young-love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past; but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty he did his best to forget for him to realize just how much he’s been missing….
As you may have read in my previous post on Lost Rider (#1 in the Coming Home Series), Harper Sloan has fuelled my infatuation with cowboys. So when I got the request to review both Kiss My Boots and Cowboy Up, you can imagine my delight.
And yes, we pick up after Maverick has made amends with his Leigh. His little sister Quinn (and Leigh’s BFF) is doing great in her auto repair shop. Never happier than when her hands are dirty from restoring great cars, like Bertha. (Quinn has the tendency to name cars, because “You’ve got to be on a first-name basis when you are working under someone’s hood”).
But then Tate Montgomery comes back to town… The only guy who Quinn has ever trusted and the one who betrayed her. After her mama leaving her, Tate promised he would always be there for her. And then he also left her…
So besides her overbearing brothers Clay and Mav, Quinn never trusted a guy ever since. But now Tate is back. And to make matters worse, he is a gynaecologist now and taking over the practice of his recent deceased Paw in Pine Oak. So, even with a broken hoohah (yep, it is what you think it is…), Quinn will end up with Tate, since there is no vagina doctor in a forty mile radius.
Tate is determined to convince Quinn to give him a second chance. But maybe, after she hears the truth about his leaving in the fist place, there will be no second chance. Or maybe Tate’s previous life will catch up with him.
Read on about the Davis family and their love life in the typical Harper Sloan’s way: with a laugh, a tear and some damp panties. Four out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Pocket Books and Netgalley for providing the arc. And I can’t wait to start on Cowboy Up, to read about Clayton.
