This is the first book I've read by Krista Ames and I really enjoyed it. It's set mostly on a ranch in Freewill, Wyoming. And it sounds like it would be a lovely place to visit. Keep an eye out for the office in the barn! Oh My! *grins*  I would prefer it to have more sex for carrying the erotic label, but it is still a SPICY read.  The pages are numbered on my review as 70 so it is a short read but I highly recommend it! It's well written and I was wrapped up in it from start to finish. Absolutely perfect for a lunch break read or any other time you have about an hr or so to go escape into a good book.

Ally has left Circle K Ranch to become a big city editor and has come home on a long overdue vacation. Her dad tricks her into coming for a visit. I absolutely LOVE that the does that. It really gave him an amazing character and to me really set the fun mood throughout the entire book. Ally can't except her Dad's choice in making Matt the Ranch Manager at all. And she can't help herself butting into it very chance she gets. Some of those were a little annoying but for the most part they are funny and truly sweet.

Matt is a man with a past he's not proud of and would rather forget about. But Ally just keeps pushing. He isn't looking for even a one night fling with a women let alone falling for the bosses daughter.  He really likes his boss and his job and doesn't want to screw it all up. I really like his boss too and wish there'd be another book dealing with him finding a new love as well. Matt is a total sweet sexual specimen  gentleman and his secrete doesn't get in his way of doing his job. But it does get in the way of being with Ally

 Eventually, it all comes out and neither one wants to accept it until it's of course too late to. But it's comes to a close with a really satisfying end. 
Ally Kincaid returns to Freewill, Wyoming, to see her father after a two year absence. Anticipating a quiet family reunion, she finds herself butting heads with her father’s foreman instead. The man’s arrogance and sexy drawl push all her buttons, making her wonder what he’s hiding beneath his cowboy swagger.

Matt Gentry walked away from the past and shies from the future. No ties means no one gets hurt…until the boss’s daughter, a hot, green-eyed blonde, tempts him to break his own rules.

When tragedy strikes, will building tension and pride destroy their growing attraction or show them the way home?

“I need to buy that man an answering machine.” Furious, Ally held the receiver away from her ear, eyes closed as the phone on the other end rang continuously. “Come on, Daddy, where are you?”

She was ready to hang up in frustration when the receiver was picked up and then—by the sound of the loud clanging on the other end—dropped.

“Circle K,” said the deep male voice rather breathlessly.

“Where in the world were you?”

“Excuse me?” the husky voice asked.

Oh crap, that’s definitely not Daddy. She’d been so surprised her call had finally been answered, she hadn’t realized there was nothing familiar about the voice at the end of the line “I’m sorry….” she cracked. Wow, where did that high-pitched squeak come from? “I’m sorry, who is this?”

“This is the Circle K Ranch. Who’s this?”

The man’s question held an impressive sexy drawl. Definitely not a voice she’d ever heard in New York City, and one she’d only be lucky enough to find in her dreams.

“I’d like to speak to Jesse Kincaid, please.” She did a mental inventory of all the ranch hands but couldn’t place the voice. And he obviously didn’t recognize hers either. Must be somebody new her father had hired since the last time she’d been there.

“Sorry, ma’am, he’s not here. What can I do for ya?”

“When will he be available, please?”

“Now, ma’am, I don’t guess I’m at liberty to say until I know exactly who it is I’m speaking at.”

God, men could be so arrogant. Why did he need to know who was calling? A simple answer would suffice.

“Not that it’s any of your business, but this is Ally Kincaid. Who exactly are you?”

“Well, well, isn’t this a nice surprise? Miss Ally Kincaid. Did your father know you’d be calling?

She gritted her teeth in frustration. Who does this cocky, know-it-all cowboy think he is?
