Erotic Romance, Western Romance
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'd say that I definitely enjoyed this book. It was fun to read. A light story to fill an afternoon.
Ally butted heads with Matt even before she got home to Wyoming. She came home to check on her father and found he'd made some changes at the Circle K Ranch. Namely, one slow talking cowboy foreman, Matt Gentry. Matt and Ally share a sizzling chemistry, and they try to fight it for a whole day.
But Ally couldn't keep herself from being suspicious of Matt. I felt that she was rude and intrusive. I tried to see what Matt found so hard to resist about her, but I just couldn't. Maybe she'd been in the big city too long, or maybe she was just suspicious by nature. Whatever it was, she hurt Matt even when she tried to do the right thing.
Matt kept regretting some awful, unforgivable thing he did in the past. Something so bad that it would keep Ally from wanting him. He ran away from his life, back to Wyoming, the place he'd been happy as a boy. I was thinking whatever happened must've been pretty bad, after what he said to Ally. However, when the truth came out, his reasons just seemed lame. It was a tragic event, but I found it unbelievable that Matt blamed himself for the way it happened. To be truthful, it spoiled the credibility of the story somewhat.
This is romance land....so happy ever after is a given. It's the road to it that makes a story interesting. This road didn't have near as many roadblocks as I would have liked, but it was still a good ride.
I'm giving this cowboy romance 3 stars. I recommend this one for contemporary fans interested in a lighter read.

I'll be honest, I am a big fan of contemporary western romances…and books like TAKE ME HOME, COWBOY are the reason. This is my first book by author Krista Ames and I was very impressed that she puts such a delightful twist on old favorite—big city girl returns to her roots where she discovers love.
This is a very sweet and touching romance between two people that soon discover an attraction through sexual tension. The author was even able to turn something that normally completely repulses me – characters who keep secrets from each other – into something wonderful. Matt never let his secret get in the way of his character or his genuine feelings for Ally; you could feel the very deep emotional connection between the characters,
I could go on and on about this book, but it's better for you to just go buy it and then read it.
