Welcome to Sugarbeat’s Books – The Home of the Romance Novel!
Welcome to Series Sunday!
My favorite day of the week, because I get to post a review for my personal favorite type of book – a book that is written as part of a series! For the past few weeks we have been working our way through the latest series written by Vicki Lewis Thompson – The Sons of Chance series. As you’ll read at the end of this post, I thought the series was done with this book, but a bomb is dropped at the end of the story that makes it clear that there is more to come. There isn’t anything on Ms. Thompson’s website, but she can’t possibly leave us hanging like this!! I’ll just have to post a review for the next book whenever I can get my hands on it.
For today, sit back and enjoy Cowboys Like Us!
Cowboys Like Us by Vicki Lewis Thompson
Release: Aug 2011
Publisher : Harlequin Blaze
Source : Netgalley
Real cowboys aren’t born. They’re made…
Logan Carswell has just kissed his professional baseball career goodbye. Goodbye dreams, career and future. For now, though, he’s working at the Last Chance Ranch and the town saloon, where sexy bartender Caro Davis is definitely taking his mind off his troubles…
Caro’s days have been so hectic, she’s forgotten all about the finer aspects of life. Like men. And sex. And really smokin’-hot sex with men like Logan. But when their two worlds collide—and boy, do they ever collide—they both realize that once the gear is off, a cowboy is still a cowboy!
Vicki Lewis Thompson shoots another one out of the park with this latest episode in the Last Chance Ranch saga!
Logan Carswell was in town for the wedding of his best friend, Alex Keller’s wedding to Tyler. Logan is recovering from an injury to his knee that has ended his professional baseball career. Still dealing with the pain, and still searching for what he’s going to do next, he decides to get away from Chicago (and the press) for a while and take some R&R in Shoshone, Wyoming. While at the wedding he flirts with bartender Caro Davis. Caro is bartending at night and visiting with her grandmother during the day. She has recently had to put her grandmother in a home and her grandmother isn’t settling in too well. This creates alot of stress and guilt for Caro. Josie, the owner of Spirits and Spurs, where the reception is being held, is married to Jack Chance – a relationship that was featured in another book in this series. Caro isn’t opposed to some fun with Logan as long as he is in town, but it looks like he isn’t in town for long. Will the magic of the Last Chance Ranch work on this couple?
I have been really enjoying this series of Vicki Lewis Thompson’s. It has cowboys, it has sizzling sex, and the books are all well written. Some of the heros are a bit damaged, some of the heroines need a bit of TLC, but all of the matches are good ones. In this story, Logan Carswell is the damaged one. Searching for the “what next” now that his knee is damaged to the point that he won’t be able to continue his career. He finds what he needs in Caro. Caro is a simple woman who has always put her grandmother first. Logan helps her see how family can be important, just not all consuming. I loved how these two characters are written so that they work together well. The chemistry between them sizzles from the beginning and sets sparks off the pages.
This is yet another great story in this series. Although I though this would be the last one, there is a bomb that is dropped at the end that makes it obvious that this series is not done yet!
