Cassie’s Cowboy Crave: Witness Protection – Rancher Style: Shane’s Story (Sweet Montana Bride Series, Book 3)

Cassie's Cowboy Crave

When Cassie was called to be a juror in the high profile case, she had no idea that she would be running for her life when the guilty verdict had been reached. Cassie was enjoying a meal with her best friends laughing and joking over a romance novel complete with a sexy cowboy on the cover, when she was whisked away by a detective and hauled off to Montana under witness protection, with the news that fellow jurors were being hunted and killed by the defendant’s family, the Lawson brothers. When her plane touched down in Montana and she was handed off to one gorgeous man, she thought life couldn’t get crazier, but life with this cowboy was anything but calm and normal.

Shane couldn’t be more irate; a stupid bet with his brothers had him driving to the airport to pick up yet another stray for the ranch. His family thought it was some kind of joke that they could trap him into a fake marriage to protect another woman that was being sent to their ranch in the witness protection program. He didn’t have time for this, he had a ranch to run and he didn’t need a woman underfoot. He knew his brothers had lucked out with the program and both had gotten smoking hot wives out of the deal, but what were the chances that he would have the same luck? As he drove up to the airport and saw the detective and the gorgeous woman in tow, he realized that maybe luck was on his side.

The chemistry was strong between Cassie and Shane, but was it the right time for either of them? Shane had just broken up with his girlfriend after he had proposed and she turned him down flat with ideas of making it big in the city. Cassie was in a strained long distance relationship with her boyfriend. Yet, neither one of them could ignore the passion between them and neither one could deny the feelings that went beyond the physical needs.

Of the three books in the series, this had to be my favorite. Cassie’s parents abandoned her long ago to live with her now deceased grandmother, so they could travel and give aide to “developing” countries. Her boyfriend took off to another country with a promise he would be back, a promise that had yet to be fulfilled. Cassie was used to being left on her own and never complained once about it, it was her life and that’s how it was supposed to be. Shane couldn’t wrap his head around this concept, his family was close they relied on each other and the love was strong. His concern for Cassie is so sweet and he wants to care for like she should be cared for. Cassie just wants to make sure that she isn’t a burden to anyone and she doesn’t want anyone’s pity. She’s so sweet and strong that you can’t help admire her, it makes you realize that you want to be like her: strong, independent, and yet still tender-not soured by the hand dealt to her. The scenes in the book are steamy and leave your heart pounding, but they never cross the line, it’s the perfect amount of romance and physical desire. Kimberly Krey writes a good story, and never disappoints. I will continue to look for her books and can’t wait to get my hands on her next one.

I received a free ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
