Back Cover Blurb:

He wasn't looking for love

Fun-loving Arizona rodeo cowboy Porter Cash has always been more interested in having a good time than a steady paycheck. But to realize his dream of owning his own ranch, Porter needs this new job delivering roughstock to rodeos. What he doesn't need is a too-serious, too-smart and too-sexy-for-her-own-good copilot on the trip.

When savvy insurance adjuster Wendy Chin joins Porter for the haul, she is all work and no play. But soon, business turns to pleasure and Wendy is conflicted. Her heart wants Porter, but her strict Chinese-American parents will never support the match. Can Porter find a way to prove to Wendy that, when it comes to love, he's not fooling around?

My Review:

This was an intriguing novel. Thomas captured my attention with the variety of different components in the story. Mystery and romance combine in a natural manner, becoming part of the lives of the characters.

I definitely felt for Porter. He’s a really good guy just trying to find his way. Contrasted with Wendy, who finds herself stuck between a rock and a hard place, you have a winning pair of main characters. I will admit that there were times throughout where they both annoyed me a little. I wanted to tell them both to grow up and stand on their own, yet at the same time, I fully understood where they were coming from. Thomas developed them in such a way that you couldn’t fail to understand them.

As a whole, I quite enjoyed this novel. It was a sweet read with that hint of something more. It wasn’t my first novel by Thomas, nor will it be my last.
