Back Cover Blurb:

The lone cowboy.

Damon Harrison never gets too involved. A cowboy at heart, Damon has turned his commitment phobia into a living flipping houses. The only exceptions to that rule? His foster family at Thunder Mountain Ranch. And now those  exceptions have talked Damon into working on a new project with a carpenter named Phil.

Only, Phil is a nickname for Philomena Turner. She has a wicked way with carpentry and an even wickeder way of turning Damon's head. And the chemistry is like a lightning bolt of lust. But Phil wants a family and a home, and no hotshot cowboy even a tantalizingly sexy one will change that. All she can steal are a few nights of sizzling passion before she has to set this lone cowboy free.

My Review:

I’ll admit it. I’ve been dying to read this novel since the foreshadowing at the end of Midnight Thunder, the 1st novel in the series, but even without that, this was an absolutely fantastic novel. The quick recap of key points in the previous novel is through Damon reminiscing, allowing new readers to enter the series without boring returning readers. Thompson takes off with a flair that kept me on my toes, building a story based on so much more than simple romance. I enjoyed getting a closer look at Thunder Mountain Ranch, all the while enjoying a fantastically heated read.

Phil and Damon were an unlikely yet fantastically compatible couple. The sparks that flew between them definitely made the pages sizzle. At the same time, the genuine caring and bonding was fantastic. The look at Cade & Lexi’s continually developing relationship really tied it all together for me. Sure, I loved seeing & getting to know Damon & Phil, but getting up close with everyone else as well really drew in the big picture.

This series just keeps getting better and better. Once again Thompson had me hooked throughout, creating a wildly romantic and endlessly engaging budding romance that left me dying for more.
