Title: LOVING CARA
Series: Love Under The Big Sky (#1)
Author: Kristen Proby
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Hosted by: Ink Slinger PR
In her sizzling new series, USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby sets the stage for a passionate reunion under the breathtaking Montana sky.
Cara Donovan’s summer tutoring job is turning out to be a challenge—and not just because of her troubled twelve-year-old student. It’s his uncle Josh who’s the real problem. If problem is the word for an irresistibly cocky, muscle-bound rancher with a taste for tight Levi’s and shameless flirtation. . . .
Cara is nothing like the wallflower Josh King remembers good-naturedly teasing in high school. This Cara is gorgeous, confident, fun. From the moment the fiery teacher steps foot on his family’s Lazy K Ranch, the stubborn playboy is determined to corral her. So what happens when his luscious lover takes over the reins?
The first in a steamy trilogy, Kristen Proby’s enthralling novel is filled to the brim with one hardworking family’s triumphs and challenges, all the wild adventure of the modern West, and a whole lot of titillating fun.
Oh. My. Lord. This book = Amazing!!!!! I’m kind of ashamed to say that although I own every book released by this author, Loving Cara is the first Kristen Proby book that I’ve actually read, and now I am going to make room in my schedule to read the rest because I am hooked!
Loving Cara is the first book in a new trilogy from Kristen Proby that follows the lives and loves of the inhabitants of Montana, and it has kicked off to an incredible start with the story of Cara and Josh.
Josh is the owner of the Lazy K Ranch (yep, he’s a rancher so expect lots of sexy images of his muscled body wearing nothing but a pair of Levi’s and some boots) and the Ranch is exactly where the wife of his twin brother (Zach is in the forces) dumps his nephew Seth, so she can go and live the life she wants – one that doesn’t include her son. This woman made me FUME!!! She didn’t even deserve to be a wife and a mother.
Not surprising with a poisonous mother like his, Seth is a troubled kid who gets behind on his school work, and that is where Cara comes in. She’s an old friend to Seth’s dad and uncle, and also happens to be a teacher who gets hired to tutor Seth through the summer. But being around the super sexy Josh on a near daily basis, will Cara be able to keep things strictly professional? Or will it be a case of Love Under The Big Sky for this small town girl and the super sexy rancher?
“Enjoy it while you can, honey, because I’m not a man that gives up control easily.”
As that quote above suggests, Josh has a rather dominant side that will make you go completely weak at the knees, and he is not only so damn sexy that it should be illegal, but he has a good heart and to be honest, he’s just pretty perfect. I freaking love him!!!
Cara is a really sweet and smart girl, and though she has some confidence issues due to the towns Bitch Brigade, she’s a great character and at times she was pretty kick ass! In my opinion Cara was at her best when put together with BFF Jill. Jill sometimes came across as slightly aggressive with the things she said but I thought she was hilarious! You can expect plenty of lines from her like this –
“If you two have sex with me lying three feet away from you, I will cut you both in your sleep.”
And this –
“If I was in Montana right now, I’d hunt you down and shove my foot so far up your ass you’d have toes for teeth!”
We also get to see a more heartbreaking side to Jill, and meet her gorgeous brother Ty, and we get to know a bit more about Josh’s twin Zach, who has come back from the army with his own personal scars. I can’t wait to see more from these characters in the following two books in this series. Seducing Lauren (book #2) will let us get up close and personal with Ty (we get a sneak peek at this book at the end of Loving Cara), and the currently untitled final book in the series will give us Zach as a leading man, and I am praying that Jill will be his leading lady.
This was a fantastic way to be introduced to the fabulous author that is Kristen Proby, and without a doubt, this book is going on my bookshelf.
“No measure of time with you will ever be long enough, Cara.”
