As cowboys, the Langston brothers of Cattle Creek, Texas, know it can hurt like hell to fall off a horse. But it can hurt even more to fall in love. . . . Sheriff Seth Langston is head over heels for local wild child Jessie McAllen and has been for years. The trouble is she has eyes only for Seth’s rodeo star brother, Chase. Even though he considers Jessie his girl, Chase is an incorrigible ladies’ man with a wandering eye and no chance of settling down soon. Jessie is ready to move away from Cattle Creek to put her feelings for Chase behind her, but after she shares a white-hot kiss with Seth, things get a little complicated. Jessie realizes her heart should have been his all along. And in the face of sudden tragedy, they’ll discover if their newfound passion will tear the Langston men apart or make the family stronger than ever. . . .

Local Jessie McAllen is a rebel, known as the wild child of Cattle Creek, Texas. Chase Langston, who considers Jessie his "girl" has roaming eye.  He has no intention of stopping his wanderlust even though Jessie has been his for quite some time.  He likes to flaunt other women's attention and his attention to them in front of her.  She doesn't know, but one of the other Langston brothers, Sheriff Seth Langston, has loved her from afar for a long time.  He calls her "Jessie James"   Seth and Chase both could have their pick of women, and Chase goes after that, while Seth is the quiet, gentle and caring type.   Jessie lives with her grandma. She has had to fight for everything she has.   She has finally had it with Chase, Cattle Creek and everything that goes with it.  She is ready to leave, until ?  Life gets complicated as it has a tendency to do.  Two brothers - what will happen?  Will Jessie realize that maybe she has been looking to the wrong man for love?  Will romance and love put the right two people together? Will an unforseen tragedy ruin everyone's lives?  The author gives us characters that the reader can definitely relate to.  Characters so well described that you feel as though you are part of their lives.  You can picture the scenes as though you are there in the middle of them.  Even their clothes are described to a "T".  You can picture Jessie's worn cowboy booths and her cut off jeans.  You can see Chase and Seth, different and yet so much alike.  What a wild Texas ride!  Romance, lust, sweetness, love, heartache and I could go on and on.  The author gives you all of it.  When you finish the book, you'll want more and more.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Amy Lillard and Night Owl Reviews in exchange for my unbiased review.

I would give this book 5 STARS.

 I'm a wife, mother, and bona fide Southern belle. Published author, expert corn bread maker, and Squirrel Princess.

I live in Tulsa, though I was born in Mississippi. I moved to the Sooner State when I was seventeen and met my soul mate and best friend not long after. I've retained a little of my Mississippi accent though most people think I'm from Texas. (?) Rob and I have been married for over twenty years and have a son-a mom proclaimed prodigy, of course!

I love homemade tacos, nail polish, and romance novels-not necessarily in that order. I'm a big fan of country music, a staunch proponent of saving the Oxford comma, and I'm shamefully obsessed with all things Harry Potter.

I believe that God is love. I guess that's why I love to write inspirational romances. The two go hand-in-hand for me.

I have always been intrigued with the Amish culture, their gentle ways and slower-paced lifestyle. (And I love, love, love the fact that they stay married for their lifetime.) But until recently I never thought to blend this interest with my penchant for romance. Okay, okay, I'm a bit old-fashioned and even enjoy the gender roles that are present in this culture. I love to cook and take care of my family. Yes, that's me June Cleaver with a laptop.

I dislike people trying to convince me to read the Twlight series (I'll get to it or I won't, either way I'm good with it), gratuitous violence, and strawberry ice cream. (I know I'm alone on this last one, and again, I'm good with it.)

Favorite movies-(besides HP) French Kiss, Maid of Honor, A Lot Like Love, Just Married, and Sweet Home Alabama. Oh, and Miss Congeniality, Sabrina (both versions) and a 1940′s movie called Dear Ruth. If you haven't seen it, you should! A-dorable. Anything with Doris Day and most all of Marilyn's and Audrey's.
