Ranching heir Colton West knew his wedding would be the talk of the town, but he didn't expect o get left at the altar - or to escape on the next flight to Vegas with Lydia Carpenter, the woman who gets under his skin like no one else.  The only thing crazier than honeymooning with Lydia is waking up married to her. So why does he find himself entertaining his new wife's desire to stay married - and fantasizing about a real wedding night?

 As Copper Ridge's prospective mayor, Lydia can't risk a divorce scandal so close to election time. But pretending to be blissfully in love with her new husband is more confusing than she'd thought. For a man who's always rubbed her the wrong way, Colton suddenly seems to know exactly what to do with his hands. And his lips. Now Lydia's wildest mistake could turn out to be her luckiest move, if they're both willing to take the ultimate gamble…

About the Author

 Maisey Yates

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.

In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it's been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn't have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.

I haven't had the pleasure of reading the first 5 books of this series.  This is book 6 and I would recommend reading the first 5 before this one.   This book can stand alone.   We have ranching heir, Colton, trying with all his might to hold his family together.  I'm not sure if he is succeeding.   I didn't like that Colton was ditched at the altar and on the re-bound was marrying Lydia.  This isn't a good start for any couple.  None the less, they were married.   It wasn't really love.  Was it a physical attraction?   Will Lydia and Colton find that moment when love reveals itself and romance begins?    Lots of romance, humorous moments, heart breaks and yet, a read you can relate to.  The events could very well happen in the reader's life.  Not far fetched at all.  You get the raw side of the characters and yet you get the good down to earth qualities too. The book does give the reader some hot, a little shyness there, romance. The book isn't just about sex, it's about people who learn and grow while learning.  It's about striving to find yourself, the best of yourself and developing on it. I definitely will read the first five books and I sure hope there will be a seventh book.   You're left at the end wanting more.

I received this complimentary book from the author, Maisey Yates and Night Owl Reviews in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
