Midnight Ride (Midnight Cowboys #1)

Cat Johnson

Mass Market Paperback, 368 pages

Expected publication: April 28th 2015 by Zebra

One bucking bronco…
Oklahoma ranch hand Tyler Jenkins is too young, too sexy, and too damn wild to be tied down by any single woman—for more than a few steamy hours…

One hard-working widow…
Widowed rancher Janie Smithwick is too busy paying off her debts to play rodeo with a reckless young cowboy like Tyler—no matter how hot he gets her…

One midnight ride they’ll never forget…
As a rule, Janie should be dating a man her own age, like her handsome neighbor Rohn—not the twenty-four-year old ranch hand he employs. But once Tyler gets Janie alone—held tight in his arms, pressed against his hard muscled body, burning with desire—the widow realizes that some rules, like broncos, are meant to be broken…

What others say about Cat Johnson:

“Packs a powerful emotional punch…Janie’s plucky can-do attitude and vulnerability are appealing, as is Tyler’s unexpected depth. With an entertaining cast of secondary characters, this tale will take readers for an enjoyable ride.”

What Karia says:

        “I love Cat Johnson!!!  I loved the previous series and reviewed all of them and loved them!”  Karia at Talkbookstome

Seriously, I loved this story!  The set up was too funny for the meet cute and from there it just got better and better.  As you all should know by now, I love a cowboy (wearing my cowboy boots today even).  Now, add to that a younger sexy cowboy, a lonely but by no means old widow and a couple wise cracking friends…bamm!  Hot damn!

Tyler is reckless with his affections towards women, but by no means is he immature.  He works hard, plays harder!  Janie on the other hand never lived wild.  She met her late husband at 18 while in college and he pursued her until she agreed to marry him.  They had a nice life, he even sold his interests in his family ranch to be a full partner in her grandfather’s ranch.  Sadly, cancer took him too soon and they never had children and this was not really discussed.  That was one topic that I felt was unresolved…why didn’t they have children?  Did he or she not want them?  Don’t know…

The love story between Tyler and Janie is quite sweet.  She is naïve, even though she is a widow in her thirties.  Tyler, anything but innocent, wants her. Period.  He doesn’t intend for it to be love, but I enjoyed being strung along on Tyler’s journey towards love and commitment.  Sweet, sexy love story with some flirty cowboys!  Cannot wait for Rohn to get his some some!!!  Enjoy!
