In the latest Silver Creek romance from USA Today bestselling author Maisey Yates, former rodeo star Cade Mitchell may never ride again, but there are still a few things he can do—like care for the woman he loves.
Amber Johnson has always thought of her best friend Cade as an older brother. A really hot older brother. But growing up in foster care, she learned to rely only on herself. As much as she likes stealing glances at Cade’s chiseled jaw and painted-on jeans, she resents the way he swoops in like a superhero to fix things for her.
When former rodeo rival Jim Davis starts harassing Amber to sell her grandfather’s failing ranch, Cade swoops in once again. To send Jim on his way, Cade pretends to be Amber’s boyfriend, moving in to help fix the place up. With her grandfather behind the idea, Amber and Cade have to keep the charade going—whether she likes it or not.
But as their make-believe romance starts to heat up, maybe Cade and Amber will learn to admit that they both could use a little saving…
This is my first Maisey Yates read and I enjoyed the story. I thought Amber and Cade were hilarious and the chemistry there was obvious. I would have liked more romance in the story though. Yeah, there are a lot of hot sexy times but both Amber and Cade don’t want commitments. They are best friends, antagonists and lovers but I felt their chemistry didn’t develop into as much of a romance as I would have liked it to.
Overall, the book was delightfully funny and the characters were interesting.
