This cowboy’s about to be branded….
For years, Karlie Kyle has had it bad for Luke McKade – wishing he’d see her as something more than just a shy girl in braided pigtails. But now that she’s all grown up, she’s ready to stake her claim and brand the heart of the sexy, smooth-talking cowboy who “can’t be tamed”.
Punched with lust from the moment he sees her again, Luke is shocked when he realizes that little Karlie Jo isn’t so little anymore. When she tempts him with a proposition he just can’t refuse, he’s happy to oblige – temporarily.
Karlie is willing to play along, but her heart is set on forever. As raw desire sparks something deeper, can Karlie convince Luke that rules are meant to be broken? Or will their passionate summer fling end with broken hearts instead?
Kimberly Lewis is the bestselling author of sweet, sexy contemporary romances filled with heart and humor. She lives in Maryland with her husband and two children.
Having caught the creative bug at an early age, Kimberly fully embraced her active imagination and grew up with a fondness for reading, drawing, and crafting stories. She eventually veered away from the art world to explore other career options, but a rediscovery of her love for the romance genre reignited that creative spark and—just like that—her first novel was published in 2011. Her stories are filled with humor, emotion, and a whole lot of love.

I think this is a cute story by Lewis 🙂 It was great to read about the main characters. They were pretty funny with how they didn’t understand each other at first. I liked that the romance progressed through the novel as well. I give it a 5/5 stars for great romance that gave me the smiles and tingles!
Williams was a good narrator for this novel! She did a great job with the emotions of these two characters and their exasperation with each other. I could listen to her narrate many more romance novels in the future. I give her a 5/5 stars as well.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Kimberly Lewis. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
Favorite Western Romance Books By Author Kimberly Lewis
- Infamous by Suzanne Brockmann
Why I love it: It’s one of those books that has everything: a contemporary setting mixed with flashbacks to the old west, cowboys, military men, romance, suspense and … a ghost.
- One Lucky Cowboy by Carolyn Brown
Why I love it: Carolyn Brown’s deep southern humor is one of my favorites and this book delivered so many laugh-out-loud moments for me (you’ve got me hooked when you can make me laugh out loud while reading). And out of all of the men in her Lucky in Love series, Slade was my favorite (can you say, super sexy cowboy?)
- All Jacked Up by Lorelei James
Why I love it: Two words: Jack Donahue. I swear, I love all of the McKay men in Lorelei James’ Rough Riders world, but Jack just surpasses all of them for me with his GQ looks, smart mouth, and that secret sweetness he only shows for Keely. They are my all-time favorite book couple ever.
- The Gambler by Lily Graison
Why I love it: I love all of the books in Ms. Graison’s Willow Creek series, but this one is my favorite so far because of Tristan. The way he is with Emmaline just does me in every time I read it.
- Tall, Dark and Cowboy by Joanne Kennedy
Why I love it: I’m a sucker for second chance romance. Mix that with some action and suspense and you’ve got one of my favorite Joanne Kennedy books.
- Cowboy Take Me Away by Lorelei James
Why I love it: It’s a love story that covers a lifetime and one of the few books I’ve devoured in one sitting.
- Roped In by L.P. Dover
Why I love it: I’m hooked on Ms. Dover’s writing style and how she has the ability to keep you so deeply involved in her characters’ stories. This was one of those books I hated to put down when real life called. Lots of suspense and a super sexy secret agent cowboy ☺
- Learning the Ropes by T.J. Kline
Why I love it: I’m not only a sucker for second chance romance, I’m also a sucker for friends-to-lovers. I found myself hoping things would work out for these characters and getting so frustrated with them at times that I wanted to just reach in the book and knock some sense into them.
- Hometown Cowboy by Sara Richardson
Why I love it: Second chance? Check. Friends-to-lovers? Check. Super sexy cowboy? Oh, hell yes.
- One Fine Cowboy by Joanne Kennedy
Why I love it: I love how Ms. Kennedy tends to take two characters who don’t have anything in common and bring them together in the most magical way; and she delivered that big time in this book with Nate and Charlie.
