Everyone Cassie Wilcox loved is gone. And now, thanks to her drunken stepfather, her house and family business will be taken from her, too, unless she can find a way to buy back the ranch from the new owner. With less than two months to come up with money she doesn’t have, her options are running out, and apparently, her common sense as she rents out rooms to an eclectic group of strangers.
Returning home for Dalton Kincade is bittersweet. Not a damn thing has changed. Two years on the rodeo circuit weren’t able to shake free the memory of the feisty redhead who’d broken his heart into a thousand pieces. Nor the sting of her parting words…Never trust a Kincade.
Winning her beloved ranch in a drunken bet is the last thing he expected to happen, but at least he saved it for her. Now, he has to figure out how to break that news to a woman who never wants to see him again. Renting a room in the house he now owns might be a risk, but it’s nothing compared to betting his heart on winning back the love of his life.

MY REVIEW

3 "Cowboy For The Save" stars!

BETTING ON KINCADE reads like a traditional western romance. There's a rodeo star, his love interest owns a ranch, there was pre-existing drama, a feud, there was added drama, and the chemistry between the main characters was strong enough to hint at a happy ending.

As mush as I enjoyed this read, there were some details that bugged me:
✯ Cassie's pride and her attitude and her irrational though patterns made her a difficult character to like.
✯ Again Cassie came off as very abrasive and downright rude. Especially towards Dalton. He saved her ranch and what did he get for his trouble? A pisspoor attitude from the woman he loved.
✯ Unnecessary drama was mixed in with Dalton withholding the fact that he saved the ranch. Their history and present push-and-pull was enough to carry the story well.

So while Cassie annoyed and frustrated me, Dalton kept me reading more. This author created a truly worthwhile hero!
