Overall Card Rating

About The Book: Horny and tired of looking at Chance McCabe from a distance, almost-twenty- year-old Maggie wants nothing more than to break her vow of celibacy with the handsome dude ranch foreman and man of her dreams.

The Review: This short little tale was enjoyable. The scene set-up nicely, the imagery quite vivid, and the characters described. The sexual tension was there, and the sex scene nice.
If I had to name a problem because I didn’t do this as a top pick would for two reasons. The first is the “struggle” the hero had about “deflowering a virgin”. Maybe it has been a while since this happened to me, but he didn’t try real hard upon finding out Maggie, the heroine, was twenty years old and he was twenty-seven. He needed the job, but he succumbed to the sweet, young thing. The story got a little silly for me then. The second problem was the ending. Too contrived. The other ranch hands come to “rescue” the pair were “bad boys” with one almost raping Maggie, but she blackmails him into not saying anything. Really? I think a better ending would have made this short better.
All in all, I did enjoy it only thought some areas were not believable.
