Bossing the Cowboy by Kennedy Fox

4 STARS

Release Date: May 11, 2021

SYNOPSIS: After surviving a messy divorce and custody battle, Dr. Connor Wallen quickly became married to his job. Helping animals is the perfect distraction from his crazy ex, but he finds it difficult to concentrate when an attractive woman joins his veterinary clinic. Getting involved with someone who works for him would only lead to disaster, so staying professional is key. He tries to ignore her, but their chemistry is undeniable.
Elizabeth Bishop can’t stand her boss or how he treats her, but there aren’t many job options in small-town Texas. No matter what she does, it’s never good enough for Connor, but she continues trying to impress him anyway. She’ll never admit she’s attracted to him and denies it every chance she gets. Avoiding him is impossible, but Elle keeps her distance whenever possible. After his walls start to crumble, she knows her feelings aren’t one-sided. She’s tired of playing his games and is ready to prove who’s really in control. Although he pushes her away, she’s determined to pull him closer—showing him exactly what they’ve both been missing.


Bossing the cowboy is Book 4 in the Circle B Ranch Series!
Bossing the Cowboy is a complete stand-alone and can be read without reading any of the other books or spin-off series, but if you prefer to read in order, start with Hitching the Cowboy as the characters and families do interconnect.


REVIEW: This one was a quick read, but a slow burn. Elle was just such a sweetheart and Connor was dealing with a lot. I really liked the dedication of these two had to each other, even though they weren’t actually together for years and didn’t know the other was interested! I am a sucker for this type of loyalty in characters, especially when they aren’t even together. It was also interesting how this story spanned over so many years. It’s always fun seeing all the Bishops and how they play a part in the different romances! They’re such a big awesome family with lots of kids and grandkids. This was just a feel good romance read.

Holding You Close by Kennedy Fox

4 STARS!

Release Date: March 16, 2021

SYNOPSIS: After serving a decade long prison sentence for an accident that resulted in my husband’s death, Noah Reid returns. Even if he was my childhood best friend and the first man I secretly loved, I refuse to make it easy for him. But the heart never forgets and those old repressed feelings quickly bubble to the surface. Loving him is a dangerous game but one I’m willing to play. Flirting leads to falling between the sheets, and I’m forced to deal with the guilt of what we’re doing. Viciousness towards Noah runs rampant and while revenge trickles through the streets of Lawton Ridge, I realize there’s more on the line than just my heart. While I’m afraid that my son and I will be caught in the crossfire of those who want to hurt Noah, I can’t walk away. Secrets are revealed and revelations are made, but losing him again isn’t an option—especially since I’m pregnant.


HOLDING YOU AWAY is a slow burn, angsty friends to lovers romance with lots of small-town, Southern drama.
It’s book 2 in the Noah & Katie duet and must be read in order.

Check out Book 1: Pushing You Away here!


IF YOU LOVE:
✔️Childhood friends… to enemies…to more?
✔️Single parent
✔️Small-town drama
✔️Suspense
✔️Hero redemption


REVIEW: After that cliffhanger, I was so ready for this one. I have been so curious about both Katie and Noah since we got hints about their situation during Tyler and Gemma’s Duet. I knew they’d have a rocky ride! I kind of guessed a lot of what was going to happen, but I was still interested to see what Kennedy Fox was going to do with this one. They definitely did some great foreshadowing in this one and gave us a lot of the aftermath of all the craziness. It was nice to see how these two adapted to all of the things against them after the dust had settled. In true Kennedy Fox fashion, there was the drama, they were steamy times, and there were the awesome friendships. I do love this crazy interconnected group of friends, that’s for sure. Oh, and of course we got little snippets of what Everleigh will be dealing with in her duet with Archer, and man, I do not think I’m ready for the wildness that is her.

Pushing You Away by Kennedy Fox

4 STARS!

Release Date: February 16, 2021

SYNOPSIS: I’ve been in love with my best friend Katie Walker for as long as I can remember. We may have shared our deepest, darkest secrets but that one I’ve kept to myself. Before I got the courage to confess my true feelings, my cousin Gabe moved to town and swept Katie off her feet. I should’ve admitted how I felt but I couldn’t—especially once they got married.
When I caught Gabe cheating on his pregnant wife, I snapped. A deadly fight erupted and before I could comprehend what happened, I was charged with his murder and sent to prison. The day I’m released, I go straight to Katie’s house. But after pushing her away for a decade while I was behind bars—she slams the door in my face—wanting nothing to do with me. While she’s determined to pretend I don’t exist, this time I’m not going anywhere. 


PUSHING YOU AWAY is a slow burn, angsty friends to lovers romance with lots of small-town, Southern drama.
This is book 1 in the Noah & Katie duet and must be read in order.


IF YOU LOVE:
✔️Childhood friends… to enemies…to more?
✔️Single parent
✔️Small-town drama
✔️Suspense
✔️Hero redemption


REVIEW: As per usual, I NEED book 2 right this minute. Luckily, Kennedy Fox never makes us wait long. Book 2: Holding You Close comes out on March 16th. Okay, back to this book. I love Noah. I have been so curious about both Katie and Noah since we get hints about their situation during Tyler and Gemma’s Duet. They sure do have a lot of cards stacked against them with what has happened in the past! And then there’s the current drama bringing that romantic suspense aspect into the picture. In true Kennedy Fox fashion, they gave us a ton of little details within that damn cliffhanger they leave us with. I am picking up what is going on with this one and I am looking forward to seeing how it unfolds and all the details come together. I’m definitely rooting for these two!

The Best of Us by Kennedy Fox

4.5 STARS!

Release Date: December 1, 2020

SYNOPSIS: What happens when the biggest blizzard of the year hits and you’re trapped in a cabin with your best friend’s brother? You take every opportunity to spend time together and make him fall in love with you.

The Best of Us is a best friend’s brother, opposites attract, and snowed-in together standalone romance. The second book of the Love in Isolation Series.

REVIEW: I’ve been looking forward to this one since reading The Two of Us, which I absolutely adored! While that one took place during the pandemic, this one takes place afterward when a vaccine is available. I think what I like about these books is the impact of a pandemic is very realistically portrayed–which I think we can all connect to right now. Ryan was such an interesting character and not what I was expecting after meeting his sister Cami in book 1. Ryan is a doctor and worked during the pandemic. That and his wealthy family impact who he is and how he’s coping during this book. Kendall handles what Ryan throws at her pretty well, even though she’s obviously had a thing for him for a long time. This was such a journey for these two, with lots and lots of steamy moments. They are definitely NOT lacking chemistry! It was fun to see little bits of Cami and Eli as well. I’m excited to see what comes next in this series.

Blurb: Lauren – Going back to work was supposed to be a painless transition, but when my new boss turns out to be an arrogant, cocky jerk, he quickly turns my professional life into a world of torture. Okay, fine, calling him an asshat before knowing he was my boss wasn’t my finest moment. Hating him should be easy. I just never counted on him being so gorgeous or charming when he’s not annoying me.
Austin – I expected my new assistant to be professional and punctual, but all I’m getting are dirty looks and rude comments. I should fire the little hellion, but instead all I can think about is bending her over my desk and breaking every rule I’ve ever made for myself. One look. One touch. One night. If we break the rules, our lives will never be the same again.
Good thing rules were made to be broken. And besides, it feels so good to Tempt the Boss.

About Natasha Madison: When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Pierce “One-Mile” Walker has always kept his heart under wraps and his head behind his sniper’s scope. Nothing about buttoned-up Brea Bell should appeal to him.

He’ll do whatever it takes to steal her heart. Brea has always been a dutiful daughter and a good girl…until she meets the dangerous warrior. He’s everything she shouldn’t want, especially after her best friend introduces her to his fellow operative as his girlfriend—to protect her from Pierce. But he’s a forbidden temptation she’s finding impossible to resist. Then fate strikes, forcing Brea to beg Pierce to help solve a crisis. But his skills come at a price. When her innocent flirtations run headlong into his obsession, they cross the line into a passion so fiery she can’t say no. Soon, his past rears its head and a vendetta calls his name in a mission gone horribly wrong. Will he survive to fight his way back to the woman who claimed his soul?

But when he learns she’s planning a future without him, he vows he’ll break every rule and defy all odds to make her his again—forever.
Brea Bell was always a good girl…until Pierce Walker. Despite everyone’s warnings, she gave the rough warrior her body—and her heart. When she receives news that shatters her world, he devastates her by walking away. Terrified of losing all she’s ever known, Brea tucks away her dreams and commits to a “safe” future. Then Pierce appears in the dead of night, challenging and seducing her. Brea isn’t sure she can trust him…but she also can’t say no.

Release Date: February 20th 2018

Blurb: Tori… For the record, I’m not going to hook up with my boss. I’m a lot of things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss. I don’t want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won’t get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him. 
Ethan… Between us, she’s the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce. What sane man trying to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles, and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn’t notice. My focus is on my kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to mine. It doesn’t matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can’t have and shouldn’t want, no matter how much I crave her.

Synopsis: Travis King is the worst kind of asshole with good looks and enough confidence to last two lifetimes.
Viola Fisher is a goodie two shoes know-it-all who prefers fictional love stories over her own.
The only thing they have in common is their mutual hatred for each other. She’s had a secret crush on him since she was ten, but Travis has always made it very clear the feelings aren’t mutual. He’s cruel, crass and takes every opportunity to get under Viola’s skin. She’s smart, beautiful, and too good to be true. Hating him is her religion, but needing her is his. Although Viola loathes his very existence, against her better judgment she let him into her bed. Her sexy curves and filthy smart mouth make Travis want her even more and although she’s succumbed to his manwh*re ways, she’s determined to not let that change a thing.
Too bad he has other plans. Viola’s always been off-limits, but Travis is determined to keep crossing that line. She can try to push him away, but he always gets what he wants and he’ll do anything to prove he’s done playing games. Until then, they’ll play by their own rules to see who will win the biggest battle yet—love or hate?

Release Date: June 16th 2020

Synopsis: A drunken bet that led to a fake relationship? My naive little heart still hoped it would last… We were never meant to be together. He’s a bartender with noncommittal tendencies. I’m looking for… the opposite. Commitment. Period. But drinks and a bet led to something it shouldn’t have: a fake relationship. Worse, a first date, a first kiss… and then more. He’s addictive and I can’t bring myself to accept the reality. That it’s all a lie and I’m fooling myself by thinking he could want more. That I could change him. He’s mine for as long as I keep on pretending like this is just for fun. As if I don’t want more… Like when he whispers my name, I pretend it doesn’t make my heart flip. Like when he holds me at night, I pretend I don’t want to lay in his bed every night. It’s just a bet; just a lie… until it isn’t.

Needing You Close by Kennedy Fox

5 STARS!

Release Date: August 13, 2020

SYNOPSIS: I never expected to see my first love again after he left me twelve years ago. Though I’ve moved on, working with Tyler is no easy task—especially when he focuses his bedroom eyes on me. Flirting with the past is like playing with fire, and considering I’m engaged, I’m bound to get burned. When the man I promised to marry reveals he’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing, I run to the safety of Tyler’s strong arms. As we grow closer, so do our feelings. Threats and ultimatums are made, and the revelation of the truth is enough to bring me to my knees. I’ll do whatever it takes to protect my family, even if it means shredding my heart. Too dangerous, too unpredictable, too risky to handle alone—we need each other now more than ever. After our world nearly collapses, there’s nothing left to do but take it back. Tyler and I team up to destroy the people who are determined to ruin our second chance at a happily ever after. Though our love is undeniable, I just hope it’s enough. We’ll fight until the end to be together—regardless of who tries to get in our way.

NEEDING YOU CLOSE is a slow-burn, angsty romance wrapped up in an intense love story. It’s book 2 in the Tyler & Gemma duet and must be read in order.

REVIEW: This is why I make an exception to my “no duets” rule for Kennedy Fox! I love shorter books where I get to the HEA sooner, but this one was great. It is so fun seeing Maddie and Liam from the Roommates series in this one too! Gemma and Tyler just have this chemistry that I couldn’t get enough of in these books. Also, I’m just such a Tyler fan. He is loyal and caring and total book boyfriend material. We get this glimpse of Gemma and Tyler together in the beginning of the first book, but they were both so young. This book introduces us to adult Tyler and Gemma’s relationship and it is a great one. They just love each other so much! Everything about them just made me so invested in the story.

Between the reappearance of Victoria, and Gemma’s crazy ex-fiancé, I knew the usual Kennedy Fox drama was coming. And come it did. In the last quarter of this book SO much happened! I freakin’ love the wild ride and I cannot wait for the rest of this Ex-Con Series! Thank you to Kennedy Fox and Wildfire Marketing Solutions for the eARC in exchange for an honest review!

Keeping You Away by Kennedy Fox

5 STARS

Release Date: July 16, 2020

SYNOPSIS: I never planned on returning to Alabama, but circumstances brought me here after years of being gone. Though Lawton Ridge is my hometown, I was hesitant to go back because of her —my sister’s best friend. The last time we were together, she was eighteen, and I was a broken soldier transitioning to civilian life. Gemma wrote to me while I was overseas and we developed a bond I hadn’t anticipated. I crushed her heart the day I left, something I’ve never forgotten. But now that her dad is my new boss, life just got way more complicated. Too sweet, too innocent, too good for a guy like me—I should walk away again. After serving five years in prison for something I didn’t do, I trust no one, but Gemma gradually breaks down my walls and exposes the pain I’ve hidden underneath. For her own sake, I should keep my distance, but it’s nearly impossible when I hear her sweet humming while I work and she slowly draws me back in. It’s a battle I didn’t train for, and one I’ll lose if I don’t keep my restraint—especially since she’s engaged to another man.


REVIEW: When I first read about Tyler in Liam and Maddie’s duet (Always Mine and Always Yours), I fell for how selfless he was in support of his friends. I love the friendship he builds with Maddie and I was beyond excited to get Tyler’s story! Lucky, Kennedy Fox did not disappoint with the first half, which means I’m dying for the second book in the duet, Keeping You Close (thankfully it’s coming August 13th). The way Gemma and Tyler fell for each other when they were younger is so Tyler–I’m seriously in love with him as a leading male, he’s not perfect, but he’s really caring. Their journey was so sweet and I just wanted them to be happy together, but we all know that’s not how life works. Which is why we get some amazing second-chance romances like this one.

A big reason why I thoroughly enjoy Kennedy Fox books, is that I often have a long/hate relationship with the characters. During this book I wanted to scream at Gemma, which is why she’s lucky to have Everleigh–the best listener ever–as a friend (I really wish Everleigh was my friend and I cannot wait for the third duet when we get her story). So while I’m over here as the reader with all the knowledge from both POVs, I can’t help but be frustrated with the characters, while at the same time rooting for them and anticipating when they will figure it all out. This is why I’m so invested in these books. BUT WAIT, there is also the fact that Kennedy Fox always finds a way to throw in some drama/danger to really spice the story up. I seriously love every moment of it. And that ending! I am not ready for Keeping You Close, but I NEED IT NOW!

The Two of Us by Kennedy Fox

4.5 STARS

Release Date: May 15, 2020

SYNOPSIS: What do you do when the entire nation is on lockdown?

If you’re an heiress to a billion-dollar fashion company, then you quarantine in a glamorous cabin and finish your final semester of NYU online. The best way to focus on her upcoming valedictorian honor is away from her family, classmates, and the paparazzi. Cameron St. James is ready to get out of the big city and head Upstate for seclusion, despite her parents’ pleas to stay home.

What do you do when a pandemic is sweeping the world?

If you’re barely making ends meet, then you isolate yourself in your best friend’s mountain cabin with breathtaking views and no neighbors for miles. It’s the perfect safe place away from three roommates who don’t take the life-threatening epidemic seriously. Elijah Ross is ready to work remotely and focus on his next big promotion, assuming he’ll still have a job after this.

What happens when things don’t go as planned, and you’re stuck with the one person you dislike the most?

You improvise and do whatever it takes to avoid each other, though it proves to be impossible. The cold evenings alone turn into movie and popcorn nights together by the fireplace. Days turn into weeks, and eventually, more than just a friendship blossoms. As the unknown haunts them, they lean on one another for comfort—until someone pops their safety bubble and threatens everything.

The Two of Us is an enemies to lovers, brother’s best friend standalone romance set in the current affairs of history in the making. Though the character’s storyline is fiction, the circumstances are very real, and we’re sensitive to this topic. This is a story about hope, love, and so much more with a guaranteed happily ever after.

REVIEW: I truthfully didn’t now what to expect with this, but Kennedy Fox brought their usual writing style and made it as good as always! With all the relevant elements around what it means to live through what we are living through right now, I was completely invested in this book. I also really liked Cameron and Elijah together. It was fun seeing their growth during the story. And in true Kennedy Fox fashion their is a moment I was not expecting thrown in the make my heart race (not in the sexy way, but don’t worry that’s there too). Haha. Overall, I just really enjoyed this take on a romance during quarantine!

I also want to say that I sincerely appreciated how Kennedy Fox portrayed some of the realities of anxiety. I’m always thankful for authors who normalize mental health conditions in their books!

Always Mine by Kennedy Fox

4 STARS!

Release Date: January 7, 2019

SYNOPSIS

College parties, beer, and one-night stands—that was my life.
Now, I hunt down criminals, ethically or not, but if no one’s asking, then I’m not telling. Drinking and women are still included, though I can’t seem to forget the girl who almost gave me her virginity. She would’ve until I realized she was too young, and I wasn’t looking to get thrown into jail. 

In a twist of fate, we’re reunited, except she’s no longer underage but still equally off-limits.
After ignoring her relentless advances, she starts to wear me down. I only have so much willpower when she’s around, running her smart mouth and showing off her impeccable dance moves. 

Just when my restraint starts to crumble, my poor choices finally catch up with me, putting us both in danger. 
There’s no easy way to explain why I betrayed her, but I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe—even if it means breaking her heart.

ALWAYS MINE is a slow-burn, intense romance wrapped up in a suspenseful beautiful love story. It’s book 1 in the Liam & Madelyn duet and must be read first.

REVIEW

Okay, I am loving this whole series. It’s a damn rollercoaster of emotions. The opening scene pulled me right the hell into Always Mine! I wasn’t expecting Liam’s personal story, which was a nice surprise. Both of them are frustratingly human at times. Plus, their banter is non-stop. AND TALK ABOUT A SLOW-BURN, the Liam and Maddie build-up has been going on since book 1 of the series, but I will not get total satisfaction until book 6–you know because it’s a series of duets. While I may not be totally satisfied, because I haven’t gotten my Liam and Maddie HEA, book 5 was pretty damn enjoyable. I’m counting down the moments until Always Yours is in my hands!!
