Please welcome Em Petrova and her newest edition/addition to the wildly successful and gloriously inventive Boot Knockers Ranch Series: Reining Men, where the cowboys are hot, the women good-looking, and the action under the Texas sun is scorching.
There’s no escaping ranch policy—anything to please a lady…
The Boot Knockers Ranch, Book 3
The Boot Knockers Ranch caters to women in all ways. And now rookie Paul is officially part of the team. He’s had six months to hone his skills with the ladies and prides himself on being a prime catch.
Jack would agree. He can’t get the rugged cowboy out of his system. He wants Paul in his bed more than anything, but his best friend has always been resistant to relations with other men. Jack’s instinct says different, but he values Paul’s friendship too highly to push it.
Then Jack takes on beautiful new client Lissy Lofton and finds himself falling hard for the confident show jumper. He’s not the only one. Lissy has caught Paul’s attention, and the attraction is mutual.
But now Jack has a problem. Lissy’s sexual appetite is so ravenous, he doubts he can last the week without backup. Which presents an irresistible opportunity to invite Paul into their bed—where the incandescent heat brings all their walls tumbling down.
Warning: Contains two smoking-hot cowboys whose drive to please the same woman spurs a desire to please each other.

“This lower lip is as ripe as a juicy peach. And this upper one”—he dragged his thumb over the rounded edges—“is a man’s wet dream.”
His dirty words spiked her desire. She wrapped her fingers around his strong wrist. Wide, sprinkled with light hairs, warm from the sun. Damn, she wanted to touch his every inch. For a week, Jack was hers to worship.
And she planned to take total advantage and make the big fee worth it.
His lashes lowered over smoldering eyes the color of sea glass. As a child she’d gathered the remnants from the beach and kept them in a little wooden box her parents had given her. What had happened to that collection?
Who cared? Now she had a new kind of sea glass to admire.
Jack tipped closer until the brim of his hat bumped her forehead. With a warm chuckle, he nudged it up. “Hat on or off, Lissy?”
Her mind bounced around the question. What did she want her first kiss to be like? He was allowing her to choose her path. Her heart swelled with the knowledge of her own power.
“On,” she whispered, her voice a stranger’s.
He angled his head, nose brushing hers. She filled her lungs with his scent—leather, man, hay. All the things she adored clinging to one perfect cowboy.
The Boot Knockers Ranch is where ladies can go to work out issues. In this episode, we are introduced to Lissy, an athlete who excels at beach volleyball and equestrian show jumping, but her schedule leaves her little time for men, let alone romance. That’s bad enough but Lissy is also a virgin, and she’s at that point in her life where it’s time to do something about it.
The Boot Knockers brochure is enough for her to say ‘sign me up’.
Jack and Paul are best friends, sharing chores and a love for the land and the ranching way of life. Paul is one of the ranch’s rookies but he’s proved himself a valuable member of the team and a prime catch for the ladies. While most of the cowboys aren’t shy about pursuing relationships with their fellow wranglers, Paul is vocally heterosexual despite Jack’s instincts that tell him differently.
Jack’s the one who hits the lottery with Lissy, and when he gets the striking athlete alone, he finds he may have gotten more than he bargained for. Lissy is a real live wire and Jack is smitten, but he isn’t the only one. Paul has his eye on the tall woman also … and when it’s apparent Jack needs a little backup in the loving department…?
Well, as they say, one thing leads to another, and another, and who*ee is it ever hot in here.
Lissy isn’t the usual shy flower who needs to be nurtured. She’s strong, she’s determined and she’s adventurous. I loved her in a you-go-girl way, but the characters I fell for, hard, were Jack and Paul—their friendship felt real with best friends kind of bantering, and the hesitant steps they take when it becomes clear that what’s between them is smokin’ hot is a real page turner. Their solution to how they can work out their combined futures is satisfying and believable.
My only concern with the series is… Are they going to run out of hot cowboys, because, dayyum, that would sure be a shame.
