4 steamy ranch hand stars!
In her sizzling new series, USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby sets the stage for a passionate reunion under the breathtaking Montana sky.
Cara Donovan’s summer tutoring job is turning out to be a challenge—and not just because of her troubled twelve-year-old student. It’s his uncle Josh who’s the real problem. If problem is the word for an irresistibly cocky, muscle-bound rancher with a taste for tight Levi’s and shameless flirtation. . . .
Cara is nothing like the wallflower Josh King remembers good-naturedly teasing in high school. This Cara is gorgeous, confident, fun. From the moment the fiery teacher steps foot on his family’s Lazy K Ranch, the stubborn playboy is determined to corral her. So what happens when his luscious lover takes over the reins?
The first in a steamy trilogy, Kristen Proby’s enthralling novel is filled to the brim with one hardworking family’s triumphs and challenges, all the wild adventure of the modern West, and a whole lot of titillating fun.
*Arc provided for an honest review*
I was super excited to receive a copy of Loving Cara for the blog tour.  I had yet to read anything from the author and was excited to pop my Kristen Proby cherry!
Loving Cara by Kristen Proby was engaging, well written and full of steam!  The story of Josh and Cara was an extremely sweet story of love and working to get over past fears and regrets.  The best part was that the sex in the book was very, very hot.....and it was just the right amount. 
Josh is your favorite kind of hardworking cowboy and his character was completely authentic to the lifestyle of a rancher.  Too many times authors push the boundaries of what you expect for a type of character and Josh was pretty much perfect.  He's exactly what I picture when I think of a classic Montana cowboy.  He's hot, built like an ox, works hard for his family and when it comes down to it he's sweet, romantic and just looking for the right girl to love.
I liked Cara but on a few occasions I wanted to smack my kindle and tell her to wake up.  She's the type of girl that constantly has a sliver of self doubt even though the hot hero is tripping over himself to get to her.  The redeeming quality she did have was that once she got a grip on herself she really started to grow as a character and grow on me.
The only thing I wanted was a little more angst.  The synopsis had me thinking it was a bit more of a cat and mouse game than it was........but that aside I think it was a great read.  I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is a fan cowboy romance or just romance in general with a good amount of heat!
