Six Pack Ranch, Book 1

Blake Coleman is old enough to know that acting on impulse causes nothing but a heap of trouble. But when trouble’s a western-hat-wearing blonde with slim legs that go on forever, what’s a man to do? Wanting the sweet girl next door is just wrong. The responsible thing to do is keep his hands off.

Jaxi has other plans for Blake’s hands, and his heart. She may have once considered him a big brother, but that was a long time ago. She’s all grown up now and ready to convince him that she’s perfect for him. Except he can’t seem to see past the big “don’t touch” sign that’s apparently still hanging around her neck.

When Jaxi ends up living right under Blake’s nose, the undeniable heat between them slides off simmer and leaps up to barn-burning levels. However, a few of the younger six-pack Colemans have decided Jaxi’s brand of trouble is worth risking a few busted bones.

That is, if Blake’s finally ready to let go the reins and fight for what he wants…

Warning: Sexy cowboys seducing and being seduced in trucks, pool halls and barns. Droolworthy country charm, a little double-teaming, a few secrets and a whole lot of brothers to look forward to. Anyone wanna go for a ride?

Jaxi has been a fixture on the Coleman ranch ever since she was a little girl.  They have always made her feel like part of the family so she never hesitated when asked to help care for Marion.  It would mean living at the ranch and being near Blake.  She isn’t a little girl anymore and she knows what she wants, Blake Coleman.  She will do whatever it takes to get his attention, even enlist the help of his brothers.

Jaxi has been a fixture at the ranch for as long as Blake can remember.  She’s best friends with his twin brothers and she dated Travis for awhile.  He’s always tried to treat her like his kid sister even once she became the star of his fantasies.  He is around ten years her senior and feels that he is too old for her.  Who knew it only took a game of pool to spur him into action where Jaxi is concerned.

I loved Jaxi’s character.  She may be young but she knows what she wants.  She has been in love with Blake for years and has been taking steps to learn how to be a rancher’s wife.  She is not afraid of hard work and she’s a country girl through and through.  She also manages to hang on to her femininity while mucking out stalls, mending fences and picking vegetables from the garden.

The chemistry between Jaxi and Blake is evident from the beginning but he has to work though his issues first.  Once he does, watch out!!  There are too many good parts to pick out just one but the canning episode in the kitchen and the pool game have to rank as some of the sexiest scenes I’ve read.  One of my favorite laugh out loud moments was the movie date, enough said.

I love how Blake took the sex out of the picture and added the romance to their relationship.  Since he is so much older than Jaxi, he wanted them to take the time to get to know each other.  He didn’t want her regretting her decision down the road.   He was so sexy and sweet and a cowboy to boot.  Can I have one like him, please?

I enjoyed getting to know all six of the Coleman brothers and their parents. I can’t wait to read Daniel’s book next and I hope we find out more about Travis’ secret and Matt and Helen’s relationship.  I agree with Blake and Jaxi where Helen is concerned – I don’t like her very much.

Overall I loved everything about this book and give Rocky Mountain Heat 4½ Flaming Hearts.
