Rocky Mountain Haven #2 by Vivian Arend

Rocky Mountain Haven #2 by Vivian Arend
* I received this ARC free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

It’s the quiet ones that take you by surprise.

Six Pack Ranch, Book 2

Beth Danube’s emotionally abusive husband is dead and buried. So is her heart. It’s no big deal, she has all she wants: her three little boys and a fresh start in a small Alberta town. What she doesn’t want is another man in her life—not now, maybe not ever.

After ten years of unsatisfactory, missionary-position sex, she never expected her libido to reawaken. One look at sex-in-boots Daniel Coleman in a Calgary bar, though, blows the dust off her sexuality.

Sensing an edge of desperation, even fear, beneath Beth’s come-on, Daniel finds himself giving in to the powerful urge to let his normally subdued desires run wild. The lady wants non-judgmental, non-vanilla sex? She’s got it—in and out of the bedroom.

At first, friends with blazing-hot benefits is more than enough. Then she realizes Daniel is burning away the protective fortress around her heart…and the guilty secret she dare not reveal.

Warning: One woman determined to retake control of her life, a man with the single-minded purpose of offering her—and her body—everything she needs. Inappropriate behavior in barns, change rooms, and oh-my-gawd phone sex with a cowboy.

While out with his twin brothers, Daniel meets a woman that lights his fire.  Beth is unlike anyone he has met before and he wants to get to know her, unfortunately she has other plans.  To his surprise Beth not only turns up in his home town, but she’s been living in his grandfather’s old house on their property and he didn’t know it.

Beth and her boys are still recovering from the abusive life style they were living.  Her husband is dead and her leg was severely injured in a car wreck but she and the boys are free to start a new life.  She craves physical contact but she isn’t sure she can handle it; she is ready to take back over every aspect of her life, including her sexuality.

She is everything that he wants in a woman, including her boys and he wants to make them his. Little by little Daniel has worked his way into her heart and shown her that not all men are like her deceased husband.  Neither one is satisfied with their arrangement any longer, they both want it all.

I loved this book even more than the first one.  Daniel is a super hot cowboy but he is far from perfect.  He has issues that make you want to cry for him.  He has come to terms with it, even if his ex-girlfriend couldn’t.  Now everything his heart desires is within his grasp but he has to be careful or he could lose it all.

I admire Beth.  She is a very strong woman that would do anything for her children.  She finally realizes that it’s ok for to do something for herself too and does something about it.  The scene in the barn with her and Daniel was classic, I loved his response.

These two are extremely hot together and their chemistry is evident from the very beginning.  I love how Daniel was “courting” her along the way and she didn’t even realize it.  He also made it his duty for them not to have “vanilla” sex and I think he made good on that promise.  They had the pages sizzling.

There was so much more to this story though then just the attraction between Beth and Daniel.  The scene by the lake with the bench about broke my heart, it was so touching.  It also invoked anger when Nathan crawls up in Daniels lap after his bad dream, no child should have to go through that.  There are so many memorable scenes in this book and we get to visit with other members of the Six Pack Ranch.

I truly adored this book and can’t say enough how much I enjoyed it.  It evoked so many different emotions that I can’t wait to read the next book in the series and see what happens with Matt, Blake and Jaxi and all the other brothers.  I give Rocky Mountain Haven 4½ Flaming Hearts.

  1. Sounds WONDERFUL, Heather. I need to put this on my kindle to read, don’t it?

    • I loved this book Cyndi. It is sexy but it doesn’t fall under erotica and the story is full of different emotions – so yes I would say you need it on your kindle. The first book is good too.

  2. I love Viv’s work, and this one took her all the way to the New York Times Bestseller List. Way to go Vivian!! And great review for this one.

    • I love Viv’s work too. I love how versatile she can be. I loved her dolphin shifter Forces of Nature series and her Pacific Passion series but I think this is my favorite book yet.

      Thanks for stopping by.
