In this second of the sultry, Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily-ever-after—but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots?
Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.
The only place Tate Montgomery ever truly felt at home growing up was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his Gram and Paw’s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start—but if he’s being entirely honest, he’s not just back for the wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend-turned-young-love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past; but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty he did his best to forget for him to realize just how much he’s been missing….
It’s been a while since I read a book by Ms. Sloan and I’m glad I chose this one. KISS MY BOOTS is a sweet and scorching hot story of first love and second chances that will leave you drowning in emotions. Readers will relive the heady feeling of first or new love and the wariness of the burned that comes with another foray into finding love, whether with the same person, or with some new.
Quinn Davis and Tate Montgomery knew they were made for each other from the very first time they met and could not wait to explore their future together. But life was not kind to them and the future they longed for was not to be. For nine long years, both Quinn and Tate have been going through the motions, unable to move past their feelings for each other and commit to anyone else, and Tate’s return to Pine Oak for good is about to whip up a storm between them.
Tate has walked away from his life for good, determined to fight for his happiness with Quinn, but she’ll have to decide if letting him back into her life and heart is worth the cost or if going through the motions for the rest of her life is the better option.
Quinn and Tate were really great and enjoyable characters. Quinn is feisty and bold, quite a handful and the unconditional love and support from her brothers went a long way towards making her who she was, in spite of the insecurities that had plagued her growing up.
People, find yourself a man or woman who is committed, devoted and willing to give up everything to make you happy, who is emotionally mature and open as Tate, who is willing to put in the hard work in a relationship and your happiness will be guaranteed for life! Enough said.
I loved that there was little angst in this story. Both Quinn and Tate knew what they wanted and will minimal drama, went straight for it. I liked how supportive Tate was even as Quinn struggled with her own issues that were unrelated to their relationship.
KISS MY BOOTS is a sweet second chance story of forgiveness, healing and hope with a lot of humor. My only minor quibble with the book was that some parts of it were repetitive and it was a little too long because of that, but what was enjoyable was really enjoyable and I’m looking forward to Clay’s story.
