Luke Adler lives for his ranch. It’s the only reason he agreed to get on board with his sister’s grand plan for guests staying on the property.
Nothing prepares him for the force of nature that is Samantha Morrison. When she arrives on his ranch to help construct this new part of his business, what he expects and what he gets are two entirely different things.
He expects a no-nonsense businessman. Straightforward and simple.
What he gets is a sunshine smile, sweet sass, and a woman who pushes every button and boundary he has.
He tries to ignore the draw, the urges she makes him feel. But when she gets close, he only wants her closer.
She makes him question his decisions, his thoughts, and the idea that being alone is best for him.
Even when they are consumed by the fire between them, he knows they come from two different worlds and he has to let her go.
But when the time comes, can he do that?
Can he live without her sunshine to warm his cold heart?
Or can this cowboy learn a new trick?
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Sunshine & Sammy by Melanie Moreland is a romance novel. It’s the fifth book from the Vested Interest: ABC Corp series.
Sammy Morrison was an independent DIY business starter and she was going to Alberta at River Rock Ranch to help them out add a tourist element to the ranch. The owners were Luke and Rachel Adler. They had inherited the ranch from their parents and needed the expansion
in order to save their livelihood. Luke thought that he would be working with a man so when he saw Sammy he was shocked and treated her poorly. Sammy was a stubborn woman and wasn’t scared of his attitude. Since their first meeting, they batted heads constantly but also came to a lot closer. The attraction between them was too hard to ignore and they set some rules. As it is known rules were made to be broken. When the project was finished Sammy had to go back. Would the grumpy cowboy let his sunshine girl leave him forever?
This is one of the best cowboy romances I have ever read. A steamy romantic story with lots of emotion. The storyline is excellent, quite engaging, and entertaining. It has a slow build-up and a nice flow. The story is told by a dual pov and in the present time, making it easy to follow. The characters were incredible and had good chemistry which was obvious from the beginning. The grumpy cowboy and the sunshine girl were total opposites but perfect for each other. My favorite parts were their banters.
I loved every minute of reading this book and I highly recommend it. I will rate it with 5 stars.
