Hi and welcome to this weeks Book Club Thursday. I hope you are staying warm this cold month and that you get a chance to curl up with a good book. This week, we are reviewing SLOW HAND by Victoria Vane.
Red Carpet Awards Best Contemporary Romance Finalist 2014. Available now in e-book and paperback. Published by: Sourcebooks Casablanca.
About The Book:
In rural Montana...Wade Knowlton is a hardworking lawyer who's torn between his small-town Montana law practice and a struggling family ranch. He's on the brink of exhaustion from trying to save everybody and everything, when gorgeous Nicole Powell walks into his office. She's a damsel in distress and the breath of fresh air he needs.
Even the lawyers wear boots...
Nicole Powell is a sassy Southern girl who has officially sworn off cowboys after a spate of bad seeds-until her father's death sends her to Montana and into the arms of a man who seems too good to be true. Her instincts tell her to high tail it out of Montana, but she can't resist a cowboy with a slow hand...
Nicole finds herself in lots of trouble when she loses her wallet on a trip to Montana after the death of her estranged father. She is rescued by a handsome cowboy named Wade. He is also a lawyer who is trying to get some control in his life. He is a good hard-working man and it seems that he and Nicole are destined to meet.
This is a modern western romance and I found it enjoyable, but it did have some problems. Wade and Nicole have great chemistry and their courtship is whirlwind. Nicole has a life in the south and hasn't had a good track record with men, including her father which left something missing in her heart. Sometimes she acted too impulsive and stubborn. Wade is the family fixer and he isn't happy right now and his relationship with his brother is strained. While the two were falling hard for each other, I thought Wade was a bit selfish when Nicole reasonably asked for more time and he seemed to give up on their new relationship quickly. When he was younger, he also broke the "Bro-code" with his older brother. And while I liked Wade and Nicole as a couple, sometimes they frustrated the heck out of me.
I hoped you enjoyed some insight into SLOW HAND by myself and my fellow bloggers. Don't forget to join us again next week, March 5th when our topic will be: The Anti-Hero.
