Review: Make Mine a Bad Boy by Katie Lane


Hope Scroggs is finally ready to get hitched. After years of sowing her wild oats, the former head cheerleader and homecoming queen has returned to Bramble, Texas, to marry her high school flame. But her perfect wedding plans are stomped to smithereens when her adoring cowboy two-steps down the aisle with someone else. Now Hope is stuck with the one man from her past she can't shake: Colt Lomax, an irresistible bad boy whose sultry kisses are hotter than the Panhandle in August . . .

Colt lives for freedom and the open road; he never gets attached, never looks back. Still, he can't forget the night of passion he once shared with Bramble's sweetheart—a night he wouldn't mind repeating. So, he piles on the Texas charm to tease the feisty beauty back into his bed, while she tries her darnedest to resist. But something unexpected is about to tie their fates together . . . and oh, baby, will it ever! 

Hope Scroggs returns to Bramble, Texas, from a five-year absence and thinks things will fall right back into place.  Her life in California is a complete mess, so what Bramble doesn't know won't hurt them.  Little does Hope know, Bramble's bad boy is on a beeline straight for her.

As with Going Cowboy Crazy, we're treated to small-town life that may be a little over the top.  Rumors fly about Hope being pregnant, and Hope is less than kind to Faith, her newly discovered twin sister.  What Hope doesn't want is to feel any kind of connection with Colt Lomax, but the pair are drawn together at every turn. 

Make Mine a Bad Boy isn't as sweet a romance as Going Cowboy Crazy, mainly due to Hope's and Colt's hot-hot-hot chemistry, but it's still a good way to lose yourself for an afternoon in Bramble, Texas.
