Plot Summary:

They remember her as a pesky kid.

She doesn't remember them at all.

Her life's in New York. The property she's inherited is in Bridgewater, Montana. Going back to the town she visited every summer as a child stirs up long forgotten memories and a girlhood crush, on not one teen-turned-hot-cowboy, but two. Cousins Jack and Sam Kane. Fortunately for her, in Bridgewater, one cowboy's never enough.

In this contemporary version of Vanessa Vale's USA Today bestselling, Bridgewater Menage series, Catherine is forced to choose the life she really wants: the big-city lawyer or the small town cowgirl with two men who want to take her for a very dirty ride.

My thoughts:

I'm quickly discovering that Vanessa Vale is just a talented author - I was already pretty sure of it after reading Fight For Her last month, but it's been solidified after reading Ride Me Dirty - she managed to explain and justify a polyamorous lifestyle without it sounding completely nuts (no judgment). I mean what woman wouldn't want two men totally focused on her needs and well-being?

Catherine is a lawyer from New York, working to prove her worth and make partner at her firm, when she has to take time off to travel to Montana and deal with the sale of a property left to her by an uncle she hasn't had contact with in over a decade. She's overworked, overstressed, and undersexed (ha!). On her flight to Montana, she finds herself wildly attracted to the hot cowboy (Jack) sitting next to her. Well, wouldn't you know, he's from the same town (Bridgewater) that she's visiting! He sets out to make a real connection with her, including introducing her to what make Bridgewater really special: the whole community was founded on the acceptance and benefits of polyamory. So Jack and his cousin, Sam, endeavor to show Catherine (aka: Katie) that a life in Bridgewater as their wife would be so much better than the harried and lonely life she's leading in New York.

Final Thoughts:

This was a quick and fun read, full of steam and heart. It does include a bit of insta-love (on the part of the men at least), but the reader soon finds out that that's just the way in Bridgewater, when you know, you know (like "lightning striking"). I definitely want to continue with the series, and though I don't typically like historical romance, I might look into Vanessa's since this particular series is a spinoff of her Bridgewater Menage Series.
