Wow! This was so awesome. Harper Sloan has fast become a one click author for me and I’m yet to read one of her stories that I don’t get fully invested in and devour. After finishing book one in the Coming Home series, Lost Rider, and falling in love with Quinn, I could not wait to get my hands on Kiss My Boots and read Quinn’s story. I loved every minute as I knew I would.
As stated above, we first meet in Quinn in book one of the series. She is Maverick’s sister and Leighton’s best friend. I absolutely fell in love with her, she was everything I had hoped for and then some; she’s feisty and sassy with a smart mouth to boot. She says exactly what springs to mind with no thought for the aftermath or the consequences that may arise. Plus she fixes cars and has no problem getting dirty and being one of the boys. I have a real soft spot for tomboys and Quinn epitomises what I love about a strong heroine.
For nine years now Quinn has kept her heart locked up and completely given up on the prospect or the idea of love. She was left utterly heartbroken by the one and only person she has ever loved and has never fully recovered from this pain. Her mindset was that if she didn’t open her heart up to anyone again, she wouldn’t risk the chance of being hurt the same way. So what happens when the one person who broke Quinn’s heart nine years ago returns to town? Will she let him back into her heart? Will he even have a chance to win her back?
“He taught me trust.
He showed me love.
Then he gave me pain.”
Tate Montgomery is the man responsible for leaving Quinn completely shattered and heartbroken all those years ago. He had left without explanation and was never to be heard from again, that is, until now. Well he’s back and his main focus is on trying to get Quinn to understand his reasons for leaving. Tate will stop at nothing to win back Quinn, though it’s not going to be easy because Quinn is definitely no doormat. Quinn has no problems standing up and voicing her opinions and there is also the fact she doesn’t think she can go through that kind of pain again.
Tate is such a loveable character; he’s charming, sweet and an all-round good guy. Quinn didn’t stand a chance to be honest, one alluring look and Quinn’s panties literally melted. Tate can thank Homer for bringing them back together again. Who’s Homer you may ask? Well you’ll just have to read to find out. Plus Tate also happens to be the new gyno in town which in itself is guaranteed to make for a fun ride.
Kiss My Boots was such a fun-loving, well written easy going story that I devoured in one sitting. It is a complete stand-alone, so you don’t have to read Lost Rider first, but I strenuously suggest you do. Not only will you get a better understanding of the characters involved, but it is such an awesome series so far and you won’t want to miss out. I wait with baited breath for the third instalment, Clay’s story Cowboy Up. I know that if it is half as good as the first two I’m going to love it.
I think it’s pretty safe to say I would highly recommend this story to anyone who loves second chance love stories involving an absolutely badass heroine and a sweet lovable hero who will stop at nothing to win back the love of his life. This story is just pure awesomeness. Check it out, you know you want to. That’s all folks!
