In this new Love Under the Big Sky series from a USA TODAY bestselling author, Cara agrees to tutor her former classmate's nephew—and learns some lessons in love!

Josh King is an expert at running his family’s multi-million dollar ranch in Montana. (And all that outside manual labor has done wonders for sculpting his six-foot-three body, too.) But as sure footed as he is when it comes to the ranch, Josh doesn’t know anything about how to deal with an adolescent boy—so when his twelve-year-old nephew, Seth, is dropped off on his doorstep, looking scared and acting surly as hell, Josh knows he needs help in straightening him out.

Cara Donovan loves her quiet life as a teacher in her sleepy hometown, so she jumps at the chance to make a little money over the summer as a tutor. But when she learns she’ll be teaching Josh King’s nephew, Cara’s sweet summer job gets a little bit hotter. Cara tries to focus all her attention on tutoring Seth, but Josh proves to be a delicious distraction, while Josh’s memories of the shy girl he once teased in high school are nothing like the beautiful woman he’s facing now. Can he persuade her that there’s more between them than a summer fling?

Cover:  Not my favourite cover.  Super, cheesy romance cover that if I wasn't reading on my Kindle, would totally be embarrassed to be seen reading on the bus to and from work.  Kinda relevant what with Josh being a rancher, but I have to say that I prefer the cover of Kristen Proby's Seattle series.

I enjoy Kristen Proby's With Me In Seattle series, it's by no means my favourite, but it's a light, fluffy contemporary series that I like to indulge in.  There are ones that I like more than others.
So when I saw she was bringing out anothe series, I decided to pick it up.
It was a very quick read with little substance.  Most of the book was sex.  Which, the first couple of times was hot, but it got kinda repetitive.
The romance just wasn't believable.  Josh and Cara have supposedly known each other for years, from school.  And yet it's just bam!  Suddenly they're attracted to each other when she goes to the ranch to tutor Josh's nephew.
Everything just happened to quickly.  That let down what could have been a pretty cute romance.
Over all, it WAS pretty cute, but it could have been a lot better.
3.5/5 stars.
