By-the-book event planner Beth Brannigan’s best friend dared her to kiss a cowboy. She should have said no. Instead, she said please…again and again. If her brother finds out she’s dating—okay, kissing—okay, sleeping with—one of his military buddies, he’ll kill her. Assuming he doesn’t kill his friend first.
Former Army Ranger Brick Mitchum isn’t a relationship kind of guy. But then he meets Beth and starts to wonder if maybe it’s time he settled down. She’s mysterious. Unpredictable. Curvy in every way he needs… And hiding something. He’s just got to figure out what.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
One hot weekend of fun is only the beginning for Beth and Brick in Her Secret Ranger. Beth is back in town for her best friend’s wedding, which she’s not only part of but is helping set up as an event planner. It seems destiny really loves Beth when she runs into the hot cowboy she met a fortnight ago at a bar.
Brick can’t believe his eyes when his sweet angel appears before him and kisses his socks off. For the first time in his life, he wants more from a woman than just a quick hookup and never to be seen again. The more he learns about Beth, the more he likes her, and soon they’re starting a budding relationship to see what happens. As days goes by, though, he gets the niggling feeling that she is keeping something from him, he just hopes it is nothing that will get in their way.
Everything was hunky-dory for Beth, she loved her job, had finally saved enough money to go back to college and she is spending time with the sweetest and hottest cowboy ever. Things get complicated when she realizes that Brick is not only ex-military but one of her big brother’s best friends and former fellow Ranger. She knows the second Brick finds out who she is he will dump her faster than she can say hi. Her brother would lose his ever loving mind and kick Brick’s butt if he ever found out, so she really has no choice but to try and keep it from them.
Her Secret Ranger has lots of sexy times, a wide group of ex-military guys giving each other shit and a really sweet hero. I loved how Brick, in spite of being a commitment-phobe until meeting Beth, would calmly confront his feelings and accept them. This was most refreshing. He was sexy and bossy, super hunky and incredibly sweet with his angel.
I had a harder time dealing with Beth’s anxiousness regarding the whole “secret” relationship thing. She was a hard worker, smart and caring. I wish she had confronted her big brother much sooner, not only regarding Brick, but his whole detached thing, but I guess he will be the subject in an upcoming book.
While I thought Beth and Brick together were incredibly sweet and I loved them on paper, for me, something never really clicked. I wasn’t as invested as I could have been with this type of story, so that took out some of the enjoyment for me as I wasn’t, you know, all in. Still, Her Secret Ranger is a solidly good book: fun, light and sweet.
