CHEMISTRY WAS NEVER THIS SEXY IN HIGH SCHOOL.
In her sizzling new series, USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby sets the stage for a passionate reunion under the breathtaking Montana sky.
Cara Donovan’s summer tutoring job is turning out to be a challenge—and not just because of her troubled twelve-year-old student. It’s his uncle Josh who’s the real problem. If problem is the word for an irresistibly cocky, muscle-bound rancher with a taste for tight Levi’s and shameless flirtation. . . .
Cara is nothing like the wallflower Josh King remembers good-naturedly teasing in high school. This Cara is gorgeous, confident, fun. From the moment the fiery teacher steps foot on his family’s Lazy K Ranch, the stubborn playboy is determined to corral her. So what happens when his luscious lover takes over the reins?
The first in a steamy trilogy, Kristen Proby’s enthralling novel is filled to the brim with one hardworking family’s triumphs and challenges, all the wild adventure of the modern West, and a whole lot of titillating fun.
I could not wait for one of my favorite author’s, Kristen Proby, to release this book, Loving Cara. A new series, and so much to look forward to. She did us good with those HOT Montgomery brothers in her With Me in Seattle series. And now with Kristen’s new series, Love Under the Big Sky, she gives us the sexy cowboys, Proby style!! And it’s freakin HOT!!!
I devoured this book and fell head over heals in love with Josh. He’s sexy, has a banging body, his face is just breathtakingly handsome, he’s so demanding in the bedroom, so alpha! Just too many delicious things to say about Josh.
Before we get to Josh, let’s start with Cara. You all will “Love” her. You can’t not. She’s the girl next-door you want to bring home to mama; gorgeous, kind, and she’s a school teacher. Already she’s a winner in my book.
She is asked to tutor Seth, a local boy in town for the summer. Seth is now living with his Uncle Josh, who runs the Lazy K Ranch with his family. Seth’s father Zach, Josh’s twin brother is away in Afghanistan, so when Seth’s mother drops him like a hot potato and leaves her son, Josh is left to pick up the pieces. And poor Seth is sad, troubled, and needs guidance.
Josh, is a rancher. A HOT rancher; all jeans hanging low, fitted t-shirt, messy hair and a body to die for. Picture Cara pulling up the Lazy K Ranch and having to see that body all summer long as she tutors Seth. And Josh will charm the panties off of you.
But Cara knows Josh and Zack. They all went to the same high-school, and growing up in the same town, she’s totally aware of his hotness. The town is! You can’t miss those boys!!
Now Cara and Josh pretty much spent the summer together, she will tutor Seth, and then Josh will steal her away. He is totally drawn to her; flirting with her. He won’t stop until he haves her.
Taking her on romantic walks all over the ranch, picnics, and rides on the horses. It really is a picture perfect way to just fall head over heals in love. And that’s what happens.
I realized early in this book how much I freaking loved Josh. He really is so sure of himself. It’s the way he speaks to Cara. He knows what he wants and he’s not afraid to get it, or tell her. He’s up front and right in your face. I love that he doesn’t play games. He’s a simple man; runs the ranch, does his daily chores, has responsibilities, takes care of his brother’s son. All he needs is love in his life. And when Cara walks in she knocks him off his horse and this man, all 6 foot 3 inches of him is done for.
“Because this isn’t a one-night stand for me, Cara. I don’t know where this will go, but it’s not a quick fuck against the wall by your front door.”
Well excuse me Josh. Thanks for letting her know. We appreciate the honesty. Totally fine with that!!
But as much as Josh will knock you over with his mouth, Cara knows what she wants to. She’s very independent, but sees a good thing like Josh and when they finally get together, its fucking SPARKS! These two light up a room with their electricity. And to read it, makes you honestly squirm in your seat. I recall many times being quite uncomfortable reading.
I love Cara because she’s so sure of herself. Josh is HOT in bed, but Cara is just as feisty. Which fucking turns me on so much about her character.
Does this sound like an adorable school teacher to you?
“You need to get naked.”
“I will.” He grins.
“No, I need you. Hard and fast, Josh.”
Go CARA!!! Go get your man!! Hard and fast as she says!! HOLLA!!! I love this girl.
But more than just the insanely hot, smoking sex in this book (maybe read it panty-less) is the love making. The love that grows between these two is beautiful. Josh takes your breath away. He’s so loyal, and ready to take care of Cara. Waking up in the arms of Josh would be a dream come true. And it is for his Carolina. AWW, I love it when he calls her that.
“Get it through that gorgeous head of yours, baby, this is not pity, charity, or just because I’m fucking horny. I want you, Cara, You.” He grip my hair in his fist and pulls me back so he can see whisper in my ear, “You.”
OH SNAP!!! Did I mention he likes to pull hair? Oh the many things I love about his man.
The love story of Josh and Cara is one we all should know and read and enjoy, and re-read. Kristen Proby is one of favorites. And she did NOT disappoint with Loving Cara. She delivers again, with her poetic writing style, her amazing HOT love scenes that melt you. Josh melts you. And Cara, well you just fall in love with this girl. And you are routing for them from the beginning.
Aside from loving these two, the secondary characters in this book totally freaking rock and I am waiting patiently for Kristen to tell EVERY SINGLE story. Next up, Seducing Lauren.
Get on it ladies. Read Loving Cara and get to know the amazing Josh and Cara and their beautiful story. Another 5 star read by Kristen Proby.
I recently was able to spend some time with Josh at the Lazy K Ranch so I could get to know him. He agreed to an interview, so I was really excited. Josh suggested we walk around the ranch so he could show me around.
When I first arrived at the ranch and he greeted me at my car, I nearly died. In person he’s WAY hotter and really freakin tall. And his body is just insanely cut up. He was wearing jeans, a fitted white t shirt and work boots.
As we walk along toward the barn I start to ask him some questions. Boy am I nervous; and it shows.
Trish: Josh, this ranch is amazing. Breathtaking even. And it goes on for miles. Which is your favorite spot?
Thanks, Trish. *winks* There are a few different places on the ranch that are my favorites, but these days, it seems to be wherever Cara is.
Trish: (Holy shit did he just fucking wink??) I know this is your family’s ranch. How important is the Lazy K to you?
Very important. I’m a third generation rancher, and I hope to pass it along to mine and Zack’s children, and our grandchildren.
Trish: That’s sweet Josh. It must have been hard with Zack, your twin, being away in Afghanistan all these years. He would have been a big help around here. But more than that, you just missed out on so many years with Zack. What was that like for you?
Zack is my best friend. I missed him for sure, but he’s back now and I couldn’t be happier.
Trish: But at least you were able to really get to know Zack’s son Seth. Tell me about him.
He’s a typical twelve-year-old in a lot of ways, and then there are days that he seems so much older than that. He’s a good kid with a funny sense of humor and a love of animals.
Trish: Which leads me to Cara Donovan. She was Seth’s teacher over the summer. What was it like having a beautiful woman around the ranch? Of course she was helping Seth. But we all know that wasn’t ALL that happened…..
Having Cara here has been life changing. There’s really no other way to describe it.
Trish: I can see you are quite taken by Cara. Don’t want to give too much away to our readers; leave something to the imagination. But I will say Josh, some of your sex scenes are way fucking hot dude!! Excuse my French.
*blushes* Um… thanks. I think.
Trish: (He’s freaking blushing. Letting out a big HOLLA internally!) Cara may be a school teacher, but she seriously has a dirty mouth, “Hard and fast, Josh. ….I need to remember that I’m alive and I need you to fuck me.”…..wow!! You’ve got a feisty one on your hands!!
Yeah, she’s fucking sexy, isn’t she?
Trish: She is Josh. You’re one lucky cowboy. So, what is your favorite thing about Cara? Could be a part of her body, or something about her personality. Or maybe even something she does TO YOU. Too personal?
Boy Trish, you do like to get personal, don’t you? Hmm… I guess my favorite thing about her is her hair.
Trish: She does have great hair. Okay okay…let’s talk about you Josh. I don’t want to take up anymore of your time. I know you have so much to do on the ranch today so let’s make our way back to the main house and play a game while we walk. Sound good cowboy? (Wink)
I think I should be scared.
Trish: Okay, I’ll say something; a word or phrase and just tell me what’s the first thing that comes to your mind.
