Em Petrova's Reining Men - Spotlight and Review - 1/5

ReiningMen72lg (2)

There’s no escaping ranch policy—anything to please a lady…

The Boot Knockers Ranch, Book 3

The Boot Knockers Ranch caters to women in all ways. And now rookie Paul is officially part of the team. He’s had six months to hone his skills with the ladies and prides himself on being a prime catch.

Jack would agree. He can’t get the rugged cowboy out of his system. He wants Paul in his bed more than anything, but his best friend has always been resistant to relations with other men. Jack’s instinct says different, but he values Paul’s friendship too highly to push it.

Then Jack takes on beautiful new client Lissy Lofton and finds himself falling hard for the confident show jumper. He’s not the only one. Lissy has caught Paul’s attention, and the attraction is mutual.

But now Jack has a problem. Lissy’s sexual appetite is so ravenous, he doubts he can last the week without backup. Which presents an irresistible opportunity to invite Paul into their bed—where the incandescent heat brings all their walls tumbling down.

Warning: Contains two smoking-hot cowboys whose drive to please the same woman spurs a desire to please each other.


“This lower lip is as ripe as a juicy peach. And this upper one”—he dragged his thumb over the rounded edges—“is a man’s wet dream.”

His dirty words spiked her desire. She wrapped her fingers around his strong wrist. Wide, sprinkled with light hairs, warm from the sun. Damn, she wanted to touch his every inch. For a week, Jack was hers to worship.

And she planned to take total advantage and make the big fee worth it.

His lashes lowered over smoldering eyes the color of sea glass. As a child she’d gathered the remnants from the beach and kept them in a little wooden box her parents had given her. What had happened to that collection?

Who cared? Now she had a new kind of sea glass to admire.

Jack tipped closer until the brim of his hat bumped her forehead. With a warm chuckle, he nudged it up. “Hat on or off, Lissy?”

Her mind bounced around the question. What did she want her first kiss to be like? He was allowing her to choose her path. Her heart swelled with the knowledge of her own power.

“On,” she whispered, her voice a stranger’s.

He angled his head, nose brushing hers. She filled her lungs with his scent—leather, man, hay. All the things she adored clinging to one perfect cowboy.


Ms. Petrova is one of my favorite authors, not because she writes deep meaningful works that inspire me to live a better life, but because her stories are full of imagery that make my pulse race. She writes implausible stories with believable motivations.  Where else can you find a dude ranch for women with sexual disfunctions?  And believe it's a real place?  Okay, I'm wishing here, but in my addled brain, believing and wishing is the same.

This is a hot m/m/f menage story featuring a virgin woman who ends up with both men, and Ms. Petrova makes it all seem so attainable.  I think that's what I like the most about this story--I can see this happening in real life (back to my own addled brain).

There were a few things I didn't like about this story, but they're personal issues.  I thought there was too much of the day-to-day dealings with farm chores that messed with the pacing in some places.  This is probably because I used to live on a farm, and these chores, in my mind, are not sexy.  I also had a hard time with the positioning in one of the sex scenes.  I know this seems nit-picky, but it took me out of the story a little too much to try and think of the possibilities of the particular positions the characters were in and how they got there so easily.

All in all, though, this was a great read.  I don't think it's one of Em's best, as I missed some of the sparkling imagery she puts in some of her other books, but I still loved it, and would recommend it to others who enjoy a hot m/m/f menage/love story.
