He knows he’s found a woman who’s up to the challenge of cutting loose.

Can Channing give up total control? Especially when not all is as it seems with the sexy trio?
My Thoughts
I do love a cowboy, but when you mix together some erotica and a cowboy there’s no way I’m passing that and after reading so great things about this series I decided to join the fun and read them all. I do have  to say not all of them were perfect but in general it was pretty damn good.
The first book we met a McKay and he was just perfect. Strong and a little dominant, but also charming, there’s no way women would pass that right? Plus he’s on the rodeo along with two other sexy Gods.
One night he was getting all hot and bothered with Channing when her boyfriend, another rodeo cowboy, decided to be a jackass and she dumped him. Colby invites her to travel with him and his two buddies, but she needs a open mind and desires lots of sex, because they want her all night. The best part is that she makes all her fantasies comes true and this book is very explicit about it. Lots of sex and a little bit of love.
I loved the fact that one of Colby buddies is from Brazil. Edgard is very handsome, but doesn’t engage in the sex zone, making Channing a little crazy about but he’s actually in love with the other buddy, Trent.
So the book is very full of sex, we have ménage, m/m, and a gangbang, but is everything very good and we can understand Channing changes of feelings. Because after all the sex she realize that her heart is beating faster for just one cowboy and he didn’t made any promises.
I loved the finale and how Channing decide to change her life after discovering more of herself on the tour. Colby accident made me very sad, but came we a reason, plus I can’t wait for Trent and Edgard story.

“Channing, come back here.”
“No,” she tossed off over her shoulder.
“I’m warnin’ you, girl, you don’t want to make me mad.”
“Tough shit, tough guy. Suck it up and walk it off.”
People around them stopped and stared, nudged each other and chuckled, giving Colby a wide berth.
“Last chance,” he yelled.
Channing flipped him the bird without turning around. In fact, she ran away from him like her boot heels were smoking.
He was going to paddle that sassy little ass but good.”
